That's really odd for them to put Cho-Gall at different level requirements. Does make sense to put Gall as the earlier head since they chose that route.

Yeah, I'd say you definitely need more awareness etc. to be able to play Cho properly. Gall can be played to a moderate level by just spamming the abilities.

I'm glad he's on rotation, haven't seen Cho'gall played for a long while now.

That's not because of lack of access... So many people have him because he was free. It's because he just isn't good in the meta. You get one clean pick on him in mid to late game and it's an ender because it counts as being down 2 heroes. His positioning as Cho has to be completely flawless because he has no jump moves to avoid lock down. Newer heroes have too much pop, you have li-ming, greymane, chromie, and Alarak since his release that can blow people up and get a good pick on him. Let alone a lot of the re-tooling to older heroes to keep up with the slow power creep that should happen in these games.

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea and he's a lot of fun if you have a good buddy to play with. He just has such terrible value.

I have seen a pro game where he was picked purely because of Auriel, not to say he's meta but still it's an interesting thought...

He's an awesome teaching hero at least. I used it to teach my girlfriend about positioning and when to dive/retreat. It actually helped a decent amount!

Cho'gall is absurdly good in Team Fights with Auriel. Overall he is one of the funniest characters to use, specially if you and your partner have good synergy to chain the skill shots.

However, I think Blizz should either give him a major rework, or tweak him so he becomes more viable in the meta.

I wish you could queue as Cho/Gall without having to get a friend to play with. In Quick Matches it would be fun.

You could allow players to tick a box that basically says, "if there is a Cho/Gall that needs someone, I'm happy to fill that spot."

      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.
