Restrictions on the power of Axe

No matter how perfectly built, the hero also brings certain weaknesses. Especially with a strong early game hero like him. You can review the following points:

Slow movement speed is easy to be caught

When Axe moves big body is a weakness. In many games, he became the focus of good Carry champions. If you are a smart player, you should give yourself the equipment to support the movement.

The first is to increase the mobility of the Ax. The second is to improve the General’s Farm ability.

Cooldown is long

Possessing hegemony skills but Ax’s cooldown speed is quite long. Players need to equip themselves with accurate calculations before launching. Because if Ax’s Ulti failed to defeat the enemy, it would take quite a while. The ax will take quite a bit of time to prepare for the next attack.

Late games are easy to become targets for the enemy team. Because he is slow and difficult to become strong, thanks to the build, Axe easily becomes a good bait. You should go with the team when turning to Late game to avoid being caught and hit & run to death.
