The OCG rulings say otherwise, like this one

If the effects of "Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo" are negated by the effect of "Skill Drain", the Destiny Counters placed on itself are removed. Also, if "Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo" is flipped face-down by the effect of "Book of Moon", the Destiny Counters placed on itself are removed.

and this one

If a "Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo" that already had placed 2 Destiny Counters on itself activates its effect to place a Destiny Counter on itself and the opponent activates "Enemy Controller" in a chain to take control of "Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo", the winner of the Duel is the controller of "Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo" at the time it places a third Destiny Counter on itself. Therefore, the opponent, who activated "Enemy Controller" and took control of "Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo" is the winner of the Duel

Reasons this will never see the banlist.

3 Lv 8 monsters...difficult summoning conditions.
Give up back row and attack for the turn to engage auto-win condition...leave yourself wide open.
Opponent manages to remove Xyz Material or Counters from it...Multiple means of thwarting win condition.
Opponent chains Enemy Controller to 3rd activation...OPPONENT CAN STEAL YOUR WIN CONDITION.

I'm I'm going to be overlaying 3 Lv 8 monsters, I'd probably just go for Neo Galaxy-Eyes and annihilate you the old-fashioned way...then again, if I've got 3 Lv 8 monsters out there's a good chance I can do so without going any deeper into my Extra Deck at all.

Won't be banned

I was shocked to see the win condition could be stolen.

I was wondering of what deck this could go into. Maybe a frog deck that spam summoned Lv 8's or a dragon deck with minimal backrow cards.
