this new hero on the 4th better be KT

Spoiler

I think since we are getting Genji, a new Overwatch battleground, and an Overwatch event (per the press kit leaks) we are going to get a 2nd straight Overwatch after Genji. My bet would be on Hanzo and especially D.Va.

Still, I wouldn't rule Kel'Thuzad out for the May 4th reveal. KT always has a shot of being revealed at any moment.

Stukov also has a shot too, since Stukov was teased on that Where's Waldo picture about 2 months ago.

Regardless, I think we are guaranteed a Kel'Thuzad and Stukov reveal by the end of the year.

Because five damn Warcraft heroes in a row wasn't enough, on top of there already being more Warcraft heroes than everything else combined. I'd rather it be anything BUT a Warcraft hero.

There are always gonna be more Warcraft heroes, I think we can live with that. 

 

I'm secretly hoping for Jaraxxus, or C'Thun. HoTs always goes on about being different so what's wrong with a mass of tentacles and eyeballs xD

if it is OverWatch it makes sense since there aren't any battlegrounds for that (hoping OW new battleground for music) and they need more heroes. Though if they do a copy and paste of Genji (don't really know what D.Va can do) I wonder what he'd be like (thinking about Deflect, it could some thing as "Protected from basic attacks and reflect the damage you would take from them" or "f*ck Kael'thas' Pyroblast back at him" xD)

But I wonder, is the Launch Event on the 18th the actual patch launch or is it something on HoTs 1.0 to fluff up the event...

It is nice to see, that the change is implemented so soon. About May 4 hero, well hope this is not an assassin.. Universe well does not matter as long as it will be somehow relevant to the game.

Really hoping for a couple more solid tanks and supports to balance out the roster a little bit.

If the next hero is from Overwatch, it could be Zenyatta.

If the new hero could be anything else, they could give us Emperor Tomator from The Lost Vikings, or even Blackthorne himself. We need more Blizzard Classics.

inb4 Blizzard adds a car from Rock'n'Roll Racing as a specialist. But yeah, more characters from classics would be nice, even though I'm not sure many players would be able to relate to the new character, which is why Warcraft is the most used franchise for heroes.

They don't have to relate. In Super Smash Bros., for example, you have obscure characters like Captain Falcon, and Nintendo classics such as Mr. Game & Watch, Duck Hunt and even freaking R.O.B., and people love them all.

This proves that a character doesn't have to be instantly recognizable and famous to be loved. If anything, their presence would actually make people interested in playing their original games.

I actually downloaded a SNES emulator and played The Lost Vikings again, after over 10 years, just because they were added to Heroes of the Storm. They are my favorite hero(es) because of their lines and design (too bad I suck using them).

Upcoming AssassinS, yes. Apparently it's Genji, because after apologizing for giving us so many Assassins in a row, the best course of action is to give us two non-Assassin heroes, then start dumping Assassins into our laps again. #ForeverAssassinsOfTheStorm

So HotS 2.0 will hit on this tuesday, right? With the 800mb pre-download we got, it probably is.

Diablo has 3 races, humans, demons, angels

Starcraft has 3 races, terran, zerg, protoss

overwatch has 2 races, robots and humans (and yes there is ones like winston but i mean... hes a monkey)

Yeah, I see your point. I don't mind having more Warcraft characters. Once (if) they release all possible characters for the other franchises, there will still be a plethora of Warcraft characters anyway.

Even if that were a legitimate argument, they can split them up instead of giving us so many in a row, let alone all of the same class. I wouldn't mind so much if they gave us Specialists and Supports, hell, even tanks, but they're dumping ASSASSINS on us in huge clumps. Not just Assassins, but WARCRAFT ASSASSINS. After the amount of Warcraft Assassins we've been getting, I want neither.

 

PS: Zul'Jin is the worst Diablo hero.

I'm hoping we get either a demon or Old God, but as far as i know neither C'Thun nor Jaraxxus are actually the most important characters of their respective factions. If my WoW lore doesn't betray me, Jaraxxus is just a lesser demonlord and not an important character for storyline at all. What comes to C'Thun, yes he actually has a big role in WoW lore, but Yogg-Saron arguably has bigger and thus wouldn't be surprised to see him over C'Thun. Still when it comes to new heroes, I would just be glad to get Old God or WoW demon and wouldn't whine about getting a lesser character over more important one.

Ah cool, I didn't actually know that about them, the only reason I know their names are from Hearthstone (never played WoW xD) But now that I think about it, Yogg would be quite awesome too. Whatever they do decide, at the end of the day they still have a humongous pool in WoW to choose from, so hopefully they'll do something like they did at Christmas with Rag and give someone very significant from WoW

      Maintenance has concluded for all games and Junkrat is now live together with the Hallow's End event.
      Note: * Orange Text and an Asterisk indicate a change or addition between PTR and live patch notes.
      Blizzard has done some last-minute tweaking to Junkrat's abilities. Below are full patch notes. 
      Blizzard (Source)
      General
      New Special Event: Hallow's End 2017
      Play 25 games during Hallow’s End in any mode except Custom Games, Training, or Heroes Brawl to earn spooky new items! Here are some of the treats you’ll be able to unwrap by completing the three-part quest chain: Part 1: Play 2 Games during Hallow’s End Reward: Cartoon Headless Horseman Spray Part 2: Play 8 Games during Hallow’s End Reward: Hallow’s End Warcrest Banner Part 3: Play 15 Games during Hallow’s End Reward: Headless Horseman Portrait Hallow's End Loot Chests Once Hallow’s End begins after October 17, all Loot Chests you earn through progression (except Hero-Specific Chests), or purchase using Gems will be replaced with Hallow’s End Loot Chests. Weekly Brawl Rewards after October 20 will also award one Hallow’s End Chest. Also starting with Hallow’s End, special event Loot Chests will now guarantee at least one of the limited-time items from that event—including portraits, sprays, skins, and mounts! Until Hallow’s End concludes during the week of November 13, you’ll pick up one of these limited-time Loot Chests every time you level-up or earn a weekly Heroes Brawl reward. You can also head to the Loot tab in-game to purchase Rare Hallow’s End Chests directly using Gems. Additionally, please note that any Loot Chests you already own prior to the start of the event will not convert to Hallow’s End Chests. Hotkeys
      The hotkeys to switch between the Stats, Talents, and Death Recap tabs of the leader panel (currently F1, F2, and F3) can now be rebound in the Hotkeys menu. These hotkeys now provide quick access to the respective tab of the leader panel when the hotkey is held down. Windows XP/Vista Deprecation
      In July, we announced our intention to end support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in Heroes of the Storm.  With this patch, Heroes of the Storm will no longer run on these two operating systems. Players who are affected by this change are encouraged to upgrade to a newer OS version. New Hero: Junkrat
      The destruction of the Australian omnium left the area an irradiated waste and survivors like Jamison Fawkes were greatly affected by radiation. Now as the explosive-obsessed criminal Junkrat, he is renowned for leaving havoc and bedlam in his wake.

Junkrat's Trait can be activated to detonate the mine, dealing 180 damage to nearby enemies and knocking them back. Junkrat can also be affected by Concussion Mine, but takes no damage. Limit 1 active mine. Steel Trap (E) Place a trap on the ground that arms after 2 seconds. Deals 130 damage to the first enemy that walks over it and Roots them for 2 seconds.Limit 1 active trap. Heroic Abilities
      RIP-Tire (R) Create a motorized bomb with 500 Health that lasts 15 seconds. While active, Junkrat is immobile but gains control of RIP-Tire's movement. RIP-Tire can be reactivated to detonate immediately, knocking nearby enemies back, and dealing 750 damage to enemies in the center of the blast, and 450 damage to enemies outside of the center. Rocket Ride (R) After 1.25 seconds, Junkrat launches into the air. While in the air, he can steer the landing location by moving. After 3.5 seconds, Junkrat lands, dealing 780 damage to nearby enemies and activating Total Mayhem. 5 seconds after landing, Junkrat reappears at the Altar and gains 150% additional Movement Speed until dismounted.
