Hello everyone,

We're planning to release a new Balance Update on Wednesday, March 9 in order to fix a few bugs, and make adjustments to number of heroes, abilities, and talents. This week’s update will be released in the Americas login region first, and will roll out to all other regions around the world throughout the rest of the day. The following heroes will receive balance changes with Wednesday’s update:

  • Falstad
  • Greymane
  • Li-Ming
  • Valla
  • Abathur
  • Zagara
  • Kharazim
  • Artanis
  • Sonya

Of those listed, Artanis, Falstad, and Valla will receive the largest number of changes. Head over to the official Heroes site on Wednesday to catch the patch notes. Until then, we’ll see you in the Nexus!

such a tease.......
So small Xul changes next week then?
52% winrate li ming, better nerf her some more!
Tbh I think the only thing Valla needs is for the mana on hungering arrow to be reduced to 40, and have cost-effective materials removed. It would put her mana in a more similar place as other heroes. Like Zeratul.
The tease is real.
I hope Zagara gets a lot of work. Not so much to reduce her winrate, but because her kit is ancient. Cluttered talent tiers including Envenom which looks so obsolete on her with Envenomed Spines in mind.

Like Kael'Thas, she needs a rework to promote talent diversity. Perhaps they'll nerf her a tad before an actual rework, like with KT, to have a better idea on how to balance her.

Also hoping they'll do Nydus Network justice. It is an absolutely brilliant concept for Zagara that just needs some PvP use to shine.
En taro Artanis!
For the Daelaam!

Well falstad seem already balanced , but the hero who needs love is arthas please rework him, I mean this is the lich king please.
Li ming is perfect now... 52% winrate... pls dont make her useless. x.x
Li Ming is already balanced, please don't make the same mistake you did with Kael'thas and over nerf her just because of whiny people.

Abathur unit disgusted. Changes insufficent. Nerfs unacceptable.
So will Sonya ever become a viable Warrior or are you planning to change her to Assassin soon since she does a better job of killing heroes than staying alive?
Xul 60% win rate, better nerf li-ming
I hope they dont nerf Greymane, I think he has a good balance and more important, he's FUN to play. Using too much the nerf hammer with all the players who are dropping the game, will make the ones who had not done yet easier for uninstall.
