If you read my recent deck roundups, you’d know that I fully expected some balance changes. The meta is much better than before the first round of nerfs, but it’s still far from balanced (Paladin in particular is way too powerful). I hoped that we’ll see them next week, after Masters Tour, but I wasn’t that far off. Game Designer Alec Dawson just announced that they will decide on the balance changes next week and release them the week after (~2 weeks from now).
He made it very clear that the balance changes CAN include cards in Battle-Ready decks despite the note in the announcement that cards in those decks aren’t likely to be nerfed. Honestly, it was to be expected, and the note was really weird – those decks included some of the strongest cards in the game, of course they COULD get nerfed if the meta required those changes.
Anyway, we don’t have any details yet, not even devs have made any final decisions, but hopefully we’ll learn about them soon. I have a few potential candidates and we might cover them in a separate article – we’ll see!
Also so that there’s transparency, still planning to do balance changes post MT. We’ll be deciding those sometime next week and they’ll be in game the week after. Those could certainly include cards in the battle-ready decks but as of right now we have not made final decisions.
