More than 90% of games are pubs, and now that they will be generating revenue we WILL be more important.
I hope Icefrog keeps his balancing as is, lest DotA turns into League of Legends. Lycan is as 'imba' as he was in DotA 1, but you do not see people complain about him until he came out on DOTA 2. I do not understand why this is, if he was so imbalanced.
Lycan is also as 'imba' as Anti-Mage was, and now look at Anti-Mage in DOTA 2. A situational pick and no longer 'automatic win'. He'll get even worse as more heroes come out.
Game 2 between aL and Zenith (MYM) yesterday had Lycan pretty much shut down all game by Slardar and Furion. They came back to win only due to the efforts of Leshrac. Of course, would you be advocating imba Leshrac now?
