Just wanted to point out that when you hover over the abilities for the builds nothing appears. 

Will let them know, thanks.

As of Nov 5, 2016  Zarya's Personal Barrier (W) ability has a 10 second cooldown. On Icy-veins, it says "12 seconds". 

Best,

NoirCity :)

After testing, it seems that after completing Demolitions Expert, even if the center area of Pinpoint Accuracy appears larger, the effective area doesn't change. I think that should be indicated somewhere in the talents description

I just tested it as well and it works fine for me - the area of Pinpoint AccuracyPinpoint Accuracy's bonus damage is increased. The only issue I can think of is that the hitboxes have different size from the visual models you see. However, this issue would is there even before completing the quest, as hitting the edge of the inner circle has no bonus damage either. The "dead zone"'s area increases with the diameter of bonus damage after completing Demolitions ExpertDemolitions Expert, which makes it more noticeable, I guess.

I tested it again and I really don't see a change, but maybe I'm not doing it right.


Here's how I proceed:
I go in try mode near the training mob, I select "Demolitions Expert" and "Pinpoint Accuracy" and clic on "complete quests".
Then I go no cooldown mode, and I use "Particle grenade", pixel by pixel in the direction of the mob, until I see the bonus damages. Then, without moving the mouse, I move at the exact point I've first seen the bonus damages occur. I then reset talents, take them again, and without completing the quest, self-cast "Particle Grenade" to see if the bonus damages occur. Since it does when I test it, I think the bonus damage area didn't decrease between the moment I made the test with the bonus area and the moment I made it without the bonus area.

Sorry if this isn't clear ^^'

@FarbasI tested it by shooting about 20 grenades (to get a feel for it and know the exact pixel it begins) at towers, then clicking the Complete Quest and trying it again, aiming at the same spot where was the pre-quest bonus damage's radius, then moving away from the target, then resetting against testing it where the quest's bonus damage ended. 

I will try your approach as well. Could be me testing it incorrectly.

I think the point that zarya shouldn't be your solotank isn't made enough clear. :)

I believe "Zarya should never be the only Warrior in your team. If none of your teammates drafted a Warrior, we do not recommend picking Zarya." is clear enough.

Why is there no mention of Zarya's trait ({D?}) in this section? As a new player trying to study up on heroes this doesn't really explain how her energy works, which I assume is trait based. Thanks.

      Here's a message from Production Director Kaéo Milker about the future of Heroes.
      Yesterday, Blizzard announced there would be no officially supported Heroes Esports events in 2019, because the game apparently doesn't bring in the desired revenue. As a result, Heroes will be set up for long-term sustainability, resulting in less content and a decreased cadence.
      Kaéo Milker, the game's Production Director, told the community in his latest message that an all-star team of developers are still going to develop the game and support it in the future. The team has a unique opportunity to rething things and reprioritize. They're still committed to regular Hero reworks, themed events, and new Heroes, because they want to keep the game dynamic and fun.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Yesterday, we announced a difficult decision—the HGC will not be returning in 2019 and we’ll be transitioning some Heroes of the Storm developers to our other game teams. While our extended Blizzard family working on World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, and our unannounced projects will be getting an influx of much-needed, extremely talented Heroes devs to help them achieve their goals, it also means that we’ll need to change the cadence of support for Heroes going forward.
      So, I’m sad. I’m sad because I love this team and this game that we’ve built together, with all of you, and this past year has been such a great one for Heroes of the Storm. The HGC had its best year yet and I was so looking forward to the 2019 season. On the game side, we’ve had a steady stream of some of the most sought-after heroes, amazing themed events, and impactful reworks. We also made meaningful progress on improving core systems and features across the game. We truly hit our stride in 2018, so I’m disappointed that some of the exciting plans we had for 2019 will have to change.
      But all is not lost. The team that remains dedicated to Heroes of the Storm is a veritable Who’s Who of developers who have been driving every facet of the game from the very beginning—from people you know and have seen speak publicly about the game for years, to those who have poured their hearts into it from behind the scenes. In short, we’re continuing to develop the game with an incredible team that has the experience and passion required to support Heroes of the Storm well into the future.
      The Heroes of the Storm team and I also have a unique opportunity to rethink things and reprioritize. Because now more than ever, our charge is to focus on taking care of you, our players, and to channel all our energy into keeping the game dynamic and fun. This means we’re still committed to regular hero reworks, themed events, and even new heroes. We’re setting our sights on the new goals and timelines for what we want to do with the game from here on out and we’re eager to share those plans as soon as they’re finalized.
      So, I’m also excited. I’m excited for my teammates to bring their hard-won experience from making this game to the other teams at Blizzard to help their games be even better. And I’m especially excited for Heroes of the Storm to continue evolving with a renewed focus and purity of purpose.
      Thank you for joining us on the journey so far, and please bear with us through these changes. Your feedback is as critical as ever, and continues to guide our priorities and decisions while helping us be better along the way.
      Thank you,
      Kaéo

      Heroes Global Championship and Heroes of the Dorm will not return in 2019.
      Update #1: Production Director Kaéo Milker today talked about the future of Heroes of the Storm.
      Bad news for Heroes Esports. J. Allen Brack and Ray Gresko today announced that Blizzard's shifting developers from Heroes of the Storms to other projects. As a result, there will be no HGC or Heroes of the Dorm next year and we can expect less new content. They're setting up the game for long-term sustainability and they feel canceling the events is a "right decision versus moving forward in a way that would not meet the standards that players and fans have come to expect." 
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re constantly changing and evolving not only our games, but how we support and grow them. This evolution is vital to our ability to continue doing what we love to do—making great games—and it’s what makes Blizzard, Blizzard.
      Over the past several years, the work of evaluating our development processes and making hard decisions has led to new games and other products that we’re proud of. We now have more live games and unannounced projects than at any point in the company’s history. We’re also at a point where we need to take some of our talented developers and bring their skills to other projects. As a result, we’ve made the difficult decision to shift some developers from Heroes of the Storm to other teams, and we’re excited to see the passion, knowledge, and experience that they’ll bring to those projects. This isn’t the first time we’ve had to make tough choices like this. Games like Diablo II, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Overwatch, and more would not exist had we not made similar decisions in the past.
      Despite the change, Heroes of the Storm remains our love letter to Blizzard’s worlds and characters. We’ll continue actively supporting the game with new heroes, themed events, and other content that our community loves, though the cadence will change. Ultimately, we’re setting up the game for long-term sustainability. We’re so grateful for the support the community has shown from the beginning, and the development team will continue to support Heroes with the same passion, dedication, and creativity that has made the game such a unique experience.
      We’ve also evaluated our plans around Heroes esports—after looking at all of our priorities and options in light of the change with the game, the Heroes Global Championship and Heroes of the Dorm will not return in 2019. This was another very difficult decision for us to make. The love that the community has for these programs is deeply felt by everyone who works on them, but we ultimately feel this is the right decision versus moving forward in a way that would not meet the standards that players and fans have come to expect.
      While we don’t make these decisions lightly, we do look to the future excited about what the decisions will mean for our other live games and all the projects we have in the works. We appreciate all of our hard-working developers and everyone in the Blizzard community, and look forward to sharing many more epic gaming experiences with you in the future.
      J. Allen Brack and Ray Gresko
      Here's also a post from the Heroes Esports team thanking the community for supporting HGC.
      Blizzard (Source)
      As you might have seen by now, the Heroes Global Championship will not return in 2019. 
      It has been an incredible journey for the HGC, and we are eternally grateful to everyone who has touched the program. This was a tough decision for all of us, but one we agree is the right decision in light of the change with the game and our desire to only deliver the best competitive experiences with all of our esports programs.
      The HGC has been proud to claim some of the most skilled players, entertaining casters, hard-working crew, professional teams, and dedicated staff in the business, and we can’t wait to see what this explosion of talent into the wider esports ecosystem will produce.
      To the HGC supporters, thank you. Thank you for every piece of feedback you provided, HGC Cheer you cheered, and—most of all—every ounce of your passion. We felt it every day, back at the office and alongside you at each and every live event. The HGC could not have happened without all of your support.
      Sincerely,
      The Heroes Esports Team
      J. Allen Brack and Ray Gresko announced there will be no HGC or Heroes of the Dorm in 2019.

      Throw snowballs at your opponents on Cursed Hollow and destroy the enemy Core in this week's Snow Brawl. Complete three matches to earn a Loot Chest.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The temperature has dipped in the hollow. Snow has invaded, and with snow comes snowballs! These calamitous tools of childlike whimsy will rain chaos as enemies and allies alike fly across the battlefield—or lie crushed beneath a pile of frosty destruction. Be wary, Heroes . . . winter has come to the Nexus!
      Rules
      Snowballs Pick from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Cursed Hollow. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Two types of Snowball items will appear on the ground throughout the match Fluffy Snowball A speedy snowball that hits a single enemy Hero in a line skill-shot while ignoring Minions and Structures Knocks targets back and deals significant damage Heavy Snowball An area-targeted explosion of snow that deals extra damage to non-Heroic targets Adds a 60% slow to all damaged targets that decays over 2 seconds Throw Snowball ability will appear next to your ability bar when you are holding a Snowball (Default Hotkey: F) Heroes can walk over Snowballs to pick them up and can only hold one Snowball at a time Tribute Spawns When the first tribute phase arrives, two tributes will initially spawn together - one five seconds after the other. When a player picks up a tribute, a new one will spawn somewhere else after a 5 second delay, meaning there will generally be two tributes alive. This type of "rolling" tribute spawning continues until either team is cursed. Tributes do not spawn during a curse or for 60 seconds after a curse. The event will never spawn enough tributes to allow both teams to get cursed at the same time. Destroy the enemy team’s Core to win the match! Rewards
      Complete three matches of Snow Brawl to earn a Loot Chest!
