Heroes of the Storm Event Teaser: Jul 1

Recommended Posts

IKQISQn.jpg

The Echoes of Alterac event ends on July 9 and Blizzard teased an upcoming event on Twitter earlier today.

The latest content patch should hit PTR next week and we're getting Azmodan and Raynor Hero reworks. This is in line with the new Heroes of the Storm 2018 release schedule and we'll probably see a new Hero go live by the end of July.

  • We've had 48 days in between Maiev and Fenix patches. During that time, Blizzard reworked Medivh and Sonya.
  • We've had 49 days in between the release of Deckard and Yrel. During that time, Diablo and Lunara received updates.
  • Now, we're getting Azmodan and Raynor reworks that should go live during the week of July 10 and a new Hero should be released on July 31.

Fellow redditors are already discussing the teaser and Blizzard teased past events like Nexomania, so we can expect new skins soon! The image looks like a Goblin shredder of some sort. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!

Looks like one of Warhammer 40k Orkz clan symbols. Goblin perhaps? Blackfuse or Gallywix are the only notable goblins besides Gazlowe.

This looks to be a reference to any of the builder tinks of the goblin race , gazlowe was one , but we can get a minor character like trade prince steamwheedle of the steamwheedle cartel, which horde is trying to fix relations with . His shredders are superior in the goblin fraction , i don’t think it could be anyone else because prince gallywax would be diamonds or anything to do with currency cause afterall ..... time is money ... friend

"Waste land" like the where Deckard and Garrosh skins are from.

I would love to get more skins from this AU. I think it's either this or iron horde themed skins.

@Edit: someone over Reddit pointed to Mira Hann, with the glowing eye and Terran junker aesthetic. What do you guys think? She is already an announcer.

I think it could be a combination of these two things.

It will start the event with new skins for some current heroes from this 'wasteland/MadMax' realm. Which will get a name now with this event. And then at the two weeks into the event we get the new hero who will also come with skins themed to the new 'wasteland' realm. Which will be Mira Han & Matt Horner. Who's alt skins are the 'Queen & King' of the lands in that realm. (Not necessary the Realm Lords, but maybe. That could be cool too.)

And as we who visit this site pretty much everyday will know Mira & Matt will be sort of like Cho'Gall. Except that they are two separate heroes that have to be picked together and who's abilities play off each other. So two as one new 'multi-class' hero(s?). And it will come with new menu background like they've done lately. And hopefully finally come with a new PvE event themed brawl damn it!

So that's my guess 😛 🙂

I think if they go with Mira as a new hero they won't do another Chogall type hero where you need the other to be picked at the same time. Too few people would be up for that to make it worth investing in. The only way I can conceivably see them doing this sorta thing again is if they allow you to pick one and just get paired with someone playing the other automatically. Cho in particular is an awful experience to learn how to play because you need someone to tag along with you to suffer through your first few matches as him as you learn how he plays and adding a second hero like that would be rough

I soooo dig the W40k comments 🙂 TBH it was my first impression as well - although there's is no place for xenos - and heretics - in the galaxy.

As for goblins... I kinda don't see more of them coming. Apart from Gazlowe there's not that many notable ones in WoW. Ofc you have Gallywix, who is just a fat and ugly and wouldn't pair well with the shredders imo as he just sits in his pleasure palace getting more rich and fat (and ugly). Blackfuse on the other hand would fit quite nicely I admit. But then again - I don't think he'd be too different from Gazlowe...

Maybe they can make gallywix a aba kind of hero. But instead he just sits his fat ass on the core and he can upgrade the units and towers etc with gold he gets from his team killing heroes x) kinda like the trader concept on wc3 online battleships game.

That could actually work - but only if he stayed planted on top of the Core which would have to be remodeled as Throne or whatnot. There have been concepts of 'core-replacing' heroes for some time, although most of the time those concepts seem to be about the overmind IIRC 🙂

As far as Gnomes they usually look way less vicious and savage in their creations. This would IMO not go well with the sawblade thingy they teased. The whole thing just screams 'horde' for me.

Since Matchmaking in QM is great just picture a Team consisting of Cho'gall, Mira Han/Horner and Abathur. Best on one of the big maps. Should be fun 🤣

Indeed they experimented with that idea, Blizzard guys originally intended to make Ragnaros work just like this, he would serve as immobile hero replacing the core. It didn't turn out right, so they would rather avoid more "weird" heroes, Abathur and Cho'gall are most likely going to remain as only exceptions.

Mira as announcer says "Double the Mira double the fun". It sounds like unused line when she is selected both as hero and announcer, although that logo doesn't look like it belongs to her. At least it wasn't in Starcraft.

Now that you mention Rag, I recall having heard/read that discussion. So I guess you're right, no more funky heroes - not that I mind. There are more 'lost' or unused voice lines like that, that might hint at future Heroes. It certainly does hint towards mira at some point, but I just don't see anything in that picture - apart from the glowing right eye.

Apparently reddit found the 'winner' - it could be teasing Warlord Zaela. Eye and iron Horde stuff would match, and she's an orc. What are your thoughts?

      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!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Heroes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.
    • By Stan
      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
