I really like Nova. I know she's currently in a bad spot, but her "fantasy" as a long-range stealth ambusher who can pick off isolated targets is really good right now. I go on binges with her, and 2.0 gave me access to some of her cool skins (if she doesn't have the most skins of any character, she's a top contender).

Anyway, lots of people are playing Valeera, and she is a titanium-hard counter to Nova. After a few times playing the role of "Valeera's dinner" in QM I decided to give the new hotness a shot.

What a dumb character. I don't even know what I'm doing with her. I just pop into stealth, open with any of the three abilities, and then mash buttons while my damage output ticks ever upwards. Get it in trouble? No worries: pop your stealth whenever you damn well please. Nova can't do that until level 20, and it's on a 60-second cooldown.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. And I didn't even play her before her recent nerf.
