Eric Dodds On Hearthstone’s Card Balance Philosophy

Hearthstone lead designer Eric Dodds took the opportunity to write a lengthy article to explain the card balance philosophy and also introduced the new card balance designer Mike Donais, who is experienced in card game design with 10 years hands-on on the field.

  • A specific build or style of play is too strong
  • A card is too weak
