Why doesn't anybody play Galio anymore?

Honestly, I forgot he even existed until yesterday. Always seemed like a pretty good champ.

Ad mods being viable hurts him a bit so you can't first pick him still a decent counterpick though.

Only useful as a counter-pick against mages even then if there's someone that can easily interrupt his ult (like Nautilus or Garen for example) then he's useless.

Since there are approximately 1000 champions in the game, it is inevitable some of them aren't going to be played as much as others.

Because the concentrated hate of all AP mid players that have ever laned against a Galio gave rise to a psychic wave which incapacitated all but the most hardcore Galio players.
Jokes aside, Galio was never truly popular, if I remember correctly. He goes for a short spike in popularity and then... fades away. Which is fine for me because laning against someone who feels like Rammus got a ranged nuke based on his armor rating is about as fun as hitting yourself with a stick. Every time Galio lands a Q I curse his passive.

warmogs killed a lot of ap champ/tank.

Unless you have %based dmg, constant aoe to proc liandry or crazy amount of CC, you are not top picks.

yeah this is it pretty much. Champions without CC just don't do as well as others. But it's a challenge to use them though.
