Gallon, Hearthstone Game Designer, just announced that the dev team is planning a quick hotfix balance update. They’re currently looking at The Azerite Snake (Legendary Excavate Treasure) as it’s a clear sentiment outlier. It’s a very popular deck and players don’t really enjoy facing it.
The main problem is that the combo pieces are easy to assemble and the combo is pretty much unstoppable (outside of a lucky Dirty Rat or something). The problem is that the card steals max health, so no amount of Taunts, Armor or healing can save you. I would expect the reward to get nerfed to just deal 10 damage and heal for 10 instead of stealing max health.
More details will come on Friday. I assume that the patch itself will drop early next week, probably on Tuesday (definitely before Thanksgiving).
Howdy partners, hope y’all are enjoying the first few days of Showdown in the Badlands! We’re planning on a hotfix nerf for The Azerite Snake, as it’s a clear sentiment outlier. More details to come Friday ???? pic.twitter.com/tRgaoqqf3T
