In the newest balancing update, we focused on some Heroes that were in need of adjustment, curtailing the spawner meta, and improving a Legendary card. Read all the changes below:
Based on internal analysis and player feedback, Volt was a bit too powerful and in need of some balancing changes. In the end, he'll still be effective but more on par with other Heroes.
Volt wasn't the only Hero in need of a bit of a nerf. Ghost's core stats will remain unchanged, only getting a change to her Slow effect and range buff.
On the other side of the Hero spectrum, Scarab was in need of a buff to increase its viability. We believe an increase in Speed, for both Scarab and its Zaplings, will provide that.
To help mitigate the spawner meta, we've increased the viability of two Support cards. The first is the Bomber, which gets an increase in Damage.
The other Support card to get a buff is Airstrike and like the Bomber it will get an increase in its Damage. We're hoping these changes will help get both of these cards into more decks over the more popular Toxic Bomb.
The Mortar was meant to be a strong defensive Structure, but not this strong. With a change to its Hit Points and Range, we feel it will be a bit easier to counter.
The recently-released Legendary card, Snipers, just didn't feel legendary enough. To help rectify that, we've made their attack more potent, but kept it balanced with a slight Damage reduction.
