Hearthstone News: Warsong Commander Nerfed Too Much? Blizzard Explains Reason Behind Update
Hearthstone has recently been tracked closely due to a certain change in one of the game's most recognized characters. Blizzard gives their end of the angle, and with it, fans have expressed theirs without hesitation.
According to Touch Arcade, fans have already went on and given their appeal to the rather intriguing update that Blizzard has given to the Warsong Commander-being nerfed at a massive scale. With it, the people from Blizzard have said as well that the intention of the nerf is to add balance to the system, given that the Warsong Commander has an insane amount of strength to deal against its opponents.
Delivered by Game Spot, a Blizzard community manager aliased as 'Zeriyah' iterated that the development team only opts to nerf cards only under the conditions that they are immensely necessary. She said that the meta itself evolves, and with it, distinction in the decks will surely happen. The path that the gameplay should go should be determined by the players through this evolution.
Zeriyah was quoted, "Going forward, we will continue to stand by our stance that we will only make adjustments to cards when we feel it is completely necessary and allow the injection of new cards into the game help our players define what the meta evolves into. In the case of Warsong Commander, we felt this change was necessary to help expand both future design space and to stand by our overarching game philosophy that battles between minions and fighting for board control is what makes Hearthstone fun and compelling."
PC Gamer noted that Blizzard themselves believe that the nerf is of utmost importance. Given that Warsong Commander has the privilege of charging a minion 2ith 3 or less attack, the nerf was reported on before by numerous players, and presumably, Blizzard saw that it could be a reasonable feat to weaken. This is also a sign that the Warsong Commander may not be the only one to experience the nerf, and if other characters will be a little overpowered, they, as well, will get a sense of balance.
