My point exactly.
Also what blizzard does that is completely wrong is, unlike other games, they don't take the tournements/highest rated playerbase to consideration when they try to even fix the pvp.
Dota is a pretty balanced game overall but the devs make tournements and actually watch them and see what is too popular in the scene, which items/heroes are being picked the most and which items/heroes are untouched, and then soon after that they tweak it a little and make changes, not huge ones but small buffs to the underplayed ones and small nerfs to the overplayed ones. They don't listen to the new players whining that a pub stomper hero is too powerful and nerf it.
They do this because how a competative game should be is to see how the best play it, fix the game according to their games and those who are lower should watch those people and try to play like they do and get at their level, fixing the game to please the casual players just because they are whining is counter productive, then you get those 1500 rated people whining about the complete wrong thing and blizzard giving it to them making them more spoiled and less likely to follow the higher rated players and try to be like them. But even the lower rated people wont be happy because of these changes, its so counter productive.
This is probably very obvious to you guys but I don't see how blizzard, who made most likely the best esport our there, sc2, can be so stupid. For example now they are nerfing chaos bolt to do %25 less damage and be a dot that ticks for 3 seconds, you look at these stats here and see that warlocks are low tier among with rogues and monks, yet they don't check aj they don't even check ladders they just go to the pvp forums and listen to thousands of morons who have no idea to play and whine that chaos bolt hit them too much.
