>What hero should I buy?
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.

I think I would be okay with that.
>not solo queueing
I hope you all realize that blizzshit went the RIOT route, where they intentionally match you with mentally retarded people because "hurrr durr you're a highly coordinated premade"
If you want to improve your chances, duo queue with someone on voice comm. It's expected of you.
I've been winning almost all my solo queue games, as soon as I duo with someone I get potatoes on the team. You have been warned,
The scaling changes really helped Morales. She's one of the better supports now. Not first pick material but she's still good.
The thing that makes her look bad is that she's all about positioning. You can't do that and she's going to look terrible.
I can do it just fine, the problem is that the other 3 people on the team need to do it too.
And at my MMR, most warriors just dive the enemy team and get shat on, then use their escape to come back for heals.
I main supports and I'd play her more often if I would trust my teammates.
>we have a pretty okay team: Tyrande, Raynor, Jaina, Diabetes , Muradin.

Who /malf/ here?
He's still my most played hero. He's awesome when playing with a thrall.
OK another question.
Can I at least hold my ground in a 1v1 fight?
Don't mean being able to kill butcher or thrall, but what I dislike about playing support is that of I'm alone with an enemy I have to run away like a bitch.
Not only can you hold your own but you can win a lot of them because you have built in healing through the power of punch they do not. Not to mention if things get dangerous dash out to a minion or something.
Too bad she has the same exact voice as Nova, so that might be a little hard to implement. I guess Grey could just voice her more like Azula from Avatar or something
He has a lot of different builds depending on what you need. Never take Insight either Transcendence if you are solo healer. Iron Fist should really only be taken if you really need the damage.
Only take Divine Palm if it looks like your team is competent. A lot times it won't even proc or it doesn't matter. SSS takes positioning and is best used on one person. If you do take SSS always get the upgrade for it at 20.
The best advice is to look at teams and how things are going for your build with him he has a lot of viable talents on every level. He's not like Kael where he only has one static build that you take every game.
Use that skill that gives you vision on your dash, it's extremely useful against stealthys. Don't be afraid to get into the thick of things, since your attacks will heal your teammates anyway. The hardest part is timing that divine palm, but if you can do it correctly it can be game changing.
>In the Stun and Burst meta.
Aren't Brightwing and Rhegar technically worse? Either way, it's sad to see a lot of supports become garbage overnight.
I pretty much only play supports and get flamed if I don't choose Tyrande or Morales.
Some of the serpent talents are good. healing on serpent's attack is as close as Lili gets to a targeted heal. And you can keep it up on two people with timeless creature and yourself if you chose sidekick.
Also obviously loli wouldn't pick kung fu hustle if she was getting busted every fight.
though healing serpent + timeless creature is amazing with KFH, 5 serpents lol
Tyrande, Morales, Uther and Kharazim are all still good picks. Rehgar is mid but suffers until late game. Tass is still really good as a side support.
Malf, LiLi and Brightwing are really the only supports that actually hurt your team right now. They can't keep up with the insane burst teams put out now.
>He doesn't know about herbal cleanse and surging winds
Malfurion is literally the worse support at dealing with any kind of burst damage. Even BW has a pretty strong shield at level 7, damage reduction with pixie dust and a fast ranged silence.
You better hope the person your trying to heal has the lowest health or it's not going to do shit when you throw it.
Also if you are going to try and rely on cleanse why would you pick a character who gets a shitty version of it way latter than anyone else.
>shitty version of cleanse
>heals, increases movement and cleanses
it's only shitty because you want to use it like cleanse, which it isn't
also because you get it so late in the game and you have to give up the one talent that boosts your healing by the most
but it's still strong as fuck and all you bitches would be whining about Li Li being OP right now if it were moved to any other tier
Considering Tyrande is OP and in every game, the person she marks, the person who will need healing the most, is almost guaranteed to have the lowest hp.
Herbal is mathematically the best cleanse. It's literally every time you Q instead of only once every 30 seconds at best. It's not about relying on it either. It's about being the objectively best pick at that tier and against the current meta for that hero.
It's shitty because you can't aim it reliably in a team fight. You either have to wait until he's the hero with the lowest health or go out of your way to try and make him the only one in your range.
Meanwhile other heals just press 1 and click on the hero.
If the character is marked then there is nothing LiLi is going to do to save them because her healing isn't going to keep up with the burst that is about to follow. Even if you cleanse one stun he's going to get instantly stunned again or just killed.
It's why LiLi's win rate has dropped so dramatically. Even her ult has a hard time keeping up with the burst if used around other team mates because it doesn't heal everyone at the same time and targets those more hurt first. Not to mention can be knocked out if really easy now because almost every hero picked nowadays has a stun.
She's just not good a good pick vs most comps right now sadly. Especially since most comps don't even relay on AA to do the majority of their damage right now.
>diablo:im going to out dps you
have you guys seen these?
Um, maybe because of
>lack of heroes
>bullshit overall heroes balance
>most of heroes are below 50% winrate
>some heroes are so shitty that their winrate is in range of 30-40%, and that's when we are lacking heroes duh
>wtf matchmaking for quick memes
>christmas sale prices for heroes and skins are fine, beyond christmas sale the prices are too high for such a meme game
>overall development process and the game changes are so fucking slow, that it feels like the game is maintained by few 18 y/o college students in their free time
>Blizzard is not giving a single fuck on this game
>still no bans for solo ranked games (hero league) and the forced meta bullshit as a fact
>no seasons, no in-game mmr info, no competitive stuff - ranks right now are sort of worthless shit
I dunno, it just feels like this game is still in beta.
You're a fucking retard, son.
Apart from the substantial AA damage, she also generates a lot more rage, so she keeps her Wrath up longer, AND she does more slams.
Fucking retards playing this game, wow.
desu hes right familia
if you are picking stim on medic you better have Raynor or valla. otherwise it's better to have medivac
not saying it doesn't help sonya but that's true for every hero. any stimmed hero is better than their non stimmed self. there's just better targets than sonya
>champs so easy to learn and with such a low skill cap that map rules are constantly being created and adjusted to spice up the game
Is there any competitive gaming genre that hasn't been turned into babby tier? Shit like LoL and HotS is full of players who thought DOTA 2 was too hard to learn, or too user unfriendly to new players; and DOTA 2 is full of players who thought DOTA was unreasonably difficult learn.
>my opinion as a 2.5k mmr player that no one has heard of is worth more than a player that has 4k mmr on multiple servers, has video evidence of his skill, and is literally paid to analyze the game
Are you even trying
If Grubby is so good, why doesn't he take cleanse against Murky?
>defending a nigga you'll never meet
>who gives no shits about you.
We're drifting from the argument here.
If your team has Raynor, stim is better on him. If your team doesn't have Raynor then don't pick stim. If you have medic and Sonya and stim you're in QM and you can stim whoever you want.
>the feel when moonfire build is not viable.
>If your team doesn't have Raynor then don't pick stim.
Raynor isn't the only hero with good auto attacks or who benefits from movement speed.
In any case, anything is better than the fucking feed bus
you pick dropship if there are no good stim targets, e.g mage/warrior comps and it's a big map like bhb, cursed. But mainly because there are no good stim targets.
Medivac can be used as an escape (for mostly yourself) and disengage tool.
....are you trying to math? because that's not how math works...
you can't imply that Medivac has a higher win percentage just because the 'average win rate' is higher than the winrate of Stim
math doesn't work that way you faggot
>the 60 people who use dropship increase the winrate by a totally negligible amount so clearly it's the better ult despite the much smaller sample size decreasing the data's value
so you're telling me that the 60 games played with the dropship have an 80% win rate to make up for the small sample size compared to the 500+ with Stim when comparing the average win rate for Morales?
I'm saying there is insufficient evidence to make a direct comment on the usefulness of medivac, while there is direct evidence of stimdrone not being the only viable choice
>tyrande picks starfall
>enemy team is predominantly melee
>diablo and sonya ignore the starfall location and dive kael, moving the fight away from it
>WHY THE FUCK PICK STARFALL OMFG WE NEED THE HEALS SUCH A SHIT ULT
>i'm doing the same damage as our shitfaced jaina and slightly more healing than the enemy uther
wow, autism speaks
>there is insufficient evidence to make a direct comment on the usefulness of medivac, while there is direct evidence of stimdrone not being the only viable choice
the only direct evidence slogs gives us about Morales is that she's garbage in masters league HL

a few games ago, our muradin would use his stun on the enemy johanna / uther before the teamfight, then move away, a bit, then jump into the enemy team and thunderclap
then he'd ask why he dies in 3 seconds

Fuck Abathur players they ruin every game they're in
I fucking hate Hammer. Not playing with her or against her, just the way these assholes at Actiblizzshit think it's ok to make a hero.
Her Spider Mines are fucking GARBAGE. They bug out VERY often, and every single talent associated with them is trash.
Her W is meh, it has its uses but it's nothing special.
She is build "all around siege mode", but in fact, in most situations NOT being in siege mode is the best course of action.
She used to be shit. So they buffed her. How did they buff her?
Well, instead of fixing the garbage that is her Spider Mines, or MAYBE making her mount more versatile / fun / at least lower its cooldown, or hell, even a whole damn rework, they decide to... INCREASE HER DAMAGE and give her a little bit more HP.
The damage she shits out is fucking insane. And that is all. I cannot think of a more boring hero. You base your game around protecting that hero so she can delete the enemy team.
Fuck man, I hope we don't get more heroes like that. Worst design possible.

HOLY SHIT HOW
WHY THE FUCK do I get this shitter in the game when I have 2000 games played????
This game is dead as a dodo.
For two days I didn't play a single match because the game took more than ~250 seconds to find me a game - in fucking QUICKmatch. So I just left it and played something else, no biggy: I liked HOTS because it was a nice, relaxing way to spend an evening, you'd just click play and ten seconds later, you were in the game. If the game failed to find me a match in a reasonable time, I just left it and played something else
Today I found a game after my third attempt. I was matched up with an AFK polish Arthas and a player who played with a random hero. I was up against a 5 man premade. We were holocausted.
The cherry on top of that shitcake was the fact that the game took 3 minutes to find me a decent game, and at the end it put me against a 5 man fucking premade, giving me a team of memeloving slav fucks.
I don't know if it's because new MM system or because the player base is horrifyingly low, but I don't really care. The game is dead. There is no way in hell a casualised ASSFAGGOTS like this can exist if you need 5 minutes to find a game in fucking quickmatch. What's the purpose of playing an instafun quickmatch in a casualised game if you need to wait several minutes to even enter a game?
Blizzard forums are filled with fanboys going "Will the trolls stop saying the game is dead?". /hotsg/ is one of the slowest generals on /vg/. Blizzard is still not realeasing definite player numbers. Instead, they go for desperate tactics such as that recruit-a-buddy system. A shame, I liked an idea of ASSFAGOTS 100% oriented on flashy team fights and with games lasting ~25mins tops.
sorry for the blogpost I'm venting
At least he has good taste in warriors desu
I don't know why this community is so hard on the HOTS team. They're slow, but they're nowhere near as bad as the rest of Blizzard. Dustin also responds to most questions/criticism or at least faves posts to show you he read them.
If the Hearthstone team balanced HOTS, Leoric would still be completely broken and dominating the game.
It's only taking 200+ seconds because you're picking tyrande and kael
If you pick Lili, abathur, fuckin chen, you can legit get games in under 5 seconds
Stay mad, tier fag
Every TCG ever created is at least a litle bit broken, because you're dealing with hundreds (thousands) of cards, with thousand possible synergies, and at the end of the day, you need to force people to buy new editions instead of clamoring to their favourite old ones.
HOTS is a relatively small game - compared to Lol or Dota - and it still has enourmous problems with balancing, matchmaking and even graphical presentation (SC2 engine is shit and should be buried). We're talking about a game made by one of the biggest studios in the game, and a game going for the one of the most saturated markets out there (MOBA). Fact of the matter is that HOTS is shit compared both to other Blizz games and other games in its genre, and Blizzard doesn't give a flying fuck.
>Dustin even favortes stuff!
>thousands of cards
Who gives a shit, if a 7/7 minion costs 7 mana, and they release a 7/7 minion that costs 7 mana, spawns TWO 1/1 minions that deal 1-4 damage to a random target upon death, THAT IS INCLUDED IN PRETTY MUCH EVERY SINGLE GOOD DECK?
But it's not OP, it's totally fine, kek. It is irrelevant that as soon as I got it my winrate went up 10 (TEN) percent when I included it in my fucking ZOO WARLOCK DECK.
LoL has over twice as much content as Blizzard and captured the market from the start. Being slightly better than Riot doesn't mean shit when Riot doesn't have to do fucking anything but Blizzard needs to convince people to play HotS despite already having time and perhaps money invested in LoL or Dota
What the fuck are you talking about. I just said that every TCG ever created /always/ has some imbalanced shit thrown in it and dominating the meta for a while. Just because HS is retarded as fuck doesn't mean that HOTS is any less retarded.
What is map awareness?
What do you mean, retreat when my allies ping me to retreat? Don't I have to try and destroy towers even though the enemy specialist is right there, ready to stop me?
and no one gives a shit about HotS now, and they'll continue you to not give a shit as long as Blizzard thinks it's ok for it to play like an alpha AND TAKE 2 MONTHS TO RELEASE FINISHED AND PLAYABLE FUCKING HEROES
LoL was just as popular as DOTA and HoN when it first came out. By the second-third year, HoN dropped out completely out of the combination and LOL and DOTA became the dominant ASSFAGGOTS games, which stands to this day.
Meanwhile HOTS can even compete with Smite.
And what about evey other hero I mentioned Mr. Strawman.
Also, I didn't realise you need to pick only certain heros if you want to even start a game in a decent ammount of time. Nice mental gymnastics there blizzfag.
I was the Tyrande on her team, retard.
>only enemy with a stun on the enemy team is muradin
>i hit him with my owl, you can see him going bot
>spam retreat pings on the dumb cunt
>she goes closer to their towers to throw a pod
yeah, go fuck yourselves, both of you
The Unreal Engine game looks like the most boring, bland shit imaginable. At least Blizzard has brand recognition to go off of. Epic is gonna be dead in the water unless they pull off some insane shit.

Hey I've been playing for a week or so and have some basic questions about this game
>Is EXP global and not shared in a radius?
I see I can level up from the fountain without being next to any enemies. Is EXP shared throughout the team globally? If so, why doesnt everyone just 5-man middle to brute force?
>Towers and Keeps
Whats with the 2nd tower after you destroy the first set of towers & wall? And the little shrine next to it? Do your creeps get stronger in that lane or something? I just dont understand why theres 3 towers per lane per blockade
>You have to be near creeps dying to get xp
Thats what I thought too, but then why do I level up while at the fountain?
I don't like that you can't see your XP or level and have no idea how much progress is left before you level up again.
>The shrine next to the big cannon tower is a healing well. Click on it.
Holy shit I didnt know that thanks
Your team level is shown at the top of the screen with a bar that fills up to show progress to next level.
Think of it as a teamwide xp pool. You all collect xp and put it in the pool and all level up according to the total xp collected by your team.
Actually I like hots because games dont last an hour. You have to bank an entire hour on some guy you've never met not being a retard and losing the game because one hero can solo your entire team

>Is there a hidden "special" queue in Hots?
By "special" I mean - Me and two friends play Heroes quite regularly. We are usually Duo when we can and are all in roughly the same mmr bracket.
Friend 1 is sortof like myself, dont write much to other players except for some short encouraging "gj!" "lets take this" lines.
Friend 2 has a habit of writing passive agressive stuff at times but has to my knowledge never been silenced or whatnot.
So to the point: Whenever I duo with Friend 1, we have pretty good games. People communicate alright and usually GGs even when stomped. We have our share of toxic people but its usually quite seldom they show up.
When either of us is duoing with Friend 2, its like, I cant explain it... The rage and toxicity is real. We make sure he dosnt write any offputting stuff when were playing with him so its not him starting stuff, but it feels like he is someway put in a seperate queue with these really unpleasant players as this always happens when duoing with him. And when I write always, I mean always. The struggle is truly real.
So is this just bad luck or karma for this guy or is it by design? Anyone else who experiences this?
Could be. I mean not in terms of toxicity, but I have the same experience. Games are just fun qued with Friend 1. With Friend 2 it seems to give us the worst comps and team mates.
I assume that >>127485615 is the answer.
>play anub'arak in QM
>get teams filled with murky/nova/aba/TLV/azmo
how the fuck am i supposed to set up ganks with this. the most i can do is babysit the nova and stun everything she attacks, but that doesn't do much when she just wants to chase around a full health jo all game long
Mosh pit isn't a channeled stun, it's a channeled ability. Someone with cleanse can still get fucked by Mosh because it reapplies a short ass stun several times a second if you're within the radius while its channeled. Murky ult is a single stun, not several in the span of a single channel.
How about more shitters bitching? This person hosts a heroes podcast and the biggest hearthstone podcast; where none of the three hosts, who have been playing since alpha, have ever hit legend. Their patron is also at $858 per week.

I hate this fucking game
What if all the shitty players are actually just plants from Riot to shit up the game. Riot is owned by the Chinese and they would have millions of people at their disposal to act like retards in matchmaking and turn people off the game.
>$1700 a month podcasting about this game
>$3400 podcasting about hs

Quality servers. Literally running worse than Action 52.
also what was with the live coverage of me shitposting in mewnfare's twitch channel like seriously now I know no one here is any good at having an actual conversation but leave that shit to /v/eddit y'know
>Become competent enough at a hero to do fucked up talents and still work it out
>Find fun builds
SGT with full concussive blast talents into a corner of 10 spider-mines fun mode, moderately successful if Z is used too in specific foggy areas.
>Spending 3.5 CDs to do something that looks cool
Any other fantasy scenario builds?
Yeah, I honestly felt kind of bad because I was with /vg/ at the time, wanted to do my best but simply couldn't play the game, yet had too much respect for them to just leave them with a hopeless bot. only bots that are remotely competent are ETC / Kharazim / LiLi, the former two because they have an imhuman reaction time for some things and the last because it's autopilot the hero
also pic related is me upsetting TWG, one of mewn's mods who is either a very insecure gay or simply a SJW so pathetic they think using the word 'fag' is hate speech. they're also genuinely autistic about 'muh chat experience' and hate copypastas. Twitch really isn't for them. I was bored out of my skull, hung over and could only be arsed to shitpost. Does that make me a bad person?
dropping the trip after this post, don't bother filtering it.
That would explain how it's even harder to get any form of conversation here nowadays, LOLbabbies raiding the place.
And you should TRIP over some BRONZE barbed wire into a WOOD chipper.
Is Hammer good? I'm still new.
I think I like Hammer the best so far - but I've only played maybe 7 or so heroes.
Is Giant Killer good, or a gimmick talent? I can't tell if I should be getting the 1.5% damage or the 25% damage if not attacked.
Also; I prefer to the Range upgrade, however some guides I've seen suggest to get the 10 second damage burst upgrade instead. Is that other talent really better than more range?
I just noticed its already been 3 weeks since Lunaras release. I guess blizzard cant be bothered with the 4 week, 3 week, schedule anymore?
And Lunara was 4 weeks from cho, who was 4 weeks from artanis.
So 4 week release schedule set now?
I didnt see it before, and they posted nothing about it in the news section or on the website
nothing on reddit either
>Sylv complains about me initiating 5v1 despite standing right fucking behind me
>Sylv gets out damaged by an Arthas for the majority of the game despite having terror every single time
>Ping for core 100 times after we wipe enemy team except for rexxar
>team stays in base to def rexxar instead of destroying core
Why the fuck am I matched with these incompetent fucking people. She didn't hit a black arrow all game either. Sylv is one of the retard proof heroes too.
Hammer is good, although she needs to be positioned right or she'll be picked off
Giant Killer is a fine talent to take if your enemies have a LOT of beefy characters on their side.
the 25% damage is GREAT for team fights if your team can keep the heat off you and keep enemies in firing range
I am unfamiliar with the 10 second bust upgrade. I would see if that talent will synergize with your playstyle and other talents you take.
Giant killer is generally the least shitty option at 13. First strike can be made useless really wasy and isnt reloable in solo queue.
Maelstrom shells at 4 is more or less the best talent at that tier. There are some meme builds with focused attack, but maelstrom lets you proc your passive without sieging, which is really good.
Cho was 3 weeks from artanis's public release date. Lunara was supposed to be 3, so I guess greymane is the 4 week part of the cycle. I think the next one will be 3 weeks after grey.
>everything goes smoothly and well
>top damage, win fights and get objectives
>Nova gets a couple of levels

Why is this bullfuckingshit allowed?
She literally just fucking oneshots you.
And there's no detection. Despite Blizzard wasting one entire slot and a talent on vision, she has 0 fucking detection.

So Nova is a hero against which you're not allowed to leave your base unless with at least 3 other allies or else you get oneshotted to death?
Wow what a well designed hero.
So with Artanis should I be taking reactive parry, or seasoned marksman? I know you can be getting an extra 1 or 2 hundred damage per combo hit with marksman, which seems a bit better than a slighter less damage from one or two auto attacks when i already have a shield.
It depends. I really only take reactive parry if the enemy team has Nova or Raynor. Nova because most of them take the slower but more damage AA attacks which means you have block up for almost everyone of them and Raynor because he's Raynor.
>Illidan on my team last game.
>Uses the hunt on Kael every time. Kael gets cloned by Abathur.
>They laugh as they keep him stunned over and over while Fuse Bombing him and blowing him the fuck up.
If you're the only warrior on the team then you need to take it.
Otherwise it's situational.
What he said, but I love to take block against Arthas, too.
Blocking a boosted frostmourne significantly decreases his burst damage.
>Ended up spamming Raynor for most of my quests and winning almost all of them
>Suddenly I end up on a 5-6 loss streak with any hero possible
This either is the forced 50% meme, or the matchmaker is a bitch, or karma
>pushing core with a low HP team against raynor and diablo
sorry bro, sometimes you just can't look at the minimap
had to do triage there, shit was hardcore.
abathur had no excuse for not moving his dumb ass to bot lane, we needed EVERYONE to push that core.
>Lowest damage Raynor telling Azmodan and Abathur, who are top damage and siege in the match nearly tied with a considerable amount, that we are losing because Abathur and Azmodan are garbage
This match had no supports, we lost because no one was focusing targets or randomly shooting the Johana
>playing during late night
this is the worst
you see some many shit plays
>towers of shit
>win teamfight and altar bot
>retreat behind out gate, no kills on either side
>tychus goes ham, charges through all the enemies and throws a grenade on the altar location
>DONT JUST LET THEM TAKE IT
shit son, i'd just alt f4 and never come back if i were him
Mind, the last two games I had, the 1st of the two, my Uther has been AFK for the whole game and since he was the solo support, it ended extremely badly
As for the 2nd of the game, we only had 1 bruiser (Arthas) versus 1 Bruiser(Sonya) and 1 Tank(Muradin). Even knowing this, said Arthas decided to build pure offense instead of tank since he was our only warrior
This is either karma or matchmaker being a bitch
>both teams have abathur and nova
>I am the nova
>walk up to their abathur

>our slug shoots their slug

>I'm still cloaked, he decides it was nothing and goes back to hatting.
>our abathur eventually kills him
>my hat disappears
>their coldsteel killed our slug
>start laughing, accidentally hit q, get focused by the fort, die
What's up with abathurs that have zero awareness?
>tfw top of charts in every fucking category
i cant believe falstead actually topped me 5k damage in that last teamfight.
He started planting some anti stealth mines after I've killed him three times. He never went to a different lane though and kept sitting under his fort
he planted then all on the path I used to kill him earlier so I just went the long way around and avoided his mines
Also, dropping a decoy in a random enemy aoe is the best.
especially if you didn't pick Double Bronze so the enemy has some reason to fall your bait
"omg that Condemn Joho used to blow up their minions hit Nova! FIRE EVERYTHING!"
it averaged out so well that our last pick almost 4k MMR shitter picked abathur instead of a support
we got stomped in 11 minutes, that sure was fun
he was a pro abathur though, so that was nice
You see the problem with that is if you take Titan Killer you miss out on Zealot Charge. Charge is what makes him god mode late game because it fixes his one problem. Ability to stick to people.
Maybe, if you have SM.
Instead of theory number crunching, how about you go try mode and hit the training dummy. AA > triple strike+charge only does 1300ish damage now, the bugged one was 2500ish
I'm not sure what he's getting at either but it sounds like he's saying you do a lot of damage with triple strike and seasoned marksman.
Yes newfriend, artanis has great damage provided you use his w each time it's off cooldown.
In order to help with that you take zealot charge.
The time you don't spend getting your ass kited around like a pansy, the more damage you'll be dealing.
Unless you're facing an all melee comp, titan killer will provide you with less damage oppurtunity than charge.
>not taking Target Purified for free aces if your team has good slows

>he doesn't overpower immediately after charging

is there anything more fucking annoying?
how fucking hard is it to do a fucking combo on the same target?

>Uther Lili and myself have to try to defend our fucking core from a 5 man team because hammer is afk sieging and nazeebo is off fucking around with the shrines
>lose in 10 minutes
That is a pretty terrible team. The only chance you guys had honestly was if you could protect Hammer and she could just fucking destroy the enemy team at objectives, though that's probably a long shot.
>randoms vs 5 man pubstomp

make sure you find an account link to use as a reference before you hit player level 5. You will get raynor and sylvanas for free.
You also need to get chogall soon, the event for getting him free is ending anytime now
it depends on the enemy ability to DPS, and your need to be primary tank.
if you're not with a Muradin or a Leoric, you probably don't need the massive DP. However, Artanis can get into a DPS race Diablo and win if you take follow through.
If you need the shield to proc, take all the talents you need for it. if you find yourself doing okay, and don't think it'll be necessary in the long road, try taking it, Artanis makes for a good burst assassin if you find yourself getting fucked by the matchmaking

Addons for Heroes of the Storm
Allowing addons for HotS has many benefits as seen in other games. Here are some of the possible addon categories.
GUI/Art addon: change the design of scoreboard or actionbar to something more interresting for those bored with the default.
Chat addon: filter certain sentence or words out from some channels avoiding spam and other bothersome messages you would rather never have seen. You could also translate words or sentences to another language or show emoticon picture instead of the text based smiley.
Combat addon: damage meter for the scoreboard, different cooldown counter for abilities or one that shows ult timer of ally/enemy team that you normally would have to use scoreboard to see.
Minigame addon: allowing content such as mini games which can be anything between a Tetris game or a guild system
Misc addon: showing stats on the screen such as how much dmg each ability gets with every level or mana/health gain or moving dps/fps/hps or such stats to a small window somewhere else. you could also make a radio addon or an addon that adds new voice/sentences to certain heroes.
>sales ends tomorrow
>no leoric skin and no fancy vulture, which were obviously dedicated to star wars
>being this greedy
>tfw nobody plays memes of the storm
Aww yeah, it's the cute manbearwolf week again
What a spastic enemy team that was
>retarded diablo can't do his combo while ganking somehow
>i land my stun anyway, get the kill
>he sends me a friend request
>Queue for Quick Match
>get paired with some cunt playing Abathur and another cunt playing Nova
>I'm the only tank
Every. Cunting. Time.
Fuck anyone who plays Abathur. He's a useless piece of shit outside of structured groups. Please fuck off and stop playing this useless cunt of a character. Please. I beg you. You know who you are.
Work harder. Better. Make faster. Stronger. Evolution never over.
When the fuck is Blizzard going to release pic related? I'm tired of all the Warcraftfaggotry we got recently. Also, if they release a Xel'Naga skin for Kerrigan people will get hurt.
I made this you senpais
It wasnt finished, but now source keeps crashing, so it is
>RAAAARGH I HATE YOU SO MUCH NEPHALIM BUT PLEASE SAVE ME AAAAARGH
literally the worst thing in all of Diablo 3
Nephalim seizing the power from Heaven and Hell when?
Nephalem a shit.
Eternal conflict when?
picked abathur in hl and nobody tried to talk me out of it. what's wrong with people?
I just started playing HoTs again since alpha.
Can anyone give me a tier list, i want to mombo jombo juggle with some CCer and Phat DPS.
My favorite heroes are Muradin Nova and Rexxar.
>Tfw no blademaster.
Tiers for quality or for what I enjoy? What I enjoy most is the following
Warrior - Artanis (dash and basic attack build)
Assassin - Nova (Burst DPS)
Specialist - Abathur (hat master)
Support - Kill me
OK, time to hear your bronzie ideas.
>How would you buff both Ults of your favorite character
Without making it OP
>How would you nerf both Ults of your most hated character
Without making it useless
Devouring Maw can also eat your summons increasing its damage dealt
Nydus network spawn hunter killers, roaches, and banelings every x seconds
Abathur's body stays where it is during ultimate evolution the ability ends if Abathur is stunned or killed
Bronzstrosity is already useless
>>How would you buff both Ults of your favorite character Without making it OP
halve Maelstrom's cooldown, make Ultralisk do more damage and have more health, but not shield you
>>How would you nerf both Ults of your most hated character Without making it useless
Viking Raid kills the Vikings if the ship dies but does more damage and the mortar has a longer range
Play Again shares the remaining health of the living Vikings across the dead ones instead of healing them all to full
>Play Again shares the remaining health of the living Vikings across the dead ones instead of healing them all to full
How would that work if you used it while your dudes are alive?
I don't really have a favorite, but...
>If no enemies are in range, Kharazim can dash between allies and heal them instead of doing nothing during 7 sided strike.
>Divine Palm has slightly larger range.
I also don't really have a least favorite either, so I'll go with the one most complained about...
>Orbital Strike reveals Nova on the map wherever she is for the duration of the attack (her restealth timer doesn't start until the attack ends)
>Triple Tap penetrates targets, but does less damage per target. If only one target is stuck, triple tap deals the normal amount of damage.
Nazeebo's ult you use it by the enemy because it's a damage ult, and you want to do damage to them. Play it again just revives the vikings so you can get value from it anywhere on the map.
>How would you buff both Ults of your favorite character
March of the Murlocs
-Instead of baby murlocs now you have adult ones with some random fancy weapons/shields/helmets etc
-Buff dmg to heroes and structures
-Murlocs are making hell a lot of a noize with their Grrrwrwwlrlrl, maybe even make this noize global so than on any spot of the map you can hear the march
-Decrease cooldown to make this a more viable ult
-Shark is always there for the animation, the lvl 20 talent just buffs the dmg as it is right now
>How would you nerf both Ults of your most hated character
Um, I kinda don't have any most hated characters. There are some annoying ones, but they are annoying due to their basic abilities and traits, not because of their ults.
>haven't played in months
>Tyrande almost at 60% WR
>fucking Diablo at 56%
>Thrall at 53%
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh what the fuuuuuuuck
Also Metzen fuck you Thrall is garbage you fucking cuck I knew Thrall would be good eventually just because you'd force it seriously fuck you
Tyrande is going to get assfucked with nerfs. It's insane. I FEEL THE COSMOS.
Also it honestly looks like Blizzard won't be happy until everyone has a shitty 49% win rate, so I imagine they'll just keep nerfing characters until that's the standard.
>now does splash damage with the autofire; 20% of the damage is applied to enemies near the target
>the boat slowly replenishes health over time
>applies the dash on all of them once it is finished casting?
>takes 0.5s longer to fire and is slightly more telegraphed
>now covers a slightly smaller range
>increase barrel duration by 1-2 seconds or increase speed
>increase SEF spirit damage or lower cd by ~20 seconds
>increase cd of phoenix by ~10 seconds
>pyro is shit enough as it is
It's because people bought so hard into the "Nova is bad xDD" meme that they don't actually play around the reasons that MAKE her bad. They just turn off their brain and assume Nova being bad means she can't do anything.
NOVA IS ONLY BAD IF YOU KNOW WHAT SHE DOES AND HOW TO STOP IT
PLEASE STOP STANDING AROUND AND LETTING HER SHOOT YOU IN THE DICK FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
She definitely should get a buff for a target that has 3 stacks when damaging that target. I don't know why that wasn't a thing already. She suffers on maps with bosses and immortal/plant as well as single target damage.
this, holy shit
every attack spent on an enemy with a full stack feels like such a complete waste
making her do bonus damage on fully stacked enemies would actually let her do some focused damage
>tfw the enemy is too stupid to check the feat screen before teamfights and assume I took March of the Bronze King
>they try to run
>E N T O M B
>WELCOME TO THE BONE ZONE
>WE'VE GOT SMASH AND DRAIN
If they didn't assume I took March then they would have ran in a fashion that prevents Entombing
Either they assumed I took March, or they knew I did and deliberately played like retards to get Entombed and killed.
Whichever benefit of the doubt you want to give them is fine by me.
Something like that happened to me earlier today
>The only one who died is Leoric
Yeah, something like that happened to me too
>Leoric tries to take advantage of that and entombs me
>My whole team turns back into him and he dies.
>Heal injured people and caduceus brings me to full health
Being a bronzie is fun, at least for me
