to be clear, I'm not an Aatrox player at all. But seeing one of the most iconic champions in the game lose his identity completely breaks my heart. I get that he's kinda strong currently, but removing his revive mechanic isn't the correct answer to that. Now it's just a shittier Riven, and I already see his playrate/winrate dwindle.
