A news round-up featuring the Hell Billie mount, Connectivity Issues in Europe, Weekly Sale Items, Tweets and latest videos!

Introducing Hell Billie!

A new mount is joining the menagerie!

Beginning June 2, you will be rewarded the Hell Billie mount for any real-money purchase in the in-game shop. Hell Billie's arrival also marks the well-desired retirement of Billie the Kid (as seen in the picture above on the left). The mount was previously rewarded to every player that made a real-money purchase in the shop. Here's how Hell Billie looks like:

Fear not if you don't yet own Billie the Kid, the mount will be given away in addition to Hell Billie from Thursday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 14, 2016. After that, Hell Billie will be the only reward for making a real-money purchase.

Connectivity Issues Fixed

Users have been reporting high latency in the European region on reddit lately. The issue seems to have been fixed according to this thread.  Araxom has made several responses related to the lags.

Dustin Browder Tweets

Dustin was asked a question if there were any plans to make the role of support as healer bots any different, following player complaints.

Talking about unfinished features that are in the works are a nightmare of every game developer. Even Dustin admitted that he was talking about Arena.

And of course, Arena is far from complete yet, we still got no ETA.

^ Haha yeah same. Just to clarify, if you spend money from Thursday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 14, 2016, you get both Billie the Kid and Hell Billie mounts right? (If you don't already have Billie the Kid.)

Indeed, you will get both :), if you already own him, you will only get Hell Billie. After June 14, you will just get Hell Billie regardless of whether you own Billie the Kid or not. Hope this clears it up.

      Harvest the terror's seeds or watch them grow to become your ruin in this week's brawl!
      The weekly brawl is a best-of-three-Arena match with shuffle pick and the objective is to collect 100 seeds to win a round. All players start at level 10 and will be asked to pick a Heroic ability. No other talents are available. There's a small chance of all players being the same Hero. Complete three matches to earn a Loot Chest.

      This week's Heroes Brawl mode is Garden Arena: a best-of-three Arena match featuring the Garden Terror and its Shamblers. Gather seeds and overrun the enemies’ core with the power of nature!

      Rules:
      Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Arena. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Everyone will begin the round at level 10 and will be asked to choose a Heroic Ability. No other talents will be available. During each round, slay the enemy team’s Heroes and capture Seeds from the Garden Terror and its Shamblers. The first team to gather 100 Seeds wins the round! The first team to win two rounds will claim victory! Rewards:
      Complete two matches of Garden Arena to earn a Fall of King's Crest Chest! Find out more about the Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for this exciting new game mode.

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal 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).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓  
      Mid-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Arthas Dehaka (ban) Alarak Tracer (ban) Cassia↓  Azmodan Abathur Alexstrasza Blaze Imperius (new) Kerrigan   Falstad↑ Gul'dan Zarya Auriel Johanna Sonya↓ Maiev   Fenix↓ Junkrat   Brightwing Muradin Yrel Malthael   Greymane Kel'Thuzad    Kharazim Stitches (ban)   Ragnaros   Hanzo (ban) Li-Ming-   Li Li Varian   Thrall   Lunara Mephisto   Lt.

      Low-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer — Chen Gazlowe Valeera Valla Chromie Medivh (ban) Deckard↓    D.Va Murky     Probius         The Butcher            
      Situational picks (map, team composition, or counterpick)
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Cho'gall (ban) Leoric Illidan Nova — Cho'gall (ban) Tassadar Uther (ban) Tyrael Rexxar Xul Samuro     The Lost Vikings (ban)    
      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
