      Lady Vashj Is Not The Next Hero Heroic Deals: Week of March 25th 2020 Ranked Season 1 Extended By 2 Weeks All Heroes Unlocked Until April 2nd
    • By Stan
      The time has come to speculate who the next Hero might be and for now, we know it's not Vashj.
      Players have started speculating on Reddit who the next Hero might be and the hottest candidate was Lady Vashj, as she was recently added in Hearthstone's Ashes of Outland expansion and her Medusa-like appearance would be a nice fit for the upcoming Greek Gods event. On top of that, Heroes including Qhira have voice interactions recorded with the naga.
      Heroes of the Storm developer David Warner responded on Reddit that the next Hero isn't Lady Vashj and that the team has been thinking up funny voice lines for potential Hero interactions for years now, so the recorded interactions don't really mean a thing when it comes to determining the next Hero.

      While it may seem obvious because of the circumstantial evidence surrounding her (like Qhira's voicelines), nothing is set in stone and as much as I'd hate to say it, the Heroes team is not known for their clear and concise hints. You can look at something like D.va's announcement or Whitemane's teasers to see that much. All this hype does is potentially set the community up for disappointment and put an enormous amount of stress on the 10 skeletons still working on HotS development.
      Please hype responsibly.
      I've seen a lot of casual daydreaming and "what ifs" being taken as absolute truth lately. Remember that literally anyone can be writing these posts, and the odds of some forum rando having the exclusive inside scoop on our work is extremely low.
      Our writers have been thinking up fun voice lines for *potential* hero interactions for years now. It's not necessarily an indication of anything but the future proofing process.
      P.S. The next new Hero isn't Vashj and there's no hidden cryptic messages anywhere in this post ?

      It appears that Blizzard has extended 2020 Ranked Season 1 by two weeks.
      Blizzard has extended the ongoing Season by two weeks after they enabled all Heroes for play until April 2nd due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We now have one month remaining instead of two weeks.

      2020 Ranked Season 2 will likely go live with the recently-announced Greek Gods event which comes with new skins for Cassia, Tracer, a Pegasus mount, and more.
