mathematically, the rate of fire and damage changes you suggested would have not effect on her dps during them... Also damage potential... Have you looked at smoulder recently? or stats of defensive players using her? She will often deal most player damage regardless of role and will easily out minion damage any other character. Her survivability is much higher than that of zoey, also having a reliable escape... And the thing isn't about killing potential, most characters have that in the bag. Cygnus actually has the highest dps, yes higher than zoey, he would win easily if they just stood in one place and shot each other. I don't even really care for her nuke at this point, a little sad if they got rid of it, but I don't depend on it. Though it has made a few saves before.so she has high damage, there are many other characters who do as well, she has no reliable escape. you can also stun her out and waste her ult easily. You also can't argue that she has a lot of health, that she moves quickly, or that she can escape from nearly any fight: she pretty much only has damage and a thing that moves you to her right several feet. Also take into consideration, she's the only character with any real form of randomness to her. You have to pray to RNGEEZUSS.I mean I've argued for so much nerf to her ult, if it makes you happy just get rid of it, I'd be a little sad, but not that much since it's not the core of zoey.
I love Zoey guys i really do, but Zoey right now has no place in the game if you want to play on the more competitive side. Right now there is always a better pick than Zoey unless you really can't play anyone else. Zoey on defense just isn't as good as dobbin/smolder/tundra all 3 of those heroes are just better in pretty much every way. Zoey on offence doesn't provide enough support to minions/lane partner to often it happens that i can manage to kill both defenders and just have my wave die to traps while i sit by and /cry because i can't save them. Bionka/ivy/cygnus/max are all much better attackers. Zoey pillage is just to slow at killing boxes ,uses too much mana, and not enough mobility early game. Threads like this one can discuss how op her damage is and such and how she needs to be changed/rebalanced but at the end of the day she isn't even a real pick right now in a competitive game. She is more of a solo queue hero that can take advantage of poor teamwork.
