We're discussing subjective crap like "enjoyable" or "balanced".
The very notion that, short of EUG giving public access to all game statistics, there's any argument which can determine if it's "better" or "worse" is laughable since nobody can even agree on any definition of what is "balanced" or "enjoyable".
I'd wish to make a thread petitioning eugen to just keep the show stats button disabled forever, but there's absolutely no point.
Normally I should have 5-7 games which end in a one sided rape within 10 minutes for every 2-3 games which last a while and are somewhat decent and 1 game which is remotely interesting.
After ~8 games since the game came back up and not a single instant-end game yet, I'm declaring that the games are a hell of a lot more balanced than they were before.
