Overloads need quickness to be successful in a pvp setting. you have so many quick bursty moves now, ele is so far left in the dust its not even a meme any more just just sad and disappointing. You have reaper shroud that has quickness, u have holos that chain attacks and have every boon imaginable, u have revs and gaurd tele bombing like its the year 3000, you have rangers that have 1200 range 7 second cd that is unchallengeable against an ele , and what does ele have? slow easily disrupted CC skill that really will get you killed 90% of the time if u do it in any meaningful combat situation.
It just lacks reliability of completion. And that can be fixed by giving ele a trait that gives overload quickness
