everyone knows that the real issue is that blizz devs are sitting around playing ipad cardstone while f5ing aj and pvp forums waiting for THE best forum essay on how to save this game so they can act
a lot of men have tried and failed but i firmly believe that my upcoming forum novella "how to save wow arena: what needs to be done and why (and how) to save it" will finally save this game. i have a feeling there will be a lot of arguments in the comments so i intend to hire lolflay as an underwriter so i can win all of them or get ct trying
for me a "balanced" state in a game is that there is a reasonable way for me/my team to win every game if we play well
i think the more the stars have to align in order for you to beat a team, the less balanced the game is... especially once you start just surviving and praying for them to make mistakes.
so i guess s7/s8 i felt more than any other season there was a reasonable way to win almost every matchup as most comps, especially because the skill ceiling was higher and there was more you could do.
Starcraft 2? Balanced based on casual play.
WOTLK? Balanced based on casual play. Hard to tell the difference between hardcore and casuals.
Vanilla and BC? Difficultly level was still there and the most hardcore players benefited the most. If you were a casual player it showed.
