Alexei Stukov Confirmed?

Recommended Posts

Blizzard shared a picture on Twitter yesterday and the point was to find Valeera. The picture contains a lot of Heroes and infested terran eggs, pointing at the possible release of Alexei Stukov as one of the next Heroes.

We know for sure the next Hero won't be an Assassin. You can find the eggs near the bushes next to Zagara.

Here's how the eggs look like in Starcraft.

Have you found any other Hero you cannot identify?

So, specialist, huh? Well, according to SC 2 campaign, we may expect Corrosive Blast (dmg projectile), Regeneration Aura and Infested Marines, so he propably wont be support or warrior. Ults? Apocalisk and\or Aleksander cruiser? (you know, the coop mission skills). In the other hand they sound like slightly reworked Raynor's Hyperion and Kerrigan's Ultralisk, so it will be kinda boring. What do you think?

He plays a lot differently in the campaign rather than in Co-op. I would expect some way to affect enemy minions, spawn infested, and also some of his campaign skills as well - but I think he's just better suited as a specialist designed to tear down structures like Xul. The abilities, however, would make him play differently, and I believe he is ranged in SC2, so it would make more sense to see that transferred over, ruling out a warrior - Zarya is only a warrior because of her shields. I could see him as a support, but I'm not sure how he would make that work; Brightwing already has decent AoE heals, making that a bit redundant. For all we know, he's not even next, and I speculated all this in vain. :)

I believe I see Arthas without the helm of the Lich King on, as well as his cloak not being torn too, just under the shrine at the top. A minor detail to a skin perhaps, but one that I would happily accept. 2017, let's make Arthas great again!

Sooo, has anyone found Valeera? I think I have, but maybe wrong.

Spoiler

We all have been complaining about Blizz adding WoW assassins (even tho im a fan of warcraft i was getting kinda sick of it too), knowing Blizzard, they will proboably just start adding assassins from other franchises :D

I wonder if he'll have a kit similar to the one suggested by CarBotAnimations.

Wish so, but that one seemed cool but a bit too powerful. Looked really fun to play though!

I hope he will be an infested one rather than a normal one, although I am not a Starcraft veteran. :)

If anything I could see that being either a skin or maybe an ability. Become infested for 30 seconds and get buffs or new abilities mayhaps?

I wonder who is that red winged beast thing on the right just above greymane.

That is Arthas' Crimson Count skin.

      Heroes Developer Blizz_DWarner wrote a personal post on Reddit, thanking the community for the amazing time they've had designing the game over the 8 or so years.
      (Source)
      Hi everyone!
      Just wanted to pop in and give a proper personal thank you and goodbye to all the lovelies that have kept the community alive and thriving over the years.
      I’m gonna get mushy for a bit, but I feel I can’t even begin to express how much this game and its community means to me. Anyone who has worked on any artistic or creative endeavor knows that some portion of ‘you’ goes into your work and becomes inextricably written into your soul. It's painful to look back and see those freshly separated fragments of 'you' suspended in time, but that's life eh?
      I started on this project some 8 or so years ago as an assistant technical designer, originally tasked with simple data implementations of the first sets of maps and heroes. Since then, I’ve touched probably every map, dozens of reworks, several core hero designs and of course several thousand bugs. This work was not spawned out of some special DWarner pocket dimension though, it occurred here, in the real (digital) world, with my hundreds of (very talented and handsome) coworkers and most importantly, you.
      Despite what community consensus might state, designers are usually present in forum discussions, watching popular streams (special shoutout to FollowGrubby, CCL, and the crew of Into The Nexus) and of course sharing dank memes. All of your participation and energy helped us trudge through our difficult days (it’s still a job after all), guide our decision making, and just generally help us feel like we’re part of something more than just data fields and debug maps. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks, really.
      If you made it this far, raise a glass of whatever and say cheers to all! Cheers to the passionate, cheers to the haters, cheers to the memers, cheers to the contrarians! Cheers to the goof leaguers, wood leaguers and the most sparkling diamonds! Cheers to the quickmatchers, cheers to the Vs AI’rs, cheers to the ppl that play every night, or only twice a year! Cheers to Spazzo and Notbelial and all the lurkers too! Cheers to CCL, the 323r’s, the 6.5r’s! Cheers to the whole damn lot of you ❤️
      Steaming hot regards,
      Blizz_DWarner
      P.S. I'll see you all in Diablo 4 ?

      Blizzard made some changes to the free Hero rotation that resets each Tuesday in the latest patch, changing this week's rotation.
      The free Hero rotation won't reset weekly. Instead, it will reset every 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd of every month. As a result, the free Hero rotation posted on June 12 changed with the patch.
      The following Heroes are free to play until July 15, 2022:

      A new spectral skin for the Butcher is now available for purchase in Heroes of the Storm!
      The skin was released with the latest patch and costs 525 Shards or 5,000 Gold.
      Flavor Text
      An unrelenting hacking echoed off the walls of the Cathedral and as Prince Aidan made his way through its depths, the sound only grew louder. There were no screams; just that dreadful sound... over and over.

      The latest minor Heroes of the Storm patch added a new Login reward -- the Epic Arcane Chaos Lizard mount. In this post, we preview it in more detail.
      The mount is rewarded by simply logging in to Heroes of the Storm.

      Flavor Text
      Adorned in heavy armor and brimming with the power of the Nexus, the mere sight of an epic chaos lizard and its rider can be enough to turn the tide of battle.

      The mount has 3 tints according to the Nexus Compendium, but only the Arcane one is  available to players. The following variations cannnot be obtained. Images courtesy of the Nexus Compendium.
