I find a bit odd that he will use Mana instead of Rage since he is from the Warrior-class (though Muradin is a Warrior too and also uses Mana), but still... He is probably one of the Heroes I'm most hyped about. I'm glad he'll be released in a few weeks.

I wonder if this was to give him a reason to go back to base, same for Muradin. With Rage as their resource and both having healing mechanics, they could sit in lane eternally.

Maybe this is their way of "balancing" them?

Makes sense... I was going to mention that Sonya has Rage and can heal, but her healing is nowhere as good as Muradin's.

Yeah, I did think about her, but she only heals when actually hitting something. They can passively heal if I remember right.

      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!
