Why is Garen considered irrelevant?

Started using him a few weeks back fairly often and I don't see why he's that bad. He does decent damage, almost rivals Kayle at earning CS due to his E, and has a escape(Albeit not amazing one, but it is very valid). His ultimate also guarantees a kill on anyone below 50% health too generally. Last, Garen can also tank decently while still doing a notable amount of damage. Does he just have too many bad matchups, or is outdone by other characters who fulfill the same roles or what? I don't understand what makes him so bad that he wouldn't even be considered competitively viable for the most part.

If anything, because there's very little he can do if you stand more than three feet away from him.

Even so, there are considerably worse picks you could make.

garen is really good up to a certain elo where people know how to counter play (apparently I don't really know considering I'm in silver)

Because people have learned to stay out of bushes.


Most of the time.
