May I ask why this isn't done here?


Speaking from a personal opinion rather than company officially I agree that this approach is the ideal and believe we as a company also looks for the more iterative approach. There are however many things that influence when updates are possible and we could write an essay on them but it's not information we are going to divulge. So for many reasons it has not happened more iteratively and may not in the future. However, we are doing our best to improve Cabals in the best way we can as quickly as we can. We appreciate your patience and look forward to bringing the balance changes.

No, as I understand it there is a yearly subscription and no fees for updating.

But anyway, this is somewhat off topic so let's get back to the question at hand. Which card change is everyone looking forward to the most? (which is your favourite?)

See you on the battlegrounds!

I cant see fionog balanced even after update:
compare:
Bogatyr 4 base + 2 ability (condition: removing unit with greater power than 4) and fionog 4 base + 0 ability (free deployment/stronhold defence).
Or compare:
Eldrich-Fionog
Mechanic-Fionog (mechanic is cheapier, but you lose body of it and with Fionog you have power 4 unit)

Even without activating its ability Bogatyr has a good body, better than Fionog before its ability. Also the exhaustion is to be considered as a condition. Fionog can't be compared instead with Mechanic and Eldritch that are common units with 1 loayalty, you Sampo

BTW another week has gone and we're still discussing about Danann OPness. Probably the only way to get a real balance is to ban Danann cards from game. :?

You dont just fionog as target - its use is to defend, so you put it in close combat situation.

PS: get a grip!

Seems like Fionog is weak to you. And IMO 4* for a 2 power with a single conditional removal is pretty weak.
Consider Bogatyr can approach a 5power unit without fearing it, Fionog can't
Consider Eldritch can approach a Banshee without fearing it, Fionog can't
Consider Mechanic can destroy a 3 power unit a tile ahead for half the cost of a Fionog.

If you fear approaching it instead you'll have plenty of ways to remove it: that 2 power is ridiculous.

PS: you Sampoteur :lol:

You still didnt get it: fionog is defence, not offence unit, so its better to put it in defence context (plenty of sutch situation in game), so look at it this way:
1) free dp close combat removal
2) 4 power unit
All for cost 4, its better at defending than bogatyr, except if opponent use Effegy, but since you use fionog you probably gonna run gnomes and will have ways to shut down this noughty unit of Effegy :D

usually (but not always), when my opponents use fionog to defend their stronghold that means the game is going very well for me

Also deploying frost messes up with last minute Fionog defense of stronghold.
