He's still fun... and when he first came out his multiplier was high enough to make people sit up and take notice. I still like to run him on no RCV dungeons. It's just that he's always been on the cusp of greatness and the buffs to other FF peeps got us all excited and then he pretty much got.... bupkis. The killer awakenings make him a great situational sub, but don't help him reach the tier of usability that a collab leader NEEDS to be at to get enough people to invest in him. They restrict him heavily with no sub color on a 5 color lead, binds/blinds/jammers/poison mechanics ALL messing with him (although his scaling makes the jammers/poisons less problematic), no self-damage enhancing worth mentioning (enhanced orbs on somebody who needs 5 different colors is not a great enhancement), no self-utility (bind clears, orb refresh/L Meta equiv/tons o time extend), AND they make him super rare. They erred on the side of caution in not making him OP and instead you get a tease of what greatness he could have been.
