    What do you guys think? Or do advisors have no role in Champion Mode PvP?

    To be honest I don't think this should happen for champion mode, but maybe this could be a way to balance non-champion pvp or could be a new 3rd mode altogether? As is it doesnt get played often partly because of how wild it'd be with all the different "meta" advisor builds out there and this seems to sensibly scale back most of the early ones.

    I do wonder if bringing back "unranked" non-champion mode pvp queue or even a ranked mode of it could help for pvp activity.

    Most of these proposed changes to these advisors would make for a really cool, somewhat balanced/able format though. Really like the idea.
