I don't like the direction battelgrounds is going.
The buffs to heroes in the new balance patch shows they want to put more focus on your hero selection and it sucks. I enjoyed battlegrounds because everyone was on an equal footing to begin with - but early game powerhouses like millhouse suck a lot early game fun away when you have guaranteed losses.
The large variance in damage taken from a loss is anti-fun, they need to raise the health pool drastically or change how damage is calculated.
Once you're below 15 hp you are unable to take the risks to get first place, as you have no resource to gamble with.
The fact they have returned lightfang to it's original form is really worrying - the game mode is moving in the same power-creep direction :/
Live games were a mistake lol
