These are the changes that should be prioritized:
Blaze’s kit should be reworked so that it’s no longer counter-synergistic. This hero has been a mess since day one.
Medivh should be reworked because his talents are the most boring ever conceived and his kit/playstyle doesnt match his character in crucial points.
Moving misha as Rexxar should not have a global cooldown to allow for bodyblocking and rise skill ceiling.
The grid used to position Hogger’s D should be at least 5 times more dense so that it can land where you want without having to memorize the entire map for every map.
Maiev feels terrible to play without a healer, like it often happens in quick match, so this should be solved somehow.
Most importantly of all:
The mentality of the developers has to be made right again. There are 3 kinds of problems with them as they are today in my view:
The first one is lack of understanding of the character the developer is working on, better exemplified by what happened with Whitemane’s failed rework: only one of her reworked builds agreed with her previous (and original) identity, all the others were either ignorantly nerfed to the ground (despite having 30% winrate) or deleted from the game, this is a massive loss of gameplay experiences which were burnt like the library of Alexandria by what i consider a barbarian. When the countless complains about how Whitemane’s rework was a step back gained weight in the community, they threw a bone at us by pretending to give us back the mage build by giving us a wallmart version of fanatical power baseline, which is actually a sum 0 spell which should only be used in the backline, wherein the original was used aggresively.
The second one is laziness and lack of willingness to solve obvious problems. Hoggers grid, Rexxar’s gcd on moving misha, the m1 bug which has been on for a year or more, items randomly disappearing from your collection and not getting a refund even though you have proof, the balance team being so out of touch that the philosophy of “hero/rework reveals should be strong to catch attention and create a playerbase” actually means that rehgar has had no less than 65% winrate since he was reworked and Zagara was a merciless monster who had to be disabled due to incompetence of the balance team.
The third is: please dont buy the cheap solution to a problem like the guy who is being paid for “making the ai better.” That poor guy is Sisyphus. He can never reach his goal because every update makes him lose progress. Just buy the real solution which is machine learning, should be much cheaper now with Microsoft being the owner.
