Usage reflects what's trendy, not necessarily what's strong.
That's like saying that what gets high RP is just trendy because the best players are playing it, not necessarily the strongest thing they can be playing.
Didn't stop you from nerfing:
Elite Fencer (twice)
Ruuca (once but to irrelevance)
Dilate (in two separate ways)
Bog wyvern (twice)
Urgrant (not much of a nerf until you realize that it makes the bad matchups with Lawtia worse)
Mirelia (who's now unplayable at a top tier level)
Rhino (who hasn't seen use since)
RFA (that simply got nerfed against the already-bad matchups)
EXLap (to irrelevance)
Kaldrao (though he had it coming)
And I'm sure there are more on that list, but those are just the metas that the errata team has "de-trended" (to put it kindly) thanks to their bumbling efforts. How many viable metas do we have now?
Lawtia: augments, dolls, big lawt possibly, EN, possibly CMD dolls
pirates thanks to Jewel open, possibly serpent, maybe some urgrant variant?
Refess: mid refess, possibly TJC (cut me a break)
Gowen: possibly Beltorat. BKR is dead since it'll either eat shade and get wrecked by Lawtia or eat jewel tidal and get wrecked by Falkow. Pick your poison.
