Who's the New Hero?

Remember the guy who has been predicting new Hero, Skins & Mount additions with a 100% accuracy? Well, we haven't heard from him since May and the only Heroes left to be added according to his post are Varian & Blademaster Samuro.

Zarya Trait Nerf

Yesterday, Blizzard issued a hotfix to apply a nerf to Zarya's trait. Here's the post by Ravinix.

Pretty sure the next hero will be Varian given the artwork data mining. That would be really cool to see him as a Warrior, whether as a tank or bruiser sort of role.

Regardless, this game feels like it is on a role right now. The meta is pretty great, the viable heroes list keeps seemingly expanding, and the game speed is fast but not all rush down based. Really pleased by how much this game has evolved this year, and how we've gotten some great heroes like Li-Ming, Xul, Auriel, and Zarya this year.

Blizz could make Cain with a moveset inspired by CarbotAnimations (Would be Cool If) and the Archivist April Fools Class in Diablo III.

I'd hope that he'd fill a similar role to Sonya, to be honest. Absolutely love playing her.

I wish I could throw more money at this idea, but I'm already throwing everything!
