Every Hero Has A Counter Vs Every Hero Is Viable

Starting to think Dota had it far better with their philosophy. In Dota, every hero was generally created with at least one other hero that could easily counter them. This meant that even heroes that seemed OP could be handled through careful selection.

LoL chooses a different approach. They generally try to follow the philosophy that all heroes should be viable without being OP. Obviously this is causing some major issues. We are creating to many heroes that are too good at everything (Irelia, Xin, etc). We also have heroes that are great with certain allies, but are completely lacking in a standard solo match (TF, Heimer, and Ezreal come to mind).

It seems like all it does is cause a FOTM band wagon where everyone hops on the best champion at the time until that champion is nerfed. Heroes that need specific teams or allies in order to be effective remain weak and underplayed because of the rarity of their situations.

Anyway, just a thought.
