Certain heroes have abilities that are based on chance. Chance is perfectly acceptable for preemptive, follow-up, and counter attacks, but the fact that you can't count on some abilities makes that ability unreliable and the hero in turn becomes unreliable. Here are some examples of hero skills that are annoying to me:

Deadpool-Happy to See You Happy to See You

Deadpool is supposedly only truly phenomenal when he acquires the
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 022
 Super Heroic buff, which in turn requires him to have randomly acquired
Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 118
 Level 16 Ranger and then uses the Happy to See You ability. In any battle, regardless of whether it's PvP or PvM, the hope of acquiring the
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 022
 Super Heroic buff is a completely random and unreliable process. In the meanwhile, you must struggle along with a hero with mediocre health and damage. There is already enough chance involved in turn order, chance to hit, damage dealt or received, and criticals. There are better heroes to use than to hope that Deadpool will suddenly become awesome. In practice, I've yet to obtain the
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 022
 Super Heroic buff in any battle ever with Deadpool.

Scarlet Witch-Chaos Shield Chaos Shield

Scarlet Witch can be quite a useful blaster, and I understand that all of Scarlet Witch's powers relate to manipulating "chance". Whereas
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 006
 Probability Field is a fine example of a good power that is chance based,
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 037
 Chaos Shield is not. When I need to clear my team of debuffs and heal damage, I can't rely on
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 037
 Chaos Shield to do the job. More often than not, it doesn't land on the team member that needs it the most. If either the regeneration or the buff removal/replacement of
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 037
 Chaos Shield were chance based while the other effect was 100% then I could rely on Scarlet Witch, but as it is, she's too unreliable for my taste.

Valkyrie-Sacrificial Blessing Sacrificial Blessing

Valkyrie's Sacrificial Blessing is another example of a ability that is too much driven by chance. If the
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 141
 Deathwatch buff were 100% on Valkyrie and slightly lower rates on the teammates (or vice versa), then Valkyrie would be a true Asgardian powerhouse. Instead, it's another roll of the dice whether my team will be awesome or mediocre when I use this skill. Top it off with the 25% damage to Valkyrie makes the math for this skill to not work out.  Don't get me wrong.  Valkyrie is a great bruiser that got me into Vibranium League one season.  I'm just saying that this skill is unreliable.
