I'll be honest, I do like Riot's balancing team, but I didn't know you had such a good sense of "why" you're doing things. My respect for you guys has only gone up. I've begun to believe that a lot of developers didn't know why they did things anymore; they just do things for money/appease their fanbase.
I lost faith when Diablo 3 happened. I beat it in hardcore and softcore and still felt like it was lacking in depth and design direction, especially since all they do is nerf, nerf, and nerf, when their beta videos had so much intuition and had an interesting thought process.
