Prince (Buff)

Before After
Hitpoints +3% 1615 1669
  • Prince will get a small buff in HP to coincide with this season’s theme.
  • His win rate has also been on the low side, and the balance team wishes to give him a boost.

Royal Delivery (Nerf)

Before After
Damage -10% 402 362
  • Royal Delivery has been dominating in Season 11 as one of the most used cards with equally high win rates.
  • It feels is too powerful for a 3-elixir card.
  • Its drop damage will be reduced by 10% to increase the number of Recruit hits it takes to defeat Musketeers and Wizards.

Bomb Tower (Nerf)

Before After
Lifetime -29% 35 sec 25 sec
  • The long lifetime of the Bomb Tower has enabled over defensiveness in recent metas.
  • It is often played proactively as a defense and is able to survive against multiple assaults because of its long lifetime.
  • Its lifetime will be deduced by 10 seconds (a 29% decrease) to allow for more deck viability.

Earthquake (Rework)

Before After
Movement Speed Reduction -35% -50%
Hit Speed Reduction -35% 0%
Spawn Speed Reduction -35% 0%
  • Combining Earthquake with fast attackers has been a dominating strategy used in many decks in Season 11.
  • Part of the reason why EQ is so effective is because of its slowing effects against enemy attacks, thus allowing cards like Hog Rider to deal guaranteed damage.
  • The rework in Season 12 will remove the hit speed and spawn speed reduction effect completely, but increase its slowing effect against troops’ movement.
  • This change is intended to align the spell with its core design intention: to punish misplaced melee troops, instead of perfectly placed defenders.

Deploy Time Standardization

  • Cards composed of 2 or more troops will deploy 0.1 second apart from each other.
  • For some cards, this is a reduction in deploy times (Minion Horde, Goblin Gant go from 0.15 sec to 0.1 sec). For others, it will be a newly added delay.
  • The only exception will be Skeleton-based cards. Skeletons and Skeleton Army will both deploy instantly.
