Last week, Iksar mentioned in his AMA that devs are meeting this Tuesday to figure out whether we need balance changes and what those might be. Just an hour ago, Lead Designer Alec Dawson tweeted that there will be no patch this week. Devs are targeting early next week, because the current meta is still evolving rapidly.
And I honestly have to agree – players have thought that Questlines are broken in Standard during the first couple of days, but it turned out that most of them are manageable. In fact, some of the ones that seemed weak (like Shaman’s) are seeing more time in the spotlight right now. The meta is far from stable and making any balance changes would rely too heavily on guessing.
Hopefully we’ll learn what those changes might be in a few days.
No constructed balance changes this week, target is early next week. Meta has been evolving quite rapidly since United in Stormwind launched and we’ll be finalizing decisions in a few days.
