So I personally spent my winter season mastering Skye. She’s now my most played hero and I’ve got a win rate of around 65% for the spring season.
The reason for my choice?
1- She’s got one of the most interesting kits in the game, she has a very high skill cap but once mastered its incredible fun. Her ult (which has a very low cooldown) is also incredible versatile offering an escape for you or your allies as well as an engage (peeling for your team is very satisfying).
2 - Her CP path hard counters tanky jungle bruisers like Alpha, Krul and Reim. It works well with the new CP items (DE/SF) and it can dish out a tonne of hurt in quick succession (not many are surving two barrages, syuri strikes and an ultimate).
3- Her WP path is viable, and enables you to kite and counter dive assassin comps as you’ll be able to attack and move, attack and move. Whilst not as strong as her CP path it’s certanly not weak (watch Dnzio at worlds if you don’t believe me).
4 - Whilst she’s rarely meta, she’s never potato, she sits in that happy zone where she’s almost always viable thanks to her kit diversity.
5 - She has very few hard counters, which can’t be fixed by switching build path from CP to WP.
