      Whoa the chance may not be slim but what a surprise still. I just love it how it's basically a homage to the pre-revamp version of WCD. We should definitely get the same for Epic Anders! But the original one tho, the very first one.

        Ah, it's me again reminiscing that amazing moment when Duncan was both sorrowful and 'sorry not sorry, stab stab stab'.

                Loghain's stats weren't all that out of line - the way we're doing these is finding which characters are the most aberrant from the guidelines and updating the stats, and then choosing heroes that really need a mega overhaul for the full revamps. Unfortunately Loghain didn't make the cut, but there may be other opportunities in the future.

                Sigrun... well. She'll have her day, let's just put it that way.

                    Near enough to not qualify this time. That'll be the answer for any other of the wardens you want to ask about, as well.

                      Then Maddox and Assassin Florianne should be the next targets, as they are clearly the weakest legendaries in-game, even some epics are now better, but I guess its not that easy :P. For LC, the weakest is Greater Frostback Elk, btw Lyeshal, are you choosing champs based on stats only? If so, if you average all heroes in same category - you can choose them however you want, then you can compare it with any current hero stats.
                      For example before the last patch revamp the average LC health was 65023,26 and power was 12491,74. For 1* LC avr health was 44138,61 and power was 12010,89. Therefore applying this logic for Greater Frostback Elk would be: 21870*100/44138,61=> 49,54% and this says how far is Elk from average 1* LC. You can apply this to power and other criteria as well, are you doing something similar? Or is it more on-demand revamp based on player suggestions from other thread on forum?

                        Works for me. The reason i asked is because i only noticed today that he wasn't one of those that got a little help.

                            There's several factors that go into what heroes are chosen for revamps. The selection based on stats is used most for a full group revamp, like with the Qunari and the Warden revamps. When we do a full group like that, the ones most likely to be targeted at least for stat updates are based solely on stat deviations from the guidelines, but we keep an eye on the community pulse (the whole community, between forums, twitter, facebook, and what comes into CS for requests) for the ones that need full revamps.

                                One week after the revamp, and I'm having mixed feelings about King Alistair...

                                He's really very strong, and with the right gears it's now very, very easy to beat any demon's team. No more kitties in the top PG positions!

                                And that's not good...

                                Alistair is an easy win for Bartrands teams, like any other non-fast team. Only fast teams with speed+power could put Barts into troubles now and then. And fast teams with speed+power have now been defeated by Alistair teams, thus leaving a green field for Barts...

                                So Alistair is very good, but he fixed the wrong problem. Instead of "fixing" the Barts, he "fixed" the only teams that could bother Barts.

                                So, more now than ever... NERF BARTRAND!

                                All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                                Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.


                                Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                                What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                                It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                                To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                                What happens if I break the rules?
                                At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                                Posting Suggestions
                                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                                Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
