I'm not trying to anger anyone or start and argument here, but why is "Current Stars vs Legends" arguments still a thing? 2K16 had everyone on the main roster from Mania time, the most important guys in NXT, and the most important legends/people for Showcase. I think they honestly found the best way to please everyone.
Same reason the roster slot myth is still a thing? Same reason people still think X from the current roster gets bumped off the list for X from the legends roster? Any number of bizarre reasons. I agree with you, I was happy with 2K16's ratio.
