Yesterday, we wrote about a new Hero teaser and it seems the next Hero is from the Warcraft universe. In the teaser we can see the Dark Portal and a shadowy figure with green eyes.

The hottest candidates now are Grom, Lady Vashj, Maiev and Ner'zhul. Let us know what you think in the comments below :).

Honestly, I have the feeling it might be Highlord Kruul. Some of the features (as unclear as they are) within the portal look rather demonic. That may be just me seeing things though.

Keep in mind they already said MORE famous that stukov, and anyone that played the Heart of the Swarm was forced to know of Stukov decently well. He even had his own level you controlled him as a hero unit.

To me this means that a hero has to be known even if you barely play the game. I'd expect someone in multiple warcraft expansions or in WC3 and WoW. Not sure they would have gone with the Portal for Maiev. Could be either of the other two, although Grom should have red eyes I thought. Too much demon blood and rage.

 I believe it will be Kil'Jaeden.

He died in the current patch in WoW and was the big bad guy for a long time. Associated with both Outland and Azeroth.

Matches the "famous guy" definition. And also - when Varian died in WoW, they put him to HotS. Might do the same with KJ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Clearly it's Millhouse Manastorm

You joke... but DAMN do I want the voice line "I'm gonna light you up sweetcheeks!" in this game soooo badly. So many quality lines. Game-play might leave something to be desired...

"Lowly? Nobody refers to the mighty Millhouse Manastorm as lowly!"

Q: Make a threat to target opponent 

W: Throw several insults in a circle around you

E: Ruuuun!

In all seriousness, to anyone who's watched Wronchi animation or played Dota 2...it's Enigma, no question.

Don't tease me with this...

My Gold would be on Kazzak if I had to place a bet.

It's going to zoom out slowly and then pan to a shot of a painting of the Dark Portal on the wall of a room in Dalaran, which used to belong to Kel'Thuzad and then it will suddenly jump into the future and he will be there as a lich. 

Genius, no?

I place my bets on either Gamon or Haris Pilton.

To be MORE famous than Stukov, Maiev is undoubtedly the most likely candidate. Lady Vashj is also likely but I wouldn't go so far as to say she's bigger than Stukov. 

Another candidate, although questionable, would be Kil'jaeden. He had a huge impact on the events leading up to the destruction of outland and the corruption of the orcs. It could be him, but I believe Maiev is probably the most likely hero out of the three I've mentioned.

If the character is supposed to be clearly more famous than Stukov, which I assume, becauce I doubt that they would bring that up if the hero was only slightly more famous, then I have to doubt that it is Vashj or let alone Ner'zhul. You really have to know a few things about WoW to have heard of these. Maiev would be possible, though amongst the ones you listed I think Grom would be most likely.

Even though my bet would be on Jaraxxus, because he really is famous and popular due to his Hearthstone card and the memes that came with it. Manastorm would be awesome too though! ^.^

Just hoping for one of the Burning Legion demons. Out of all the factions in Blizz games i'm just amazed they still don't have a single full blooded WoW demon in the game. And they have so much to work with from in that category.

What are you talking about? Jaina has been in the game for ages.

Real talk, though. I wouldn't be surprised if the next Hero is Kil'jaeden, considering that Gul'dan has voice files of interaction with supposed Legion-related characters, where he says: "The Legion is here, my plans will have to accelerate."

Didn't realise these existed - that could definitely be a cool interaction to have in the game and he would fill an interesting slot. I do wonder how they would make him different from Ragnaros/Azmodan, though. With a being that is that powerful but acts as a commander... You'd expect him to just be another minion hero or to do his whole "half-body" thing like we saw him in Sunwell.

He does also look a bit small for KJ.

Similarly, Illidan supposedly has dialogues with Maiev for HotS too...

      The first ranked season of 2018 starts during the week of December 12 and there's a new set of rewards that you can earn by playing ranked games in the coming months.
      With that said, Hanzo should go live on December 12 as well.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Season Roll Dates
      2018 Season 1 will begin as soon as our next patch is available for download in each region throughout next week. Check the start and end dates below and make sure you’re able to dive into the rankings as soon as the season rolls.
      EVENT DATE 2018 Season 1 Start Week of December 12, 2017* 2018 Season 1 End Week of March 6, 2018* *Exact date may vary slightly by region.
      Ranked Play Updates
      Along with the start of 2018 Ranked Season 1, we’re introducing performance-based matchmaking to all matchmaking modes in Heroes of the Storm.
      Performance-based matchmaking will help our system better evaluate individual players' in-game performance during a match, and adjust how much their rank and matchmaking ratings (MMR) increase or decrease at the end of that game. If players perform beyond expectations for their current MMR, the system will award more when they win, and subtract less when they lose. As a result, players will reach ratings that accurately match their skill level more quickly than they did in our previous system.
      There's more to the matchmaking improvements we're introducing, such as how the system differentiates highly-skilled play from one hero to the next. Be sure to read our in-depth blog on performance-based matchmaking to catch all the details before you jump into ranked play—or any matchmaking mode—next season.
