My other issue which I didn't mention, is her scapegoat of a speed-boost. It seems rather...well, unfair that she can move with immense speeds after supposedly "exposing" herself after a Q->E->W combo in lane.
To honest, It does seem
a bit broken, but I don't think it's because of her new W. I think it mainly comes from her passive. I think it's alot like the problem that AP Yi faces. You get a kill for the reset, and it's awesome...if you don't it's meh. However that situation was present before the re-work as well. It's just that some of the damage got moved from her ult to her W. Now you need to land more skills to get similar damage.
The reason why I only said it seems broken
is because the data seems to indicate that it's not, being that she loses slightly more games than she wins. (ref:http://www.lolking.net/champions/
Also, her rise in popularity seems to indicate that more people are willing to play her than before. I kinda assume that means more people are happier playing with her re-work than they were with her before. Not that popularity should mean everything though.
edit: her win rate climbed to 50.08% while this thread was going on! She broke the 50% barrier!
