Too many classes bad for PVP?

MMORPG Balancing ClassesWhen you think about it, a single class addition to an MMORPG can have a significant impact on all the other classes. The problem is that some MMORPGs tend to keep adding more and more classes on a regular basis (such as League of Legends), which leads to more complicated means to balance out the characters and very careful decision making in order not to make the class under or over powered.

But if you really think about it, this isn't just about classes, PVP is influenced by a lot of things and in fact a new item or a racial trail adjustment can have a significant impact on PVP as well. MMORPGs need to be careful not to give too much of an advantage to a single class, therefore almost everything has to be taken into consideration whether its a piece of equipment, a buff, a skill adjustment, a new race etc... Same applies to prevent any classes from becoming a weak class.
