OEM is perfectly balanced (not)

WARNING! Surprisingly enough, it's an opinion. I might be wrong about the matters that I'm going to to discuss. Take it with a cool head and positivity, please. Before you start flooding with your "git guds" and "you don't play enough crucible" let me tell ya - I'm about to reset my Valor rank for the 3rd time this season and I'm on the last part of Luna's quest. I play crucible almost daily and use a variety of weapons, from Cerberus +1 to Le Monarque and Tatara's gaze. And I think that OEM is simply ridiculous. I know this was mentioned many times, but the fact that OEM has remained dominant since its first appearance in September really bugs me. I'm not calling for massive nerfs, but I think that it should be toned down SLIGHTLY. I'm a hunter main, but I sometimes play Titan too. And I DO appreciate the fact that titans got an exotic that works really well in Crucible. But I just finished a game of Countdown against 3 OEM and guess what? My team lost 6-1. (I did OK, snatching the top place on my team). It isn't the overshield that bugs me the most, it's the TRACKING. Not a single exotic weapon or armor gives you so much Intel about the enemy (with the exception of Wishender, but it's a bow and you don't see it too much). Sure Foetracer provides tracking, but it disappears rather quickly if the enemy hides. Knuckle head gives enhanced radar, but it's not really OP since you can't tell the EXACT position of the enemy. If you don't finish off a titan with OEM instantly (a sniper shot to the head or something like that), you're in trouble. You won't be able to push against them - the wallhack will allow to prefire. You can't run away (I don't think there's a range limit). I guess there's an effect of tunnel vision, where the titan concentrates on one player with the mark, but decent players will use the radar as well. Despite all the mentioned above, I don't want this exotic to be nerfed to the ground - I like the idea of challenge. But something must change. Maybe give tracking a range limit or shorten the duration. Maybe keep it as it is, but penalise by removing the radar for the duration of " vengeance". Again, I have nothing against fun and powerful exotics, but OEM is just straight up too powerful in its current state. Stay positive and good luck, Guardians!
