Dev on tank ekko

Unusual Playstyles | /dev diary - League of Legends
Can you get banned for playing AD Thresh? Why did Riot nerf Tank Ekko? Meddler talks about unusual or "off-meta" playstyles, and how Riot feels about them.

I'm just curious about the difference​ between tank ekko and bot Lane ziggs. I saw what you are saying about having trade offs, and I'm just curious of why ziggs bot is viable while tank ekko isn't. With ziggs bot Lane you get what you would with any ADC expect he is AP, you still get a champion with high consistent damage with his low cooldowns, with his charge and passive you still take down turrets quickly. With tank ekko you are just like any other tank, Nautilus for example has just reliable CC as ekkos w and with his massive shield he can take blows like ekko with his ULT. The trade off being with tank ekko you can't one shot carries like AP ekko so you lose a massive amount of damage​to take the blunt of a fight for a team. I'm just curious on your thoughts of why tank ekko is bad?
