I wonder how can you take advantage of these polls when they are just a popularity contest....

They're an indication.
Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

I don't, because they're only a popularity contest to an extent. I actually think them helpful indicators.

Well the results are clearly a bit wrong for some civs, but it gives an overall trend I guess. I'm mostly shocked about how low people still rate iro

The "difference from previous poll" trend is a good indicator as well. It's very likely that if there is a significant trend there, it would continue in the next poll. From that you can somewhat reliably conclude which civs are under- or overrated.

Opinions on balance right now are based on feelings. The balance is pretty good to the point where I dont think there are many (if any) people that can give a somewhat objective opinion.

The way people judge these civs is too flawed anyways. They dont objectively consider overall winrate but rather judge civs based on their performance in the tournament meta. Which means that a civ with little hard counters (= good first pick) will be overrated, aswell as civs that counter popular civs. Also, civs that perform well on non meta tournament maps, like india on low res/livestock/water maps or ports on water maps will be overrated.

We don't want a civ to be imba on a kind of map, even though it's balanced on another kind of map.

Theres no way to balance for all sorts of maps anyways. Its still disrupting the results either way.

Ye, such as voting India higher now with 80w houses than with 60w.
It's largely based on perception and perception is affected by popularity. Popularity isn't a good criteria to base balance on.

In accordance with my previous reply, I absolutely agree. It's a matter of avoiding bias and applying judgement.
