The big patch little patch system is supposed to prolong each meta so each player group can get a time in the spotlight. This is not fun though. If each groups gets a long time in the spotlight, that means other groups are getting neglected for longer.
Also, Big patch little patch means problems stay problems longer. I'm a player that desires a perfectly balanced game. I know that actually achieving this is impossible, but if each patch works its hardest to get there, then each patch we should have a BETTER game state. By waiting to patch problems, big or small, you are prolonging imperfection.
