Patch Updates affecting Hog Rider

patch release date description
Jun 21, 2016 - 9 months ago Hog Rider is currently the top choice for tower destruction! While we really enjoy seeing more offensive and action-packed games, we'd ideally like to see a bigger range of offensive cards used. The first step to achieving this is toning down the Hog Rider a notch. The second step is making some of the lesser-used offense cards more enticing.
