For the last month there was like 4-5 topics of people complaining about the halo baron combo, probably more but I’m being conservative. In the game chat and on discord not a day went by where people would call it op or call for a nerf. Obviously it was not an intended interaction for her passive, I think everyone could agree on something that needed to be changed. Halfway through the month they increased the time between each strike and it still didn’t make a difference.
To be honest, shes far from useless, Gold Halo’s where still very common before the introduction of platinum. In fact, she was statistically the 2nd best energy hero in Pvp in April patch. Each heroes platinum ability provides either small team buff or a unique addition to their existing skill set. Just because her lighting cant trigger 50 times a second doesn’t make her unplayable, but it sure did make her a lot stronger then what was intended.
It would be ridiculous for the team not to make changes from month to month, if nothing was ever changed then PvP would be IMPOSSIBLE to play due to how broken savage, razor, and halo all where at one point. You combine them all it would just come down to whoever jumped out a head first, which would be no fun at all.
