Reddit is full of whine and Samuro will be nerfed next week! At least Weekly Sales for next week may cheer up a little.
Hotslogs is reporting a 66.9% win rate, with the next Hero Sgt. Hammer being at 55% (-11.9%). You can see Samuro on both teams in Quick Match and he gets banned in Hero League all the time. Even though he won't be playable at BlizzCon, he is simply overtuned at the moment. This is the Heroes of the Storm alphabet!
Reddit has been full of whine! Posts range from a call to action to nerf Samuro at once to efficient ways of countering. Now seriously here are some real counterpicks. Some philosophraptors even claim that not damage, but Samuro's survivability is what makes him overpowered! If that wasn't enough to make you entertained, what if it's just the bad players and Samuro isn't really OP?
And the winner is...
We totally hear you all on this and we have been in game with you and experiencing it ourselves. Our goal is to release something for Samuro (along with some bug and stability fixes, some of which are causing his win rate to inflate as well) next week.
As an early JFYI we do not have plans to adjust balance for any other heroes in this patch, as we want our pro players to have a place to play while they're displaced from their regions visiting BlizzCon (live) and things look pretty good at the moment.
Weekly Sales: October 25 - November 1

The behind-the-scenes video series continues with Samuro and we'll get to know some interesting facts about the Hero.
Samwise Didier, who's also Samuro's voice actor, reveals unknown facts about his alter ego. Samuro was formerly planned to be a Dungeons & Dragons Hero called Grumok the Wanderer. This is also the first time an orc uses the word "dude". Samwise says Samuro was the first character design for Heroes of the Stormm but the team had redesigned him three or four times and what we see now is the most polished version of the Hero.
Actually, when I first heard his voice he instantly reminded me of South Park's Mr.Kim!
