Is it really hard to realize?  1.This pic shows dragonstrike ability icon 

next hero is hanzo for sure

you can check icon of dragonstrike:)  (in this or overwatch site)

2.It has no mean that they release a hero which is irrelevant to the new battleground

3.genji should face his foe in nexus like as what we saw about medivh and guldan

I think it's even dumber then any of you guys guesses. I think they're gonna be like 'Hah ha! The new hero is Genji!' ...cause you didn't already know that did you?! (Even though he's been on the PTR/Beta for a week) Hoo ho! Cause we haven't put out any official video or anything showing off Genji yet like we do with every other new Hero a week in advance of them hitting the live servers and when they go up on the PTR. So you didn't know about it, did you?! Hoo ho! Aren't we clever!' ...really blizzard.... really... o_O? Do you really think we're all that oblivious?... I think they do.

I don't know Hanzo (no interest in OW) and if he would growl or sneak... but no Genji Vid and that foe-theory seem pretty probable. There is no Genji Video, because it will be a Genji/Hanzo Vid. The Vid will show Genji on the new map first and just like GyberDVonaven says everyone will feel trolled.. and then Hanzo will be shown...

Blizz said they wont do all vids for all heroes....

I think it will be Broll Bearmantle, because a dragon can't sneak around, the growl is to soft and silently for a dragon (especially for deathwing). The biggest hind for me is, that the cracks perfectly fits his claws. 

I am happy about the new hero! A druid bear form tank works good in the game, i promise it!

Calling it now, it's gonna be Broll Bearmantle. The 3 claw marks looks very similar to the claws in his gauntlets also the growl is from his bear form and he's probably going to be the second multi class hero since he's a druid.

I'm very sure it's gonna be one of the dual dragons from overwatch. 

Its two dragons biting each other tails, not one but two, it's definitely the dragon brothers from overwatch.

refer to their short animation.

If it wouldnt be Hanzo they would choose different background and not Shimada's homeland. :)

I might be wrong, just leave me in to it so I can be happy. :-D

I'm surprised nobody suggested the D2 Druid as a possible hero. Considering when Cassia was revealed they were talking about the Diablo Anniversary so it could be a D2 Druid Werebear/Werewolf growl

Neither of them would ruin the Shimada symbol like that. So I think its going to be more towards Broll in this case. Neither of them have anything with anything growling to do. More than Hanzo's legendary skin which probably doesnt have much to do with his actual background story.

I disagree on that neither would do that to the symbol. Genji was nearly killed because of the clan. Hanzo was forced to "kill" Genji by the clan's elders, he abandoned the clan straight after. 

I really doubt they have any love for their family's symbol :p

Sure he might hate his family. But why did the clawing sound come in this teaser then and not in Genjis? And Genjis map would in that case have been Nepal which he escaped to after the whole assassination. Not saying that youre wrong :) You might be correct that its Hanzo. Im probably just as hyped as you :D

Yeah, I'd like this too. Broll would complete the gladiatorial set that Valeera, Varian and Rehgar currently make up however, so I wouldn't be surprised if they had designed most of those heroes with each other in mind as they all have unique voice lines for each other, for example.

i think its  hard to be hanzo, the dragon simble in the center may not indicate a shimada hero but yes a dragon being, and if you pay atencion you can see some "fire" mixed with the petals, what might mean a dragon related with fire and of course you still have the claw inthe picture, so i bet deathwing will be the next hero

i more of meant, the post implies blizz is going to add a hero to the game on the 25th that has never been put on the PTR and literally is announced then released the next day as the post says "release" not "announce"

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Heroes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.
    • By Stan
      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
