    How can anyone claim this game is remotely balanced?

    I'm going to name off a list of gods and I challenge any of you to inform me as to how they're balanced when looking at the other ~50 gods in the game.

    Isis
    Bellona
    Serqet
    Xing'Tian
    Sol
    Athena
    Janus
    Khepri
    XBlanc
    Zhong Kui

    I could go on to name more gods... ~20ish in this game that are in every single game (or if its ranked banned every single game) and I doubt I'm the only person who is getting sick of seeing the same 5 gods vs the same 5 gods in just about every single match.

    How is this not obvious? Its almost as if Hirez pays zero attention to the game as Isis has literally been a #1 pick for middle for the past 2 years with only Janus coming in close. How many mages are in the game though? Is hirez ever going to even try to balance this game?

    Zhong Kuis scaling sucks. His stun is shorter than the actual animation for most of the match

    But that doesn't matter due to his durability/sustain. He makes a perfectly safe solo or middle laner and is a monster in team fights (which is why his scaling 'sucks').

    He's more of a defensive Mage. Like a warrior or guardian

    XBaller is on there because of his ultimate. I think there needs to be an item, an active, a GOD, that can counter it. Xblanc's ult is by far the most annoying in the game and can be spammed once every 30 seconds. I know he has good fighting abilities but really its his annoying ultimate that gets him picked... and yes 99% of the time its used on me specifically in matches he's on the enemy team so I have a lot of hate for it.

    He's a defensive mage that goes apeshit damage wise in team fights. Everything he has is aoe which is why people think he scales poorly. He doesn't when put into the context of fighting more than two enemies.

    Just like Ares Kumba Cabrakan Ymir and Athena.

    Athena's shield wall doesn't even do low damage against a single target though. I don't know but I'd put it top 3 among all non ultimate damage abilities.

    You could literally cut shield wall's damage in half and Athena would still be a top pick and still be a top ban because of her total kit. The fact that she can almost one shot you...? Yeah great balance.

    Isis is a horrible boxer

    Xing sucks. His only attribute is that he's tanky.

    Khepri is a walking ult.

    Zhong is a bruiser mage and does that job the way it's supposed to be done.
