Patch Updates affecting Cannon

patch release date description
Jun 21, 2016 - 10 months ago We'd like to see the Cannon and Tesla as interchangeable options depending on your deck preference and needs. Currently the Cannon offers more value and is the clear choice. This change will hopefully make the decision more interesting.
May 18, 2016 - 11 months ago With the Royal Giant's meteoric rise in fame, the Cannon has remained very popular, despite our last round of balance changes, and is the second most used card at the top. We'd like to take a few more hitpoints away and make it less of an obvious inclusion in so many decks.
May 3, 2016 - 11 months ago The Cannon simply offers too much value for 3 Elixir.
Mar 23, 2016 - 13 months ago Lifetime decreased to 30sec (from 40sec) - The Cannon offers a bit too much defensive power and value for 3 Elixir. A lower lifetime will reduce its staying power.
