    Would there be any way to balance the game? It seems that deafening would probably be the most OP spell.

    But then again bkb itself is quite OP. if it was for me I would actually prefer that bob didnt exist to begin with.

    What changes do you think would be necessary when bkb is removed? Could the game possibly be better than current state (i.e. better than both pre-7.00 and post 7.00 era)?

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    i stop playing the game.


    Honestly, having no counters to spells are retarded. No character should have an ability that you cannot stop.

    This game would become literally garbage. Whoever has the most stuns wins.

    balance will go apeshit.

    as a caster/support osfrog already buffed them already with the removal of purge from diffusal blade. so we still have ghost scepter as a countermeasure. and the way of enemy to deal with it via item is by using necro summons(which most BKB using hero wont buy), or dominator satyr purge, and nullifier (currently best options) but it had bad buildup and would be less desirable compared to old diffusal as a mean of dispelling ghost scepter..

    BKB is fine as a strong item and its never be an actual 1st item on most carries, so there's there..

    bkb is only op, cause spells are even more op in first place.

    The only wrong part is bkb is way weaker against sup than ghost is against carry (even without accounting for the gold cost)

    Also the stats provided by a BKB are beyond terrible, so the item has no offensive or defensive value outside of it's active ability, which in fact is the only ability getting worst as the game progresses.

    Most physical damage carries are still dead, because no matter what your networth is, without a BKB you can get chainstunned and it will be worthless. Cool, you're a super fed Sven, but the brown boots Lion just presses 2 buttons and you can't do anything for 6.6 seconds, and your team is just going to be dead at that point. Just get tons of AOE stuns and wreck everybody, because no one can counter you- the instant you go ahead you stay ahead.

    I'm most definitely going to stop supporting my cores if BKB gets removed, because said cores have no way of insuring they will be actually be able of doing shit.

    This, really. I found BKB to be one of the most overrated items in the game.

    Of course it has it's place, but I'm referring to the blind 'build BKB every single time on every carry' mentality.

    Implying a brown boots Lion can get into range in the first place lol, as if the Sven doesn't have a team.
