For the level 10 and 13 talents, Drakken Laser Drill and Relentless are apparently "situational" picks (as seen on the icons) but are listed under the "recommended" section in the explanations. It looks like it's because they're being discussed simultaneously with the recommended picks, but wouldn't separating them into their own sections be clearer and more consistent? smile.png

This is a remnant from our old way of writing guides, we'll have to update! Thanks for pointing it out.

You can activate Minigun "passively" sometimes I feel like it then does not trigger in hero fights?! how does this work? Only hit button infight?

When you press "D" MinigunMinigun activates. It does not activate passively. The only passive portion of the trait is Tychus' attack speed.

You should move dragonshrine to one of his better maps. His trait with the stacking ability allows him to get easily 15 seconds of extra minigun time by level 20 since hitting the dragonknight counts as hero hits.

This is true; I thought a lot about adding this as one of his better maps for this exact reason. However, if the enemy team has the Dragon that often, you have likely lost the game. Additionally, the extra MinigunMinigun duration from In the RhythmIn the Rhythm doesn't matter too much when you get punted away after activating it. Tychus is great while defending against the Dragonknight, but not all that special for obtaining one (which is usually the win condition for Dragon Shire). He is by no means poor for the map though; I do think he has a slight edge.

Guys the guide that you have for tychus A.T build could be improve by a lot for example , the lvl4 set of talents , why would you prefer to increase 0.5 of D In the RhythmIn the Rhythm, when you have  The Bigger They Are...The Bigger They Are... taking 4% of their total hp out, any tank who initiate would be force to retreat as soon as he joins the fight with that talent.

Lvl 7 talents, you went for the increase of the range on the grenade 50% QuarterbackQuarterback which is a totally viable talent to go with, but why would you do that when your homework in this build is punish the tanks and stay alive as long as you can, making Relentless SoldierRelentless Soldier,  the most viable option for this A.T role , remember that tychus is well focused once he starts making pressure on the enemy composition.

The rest of the talents are pretty good , they are situational Titan GrenadeTitan Grenade   definitely rocks but always keep in mind using any of the other 2 talents depending on the need.

Check this out and I'm not trying to be a disrespectful but to improved the website because I enjoy it a lot.

I think the choice between "In the Rhythm" and "The Bigger They Are..." is very map and team-comp dependent. On bigger, longer maps where you are likely to spend a lot of time stacking it up, ITR just completely shines as you often end up with double, triple, or more uptime on your trait. The bigger they are is insane against lower level tanks, but a lot of tanks have good ways to stay relevant at "low" health - a few even thrive there (artanis, dual wield varian, or johanna with "indestructible" come to mind). missing out on ITR also makes your trait much more susceptible to being countered by blinds, evasion effects, stuns, etc. since the fixed 3 second duration will generally barely outlast these effects.

 

Relentless soldier is a great talent and I pick it in probably half or more of my tychus games. I don't think it will ever be higher that situational though simply because it relies on the enemy team for effect. A lot of teams don't have excess stuns or roots, or won't want to focus tychus first, and in those cases this talent will just sit there doing nothing, whereas quarterback is always in play, especially with titan grenade at 16 (which is a must if you're taking The Bigger They Are...). That said, you are right that when it's needed, this talent is an absolute game changer and can get you out of some really tight jams (or buy your team the time it needs while you're being focused)

Tychus is always focused, always. He is way to dangerous to be ignored, every hero in the game is relevant at low health however a tank at low health is not half relevant as when they are full health.

All of the Talents you are suggesting are listed as situational; they are very good in some games. The Talents page goes into greater detail than the main page does, and will shed light on when to take those options over the recommended ones.

Just saw this, but thanks for the offer! At the moment, we've got a pretty talented team that work together well, but if we're ever on the lookout, we'll make sure to announce it :)

One small thing:

In the abilities page you mention that Overkill can be interrupted by knock-backs. This is not true anymore.

Following a 2015 change, semi-channeled abilities are not interrupted by knock-backs anymore, as the implicit stun is removed. This means that simple knock backs such as E.T.C.'s Face Melt and Lucio‘s Sound Wave cannot interrupt Overkill anymore.

Abilities such as Falstad's Mighty Gust do interrupt it because it is now explicitly stated that targets are stunned during the knock back.

Thanks for pointing this out! An update should come today or tomorrow, depending on your timezone.

      We present our ninth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Garrosh patch of August 2017.
      Our ninth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of August 2017 is here!
       
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Garrosh patch. The goal if of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame). Although tier listings are generally the product of balance, many factors come into play when discussing the relative perceived strengths of heroes, including player regions, maps, play style, skill level, and, of course, personal perception. As such, any tier list—including this very one—should never be interpreted as gospel, but rather, as a guide to better grasp what to expect with regards to typical drafting experiences. One useful application of such lists is to allow you know which heroes to look out for in terms of practice and counterplay, ultimately improving your knowledge of the game.
       
      Using the list
      As stated above, tier lists are easy to mistake for gospel. As new strategies are discovered and experimented with, so changes the perception of the relative strengths of each hero. Tier lists still prove to be useful as a snapshot of player expectations in terms of drafting. Although it is generally considered preferable to focus on high tier heroes (Prime and Core tiers), it is important to note that Heroes of the Storm's wild character and map designs make it so that any given hero's tier position is prone to fluctuate depending on the situation at hand.
      One classic example of such is that of Kerrigan on the Infernal Shrines map. Although we currently judge her to be a mid-tier hero, her drafting priority shoots up to first-pick or first-ban material on this specific map due to the nature of its objective. Certain heroes also synergise so well with each other that the sole fact of having the opportunity of drafting them together is generally enough to increase their potential. Tassadar and Tracer, for instance, are generally nightmarish to deal with for many. There are too many examples of these interactions to reasonably produce here, but we invite you to consult our guides to know exactly where and when each hero shines. The guides have been linked in the lists below for your convenience - just click any of the hero names to access them.
      A ↑ next to a hero's name means its tier list position has increased since the previous month whereas a ↓ means just the opposite. Additionally, a + or - sign indicates short-to-medium term predictions (which is to say, about a month) for tier increase(s) or decrease(s), respectively. These are often updated after significant balance patches and/or when clear trends are emerging.
      If you're newer to the game, also consider visiting our glossary for a comprehensive list of discrete Heroes of the Storm terms.
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak  Genji Uther - Stitches↑ Greymane↑ Tassadar↑     Malthael     Prime tier heroes are considered to be extremely strong in all situations, and show no obvious weakness. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most matches.
       
      Core Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Arthas Falstad Auriel Nazeebo Dehaka Gul'dan- Rehgar Sylvanas Diablo+ Li-Ming Stukov Xul↑ E.T.C.↑ The Butcher↑     Garrosh (new!) Valla     Sonya Zeratul     Varian (Tank)                       Core tier heroes are strong in a wide variety of situations and have few counter-picking possibility. They should form the core of your team, and be picked after Prime Tier heroes have been distributed.
       
      Viable Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Artanis Alarak Brightwing Abathur Chen Cassia↑ Kharazim Azmodan D.Va↓ Chromie Li Li Zagara+ Johanna↓ Jaina Lt. Morales Probius Leoric Kael'thas Lúcio   Muradin Lunara Malfurion↓   Tyrael Ragnaros Tyrande   Zarya↓ Samuro       Thrall↓       Tracer↑       Varian (Damage)-       Zul'jin             Viable tier heroes are generally well-rounded that have either fallen out of favour, or, inversely, are on the rise in popularity, due to the current Prime tier contenders.
       
      Niche Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Cho'gall Cho'gall - Gazlowe↓ Rexxar↓ Illidan   Medivh   Kerrigan↓   Murky   Nova   Sgt. Hammer   Raynor       Valeera↓       Tychus     Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They are generally picked to "round out" your team composition when your team composition is missing out on key components, such as a "jungler" (mercenary camps), a solo laner, or solid waveclear.
       
      Bottom Tier
      The Lost Vikings Bottom tier Heroes are deemed to be either considerably weaker than the majority of other Heroes, or much more challenging to play properly. Although they may situationally shine, these Heroes are generally avoided by most players.
       
      Metagame assessment
      Greetings. Regulars may have noticed that the changes featured in this month's list have been more aggressive than usual. In essence, I feel like a clear metagame is finally begin to emerge after a slew of important changes, making it easier for me to pinpoint notable trends. And so, the result is a volatile tier list that should be extremely stable next month. Shall we begin?
      I like Garrosh quite a bit, and I can't help but feel that the combined novelty and high skill cap skew his win rates towards the bottom of the roster. Case in point: his Master level win rates are nearly 12% higher than his Bronze level win rates. This is a case of Medivh all over again; however, whereas both Garrosh and Medivh did start at 30-something-percent win rates, Garrosh has been steadily climbing over the week. Both Diablo and Stitches are currently very popular picks, and Garrosh provides similar utility through his Groundbreaker + Wrecking Ball combo. Talents to watch out for are undoubtedly Warbreaker (reduced cooldown on Groundbreaker, level 1) and Intimidation (40% reduced attack speed on targets hit by Groundbreaker, level 7), which allow Garrosh to neuter basic attack reliant heroes much earlier than other heroes can. Into the Fray (can use Wrecking Ball on allies once every 30 seconds, level 7) is also an interesting one as it gives Garrosh his own version of Cleanse and  the ability to say 'hey, you're mispositioned, stop it', which should come in handy whenever an ally is, well, not standing where they should be. It also breaks Lamb to the Slaughter on top of a few other nasty heroic abilities, which is great.
      Stitches has finally ascended to godhood, and although I was slow to give him a seat in the core tier, repeated high level hero league bans and a high amount of tournament play speak for themselves. As stated last month, the Slam build remains an easy way of topping the damage charts all while being difficult to kill. Gorge has also seen an upsurge in popularity, and particularly on maps where combat tends to happen close by fortifications, such as Dragon Shire, Tomb of the Spider Queen, Towers of Doom, et cetera. Couple this with Falstad's Mighty Gust, and you have a game winning combo that isn't all that difficult to pull off.
      I don't have much to say about Greymane that isn't self-obvious; Cursed Bullet is a great choice in a meta where healthy tanks are popular, though Go for the Throat is also re-emerging for blowup team compositions, thanks to its reliable damage and gap closing feature, on top of its ability to reset.
      To shoehorn last month's tier list again, I made a snarky comment about Tassadar always being either too strong or too weak. Right now, he enables two borderline heroes–Illidan and Tracer–on top of providing flexible heroic ability choices for both more defensive and blowout team compositions. His versatility just makes him never feel like a bad pick, and Oracle keeps the Zeratuls at bay as a bonus.
      E.T.C. is this month's surprise as players sift through forgotten heroes to solo tank, provide potential mapwide mobility through Stage Dive, and just generally provide reliable crowd control. You'll note a sore lack of interruption from a lot of high tier picks as well, making Mosh Pit about as good as it'll get.
      We haven't seen The Butcher be more than a one trick for nearly two years now, but the brute is back in force, thanks for buffs several players have misinterpreted as nerfs. I suspect, however, that some of his newfound success may be due to players having some difficulty adapting to his new gank-heavy playstyle and generally counterpicking him. Shall the Brightwings, Cassias, and Li Lis of the world rise up to the challenge?
      Xul has continued to perform well, and although he is the second least popular core tier hero (right behind Zeratul), he will keep on being effective on Blackheart's Bay, Dragon Shire, Gardens of Terror, Infernal Shrines, and Towers of Doom simply due to the importance of having a strong split pusher on these maps. Just make sure you go for Skeletal Mages, which tend to block a lot of those abilities strong tanks currently rely upon to get picks, on top of being generally disruptive.
