Are Meta Champions, Items, etc Stronger than they used to be?

I just want to know if it's not just me that thinks the Meta has become so much more defining than it used to be. Almost every strong champion nowadays wins lane and carries or just does super well. I hardly ever see an Irelia, Aatrox, Klepto Viktor, or any meta champion do bad. But even just 2 seasons ago you didn't feel completely hopeless when the enemy team had 3 S Tier champions. I think it's due to Riot just constantly changing the game, separating Bad from Good champions more and more without realizing it. This isn't supposed to be a rant, I just want to know other people's opinions on this. The meta has become super oppressive.
