Is Deckard Cain Next?

Recommended Posts

WY9cwF1.png

Redditor Spazzo965 noticed that Genji's homescreen has been replaced with a new one, hinting at a new Hero from the Diablo universe.

Datamining of the latest patch revealed a new homescreen. Blizzard probably wanted to hide it and instead of adding a new one, they simply replaced Genji's old background (.dds file) with what appears to be a background of the Tristram Cathedral in D3. Do you think the next Hero is Deckard Cain? Leah? Let us know in the comments!

The stained glasses are not really Diablo themed though and knowing Blizzard, this artwork could be a bait.

I would have prefered an Angel (Imperius pretty please?) or a Demon over good ol' Cain but well, why not.

 Is that kunai's cube sketched in the open book? Also,  the windows remind me of the portraits from the hanzo/alexstraza event.

He's in trouble then out of nowhere Cain decka-- MEI apears *sm4sh splash text* Hell freezes over! Continue with smash Esq video showcase.

If you look closer on the glasses, you can see figures which refers to: moon (left), dragon (middle), and sun (right).

In my opinion, it's clearly related to the dragon knight map.

Maybe it's going to be the introduction of items and he'll be the vendor. That'd be... interesting. 

Imo, I'd prefer if they make something like the rune system in LoL. It can open many flexible paths for some heroes :D

No items is why I switched from League to this, I do like the idea of the rune system,  but I don't want items in heroes. Why didn't you come to the alter ally??? Sorry, had to buy...

I stood a while, I listened. No regrets. I'm an old DII fan, i'm suprised I never came across this before. It's actually pretty good music.

Look at table engravings on Deckard and tease picture, they are same. It's Diablo  Hero.
Not to mention lot of books and candles.

The pattern of the stained glass is the same seen in the Alexstrasza trailer. So we can assume that the place depicted in the picture and the trailer are the same.

the open end of the crescent moon is facing right both on the outside, and inside. Same with the dragon, who is facing left in both pictures. It's either not the same building... or the people who made these images don't understand how stained glass works.

I think it's the latter. Not only that, but from the outside the Sun King should be on the left and the Moon Queen on the right.

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!
