Axolotl has a 100% accuracy predicting new Nexus additions! Which Heroes will be released next?

There's a guy on 4chan who goes by the name Axolotl. He has been predicting every single Hero, Skin and Mount release thus far. What's more is that he wrote about "Volleyball Li-Ming", Gul'dan and Auriel on May 12, 2016. They were all announced along with the mounts in the in-development video four days ago.

Which Heroes are coming?

The last thread from Axolotl dates back from May 12, this is what he had to say.

Heroes

  • Gul'dan
    • Released somewhere around movie release.
    • His main trait is sacrificing life to do extra damage (Life Tap).
  • Auriel
    • Diablo III Angel with a resurrect ally ability
  • Varian
    • A typical World of Warcraft warrior build with abilities such as Charge, Taunt and Cleanse.
  • Samuro
    • Blademaster with Stealth (similar to Nova & Zeratul)

Skins

  • Volleyball Li-Ming
  • Mystic Kingdom Arthas
  • Mechalord Gazlowe

Mounts

  • Red Hare, Gyrocopter

Maps

Two Starcraft II maps are currently being worked on:

  • Braxis Holdout
    • Take objectives to send Zerg Swarm
  • Warhead Junction
    • Collect nuclear power items to send nukes.

On April 12, he accurately predicted Gul'dan's abilities. According to the said post, Blizzard seems to be working on a new Hero type, unknown at this time.

Other Heroes being worked on, but not released anytime soon include:

  • Shandris
  • Valerian
  • Varimathras
  • Ragnaros
  • Mengsk
  • Maiev
  • Imperius
  • Gromm
  • Garrosh
  • Brann
  • Baal
  • Alleria
  • Deckard Cain
  • Rock'n'roll Racer
  • Selendis
  • Stukov
  • Vashj
  • Tosh
  • Moira
  • Belial
  • Deathwing
  • Ghom
  • Cydaea
  • Zul'jin
  • Zarya
  • Aidan

Axolotl posted on November 7, 2015 the next three Heroes would be Greymane, Lunara and Cho'gall, who he specified as a two-player Hero. This was done just hours before the official revelation on the Heroes of the Storm panel on Day 2. The same day he said that the Diablo II Necromancer (Xul) would be coming soon. Things are getting even more crazy, because he was able to predict Chromie's release 6 months prior to her release on May 17, 2016. So, if you're looking to know what Hero will be released soon, just keep checking his post updates here. He posts quite regularly to keep players up to date.

Although it would be pretty sick if he actually guessed them, there is no way that he actually just guessed them. He must have access to Blizzard HQ or something XD

Maybe it's just a dev trolling, gone wild :)

I would absolutely love to see Baal or Mephisto. It would be cool if Meph was some kind of evil support hero... I would be surprised if they never make it into the game.

Well a 100% accuracy predicting Heroes months ahead of their actual release sounds pretty solid to me.

I'd love to see Cydaea or Belial.

Apart from that I have a feeling there is an incoming Starcraft event planned (such as the Eternal Conflict was for Diablo) and we'll see Starcraft maps released probably with some Heroes from the Starcraft universe.

      We present our fifth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Genji patch of April 2017.
      Our fifth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of April 2017 is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Genji 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.
      Additionally, a + or - sign (or several of them) indicates short-to-medium term predictions (which is to say, about a month) for tier increase(s) or decrease(s), respectively. These may be updated after significant balance patches and/or when clear trends are emerging.
       
      Prime Tier
      - 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 Anub'arak Falstad Lúcio↓ Nazeebo Arthas Gul'dan Malfurion↓ Sylvanas Dehaka Li-Ming Rehgar Probius↑↑ Diablo Ragnaros↓ Uther↑↑   Artanis↓ Samuro     Johanna Thrall     Sonya Valla     Varian (Tank) Zeratul     Zarya       Muradin↑       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 Chen Alarak Auriel Azmodan↑ E.T.C.↓ Chromie Brightwing↓ Gazlowe Leoric Genji (new) Kharazim   Rexxar Greymane Li Li↑      Jaina↓ Lt. Morales     Kael'thas Tassadar↓     Kerrigan       Lunara       Raynor       The Butcher↑       Valeera       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 Cassia (new) Tyrande+ Abathur Stitches Cho'gall   Medivh Tyrael Illidan   Murky   Nova   Sgt. Hammer   Tracer   The Lost Vikings   Tychus   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
      It seems I'll have to remove two tiers for our next tier list because the game is probably in the most balanced state it's ever been. Here's to hoping it'll last because such states are great for experimenting with team compositions without feeling like you're missing out on picking or banning that one overpowered guy. What might be the cause of such a state, though? On one hand Blizzard has been (relatively) steady with the nerfs. On the other hand - and I feel this is the most important reason here - there has been an overload of e-sports, notably with HGC, to teach players how to draft.

      There isn't all that much to say today, so I'll go over the new heroes and some of the more notable bounces. Cassia's a good pick against melee-assassin-heavy team compositions, especially if your team is running their own blinding effects for that extra synergy, but she doesn't really fit in a meta that's looking to be defined by warriors and supports. This is mostly due to her limited sustained damage and keen vulnerability to crowd control. Niche tier.
      Genji's looking balanced to me, though he is very difficult to play well, and tends to be quite counterable. On top of this, since he's an Overwatch fanboy favourite, I think his win rates are going to start out really low until we have braved the initial wave of juvenile excitement that drowns him. It should be noted that two of the heroes he does really well against - Tracer and Tychus - are both out of meta themselves, meaning he might not find a place until they do. With abysmal waveclear and mercenary camp claiming, I can't really justify picking him over some of the other melee assassins. Still a good Genji is a good Genji, and the hero's surprisingly fun. Viable tier, barely.
