Well... they do win on famous. A villain in 2.5 expansions kind of has the name.

I'm not overly excited for him though. Curious if he's a warrior or assassin (probably a bruiser either way...) and how different he is from Smash Varian. I feel like most of his unique mechanics might already be in the game... Breserker (Zul'Jin), Smash (Varian), Whirlwind (Samuro/Sonya), hamstring (butcher)...

Maybe they find a way to really make it work, but I don't know how they make another unique character from such a traditional source.

He's obviously a warrior (he even represents the class on Hearthstone!).   My guess is he'll have Gorehowl and most of his moves will rotate around its use.     They may bring in some of the moves from when he was a boss in Siege, like his slow but powerful smash and whatnot, we'll see.

Unlike most people I really like Garrosh, but I feel like we already got a lot of orcs in the game already. Honestly I was hoping for something more cool and unique. Then again, they release so many heroes that it's generally not a big deal if you don't like the newest one. Just wait for the next month! ^.^

Anyway, Lok'Tar Ogar!

I was hoping for Grom tbh. It'd be a real dick move if they made a Grom skin for Garrosh ( like they did with Widow and Nova)

Yes, as much as I like Garrosh, Grom I like even more! ^.^

Not all hope is lost on Widowmaker though. After all, Nova also has an Amazon skin. ^-^

Fair point. Carbot did a video on Widowmaker abilities.

Another Orc and not a single Draenei. Talk about diversity, eh, Blizzard?

Regardless, I'm curious to see how he will play.

Im stoked, Garrosh is my favorite character in WoW lore, can't wait to see his abilities

I'm calling a Y'Shaarj transformation somewhere in that move pool

I was really hoping for Maiev or Akama. In this situation I think that Grom should be 1st in Nexus. He is more epic even if Garrosh is more popular in recent 4-5 years... And Grom should have Gorehowl not this Sha-touched pseudoWarchief....

Totally dissapointed by Garrosh as next hero...Before any hints as many i wanted Kel'thuzad to come together with new HS expac. After hint counted that maybe it will be Maiev. But no, its broing orc that wont make anything new as warrior comparing to rest of characters with this type.

I'm okay with Garrosh as next hero only because I will be able to smash his face. (Oh, only if Cairne was available as a hero)

I've been thinking for a long time how Garrosh could be in HOTS, so the abilities he could have could be the next ones:

1 Mortal strike as a rage spender /IDK like 20 rage and no cooldown.

2 Rend as a DOT which generated rage with 3 secs cooldown and stayed for 10 sec.

3 heroic throw as a middle-long distance ability that slowed enemies so Garrosh could go hunting them down 7secs cool down.

4.1 (first heroic) "empower Gorehowl" that Garrosh made Gorehowl got infected with Y´shaarj "soul" that increased his damage like 30-45% for 7 secs. And like 80 secs cooldown.

4.2 (2nd heroic) "Heroic Leap"  a copy-paste from wow ability. maybe 20 secs cool down with a long range. This would give him the mobility he wouldn´t have. A 20-lvl talent that gave him a 2nd charge of heroic leap and gave Garrosh 15% velocity for 5 secs so he could escape from his enemies or chase them

 

As mechanics he would have rage like wow´s warrior, that would mean we would not need to refresh his mana, so he could have a longer stay at the front line. He would have like 100 rage, which would be generated by auto attacks and rend damage. This would be very viable because rend would have 3 secs cooldown so Garrosh could spam it on every enemy's team enemy.

Thanks for reading.

I actually think he might be made similar to how Sion is in LoL - I wouldn't mind that at all.

Pretty hyped on this one, even though I was expecting (and would have preferred) Kil'jaeden. 

Let's see what they can do with him.

I would have just preferred to see something new added in regards to the actual playstyle. With so many standard warriors (Sonya, Muradin, Varian), there isn't much wiggle room when it comes to design. I'm hoping they get it right, but it's going to be tough.

There is Chromie. Sure, she is actually a Bronze Dragon, but still in Gnome form regardless. Also, Gelbin Mekkatorke is on development for 2 years or more.

So... you do realize you basically just described Sonya, most of her abilities in some form before or after some talents, and her trait too, right?

      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.
