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.

      We present our ninth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Garrosh patch of August 2017.
      Our ninth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of August 2017 is here!
       
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Garrosh patch. The goal if 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
      As stated above, tier lists are easy to mistake for gospel. As new strategies are discovered and experimented with, so changes the perception of the relative strengths of each hero. Tier lists still prove to be useful as a snapshot of player expectations in terms of drafting. Although it is generally considered preferable to focus on high tier heroes (Prime and Core tiers), it is important to note that Heroes of the Storm's wild character and map designs make it so that any given hero's tier position is prone to fluctuate depending on the situation at hand.
      One classic example of such is that of Kerrigan on the Infernal Shrines map. Although we currently judge her to be a mid-tier hero, her drafting priority shoots up to first-pick or first-ban material on this specific map due to the nature of its objective. Certain heroes also synergise so well with each other that the sole fact of having the opportunity of drafting them together is generally enough to increase their potential. Tassadar and Tracer, for instance, are generally nightmarish to deal with for many. There are too many examples of these interactions to reasonably produce here, but we invite you to consult our guides to know exactly where and when each hero shines. The guides have been linked in the lists below for your convenience - just click any of the hero names to access them.
      A ↑ next to a hero's name means its tier list position has increased since the previous month whereas a ↓ means just the opposite. Additionally, a + or - sign indicates short-to-medium term predictions (which is to say, about a month) for tier increase(s) or decrease(s), respectively. These are often updated after significant balance patches and/or when clear trends are emerging.
      If you're newer to the game, also consider visiting our glossary for a comprehensive list of discrete Heroes of the Storm terms.
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak  Genji Uther   Stitches↑ Greymane↑ Tassadar↑     Malthael     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 Falstad Auriel Nazeebo Dehaka Gul'dan- Rehgar Sylvanas Diablo+ Li-Ming Stukov Xul↑ E.T.C.↑ The Butcher↑     Garrosh (new!) Valla     Sonya Zeratul     Varian (Tank)                       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 Artanis Alarak Brightwing Abathur Chen Cassia↑ Kharazim Azmodan D.Va↓ Chromie Li Li Zagara+ Johanna↓ Jaina Lt. Morales Probius Leoric Kael'thas Lúcio   Muradin Lunara Malfurion↓   Tyrael Ragnaros Tyrande   Zarya↓ Samuro       Thrall↓       Tracer↑       Varian (Damage)-       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 Cho'gall Cho'gall - Gazlowe↓ Rexxar↓ Illidan   Medivh   Kerrigan↓   Murky   Nova   Sgt. Hammer   Raynor       Valeera↓       Tychus     Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They are generally 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.
       
      Bottom Tier
      The Lost Vikings Bottom 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.
       
      Metagame assessment
      Greetings. Regulars may have noticed that the changes featured in this month's list have been more aggressive than usual. In essence, I feel like a clear metagame is finally begin to emerge after a slew of important changes, making it easier for me to pinpoint notable trends. And so, the result is a volatile tier list that should be extremely stable next month. Shall we begin?
      I like Garrosh quite a bit, and I can't help but feel that the combined novelty and high skill cap skew his win rates towards the bottom of the roster. Case in point: his Master level win rates are nearly 12% higher than his Bronze level win rates. This is a case of Medivh all over again; however, whereas both Garrosh and Medivh did start at 30-something-percent win rates, Garrosh has been steadily climbing over the week. Both Diablo and Stitches are currently very popular picks, and Garrosh provides similar utility through his Groundbreaker + Wrecking Ball combo. Talents to watch out for are undoubtedly Warbreaker (reduced cooldown on Groundbreaker, level 1) and Intimidation (40% reduced attack speed on targets hit by Groundbreaker, level 7), which allow Garrosh to neuter basic attack reliant heroes much earlier than other heroes can. Into the Fray (can use Wrecking Ball on allies once every 30 seconds, level 7) is also an interesting one as it gives Garrosh his own version of Cleanse and  the ability to say 'hey, you're mispositioned, stop it', which should come in handy whenever an ally is, well, not standing where they should be. It also breaks Lamb to the Slaughter on top of a few other nasty heroic abilities, which is great.
      Stitches has finally ascended to godhood, and although I was slow to give him a seat in the core tier, repeated high level hero league bans and a high amount of tournament play speak for themselves. As stated last month, the Slam build remains an easy way of topping the damage charts all while being difficult to kill. Gorge has also seen an upsurge in popularity, and particularly on maps where combat tends to happen close by fortifications, such as Dragon Shire, Tomb of the Spider Queen, Towers of Doom, et cetera. Couple this with Falstad's Mighty Gust, and you have a game winning combo that isn't all that difficult to pull off.
      I don't have much to say about Greymane that isn't self-obvious; Cursed Bullet is a great choice in a meta where healthy tanks are popular, though Go for the Throat is also re-emerging for blowup team compositions, thanks to its reliable damage and gap closing feature, on top of its ability to reset.
      To shoehorn last month's tier list again, I made a snarky comment about Tassadar always being either too strong or too weak. Right now, he enables two borderline heroes–Illidan and Tracer–on top of providing flexible heroic ability choices for both more defensive and blowout team compositions. His versatility just makes him never feel like a bad pick, and Oracle keeps the Zeratuls at bay as a bonus.
      E.T.C. is this month's surprise as players sift through forgotten heroes to solo tank, provide potential mapwide mobility through Stage Dive, and just generally provide reliable crowd control. You'll note a sore lack of interruption from a lot of high tier picks as well, making Mosh Pit about as good as it'll get.
      We haven't seen The Butcher be more than a one trick for nearly two years now, but the brute is back in force, thanks for buffs several players have misinterpreted as nerfs. I suspect, however, that some of his newfound success may be due to players having some difficulty adapting to his new gank-heavy playstyle and generally counterpicking him. Shall the Brightwings, Cassias, and Li Lis of the world rise up to the challenge?
      Xul has continued to perform well, and although he is the second least popular core tier hero (right behind Zeratul), he will keep on being effective on Blackheart's Bay, Dragon Shire, Gardens of Terror, Infernal Shrines, and Towers of Doom simply due to the importance of having a strong split pusher on these maps. Just make sure you go for Skeletal Mages, which tend to block a lot of those abilities strong tanks currently rely upon to get picks, on top of being generally disruptive.
