I like how Chromie now brings a lot of utility to the team instead of raw damage. The new functionality of Time TrapTime Trap is very impactful, as essentially allows Chromie to "Ice Block" herself and allies, which is a pretty big deal. And "Blessing of the Bronze" is simpy bonkers of a late game talent.

Lúcio is now the best Healer in the game, hands down. His rework is insane, which at the same time makes me sad because he outclasses the vast majority of other healers without effort. On the other hand, more love to Healers, hell yeah!

 New Lúcio is stronger than he used to be (and a lot stronger, too), but no way he's going to be the best healer. He still has too many weaknesses that just get punished too hard.

Lately all Hero reworks made them substancially more powerful. Sylvanas, Stitches, Ana... None of them were OP though; neither does Chromie's. Now Lúcio is a whole new talk.

Chromie totally become different hero at all. From release until now, lose so much things while only give a few to compensate back.

Early: lose long range, stack, dmg. Gain time stop reset, time trap cast range.

Later: lose long range again, stack, dmg. Gain bonus attack after Q. Reveal of W hit area.

Now:

Lose stack and dmg.

Spell cooldown increase

W mana increase.

Time trap reset and cast range gone plus cooldown reduce also gone. Denote make it hard to stop those genji E and butcher charge which last time guarantee can stop. Denote also denote all 3 together rather than can choose which one which make that talent is useless. Work on teammate which will cause those troll/spoil player keep denote on teammate and make them caught by enemy. Time trap talent last time split into 3 tier and now become 1 tier to choose either one plus some take out. Time trap slow 35% become slow 25% only and duration from 4 sec to 3 sec only.

Temp loop range nerf.

Here and there range nerf. (30 sec cooldown already make this hard to use and now still nerf the range)

Bye Bye gone.

 

Gain echo and also 1 more echo for talent one.

W no longer able to see by enemy, W got 3 hits so it can hit more heroes.

Time trap can work on group if all near rather than hit on 1 hero only. Time trap can buff teammate 25% move speed or 20 armor. Time trap can reduce enemy 20 armor (Anyone can test it work on big vehicle? Dragon/Robot those that can pilot by ppl and also can time stop by time trap)

Time trap also can use to save teammate from pyro/triple tap if you act fast.

 

With talent "A Proper Greeting" gain 25 % dmg.

Gain/Lose: Q able to hit unit which also unit can save enemy hero from getting hit by Q. Same as structure can save hero but also can dmg by Q with 50%

Gnome Speed Ahead! increaes hp and mana regeneration and 20movespeed.

The most big gain is Blessing of the Bronze-10% movespeed and reduce cooldown of basic ability for whole team.

Chromie from hero hitting and zoning type become 1/3 of pusher, 1/3 of dmg, 1/3 of support type.

From a few build path become only 1 build path for this version.

Talent 1-Once Again the First Time . This should be the best to choose as 2 echo and 1 chromie will give more dmg. Deep Breathing not so good as W nerf with high cooldown and reduce dmg.

Talent 2-Time Troubles will be the best for most situation 20 armor for own while reduce enemy 20 depend on the usage for assault or defend. Second choice will be Chronic Conditions to reduce opponent speed while give teammate speed to chase and flee.

Talent 3-A Proper Greeting, now got so many hero can stun slow root. That 25% can apply in most fight. Other 2 cannot compete with it in this tier.

Ulti should be slowing sands better because it can work with 25% dmg apply to slow plus that is the good zoning tool left for chromie.

Loop range nerf is a big hit while fast cooldown for that period can be good for certain situation. Just focus on fast cooldown and spam in fast with 3 ability to gain benefit. 1 of the use can be when opponent got medivh, just cast loop on anyone, he will waste protection on that person while you spam all dmg to other on that time. Use it as trick tool rather than focus tool.

Talent 5 Gnome Speed Ahead. 20% movespeed is the only escape way for chromie to run from diver. Time Out useless become can use time trap for time. (Only 2 sec of delay but if you expect enemy coming, you should put time trap behind you early ago so that you can denote when you flee.) Here and there range too short and cooldown still 30 sec. If make it 10 second and range got 20, then it can make use with talent 1 which got 2 echo to choose.

Talent 6 the best is Blessing of the Bronze. Then follow by Piercing Sands. Then follow by Unravelling.

Piercing Sands [Q]

  • Sand Blast now pierces all enemies hit.

Blessing of the Bronze [Passive]

  • While Chromie is alive, her all allied Heroes gain 10% Movement Speed and their Basic Abilities recharge 30% faster.

These 2 are gonna be interesting. The piercing sands will give her a good waveclear imo and the latter one can cause for some serious team battle epicness and combo potential if it stacks with stuff like nanboost. 

Excited to see where this will go

I'd call it anything but scary. Immortality for heroes affected by his aura for 1 second unlocked as lvl 20 talent, what a joke. Don't need to be pro to understand that it has no uses at all. Yeah and if someone will try to give the shitty examples of countering Chromie, Kaelthas's Pyroblast or Kelthuzad and so on, think about Medivh, who doesn't have to be 20lvl to do the same thing to begin with.

In general, as a person who plays mostly as healers (played Lucio a lot too), it is funny for me to watch those "Lucio is the best healer after rework" comments since nothing was really changed except for the Q talents and he actually got nerfed in everything - both healing, utility and survavibility. His healing from w got nerfed. Remember that passive shield Lucio gained forever when changing track from W? Yeah, now you have to hit enemies with Q to gain shield for 7 seconds. YAAAAY

Both reworks look amazing, kudos to the devs again.

Chromie is now more of an enabler, specially since she is not able to delete heroes by herself, even with Temporal LoopTemporal Loop. Those new Time TrapTime Trap are very cool, I expect some amazing saves by good players. I am sure Blessing of the Bronze will not get like that to live servers, it's simply too broken. I love Piercing SandsPiercing Sands, but would never pick it against BotB.

I expect some Lúcio nerfs too, but right now he is the most fun hero to play for me. Damage Lúcio is here, High-fiveing people to death at lvl 20. Summer Anthem seems very niche. The only use I can think of for 1,5s unkillable is to give you time to drop you Sound BarrierSound Barrier.

      There's currently no release date for the teased D.Va rework. It will come some time after Deathwing.
      In July, Heroes developers teased a rework to D.Va with the following changes:
      D.Va's Mech Mode will be changed to only suffer Movement Speed reduction while Basic Attacking or channeling an ability; Her Defense Matrix [W] will gain the ability to be retargeted for a short time while it's active; The Big Shot [R2] (Heroic Ability) will be baseline in Pilot Mode. D.Va will receive a new Heroic called Micro Missiles. Based on how her Ultimate work in Overwatch, we can assume that she will fire a barrage of small rockets that detonate on impact, dealing damage in a limited radius around each explosion.  Teased D.Va Rework
      Blizzard (Source)
      Based on the Developer AMA from July 2019, she can opt into a solo-laner bruiser build, a team-support front-liner build and a pretty ridiculous self-destruct/pilot build, with lots of interactions between these options. The devs also briefly outlined some changes to her abilities and talents:
      Her Mech Mode will only suffer a Movement Speed reduction while Basic Attacking or channeling an ability, not at all times. Defense Matrix can be retargeted with a short cooldown while it's active. Big Shot [R2] is now baseline in Pilot mode. D.Va has a new Heroic Ability called Micro Missiles. Her rework is coming at a later time after Deathwing and they don't have a release date set just yet.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We currently do not have a release date set for D.Va's rework, but we will let the community know as soon as we are able. ?

      Gareth from the Into the Nexus Podcast had a chance to talk to Kyle Dates and Brett "Daybringer" Crawford about Nexus Anomalies.
      Check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub for more interviews and news!
      Interview Highlights
      They wanted to educate the player base at the same time Deathwing is hitting, that's why they invented Nexus Anomalies. The XP Globes improve solo laning, which has become stale over time. Nexus Anomalies, in general, is a new system that allows them to be more flexible with typical gameplay updates. The goal is to have Nexus Anomalies coming out with the Season rolls (once every three months). They want them to be focused and will listen to the community and collect feedback. They have a list of about 20 Nexus Anomalies that they want to bring to the game. One of the Anomalies they've tested internally revolves around bringing back Tower Ammo, but even after speeding things up, it took too much time for Towers to reload, which felt generally bad for the game, so they decided to scrap it. Another Anomaly thing they tried was turning wizards into sappers which is something the community's asked for a whole bunch, which delivered the globe to the enemy sometimes. They're overall happy with the cadence now that there's more breathing room in between updates. They're not developing any new Battlegrounds right now. Blackheart's Bay and Haunted Mines are still being internally tested and they still haven't figured out how to fix them. Interview VOD
