Find the ones you enjoy playing and buy those. Don't buy cheap heroes just to get into Hero League, it's not worth rushing into.

It was a fuck everything group with /v/ one night.
We wanted to do 5 specialists all with lane buffing builds like Infest. We decided we needed a healer and someone wanted to do Valla because dailies, so that's what we went with.
Glad someone else agrees. Seems like the main artist/concept person for the HOTS hero appearances can't do jackshit with female faces as well as drawing eyes with any character. Shitload of same face going on with the females especially. I don't care that they're ugly or pretty.
Sometimes they don't need to be!
lili is for fun
and cutenot lewd
A fuck ton of things changed.
Scaling completely reworked. All heroes start with roughly old level 10 stats now.
Cleanse doesn't make you unstoppable anymore
Tyrande's shadowstalk no longer reveals enemies now puts a heal over time on teammates at level 20 it gives +40% movement speed
Zeratul's void prison cast range was reduced, worm hole's active time was reduced, and his Focused Attacks was replaced with a unique version
Jaina's slow got nerfed & frost elemental doesn't chill nearby enemies when summoned
Johanna's shield doesn't stun as long
Not to mention all the new heroes
playing around with iceblock's animation freeze is fun
>stories of shitters
noticed this guy while watching khaldor bitch about perfectly reasonable qm's yesterday
It's canonical, senpai. Her in game model has a massive camel toe
why did they remove mines instead of garden of terror?
babysitting the enemy terror and destroying all his plants is boring as fuck, but you have to do it every time. our team was getting stomped but won with second terror by just decimating their mid keep + core with it since they ignored it. strongest objective of all the maps
Reminder that she was based on metzen's daughter.
I dont think butts normally go all the way up and around like that
Is Gorge actually better than Bile? How often should I be taking it? Bile seems so good, you slow their entire fucking team. I would think with Gorge you eat something and then proceed to just die under focus.
>run them back behind your gate
Or bring them back into your team, eliminating them from the fight, and kill them when the other team runs from the 4v5. Good times.
Anyone else triggered by this green facepaint ruining their waifu's beauty?

We lost that game.
Greater Spell Shield is Lunara best talent, my deaths would probably be triple without it.
>he thinks thats bad
Good thing about being a bronzie is having other bronzies as enemies.
What hero should I master to make people think I'm intelligent?
>log into Overwatch, see angeltits
>log into Heroes, see LOLIMSORANDUM TOOTHPASTE GURL HEE HEE
Fuck you for getting into Overwatch.
I'm mad jelly.
I wasn't bitching.
I unironically said "I love this game" because I explained to my team in hero select that we should probably pick good characters and they agreed and we got a good team.
I hope Overwatch runs okay on the lowest settings on my craptop. Blizzard games usually run okay on terrible machines as long as I drag the sliders all the way down to PS1 level graphics.
I'm so buying it when it comes out.
I don't even care about the fact that it's going to be dead by the time it's officially released

Idk how we won this shit.
As much as people around here are bitching about it not being free, I keep seeing people falling over themselves sucking the game off, putting it on game of year lists, and shit like that

I want a one piece swimsuit Li Li more than anything in this game.
They can make the game even more shit in return.
I want to take on a radical wave with adventure panda dude.
Pic related. Chen's domestic abuse.
I'm way too out of it, Diablo 3. She would totally flash her boobs if it meant an auto-win for hear team, and even put enough heart into it to seem legit. Then go back to her crusade,
One of the things i hate about the OC they create for the game is how they are so different from the originals, morales sounds cheery but not as sarcastic as the normal medic unit, lunara being the "first of cenarius" (big sister) dryad is a "no fun allowed type" compared to her sisters
only hammer is ok, since she is bigmouthed and rude as the siege tank pilots
if you qm has more than one of abathur, nova, zeratul, rexxar, lunara, murky, gazlowe, sylvanas, chogall, stitches, illidan, brightwing
then be sure to send a ss to blizz bitching about how unfair it is
How people complain about rexxar (in qm mind you) assuming said rexxar isn't retarded? he gives slows, stuns and for a warrior some decent damage to a fight, not to mention the fucker can be turbo gazlowe when it comes to creeping, and still can teamfight properly
My guess is if he is the only "warrior" in your team
if he gets around Misha then Rexxar can't do shit about him except hope his team picks him off
the problem with Rexxar is the Misha isn't the whole hero, Rexxar is a warrior with the vulnerabilities of an assassin but nothing to make up for it
stuff that can chase you to no end fucks him up, he has no real escape, need to time your bear charges properly to even have a chance.
would probably make him decent, god forbid. But a sprint at 13 would be pretty good for him, it's not like people pick anything other than wildfire bear
I'll finish this later. I actually want to play some rounds before I get cranky.
not the guy that requested it, but good stuff
In a 1v1 Illidan might counter him but Illidan can beat a good number of characters 1v1. 1v1 isn't Illidan's problem. Illidan's problem is as soon as he enters a team fight he explodes because he's not good.
Abathur made her too stronk
seriously now she always was top tier specialist, and she recently dropped to 4kgold too
the problem is that any dive at all annihilates him, I only specified Illidan because he's commonly considered to be bad but fucking rapes Rexxar, with someone like Muradin it'd be even worse
Then they went for split pushing, wich she can do pretty well but it's a dick move NOT to inform the team that you're gonna do it, since generally all zagaras go for "nexus frenzy" at 4, maw and double muta asspain.
Also if they don't put creep in objectives/bosses as scout drones, ask them or call them out for being baddies
>tfw you can't heal anub'arak as arthas with coil from the get-go
I don't know what server I was in but once I hit fucking combat I locked up for a good 5 seconds when I saw a Butcher and Lunara come straight for me. I panicked but still made it safe.

Can't wait till they do.
>KT wastes stun on octograb
>Nazeeb fails with corpse wall

>murky is a faggot
No yeah, 4 shitters can fuck it up. if the KT was talented right lunara probably would have died right away anyways.
try linking it faggot
>rationalizing hero choice with RL argument
The beast possible comp is slug with chogall, he put a hat on him and they can melt any hero in under a second and then when slug xeroxes chogull after lvl 10, the enemy team usually just ragequits
>I intentionally play competitive team games like a retard crippling my team for no reason
>"hurr dont treat it like a job bro"
the only reason you get away with this faggotry is because we, as a collective player base, can't say "we're not playing with you anymore" like we could for any other competitive team game for the history of mankind pre-internet.
>First two picks: Illidan and Abathur
>Enemy team first picks: Tyrande and Uther
This might go ok... maybe.
>3rd and 4th picks: Stitches and Lunara
Do you really need to get a popcorn pic to realize you've been trolled?
I mean for fuck's sake, it's 4chan, /vg/, /hotsg/, what are the odds that a normiefag like John there made it here and decided to post that?
pretending to be baited by illiciting tl'drs
normiefags play competitive team games to win. that's what they're designed for. The "hurr I like li-li/ I like Abathur" autist idiot is exactly the kind of person who would post on /hotsg/
>read some azmodan guides on heroes nexus, maybe i'll learn something
>they recommend the "best times to solo siege camps"
are these people fucking retarded? why the fuck would you ever waste your shitty mana pool on merc camps as azmodan when you can 1 shot a minion wave with far less mana?
wow, just wow, these imbeciles are writing guides, and other imbeciles are saying it's "well written" and giving it +1s
humanity never fails to disappoint
>blizzard just slapped a huge heal on top of tyrande's already balanced kit "in name of QM fairness" without any attempt at rebalancing rest of her
HAVE THESE NIGGERS
E V E R
BALANCED A GAME BEFORE?
She was a lot more OP when her E build got 3 talents and it didn't conflict with trueshot which was a level 7 talent.
Tyrande is still my favorite/most played hero but she was pretty lackluster after that. I wasn't aware that she recently got a buff, that must be why I see her all the time now.
Are you retarded? There's huge potential to soloing a camp, like right before a team fight objective for starters. Camps put pressure on lanes which can force players to react at inopportune times.
You must be one of those people who plays a specialist and never leaves the lane for any reason. Those people are scum and don't belong on HotS.
>waste your mana on soloing a camp
>it takes forever anyway
>show up to teamfight late and without full mana
>just fucking get someone to help you do it
you've never really played azmodan, have you?
>Have fun playing with randoms
>Team coordination is good
>Look them up after the game in case their worth playing with again
W E W L A D
>this hero is inefficient at taking merc camps solo
>he can push at least 2 lanes by 1 shotting waves and thus give allies plenty of opportunity to take merc camps
>fuck it i'll stop pushing lanes so i can do something solo even though there's no reason to
see, if you weren't such a shitter that never played azmodan successfully, you'd know that you'd always rather spend your mana on poking before teamfights or pushing lanes (so they pressure during teamfights)
advanced stuff, don't worry about it, at your level you probably don't see many good azmodans anyway
This isn't even amusing to me anymore. It's just making me sad to know there are people like you that I will probably get teamed up with eventually.
Hell, I probably already have, and like I said earlier, you were probably one of those people who never left the lane and when we lost started crying "but muh siege damage!"
>nobody wants to play with a memeslug ;_;
I love playing Lunara but she feels like playing Gazlowe, she's fun but damn it's hard not to feel like an Anchor on your team.
Have to play really well to avoid that every game.
>lanes are pushed
>at least a few enemies visible and defending
>hurrr durr what should we do
>not siege camps
probably one of those retards that gets killed just before the objective
>get the stimpack from the event
>it's the only week of every year I have a life with christmas+new year's
>only use 2 days of it
>not realizing the event was meant for kiddies who get christmas vacation from high school meant to entice them into spending xmas money on freemium content
An scv hero would be cool
>barracks, can only have 2 active at once
>two marines are added to each minion wave
>can place both barracks in one lane
>various talents to upgrade the marines or increase barrack cap or convert into factories
>build bunkers, can hold 4 marines. If a bunker is empty and a marine walks by it will enter, some max # of bunker
>increased repair speed 100%
>passive mineral income
>activate to scan target area, reveal
>spend max mineral amount to train another scv that replaces you when you die
>uses minerals instead of mana
>dead enemies drop minerals (like butcher)
Anything that is focused on repairing buildings will be causing abnormous game length like in dota-2 or league of legends. Blizzard is happy with average games being around 15-20 minutes, so there will be no 'repair guy' in this game ever.
Your 'scv hero' is just a gazlowe with minions replacing turrets.
Rank 30-50 isn't much better. It's filled with people who instantly lock in their favorite heroes despite being a terrible choice and people who stop playing after 5 minutes after they get yelled at for making a bad decision.
I got placed rank 35 after the reset and it took me forever to get past 30 because of people who trolled up games because they stopped caring for one reason or another, it was fucking infuriating. Now I'm stuck at rank 20 because I get people who think it's a good idea to pick 2 warriors who don't tank or deal damage.
>win 4 ranked games in a row as hammer
>decide not to play hammer because forced 50% is out to get me
>mfw infernal shrines
>it's everyone else's fault
eat shit, i solo queued from the beginning as support and still got to 2.7k MMR and rank 1 easily
>everyone is making bad decisions
>my decisions are correct so i am doing this all by myself
>OMG IM PLAYING WITH MORONS
this is pretty much rank 20
If a Cho gets dc'd does the Gall player just float around on a bot?
it's ok anon, typical for nova players
I overexted any all the time.
Why? Playing safe is BOOOOORING. Literally standing near the gate poping out skillshots and then runninfg back in scared with no kills on either side .. holy shit, sing me out.
I don't care if we win or lose, if the game ends with me having like 20 kills and 15 death, i call it a success. this is a game not a job son
>not getting double slow duration because of decoys
>not realizing that the snipe animation on the decoys is enough to fool people into thinking it's you
>not picking lethal decoy if there is the possibility of getting free kills
you are literally this shit

>rank 9 player 2: NO U SUCK
>rank 9 player 3: last picks gazlowe because we're going to lose anyway
>rank 1 players: the same, but the enemy team is overconfident and cocky because our draft is objectively shit, so they constantly overextend and get destroyed anyway
Is thrall bad or something? I never see anyone play him
Just got out of a battlefield of eternity game where nazeebo literally never went to the objective and ended up doing less siege damage than the healer and less hero damage than the tank
But no, please go on about how that's completely my fault
How do you build Thrall?
So far I usually build:
>Block / Rolling Thunder
>Ride the Lightning (Envenom vs stealthies)
>Wind Shear / Frostwolf Grace
>Thrall's only heroic
>Grace of Air / Spellshield
>Nexus Blades / Bolt
I don't know how optimal this is, the extra active heal can be super useful when someone thinks they can finish me off, but the reduced CD on Windfury makes Thrall a beast in longer fights. Although, most fights tend to end with a well placed Sundering and a single burst from everyone.
Is Forked Lightning good against a poke team? I just can't imagine being without the massive heal that Tempest Fury provides.
Thrall already shits on Nova and Zeratul, so you don't need to counter pick for them. Follow through is good in any build, but a little better with forked lightning. Giant Killer should be considered if you plan to take tempest fury.
Forked lightning is always good. You take it when going all in with windfury is a bad idea. Any hero with blinds or good cc can ruin a windfury build. Forked lightning can't really be countered, and you don't necessarily lose healing if you took ride the lightning.
Both Thrall's heroics are very good. Earthquake is very strong against enemies with poor escape and to combo with other heroics. The level 20 upgrade for earthquake is pretty broken; it's like 4 storm shields.
>falstad waits for the cd to finish so that he can fly back to the base instead of hearthing
>get Razgriz randomly as an enemy
I feel shame. I'm glad I'm anonymous...
>still no martillo gf
also on the us server i have chen, murk, tychus illidan and tlv all roughly the same level 7-8
i played nova before she became a shitty meme
>3 levels behind
>tell my team to just let the enemy win
>people start crying saying to report me
>lose 10 minutes later instead of 5 because they didn't give up
Where is that surrender vote?
if you are going to bring reddit shit here, then you might as well go all out, here is a link a he gave for his build http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/LrkMzy
>decide to do quest in ai
>get put as 5th for a 4 stack
>they say gg after
>curious as fuck
>check their profiles all of them look like this
They legit just stack as a group and do 6 min ai runs and thats it
I know a guy that only does vs ai, my only problem how easy it is, wish the bots weren't so braindead
even in elite, you hit the core, put a constate AoE between the core and the safe zone, and they just dance around. Also when they do a single merc the whole bot team does a deathball and pushes with said mercenaries
As they have 'coming soon' on vs ai tab, maybe that means one day thay'll improve AI to sort of adequate competitive level. And I'm pretty sure it's gonna be the same day as the start of season 1, in other words - never.
>laughs at the prospect of competitive raiding
>has never engaged in it
>most likely only has 1-2 mythic bosses downed at most (whichever are easy enough for the braindead)
>it's not his fault he can't find a proper guild

>Owls everywhere sniping kills left and right
>Uses shadowstalk as an extra heal
I really hope it's something like a Tower Defense map(s). They used to have something like that back in Wc3 custom games days.
Waves of minions come at you, getting stronger. You're not going to win, it's just about how long you can last. There can still be objectives and camps and what not to make it interesting. It spawns bosses every 5 waves or so. ect
yeah, there will definitely be plenty of in and out
if you know what i mean
doesn't work since they can see your profile right away to check I always do at least.
What you should do in that situation is go to google translate and make a phrase something like "go fuck yourselves you fucking faggots" and than just paste this "идти eбaть ceбя вы, блин, пeдики" guranteed dodge like 9 out of 10 times also make sure you have illidan highlighted
should bw be able to double outheal tyrande + reghar
we got all the memes. can we still lose?
should bronze players should not be allowed to see the scoreboard or hotslogs
hey dumb fuck because brightwing heals in an aoe all the time passively her scoreboard numbers in theory will be high no matter what even if she barely keeps anyone alive
if you start sniping jaina/falstad instead of shooting into artanis brightwing would have much less healing done
>team is Illidan, Nova, Zeratul, Kael with me as Bwing
>lose 1 fight for curse tribute but still doing well
>game becomes even
>they all start to flame one another and the Illidan refuses to play the game and just does the camps and split pushes for the rest of the game and calls himself a troll and only speaks in Emoticons
>Zeratul is slinging 6th grade tier insults
>Nova is talking about how she is better than everyone else
>Kael is laughing at everyone and bragging about his LoL account's MMR
>I just stay silent the entire game after telling them to relax and focus because we still have a chance to win this after the first fight loss
>each of them keep telling me to follow them because they are right and they solo carried games on their character before
>my face during the entire game
How did I get branded with every single stereotype in this game?
>the most annoying hero in the game
>useless in Hero League since she's so easily counter picked...
>... yet most of the time in Quick Meme you won't have that
>so her fat fucking ass sits there and does more damage than any assassin
>you'll die diving to kill her so you either have to endure her bullshit AAs or just forget about winning the teamfight
Move over pandas, cutest and most fun support coming through.
so we won in spite of gaz's relentless suicide camp steal attempts. the game ended with our team storming the enemy core while nova was busy sniping a wave of creeps that threatened our 100% health, 100% shield core.
who is your favorite russian streamer waifu and why is it gela?
>watching streams instead of playing the game
Tfw you added commanderisuckdick to ignore long ago
Tfw you hear mewn say "yea I don't know what you're trying to do there commander but its not funny. Trying way too hard"
I dunno man
I would gladly if it looked like something that is here to stay (he did a huge thing for this game desu), but if Blizz decides to show MMR the website will be gone.
Might be desperation for some money before it all goes away, as cool and useful as his website it, he hasn't updated the client since forever and it still has that bug that causes it to crash all the time.

Chen is pretty fun when the enemy team has no stuns.
Literally walk into them and mash d
