well thats the entire problem with ep to begin with, and it's why I was against it from the start. but implementing the changes and seeing how it works is the only way to test them. most ppl simply wont play on a beta. they just want to play.
So you're arguing that we should implement your suggestion without any testing?
That doesn't make a lot of sense considering how you're criticizing the lack of testing.
In addition, you can't really blame the EP team for the lack of testing while, as far as I know, you haven't tested anything.
If you're motivated enough to test and provide recs showing that Iro won't be broken on TP maps with such a change, I'm sure the dev team can create a beta for you.
The lack of testing is the reason why we can't consider risky changes anymore, like the one you're suggesting honestly, it's not because we don't want to.
Until last year, I had enough time to play about 50 games on every beta (I still have the recs), but today there's literally 0 testing, so if something is op, it won't be figured out before the next tourney.
