Thank you… This guy gets it, we’re friends now… You’re invited to my birthday party. lol.
The problem is that Blizzard needs to learn they can’t cater to the top 1% of the community and expect things to go over well with everyone else.
What they need to do is have different builds for different levels of play, because nothing can be universally balanced. Even other sports tune the rules and field to better match it’s level of players.
Kind of like how Basketball played at the high school, college, and professional levels all have different sized courts, different heights to the rims, differently placed 3-point lines.
Or how baseball lets lower level (college/high school/some foreign leagues) players use metal bats, on a smaller field, while MLB players can only use Wooden bats on a much larger field.
The game will never feel fair, balanced, or (as) fun, when the game is fundamentally flawed and imbalanced from the foundation, but it’s tuned from the TIPPY TOP. One that doesn’t make sense. If the foundation of your house was unstable, would you climb on the roof to try to balance it?
Blizzard needs to address the issues WHERE THEY EXIST. But that’s impossible when everyone at every level is playing on the same patch/build.
If something is EXTREMELY problematic at Bronze-Plat, changing it will only serve to hurt the balance of the game for those people at the top. And if you change stuff at the top, you’re just crapping on the lower end of the elo-spectrum.
And that’s what we’ve seen. That’s why I think there needs to be AT LEAST 2 balance builds.
But yeah, there are FAR GREATER examples of Blizzard “not listening” than not making shadow step the greatest move ever.
