    He has one of the worst warrior scalings, and his passive is virtually useless because it requires him to get kills when his ultimate was up.
    Odin is a set killer, I get more than 25 assists each game. That was when he was weak in your state, season 2. But people always want more. I set multi kills for my team, so why not getting some kills for myself.

    Bringing Combat Blink as a counter to one ult in the game? Isn't that ridiculous? Also he doesn't need to kill for passive, those ppl needs to die in it. When you are picking Odin, ask a Zeus or Posiedon and Hou Yi to be on your team. You have your passive fully loaded on 2 team fights. lol

    Buffing for Odin was the reason behind the greed for kill, He has a great poke and one of the best ults to set kills for teammates. He needed help but not on something w/o no counters. If it gonna stay that way, then anti heal must go.

    Odin has more cons than Anubis...Anubis the most immobile God in-game. Why? Well let's take a look shall we:

    Pros:
    • High Burst
    • Team oriented ultimate
    • Early-mid to late-mid oriented
    • Counter to healing
    • Decent sustain

    Cons:
    • Burst is connected to his sustain ability and escape
    • His 3 was laughable, the slow wasn't even noticeable and the ability barely did damage
    • Early game high mana consumption
    • Lowest scalings compared to most warriors
    • Less utility outside his ultimate (Chaac has more utility than Odin)
    • 99% of the Gods in the game can outjuke his ultimate back in S2 to the point that even Hel despite the anti-healing could dance around Odin in his own ultimate. Even Anubis was a fear factor against any Odins.
    • His passive stacks can't be built unless his ultimate is up which killing a God still takes a long measure of time to even get stacks.

    So not only did you want to destroy Ah Puch and Apollo, but Odin too? I don't know what your average of balance is other than taking down Gods that you find as anti-fun.

    To put it simply, play Thor...
    Thor's checks Odin in everything simply because of his 1.

    But you also got to be good at Thor.

    Also other things come to mind like second guessing him, crippling him so he doesn't squish you, and move insanely erratically... all I've got.

    Destroy? You think they will be destroyed with a partial reworks? You think you are bringing some great stats to the table. I see the stuff from the gaming exprience, stats are good but they are not efficient, Odin with one push of button, put everyone in a box, and disables all the healings, if that is OK in your book then it goes to that simplicity that everyone is looking for. Odin needs utility on his kit but the ult doesn't fit the game now. It is too rewarding for one button, based on your statement, beads, aegis, combat blink, sprint, was ok. They were touched for being eay to use and abuse, same goes with the gods I mentioned. It is the matter of playing if you couldn't do good with a god doesn't he was bad, just like the stupid buff on Ullr, he is hard to play, I can't do shit, lets make him even stronger.

    If we balanced gods on "anti-fun" none of the gods we play would be fun.

    Very true, I just feels weird about ult, it seems too strong for meta.

    Every time I feel like ppl are abusing cc or burst meta I get my Loki, builds full cdr and annoy the shit outta them and call it a day :d

    Previous buffs to odin and now the removal of combat blink made him extremely strong. Most of the odins buy 20% cdr so 9/10 times atleast one of enemy gods will die in his ult.

    Adding Combat Blink back is the single worst balance change HiRez can do at this point besides adding old standing Aegis/Beads back. Blink needs a buff in charge time to three seconds, sure. But zero is overshooting it to the point of the ultimate noob crutch and with its current cooldown and (zero) price, LoL flash.
