Blizzard has deployed a small Arena Balance Hotfix yesterday. Appearance of unspecified cards for best performing classes were tweaked to appear less to tone down their win-rate and the opposite done for worse performing classes.

Classes being toned down:

  • Demon Hunter
  • Paladin
  • Shaman
  • Warlock

Classes being buffed up:

  • Druid
  • Hunter
  • Mage
  • Priest
  • Rogue

If we look at a snapshot of today's stats from HSreplay, it does correlate with Blizzard's decision making process based on their overall win-rate.

Hey everyone,

We’re in the process of deploying a small server-side hotfix that will update the appearance rate of cards in Arena to ensure class balance remains close to the ideal 50% win-rate. Specifically, the win-rate of Demon Hunter, Paladin, Shaman, and Warlock should now be decreased. The win-rate of Druid, Hunter, Mage, Priest, and Rogue should now be increased. The win-rate of Warrior should be roughly the same as before.

Which cards do you think were the biggest offenders in your opinion? Tell us in the comments!
