My suspicions come from the number of high-priority bans.

List of most banned champs (2012 - current)
- Thresh
- Draven
- Elise
- Jayce
- Hecarim
- Zed
- Zac
- Nautilus


- Nunu (only since the 3.8 patch)
- Blitzcrank
- Twisted Fate
- Shen

List of 2012-2013 champions that USED to be most banned until they got nerfed hard
- Diana
- Rengar
- Kha'Zix
- Vi
- Darius

Conclusion : The majority of solo queue bans are newer champions. They all got the nerf bat and they're still drawing bans. I think riot releases champions at an overpowered state most of the time, then they slowly nerf them.

What do you guys think of my suspicions? If it's true the dual-wielding gun guy will be OP unless he's one of the rare cases like Quinn and Syndra.

I thought this was widely known already?
They release overpowered champions so people would buy them. Who wants to buy someone who isn't top tier?
How dare the Gods work against me! I don't remember giving them permission.

This "theory" goes around whenever a new champ is announced and then released.

Then a month or two later no one plays them

Then a pro player uses them and then people used them again which causes the cry of "they are OP NERF!!!"

Apparently the new champion's skill set has no CC at all and will be purely focused on damage.

List of champions this year:

-Aatrox (considered a joke)
-Lissandra (underplayed by a lot)
-Zac (debatable)
-Quinn (Joke but definitely usable despite that)
-Thresh (OP, but not for damage)

Then how do you account for things like the releases of Yorick, Elise, Lee Sin, Syndra, and Quinn?
