Ultimately it's about making a good game and whether or not things are fun and balanced and makes sense. Sadly, a lot of the homebrewing screws stuff up and makes things repetitive and un-fun. Some of the homebrewing is pretty good, though. The "special attacks" with various weapons adds a fun new dimension in combat. The race to the top is just tedious when every battle seems to have a million vertical places, and with this comes the adv/disadv obviously, and the trolly jumping over enemies, stepping behind them and getting advantage attacking their flank if they have no other enemy in close proximity is just ridiculous.
