Upcoming balance changes: The T’au’va’s light dims this month

Things are SOON changing in Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge! The T’au Empire arrived as an entirely new faction in the game, bringing the light of the T’au’va and changing how battles are waged drastically. The existing factions adapted to the new challengers, albeit some better than others. The latest meta report showed the T’au Empire coming into the game hot, but their general stats have been trending down as the meta adapted and stabilized.

It is still soon to apply any major change to the new faction, as we would like to check how the field evolves. Nonetheless, after analyzing the data from the latest meta report in combination with player commentary, there are still outliers we wanted to adjust to make the new faction fun to both command and face in battle. This update also changes many other factions of Warpforge, particularly focused on curbing the most frustrating play patterns from last season.

As a reminder, these changes ARE NOT YET LIVE at the time of posting, but you can check out the full list of upcoming balance changes below in preparation for the new season.
