A balance update has been announced for Hearthstone and will be released on August 26.
1 / 9
In total, there are five nerfs: Control Warrior, Highlander Mage, and surprisingly, Combo Priest in Standard, and Big Priest in Wild.
2 / 9
These should go live following the Grandmaster second season form Aug 23-25.
3 / 9
These changes are sure to bump down the efficiency of Warrior and Mage in competitive events and give rise to other decks.
4 / 9
Specifically, Hunter and Rogue will not be able to finish off Warrior and Mage before they can stabilize.
5 / 9
Players should keep in mind that all of these changes cost additional mana.
6 / 9
This is in line with Blizzard’s most recent philosophy of attempting to preserve the spirit of each card.
