kotun, as a guardian, has too high potential as a carry. Although he fades off late game, he has high dominance in early and mid game, in addition to his farming prowess. Most people build him with physical att, rarely with def, which makes him even more of a threat with higher dps and skill dmg. Plus he has a longer range fight initiation than pala, so u'll roughly have an idea hes definitely better than pala(in terms of dmg and team contribution). If you all agree or have different opinions with regards to mine feel free to comment and fill me in.
