Riot stopped releasing over 9000 champs.

I find a good way to know when a champ was too strong is to see them doing well after some nerfs (and I mean real nerfs).
For example, current Kog and Vayne have strong scaling and strong damage kit, and I remember how important were the nerfs on Kog W range and Vayne's Q and R. I hardly remember before the nerf (well they were often banned/always played) but ... damn they surely were some scarry monsters.

PS : Rumble non-bug'ed Q at lvl 5 is quite laughable when compared to other aoe overtime magic spells.
English is not my native langage, I'm sorry about how painful to read my text are :c

Maybe it's a botlaner thing from me but....
Taric+Graves is still too damn good.

Other than that I usually ban malphite/nautilus for his amazing tanky-ness and cc.

Shaco since the nerf is a champ i dont scare and i wont never bann is very very squishy early and late, got no real cc Jack In The Box is no very reliable, low dmg if not fed. the only thing are the ganks that can be very deadly because of his stealth and slow( ganks should be done well ive seen lot of Shacos fail a gank and die cus o theyr squishyness), a well place ward shut his ganks down so he became almost useless.
to play it requires a lot of skill and experiece and its still not worth it.
I scare more Darius who can lose his lane 0-4 lose tower and lose farm and still carry games with his ult and turn the tides of a game if not properly takrn care of.
He is not the only also Morgana, Amumu, Malphite, Blitzcrank meh can get some carrying grabs against newb players, Diana... ecc are scarying and need a ban

With how the current meta is played, people ban those champs that either A) snowball out of control, or B) have massive late game potential. These tend to be the reasons why you see the popular bans of Malphite, Amumu, Alistar, Darius, Diana(although not so much anymore), Morgana, TF, Blitzcrank, and Darius.
Thank you Arcana for the Signatures!

Hmm, following Polsemanden's logic:

Top picks: Rumble, Kayle;
Mid picks: Swain, Orianna, Vladimir (if versus a Morgana or a Galio), Diana;
AD Carry: Tristana, Vayne;
Support: Taric
Jungle: Diana, Nautilus;

Bans:

Malphite;
Alistar (if I'm going botlane as Taric, since he's annoying);
Shen (annoys me too much)
Blitzcrank (if I'm not going botlane, or I don't know any of the botlaners)
Whatever my team desires
Riven or Yorick (if I'm going to first pick rumble)
Thank you Byron for 2014's loudest laugh up till today

If possible, if you aren't going to ban, pick Swain, because he wins mid most of the time.
