4/20 Balance Update[edit | edit source]
We have a special mid-month balance update tomorrow with an eye towards draft. With tomorrow’s update we’re looking to bring more depth to Empire of Glass Draft and raise the power of what’s possible.
To accomplish this, we have a slightly larger than average number of changes, all to Empire of Glass commons and uncommons. These are mostly buffs targeted at bolstering some additional paths in draft, along with a nerf to help these new synergies flourish. We’re also going to be changing the draft order to be Empire of Glass, Eternal Draft Pack, Eternal Draft Pack, Empire of Glass so you can get a crack at some of these upgraded cards to build around right off the bat.
These changes will go live tomorrow, April 20th. Our next check-in will be our usual beginning of the month balance update as we continue to monitor the latest metagame developments.
