Why is Kat a common ban in upper 1300s?

I'm not entirely sure. I find her pretty easy to deal with. She's fairly weak for needing to be on top of your team to do her damage. Enemy team picks Kat? Take Galio. Stomp the hell out of Kat.

I think the issue is that, at that elo, people don't want to break their patterns. I watch people build the same cookiecutter builds with no regard to the enemy team. When I play MF and get super fed off of silly ADCs I rarely see the other team build armor. Usually only my lane opponents actually build something useful against me.

Do people not know about the tab key? I know someone who plays that never uses it to look at the other team's build. I might not be the best player skill wise, but I know how to manipulate the game stats to make my champion as effective as they can be.

For an assassin, her passive needs to die in a fire.

I can't put it any more blunt than that.

She can be dealt with in lane but it's hard to keep her from roaming and getting fed that way, should always be focused in teamfights so she can't use her ult and clean house.

The reason she is banned is the same reason you ban any character, you don't trust your teammates to know how to deal with it.

If people are pushing to the enemy tower and Kat disappears from mid, and you call mia and ping them to be careful, but they stay under the tower harassing and give a double kill to the Kat, they basically screwed you in mid.

The same is basically true of any high damage snowball character. Kat just happens to be new flavor of the month.

How does Kat beat Galio? Please enlighten me. Galio is almost immune to her poke and he heals most of her damage back. The only one worse off against him is Talon. Kat can't stop you from farming and, if she doesn't, you will have a much stronger teamfight presence than her almost by default. Pro tip, poke heavy assassins are made useless by tanky enemies who have ways to sustain through or mitigate their damage. I'm pretty sure people overestimate the effectiveness of assassins in almost every case, Kat is no different.

Galio can't stop Kat from farming. She can just sit back in the rare event she actually loses lane and CS with bouncing blade. Galio can't harass from a range because of how s****y his Q is.

Plus Kat actually deals damage whereas Galio is a bruiser.
