Developer Comment: For a long time Abathur has had a unique place in Heroes, being a powerful force at high level play while having a relatively low win-rate across the board. These changes are meant to spruce up his talents while streamlining his gameplay and introducing more counter-play to the hero. CarapaceCarapace, particularly with the Sustained CarapaceSustained Carapace talent, created some awkward gameplay where it was much more efficient to use SymbioteSymbiote on cooldown, even when the desire was to stay on one target, due to the cooldown refresh that it gave CarapaceCarapace. In order to clean this up, Sustained CarapaceSustained Carapace is baseline and the cooldown of CarapaceCarapace has been reduced, so Abathur no longer has to continuously remove CarapaceCarapace to be efficient. In addition, Abathur’s Locusts are now more potent, but they last for a shorter duration, meaning Abathur players will be more rewarded for positioning themselves aggressively and punished when they overextend too much.

Developer Comment: Ana came to the Nexus during the ‘Quest Revolution’ where we were adding them in as many places as we could. We have learned a lot since that time, so we spent some time re-designing and re-organizing Ana’s talent tree. Bringing Aim Down SightsAim Down Sights into her base ShrikeShrike functionality gives us a design solve for the powerful yet flawed Piercing DartsPiercing Darts quest. The rest of the talent changes and shuffles were directed at opening up some new builds while keeping all of her current beloved capabilities!

In Europe (so no patch yet), but some people on reddit have posted that several legendaries had their prices reduced to 1200, and epics to 300. Even previously gem-only skins are now unlockable as separate tints with shards or gems. Overall this patch is looking great! Also, thought this time we aren't getting a cinematic, yet here it is.

The new pricing is (source) :

Common (40 shards, no gem equivalent) Example: most Emoji packs, portraits

Low rare (75 shards, 120 gems) Example: (all?) master skins

High rare (100 shards, 160 gems) Example: Frost Wyrm Arthas

Low epic (300 shards, 250 gems) Example: Fel Reaver Blaze

High epic (400 shards, 350 gems) Example: Az'guldan

Low legendary (1200 shards, 600 gems) Example: Buccaneer Falstad

High ("True") legendary (1600 shards, 750 gems) Example: Azmodunk

The pre 2.0 "super legendary"-type skins, like Mecha Tassadar (or from post 2.0, Prime Evil Diablo is an example) were all converted to high legendaries, while the 'shittier' ones (such as Mecha Dehaka) were converted to low legendaries.

Epics and rares were also divided, but this divide isn't as obvious. The amount of "features" (such as voice over, themed abilities/animations, etcetera) seem to factor into their pricing now, which is very nice.

Also, the +50% shard price on launch is still the same, so for example the Resistance Skins are all actually 1800 shards, so they are "low legendary", or 1200.

In one of the AMAs the art developer said that making a legendary skin (I think he meant the real-deal-2400-shard-actually-legendary-looking-skins) takes pretty much the same amount of time spent on a completely new hero.

In the Viper returns bundle all of the skins are there expect for the ''Cryo'' ones. They added the badlands to the collection but Cryo skins are not there. Who should I contact for this?

I can see  other players names in the ranked draft is this intended or bugged?

On the enemy team or your team? Cause if it's the enemy team then that sounds like a bug. Enemy team names should be hidden till after drafting is finished.
