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.

      Next week, Ragnaros will hit test servers. It's likely there will also be a balance update. Trikslyr wrote on reddit that a new balance Q/A is scheduled for December 6 and will last roughly 1.5 hours.
      Trikslyr
      BlizzCon has come and gone, and as we move forward, we’d like to touch base with the community in regards to Heroes of the Storm’s Balance! We’ll be hosting a Q&A on Tuesday, December 6th at 1:30 p.m. PST right here in /r/HeroesoftheStorm, and the following game designers will be here tackle your questions about upholding balance in the Nexus:
      /u/Blizz_Daybringer – Brett Crawford (Balance Designer) /u/BlizzCooper – Matt Cooper (Lead Balance Designer) /u/BlizzNeyman – Alex Neyman (Balance Designer) /u/BlizzAZJackson – Adam Jackson (Balance Designer) /u/BlizzClaudio – Claudio Gentilini (Producer) /u/Blizz_AKlontzas - Alexander Klontzas (Producer) The Q&A will last roughly 1.5 hours, so make sure to post your questions about game balance and live updates in the thread we’ll be creating on the morning of December 6th. We look forward to seeing you there!
      Please note: We’ll also be asking players from non-English speaking communities to partake in the Q&A by submitting their questions to the Community Managers representing their regions. As such, you might see a few Blizzard Community Managers posting questions (in English) on behalf of their communities during the Q&A. Feel free to upvote those questions if you’d like to see answers to them.

      The last balance update dates back to November 15 when Varian was released. We've seen some hotfixes on November 21. My wild guess would be balance update next week and Ragnaros live the week after. Reworked Haunted Mines should be back too.

      The Nexus Challenge has been introduced in mid-November and is here to stay until January 4, 2017. It offers quite interesting Heroes that are a beneficial addition to your roster, a 31-day Stimpack and even more rewards if you're into Overwatch.
      If you feel like it's taking too long to complete the 30 games then you're doing it wrong! Most of this is common sense, but you can easily finish it in several hours, because AI games with Friends count towards the 30 game requirement.
      First, join an in-game chat, such as /lfg or /reddit. It makes looking for other people who also want to complete the objective much easier. The easiest method is to complete 30 games with AI set to Beginner with 4 other players. You can completely ignore objectives and all players should focus on pushing a single lane together. This is called AI rush and my games usually take no more than 5-6 minutes before we destroy the enemy core.  I've been even able to complete a game in 4:40.
      Tips
      If you're joining a random group, don't forget to right-click a player's portrait and add him as a friend. I usually do this with every group member, because sometimes a single person doesn't confirm it. Don't start the game by clicking "Ready" unless at least one player has accepted your friend request or the next game played won't count toward the Nexus Challenge requirement. We've got guides ready for all the Heroes you get from the challenge Auriel Greymane Kerrigan Li-Ming Zarya Ideal compositions for speed runs, should include Sylvanas (to disable structures), Auriel (no mana dependency), Zarya or Tassadar for shields etc. (thanks to @Krazyito for pointing out).
