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...

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"

      Our twentieth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of June is here!
      We present our twentieth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of June 2018.
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the June 12 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). Although tier listings are generally the product of balance, many factors come into play when discussing the relative perceived strengths of heroes, including player regions, maps, play style, skill level, and, of course, personal perception. As such, any tier list—including this very one—should never be interpreted as gospel, but rather, as a guide to better grasp what to expect with regards to typical drafting experiences. One useful application of such lists is to allow you know which heroes to look out for in terms of practice and counterplay, ultimately improving your knowledge of the game.
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Garrosh Fenix Malfurion  Zagara↑ Prime tier heroes are considered to be extremely strong in all situations, and show no obvious weakness. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most matches.
       
      Core Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Arthas Chromie↑ Alexstrasza Abathur Blaze   Falstad Auriel↑ Azmodan Dehaka Genji↓ Deckard Nazeebo Diablo↓ Greymane Stukov↓   E.T.C.↓ Hanzo     Johanna Jaina     Muradin Junkrat     Stitches Li-Ming     Varian (Taunt) Lunara↑       Maiev↓       Malthael       Thrall↓       Tychus↑       Tracer     Core tier heroes are strong in a wide variety of situations and have few counter-picking possibility. They should form the core of your team, and be picked after Prime Tier heroes have been distributed.
       
      Viable Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak Alarak Ana↑ Gazlowe Artanis Cassia Kharazim Medivh D.Va Gul'dan Li Li↓ Murky Leoric Kael'thas Lt. Morales↓ Sylvanas↓ Tyrael  Kel'Thuzad Lúcio↓ Xul Zarya Kerrigan Rehgar     Nova- Uther↓     Ragnaros       Samuro       The Butcher       Varian (Colossus Smash)↑       Varian (Twin Blades of Fury)↑       Valla       Zeratul+       Zul'jin     Viable tier heroes are generally well-rounded that have either fallen out of favour, or, inversely, are on the rise in popularity, due to the current Prime tier contenders.
       
      Niche Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Chen Cho'gall Brightwing↓ Probius Cho'gall Illidan Tassadar Sgt. Hammer Rexxar Raynor Tyrande↓     Valeera             Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They may also picked to "round out" your team composition when your team composition is missing out on key components, such as a "jungler" (mercenary camps), a solo laner, or solid waveclear.
       
      Underplayed Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Yrel (new) - - The Lost Vikings Underplayed Tier heroes are deemed to be either considerably weaker than the majority of other Heroes, or much more challenging to play properly. Although they may situationally shine, these heroes are generally avoided by most players.
       
      Discussion
      I know I promised a new list for last week, but I generally try to give important changes about a week to set in somewhat before writing about them. Nexomania launching on a Friday (May 22) also threw my timing off slight as well, though I think it's safe to expect future events involving loot chests to fire off right before weekends for economic reasons.
       
      In other news, I brought up the idea of reworking how the list is presented a couple weeks ago. The first change I'd like to discuss pertains to role division. Since Blizzard is taking its sweetest time with reworking the class system, I'm looking for a way to better convey each hero's role. Concretely, this means I'm considering adding more categories and renaming some of the classic ones. This requires a good bit of consideration and some creativity, although I feel like the system I discussed in last month's tier list is solid enough to officially subject to everyone's scrutiny. Let me know how you feel about it, as I'm sure it can be improved.
       
      Tanks:
      Bruisers:
      Fighters:
      Stalkers:
      Marksmen: (and markswomen)
      Mages:
      Healers:
      Enablers:
       
      The second change I'm looking to make pertains to tiering. Although I've never been completely happy with it, some of the problems are becoming more and more apparent as the game is becoming more balanced, and as I spend time thinking about it. First, it fails to really make sense with regards to statistics. For instance, Genji, who stands at at a low 40% win rate, has been considered one of the strongest hero for over a year now. Why might that be? I don't know (well, I do...), but I certainly wish I could better convey this. Second, the names don't really make sense because they describe different states; niche and viable,  describe circumstances, whereas core and prime could be said describe a hierarchy. This doesn't really make sense as prime tier heroes are certainly viable, and as niche tier heroes can outperform so-called prime heroes under the right circumstances. Third, the system does not account for player skill level differences or regional preferences.

      I lack the data to sort heroes by league (bronze, silver, etc.), but even if I did have enough data, it would hardly tells the whole story (refer to the Genji anecdote above). The tiering system I'm considering goes like this, however:

      Metagame defining
      General pick
      Counter-pick
      Situational (map/team composition dependent)

      I'd probably add a Ban-worthy tag to certain heroes. For instance, I'd never ban Zagara over Chromie despite considering her generally stronger. Furthermore, I'd consider giving some heroes + and - tags to provide a certain sense of perceived power, though I'll have to consider carefully.

      As for the metagame discussion, it'll be coming shortly, as per usual. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone feels about the changes.

      The number of Battlegrounds available in non-Ranked play modes has been reduced until July 9, in order to maximize each player's exposure to Alterac Pass. The change does not affect Ranked Play, as Alterac Pass won't be available until the week of July 9 there.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Attention, recruits! We’ve received updated orders from the front in Alterac. The Horde and Alliance have finished setting up their forward operating bases in the Pass, so it’s time to take the battlefield by storm. We hope your training exercises with General Vanndar or General Drek’Thar have been successful, because Alterac Pass is now available for play in all non-ranked game modes, including Custom Games.
      NON-RANKED BATTLEGROUND POOLS TEMPORARILY REDUCED
      In order to maximize each soldier’s exposure to Alterac Pass, the number of Battlegrounds available for play in Versus A.I., Quick Match, and Unranked matchmaking queues have been temporarily reduced. This reduction will remain in place until the Echoes of Alterac event concludes on July 9. All of the Battlegrounds removed from the non-ranked pool will remain available for play in Custom Games.
      REDUCED BATTLEGROUND POOL Alterac Pass Braxis Holdout Cursed Hollow Dragon Shire Infernal Shrines Tomb of the Spider Queen Please note: Hero League and Team League Battleground pools have not been adjusted, as Alterac Pass will not be available in ranked play until the week of July 9.
      Grab your gear, set your loadouts, and report immediately to Alterac Pass for additional orders from your faction's General. We’ll see you on the front lines!
