Why is Nasus still able to 2-shot turrets? Why is this champion allowed to go 0/15 in lane and then proceed to take out the entire base in less than a 20 seconds? Nothing wrong with the stack mechanic but nerf the god damn ability to use Q on turrets. If Nasus is allowed to Q turrets, then why not let every champion with a similar ability use it on turrets too? (Rengar, Poppy etc.) Oh wait, that is broken you say? Then remove it from Nasus's kit.

Because if he went 0/15 and you didn't end the game, then you are retarded.

His mechanics are toxic by nature. It's really not hard to play safe as Nasus and Q farm freely- especially if you've got a jungler protecting you for the early levels.

All they need to do to make Nasus fair is make him lose X amount of stacks per death, then he actually has some kind of risk and solid counter-play. Right now it really doesn't matter how awful he plays, as long as the game lasts long enough to get over 300+ stacks.

Any champ who's only real 'counterplay' is 'get your jungler to perma-gank him' really is toxic, in one way or another.

Because you were kind of playing 4v5 for 40 minutes into the game didn't end it and then the afk farming nasus came back with 700 stacks and proceeded to punish you for letting him free farm the whole game and doing nothing against it let alone finishing the game.

Or you just proceed to counterpick him and deny him so hard that he isn't able to get so much stacks.
You can also snowball other lanes while he's afk farming and proceed to win the game.

Nasus also does not have a gap closer and can be kited if your team is competent enough to realize that.

You totally missed the point here.

The problem here is not the stacks, just being able to use those stacks on the turret. If one champion is allowed to use high damage spells on turrets, every champion should be able to.

Nasus would be underpowered if he wouldn't be able to execute his q on towers.
He is a champion that (normally) doesn't build any ad (except trinity) while let's say Rengars build mostly consists of ad items which makes him a good turret pusher even without his enhanced aa.
Poppy has an extremely strong kit which doesn't need to be enhanced by split pushing capabilities.

This also applies to other champions.

Well then they would have to nerf those champions in compensation for giving them better split pushing potential.

You still don't get it.

The champions mentioned were just random champions with on-hit abilities, what is requested is that on-hit abilities works the same on every champion, that they follow the same rules. Nasus should not be an exception to these rules. It is just a bad (old) design that riot needs to update. And if they follow through, Nasus will probably get some compensation buffs, instead of doing all around nerfs just to protect Nasus's unique and broken play style.

All you need to do against nasus is to counter pick him or call for a jungler and deny him farm or kill him the whole game, maybe even make him leave the lane. Then he also doesnt do damage since his Q stacks arent there.
