To preface; I’ve been seeing a lot of confusion, anger, and general questions regarding the balances teams decision to ban two supports out of seven, when it had seemingly been stated beforehand that they intended to make it one tank, two dps, and one support.
I will link these, to start with.
Now, i understand what might come up.
“Those were random posts made in reply to a thread on the forums, weeks ago! They should have included this in an official blogpost or something!”
While yes, i agree.
They should have been more transparent with their intentions behind the first 5 weeks of Hero Pools.
What stands presently, is their intention.
Their intention was and is, to test out banning more heros, less heros, change things up, etc.
And, I’m not making this thread to poo-poo anyone making outrage threads, condoning the banning of two main healers.
In fact, those threads made as feedback to this weeks round of hero pools are very much needed! We need to voice what we like and don’t like about hero pools.
I wanted to make it more clear to those who might not have known.
And also to bring more awareness for the coming weeks!
We might see something else a little more wild, like banning 5 damage and 2 tanks.
TL;DR Jeff Kaplan stated in a thread on Jan 30th that for the first 5 weeks of hero pools, they would be “testing out” a variety of combinations, which wold include banning two supports.
