...at the same time make them all balanced in perspective to all the others?

Start buffing, Riot!

That's the mentality of HoN and DotA. As a reasult those games have almost no balance.

No.

Being overpowered just means you have more power than average, which will always exist when a game has diversity. Increasing power at the same time won't even everything out, and power being close to impossible to measure is the reason most champions and mechanics have varying degrees of power in the first place - so it's not like you can even increase the power of everyone at an equal rate to make whatever discrepancies in power they currently have seem obscure enough to make everyone seem balanced. Doing so would just change who's overpowered.

But then the monsters would be up so we need to buff them.
At best we're back where we started. At worse we just have an unfun game becasue every one do things tpocounter everything and no one can actually DO things or just a game where all the pros take exactly 1 champion.
Or we have an actually balanced game but but different. Just a different league : faster? more mobile? tankier? who knows ^

I prefer Riot's own balance, where champion A is overpowered compared to champion B, but then champion C is stronger than champion A.

If you make EVERYONE OP no one is OP.

Now that is some OP Philosophy.

Well, technically yes. However, Power Creep (what you're asking for) has it's own problems. Also, the game is not just balanced by champion vs. champion, but also champion vs. building and champion vs. minion. So you'd probably need to buff those as well.
