Those mounts :D

I can just feel the Mad Max vibe

I can assume that both Wastewalker Deckard skin and the Road Chariot mount are part of the Wastelands alternate universe that Mad Axe Garrosh belongs to. There is also the Road Boar mount to prove it.

i like the Johanna and some of the Nazeebo skins. Also the mount is nice. Can see my Garrosh or Leoric using it. Sad that a Nephalem Xul skin is missing.

either going to use the Carbot Nazeebo or Xul portrait too^^

Seeing all those pictures and emoticons...

 

 

Back in my day, games were gritty, not hello kitty's wonderworld.

Then you must be older than Pacman.

I of course mean within the context of the games themselves. Driving over pedestrians in Carmageddon wasn't followed by a :joy: emoticon unlock featuring the grandma you drove over. Kirby was still just Kirby, but when you're pit in an arena to murder eachother, you weren't expecting these:

I really wish they'd stop the release skin packs... I get it, Blizzard is a company and needs to keep the wheels going, but couldn't they stop selling all in the same pack? Most folks want 1 tint of a skin, not 3-5 as the only option.

Keep them as gems only and price them high individually to make the bundle deal seem more attractive, that'd be a better way to do this.

Beyond that, fine skins, Deckard is nice, and the mounts look interesting. Here's hoping they don't nerf the old man too much, as he frankly seemed pretty okay on the PTR currently.

About Cain and future nerfs, heads up that Rejuvenation Potion and Potion of Revival stack, so you can have area of effect extra health and mana regen. For those clumped together melee folks, or really coordinated teams.

Cool mounts, but I din't really understand where your hero will sit and put his legs on. Nice skins as well, specially those new tints.

@Edit: Also, am I the only one who saw Cain's face and beard on the front of the new mount?

      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!
