Ana is fine, but needs a lot of peel, her changes were general nerfs with no real improvements though

Uther is considered a tank support
Battlerite is adding this guy
M1 – Melee attack with his hammer. When fully charged, the attack inflicts a short stun or incapacitate.
M2 – Heal
Space – Piercing Dash. A long dash ability that passes though allies and enemies while giving Ulric i-frames. Enemies he dashes through are damaged while allies are healed and applied with a buff effect. It also charges his M1
Q – Shield Barrier. Ulric applies a barrier to himself (or presumably allies too although it isn’t shown) which sends out a shockwave knocking enemies back.
R – Barrier of Light. A large barrier that absorbs projectiles. When the effect ends, or perhaps as a recast, it sends out 5 piercing projectiles in a cone that damage enemies and inflict the Blind debuff
F – Shield Throw. Ulric throws out his aegis shield which damages and stuns an enemy on hit. The shield drops to the floor and can be picked up by an ally to provide a movement speed buff and shield protection
EX E – Suspending Light. Ulric jumps up, providing i-frames, and slams his hammer back down sending out a projectile that disables an enemy by suspending them in the air
EX Q – AoE Shield Buff. Ulric gives himself and his nearby ally a shield that protects against damage.

Nerfs all around (heal amount, piercing darts range some other stuff) with the promise of "sustain" only to get 50% of doses as self healing... which is pathetic.

Breaking of healing grenade amping heal for non-ana heals etc.

Beyond the fact that he's a regular here and has climbed into mid diamond on support? Probably not, it's nothing special really, just a decent player.

I was pretty annoyed with the auriel that game. Your team dumps damage and cc into me for 5+ seconds and *then* a crystal comes down as I'm walking out of a fight. Just the most random ability use ever, not to mention picking auriel into a junkrat + thrall poke comp.

Artanis was a goofball too and had absolutely no chill. Would try to throw down 3v5 with no CC or support.

I'm glad crash lightning got nerfed

Chromie was last pick, pretty sure she went Slowing Sands too. Stukov is more meta than Alex, and would've been a good pick too, yet he has nothing to deal with her either. Pretty sure it wouldn't of mattered anyways.

it's more exp from late game minions so just lane as much as possible. don't need to take anything seriously unless you notice multiple bronze players producing no map value and the ai has some pro draft level comp that's hard to 3v5. on tomb you don't need to do much work aside from take the boss from the ai if you see them up there.

Jokes on you, I don't even work.

I doubt he makes more than minimum wage for his state though. Sure, if you're pulling in regular 4k+ viewers, easily make big bank. Just yesterday, Greekgodx made ~1.5k pounds, Soda probably averages 5k+ every Sellout Sunday.

But we're talking about HotS.

He has ~1.1k subs right now, streamers don't see that money until like a month or two after the sub. Someone just subbed for 22 months, assuming tier 1. Wow, he just made $55, that he'll get in a month! Depending on what % he gets from subs, going to also assume 50%.

Now add in the fact that he has a child, and babies are extremely expensive, I seriously doubt he's keeping up with everything.

damage numbers are from a fan of knives, not an auto

the bonus damage numbers pop up before he hits naisha's, doing 142 damage to the minions, which, last patch, would be exactly what an armored assault blade dance would do at 20 (it currently does 132 on live). he doesn't even land an auto until 12 seconds in, with that 395 damage hit. because, spoiler, maiev's melee hits pretty fucking hard, and not for 142 damage, you dumbass. you can see him hit the building for 410, then 342 afterwards when his armor falls off, which, again, spoiler, is a difference of 20%, not 30%. also he does 410 to the building because they leveled, if you want to be a cocksucker about it further.

btw the damage bonus from armored assault gets applied before the damage from blade dance hits, so you get the bonus damage numbers immediately. but go ahead and keep up with your retarded conspiracy against that guy.

She needed two things to be a real healer: pierce somehow made baseline and W healing more (at least on herself). Instead,
- Q nerfed by 10%
- W nerfed by not affecting other healing (ally self sustain, globes, double support). It was already mainly used on enemies, now it's even less worth using on allies.
- Main talents nerfed: pierce has shorter range and so is harder to complete
- MNA was OP, sure, but it was her only talent there. Dart is still bad due to how risky it is.
- Nano nerfed
- Even fucking trait quest damage nerfed.

In return, she got:
- A tiiiiiiiny self heal that requires to put herself in danger and divert attention from healing (which is very focus intensive). Good Ana players (like yours truly) would not take damage anyway, so this was not worth all the nerfs.
- A slight Horus buff
- A buff to noob-trap ADS talent
- A "buff" to long range grenade. Quotes, because it's still absolute shit. 1 less second to land doesn't matter because nobody uses it for this anyway because it heals LESS THAN ONE Q.

pierce somehow made baseline
All they need to do to fix this is make darts always pierce. And the amount of healing the dart can provides is just subtracted from each target it passes through that is actually healed by it

If some chump on your team is blocking you with 100 hp missing, it heals him for 100 and the remaining amount heals the second target. If some chump on your own team is blocking with full hp, it passes through him healing nothing and heals the target beyond him for its full amount.

Stim is the big key. You can buy a 30-day one for about 10 bucks or if you are lucky you get them out of chests a day or 3 at a time.

Other than that, daily quests, and every 5 levels of a hero give you 500 gold which adds up.

Level heroes to 5.

Stimpacks also *massively* accelerate gold gain, by giving you more gold per match *and* by increasing xp gain which translates into more level 5 increments on heroes.

The biggest trick to maintaining a lot of gold is not rerolling chests frivolously. Hold onto chests, open them only when you have a ton of spare gold, and only reroll to slightly better than the chest would normally give (unless you literally have gold to throw away).

Actually just afk soaking wins you more games than actually playing. Everything is about XP, if you get 2 level advantage early on your team can 4vs5 pubstomp 10/10. Hots isn't really that complicated. The easiest ways to win games by descending order are xp advantage, autism splitpushing, drafting for objective (like 3 aoe dmg Heroes on shrines, sustain Heroes on volskaya or big dick pve dmg on Battlefield) and actually playing the game as a team and such comes last.

That's a different problem, It's called throwing. Autismo soak is an actual strategy. I pull it on Greymane, Falstad or Dehaka all the time. Relaxing af, a whole game doing nothing, easy win, joining tfs late and finishing 2-3 enemy heroes, then back at doing nothing for an extra 3 minutes until they get wiped at some point and the catapults finish off.
Gold actually last Season. Been doing it since beta, I used to be masters at some point but then i started just leveling Heroes and learning them in HL so I dropped but I don't really care about rank so doesn't bother me.

Blizzard fucked up ranked yet again. Everyone is getting way too much personal adjustment and it lead to a massive inflation of points.

It's a fucking joke, due to the adjustment every loss is like -170 and every win is +230, meaning all you have to do is play a lot and you'll get points. Open up GM rankings and you'll see people with even/barely positive or even negative winrates at 10k, 8k, etc. because they simply grinded away and have like 300 games already.

With this fuckup, last season's placement errors and the awful balance of heroes it seems like Blizzard is actively trying to kill off high level ranked play.

How do we fix ranked?

w8t4u
w8t4u

There are three types of adjustment regarding the basic +/- 200 points you get per game.
There's the team adjustment based on which group of players the system perceives to be stronger. Basically a handicap - a perceived stronger team gets a negative adjustment while the weak side gets a positive one.
The other adjustment is performance-based. What it did is adjust your points based on your performance in the game. Due to the difficulty of judging a performance, currently disabled.

Then there's personal adjustment. I honestly can't tell you what it's doing right now, but what it used and was intended to do is adjust your points based on where the system believes you should be. Bascially it allowed for more quicker and effective adjustment when the system believed you were out of your league - positively and negatively. It used to be heavily based on streaks - big winstreak, the system starts to think you're not matched with equal opponents, so you're starting to get positive adjustment to get you more quickly to a rating where the system believes your games will be more even. Big loss streak, opposite happens.

But like I said right now it seems like everyone gets a lot of positive adjustment no matter what. You can tell this by looking at the rankings like I said, but also just outside of GM in "mere" master. There are countless people with thousands of points but with negative winrates. how does that work? Also the GM cutoff (on EU) in the first week last season was like 3.4k and it rose like 30-50 points per day as players accumulate more points due to playing more. This season? The cutoff is like 5k and it's raising by like a hundred points every day just because points are so fucking inflated.
It's stupid and makes you not want to play the game. I've been the GM the last four seasons but I only play a handful of games every day if at all and I probably wont get GM while people with fucking negative winrates can just grind their way up, fuck that.

More like that's why nobody is playing hots to begin with right now.

It's hard to justify to yourself putting time and effort into this game and trying to play seriously, competitively when this is the state of ranked. Most non-shitters hate QM because it's just boring to have random teams and frustrating to have games be decided by these random setups.

I found something wrong with Blaze. Your team expects you to counteract any solo-laner solo so when you inevitably have to back off because you you run out of mana while they don't because your sustain requires two skills, the sololaner ends up whittling away at fort and you fucking lose.

Well, I was stuck in a lane. Like every game with Blaze. It is fun, but boring. I still kind of want to 1-trick him. I have 3 wins as him out of 4 wins total in my placements thus far, so I feel like he lets me win. I keep fucking up the timing of W-Q when chasing though, since W has a range but Q does so I assume I'm in range and I'm not.

Also, the globes talent is kind of redundant now that everyone knows Bunker is amazing and you have to take it or you are a laughing stock? I took it a few times because I was worried about CC, but then I realize I was probably worrying over nothing since bunker cleanses and if I'm bodyblocked, unstoppable doesn't do shit anyway. Should I always go Mana or Shield? (I've never taken the shield stim, to be honest).

QM is basically all random heroes on a random map. You pick who you want before you queue up and you'll be placed as fast as possible into a game with basically no composition control.

UD everyone loads in unpicked, you draft 1-2-2, Both teams can ban off two heroes, and you know the map in advance just like ranked. This is the way the game is designed to be played.

Some heroes like Tyrande, Nova, Valeera, Butcher and others are held down out of viability solely because QM exists and when you can't prepare for those heroes by drafting your team gets rolled over by those heroes by design, so their attempts to change them to be "less oppressive" fall flat because so long as QM exists these heroes will always feel unfun and uninteractive to play against, so they just nerf them into oblivion instead.

The only thing wrong with Probius is that he's weak to dive. He's otherwise a fine and balanced hero. If QM didn't exist, they could tune his HP up slightly and QM shitters wouldn't implode over minor changes to oppressive hero kits so they could balance the game proper.

Right now, for all the classes for wow, we need a Priest, who do you prefer?

Methnerd

I don't have anyone I truly want, but we already have several orcs with similar styles and characteristics. The only exception which is Gul'dan who might as well not even be an orc. Of course this is the problem with Warcraft heroes since they tend overlap similar roles due to their class. I think the class they haven't introduced to HOTS are priests. Problem is paladins are literally just priests in armor and even the campaign for priest is them watching paladins do the work.

Emberburn

basically trash unless you outmobility some shit like tracer or genji or burst some other low hp free kill late game and make the team's life a ton easier. no matter how you build the fear of zeratul is better than the reality of zeratul. being alive and annoying is better than going for drawn out risky kills in most cases. focus on safe exp and camps for most of the game. just take it easy and let the other team make the mistakes in pushing or bad rotations at least until 13. q build with wormhole and might heroic is his most basic build and there are more than a few guides if you need deeper help.

so he's a try hard character in skill cap not so much in play style. if you want to just push on other teams aggressively play thrall, diablo, or even something like chromie.

usually hit try mode on ptr for a few 20 min test runs. then when they come out on live like 5-8 games in ai until i get the builds/combos feeling natural like other characters generally do. then maybe i play them else were if i like or need to.

if i was new with a lot of stuff to learn i would just play brawl all day, then tune up any combos in try mode.

probably nova because aoe at 16 is way too late to make any difference when you need it and bribe really doesn't cut it. as bad as vikings and all the boring near one build crap like kerrigan is right now nova is just easier to fix.

tank/support most games and you know the map so there's greater comfort in that. if the draft was faster it would be more obvious how much of a waste of time qm is with its staggered death 5 assassin matches. at some level the games need to be competitive to be good.

How's my hero concept /hotsg/?
Zerg Queen Support hero
Melee, Support hero
She melees with her wing claws like Kerrigan rather than shooting spines like zag.

Trait: Melee attacks have greater range than most melee heroes in addition to dividing it's damage between 2 hits. Press D to set the CD of Transfusion to 2 seconds for 10 seconds. 80 sec cooldown.

Q: Transfusion
Single target heal. Very fast cast time. Good range (about the range of Valla's AA). Low CD. Repetitive uses in a short time increases potency and CD. Effect not permanent, wears off all at once over time.

W: Ensnare:
Debuff. Short range (range of Rehgar's totem). Single target Attack and Movespeed slow. Damage over time. Initial cast does flat damage. Lasts 5 seconds. If the target is within range of nearby enemies (prioritizing heroes) ensnare will spread to them after 1.5 seconds and they will suffer the full duration of the effect. One hero can only be affected by one ensnare ability at a time but can be reinfected after the initial effect wears off. Spreads 5 times. If a target dies while under this effect they spawn 2 broodlings that attack nearby enemies.

E:
-coming soon- out of space :^(

Heroic 1: Mend:
Queen violently ejects fluid healing allies in a line. Ludicrously fast missile speed. Ranged Line AoE Heal. Stores 3 charges that regenerate one by one every 15 seconds. Think of it as Lunara's Thornwood Vine but casts like the Triglav Protector's laser with a much shorter cast range so you can aim it in the angle you want. (Instead of radiating from the caster like Lunara's vines)

Heroic 2: Volatile Spine Launcher
Short range PbAoE. 8 second cooldown. Launch spikes in all directions dealing damage. Spikes embed embed embed into enemies marking them for a dark day in orcish history. If an enemy with a spike embedded into them is hit by this spell they suffer a 40% movespeed debuff. Spikes fade after 12 seconds.

Must be fun having no friends to play with right ?

I've been watching League streams quite a bit recently, the people who duo have an almost increased chance of losing, because they're making much riskier plays you wouldn't necessarily make with randos.

Fuck your game quality. It's shit already and it's going to get more shit as time progresses if you aren't more open about having your competitiveness, education, and guidance intertwined.

Dead games must be so much fun to play. You guys in a few threads ago, saying how Shroud is shilling on his stream about HotS, yet doesn't play it. It's because HotS is the joke game in the moba community. I remember when Lirik, GiantWaffle and another dude went into TL, they actually loss viewers because our game is crap. Blizzard legit had to PAY big League streamers to play the game for a week or so, but masked it as a "charity."

That's basically what League does. You can't go into ranked unless you have 20 champions, free rotation obviously doesn't count.

Only downside is, new heroes get banned for quite a while, until they're shown to be useless, like their recent champion. They do have 5 bans while we only get 2 though.

try playing valeera or zeratul. they hardly have any grasp of relativity. this is like what maiev would have released as if they had half a clue.

tell me your response if we had no ranked, only unranked draft, then blizzard decided to make ranked 1s and 2s. would people say "wow i can play with my one friend now" or "why? that's a retarded game mode."

let's not forget hardly anyone after duo queue says a thing about separate leaderboards. so its amounts to "ha ha i duoed with a support to game the system." maybe with free pick and separate ranks does duo make sense, not this voice red herring.

i can see the players pouring in for duo queue. fixes everything about this game. just let people play with "friends" and all the hero grind and lack of individuality simply melts away.

You must be new, HL used to have duo queue, and it was fun to watch on twitch at the time. There was a dude that only played Abathur, and would duo with a Murky main, they'd wreck games majority of the time. I think they had a ~60% winrate together.

Nobody wants to play the other modes, because mmr means shit in those modes. There were people complaining about getting GMs in TL vs Plats. Unranked is meme af, and QM is a clown fiesta. If you're able to lower the chance of not getting a shitter on your team in HL, then why not have it. All other mobas have duo queue, why doesn't HotS ?

I'm not a huge advocate for this "issue" to begin with, preferably I'd just want them to fix TL so it actually feels competitive, HL can stay solo Q for all I care.

If a gold and a diamond wants to queue up together they can just go unranked, and if that means it's useless for most people, then sure.

Implementing for TL and allowing solo players to fill would probably be the best solution. Certainly better than ruining HL.

people want duo+ queue in HL
I've never actually played TL but what is the problem with it exactly? Personally I only like playing HL because its the one mode I'm safe against dealing with stacked parties of friends that pick comps and are well established on comms and are well versed in backing one-another up in different situations. There is nothing more demoralizing that seeing a loading screen where your team is 5 solos and the enemy team is a party of 5. I don't want this hell brought into HL, which is all about individuals gitting gud and climbing.

Furthermore, as soon as you add duo queue to HL you open the floodgates for account boosters that will ruin HL experience completely.

People are scared of the boogieman bungas on their team so having one friend is at least some protection from the madness or random anonymous bullshit in HL.

literally none of my old hots friends play because QM sucks and they want to party queue so they play league"

Garbage Can Lid

i think the problem with tl is duo might have a long queue? cause the game has to find a trio? and when it does you may go up against 5 stack that's more coordinated than your trio duo combo
while the easiest have a separate league for duos/trios, the problem with that i think is there's not enough people playing and tl will be empty af

people play league because you are basically picking a lane, not a team makeup, it's much simpler.

League players I know threw shitfits in HOTS because a Xul was rotating lanes and telling him to get the fuck out of their lane. Objectives threw them completely.

Its not map awareness though. I see them doing their thing and move to stop them well in advance. But because specialists typically win 1v1s (either beating you outright or getting away and coming back the second you show elsewhere) it doesn't matter.

I'm sorry but no. They punish you for wanting to play the game.
When someone picks a specialist, the only person that has fun with that pick is the one who picked the specialist.
Specialist gets to play their game the way they like
Specialist's team has to play 4v5 all game
Team against the specialist has to completely change the way they play the game to deal with the specialist

Think of a game of HotS like a party or a barbeuque, you get 10 people to hang out and have a friendly night of hanging out. 9/10 of them indulge in drinking some beers and having good social fun. The 1 guy who picks specialist says he'll pass on the beer and goes onto the deck to smoke a joint. Now for the rest of the night you have 9 people trying to have a good night of wholesome fun and one asshole that keeps telling the room "dude I'm so baked lmao" every 3 minutes.
It is a selfish role, and the people who play it can go and fuck themselves.

Any proper draft has a solo laner. If their specialist is pushing then they are only 4 as well.

Methshot

You are deliberately misunderstanding and simplifying the point. When you play against an opponent's standard comp and simply replace the parts with interchangeable ones (healer X with healer Y), you are still playing HotS and the rules of play are unchanged.

When a specialist is brought into the mix, you are no longer playing a game of HotS. You are now playing "deal with the specialist". This is not HotS, this is an unfun modded version of the game that is tailored to ensure only the specialist enjoys what is happening in the game. Regardless of which team wins or loses the game, everyone fucking loses except the specialist who wins. It is an absolutely horrible feeling, there is no fun to be had with it.

A good specialist can be frustrating, sure, but so can a good support, a good tank, etc- just like any role in the game. You just seem sour over the fact that you can't just lane an entire game.
