Aatrox was recently reworked to this current monstosity. Unlike what people think, he's not like a riven. A riven has combos which let her stop an enemy from reacting and aatrox has none of that. He's just a shittier Kled, without the awesome character. His voice lines suck, his voice is annoying to hear, his normal walk animation is boring(and cringy if you make him go fast with it), he's much too clunky (especially for making combos), his GA which is his only appealing aspect runs out, his q is even harder to hit, his early game is cancer but he falls off harder than panth, which makes him either cancer for the enemy or cancer for you. He's just not fun, to play with, as, or against.
But it gets worse when you look at what riot took away from us. Old Aatrox was actually good! He had a fun, interactive, and skill expressive kit that worked a lot on your champion knowledge. He had cool voice lines, and a distictive look with his banner wings and his wet noodle sword. His early game was bad but not cancerously so. His late game was good but he could be dealt with. He had made it to the pro scene and there was even a rank 1 Aatrox main in Korea(link is above). My point is that Aatrox was reworked for completely no reason. He was just reworked because an Aatrox from a year ago was bad. The quick fixes almost completely balanced him. So please riot. Just revert Aatrox.
