Amber's "Buff"
« on: December 14, 2017, 06:34:19 AM »
For all of those who don't play Amber, she got a "buff". What was this buff?
She now starts with 9 gold (8+1).

This feels extremely lazy. Like, 1 gold can make a huge difference depending on how gold starved the hero is at the beginning, but Amber isn't gold starved. She needs a new hero power. Sure this is "nice", but no one is going to play her, I bet people didn't even know until they read this post.

Wanna make Amber good LoG? Make her hero power better. It seems that you finally have come to the idea that Amber needs a buff, but +1 gold isn't going to do it.
I'm the guy that genuinely looks forward to change and when nothing changes, I worry.

I also like reasonable debates.

We've always altered starting gold as a micro dial to attend to balance.

Cool it with the "no one is going to play her" bit, mate. Amber is fine, she's great. She's played regularly, she has a fricken sweet parasol blade. You can prefer other hero powers and that's totally your right, but don't worry about play rates.

Once again, really not digging the sass.
