hero pools won’t change the meta, but it will sure make it more flexible.
- let’s say meta is : Reinheart - Dva // Mei - Hanzo // Briggita - Moira
Bans will only be 1 tank- 2 dps- 1 healer
That means We have SUB Metas :
META B : If Reinheart Is banned this week, we will have Dva + Sigma (what is best with them)
META C : If Dva is banned Reinheart + zarya (what is best with them)
Same applies to dps, but in a lesser extent , since dps (my opinion) don’t define meta like tanks and suppots do.
If Hanzo/Mei get banned in the same week , There will already be The 2 second best ones for either Dva + Sigma or Reinheart + zarya (granted there are a lot of strong dps, for there to be only 2 “strongest” ones)
Same applies to supports.
So in a way, it’s possible that there will be around 4 diffrent metas,
A meta STRONGEST / B meta if tank is banned / C meta if tank is banned / D Meta if both dps is banned.
However what are the chances for the 2 meta tanks being banned in the same week?
Meta A will always be the strongest meta, but with flexing Isn’t that awesome?
