Valla shouldn't be listed as an 'easy' hero

General Discussion
Sure her abilities themselves might seem intuitive enough and simply designed, but she requires an immense amount of positioning knowledge to avoid dying and still get good dps. She has relatively short range compared to Raynor, and no reliable self-sustain other than her hungering arrow lifesteal vs heroes. She should be relabeled as a 'medium difficulty' hero at the very least. I find GENJI to be an easier hero to play than Valla.
Valla has one of the lowest health in the game, it does make it a little harder with other mobile heroes. She's pretty glassy for an outdated hero. She needs upgrades to catch up with the time. She is still fun, but she could use some tweaks.
Valla is as easy as it gets to play to a reasonable level.

To play well, sure that's hard, goes for every hero
By your stupid reasoning, there should not be any hero that's labelled as "easy" in this game.
think the label was given back when she had more health lol
so every hero should be labeled hard except for genji?
Tanks are definitely easier for noobs. My GF had MVP with Stitches and Diablo so many times. Playing Valla or Jaina, she dies 10 times atleast and has least damage than those tanks =)

Valla AA is one of the hardest hero, I agree. Need a team comp to support her like Illidan.
Valla with Q is easier.
From playing Valla for a few games I think the secret to successfully play her lies on the good use of her E. You can quickly unload your DPS, and a few AA if possible then dash away with your E.

Never stay stationary with Valla, and certainly don't push your luck auto attacking too much especially against team compositions that are very mobile and can close the gap to you instantly.
If you don't think valla is easy it's probably because you're a stoned loser.
AA build requires ONLY positioning and you won't need to press a button all game. Also, basic attacks heal with the right talent (level 13). At level 20 you can solo forts even without a minion wave. You can out heal the core damage at 20 with 10 stacks of hatred too.

Valla is hard in high leagues and drop dead easy in lower ones.

Why you people fixate so much with all these classifications like tank vs bruiser, solo tank or easy/medium/hard? Who cares? Valla mains offended their main is considered "easy" by Blizzard?

Before you say "new players" - no they dont, they jump into the game right away without reading anything.

To be honest you are probably right.

Who the character is (Blizz games nostalgia) and how much they cost where the 2 things that probably matter more than the "Easy" to "Freaking Alarak" difficulty system.
The label is back from pre-rework Valla, who was, indeed, very easy to play. I'd say she's the same "easy" as Li Li. Simple enough to be decent at her, deceptively difficult to be really good, especially against enemies who know what they're doing.

AA build also only works out once in a blue moon because most teams will poke her and won't let her get stacks.
Mechanically Valla is easy.
This easy/medium/hard/very hard tag should be removed from the game because that it is inconsistent (what are the characteristics of an hard hero?) and outdated.
