21 posts in this topic

Blizzard released the first teaser of an upcoming Hero on Twitter. Chances are it could be Alexei Stukov.

It seems the next Hero after Malthael is from the Starcraft universe. We'll keep updating this post as new hints become available.

Hint #1

A high-res version of the teaser can be found here.

Stukov is one of the last Heroes, who haven't been released yet, in that 4chan's guy list from almost a year ago. So far, this guy has been 100% spot on on his "predictions" (aka leak).

It's... uhhh... pepperoni pizza? I have never been right when it comes to hero releases (not a single time), so maybe this time I will be right! It will be something like the D.Va teaser, where D.Va fought Diablo, who was the red herring (claw marks, fire particles and stuff). Now some random scientist is ordering pizza, with pineapples at the top, so the pepperoni pizza will come and save the day.

Or maybe I should read less low-quality fanfictions of Gravity Falls, and it's really going to be Stukov.

The last thing HL needs is another specialist (and all the bronze - gold players said "amen").

Given the text on the tablet and the desperate need for more supports, my hope is on Ariel Hanson.

Nope! It's actually infestius the infested marine!

Nope! It's Chuck Testa.

Considering how misleading the teasers usually are I'm quite certain it's a Larva.

There a huge gap between misleading and people seeing what they want to see

Wouldn't he play a lot like Morales though? Even if they give him a special trait, there's only so much you can do with a medic...

The teaser indicates "regenerative" powers of the infest. So I imagine whoever it is, the "healing" will have a special flavor to it that has to do with infesting them, maybe? Not straight healing beam.

Yeap. Most probably Stukov- though I bet nobody really saw D.Va coming.

I hope this proves to be more.. hopeful about Fenix eventually being brought- he is the latest co-op commander released, Alarak and Stukov were before him (but in HotS I'd prefer NOT his Purifier form- if so, make it a side talent/Heroic).

lol like the guesses here but sadly they are all mistaken, you can see the blueprint right there on the table, the next hero is 100% a metroid. You can see in the diagram it moving from its polyp phase to its medusa phase.

Considering that Lt. Morales has a Samus-inspired skin, makes sense.

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 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).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓

      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
