Hi!

What is going on, boys and grils? It is Krystian a.k.a. Kolosalus here. I have been posting gaming videos on YouTube for quite a while now, but only recently I started to become more serious about it all. I do now like to entertain as well as teach people something new with my videos.

 

I have been posting videos on Heroes of the Storm(also others but HotS is my main) for few months now and I need your guys' help! I need your support and feedback on my videos. I need you guys and gals to head on over to my channel and check out my informative gameplays with some nice funny editing built into them.

 

I'm looking to share something new or entertaining with you guys every time I post a video. Be it an unconventional build or a very well settled one but exactly explain strengths and weaknesses as well as explaining how to play or apply it to different situations.

 

I will keep this thread updated with my latest content so put it into your bookmarks or go to my channel and stay tuned and hyped for much more of my videos. See you there!

 

Here is my latest video on my own Kael'thas' Verdant Spheres Build. Head on over, give it a watch , drop a like, subscribe and leave some feedback!

Here is my new video with a brand new take on Li-Ming with her latest changes. Her Arcane Orb feels much worse untalented but can do some work while being specced for. Enjoy!

After going over a lot of game's assassins I decided to give a try to one of the eldest heroes in the game, Lili. Her Water Dragon heroic has been buffed and I was wandering just how much! Enjoy!

Artanis has finally received some buffs to his utility in the team fight scenario. With Zealot Charge a part of his base kit and buffed shield talents, he proves to be a better solo warrior than ever. I also brought my beautiful girlfriend and my partners from DodgeRollGames to have some fun with me.

Enjoy!

Tracer has come to the Nexus as the first character from the Overwatch universe! I gotta tell you blizzard needs to get their balancing right because we have another really strong hero on our hands. Let's give her a try.

Falstad has finally received some love from Blizzard over last few patches(excluding the Might Gust cooldown nerf) and he has 3 main build floating around (one of them is mine!). Today we are going to showcase the Hammerang build with some awesome fail editing starting at 12:41 :D Enjoy!

Stitches hasn't changes all that much recently but he stands his ground in the meta relentlessly. Today I wanted to build a little different Stitches then the one we are used to. Can you guess what is it going to be?

After lots of hours put into Dehaka, I found out that he is just what every warrior needs in a competitive match. After specing for certain talents I'm able to clear lanes, provide crowd control and navigate around the map flawlessly. Guess what, I share that build with you today!

If you are very confident in your ability to land skill shots and provide the friendlies with plenty of time to unload their burst, I have created this build just for you. It provides all of the above while staying viable and useful.

It is a little late but here is my theorycraft and overview of the new mage in the Nexus, Chromie. She is a very long range burst mage and proves to be a very methodical hero. I think it is worth watching, as my approach proves to be much different than any other players... Hope you'll enjoy!

Finally, Chromie has been released onto the live servers and I have already spent a lot of time with her. I feel like I have gotten good with her and found one of the better, if not the best, build available for her. She is tricky and her damage is unreliable... this build tries to alleviate that problem while still pumping a lot of damage out.

Anub'arak Solo Battle Bug
After the latest reworks, it is the right thing to say that Anub'arak is at least interesting. He definitely be a pest for the enemy team with all of his crowd control but also with the right talents he can successfully peel for the front line. In this video I try to show off my tank build for Anub'arak and I think I'm pretty successful.

Falstad Kolosalus F*cking Lightning Build V2.0
After the latest patch, Falstad has received a little rework making my Lightning Rod build much more viable. It is a more attractive choice now too as the Zero Stress has been 100% removed from the game and it is very good against 100% dive teams, which are widely popular now.

Falstad Ready, Steady, Burst!
Talents on Falstad have been swapped around talent tiers and reworked in order to get his mage and auto attack builds on par with each other. The changes actually brought nerfs but also buffs to the mage build by making some talents more viable. Today we take a look at the Boomerang build once again to see what the changes bring.

Arthas Back to His Throne?
The Lich King has received a lot of changes in the latest patch, making him much more viable. Few different builds popped up but the one offering the most survivability and "surprise" damage turned out to be the Death Coil build. Buckle up cause it is going to be a bumpy ride!

Falstad A Little More Stressful
As the Zero Stress build has been killed with the removal of First Aid, there is a new breed of auto attack set on the horizon... and it proves to be suprisingly... Well see it for yourself! Let's Fly!

Anub'arak The Lord of Beetles
We have already explored what a full tank Anub'arak build can do for him, but today I decided to take a look at a different one. We take a trip down the line of time and experiment with his good old Beetle build, which fun fact, was also buffed in the latest patch. Wait, is that a bug under your pillow?! :D

      We present our tenth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Kel'Thuzad patch of September 2017.
      Our tenth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of September 2017 is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Kel'Thuzad 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 low-to-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 - Arthas↑ Greymane Tassadar   Dehaka↑ Malthael     Stitches-               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 Diablo Falstad Auriel Nazeebo E.T.C. Jaina↑ Rehgar Sylvanas Garrosh Li-Ming Stukov Xul Leoric↑- Valla Malfurion↑   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 Murky↑ Johanna Gul'dan↓ Lt. Morales+? Probius Muradin+ Illidan↑ Lúcio Zagara Tyrael Kael'thas Tyrande+   Zarya Lunara       Ragnaros       The Butcher↓       Tracer       Varian (Damage)       Zul'jin       Kel'Thuzad (new!)     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 Kerrigan   Medivh   Nova   Sgt. Hammer   Raynor       Samuro↓       Valeera       Thrall↓       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
      Kel'Thuzad is excessively powerful under perfect conditions, but is kept in check by the numerous top tier heroes that are either too mobile to reliably hit with Chains of Kel'Thuzad or too resilient to burst down. In this regard, he fits well within Blizzard's recent obsession with making heroes have their own little niche and whatnot. He's doing really fine, sitting at a very reasonable 48%-something w/l ratio, but try to late- or last-pick him when Genji and Tracer and the likes aren't around to make your existence a living hell. I expect him to become better over time as players themselves become  better at picking him appropriately and when the typical hype finally dies down. And don't end up having to solo lane if you like completing Master of the Cold Dark.
      Self-sustain bruiser-like tanks are the hot thing nowadays. With a metagame that either tries to outsustain the other with two supports, or empower Genji-Greymane-Illidan-Malthael-Tracer-Valla-or-so, surviving a lot while outputting a reasonable amount of sustained damage is great. That's Arthas and Dehaka, right now. A bit ago, Anub'arak and Stitches had their turn, but I expect them to go down in popularity.
      Both Jaina and Leoric got significant buffs through their reworks. Jaina is just objectively better, with Frostbite providing Ice Block by level 8-12 rather than 20, and Summon Water Elemental getting its cooldown shaved by a massive 20 seconds. Leoric is more of a sidegrade, but he's exceptional at dealing with popular tanks, has neat waveclear, and can mess with combos with Omnious Wraith. And, of course, March of the Black King was buffed nicely as well to give him some more burst survivability and combo potential.
      I'm holding judgement about Chromie, but I expect she might be better than she was, and I already considered her borderline Core tier material. Of course, her new Sand Blast design will make it so that better players will do better than before with her, and worse players will do worse, so we're likely to see more fringe cases.
      The Butcher got a pretty big nerf. The hype train was short lived, but, in the end, this is probably for the best.
      Gul'dan, Samuro, and Thrall are simply falling out of meta; being a caster without baseline crowd control or an immobile melee assassin is pretty hard nowadays. I still think Gul'dan is in a great place on Braxis Holdout, though the resurgence of Jaina and the... uh, more of Chromie might push him off a bit.
      I wish I had a bit more to say, but besides the latest reworks, not that much has changed. I will underline, however, that these reworks have been solid. I didn't mention anything about Lt. Morales, but I do think she's better off than before; we'll need a bit more data to assess whether I'll give her a tier.

      Thanks for reading!

      Redditor Spazzo965 datamined a bunch of changes coming to the game in the latest patch, ranging from Junkrat's release date to new voice chat icons.
      Datamining
      Ana and the patch should go live on September 26. D.Va the Destroyer skin should be available on October 3 (Splash Screen). You can try out the skin on PTR, just type battlenet://heroes/skin/98/DVatheDestroyer into chat and click the link. Junkrat is due for release on October 27. Voice chat is coming soon. New icons have been found in the latest version of the client. (Source, Credits: r/ahli). You can view Spazzo's screenshot of game files here. Undocumented Changes
      Auriel's Energized Cord increases the amount of energy she gains from attacking enemy Heroes by 115% (up from 110%). Mana cost of Malfurion's Regrowth has been reduced to 40 (down from 45). Many abilities now reveal the area where they hit, for example Kel'Thuzad's Shadow Fissure. Stacking effect markers have been added to many abilities, e.g. Valla's Manticore (Image), Murky's Slime. They are only visible to the Hero causing them, so enemies or teammates won't be able to see that Kharazim's next hit will cause his trait to proc. A list of all Heroes can be found here.
