Blizzard teased a new Diablo Hero both on Twitter and in the launcher. Three lit up candles can be found in Diablo 3's teaser and could hint at either Deckard Cain or Leah.

Update: Only one candle is lit right now in the launcher and Blizzard confirmed on reddit they won't be revealing a new Hero during the Showmatch from their HQ.

It could be Deckard. He might even have some of the abilities that Carbot had in mind for him. Something like a Town Portal for your allies.

Three candles?! Half life 3 confirmed...

I hope it's Cain. We are also due for a specialist/ pseudo support

I don't get how this is a teaser for a new hero, It is just a random trailer for the game showing images of stuff we have already seen and done, and they already announced the new hero long ago is going to be the Necromancer so why all the mystery over it?

Edit: oh nvm I didn't see this was for Heroes of the Storm my mistake.

If it is Leah I'll be really angry. It HAS to be Cain. With the moveset created by Carbot Animations.

I'm gonna play it safe and say it's a TLV skin. 

Totally safe. 3 candles, 3 vikings. Diablo TLV skin confirmed.

 

Buuuut anyways, the teaser in my opinion isn't neccesarily (what a word) for Deckard Cain. It could be. But it also could be a bad guy. At least Xul is already our necromancer so no new Nephalem.

- Deckard Cain (?)
- maybe Leah cuz you know, daughter of Diablo and possessed and sort of died but not really (so her comment in the teaser makes sense but you could apply it to almost anything)
- also: WE DON'T HAVE MALTHAEL YET in the nexus
 

But my bet goes towards Captain Rumford. What a guy!

Cain will be superuseless on larger maps. Cause, like, you know, movespeed.

Sometimes those teasers are misleading but I like the way they do these small things :)

That would be equally cool, especially since we haven't seen a TLV new skin since forever.

I'm pretty sure it's Cain. The whole scene gives that context.

But at the same time we've been trolled before with the D.Va teaser, which had NOTHING to do with her (Hanamura, claw marks on the clan's wooden symbol), but instead teased the new cinematic.

So I'm still placing my bets on the Candle Kobold. "YOU NO TAKE CANDLE!"

Possibly, it's just me because I'm not all that excited to see him in the Nexus, but still, I don't believe it's Cain.

It's Candle! The old wise Candle, semi-specialist, semi-support. It can turn the lights off, if you know what I mean.

I think people read too much into these trailers. All we know is we have 3 candles in a dark place. So people get into their head that the 3 means diablo 3 and the candles mean Cain or Leah cause similar candles were in the D3 launch teaser. Its not as if all the candles in bizzard games could look the same. If you are a WoW person you could say those are the candles in a crypt and they mean the next hero is going to be KT. Its just not enough to go on. Last trailer everyone saw some tiny sparks and swore the next hero was going to be Deathwing and we all know how that turned out.

Maltheal does seem like a better guess then Cain.

I'm kinda hoping it's the sexy spider chick voiced by Claudia Black. Cydaea, Mistress of Pain. Although I don't know what she would be other then a specialist like Azmodan or basically the Tomb of the Spider Queen Webweaver. So probably not her :p.

Hmm... Who else could it be from the Diablo series... maybe the Druid from D2 expansion? He's about the only one they haven't done player wise other then the assassin, and we totally DO NOT need another damn assassin in the game anyhow. Oh there is the Paladin. Who would be similar to Johanna but more about his aura buffs and debuffs like in D2 rather then a full on tank like the Crusader is. Other villains could be Mephisto. Belial hasn't been done either. Andariel would basically be Kerrigan so no need for her, but that could be a nice Diablo skin for Kerrigan. Leah would be pointless, she had no real powers shown. And she's the reason for the feminine Prime Evil version of Diablo skin. Only other one is Baal. Who looks like a slimmer version of Azmodan :p.

So other then maybe Cain, which just seems silly, Maltheal seems like a good bet in my book. Cain like Carbot's 'It'd be cool if...' would be fun and funny though :p and they do need to embrace being more silly then serious in HOTS to really stand apart from the rest of the MOBA crowd. So maybe :D

      Blizzard has fixed the issue related to placement matchmaking ratings. All players have had their placement matches reset and Performance Based Matchmaking has been turned off until further notice.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone,

      As mentioned in earlier forum posts regarding Matchmaking Ratings here and the follow up here, we have been working hard on a fix to address the issue affecting placement matchmaking ratings. After further investigation, we identified the root cause and have deployed a fix. We apologize to everyone who has been impacted by the rough start to the new ranked season.

      Once the hotfix is live in your region, we will re-enable matchmaking for Hero League and Team League. And although the issues we encountered were unrelated to the Performance Based Matchmaking improvements, we are reinstating Ranked mode with the Performance Based Matchmaking updates turned off. We want to make sure we’ve resolved all of the issues and that the ranked season placements are in a good place before we reinstate any new features. We understand many of you are very excited about the Performance Based Matchmaking changes and we’ll update everyone once we’re ready to turn them back on again.

      Additionally, to ensure the accuracy and fairness of this ranked season, we have decided to completely restart this season. That means all accounts, regardless of whether they were affected by this issue, will be reset. We understand that this is very frustrating, particularly for those who have already redone their placement matches. Once again, we sincerely apologize to our passionate and dedicated players who have been impacted by this unfortunate issue. Thank you again for your patience as we work to make things right. Ranked queues were temporarily disabled yesterday.

      Hi everyone,

      As many of you may be aware after reading a forum post we made earlier this week, we’ve been working to resolve an issue affecting placement Matchmaking Ratings (MMR) following the Ranked Season Roll on Tuesday. After investigating the issue, we rolled out a fix that we believed would resolve it, and also reset the affected players’ placement matches. 

      However, it’s evident that there is still unexpected behavior from placement MMR and we have been receiving reports that players are still being placed inaccurately. These placement issues are unrelated to the performance-based matchmaking update and we are working hard to determine the root cause and resolve this situation as soon as we possibly can. We sincerely apologize for the frustrations this has caused for those of you who’ve already embarked on your Hero and Team League journey this season.

      While we are working toward that fix, we also want to prevent as many players as possible from being placed incorrectly. As a result, we have disabled ranked matchmaking queues in all regions until we are confident we can solve the issue.

      We understand that disabling the ranked queues is less than ideal, and want more than anything to get you back in the action as soon as possible. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the best matchmaking experience we can, so we thank you very much for your continued patience as we work to ensure ranked play provides a fun and fair experience for everyone. 

      Until that time, feel free to jump into one of our other game modes, including Quick Match and Unranked Draft. We will keep you updated as we make progress on a fix for ranked play. Game Director Alan Dabiri took full responsibility for the issue. The latest update was massive and this bug persisted even after all internal and extended PTR testing.

      Hi guys,

      I just want to apologize to all of you regarding the Ranked mode issues we caused with this release. This was a massive update that included many changes across many areas of the game. We had a lot of internal testing and an extended PTR, but we still fell short here. There’s really no excuse. We need to do better, and I take full responsibility for this. The team is hard at work on fixing the issues, and once we have a fix deployed, we will re-enable the ranked game mode as soon as possible.

      I just want to thank you all for your feedback, passion, and most of all, patience as we work to make things right.

Blackheart appears immediately after the gates open, and accepts Doubloon turn-ins as usual. Skeleton Doubloon camps have been removed from the map.
