View Full Version : What will this game be balanced around?

Like any other game there are a lot of concerns when it comes to balancing when there are multiple modes of play. Have the devs said anything pertaining to what is the competitive game mode? 1v1/4v4 dominion etc...

Will this be a game balanced around tournament play, or around pugs/majority play? The metagame for low mmr in a game like this is totally different then what you are gonna see at tournament level play.

And finally, what standard is class balance going to revolve around? We see a lot of "tier lists" out, and while you have to take a bunch of them with a huge grain of salt... there are a lot of patterns that reoccur that shouldn't be ignored. I think the most reoccurring theme is warden being either best or 2nd best, and kensei being middle of the road/OK. So with that in mind, will balancing efforts focus on bringing other characters up to what warden is or what he represents? Or will we be trying to get everything to the level kensei is?
