    From 1 to 10, how balanced is DotA overall?

    1 being complete utter garbage, and 10 being perfectly balanced, no flaws, no overpowered heroes in any way.

    Haven't played DotA in a long time...

    ...though I'd give Dota 2's balance a 7 or 8, but that probably change when all the heroes are ported over.

    Eh, I'm not entirely sure how it would change.

    We'll just have to wait and see.

    for CM it's probably close to being 10/10 for balance.

    for each hero having the same relative power as every other hero? probably 4/10 or 5/10.

    From memory:

    2010 10/10
    2011 8.5/10
    2012 7.5/10
    2013 7.5/10

    Jaded bittervets these days... ;)

    Seriously though, such rankings don't make much sense. What's the difference between 6 and 7? Is the scale linear, exponential or something else (and while we're at it, do those terms even make sense in the context)? Most importantly, what issues do we address with this "quiz"?

    Ah well, disregard this :p:

    When a new patch is released: 10.

    After every subsequent month, the score drops by 1. (So after 10 months the score drops to 0).

    I think 8. Not that we want perfect balance anyways.

    It is about an 8.5

    It can't be 10 because nothing is perfect, right? ^^ :heart:
