I just feel too many are afraid of change
Balance is the best way for enjoyment in a game. Too hard or too easy and we lose interest. Changing how whites work would be the easier way to accomplish this instead of reworking 50 heroes. Heroes would still need work to be viable again but would maybe stop at reworking 20 and tweaking 20. White skill spamming isn't the only problem, wouldn't help solve the horrid horse, wyvern, archer lines with 400%+ larger shield.
How runes are chosen shouldn't be considered when thinking about the future of the game if they actually do want us to play this for years on end. The system is horribly broken with Hail absolutely useless and Blood not far behind. Also poor servers 7-11 that don't even have a rune system at all.
Everyone wants bad heroes to be better, but better not touch my top 25 heroes I've worked so hard on?Overpowering each and every hero would just create 10 second fights, some need their nerfs.
