The Fall of King's Crest Comic

Recommended Posts

Blizzard released the third Heroes of the Storm comic titled Fall of King's Crest.

Issue #3 revolves around the conflict between the Lady of Thorns and the Raven Lord. The Horde unknowingly fought against Lady of Thorns in his name. Lady of Thorns awakens the Dragon Knight to help her defend her realm, but the Raven Lord controls him, forcing the Lady to kill the Dragon Knight. Ultimately, the Raven Lord claims the realm's singularity. Orphea did not participate in the battle. Later on, she blames herself for not doing anything.

Fall of the King's Crest is an event that will go live in Heroes of the Storm this week. If you missed the previous two comics, you can find them below.

The plot thickens. But I didn't see anything particularly cool this time. I feel the fall was quite sudden, I expect more of a struggle/battles/monologues. Art team did a great job again.

So the Dragon Knight on Dragon Shire is the 'King of Thorns'. That's pretty cool to know.

So maybe Orphea COULD be coming to the nexus at some point since 'Cain was right' 'Someone must fight this darkness...'. Although could just be bringing her more into the focus for the comics. 

And when are they gonna make a Ravenlord skin for Medivh. I mean he could easily be his doppelganger from an alternate dimension. He looks SO much like him already.

Perhaps one of new heroes at Blizzcon? So far, they always had two heroes to show, so Nexus original hero plus another from one of the other universes. If not that, then she might end like realm lords, announcer and maybe objective/boss on a new map?

Art in comic is pretty nice, but dialogues are rather badly written. Reminds me of Starcraft's last comic, which had same problems.

It's so ironic that Blizzard releases this comic at this exact date when we're celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival, which emphasise on family reunion. So while we're having a fun time with our families, the Lady of Throns' whole family dies. How pity.

Hmm... maybe. OR they finally do that rumored Mira Han & Matt Horner two hero as one duo like Cho'Gal. So kind of cheating a little 😛 And could do it with a skin for Queen of Thorns son & Daughter here from the comics too. Although they did just get smooshed to death like a page or two after introducing them. So probably not 😛

Hm. The story feels a little iffy, as if a child is mashing some action figures together and then remembering what he has actually done and trying to rewrite that. No character development, no interaction between characters, and just a lot of fighting and it all feels rushed to no end. Questions like "why is character X here" can be asked for just about anyone. All the material could be spread out over five times as many pages easily and the story would be better for it.

Are they actually dead though? If they died instantly to the crush there should be a lot more blood all over the place. Also the positions of their bodies (especially the brother) changed significantly in between page 9 and 13, most notably his head having shifted to the other side of his sister.

It might just be an inconsistency, it might be that they are heavily injured and dead by the time we get our next comic anyway, or it might be that they are alive and well the moment they are needed for the plot again.

Considering they are left nameless, I am inclined to believe they are dead/dying, though ^ .

Getting the post the way I want it to be sometimes takes a bit of time. Especially if the forum doesn't play nicely.

      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.

      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!
