iirc, yeah, the heroes thing wasn't because it was random, but rather that it was maxable in every level and the control of it was random, so there was no "just don't do it", because it wasn't intentional in the first place, it just sort of happened. So the reason was that it wasn't feasible to "just not do it", as opposed to most infinite-tricks (like birds in S3&K before they were un-banned). That they were random is the reason that *that* was scrapped instead of being amended, and that's fine, but it's unrelated to this.
This requires luck to get a good stat, and if you wanted to ban something for that, I have a list of luck-based-bullshit (or mostly-luck-based-bullshit, for a second list, like the single-frame-botnik'-dash in AR2) I can post and we can start banning arbitrary things all day long.
Also, if "because people don't like it" ever becomes a reason to ban anything, I'd like to ban S06 twice, for good measure.
