Patch Notes & Balance Update Coming Out Tomorrow (May 12), Will Contain Quilboar Nerfs in Battlegrounds

A big balance update, with 5 card nerfs and 10 card buffs, has been announced a while ago. Players have hoped that it will release early this week – patch notes on Monday and release on Tuesday was the most common prediction (since that’s how Blizzard is usually releasing those). However, it’s Tuesday and we haven’t even seen any patch notes.

Lead Designer Alec Dawson just shared the news that both patch notes and the patch itself will drop tomorrow – on Wednesday (May 12). That’s because it will also include a number of adjustments (read nerfs) to Quilboars in Battlegrounds, and they wanted to give the BG meta some more time to settle after last week’s big update. Which makes it a major patch for both Constructed and Battlegrounds players. Can’t wait to hear more about it!

    The new Paladin cards are well balanced.

    Will the patch/patch notes be out after the battleground event?
