The Daily Moot (12/21/18)

We're giving away FIFTEEN consoles (of your choice) plus one game to come with it. It is completely free to enter! Watch the video or click the link at the bottom of this post to learn more about the event.
2. Valve Changes Artifact Balance Philosophy, Nerfs Expensive Cards Valve previously stated they would never tweak cards aside from some rare exceptions, but they’ve changed their stance. An update that came out yesterday changed eight cards, including some of the most prominent ones. Axe, the game’s most expensive card, has been nerfed slightly. If you bought any of the cards in Artifact that have been nerfed, you can sell it back to valve for its peak price 24 hours before the nerf announcement. Kind of neat. Do you think this shift in philosophy will help Artifact recover some of its playerbase?
3. Major Hearthstone Nerfs Hopefully Shake Things Up Earlier this week Blizzard revealed sweeping nerfs to Hearthstone that may qualify as the biggest balance update the game has ever seen. Nerfs to iconic, deck-defining cards for the Druid, Rogue, Paladin, and Shaman classes are sure to result in massive metagame shifts. Us Arena players haven’t been left out of the fun either, as the menace of Arena known as Mind Control Tech is no longer available to draft. Huzzah!
4. Darksiders 3 Patch makes Combat Like the Previous Games Darksiders 3 has generally gone over well with fans of the series, but one of the biggest complaints is how different the game’s combat felt from compared to the first two Darksiders games. Well, the game’s developers heard that feedback and have introduced a new option called ‘classic combat.’ This will feel much more like the original style of combat we grew to know and love with Darksiders 1 and 2. There are some other small updates in the patch, like a few new checkpoints, but not much more.
