Hello Citizens!

Welcome to the final Balance Pass of the year; the end of Season 25. As well as the usual bodyguard changes and cards being added to the general pool, we can give a little bit more information on the upcoming seasonal events we have planned for the game. To skip reading all these words, you can check out a much more detailed preview by checking out our latest twitch stream on demand by clicking this link: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1235203940 

To talk a little more broadly around it, there’s a new Chaos Warlord coming just after Christmas, and a brand new Exploration Boss Fight happening at New Years. In addition to these highlight moments, we’re going to be running giveaways and regular events for the entire duration of the holiday period. There will never be a dull moment, and plenty of things going on to entertain you while you’re stuck inside (or Emperor-forbid, with your extended family).

This isn’t the last time you’ll hear from us this year though. On this Monday (the 20th of December) we are going to go live with a Giveaway Stream on Twitch. This is hugely exciting, and is an awesome opportunity for you, the players, to hang out with the devs and the community at large, and win some terrific in-game rewards. Did somebody say… Eisenhorn?

Right. That’s enough of that, on to the meat of this specific blog post, which is of course the balance changes which are coming into effect at the start of the next Ranked season:
