Gordrakk, Fist of Gork Update
It’s been exciting watching the reactions to Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions over the last month since the game launched, especially seeing decks being shared by all of you on our forums, Facebook, Discord and other social media. We have, however, noticed one strategy that is proving to be particularly dominant (primarily in the Digital game, where we have the most match information).
Based on the feedback we’ve seen, as well as data drawn from matches in the Champions digital game we are going to be making a change to one Champion card in the game. Gordrakk, Fist of Gork has proved to be an incredibly powerful Champion, with his Heroic Act providing a game-ending amount of damage in conjunction with cards like Cowardly Grots and Grot Slashas on top of the already consistent damage strategy that the Grand Alliance: Destruction presents.
Gordrakk, Fist of Gork has been changed as follows:
Previous: Heroic Act: Rotate all your Units to their final corner. This Heroic Act can only be used once per game.
New: Heroic Act: Rotate all your Orruk Units to their final corner. This Heroic Act can only be used once per game.
We believe this change moves Gordrakk away from the one turn maximum damage strategy with Grot cards whilst keeping him in his rightful place as the ‘Boss of Bosses’. This change is effective immediately in the Physical game (and will be updated in the Card Database) and has been adjusted in the Digital game in a recent update. At the current time we will continue keeping a close eye on how cards develop (given the early stage of the developing meta).
