I honestly think they needed to add another stealth based character to the roster.  I know that the stealthies get a lot of hate, especially Nova, but they are a valid play style and can make or break a match.  Looking forward to seeing Samuro.

Predicting a mirror image nerf. That has such crazy lane push potential for an assassin. With any minion support it's essentially "increase all siege damage by 60% for 18 seconds". Same reason they removed and damage from Nova's decoy.
Curious to see how the talents work, I can see a really good crit hit build in the works.

HoTS actually deals with Stealth incredibly well, so I find myself really in favour of this. Dealing with crap like Shaco in LoL, where there is no indicator of his position in stealth is a pain in the ass (you can see smoke when he enters it, but when he's in it you're screwed). With enough awareness, you can completely lockdown stealthers.

      Deathwing will be nerfed in a future balance patch. We're looking at more general nerfs across the board, mainly to Destroyer form, overall talent tuning, and some World Breaker buffs.

      Hey Calcaz!
      We get enough data, even with a massive ban rate. Of course, as more data comes in we’re more confident with where things sit, but we have always had enough data to make educated changes before the first balance patch after a new hero release. After the first balance patch, we always have an even more clear picture of where things stand since we have that much more time for data to come in.
      Balance patch is looking good!
      For Deathwing, more general nerfs across the board, particularly to Destroyer form. Also some World Breaker buffs and talent tuning.
      Can’t confirm dates. Confirming dates is the path to the dark side.
