Now this is a stupid argument. You know why? Saying that "nuclear wepons are not op because we have missle defense systems no need for nuclear disarment" would actually be true, if and only if every country in the world had missle defense systems (anti-nuclear ones). But they do not. So this is a perfect example of something actually being OP - as there is no counter. Very few countries actually have proper and capable anti-nuclear defense systems. And that is the core of the problem.
cultist robe has inherent power that forces players , especially melee to build sub -optimally just to engage that robe, because if you don't it just wins. Why does it win , because it just wins. That's not what we call balanced on any scale.
Uuuugh... no. Items are balanced exactly BECAUSE there is a counter. It would be IMBALANCED if there was no counter. Now - you refusing to use the counter, or refusing to figure out a way to find multiple counters - is your own (stubborn?) issue.
Oh and please tell me where I can find an entire group wearing these! I need to renew my Premium soon
