blizzard employees are always smug shitty bastards. here's the truth about the butcher:https://www.hotslogs.com/Sitewide/HeroDetails?Hero=The+Butcher
click "All Leagues" and set it to any skill level you want. look at the level 20 skill win rates at the bottom. the top Butcher build has a 62-68% win rate in all skill levels. and it GROWS in higher ranks, rather than shrinks.
hotslogs is an approximation, but there is a lot of data there, and it makes a lot of sense. most other heroes have good win rates when you look at the same stat, so I'm not sure how hotslogs is processing the data or exactly what it means. but it doesn't seem to line up with blizzard to me.
what blizzard employees neglect to mention is that new heroes have a price premium and "accidentally" making them a little too good is good for the bottom line.This comment was edited on Jul 8, 2015, 13:01.
