    TIL Footwork resets the cooldowns on his Q and W and restores mana.

    Edit: Apparently it doesn't. And here I thought I'd discovered some OP Louis combo. Is there something I'm missing?

    Louis was changed quite a bit.

    Q
    and W don't give full evasion.
    40% damage reduction (goes up to 50% in a future buff) [Previously you dodged literally everything except when punching]
    Blinds can blind you while you're dashing. [Previously you dodged literally everything except when punching]
    But stuns are still evaded. [unless you are punching.]
    Stun Duration: 1 second stun from the previous 1.2 seconds.

    E now gives a buff [Previously reduced cooldowns for Louis' : A, Passive, Q, W and R by 10 seconds.)
    10% att and 10% movement speed.
    Gives full evasion to Q and W (makes Q and W dodge everything) [Basically Pre-Change Louis]

    R's windup time got reduced to match with Q and W's stun duration reduction. (So Q into R or W into R still land 100%)
    Beginning of the Punch: 1.2 stun to previous 1.5
    Knockdown Punch: 1.2 stun to previous 1.5
    Other than that Louis' ult just got some shuffled damage values.

    I'm going to go ahead and update the post as outdated.
    Sorry for the confusion man.

    Edit: Cleared up somethings.

    I dislike it but Louis was unbalanced and the changes were necessary.

    Main issues were the:
    -6-7 second stun
    ---He could stun more than 1 person for 6-7 seconds. (4-man)
    ---Not being able to move for 6-7 seconds is generally not fun.

    -Capable of 1 combo kills on Strikers with a Bruiser build.
    ---He had too much potential damage output.

    I've landed multiple 4 man stuns in KR which turns losing games on their heads.

    It's definitely not enjoyable for an opponent to rely on a teammate to stop a Louis' combo.
    Not to mention that ranked is also Solo Queue.

    That's my point of view.

    The stuns are the reason why I really liked Louis. When I messed around with him in alpha, I realized that glass cannon wasn't the was to go and CC is king. I had to position Louie to scramble the most targets so the team can mop up. I practiced his stun chains for a while but couldn't quite get them but I thought I would go a meaty bruiser build on the tank side and get in the thick of the enemy back line.

    When I look at it. Louie can't pull out people from under a tower but can lock targets down which is probably more important once towers become ignorable.

    I also like Louis a lot, though I'm more of a Kurenai main. Even without playing his old kit I could see it being super OP. Even now I regularly get 2-3 man combos (now if only I could get a team that would follow up). Kind of sucks how much blinds screw him over since his abilities count as regular attacks. Playing against Tatyana as Louis is hell.

    I love baiting the nade. That's literally all she has or she have to forfeit ult.
