Let's face it, 90% of the time you get withered you're not gonna want to stick around autoattacking anyway since the entire enemy team is gonna be barreling down on top of you. Your instinctual reaction would be to flee -- er, shamble for your life from the hellhound and his cronies. That goes double for your ADC. And if the most AA-reliant person on your team won't want to stick around spamming his right-click, the AS slow doesn't mean a whole lot relative to the MS slow.
Anyway, what I'm getting at is that Riot's latest nerf of Wither is utter (hah udder. You can't milk THOSE!) bull.
On the field of honor, the gods bearing witness to my glory, I will pull your entrails through your eyes and use them as reins to ride your soul to hades below!
Its certainly not useless. As you say, if you get withered, you're probably in a position where you want to flee, so wither still wrecks bad positioning. But now if you're caught out and you have a reactive team, you can just sit and duke it out, maybe burn a flash while still putting out DPS. In this opportunity now, wither is massively needed, because its not an instant shut down button any longer.
Still a wonderful cc that you def don't want to get hit by, but the attack speed slow was not a negligible loss.
His wither is fine now. The problem before was that you didn't have any options. Now you can turn around and fight. If they nerfed the slow too, it would be a useless ability. It is designed to do what it does.
