I love League's champions, but hate the current gameplay

As someone who has been playing mobas for a long time, League has by far the best roster IMO. I love playing things like Thresh, Ezreal, and Lee Sin. No other moba has champions/heroes that are even comparable to the levels of satisfaction these champions bring when played properly. In fact, in ARAM, I am happy to play 80%+ of the roster. There are only a handful of champions I straight up do not find fun (Trundle, Sejuani, Soraka, Xayah, several others) However, I hate the damage/burst meta vortex that has swallowed this game in the last few years. It all started with keystones, and then runes reforged, meanwhile champions/classes get reworks, defensive items get nerfed, offensive items buffed...all in the last 3-4 years. The damage is absurd at all stages of the game, and I hate it. The only reason I even still play this game instead of something like DotA 2 is because of the roster. DotA 2's heroes are just so god damn boring. I have tried every single one of them, and maybe 5 or 10 are moderately fun. I know there is a lot of negativity going around lately, and I just wanted to throw my hat in the ring as to why I still play this game despite hating the current flow of the game. TL;DR - LoL champions are awesome, but the high damage gameplay is miserable. Other mobas might have better game flow, but their rosters are just way too boring for me to get into.
