Hearthstone: Xixo's Thoughts on Card Balance

Recommended Posts

15707-hearthstone-xixos-thoughts-on-card

Na`Vi Xixo has written an interesting arcticle on his team's site. The article presents several cards that Xixo would change because he thinks they frustrate players. He then gives his proposals to balance those cards.


While there are no major surprises on his list of cards, he has some good ideas to keep them playable while making them more reasonable. His explanations make sense and it is always fascinating to see how top players would balance things.

The cards on his list are: Imp-losion, Dr. Boom, Innervate, Mad Scientist, Piloted Shredder, Loatheb, Mysterious Challenger, and Emperor Thaurissan.

He also had some fun on Twitter. Taking time to have a joke with Ben Brode, who tweeted that losing to Freeze Mage is less fun than losing to some other decks, because the win comes from nowhere. He mentions that Warsong Commander was also in this category. (source) Xixo replied to this with:



The text is a reference to the Warsong Commander nerf. Ben Brode took it in good spirits:



This is a reference to a comment he gave about keeping the soul of Warsong Commander when it was nerfed. A comment that many players disagreed with as they felt the card was completely ruined. It is good to know that the design team understand criticisms levelled at them, and are able to interact with the players in a fun way.
