A balance update has been deployed dealing with Samuro and various hotfixes.

Samuro nerfs are finally here and some changes have been made to bring down his obnoxious win rate. Aside from that, today's balance update fixes some gameplay bugs, but there are no changes for other Heroes.

Heroes, Abilities, and Talents

This nerf is so impactful that from 67% winrate he will reach 70%...

even calling this a nerf is questionable

I dunno, that's a pretty big impact. Maybe it will only hit 68%?

      Deathwing will be nerfed in a future balance patch. We're looking at more general nerfs across the board, mainly to Destroyer form, overall talent tuning, and some World Breaker buffs.

      Hey Calcaz!
      We get enough data, even with a massive ban rate. Of course, as more data comes in we’re more confident with where things sit, but we have always had enough data to make educated changes before the first balance patch after a new hero release. After the first balance patch, we always have an even more clear picture of where things stand since we have that much more time for data to come in.
      Balance patch is looking good!
      For Deathwing, more general nerfs across the board, particularly to Destroyer form. Also some World Breaker buffs and talent tuning.
      Can’t confirm dates. Confirming dates is the path to the dark side.

      It's been a while since we last heard of Kevin Johnson aka Cloaken. After leaving Blizzard, he briefly returned to narrate the Deathwing Spotlight, and recently, launched his own company called Harken Interactive. On YouTube, Kevin recently started The Listening Game Podcast, and in the first episode, he interviewed Lana Bachynski, a former Heroes Animator who now works on League of Legends at Riot Games.
      Lana Bachynski is responsible for bringing characters to life through movement. Her most notable work includes animation on Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm and StarCraft II. 
      Kevin and Lana talk about what made the Heroes team so special and why it was so difficult to leave.
