Nearly two weeks ago, Blizzard announced that a selection of popular Hearthstone cards would soon be nerfed. That definition of soon turned out to be two weeks.
Today, that nerf went live, bringing with it changes to Innervate, Fiery War Axe, Hex, Murloc Warleader, and Spreading Plague. Those cards have all seen nerfs to various degrees.
On top of this, the Hearthstone community isn’t quite loving the nerfs, either. Last month, Blizzard said that it would soon announce some balance changes directed at Druid, the class that most dominates the ladder. The nerf to Innervate and Spreading Plague will sure help, but we’ll have to see how dominating Jade Druid still is, since none of these nerfs directly affect the core of that deck.
And while we wait to see how these nerfs cause the meta to shift, check out the first announcement from earlier this month about the philosophy behind these nerfs.
