Since his recent nerfs he dropped to a 40% win rate in solo que which is second lowest to karma. You might think win rate means nothing but it does reflect a champions viability in solo que.

Syndra and rengar are even higher than him...

Lol, what did he get nerfed?
I just remember his passive on ult getting replaced and redesigned, nothing else.
Makes no sense that his win rate fell so drastically.

Most of his dmg was due to his armor pen i think that was real thing huge hit.

means more noobs unlocked and started to play him in ranked having no idea what he's about.

that's my humble guess.

from S3 preseason most of us already knew he was very good in the jungle, but jungle is not as good as laning, and i've seen people dare going to gank 15~20min in and having no boots whatsoever.

Basically it wasn't the nerfs. He just got phased out by better picks. That means that only baddies and people trying him for the first time play him. This leads to what I believe scientists call(and you can correct me on this if I'm wrong) A metric **** ton of losses.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

Olaf was NOT phased out by better picked. Pretty much all of the season three changes benefited him, and he was a guaranteed pick or ban in pro play.

Hey might be overnerfed, but I doubt it. Any champion that gets nerfed is going to heavily fall in win rate, because people will try to do things that only pre-nerf olaf could do.

Either way, I would rather have him over-nerfed than have him be the way he was pre-nerf.

Q, W and R were nerfed, I can't recall exactly what on each (Q slow decays over tiem now, W I think has a higher CD, ult's passive armor and mres only exist while ult is activated now). I think I may be missing some stuff.

He is still viable, but as said above there are many bad players picking him or trying to do with him what they were used to. People just don't know when they can be the Olaf-Truck running for carries anymore.

I still see decent Olaf players. What nerf? and you shouldn't base your entire opinion on win percentages.

Eejits seeing him played by people like Voyboy in tourneys, and trying to jump on the Olaf bandwagon.

Nerfs might well have contributed to the change in stats, but people's stupidity/overconfidence with FotM champions should never be underestimated.
