I enjoyed the game play and I like that DPS performed so well. Rich Shay's points about the meta-game are interesting. I do not whole heartedly agree with them but I understand them.

Watching these games makes me want more combo and play more broken stuff not less. I found the control matches the lest interesting but that's probably just me.
