The HeroClix Watch List is a process by which we identify figures and/or other game elements that we feel may have a negative impact on the game of HeroClix. Being on the “Watch List” in and of itself is not an errata or change to these figures/game elements, but rather an indication that these figures/game elements are under review and scrutiny and action may be taken on the figure/game element if we feel that it would be in the best interest of a healthy HeroClix game play environment. The actions that may be taken can range anywhere on the spectrum of no changes at all (if we determine after review that we see little to no negative impact on game play from the figure/game element in question) to banning the figure/game element (if we determine after review that there is no viable fix that would reduce or eliminate the negative game impact of the figure/game element in question).
As we are constantly evaluating each and every game element and its effect on the game of HeroClix, we reserve the right to add figures/game elements to the HeroClix Watch List at any time that we deem necessary. However, we also intend on making a quarterly assessment of HeroClix game elements that are currently tournament legal (i.e. in the current Modern Age) and report if any figures/game elements need to be reviewed for the health of the game.
Below is a list of figures/game elements that are being added to the HeroClix Watch List for Q2 of 2022:
FF21 #L141 Thanos
WW80 #065 Sky Tyrant
XMRF #055 Blackheart
FFFF #044 Molecule Man
FFFF #s001 Alchemical Potion
FFFF #s002 Alchemical Fire
AFFE #052 Wolverine
HOX #051 Maggott
After a period of review, an article will be posted explaining the errata and/or clarifications (if any) to be made to the listed figures/game elements. The Watch List thread on the WizKids Information Network (WIN) Rules Forum houses all errata to figures/game elements that appeared on a Watch List in one location for players to easily find the official changes to figures/game elements.
