I honestly think they needed to add another stealth based character to the roster.  I know that the stealthies get a lot of hate, especially Nova, but they are a valid play style and can make or break a match.  Looking forward to seeing Samuro.

Predicting a mirror image nerf. That has such crazy lane push potential for an assassin. With any minion support it's essentially "increase all siege damage by 60% for 18 seconds". Same reason they removed and damage from Nova's decoy.
Curious to see how the talents work, I can see a really good crit hit build in the works.

HoTS actually deals with Stealth incredibly well, so I find myself really in favour of this. Dealing with crap like Shaco in LoL, where there is no indicator of his position in stealth is a pain in the ass (you can see smoke when he enters it, but when he's in it you're screwed). With enough awareness, you can completely lockdown stealthers.

      It's bad news for players that regurlarly go AFK during matches or die intentionally. Another banwave went out yesterday.
      Spyrian
      We’ve just issued a new round of account suspensions and bans for players who regularly go AFK, refuse to participate, or intentionally and repeatedly die during their Heroes of the Storm matches. 

      Today’s action was targeted at those whose in-game performance data clearly indicates a consistent lack of contribution to the majority of their matches. In order further confirm which accounts should be suspended or banned, we also review the data behind every one of these accounts by hand, as well as examine the volume and types of in-game reports these players have received. Through this three-point verification process, we are able to take regular and confident action against players who are intentionally harming the in-game experience for others.

      Going AFK, refusing to participate, and intentionally dying are behaviors that ruin the experience for everyone else in a match and undermine the spirit of competition that’s essential to Heroes of the Storm. Taking part in these actions will not be tolerated, and we will continue to suspend and ban players who do. We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot these negative behaviors in your matches, and encourage you to continue doing so.
      Thank you!

      The official spotlight for the upcoming Assassin Valeera Sanguinar was released today.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      For a time, the gladiator Valeera Sanguinar served dutifully as one of Varian Wrynn’s personal bodyguards. Now, her shadowy skills find her a natural fit within the secretive rogue order, the Uncrowned, in their fight against the Legion. A master of stealth combat, who is as quick as her daggers are deadly, Valeera is prepared to strike at the Nexus from the shadows as our newest melee assassin.
      Hopefully you like Valeera and we'll see you in the Nexus!

      Valeera's patch adds the Cursed Hollow Sandbox to the game and you can select the mode under "Custom Games". It gives you several cheats which impact the game. Some options are well-known from the game's Try Mode.
      Cheats
      Cheats can impact a match from the start until the very end. At any point during the game, you have access to the commands below.
      The first option is to "Share Cheats", which gives all players access to fiddle around with game settings. Toggle Minions for both teams On/Off. Reset Structures Toggle Tribute Spawning: On/Off Move Here: Teleports you wherever you want. Reset Talents: Resets all talents. Reset Cooldowns: Resets all cooldowns Set Team Level: You can separately set the Level of both teams from 1 to 30. Toggle Infinite Mana: Stops mana depleting. It can be adjusted for both teams separately. Set Damage Dealt: Set the damage you or the enemy team deals from 1 to 300%. Set Damage Taken: Set the damage your or the enemy team takes from 1 to 300%.
      What do you think about it? I'd love if we were able to set up our own custom brawls with modifiers.
