We’re cranking up the heat in the Nexus with our newest Hero - Blaze, Veteran Firebat. Joining the roster in January 2018, Blaze is a dual-incinerator cannon wielding Warrior who excels at area-of-effect damage and locking down an area of the battlefield. Get ready to fire it up!

Hell yeahhhh! btw .. hate these new ranged warriors... if they are WARRIORS and battle enmies face to face why they're ranged... I just hope his ranges of abilities and basic attacks be Iike other warriors... I can't accept it if it be something far from other warriors like as Zarya who just craped MM for long time (however it's not fixed completely yet since MM puts zarya against tyrande and everybody knows tyrande is better for supporting than a weak shield with high CD)

  • btw OW warriors (zarya,Dva)just made me angry because they don't look like a real tank they don't look like a real support and they don't like a real assassins and make QMs unbalanced  and MM just puts them against REAL tanks,sups,assassins (have NO problem with TL since teams choose what they need) just hope this new SC hero be a real warrior (tank or brusier like most of them) not another fantastic pain in*** ^^/

I'm actually looking forward to this guy. There's something interesting about a front line character that will deny zones, utilize burns, possibly lowering armor (like the mercenary firebats), etc. 

 

Maybe a solid character to pair with Stukov of Malfurion who can back up his area denial with slow/silence areas of their own.

 

I'm curious about the extra skin he'll come with. Maybe a WoW golem type skin?

Finally! The Terran Warrior we've been looking for. Now we can have a full team of Tychus, Raynor, Morales, Hammer and Blaze! Like the other teams on paper they sound like they have some decent synergy too. Blaze can deny some area for people looking to attack a deployed Hammer.

A Golem Type Skin would be pretty neat. I just think all those Terrans look terribly boring... :-)

They simply look like trash bins with legs and arms and a somewhat oversized weapon :-)

We already had a Terran team if you used Nova instead of Blaze. Although it probably has too many assassins lol.

But then again, we don't know if Blaze is gonna be yet another assassin.

Finally!! Terran warrior :p although we also had some terran skins xD Terran ETC/Rexxar/Muradin

From the leaks i've seen, is going to be a warrior/bruiser with aoe dmg and not so high mobility, for balance issues xd

This is good news :D!

Looking forward to See his kit. Zone Control sounds interesting. Even tho I was hoping for  him to be a Specialist, but Warrior is also fine

I didn't count Nova since to me she's not really part of that crew, also yeah too many assassins. If you look in the description for the video, it actually does confirm that he is indeed a Warrior, and that he specializes in area denial.

A look on 2017Hots:

Blizzard added 8 assassins,4 sups, 2warriors,1 specialist

Universe: 5 warcraft, 6 overwatch,2 starcraft,2 diablo

so it was great idea to add a warrior from SC and I think next will be an assassin or spec from Diablo

and my only concern was that if firebat get brusier abilities this will mean that we got last main tank warrior about 2 year ago and it was dehaka here's list of warriors since dehaka(didn't count  varian since he can be brusier(fury),burst damage assassin(arms) and tank ..not just tank) :

Dehaka(main tank+brusier talent too)  29 March 2016

Zarya(half-support-brusier)  27 September 2016

D.Va(brusier) 16 May 2017

Garrosh(brusier who throws people) 8 August 2017

firebat ???? ????

well 2017 wasn't year of SC diablo and warriors .. btw we hope to see more from these on 2018..

Neither are Morales or Hammer, because they are soldiers of the Dominion, just like Nova herself

Actually D.Va, Zarya and Sonya are classified as Bruisers in the MM, so if your team lacks a true tank but has one of those, you'll rarely be paired against an enemy team with a true tank; they will either have one those characters or no Warriors at all.

Same for some Supports like Tassadar and Tyrande; if your team lacks a true healer but has one of those, you'll fight a team that either has one of these (and even a Medivh) or no at all.

I'm pretty sure Blaze will be a Bruiser, and possibly functioning similar to the Firebat mercs that reduce armor over time.

that's what I talk about... tyrande really heals however she isn't a true healer but she does good and is better than others,second one is tass who does better than Zarya with better shields which also got lifesteal,then it's Zarya and medivh who are really crap to hold a team with because of CD of zarya's shield and low amount.. and medivh just protects for a sec ,then it's aba who just has to ignore his good talents and picks just healing talents which still can't  heal much..

and about brusiers... I just remember many many times it put me (as butcher or some other similar assassins or spec like xul) against some brusiers like Sonya and our team had no warriors ... so Sonya can pick some heal shield talents but I'm just an assassin.. and worse thing is MM most of times count varian as brusier and puts him against assassins or brusiers however he can be a true tank

Yeah, that is why it is good that they add more Bruisers to decrease the chances of that kind of bullshit to happen. Because it is indeed very frustrating when the opposing team has a Zarya or Sonya and your team has no Warriors.

Regarding Varian, he is always classified as Warrior/Tank and is paired against teams that feature other specialized Warriors. Even though playing as him counts towards both Warrior and Assassin Daily Quest, he is still classified as a Tank in the matchmaking.

What pains me is that if he comes with a great skin, it will be only purchasable with gems :'(

I do not mind spending some real money for good skins but I can absolutely understand the pain it brings you. :-)

Yeah, I do to have spent a little money on the game. But I wish they could at least let us buy those skins with shards at a later date you know? Like when they drop the price of heroes and skins a couple of weeks after release. ^^

      Deathwing will be nerfed in a future balance patch. We're looking at more general nerfs across the board, mainly to Destroyer form, overall talent tuning, and some World Breaker buffs.

      Hey Calcaz!
      We get enough data, even with a massive ban rate. Of course, as more data comes in we’re more confident with where things sit, but we have always had enough data to make educated changes before the first balance patch after a new hero release. After the first balance patch, we always have an even more clear picture of where things stand since we have that much more time for data to come in.
      Balance patch is looking good!
      For Deathwing, more general nerfs across the board, particularly to Destroyer form. Also some World Breaker buffs and talent tuning.
      Can’t confirm dates. Confirming dates is the path to the dark side.

      It's been a while since we last heard of Kevin Johnson aka Cloaken. After leaving Blizzard, he briefly returned to narrate the Deathwing Spotlight, and recently, launched his own company called Harken Interactive. On YouTube, Kevin recently started The Listening Game Podcast, and in the first episode, he interviewed Lana Bachynski, a former Heroes Animator who now works on League of Legends at Riot Games.
      Lana Bachynski is responsible for bringing characters to life through movement. Her most notable work includes animation on Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm and StarCraft II. 
      Kevin and Lana talk about what made the Heroes team so special and why it was so difficult to leave.
