Reddit is full of whine and Samuro will be nerfed next week! At least Weekly Sales for next week may cheer up a little.

OP Samuro

Hotslogs is reporting a 66.9% win rate, with the next Hero Sgt. Hammer being at 55% (-11.9%). You can see Samuro on both teams in Quick Match and he gets banned in Hero League all the time. Even though he won't be playable at BlizzCon, he is simply overtuned at the moment. This is the Heroes of the Storm alphabet!

Reddit has been full of whine! Posts range from a call to action to nerf Samuro at once to efficient ways of countering. Now seriously here are some real counterpicks. Some philosophraptors even claim that not damage, but Samuro's survivability is what makes him overpowered! If that wasn't enough to make you entertained, what if it's just the bad players and Samuro isn't really OP?

And the winner is...

We totally hear you all on this and we have been in game with you and experiencing it ourselves. Our goal is to release something for Samuro (along with some bug and stability fixes, some of which are causing his win rate to inflate as well) next week.

As an early JFYI we do not have plans to adjust balance for any other heroes in this patch, as we want our pro players to have a place to play while they're displaced from their regions visiting BlizzCon (live) and things look pretty good at the moment.

Comparing Samuro images to Nova fakes alone make him overpowered, images do damage without talents images are 2, images chase enemy forever, Nova fakes do 0 damage unless talented with a lv 16 talent, is only 1 each time, it not chase the enemy until die...

Aside from that also his R deal same damage of Pyroblast with the fact that is unstoppable and there is no way to counter it except killing Samuro to stop it.

If this wasn't enough when you try to kill Samuro he just become invisible and leave fight while you are attacked by his images.

Images shoulda die really fast to make him not OP, I've seen images alone clearing lanes because they last like forever and deal too much damage. I think 2 images HP at 20% of Samuro max health will be acceptable. making a total of 40% of his HP instead of a 100% can send him towards a 50% winrate

it's the damn mirror images. 

It's almost perfect that the Blademaster's Mirror Image trinket was amazing in WoW and now the skill is crazy for Samuro :p

      Blackheart got greedy! Only the richest team can hope to win over his favor with a hefty payment of 100 coins. Dodge cannonball barrages while trying to gather enough Doubloons to take down your enemies. Complete three matches of the Booty Coffers brawl to earn a Winter Loot Chest.

      Rules:
      Shuffle pick - Choose from one of three Heroes before entering the battle. Standard play - no talent or level restrictions. Blackheart appears immediately after the gates open, and accepts Doubloon turn-ins as usual. Skeleton Doubloon camps have been removed from the map. Doubloon chests spawn more often, appear at new locations, and drop more Doubloons. Forts and keeps drop 10 Doubloons when they die. Mercenary camps drop an additional 3 Doubloons (for a total of 5). The Boss camp drops a total of 15 Doubloons. While chests are active, Blackheart fires one cannonball every 2 seconds in an area immediately around the chest. Blackheart does not bombard enemy structures as normal (at 10/12/14 Doubloons, etc.). Instead, he waits for a team to turn in 100 Doubloons, whereupon he bombards the enemy core until it's dead. Rewards:
      Complete three matches of the Booty Coffers brawl to earn a Loot Chest!

      An issue with Matchmaking Rating seeding from the previous Season caused players to be placed at significantly different ranks from where they ended in the last Season. In order to fix the issue, Blizzard will be resetting the Hero and Team League records (including placement matches) of any affected accounts tomorrow.

      With yesterday’s patch, a number of players unfortunately encountered an issue that caused them to be placed at ranks that were significantly different from where they ended the previous season. This issue is unrelated to our Performance-Based Matchmaking implementation, and is instead a result of an issue with Matchmaking Rating seeding from the previous season. We’ve finished diagnosing the problem and are currently working on a fix which, once completed, means that we will be resetting the Hero and Team League records (including placement matches) of any affected accounts. 

      In order to implement the fix without taking down the servers, we will need to disable the Hero and Team League Matchmaking queues for roughly an hour. Our current plan is to start this in all regions at some point tomorrow, Dec 14, but we will keep this thread updated if anything changes. For players that have yet to complete your ranked placement matches, we recommend waiting until this issue is addressed.

      We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this causes for those of you that have already made significant progress into Season 1 2018. We’re extremely excited to show off the major gameplay changes included in this patch, and will be working hard to implement a fix so you can experience everything the Nexus has to offer without major issues like this. Thank you very much for your patience.
