DoW II: Chaos Rising - Balance-Patch steht an

Mit dem im April veröffentlichten Patch 2.2 sollten die größten Balance-Baustellen in Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising aus der Welt geschafft werden. Mit dem Patch 2.2.1, der wahrscheinlich in der nächsten Woche freigegeben wird, soll die Balance weiter verfeinert werden. Folgende Veränderungen sind geplant: 

Building on the balance adjustments from our last update, we have been working on 2.2.1. This is a data only balance update that has been in the works for a few weeks, and it is currently in the final stages of development and testing. Right now we expect that we will be releasing the update sometime next week.

The Balance and Multiplayer teams started work on 2.2.1 right after 2.2 shipped and we have a whole lot of good stuff in store. One thing to note about balancing is that when we put a patch out we arent thinking to ourselves "this game is perfect this time; we have addressed everything that is wrong with this game." We have long term and short term plans, we work within the time frames of each patch, and we feel we accomplish the mission if balance is closer than the previous patch.

2.2 was a patch to address the most grievous balance issues after the release of Chaos Rising. Fortunately there were very few issues to deal with. Once 2.2 went out we started looking at more underlying problems, gathering metrics and evaluating the meta-game. This is always an interesting period because metrics tell us the real story and that story doesnt always align with the complaints of players. For instance: Eldar are not statistically top of the meta-game. Once the information is gathered we must try and interpret the data; why does this hero have a much better win percentage? Why is this piece of gear too effective? These questions sound easy to answer but actually are not and any possible solution is going to spread massive ripples through our little pond of balance.
