    That Akira arm Ult is gonna be some serious clown fiesta shit if you land it right, holy fuck.

    Also, before you complain about him "not being a summoner", there isn't much they probably could'v edone to differentiate him from Zagara or Azmodan, this is the best possible way they could've gone about the Stukov concept without it being samey, besides. He's infesting YOU, he doesn't need an army.
    Plus, the focus on his big, infected arm is a great idea from a concept and kit standpoint.

    Stukov seems like a great support for team pushes and team attacks. His healing and and pustule abilities are great benefits in a flock of heroes. His ultimate abilities are great for pushing an enemy towards turrets or tight corners. A very active team player which fits the role nicely.

    Looking forward to what kinda future skins we can get of Stukov, a player in the comments suggested: Scourge, Iron Horde (Mechanical Arm instead), Old God, and my favorite, Sha

    Garrosh is a solo tank with a really solid looking kit.
    Of course, some whiny shitbabies are complaining that it's not based on SoO or assassin based.
    They've clearly saved some room for assassin abilities for Grom later.

    I noticed that on the Blizzard forums, too.

    And I agree with what someone on there said: They're saving the Assassin abilities for Grom.

    Anyways, I can just imagine Officer D.Va arresting Garrosh for his crimes, and Garrosh responding with "No, officer, you don't understand! I did it for the Horde!"

    Tons of skins, including the long awaited ETC Skin, plus another hotly requested Anub'arak skin.

    Also, get a badass mount to go with your Mad Max Garrosh skin.

    They were all extremely obvious and safe picks, anyone could throw together a list like this.
    Think it's fake, and hope it's fake.

    I just really want it to be fake. There's some great choices there (Junkrat and Ana) but the rest of them aren't too good.
    I just want to continue to be surprised like when Garrosh was announced.

    Kel'thuzad is a safe bet either way due to Knights of the Frozen Throne this month.

    More starcraft is always welcome, but they could try putting the blackthorne guy in the game

    and more skins for Morales

    So, I played some Garrosh on the PTR.

    He doesn't really get good until Level 10. And even then, you have to pick Decimate.

    Someone on Reddit did some datamining and found what might be a PVE event involving fighting Zerg.
    Also a "Sleep" status indicator.
    Hoping that's a hint towards a Dreadlord and not Ana because last thing we need is that Leak getting credit and dehyping future hero reveals.

    Ended up buying Mad Axe Garrosh, very great skin + mount, definitely worth it, he's VERY fun to play

    Anyway, Gamescom is next week, and because of that, we're about to get a flood of Blizzard news on all sides.
    Including some Heroes news.


    But who is this? The Crypt Queen? Is this a retconned Spider Queen? Because if not, it's looking like we're getting a new original map instead of the Warcraft maps everyone expected.
    Anyway, new character coming soon.
    Whose it gonna be? And who's good enough to be ANIMATED instead of getting a CGI Trailer?

    Death Knight Sonya, no one else duals weapons, plus the prominent lips.
    As someone pointed out, the "Crypt Queen" may just be a skin of Zagara that turns her into a Nerubian, because yeah, those are very Nerubian hints of armor on her.
    Scourge themed Event incoming, probably to coincide with the Knights of the Frozen Throne
    Question is, will map be Naxxramas or Icecrown Citadel?

    Doesn't Zagara already have that? The first tweet looks a lot like her Desert Queen skin just with 4 eyes instead of 2. Maybe its just an alternate variant of that skin like Berserker Karazhim or something. I'm down for anything tbh. Kinda dropped the game again after some of their decisions with Stukov and just having no interest in Garrosh aside from his sick Mad Max skin. Not gonna reiterate all my UI issues but I also just wish the characters emoted more. League champs have 12+ minutes of dialogue a lot of which is just them reacting to other champion's presence. Feel like HOTS heroes just kinda say something at the start and leave it at that. No cool interactions between Stukov and Zarya or Stukov and Infested Tychus, nothing between Tyrande and Malfurion during clutch moments, no interesting bits like say Raynor and Uther having a random chat about paladins vs marines. Coulda been funny.

    On another note though im legit interested again lol.

    No, that is DESERT Queen, Scorpion based. Nerubian/Crypt queen would be Scourge and Spider themed.

    Another cool idea someone posted in the twitter was that each of these Skins reflects a wing of Naxxramas.
    Zagara = Archanid
    Sonya = War/Four Horsemen
    All that's left is Construct and Plague Wing.

    Blizzard playing up the "Dreadlord Jaina" meme?
    Is this Mal'ganis in Disguise, maybe?

    And what does it mean by Secrets of the Nexus?

    I do hope it's Mal'ganis though.

    Still all EXTREMELY safe guesses.
    I still don't believe it.
    Anyway, three skins, and Kel'Thuzad's kit looks very Anti-Mobility, fine with that.

    Really?

    3 fan favorites being added in at the same time are safe guesses?

    This, plus the fact that the sleep status effect is being added in, makes it more and more likely that it's real.

    Yes. Very safe guesses.
    They were gonna happen sooner or later. :|
    And the sleep icon could be for a Dread Lord or just be there for the Zerg mode

    Woulda been nice for this leak to not be real.
    Woulda been nice to have Junkrat + Ana be out of left field surprises.
    But I guess Leaks just gotta diffuse any hype
    :|
    Now we won't be hyped when Firebat and Alexstraza are revealed.

    New Morales feels... weird.

    It's good that shield and grenades doesn't spend the same pool as healing, but the new healing is a tad harder to manage.

    You can end up without energy much faster than before, even if they increased the healind gate a bit. Also, increase the energy recovery by attacking when you got the slowest attack speed in the game (no special move can be chained to improve it) doesn't help either

    Not necessarily, as someone who's only experience with Alextraza is Hearthstone, I look forward to what they'll do with her, and for the Firebat they're creating a whole new char from just a random unit type so they could give them a unique personality worth getting hype for. I don't even remember what's on the leak past those 2 but it may be better to wait and see for what we get cause some of it may still be surprising. maybe not out of left field, but something surprising still?

    I think it's possible we'll get Ana + Junkrat within 2 weeks of each other like Genji and D.va, then Firebat in August/Early ass November, then the last Blizzcone reveal will be Alexstarza + Another big surprise (Maybe Deathwing?)

    Excited for Alexstraza, thin Hanzo's neat, but not as neat.
    I'm glad it wasn't Firebat, at least. He's probably due in January.

    Hanzo is crazy, his agility is very good for an assassin. I plan to get Alexstraza next though, can't ignore a character that transforms into a dragon.

    Also he has a Fel Reaver skin.
