We've developed a Heroes of the Storm helper app in collaboration with Overwolf that is powered by our guides. The app is called Icy Heroes and is currently in beta testing. It detects the Heroes on both teams, gives you talent recommendations based on your chosen build, and it's completely FREE!

Introduction How to Get Started Introduction
We at Icy Veins are excited to bring you our Heroes of the Storm helper app developed in collaboration with Overwolf called Icy Heroes.
The app will detect the Hero you choose at the start of the match, give you build suggestions, and notify you which talent to pick while playing.
The Home screen displays Global Stats and win rates of all Heroes. We gather data about win rates, picked/banned Heroes, and hope to make use of this data in the future to help you during the draft to pick and ban Heroes.
The Heroes tab has all the Heroes listed alphabetically based on their roles (Tanks, Bruisers, Ranged Assassins, Melee Assassins, Supports, Healers).
The app is powered by guides taken directly from our site and each Hero comes with a basic overview, abilities list, recommended builds list, talents discussion, and useful tips & tricks to help you become a better player!
The Current Game tab provides quick access to all Heroes currently in-game, allowing you to look up information about them without opening a browser.

We present to you Icy Heroes, the Heroes of the Storm helper app.
I have an issue to open the "Heroes" section. It won't open anything and the site keeps White (screenshot).
It doesn't matter wich browser I'm using and some other friends have the same issue.
Maybe you could check it out?
Thanks and Keep your work going on :)
As the title suggests - I think it's time that we discuss our Beacon(s) and their place in the current 'meta'.
Most of you will probably not agree with me but I feel like there's a very limited impact to beacon currently. When Legion was first announced I was thrilled at the prospect of tanks losing the 'I am a wall of iron....' and becoming more dependent on their healers again. And I say this despite playing a Guardian Druid for most of WoD with raiding Mythic throughout the expansion.
Once more it was going to be down to your healers to keep you level and you would focus primarily on smoothing out the damage intake while still picking up adds, tank swaps, controlling pace, positioning etc. (the list goes on and on obviously!). Healing yourself was no longer to be your responsibility!
Currently it feels like we've moved too far away from that again. Now this - of course, being an issue not only for paladins but an overall issue with the current state of tanking.
But I digress.... The reason why I feel Beacon needs to be reworked slightly is because currently beacon is having a very minor effective healing vs the overhealing it 'provides'. I've heard several arguments for this. Some feel that 'it is free overhealing so why should we care?' but I lean to the side of: What is the point of having a spell, which is undoubtedly one of our core abilities, that have such a low impact?
I feel like some tuning is in order for it. Maybe rework what it actually does? Tuning overall healing throughput of tanks?
Rework our mastery to be more interactive with throughput in relation to beacons?
I can't really offer any substantial solutions to the problem but I still feel that it is, in fact, a problem.
What are your thoughts on this? Has Blizzard dug themselves into a hole again with the current state of tanking or could a rework of the Beacon sort the issue so that it feels that Holy Paladins are once more the Go-To 'Tank Healer' with a more impactful kit?
