Yeah, it is simplified, but most people don’t understand a more complex answer. And statistically speaking, yes, winning more often than losing indicates that a character is not balanced, how to balance them is the hard part. The devs have ALREADY ADMITTED she is overpowered, I’m not trying to argue that she is, I’m trying to help those who may not understand why she is.
If you disagree, that’s perfectly fine, she still is, and she’s still being nerfed, and I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding about how balance is achieved in video games.
And nobody is talking about 3 out of 5 engagements, why would you ever use that small of a pool? Personally I’ve been in hundreds of brawls with her already, and I assure you the statistics gathered by the game already indicate what I know, that the character is outperforming others in her class. Most characters in a balanced game WILL come out with a close to %50 win ratio, the variances should not be that much, but if after a nerf, the devs have already agreed that she has issues, then I assure you, the data backs this up.
I just firmly believe that if anyone objectively looks at her kit, they should come to the same conclusion, she has more tools in her kit than any other character, they don’t share helix options, so you can stack lots of them, she has abilities no other character has, and in some cases her basic abilities outperform other character’s ults of the same nature (her pull vs Kleese’s ultimate pull for instance) She projects an AOE passive that has more abilities stacked on it than most people get on an active ability, she is one of the few characters in the game with a silence, one of the few with a pull, the only one with a complete healing negating ability, the only one who can sprint while attacking, the only one with an on-by-default 2 second stun (Boldur’s throw only gets a slow and you have to spec into it, every knockback stun is situation dependent) she has ranged attacks, a slow, she heals nearby teamates, she has an ult which heals her and drastically reduces damage taken while making her hard to hit, she has a spin attack already in her combo that lets her hit all surrounding enemies… she does everything you could ever want in this game.
Name an ability on any character which she does not have which is better than what she does have.
If you compare her to the kit of any other character, what you see is more, more, more. She has more options and powerful abilities than any other character, she has more CC options, and she doesn’t suffer any penalty anywhere in her kit for this, she’s not extra squishy, she doesn’t deal low damage to make up for all of the benefits she provides her nearby teammates, she still wrecks damage-wise.
