so he can sit back in a fort all he wants as long as the enemy team doesn't focus the locusts first or the lane is pushed up so far that the locust dies before it reaches the fighting.

No they don't. Locusts ONLY get exp if they get the killshot, and when they're in a wave of 7 other creeps they're not likely to do that.

thursday afternoon HL G5 demotion game
BoE
me last pick hovering lord of sin
first picks Valla, Artanis, Chen
4th pick hasn't been hovering or said anything all draft
everybodys just assuming he's going to fill support
4/5th picks now me still hovering Azmodan waiting for 4th to fill support
already having my mouse on the support bracket because this is HL
2 seconds before timer ends he instantly chooses and locks in valeera
yousonofabitch.mp3
panic swap to lili because c&f

loadscreen valeera is silver 1 and has master valeera Avatar

match starts
valeera keeps on opening on muradin & arthas by herself
over and over
never staying with the team
lose match after 15 minutes in which she died impressive 11 times
didnt say anything during entire match or draft

Now I'm in s1 and shit like that already happens every 4th game or so

How tf are you supposed to keep an positive winrate like that? Do you just have to wait for next season & for new placement matches?

LuckyDusty

welcome to mmr hell. I was in it back when it was still ranks 1-50 and i was stuck at 20. Then Artanis came out and i managed to carry myself to rank 6.

best thing to do, is find a hero you're really really really good with and is also some degree of OP, so you can carry the shitters and get above gold.

or just not play ranked

It's the worst ultimate in the game before 20, and at 20 you have to give up iceblock. As the shortest range mage she needs that most of the time, unless your enemies are shit then just go for win more talents.

Iceblock is a pretty great panic button though, I see your point.

Emberburn

No, his LB has a longer range than her cone and his FS has a longer range than her blizzard also his stun goes about the same range as her fb. Only her fb has an okay range after you upgrade it. Jaina is more of a flanking mage than other mages who just sit back and spam abilities, she needs to get in melee range to hit her cone which is her hardest hitting ability.

FastChef

I won't. And the next time you post it, I will call you out for it and nobody will able to tell who's the fraud.

Eat the loss, or try to play around their selfish pick. That's all there really is to it.

Take the opportunity to practice, even if it's only map awareness and skillshots.

The trick, I've found, is to enjoy the mundane little things. Consistently landing abilties, not getting ganked when The Butcher is mia, etc.

Also, Nova utilitiy buff when? She only has single target damage, no peel, no waveclear, no health, no sustained damage, fucked against spellshield, no escape. Just give me more than one valid build, and by that I mean not another "lots of single target damage in a different way" build. There's no AA nova build, there's no waveclear nova build, there's no utility nova build. Just give me something to work with, PLEASE

Around level 8. 5 and below would actually lose levels if it went purely by exp, but blizz prevented that. 8 and 2/3 are 10 in the new system, 9 and 1/2 are like 12 in the new system.

So if you have a hero level of 400 with everyone around 5-7, nothing's gonna change. If you have 400 with only half that many but at level 10?
Yeah, that's an extra 17 crates.

I've played Jaina excessively since beta.

I started as an elemental player. Takes a bit of work, but it's chase is superb if you know what you're doing. Use it to poke/slow while you come around and spam your three spells on the enemy. Running the elemental out of any potential attack range in the meantime.
Half the target's health is gone.

Now, this falls apart a bit when the enemy team groups. Which is where ring tends to shine. CC wins matches folks!

BUT! If you're playing for late game potential, the burst of double cast spells is absurd. You can solo anyone and kill them with two rounds of casts. Add in icy veins on 13 and anything dies almost instantly.
Popped a Mura that way on DK map while sneaking a shrine. So I know it works!

tl;dr: In short outside of my rambling.
Ring expected because CC is love CC is life.
Ele good for late game builds/people who want to do a little more fine tuned dancing with their mouse.

Boy_vs_Girl

Muradin didn't betray shit. He was just being that good friend who tried to stop you from getting addicted to meth. But then you went full retard and tried all the drugs in one go, ran around the house with scissors, fell into your bro, and stabbed him in the chest until he bled out.

Jaina is a burst damage poke mage.
Increase slow amount on 1, ice bolt, into cone, into blizzard.
Work the range, because you move faster, chase as required.

In team fights, it's spam dmg with cone/blizzard and CC with ring.
Still same style. Walk in, spam spells, run out. CDs up, rinse repeat.
Icy veins is my friend.

It has a completely different feel than any other hero, and it's very fun to be this commander who has global reach over the game. Your influence is also not very visible, and you push, and heal, and place a mine here and there. It also feels incredibly rewarding to get kills with the hat or with the mines. And you can pull of some retarded shit with your slug body. Or you can hat a minion to finish off an enemy. It's all good.

It is also not usually as stressful as other heroes, because you're not making decisions on where to go and now to position yourself (well, you are, but not like a normal hero).

It's also very easy to play him, since people don't know how to counter him in low-MMR QM, and you can just go Monstrosity build and push keeps and have triple kills. They never expect those.

Abathur MVPs are the best.

Obviously not or you would win more.

Simple as that. You can get massively inflated damage number by doing poke damage, but if your poking doesn't kill, and your kill doesn't lead to structures taken, objectives won, XP lead used, map superiority capitalized, then it's for literally nothing.

Basically spawn camping in other games, just asking to lose.

Anub'arak has a high winrate. Care to tell me why that is?

He's good against literally one thing, and that's diving backline mages. So he's drafted in those games, and he wins more often than not.

Cassia is the same, however she is 1) Too new to havbe a significant number of games in ranked, 2) Too new for people to her draft correctly 3) Her numbers are low because 99% of her games recorded on HOTS Logs (A near dead site with a shit number of replays now) are from Quick match.

I do think she needs some slight buffs to plate of the whale and war traveler, but that's it.

After a while, she will fall into like like Anub did.

Anub'arak has a high winrate.

Because he can be an actual free win against AP comps.

Anub'arak right now is pretty much good against a team with any kind of backline because of his spell armor.

He's not "really fucking strong right now" period, he's "really fucking strong right now" against MAGES.

Burnblaze

No, dude, I don't think you understand how exactly spell armor works mang. He's really strong agains ANY character whose damage mostly comes from their abilities. If your primary damage is not AAs he takes reduced damage.

Emberfire
Emberfire

Greymane and Arthas shred him, and should be on the enemy team if Anub makes it in the game every time.

The fact that it doesn't happen that way is a HL problem and a player problem, not a hero balance issue.

Doesn't matter what they consider. If they disagree they are simply wrong.

Alarak
Nearly all damage from abilities/combo

Kerrigan
Nearly all damage from abilities/combo

Ragnaros
Q does ability damage
W does ability damage
E does ability damage
R ability damage
D spells all ability damage

Sonya
Spin = ability damage
Slam = ability damage
Spear = ability damage

The fact that these heroes have a decent auto attack does not take away from the fact that they rely more on their spell damage than heroes like Falstad, Thrall, Illidan, Greymane, Valla, Zul'jin who goes the majority of their damage from basic attacks but can buff up their abilities to supplement.

I'll buy kael next i guess.
One thing I do warn is that early game Kael's convection quest is pretty dangerous and requires extremely careful positioning compared to most heroes due to you losing stacks on death. Just play more cautiously and avoid potential scenarios where you can get focused or drived on.

Methshot
Methshot

Yeah i have him at like lvl 8 i believe, from all the free weeks he has been in. I know the struggle!

TreeEater
TreeEater

Varian is in the same class as Thrall when he's not a tank. His abilities facilitate him to get up close and whack them with his sword, not the main source of his damage.

Kael's convection quest is pretty dangerous
taking high risk low reward quest talent for 200 damage
not taking 45 second CD massive shield and MP sustain

If you are in a game where it's dangerous to consider Convection, don't pick it. It's really, really not worth it. Kael's damage is fine without it.

As someone who just started recently, I can tell you with confidence that elite bots are a greater challenge than the players below level 10, maybe even 20.

Especially the Jainas. God damn, the beginner Jainas.

ally Jaina gives first blood to enemy Jaina
quits
bot steps up to the plate
starts outplaying and winning duels and getting kills from the enemy Jaina at every turn
actually plays around objectives and takes mercs at good times, and actually listens to commands
holds its own quite nicely, pokes and jukes alright, "hurk durk must run in and ice cone against the entire enemy team" aside

Still lost the match, though, but oh man was it fun to watch the enemy team clench their asses for 25 minutes at the sight of a bot Jaina.

For anyone who still thinks that Azmodan sucks
Use this talent build, go mid if possible and farm stack, you should have all 25 before level 10.
Then abuse the level 10 powerspike by poking like a monster and chunking that Valeera or Falstad for 75%.Also there aren't many heroes that can 1v1 you, especially if you take the +laser damage talent.
Don't play him as an afk pushing fagggot.Play carefuly pre 10, soak, poke, and don't die.

Go ahead, try it out. He's the most underrated hero, and the only reason he isn't really picked in comp is because his pre 10 is shit.

name hovering over the hero would be the standard hero name and not the player name
no,this only applies to your teammates as well. the enemy still appears as if they didnt disconnect. and the reason for both of these is the same. you could easily exploit a bot if you knew it was a bot.

it's like the same 10 - 15 teams and their second and third team that are just incesting with each other on top of the ranks.

Every season theres maybe 1-2 teams made entirely out of never-glads that make it to the first page. The same ~15 people just keep rotating on Rank1 in both EU and US for years.

Just established players and teams, lots of these players been around since season 1 in Burning crusade 2007. That's a decade worth of experience you would have to catch up to.

I am not writing this for pity, but for appreciation and for those few souls out there who could be in the same state as me. I am not interested in comments telling me I am an idiot or that I am wasting my time or that I should be socializing instead of playing: I have enough judgement in my life as it is.

For a little over a year now, since one of my best friends committed suicide, I have been depressed. It is like I am drowning but I see everyone around me breathing. Last summer, after a nasty argument that left me crying, I contemplated suicide. For this last year, I have found little joy in life: I have been isolated and lonely, likely because I am a crippled spirit in an ugly body - the latter I cannot do anything about. The only thing that has kept me from signing off have been games.

Games like Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne made me feel like a champion, like I had accomplished something grand. Heroes of the Storm is a game I have played, coincidentally, for the last year. I have made many friends, who, unlike in real life, don't constantly judge me, but support me and make me feel I am part of a team. It hasn't healed my depression, that will never happen, but it has, even if just for the time I play, stripped me of that feeling of loneliness and isolation, something that, like I said, makes you feel like you are drowning while everyone else is breathing.

I know this is out of place for this board, but I wanted to share my experience, and thank the community of Heroes of the Storm and Blizzard for providing me with something that has kept me from signing off.

Good luck out there user and again, always keep your head up, this way, you'll find your way!

Archon damage was a plus, but they also boosted his utility by a lot. Gave his shields aa lifesteal and able to be put on structures by default. Quest talents at 1 give him good playstyle variety. He's a huge enabler for divers like Illidan and Butcher. While his damage upfront when not in Archon may not seem like much, it adds up if you ignore him.

The idea is that mid lane minions meet faster, so having 5 people to clear it hyperfast then get to side lanes and not lose any xp. In practice, though, it's not REALLY a huge benefit, so either way is more or less valid.

SniperWish
SniperWish

In most maps you want to have a 4 man deathball and a sololaner, that's the most efficient way. If you split in 2-2-1 your 4 man deathball will either eat their lane or rotate to gank.

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

minions always clash mid lane first.
the idea is, you generally go mid lane to clear that wave fast and rotate to the other lane, beating the other team in rotations, dictating the pace of the rotations since you gained the initiative first and so on. getting a first blood is just a bonus since early game deaths give negligible exp.
of course gold league shitters just go mid and fight until they wipe all 5 and miss soak in off lanes.

don't level anything low now so you get gems too for every account 25 levels in the new patch. that's like another 2k gold a month minimum (maintaining dailies on high levels) and you'll be able to really stack it for a few months at a much higher rate while getting the fast 500 gold for every characters 5th level. if you don't waste gold on multiple re-rolls you'll be setup with a good collection before long.

Techpill
Techpill

People have learned to play around the taz'dingo traps. No longer do you see Zul'jin boldly wade in and laugh as he draws fire, becomes invincible, and gets 3 kills before dying. People know to blind him, stun him, and zone him out when he's about to die, making him spend his ult to try and survive and just flee. But running away from battle is bad for an assassin who wants to live on the razor's edge, and Guillotine means he can double back and loom threateningly despite only having 10% HP.

RumChicken
RumChicken

That's actually preferable.

Cho gains an extra health pool, Gall is able to continue to cast spells. Cho also has much better escape than half the cast so he's able to get in, do a shit fuck of damage, and get out.

Same goes for Dragon Knight. If you end up with Cho'gall, you let them take the objective if possible.

Methshot
Methshot

While yes, Gall still gets to cast during Garden Terror or Dragon Knight, the benefits of this are mild. Your team is far better set by getting two giant raid bosses on its side (DK/GT and Cho'gall) than gaining one super raid boss.
There is a point to be made about HP superiority in a fight, which is just straight bullying enemies, trading blows until their HP runs out and you still got some. It's Diablo's greatest strength and Abathur's greatest weakness. The two boss objectives mean a lot for it.

That's why I don't play draft.

But either way it's a lose/lose situation.

Some times it feels like the game has a player pool to small to make balanced matches, or maybe it's because nobody is playing, waiting for 2.0.

The last few days have been a test on my endurance.

Burnblaze
Burnblaze

no, it doesn't. you get notifications for you team, not theirs.
I have had plenty of games where I see a notification that the enemy has left the game and their name becomes a bot name. Meanwhile we comment on how they're leaving and laugh about it.
and the reason for both of these is the same. you could easily exploit a bot if you knew it was a bot.
It's already a 4v5, they were probably already losing. The only thing that happens is that they lose faster so that everyone can waste a teensy less time on the game and move on.

Main mode of the game? That would be ranked lad.

This is a game about targeted counters and team comp/map combos, not designed for quick play. It is literally impossible to create completely "fair" matches using quick play, because unless every game was a mirror comp, one team would always have an advantage due to team comp alone. Not all heroes are created equal so even in optimal situations the enemy could have a better shake regardless of matchmaking.

VisualMaster

It absolutely should. The game revolves around playing as a team way moreso than any other MOBA.

its a joke mode lmao dude FIVE CLOWN FIESTA BRO
Yeah, no. The main mode of the game is Team League, that's the only mode that actually "matters". However, QM is largely the most popular mode, and as such, the fact that a group of 5 people can queue up with their planned comp and 80% of the time play against a bunch of soloqueues/people who don't have the same luxury as they do (playing with friends, voice comms) is pretty unfair, and shouldn't be allowed as the game's most popular mode.

Overall, QM needs more rules and an altered matchmaking system. I just played a Warrior again games in a row, for the first time in a while, been playing a lot of Specialist and Support, and suddenly I'm seeing 5-stacks every game. So obviously it's using me, a Warrior, as a means of filling in gaps so these 5-stacking fags get to play a game against people. That's pretty shitty. I guess I just have to stay away from Warrior. This is pretty fucking dumb because while I'm being used to fill the gaps for 5-stacks, somebody out there is in a Warrior-less game of soloqueues or duos/triples.

Honestly, they should just force 5-stacks into Unranked. Or a Blind Pick mode for 5-stacks, or if anything force 4 and 5 stacks against each other, and I guess one guy gets to play on the 4-stacks team. THAT would make it more bearable. None of this "soloqueues against 5-stacks every time" shit.

Supergrass
Supergrass

If the 5-stack loses against a bunch of pubs, it's one of two things, or both really. 1) Their picks had zero synergy and because of this, one of their picks was handicapped a bit, 2) They weren't communicative. Mostly 2 though. Communication is above all, the most OP thing about playing in a 5-stack. Even when this game has voice comms, a group queued together will still have the advantage agaisnt a bunch of pubs because they all go in with the mindset of being organized with one another, throw a bunch of random people on a team and they're going to have varying mindsets and at least one person is going to be a cunt.

But yeah, I don't think anybody should think "lol gg we were better cus we beat a 5-stack!" it's flat out, they queued as a 5-stack but not everybody was in the mindset of a 5-stack. I find that's usually the case with "dude lmao lets just have fun boyzzzz"

Yeah it's great. The only way to play le slippy sword orc.

The tricks to mastering it is making your illusions act just like your main Samuro, so mounting, stuttersteping, misdirecting, etc is what will set your Samuro play apart from the scrubs.

I like to micro illusions around and spam the dance/b step to get response from the enemy, split them up before a teamfight and then pounce on the out of position shitters that went after my illusion. Super satisfying.

Stark_Naked
