Denial Esports announce that they will be parting ways with the Heroes of the Storm team. Read more details after the break

After a brief 4 month period, both the team and the organization have come to mutual terms to terminate the contract. The team will stick together going into the Heroes of the Storm Global Circuit. Denial Esports will move away from Heroes of the Storm for the foreseeable future.

Let's revisit their path with us!

When we entered Heroes Of The Storm in July, we had a great outlook and a really great team. In their first qualifier for Blizzcon the team would fail to get out of group stage of the qualifiers; after only winning one game in their group. The team was heart broken, but they would regather and bring in iDream in place of Prismaticisim. 

Fast forward to the 2nd qualifier; where the team would be a force to reckoned with. They 2-0 their group without dropping a map and sweep Astral Authority (Now Gust or Bust) 3-0. Then came the nail biter that was Grand Finals vs Murloc Geniuses (Now Astral Authority) that went down to the final Game 5 decider on Blackheart's Bay, where they lost unfortunately. As a tie breaker the team would now have to focus on Gale Force Esports; showing their fierce spirit they went on to win 2-0, and securing themselves a spot at Blizzcon.

Their 2nd seeding going into Blizzcon put them in Group A of Group Stage 1 with the likes of MVP Black, Burning Rage, and Reborn. Dropping only a set to MVP Black, and winning 2-0 against Burning Rage and Reborn, the team found themselves seeded in a very dangerous and powerful group. Their first immediate opponent was Ballistix the winner of the 2016 Heroes of the Storm Fall Global Championship, unable to find their tempo the team lost the series 0-2. After a weeks break they found themselves facing off against ZeroPanda, and the team lost 2-0. They exited the 2016 Heroes of the Storm Fall Global Championship in 7th/8th Place. They would go on to make one last roster change with us replacing Glaurung with McIntyre, and brought in Zoia as their manager.

From all of us here at Denial Esports, we wish them the best of luck in the Heroes of the Storm Global Circuit, and we know they will do their best.

Good guys (two of them are ex-teammates of mine!), but their roster hasn't found a very stable home ever since the C9 days. Sad-sad.

Was super surprised to see this. I remember writing the news to announce Denial picking up a HoTS team not that long ago, so was a bit of a shock to see it dropped so quickly!

      A new in-development video previews Valeera's abilities, several new skins and three mounts!
      Blizzard has released a new in-development video on the Heroes of the Storm YouTube channel. Earlier today, they teased with Thistle Tea on Twitter. Maybe Valeera will use Energy as a resource and Sinister Strike will generate combo points. Eviscerate would deal damage based on the number of combo points she has.
      Valeera Abilities
      She seems to be a faithful copy of WoW's assassination rogue. Here are her abilities based on WoW tooltips to give you a better idea of her kit.
      [D] -  Vanish (Trait)
      [Q] - Sinister Strike
      [W] - Blade Flurry
      [E] - Eviscerate
      [R1] - Smoke Bomb
      R2 - Cloak of Shadows
      Valeera also comes with a "Demon Hunter" skin that will be part of a bundle. The skin has themed abilities.
      New Skins
      Master Valeera Demon Hunter Valeera Lunar Li-Ming Monkey King Samuro New Mounts
      Felsaber

      Nimbus Cloud

      Lunar Rooster

      Screenshots were taken from the in-development video below.

      Blizzard announced on Twitter that Valeera arrives on Public Test Realm tomorrow. 
      Zul'jin got released without testing, but Valeera is hitting PTR soon and she will probably go live the week after. We'll be adding her abilities and talents once they become available. Remember, if you purchase a Hero on PTR, it will automatically unlock for the region of your choice when the patch goes live.

      After the free Hero weekend, the standard rotation returns with 10 new Heroes that have been selected for gameplay, it's weird that it matches the rotation that Blizzard posted last week, but they decided to change last week's rotation on short notice.
      Free-to-Play Hero Rotation: January 17 - 24, 2017
      Clicking on a Hero name will take you to the corresponding build guide.
