perhaps you overlooked the part about removing the passive from his ult?
removing it altogether without giving something in place of it is too harsh, and its going to kill him.
using his R for burst to burn in a 1v1 works great. using his R in a teamfight is a joke. any opponent with the most cursory knowledge of Olaf is going to focus you down before you get anywhere near a squishy. the whole point to his R was the passive. now its gone and we are left with a useless ult
, except to use as a CC immunity for escapes.
