The latest State of the Game article is posted and is entitled "Balanced Builds in Heroes' Ascent. As always, the article was written by a community member and focuses on PvP gameplay:
One way to determine if a build is balanced or gimmicky is to examine how well it can adapt tactics to achieve the objectives and challenges on each map. Can the build split well and be mobile enough for the Antechamber's control points? Does it provide options for relic runners when playing in Unholy Temples? Is there enough offensive power to win in Annihilation maps like the Underworld? Questions like these are an effective way to determine the balance of a build.
If PvP is your thing, this is a must-read article.
