Recently I've been playing more of Odin and I have to say HE IS SOOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!! I used to be on the bandwagon of Odin being boring to play and no fun at all.
With all the Chang'e recently I've been picking him up more and more. His early game is one of the best in game as well as having a good transition into a late game frontliner with his shield being able to soak up solid amounts of damage as well as his birdbomb doing moderate damage even late game to squishes.
His ult is a large aoe antiheal/environmental cc(No idea if wall type entities have a different name but that's what me and my buddies call it) which energizes well with ults such as Hou Yi, Poseidon, Vulcan, Cabra tremble, etc.
To sum up this short summary (rant?) despite being easy(Which should never affect the fun factor of a character) to play he is a great solo laner with great potential to snowball with good lategame utility.
