Why the billy nerf is ACTUALLY bad (not about his lethality)
I see most people talking about how this nerf has made billy significantly worse, and while I do partly agree with that I think there is a bigger issue. After playing the PTB and live to refresh myself of billy it's easy to see the fun of playing him has gone down a lot. With the new overheat mechanic you are forced to do an easy, safe backrev on someone or you might overheat. All the fun types of chainsaws now are pretty much impossible just because if you miss them you have to wait to try again. Let's say you chainsaw over to someone. 40% charge. You then attempt a difficult chainsaw (curve,etc) and you miss. 75%. Now you can't attempt anything else until you either wait for the 75% to go down or actually put yourself into cooldown because then it recharges faster. I might be ok with the overheat mechanic depending on how it's done but for now it's clear this removes all fun of playing billy...
