Ok, so ive been playing neeko a fair bit and one thing i notice is that her base damage on her Q is fairly absurdly high. Her ratios are alright.... maybe a bit of tweaking there... but her level 2 poke nearly half healths any non tanky champion (or anyone who didnt get a bit of health). This leads to a highly oppressive lane in mid especially, but also in top.
So yeah, if her Q damage is nerfed, that would balance her a bit more and make it feel a little less oppressive. 300 damage easy pokes level 2 is pretty rough for enemies.
