Deathwing Hero Leak

Recommended Posts

Deathwing has been accidentally leaked as the next Hero to join the Nexus. The reveal starts at 10:30 AM PDT on Twitch. Hero Designer Kyle Dates and Live Game Designer Adam Jackson will sit down with Trikslyr and Jhow to show off the first gameplay of the Worldbreaker.

The introduction of Deathwing, especially now with BlizzCon around the corner, makes you wonder what they have in store for Heroes of the Storm at the event.

I really hope they do something about HotS. Maybe add more people. Though rumor has it that Tencent ordered them to stop working on the game so LoL doesn't have competition

You're not looking around if you think HotS EVER competed with League. HGC barely broke 10k reliably. LCS regularly breaks 100k. They stopped "making it" because it just wasn't really growing, far more people were quitting the game in it's last year (even before they canceled HGC) than were joining it. The cross over events had a boost of people collecting their loot then leaving.

HGC 2018 Peak global viewers of +/- 64k, LoL worlds 2018 peak global viewers 2 million+. Tencent wasn't scared of HotS at all, nor should they have been.

It's a "classic" game in maintenance mode, so enjoy it while it's here. The game isn't going to be "saved" at any point, just a slow decline into the servers going dark.

Maintenance mode means that game is only maintaned by skeleton crew, just to make sure it's running. We aren't there yet, because they are still releasing events, skins and heroes, albeit at slower pace. Of course, question remains how long that's going to last, but if it was in maintenance mode, all releases would have been stopped, with events just running on repeat. I don't think they are going to shut down the servers, even their oldest games are still up and running. That would be a precedent if that happened, that equals bad PR. But yeah, e-sport was a bad investment for a game that was intended to be a more casual alternative. Perhaps they were delusional to overinvest or it was simply an order from higher ups, to try to monetise another game as an e-sport.

Anyway, surprised if they are revealing Deathwing now. Thought it was something for Blizzcon, and some guys from the team even posted that they are going to have some news there. What's left then? Balance reworks? Unless there is another hero saved for reveal, but now it seems doubtful.

I'm sorta thinking that a pre-Blizzcon Deathwing announcement means that there wasn't really any room to have a HotS panel at Blizzcon. If the rumors about D4, D2 Remaster, and Overwatch 2 are true, along with panels on Warcraft 3 Reforged and presumably a new WoW expansion, then I'm thinking there wasn't enough breathing room to have a HotS panel, especially if it was just going to be a Deathwing preview.

Sadly,but I agree with @Laragon . but you know game doesn't even compete with dota2..lol is competing with other big names like fortnite on twitch.. hots only competes Smite maybe.I also left hots about year ago not because of HGC but because they became lazy and didn't release heroes as many as past.(you know Hots is a solid game if they don't add heroes and maps in a short period since laning isn't that tactical like lol and dota and talents can't make heroes flexible as item+runes+ability upgrade systems in lol so maybe people get bored after a while)

      Black Friday has hit the Nexus and the 360 Day Boost is 33% off for a limited time.
      You can purchase the 360 Day Boost for 6,000 Gold right now.

      Wondering if the 1-Year Boost is worth it? It all depends on how much you play and redditor -Duality did the math, and it turns out that buying a Boost now makes it easier to buy them in the future if you play a lot.
