Patch Updates affecting Giant

patch release date description
Mar 23, 2016 - 16 months ago Damage increased by 5% - Giving the Giant a bit more damage, instead of hitpoints, will make him a more compelling choice overall, without making him any more potent on defense.
Feb 9, 2016 - 17 months ago Hitpoints increased by 5% - Giant is underused in the late game due to a couple of more enticing tank options (Golem and P.E.K.K.A). More hitpoints should make him a solid option again.
