I just came back to HoTS and noticed on twitch streams, fever forums, and in game there is a lot of Nova bashing? Just curious what sparked this since ive been gone...

The fact that Nova is a useless Hero on her own. She's good at NOTHING except killing Heroes, which is one of the least impactful things early when teamfighting and timers aren't as important. There are other assassins that do what she does but survive, which Nova does not, and can kill more than 1 person, and can either do camps, objectives, etc. I think this is why people hate her.

Yep. The Nova hate is from noobs that can't deal with her on the other team and experienced people that want a more useful player on their team. To further this, people will first pick Nova in HL and she is very counterable.

Nothing new...nobody has liked nova since the alpha. She's a 1 trick pony hero and easily countered, but in new player games she's a bit of a god.

Everything Nova does, other characters can do better and also wave clear.

Nova needs her entire kit redone, or she's only going to be useful in QM.

I have noticed that Nova has some interesting talents related to her Pinning shot. If the stars aligned properly, she could deal some warrior-esque slows, and stuns, and even make targets vulnerable. I'm currently am trying a sorta Supporting Nova build but haven't perfected how to use it yet. Anyone else wanna try it out with me?

Doesn't work very well...you still end up being too weak to do anything. If you do anything other than her 1shot build you lack mana to pull off anything cool.

Mostly because when you're low and are like "I MADE IT" after a team fight, she pops up and you die.

Every. Single. Time. Easily countered yada yada, still frustrating as heck when that happens
