Heroes of the Storm Tychus

18 posts in this topic

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 :)

      We present our third Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Lúcio patch of Febuary 2017.
      Our third Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of Febuary 2017 has arrived!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Lúcio 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.
      If you're newer to the game, also consider visiting our glossary for a comprehensive list of discrete Heroes of the Storm terms.
      New this month!
      As per usual, a big 'thank you' to everyone who contributed to last month's list. Starting this month, I'll be giving bits of insight on some of the more notable tier changes.  You may note that this list features not one, but two new heroes! This is a small side effect of waiting around the middle of any given month to update this list. As a reminder, since last month, the number of arrows next to individual hero names represents the number of tiers they have gone up or down from. Refer to the last section for this.
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Artanis Ragnaros Malfurion - Varian (Tank)↑       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 Dehaka Falstad Brightwing Murky↑↑↑ Diablo↓ Gul'dan Lúcio (New) Nazeebo E.T.C. Jaina Rehgar↓ Sylvanas Johanna Li-Ming     Sonya↑↑ Samuro     Zarya Thrall↓       Tychus       Valla     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 Anub'arak Alarak↓ Auriel - Arthas Chromie Kharazim   Chen Greymane↑ Lt. Morales   Leoric↑ Kael'thas↓ Tassadar↑   Muradin↓ Kerrigan     Rexxar↑ Lunara     Tyrael Raynor       Valeera (New)       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 Li Li Abathur   Illidan Tyrande Azmodan   Nova Uther Gazlowe Stitches The Butcher   Medivh   Tracer   Sgt. Hammer       The Lost Vikings       Xul       Zagara 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
      - 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.
       
      Monthly metagame assessment
      If I could describe the last month and a half's metagame with one word, it would probably be nothing, because I'm currently being chain-stunned and can't take any action.
      Support heroes without access to Cleanse certainly struggle, which is why I'm skeptical about putting Lúcio, the latest addition to the cast, anywhere above the Core tier, despite solid win rates I expect will soon go down as people figure out how to better deal with him (i.e. stop chasing him). It should be noted that after level 16, his win rates jump up dramatically, thanks to Rejuvenêscia being on the very powerful side of things. If someone else can handle crowd control, I'm inclined to see him as a top tier hero.
      The Cleanse point is further exacerbated by Murky's outrageous newfound dominance, with Octo-Grab being the ultimate (or should I say, Heroic) stun button, earning him a steep 3-tier promotion. Although his recent success may even justify a Prime tier position, I'll play this one conservatively and allow players to figure out just how to counter the murloc, who hasn't seen any serious play in nearly two years. Core tier it is, but he's certainly on the watch list for an impending promotion if things don't go as planned.
      Valeera also possesses her own baked-in powerful stunning effect in the form of Cheap Shot. This is particularly relevant due to the most recent buffs that will certainly cause her to rise in popularity and in effectiveness, in spite of Cheap Shot itself being nerfed by some 0.25 seconds. Although on the lower end of the win rates spectrum, I suspect she falls into the Medivh category of high potential, difficult to master heroes. Some of her counters (Protection Varian, notably) are currently very popular, making it difficult to justify anything above Viable tier.
      While we're on the subject of Protection Varian, it would seem that the buffs to Parry-related talents and the recent shuffling of his utility (on top of the Taunt buffs) have finally caught up to the average player, as thousands have begun to grasp the advanced concept of following up and attacking stationary targets. This goes to show that a dismal early game presence can be made up by a strong, meta-defining heroic ability.
      In response to this new Prime tier contender, two of the most popular tanks have begun to slowly disappear, with Diablo and Muradin each taking a tier hit. If Diablo has been the target of some very recent nerfs, on top of players figuring out his one-trick-pony-esque playstyle, Muradin's skillshot-based stun (in the form of Storm Bolt) can't seem to find a place in a highly point-click oriented metagame. Both heroes are still strong, but not nearly as contested as they were before.
      Alarak and Thrall are two heroes that are also suffering in this meta. Both are without instant gap closers to punish mispositioning or get out of trouble or burst damage to effectively follow up on crowd control. While Thrall remains a strong solo laner, Alarak certainly is the one that suffers most as of lately.

      Sonya has recently seen some very nice buff, and, unlike the two former examples, is rather resilient to this crowd control heavy meta. She can even decide to partake to it with Leap, should you feel that the damage and survivability of Wrath of the Berserker are unneeded.
      Finally, Greymane, Rexxar, and Tassadar all saw small or big revisions to some of their talents and abilities, and it has done much needed good to their state. Greymane is particularly interesting in his newfound ability to threaten tanks through Cursed Bullet, something that was once reserved to Tychus.  If the general public has yet to adopt the wolf, it has slowly started to adopt the bear: Rexxar's win rates are going through the roof, and he's seeing more and more play, and particularly on maps that require holding specific objectives. As for Tassadar, his role as a "secondary healer" has been solidified with a much needed damage potential increase, in the form of Archon and consistent slowing effects.

      Our guide section has been updated with the Lucio Build Guide. Are you ready to drop the bass?
      It offers two ways of building Lucio:
      Reverse Amp Build The emphasis is put on AoE damage and Movement Speed slow. Good if you're playing as a secondary Support. Sound Barrier Build Focuses on Lucio's defensive capabilities. Feedback and comments are always welcome and can be submitted here.
