Horrific Prime Evil Diablo looks amazing.

Also, the sprays look very interesting, as they hint of possible upcoming skins:

0:56: upper left side. Pirate Greymane? Which transforms into a Hammershark?

0:56: upper right side. Pirate Sgt. Hammer on a deck ship with cannons?

0:56: lower left side. Pirate Probius???

1:00: upper right side. Pirate/Shark Dehaka?

If we get those skins in the future it will be awesome.

Recolors of the Storm. And "let's give Kerri even more skins/(skin variations) and 0 gameplay changes that she definitely needs." Seems legit

At least you don't have to spend real money on those anymore. And having more color variations of the Skins means higher chances of getting said Skins. I don't think this is entirely a bad thing. Sure, would be better if by unlocking one skin you'd get all color variations, but that would diminish the value of loot boxes.

Blizz is known for doing that. Take a look at WoW, where you have lots of mounts with slightly different colors.

This is all given for free, just freaking play the game. I agree, adding more recolors instead of new skins is meh, but complaining about more free stuff is kinda even worse IMO.

I'm not complaining about the free stuff per se (the new rewards system is the best in any game I've played so far and I'm pretty much a MOBA freak) but the oversaturation of them (if you read my post) and mostly that the Heroes who get them (some of them at least) are neglected.

The skins that come out are pretty high quality, no doubt about that. It's nice of them to deliver such content on a regular basis and making it more accessible. It's just that that they feel like a 'trap' imho (money or otherwise, though with the new system not much of the former; still however) since the Hero who gets them isn't in a good spot/hard to learn/not very rewarding or a combination of those. Like, aside from Kerri (who definitely falls under 1 and 2 imho and even 3) there's also Nova, who has gotten a lot of skins (and will keep getting) but balance wise, she's probably one of the worst Heroes right now, if not THE worst. She had a Talent Tree rework but that did little to nothing to help her if not making things worse. She's one of my most faves but I was really dissatisfied when she got the Widowmaker skin (she had plenty already + that pretty much rules out the possibility of Widowmaker coming as her own character- which she totally could imho since aside from being (hawt) female snipers, they have nothing else in common. Like, Raynor and Tychus are both in a Marine suit but play entirely differently). Right now, she's only good at pubstomping QMs and the like.

I know, the team that makes the skins is separate from the balance team but that...'lack of sync' (sort to speak) is kinda unnerving.

Ok, rant over :3

I don't think there is any correlation between the Heroes that get new skins and their placement in meta. Tracer keeps getting new skins and she is really good (annoyingly good). I think the devs just try to come with new skin ideas for the most popular Heroes. Nova might be in a poor state in the meta, but as a character she is really popular. That is why The Lost Vikings never got a new skin, because as characters they are not popular, regardless of their high winrate.

But I agree that the "skin distribution" is really poor at the moment. There are characters who haven't got a new skin in years, while other characters have way too many skins. I think the devs are trying to counter balance this a bit by adding more recolors.

Also, Nova getting the Widowmaker skin doesn't mean much. She got the Amazon skin but we still got the Cassia the Amazon as a playable character. Azmodan got the Azgul'dan skin and Gul'dan still became a playable character. I think Widowmaker surely could be included in the future, but not yet (personally I'd rather not since I hate Nova and having another sniper would be annoying, hahaha).

Believe me, I know of that dreaded popularity factor all too well in many vidya games. Makes sense from the devs side and as a company policy but at the same time, many players will probably be really unhappy.

There's this conspiracy theory that someone gets a cool new skin/avatar/whatever and then gets nerfed (intentionally) or he/she is bad to begin with (especially in LoL of Legends). I'm not 100% with this (tho some cases seem to be on point) just that, having a cool new skin doesn't help much when you struggle in-game and have a negative experience most often than not.

The biggest point against Widowmaker coming is that, since there's that skin now (that looks EXACTLY like Widowmaker or close to that) there would be some very significant clarity issues (2 characters, skins involved or not should never look alike that much). Haven't played Diablo at all so I don't know if some characters were pre-existing or were just 'made up' to represent the class but imho, the other 2 cases weren't as big offenders. I really hope Widowmaker does come, it would be really unfair for her to be just a skin (which goes for every character- like I'm really afraid the only way Mercy can come is as a skin for Auriel) and Overwatch isn't that rich in characters (not yet at least) as the other franchises.

Since you don't like snipers I guess Chromie and Li Ming aren't exactly your favorites eh? :>

The problem with Mercy is that she would be too similar to Lt. Morales in terms of gameplay. Mercy's abilities can be dissected into Auriel (ressurrecting) and Morales (healing beam), so there isn't really a point into adding her to the game; she'd be better as a skin.

Now Widowmaker, on the other hand, has a unique kit, with the grappling hook and venom mine.

Yeah, as someone who mains Support, snipers and stealthies are the bane of my existence, haha.

I know and that makes me really sad cause I love Mercy and I'm unable to play Overwatch atm because of toaster for a laptop...:/ (funny story, Blizz did throw me an invite for a beta weekend, "error no compatible hardware found" despite them collecting info on players systems beforehand- I got for HotS too and could play without (many) problems, and so I went to an internet cafe, couldn't really pass the chance to play).

Support main eh? Your kind is really rare these days lol kudos to you (I don't mind playing supp personally and in HotS pretty much everyone's viable with his own way to heal where you almost never see healer comps in other mobas cause either they need a ton of AP to scale or they're plain weak)

I was a main healer in WoW, so old habits die hard, hahaha. I started healing in WoW because there was no one else in my Guild up to it, and I started liking it more than DPS'ing or tanking. And healing in HotS is really fun because Support classes have their share of damage and utility other than just healing.

As a matter of fact, me and my buddies stomped a Quick Match yesterday using a comp of 5 healers: Auriel (me), Uther, Tyrande, Brightwing and Malfurion. Man, it was one of the best matches ever.

Naisuuuu, haha. I guess Tyrande went full damage  (even then there's overflowing light level 16 which I get pretty much every time)

Yeah, our Tyrande went with this build, if I'm not wrong. The opposing team was a premade as well, and I can tell by the results of the match that we've ruined some friendships. They started all cocky at the early match, often using dances and spray to taunt us, but then we squashed them so hard. It was on Battlefield of Eternity.

I never had so much fun in this game.

      Blackheart seeks revenge against the Commodore in this week's attack/defend battleground! Everyone starts at level 10, no other talents besides that are available. There's a small chance of all players being the same Hero. Play two games to earn a Loot Chest.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Assist a salty revenge-fueled pirate in his other-worldly quest to destroy the docks, or send him to a watery grave with the aid of some spectral cannonballs. This week’s Heroes Brawl is Blackheart’s Revenge, and no matter which side you take, it’s sure to be an explosive match!

      Rules:
      Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Docks. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Everyone will begin the round at level 10 and will be asked to choose a Heroic Ability. No other talents will be available. You will either be placed on the Attacking or Defending team and will be responsible for aiding Blackheart in his quest for revenge, or preventing the destruction of the Docks Attackers will be responsible for preventing Defenders from firing Cannons at Blackheart’s ship Defenders will gather Cannonballs and fire them at Blackheart’s ship via Cannons placed around the Battleground After the first round, teams will switch sides and the displayed health on Blackheart’s Ship will be adjusted to show the amount of Cannonballs the defending team must fire to beat their opponent’s score and win the round. The team to fire the most shots at the enemy ship will be victorious, unless both teams fire zero or the maximum of 5 Cannonballs, which will result in ties. Rewards:
      Complete two matches of the Blackheart's Revenge to earn a Loot Chest! Find out more about the new Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for the Brawl game mode.

      Alan Dabiri announced that he's leaving his current position as Game Director for Heroes of the Storm and he's moving on to another project at Blizzard.
      Alan Dabiri has been Game Director ever since Dustin Browder stepped down in December 2016. He thinks the game is in the right hands right now, as developers continue to deliver interesting new Heroes and events. He's transitioning to a new team within the company. We wish him success in all his future endeavors.
      Here's the message he left on the official forums:
      Blizzard (Source)
      In my 20-plus years at Blizzard, I’ve had the privilege of working on many awesome Blizzard games in roles ranging from software engineer to technical director to game director. Across my many roles and games, my experience working on Heroes of the Storm ranks among the best of my development career. I’ve witnessed Heroes’ evolution from a StarCraft II mod to the amazing game you see today. Heroes’ development has been fueled by the shared excitement of our team and all of you in the community, and the game we’ve built together is the game I play almost every night.
      One of the best things about developing Heroes is the fact that this team is not afraid to try new things while always striving to learn and grow. It’s been part of our DNA from the very beginning, and it’s through years of experimentation that we’ve hit our stride both as a development team, and as a game. This is possible because Heroes has an exceptional development team of both Blizzard veterans and fresh faces who are all highly engaged with the game we’re making, and the players we’re making it for.
      It’s in this spirit of trying new things that I want to let everyone know that a few months ago, I accepted an opportunity to transition off my role as Heroes’ game director to heed Blizzard’s call and begin a new adventure elsewhere within the company. The game director has always been one part of the overall leadership team that drives Heroes forward and it’s been a privilege to work among some of the best game developers at every level on the team all the way up to our production director, Kaéo Milker. Leaving a team and game that I love is incredibly difficult, but seeing the steady strength, creativity, and commitment that Kaéo and the design, engineering, and art leadership teams consistently bring to Heroes has given me more than enough confidence to make this decision. I trust that the game is in the very best hands and their work these past few months has only reinforced my belief.
      They’ve released awesome new heroes like Yrel, Whitemane, Mephisto, and now Mal’Ganis, while building on the themed content drops that let the team do fun things that only Heroes can do. They brought the smackdown (plus my favorite mount, the Luchihuahua!) with Nexomania, finally brought an epic slice of Azeroth into the Nexus with the Alterac Pass Battleground, and joined the Raven Lord’s forces with the Fall of King’s Crest. On top of that, the team has also released awesome reworks like Raynor and Brightwing while adding exciting updates like third ban and Team League improvements. With so many awesome content and feature updates, you can see why I believe that the team has brought us the best year of Heroes of the Storm so far.
      And they’re not done yet. Heroes has one of the most passionate and dedicated development teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and they have a ton of exciting new content in development. I can’t wait for you all to see what they have in store for the rest of this year and beyond. You can bet that I’ll be right there enjoying it with you as it’s released, too. I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Heroes is in a great place and I promise that it’s in the hands of the best possible people to continue driving it forward. Kaéo and the Heroes team are people who play almost every night who also happen to get to work on making the game what it is today. With our continued input and support, they’ll keep doing what they do best by making Heroes of the Storm the most awesome game it can possibly be.
      I just want to sign off by saying thank you to all of you. I’ve had an incredible time working on this game and seeing you bring the battlegrounds to life every day. I’m so grateful for the enthusiasm you’ve brought to Heroes and all the changes you’ve encouraged us to make. I know the team deeply appreciates the feedback you share, so please keep it coming—and as always, I’ll see you in the Nexus!
