Maybe the improvement required to the Meta game is creating more Meta games. Only having one type of Meta game means there is only one incentive, no matter which way you slice and dice it. A lot of players pride themselves on using unique builds. Why not track the usage of unique items and reward one player each month for it. The Unique Snowflake Meta game. Another thought for a Meta game... Lots of players groan at the thought of playing against high Elo players. Why not give them an incentive. Track who wins these matches. More points awarded for each 100 points difference in rank. The David vs Goliath Meta game.
