March 28 Hotfixes, Undocumented Changes in 7.2 Including Mobs Scaling with Item Level
2017/03/28 at 7:18 PM
Patch 7.2 is live on US realms and there are multiple changes that were not documented in the patch notes. Check out the
Tomb of Sargeras Survival Guide
for more information about the Patch!
Mobs Scaling with Item Level
Players on the
have noticed that mobs appear to be scaling up based on player item level in 7.2.
If this is intended, it would be a change of opinion from what was stated in the
Legion Developer Q&A
from September 2016:
Q: Do World Quests scale with item level, or will they just become trivially easier for greater rewards?
A: Once you're max level, the world isn't scaling with your gear. There would be problems if we tried to do that - what do you do with a fresh 110 and a raid-geared 110 fighting the same mob in the same place? We could some kind of scaling I guess, like leveling, to normalize it? But I think that would go too far in undermining the core sense of power progression that is part of an MMO. The stuff that was challenging for you in Suramar, that was challenging when you first hit 110 in greens...when you come back in Mythic dungeon gear, you should crush them a bit. The intent is that the content is is something you outgear, outpower eventually.
That said, that's why we add new content.
responded to a thread
on the forums on the issue and confirmed that this was a deliberate change. See the full post for more details.

BlizzCon 2015 - Heroes of the Storm Battlegrounds Panel
2015/11/07 at 6:01 PM
There are a couple of core goals for battlegrounds in Heroes of the Storm. A battleground must eventually end and create conflict.
On battlegrounds, they want to make sure that there are objectives to fight over and if you succeed, you get a good reward.
For example, on Sky Temple, the large size of the map allows many skirmishes because of the time transitioning between lanes. The objective of Skye Temple causes large fights.

BlizzCon 2015 - Overwatch Dev Chat and Q&A
2015/11/06 at 3:45 PM
There was a surprise panel at the Darkmoone Faire stage featuring the Overwatch developers.
The team started off by giving some tips and tricks for Zarya, one of the Warriors in the game. Zarya is not a very good solo tank so the devs gave some tips.
You could find a partner and run 2 Zaryas. You both have a personal shield and a shield you can place on the other player for extra tankiness.
Zarya really shines at high energy levels. Toss a shield on enemies that are about to enter combat to build the power level.
Q: How accurate is the team composition tips system?
A: It's not so much that they want to enforce a meta, but more that they want to inform players that many team composition should have a healer or a tank. The more you play, the less you have to rely on the system to guide you. The system is there for those who are lost.

The team was planning on doing Cho'Gall for a while but there were a couple of problems that had to be solved.
Riding shotgun may not be fun. However, the team actually found it was fun to ride shotgun!
One team will only have 4 heroes. However, the balancing team said they could tune Cho'Gall up.
Cho is the one controlling the movement.
Gall is the caster but does not get to control movement.
Cho'Gall's third ability uses an extra layer of communication.
Runic Bomb - Hurl a Bomb in a targeted direction dealing damage to all enemies it hits.
Runic Blast - Explode the Bomb dealing damage to all enemies around the current position of the bomb.
