Could Samuro be the Next Hero in the Nexus?

Recommended Posts

It looks like there have been a few easter eggs posted to the /r/heroesofthestorm sub-reddit that could hint at the release of the next hero after Zarya and Alarak for Heroes of the Storm. Check them out!

The post on Reddit came after a number of Korean players were invited to test the newest maps. The OP, user rost473, had this to say:

Quote

In korea community 'Inven', was found easter egg of Blade Master 'Samuro' in Braxis Holdout map

then click on 'Hots' logo button at 'SAMURO SHODOWN'(It was clearly parody to SNK's game 'Samurai Shodown') arcade machine...

 

Blade Master 'Samuro' (or Sammyro?) was THE NEXT HERO CONFIRMED!!

Source: 'Inven' 펠릭스님

Could this be confirmation of the latest hero to be joining the Nexus? It's definitely possible that another Warcraft hero could join the fray, but is there any other proof?

OPrime, the coach for TempoStorm, also posted this image that hints at a Blademaster's banner in the background of the Machines of War artwork:

Placeholder for tweet 765653952947851264

So, here's the question: who is Samuro?

Some of you might know him from Warcraft III, others may have never played the game. He was an orcish Blademaster from the Burning Blade clan. After his village was decimated by a wildkin, a form of wild moonkin, he hunted the beast and killed it. He went on to aid Rexxar, Rokhan and Chen Stormstout in their mission by sabotaging the structures of a Kul Tiras (an Alliance faction) base, allowing them to continue with their mission. 

Regardless of the outcome, this would be a seriously cool addition to the game!

Seeing how the 4chan guy was correct this far. wouldn't be surprised at all. the only thing that surprised me so far was Alarak

Yeah, I feel like Alarak was a serious curve ball! My reaction to Zarya was huge excitement, but definitely felt slightly expected. Alarak I was just like "OMG"

I'm beyond hyped if Samuro joins the Nexus too tbh

How did you not know how to decode the code that was hidden in another 3 codes that was in another language that was so tiny you needed a magnifying glass to see it in a mirror on a window?

What has been bugging me for a while now is the Garrosh reference in Overwatch.  In the starting area with all of the arcade games they have Fighters of the Storm 1,2 and 3 and all of the characters are already in game.  Except Garrosh who is fighting against Kerrigan.  When they did the early access beta weekend I saw it and freaked out thinking Garrosh would be next to the Nexus.  Alas, there hasn't been any indication since.

My main point is that Blizzard has been really creative with their easter eggs lately, which I love, but they don't all end up happening right away.  So even if Samuro isn't the very next hero to show up this is still a really cool egg and I applaud the guys who were able to find it.  I know I never would have!!

There's a lot of people inspecting everything frame by frame... I try do to the same thing as you but 2 options always come to me: 1. lose patience and ragequit 2. tomorrow there will be an article somewhere with everything hidden listed in it.

Pretty much my way of thinking :D

I can't find it, but as someone said above, there's a 4chan post that "leaks" information about future releases. Samuro was actually one of the supposed hero releases that has been planned for a while, so I'm praying it's true. He was meant to be some sort of stealth blademaster, if I remember right!

I'm still waiting for Maghda

Now that would be an interesting one, in what role? Specialist caster? Could maybe even work similar to Abathur and be able to "evolve" allies into more powerful versions like she does in the boss fight

Garrosh is just one of those characters that simply was always going to be an addition to Heroes of the Storm.

 

Also, for the record:

Spoiler

Garrosh was in the latest 4chan leak as a character in development back 7 or so weeks ago, along with 24 other unannounced characters and Zarya.

All of said characters were said to not be characters to expect anytime soon, but again, the list did have Zarya, and we saw how that turned out.

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Heroes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.

      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
