Aside from adding new Leaders and content like the Flood expansion, the team regularly tweaks the game by introducing balancing changes and other improvements. There's another patch coming to Halo Wars 2 on January 16, 2018 which will fix a number of issues. The developers shared patch notes for next week's update on Halo Waypoint today. The main changes are as follows.
- Fixed a Leader Power exploit that resulted in earning Leader Points at a faster rate. This made it too easy to dominate your opponents.
- Fixed an issue which allowed players to control opposing team units. This seems like quite a major fix because no one should be allowed to control enemy units in a strategy game.
- Infusion damage and duration has been reduced so it's not too powerful. Many other changes have also been made to Infusion so that it's not overpowered.
- Powerful abilities like Cataclysm, Mortar Warlord, and Maelstrom now have longer cooldown timers.
It's great to see that even after so many months Halo Wars 2 is getting extensive balancing tweaks. Hopefully this kind of support will continue in the future so that the title is fair for everyone.
Halo Wars 2 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title that brings real-time strategy to the Halo universe again. During the campaign you lead Spartans, Warthogs and other classic Halo forces in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy known as the Banished. Be sure to check the game out at retailers if you love strategy experiences or liked the first title all those years ago.
