For me I just dont see every theme requiring a hero. I think it would also be nice for new players to not have to rely on a hero for every theme. I do agree that for the themes the heroes do have they could do with more synergy in their upgrades though. I think Moragen was always a zombie, but until they got apocalypse the race didn't matter. Hope you consider the coven change suggested above. @BansheeX Crossbone has had Precision on base since the revamp was first done, so I am not overly certain where you keep getting the idea he doesn't have it. Also, Domain: DMZ seems to just be a neutral upgrade that might allow him additional use outside of skeletons. I think one thing DOG are trying to do is make it so champions can be used out of theme. This is because they want to encourage players to think of the synergy rather than themes having it baked in for them. The problem is people are so used to themes (which they are also trying to keep viable) that any attempt to remove a champion from being stuck in a theme seems to get hit back at with hostility.
