We have all seen the posts where people are getting reported just for picking techies. From personal experience I can say that most techies games wind us with a lose, as the techies player tends to just afk mine and contribute minimally to the game. With that being said, there are a few skilled techies players, however the numbers are very minimal.

HoN had the same problem with their version of techies, the hero was simply abused and useless, which eventually resulted in the ranked removal of the hero. Let's keep the casual heroes out of ranked, and let the serious players not have to deal with this stress.
