Deputy Valla doesn't really fit with the Hallow's End motif...

Blizzard wasted the golden opportunity to make Kel'thuzad playable by the Hallow's End. I'd like to see the Headless Horseman himself playable, even if he is a Boss already. They could have made a Headless Horseman skin for Arthas or Uther, at least.

Would have been on board with an Arthas skin, for sure. I hate his current skins tbh, I just think they all look ridiculous.

I really like the Mystic Kingdom Arthas, to be honest. It's fucking Guan Yu; too bad they didn't change his voice.

Oh, actually, that's a fair point. I don't mind that one, completely forgot it existed :p

I wish they'd give more skins for characters that don't have many. The skin department is  really unbalanced.

It's all about which skin's art will sell the most, I guess. Kharazim needs a new skin badly :(

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓  
      Mid-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Arthas Dehaka (ban) Alarak Tracer (ban) Cassia↓  Azmodan Abathur Alexstrasza Blaze Imperius (new) Kerrigan   Falstad↑ Gul'dan Zarya Auriel Johanna Sonya↓ Maiev   Fenix↓ Junkrat   Brightwing Muradin Yrel Malthael   Greymane Kel'Thuzad    Kharazim Stitches (ban)   Ragnaros   Hanzo (ban) Li-Ming-   Li Li Varian   Thrall   Lunara Mephisto   Lt. Morales↑     Varian   Sgt.Hammer (ban) Nazeebo   Lúcio↑         Tychus Orphea (ban)   Rehgar         Zul'jin Sylvanas   Stukov           Zagara   Whitemane↓  
      Low-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer — Chen Gazlowe Valeera Valla Chromie Medivh (ban) Deckard↓    D.Va Murky     Probius         The Butcher            
      Situational picks (map, team composition, or counterpick)
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Cho'gall (ban) Leoric Illidan Nova — Cho'gall (ban) Tassadar Uther (ban) Tyrael Rexxar Xul Samuro     The Lost Vikings (ban)    
      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
