Re: League of Legends - Your questions answered.
in terms of balancing, Icefrog wins hard
riot's way of balancing: anything strong should be nerfed! nerfed I say! a hero is doing amazing under the hands of a skilled player? NERF! not because the player is skilled, but because the hero is OP! NERF!
Icefrog: a hero is strong, let's see if I can help the community facing the hero by a combination of small nerfs, small buffs to others, introducing more items and heroes so the community would actually have to THINK and L2P instead of crying about how the bloody hero is op.
