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!

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

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

Spoiler

In the brush to the right of the sun altar, next to Uther.

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

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.

I was thinking about the same!

      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.
      Blizzard (Source)
      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.
      Cheers,
      David
      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.

      Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Blizzard made all Heroes free to play until April 2.
      Placeholder for tweet 1241138506744786944 Earlier today, we learned about the +100% increase to Experience gains in World of Warcraft. Heroes of the Storm isn't staying behind and received similar treatment, as all Heroes have been unlocked until April 2.

      Trying to do what we can to make staying inside, working from home, or being socially distant right now easier!
      Have fun trying out the heroes you have never played before!
      This is a great opportunity to try out Heroes that you never owned/played. Don't forget that reaching level 5 with a Hero rewards 500 Gold.
