There are some very good points being brought up in here, particularly the dispute between the “frequency in which each team gets someone from the other team close to death during the course of one game” Vs “how close to death the enemy was”.
Some solutions could encourage turtling and we have to pay attention to that.
On the other hand, we also don’t want to change players’ behaviour too much because of this, for example, some healers might stop feeling comfortable playing at low health in order to keep the pressure on the other team during certain moments, and paladins/spriests/mages/hunters/rogues won’t wait so long before they bubble/block/deterrence/vanish, etc…
Who should win between a team that nearly kills their opponent 20 times during one single match and a team that leaves their opponent at 1 HP and plays defensively during the rest of the game?
Maybe there could be a mix between both variables with some weight applied to each of them.
We’ll make sure to share the potential issues you brought up with the devs, there are many solutions available to break ties and it’s possible that we end up seeing some iteration on this.
