3: Being countered in fights easier than ever due to the whole Mark thing that screams loud and clear to the enemy team "Kat is about to commit."
4: Putting the heal reduction on the ult is useless outside of someone trying to Heal through it, when it was mostly used for winning trades in lane.
5: Not compensating us for KI's lost damage.
6: Not compensating us for KI > BB lost full damage.
7: Changing her playstyle completely.
8: And this list probably goes on much longer than 7 items.
My idea was more or less formed at the bolded point. I have a couple of friends like this. All they do is play kat because they can pubstomp normals hard with her. These so called dedicated kat players don't like her for her playstyle, because vs anyone good, her playstyle gets shat on, they just like to pubstomp with her. She plays differently now, better keep playing her the same way and hating all day.
