Deckard Cain Hero Reveal at PAX East 2018

Recommended Posts

So...old man who can barely move.     To be fair he's survived Tristram, which is more than, well, anyone can say.

I figure he HAS to be a support (Deckard Kain the Bruiser/Assassin?) XD

So once again the 4chan stuff about Imperius was wrong.

At this point, I take it 50-50. They were right about Hanzo, Alexstrasza and Blaze

Doesn't have to be, they can change order as they wish. Starcraft franchise recently had anniversary, so I'm certain they changed Fenix's priority.
I view it as what will come, eventually.

Development issues with creating a character, QA reworks, ability debugging, any of this could change the release order. Or maybe they snoop 4chan too and just want to mess with people since they can't stop all leaks 100%

Except Starcraft's anniversary wasn't a surprise to anyone at Blizzard. They weren't sitting around with a bunch of heroes and a few weeks ago it dawned on them that they have starcraft's anniversary coming up. They probably knew for a long time that they wanted to do something for the anniversary and slotted fenix accordingly

"No Stitches, you fell into the toxic sli..... magic cauldron as a baby and you can't have any." - Deckard Cain 

I really really hope this is his interaction with Stitches.

I couldn't be more hyped for Cain. I've been waiting for him ever since the release of this game. And Blizzard overdid themselves; his kit looks absurdly fun to use.

This is the first new hero I've been excited about for awhile now. Cain looks suuuuuuuper fun, and Diablo is probably my favorite Blizzard franchise. I love everything about his skillset (Stay Awhile and Listen ult is fucking brilliant).

Is this the April's Fool character? When I saw some of his abilities that's all I could think of. The Horadric Cube just being a slow is pretty lame. Hopefully the gems are interesting.

April Fools was four days ago, what is Blizzard's schedule?

Otherwise, I think this my new main. Time to start practicing my Diablo lore and vocal cords.

There are many big names missing; Khadgar, Cairne Bloodhoof, Tirion Fordring, Mengsk (Valerian prolly), Warfield, Tosh from the top of my head and I've seen others heavily requested as well.

Personally, I'd really love to see Kaldalis; learning that he's that last surviving Zealot from LotV opening cinematic + that Reclamation video got me right in the feels

I also LOVE that they made a blend between his Diablo II (the blue cloak and white beard) and Diablo III (the overall posture, using a staff and carrying that shitload of scrolls on his back) incarnations. They really showed a lot of love in crafting him for this game.

I haven't been hyped for a Hero since Stukov. Good lord, I can't wait to play him. I think I'll even download the PTR this time.

      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!
