Heroes of the Storm Glossary

Recommended Posts

what is carry, caries? this term is not yet included in the glossary 

 

Carry is a late-game hero. Carries are usually weak in the early-game, but get strong in the late-game. This is why having too many carries is bad because you will get behind in the early game.

There are no carries in Heroes of the Storm, so having it in the glossary would be at best nonsensical, and at worst misleading. Granted, certain heroes do become relatively stronger as the game progresses, neither the game nor the characters are designed with the ability to  "carry" in the traditional sense of the term. Stick to playing as a team - you'll find more success than trying to single handedly trying to turn a game with your 1337 Illidank moverinos.

I can't seem to find "Invulnerable" in the glossary. Where can I find it?

From what I found, Invulnerable means that you are immune to damage and CC. It's like statis, but you're able to move.

More than that; invulnerable means immune to all hostile effects and their application (which includes damage over time, silence, etc., on top of crowd control and damage). Invulnerability effects also remove such effects currently active the target, making it a pseudo-cleansing mechanic.

meta?

everyone takes for granted that meta isn't really an English word. everyone keeps using it, and I don't fully understand what it means.

Meta in HotS context usually stands for "Most effective tactics available" and is often used in place of "flavour of the month" - basically meta says what is strong and popular in the game right now.

This topic should be pinned.

It was decided not to pin the thread, but rather create another thread linking to the Glossary and this thread. Thanks for pointing it out!

So would slang like oom (- out of Mana ) not be included here? Also is there a term for defeating a camp but capturing it when optimal ( when objective starts etc etc )

This is correct. The original post is incorrect.

Committing: The concept of the performing any given task without hesitation or withdrawal, irregardless of the consequences.

 

"Irregardless" is not a word.

Irregardless is a word with the same meaning as regardless.

"Irregardless was popularized in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its increasingly widespread spoken use called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however." from Merriam Webster. They also made an article that addresses the word.
