00:00 - 00:05So I told the rest of the dev team, bring the patch notes here
00:05 - 00:07Hurry up, the community wants balance changes.
00:07 - 00:10This weeks patch notes are balance adjustments
00:10 - 00:16Good changes to underused heroes. Melissa, Cecilia, and of course our tenth buff to Tenebria.
00:17 - 00:21Then I read the changes to Khawazu.
00:21 - 00:24Khawazu.
00:29 - 00:31Khawazu.
00:31 - 00:34One turn defense break on a 100 speed hero.
00:38 - 00:40Khawazu
00:41 - 00:47I was trying to ignore that hero, so we could remove him when people forgot about him.
00:47 - 00:50So when I picked up the patch notes and read he was on there
00:50 - 00:56I was suprised he was still in the game.
00:58 - 00:59The epic pass
00:59 - 01:01The community complained, but the rewards are still shit
01:04 - 01:06Our game was almost sub 3.0
01:06 - 01:08Google doesnt even promote it anymore
01:13 - 01:14Khawazu.
01:14 - 01:16Just take a look at Tenha's list of problems.
01:16 - 01:20Its reaching almost 100 community complaints.
01:21 - 01:27I put it up on my wall, and it touches the floor.
01:34 - 01:37I pretend to write down notes on issues when we do community streams.
01:37 - 01:39Like we dont already know.
01:41 - 01:44But really, we're trying to make good changes.
01:44 - 01:49We're removing pet snacks.
01:47 - 01:49If you have any leftovers, well
01:49 - 01:53Trade them in for friendship points.
01:54 - 01:56Get more fodder.
01:56 - 01:58That you didn't need.
01:58 - 02:02Sometimes ill browse reddit to see what the community thinks.
02:05 - 02:07Khawazu.
02:09 - 02:10Pavel-
02:10 - 02:13Pavel, our newest hero-
02:14 - 02:15When I first saw his kit
02:15 - 02:20I thought he was a four star.
02:21 - 02:28Sure, lets release an aoe hero in this Elbris Meta, Charles is waiting
02:29 - 02:30Charles didnt get changes?
02:30 - 02:32Charles is still the same.
02:36 - 02:39These posts saying Pavel is good are great
02:40 - 02:43thier Pavel with 4k attack and 275% crit damage.
02:50 - 02:55A pure DPS unit with multipliers like that.
02:56 - 02:58What if you +15 him?
02:58 - 03:04Of course, any unit with whale gear and +15 will do good.
03:04 - 03:09Might as well use an actual good unit at that point, like Yufine.
03:09 - 03:11Bless these players defending every unit with whale gear.
03:16 - 03:20You're thinking about ML Twyin, aren't you?
03:23 - 03:26Now theres a unit I want to see them defend.
03:31 - 03:36Even when you put good gear on him, hes shit.
