Recommended Posts

Blizzard unveiled D.Va as the next Hero to join the roster in their Hanamura Showdown trailer.

Hana "D.Va" Song will be a Warrior in the Nexus. Skills and abilities Tba.

You do not have to fight alone! Battle over Hanamura, ancient home of the Shimada clan, with Genji and D.Va while you experience a world of new content in our game-redefining update we’re calling Heroes of the Storm 2.0. It’s a whole new era for Heroes, and we can’t wait to see you in the Nexus!

Well that was unexpected. I guess D.Va was hinted by datamining (I'm sure I've heard of D.Va somewhere before), but still surprising. Anyway, time to open my metric @$%^ton of chests.

Called it for the warrior, was HORRIBLY off on who it would be... Surprised we are getting two Overwatch back to back. Her kit could be REALLY good with absorb and zoning. Also the dive off a boost that I'm sure will collide with heroes and push them out of position can be really interesting as a back-line pressure. Her kit from Overwatch is an easy transition and will be pretty similar in purpose too.

Really curious how they make her non-mech kit, but I love the idea.

Actually I'm dissapointed by D.Va as next hero. I understand Blizzards wanna make more fan-service by adding more sex-symbols of 2k17 but I really wanna more legendary Warcraft heroes - Kel'Thuzad, Garona, Lothar, Grommash Hellscream, Cenarius, Deathwing and finally at least 1 Warcraft map - Arathi, Warsong and many other battlegrounds

That's the thing. People are kinda sick of Warcraft heroes. remember the end of the last year?

Look, I love Warcraft just as much as the next guy and I'd love for them to make more Warcraft heroes, but I think it's time to let some other game shine a bit. They already did a huge promotion for Warcraft with the "Warcraft month" event they had back in February/March, and we've had just about an assembly line of new Warcraft Heroes last year. Let some other games step in. It's called Heroes of the Storm, not World of Brawlcraft.

It'll be interesting to see how she's balanced.   In overwatch she basically has a 2nd life if her mech takes lethal, and a huge movement boost.     I don't see how you can possibly give her both, in addition to a ranged fire neutralizer...she'd be worse than Chen to kill.

Her kit could be AMAZING. High health/armor, a dive mechanic that might displace opponents positioning, steady damage, an absorb mechanic, and a huge zoning/wombo ultimate. Really curious to see how they make the 2 health pools work of her kicked out of the mech. Since that's a huge part of her in overwatch and they stressed keeping Genji true to Overwatch I'd expect it to remain.

Her biggest draw back will likely be her global game. Think Sgt Hammer levels of global problems.

If it was a Warcraft hero people would complain "Oh geez, ANOTHER Warcraft character. They should call this Heroes of Warcraft hur dur". Now we get another Overwatch hero and people complain "Oh geez, ANOTHER Owerwatch hero after they just released Genji hur dur".

There is no way to please everyone. I don't really like Overwatch, but I think it makes total sense they added another one, since this is an Overwatch event featuring a brand new themed Map.

Everyone seems to forget that in the Eternal Conflict event we got four Diablo characters in a row: Johanna, Leoric, The Butcher and Kharazim. So I don't really understand this fuzz about two Overwatch heroes in a row. Not to mention last year's Warcraft extravaganza.

Anyway, I'm really curious to see how D.Va will play out. I wonder if she will somehow function like Tychus' Comandeer Odin before the nerf (where he has two health bars).

Because we totally don't have enough damn Warcraft heroes, even though there's more of them than literally everything else combined.

Ayy Dva, hopefully she'll be like she is in OW, fun to play and with a sort of clutch ;3

Don't get why people are so bummy about what franchise the heroes are from. Anytime there's a hero from Warcraft (especially from one person I've noticed) there's an explosion of hate and sarcasm. Same for OW, not really for Diablo and for Starcraft people are like "wut?". I don't see why it's important where the heroes come from; it's not like that impacts play or the game or outcomes or anything. And who cares if it's mostly one franchise? That's obviously the one with the biggest pool to grab stuff from. It's not like the heroes here are original or anything (har de har) (maybe with the exception of Murky I believe). It just goes to show the b*tch-fest people love and how the toxicity of HoTs extends far beyond the actual gameplay.

I know, right? Blizzard themselves said they always take played feedback in consideration, but the process of making Heroes take many months. So people should stop bitching and be happy we are getting free content on a regular basis.

I find her to be fun to play as, not as fun to play against. At least avoiding the mech in HotS will be most likely easier than avoiding it in OW.

Welcome to MOBA games' communities in general. HotS community is still way better than the one of LoL, which goes to show how bad the communities of MOBAs are.

The heroes must be purchased with ingame gold, or, what a lot of people actually do, be purchased with real-life money. So, the updates aren't really free.

It's still free since you're not forced to pay real money for it. With the daily quest system giving easy gold, increased gold gain per match, and the chance of getting the Heroes from loot chests, it's pretty easy to get the Heroes now by simply playing the game. Not

Oh I'd believe that. My experience of LoL was 3 games and a lot of people being absolute maggots to each other (want to keep this polite). But die once and everyone in your team will attack you, being very aggressive towards lane (person mid didn't want jungler to clear wave and then go into jungle), just not the team game it's marketed as. (Incidentally I only stopped playing it due to issues with updating)

HoTs though (compared to Smite) has it's toxicity extending wayy past the game; like reddit and here turn into sour eggs when any hero from Warcraft or OW is released or if people self hype. Since it's a team game, I thought people would like somewhat "yay lets help and be logical" but it's way more limited than it should be. But those peeps are gems when you find them (thankfully a good few on here)

Yeah, this is very sad. The Blizzard fanbase has always been a pain in the ass, with stuff like "WoW is dead" and such. And like with everything in life, it is hard to please everyone; some people will always complain and be negative.

Thankfully, of all MOBAs, HotS has the least toxicity. The game has been marketed from the start that it's very team based, so any scrub that comes from LoL is gonna have a bad time thinking they can carry the match. Although a few Heroes CAN carry the game, it is usually at late stages and requires a lot of setup from the rest of the team (The Butcher comes to mind).

Its not about her being a sex symbol.  I think they are adding her and Genji because Overwatch is represented the least in HoTS and they need to even it out a bit so they can add more related things like maps and quests.

I was actually talking to a friend of mine yesterday about this. He has never played HotS but is a BIG Overwatch fan and even he said as he watched me play a handful of games that the game should bring in more Overwatch characters and one he suggested, without knowing, was D.Va. He also tried for about five games to convince me to buy Genji. lol

      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.

      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!
