Blizzard today unveiled Imperius as the next Hero to join the Nexus.

A Diablo Hero is always a welcome addition to the game and the latest one is Imperius. He will be available for playtesting on PTR on the week of January 2. The patch will go live a week after. We're still waiting for the official Hero spotlight.

Yay, we got the fiery armored phoenix saint or whatever!

Jk. Never particularly liked the character, but I am interested in seeing his kit. I bet it will be a Bruiser. Also, wouldn't it be nice if we got the new hero at the same time as the revamp role system?

I imagine this announcement will make a lot of people happy. I wonder if he retains his cocky attitude. This should also calm people down a bit, after the recent HGC shitstorm.

Hopefully he'll get an announcer. I can't wait for him to yell at me all the time while failing in HL/TL 😁

Heh, can't wait for that too 😛

Also, great avatar pic!

To me Imperius had almost zero relevancy, not sure why so many people were hyped about him for so long, at least maybe his kit will be interesting. He didn't really do anything in the story, had very few appearances and acted like an *filtered*, not even close to being as good as Alarak. Similar with another heavily requested hero, Deathwing, who in the lore ended up as little more than pawn of Old Gods that heroes had to kill, yet he is also among these that many people want.

Edit: Apparently a-ss is auto-censored, really?

He's already half way there. He's kind of corrupt as it is 😛. I mean you saw the Pandemonium Fortress in D3. That place was all disjointed as ****. Like Tyrael said in the game, The Fortress takes on the aspect of it's master. So we know Malthael was all kinds of messed up in the head at that point 😛

one day remaining for the hero PTR launch and still, no spotlight reveal.

Hope Kevin is not kicked out of the heroes team in the recent developers move.

Was he? Thought he is still there, at least nothing announced (unlike with some others who were moved to different teams). Even if he is leaving, he can still announce them, as he also did SC2, despite not being on their team.

Ok, now people will shut their trap on every single Twitter post from Blizzard regarding Imperius... And then proceed to ask about Deathwing.

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓

      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
