Regardless of whether it is or is not unfair, Leon's gameplay feels unfair. The way to counter his stealth-kill style of gameplay is, effectively, to never be alone or at low health at any time. It's very freedom-restricting, and in games, freedom = fun. When you do get successfully assassinated by a Leon, the feeling is something along the lines of: "Well he's just hiding out and waiting for an easy target. Any braindead monkey can do that if he waits long enough. It doesn't take any skill." And it's frustrating to feel like you've just died because of that: you got punished for being proactive.

Again, not saying that's actually accurate, because it can be very difficult to be a successful Leon. Just that that's the feeling I think many players (esp new ones) get when they get killed by a Leon. Much less when one taunts after getting a stealth kill. In general, getting killed by things you can't see coming at you in games is guaranteed frustration, no matter the circumstance.

I can't remember the last time I died to sneaky invis Leon. They usually brawl me 1v1 and win. And that's frustrating because 90% of Leon players are * and also play better than me. And I'm awesome and hawt! And they're *. :tear:

Most hated Leon for me is a team member Leon who thinks his only job is to stay alive himself and stay cloaked and hidden as long as possible, and when others have done 90% dmg to enemy, then perhaps finish him off. For example attacking turrets would be out of the question, since that would make him visible.

No *, Sherlock. What do you want, should I provide the mathematical equation as to why people dislike Leon? I'll get right on that. :facepalm:

Indeed, a popular opinion not only in Awesomenauts, but other MOBAs, too.

A "subjective" opinion is tautological tautology.

You shouldn't get mad over nauts that you don't know how to play against frankly, especially one considered actually meh rn.

They do. There was once a very popular topic here about Leon. Specifically him dressed in a very certain style. That was a great topic. At one point, it was my most posted-in topic. It was locked due to Leon prejudice.
