Battlegrounds - Deathwing Nerf Coming and More

Dean "IksarHS" Ayala continued his twitter activity and posted about a host of Battlegrounds related topics. Most eye-catching among his statements was the fact Blizzard have been playtesting Deathwing at +2 attack on his hero power (currently +3) and will likely nerf him to that soon. He also mentions that Millhouse Manastorm needs a buff!

Read all Dean had to say below:

Quote from Blizzard

9. Deathwing is the most powerful hero in all regions at all levels outside the very, very top rated players. We're playtesting him internally at +2 attack and will likely nerf him to that soon (tm).

Quote from Blizzard

10. The most powerful hero in all regions at all levels was Tirion. We playtested with his hero power at (2) mana and it felt like too big of a detriment. We also thought about changing the minion pool but opted to take some more time to playtest internally while we deactivate.
