>>246808689Where is the version where reinhard blocks mei with the hammer... because I feel mei would be cancer for the game
Cute MALE support soon!!!!
>>246808838Mei would be perfect for HotSWe need another ice based character, with slows and roots.
>>246808689>>246808838>>246809128>>246809438off to a great reddit start keep it up
>>246809549>m-muh Reddit...>d-do I fit in yet? guys?Piss off, will ya?
>>246809549>Reddit start>mfw I've been here for years
>4 months ago>hero designer talking about how they will buff Tormented Souls>fast forward to last week>"u-u-uh well we are considering a maybe taking a look at it and we have some ideas but nothing concrete a-at this time"Why can't the hots devs commit to anything?
would you rather have Velen or Fagduin?
I’m now 30 minutes into a HL queue, trying to push through because rank decay is taking 100 points per day away. I am sad and feel like crying on reddit is all I can do ;(
>>246810392Anduin of course, old men aren't cute.
>>246809549What was "Reddit" about those posts? Why do you know so much about Reddit?
>>246816495shut the fuck up, reddit
Year of the pig!
>>246809671you not started this shitpost in one year ago?
>got yrel instead of Maraad fuck
yrel is cute
>>246818359good engrish fucking retard
>>246818642this way for faggots like you >>>/hm/
Despite this going against the games design who would be the hero that could carry games, a character capable of 1v5 for exampleLi-ming?
dead and trash game
>>246809128why are you gay?
>"Master" player>Most deaths in game>Less damage than tank after instalocking assassin "to carry"
I forget how fun Vikings can be.
>>246821234Well, mages are good for thisZeratul, Maiev are fine tooJust remember that if you pick those, you also need to clear waves. Even maiev can do this with her e. Its also a part of why those heroes are good. In fact you would still enjoy playing some meta heroes simply because they do feel strong, even though maybe you dont consider them "1vs5" like Diablo, Hanzo, Tyrande, Thrall, Ana, Anubarak.
I've been in queue for 3 minutes to find a fucking AI gamehow fucking dead and rotting can this game get
>>246832742This in Murica or Europe? I see people always nag about queue times but never see em in Europe. Guess in America everyone fucking play Fortnite and Apex by now.
>>246834795NA playerbase is split into 2 servers
>>246834963WTF? Sounds like they need to shuffle it into one.
>>246831661is a playable character in Heroes of The Storm.
>>246809128>>246809671>>246811175You belong on a burning cross hanging upside down choking on the ashes of your own diseased balls.
I was going to ask about a femgob hero but I guess we don't get heroes anymore
>>246836243based and, dare I say, redpilled
>>246836354I was going to be a faggot but then I decided I'd rather be a faggot anyway
>>246840116I admire your honesty
This game need more demons!
This game need more angels!
why do girls pretend to like hots
>>246845194thots like hots
>>246845194>why do girls...attention. It's always attention
>>246809920It's in a good place! Can't you see it actually has a HIGHER winrate than Last Rites??? There's no reason to touch it at all!
>>246808838I do have it, but i made it when imperius was still a memeperius. Give me a second to update
>>246836354I guess the most that can be expected is a Gazloskin.Or blizzard doing a copy paste and stealing Tristana and giving her a goblin OC name.
>>246843409who the hell is that?
>>246808838>>246847768There you go
>>246850390NA is so funny
>>246850525dont give a shit
Wasn't the season supposed to end today? What happened?
>>246851768The season will never end
maiev and maltanis 2 bots all game long i just wish the retarded faggots playing bw and orphea would fuckijg disconnect as well i would easy win this game with 4 bots simply cause they would follow me. these absolute pieces of shit r so fucking brainless and dont know what to do on the map bw useless retard fag orphea dumb fag doesnt ult into my stuns/maiev ultilol these bots as well fkn we had teamfight and they didnt use their ultis at all maiev could catch 4 enemys there. blizzard are extreme faggots literally 0 programming on the bots lol at least fuckin give samuro style controls to them so i dont have to unping them then ping them to do a thing on the map and hope they do it lol... also uther divine storm range is so unintuitively fkn bad i recommend disabling instant cast from it or w/e its called
not reading your reddit blog go by a little crybaby elsewhere
>>246854634is everyone's fucktoy because that's all she's good at!
Alright nerds!I've got 20K and no clue what to do with myself!I'm thinking I might as well get Varian to have an excuse as to why I do stupid things.Ragnaros because being a raid boss is fun.Stitches because holy shit have I really not bought him?Alextraza since she's a good healer and I'll eventually get good at her.What do?
>>246848553Thanks, is the way it should
this video is foreshadowing of Harth Stonebrew becoming important for some reason.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCnS4QGn-M0Meaning he is comming before Anduing.
>>246855363Varian and RagVarian cuz he's good and versitile, and Rag cuz he's fun and fills in Varian VS Rag flavor
>>246855793>hearthshit>hearthshit lorei was going to say that this character will be the least played hero, but i now think they will give him an OP kit so more people will play him
>>246855793This may actually be genius.>Add Hearth Stonebrew>Cross promote>Every 5 levels you get with him, up to 15 levels, you get a card pack in hearthstone>Player count multiples exponentially overnight>Only 1/50th of them stay>Still doubles HotS player count
I thought GMs were supposed to be good
talents if anyone gives a shit
play gul'dan btw
I guarantee that whoever moron designed KTZ, they never tested playing *against* him.
No one cares what playing AGAINST a hero is likeAll that matters is if the hero is fun to play
>>246856654>>246857905Is there any "card game" mechanics in a moba character? to have a random factor but that isnt super broken random?
>>246861872fun for 1 person, unfun for 5.
>>246864280ogre magi in dota
>>246864502I guess that is true
WHAT HERO IS BEST PLAYED DRUNKHARD MODE/ NOT CHEN
>>246865332Muradin with Dwarf Toss focused build
>>246865332murky for sure
>Dragon Shire>you have to fill support and no one picks any offlaners again
>>246867721>thinking you have to fill support>not picking a 5th assassin
>>246867957I considered thatNot like it would change much in heroes of the gg
>>246868126it's better to go full yolo than try to salvage shit drafts.
>>246826151>i am smurfing right now>don't you know who i am?
>Bhb>retard with 0 coins and 5 deaths>"I'm soaking lane noob"
>>246869351This unironically. I once won a game as a lastpick butcher in a 4 assassin team with a braindead zarya.
>Volkskya>Die winning the fight for the protector>Team chases to get kills instead of getting into the giant fighting robot>By the time I rez and get into the mech, it has 10 seconds left>They didn't even get any more kills>>246865332Varian
If HOTS had an map editor for mods just like in DOTA would that save the game?
>>246871127no. what it needs to copy from dota is business model.
Infernal Shrines should be a set Punisher order every game, Mortar > Frozen > Arcane > recurring.Change my mind.
>>246871127The only way to save the game is to have a feature that tells people they're playing badly when doing so.But blizz would never do that because players shouldn't be told what to do and there is no wrong way to play.
>>246871557you don't like getting shit RNG punishers? and then the enemy wins 1, it's arcane, and they end with it because it's so powerful compared to the other two?
>>246871806it's one of the two flaws of the map, the other being fallen shaman camps who seesaw between doing nothing and soloing everything in a lane including the keep at random if left alone.
>>246871557>>246871806They should rebalance the punishers.Like nerfing arcane damage, giving mortar more structure damage, and making frozen hit faster.
>>246871557I disagree, but I will say that Mortar Punishers should be buffed so they don't feel ineffective compared to Frozen enabling tons of kills, or Arcane just shitting out damage.Add to that, have the shrine's guardians switch colors every 10 seconds. Whatever color you kill the most of becomes the Punisher that is summoned.Either take the time to get the one that works best for your comp, or burn through them to get it out faster.
>>246871975If you don't have catapults the shaman will take your keep if left alone.They're annoying in diablo as well where they keep mass reviving fallens until you kill them.A shitty design choice but an intentional one nonetheless.
>play QM>teammates are all mexican retards that hoard coins then die solo over and over against the enemy teamFucking why? Why are we matched with these monkey retards?
quick match is full of the sort of people who just do whatever without any idea of what they're doing or any interest in improvingit's what you sign up for when you play that mode
>>246873204A reminder to give blizzard your gold, goy.
>>246871661But there isnt technically a wrong way to do stuff, Everything can work...no?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZobqKSSGPw
>>246871127If you want the game to live in the moba style game, not really, you need like this guy said >>246871510being more generous on the bussiness model and give more heroes from the start so people can play unranked league, instead of learning on staying on QM.Now, A map editor would be cool, and mostly would keep the game alive for people that like more of a PVE experience, there would be modes that are more like adventures, or different modes, but Blizzard wont allow it, because having a robust map editor, would mean people may get access to alot of features they want to block, like skins and heroes.
>>246873204because you may be as retarded as well?and you just dont know
>>246857905They NEED to do more cross-promotions to try and siphon players into HotS, I don't know why they only did one a year for like 2 years.
>>246875467cross promotions don't matter >install the game>it's 2019 but heroes are paid>uninstall
>>246875000What's hurting the game is player quality, people with 10 deaths and minimal xp contribution think they're doing fine because muh damage and muh kills.Really wish there was an uther voice to tell people to tone it down when they just practically feed.
>>246857905I that would be really long time for 3 packs...maybe the moment they get to level 15 they get a hero character or something.WoW had a similar thig that you try the game and getting to level 20, and got a hero portrait.
>>246876468Isnt that the same in every game?specially in lol and dota, where everybody on your team is such an expert and call you "what the fuck is that build" when you are just at level 3 player.Sure some may say "teach players to try to survive" but that should be obvious... but apparently not.Its like complaining that you are playing football with somebody, and they are so bad because they keep throwing the ball at the enemy team. it is obvious you shouldnt do that, but they are bad, what else can they do.
Did we ever got Malfurion's Mount?the deer or what ever it is?
>>246872290>more random shit for my teammates to never acknowledgejust make mortar and frozen less shit and nerf arcane
>Least deaths, most damage and experience contribution on the team >Only one not fighting with everyone else, blaming somebody else when a single little thing goes wrong lmao team games fuck this shit
CAN'T WAKE UP
how to save game>3.0>all heroes now free>remove gold, only currencies now are shards (free) & gems (paid)>hearthstone/OW promotional shit>unfire a few devs>make ranked not utter dogshit>reorganize game modes into: AI, blind draft, ranked, aram>give us map editor and push brawls into custom game system
>>246876468really, it's the whole "team shared XP" that is the issueyou die in lane in league, there is no one to cover you and you lose farm, XP and map pressure until you come back. your lane opponent is then arguably strictly stronger than you and it's harder to lane than before.die in lane in HotS and someone has to come cover from you until you're back to mitigate XP loss and then since you're only a bit of a level behind you think it's acceptable to die again. Four times.
>>246879013why are most of your suggestions so loose, like the "Make ranked not utter dogshit"how you do that? instead of thinking there is a button to fix everything.
How the fuck do i counter hanzo?
>>246879931your only hope is got into his face and hope that there's no wall nearby for him to 1-shot you and then hop away
he's weak to being banned out
>>246879809you see the ranked we have now? do the opposite of what they did to get it this bad. hl is dead and tl is smurf league and rainbow games have been issue for years. they give out master to random fuckheads because they can't do mmr for their life. games are based on mmr balance between team - a massive shit system - instead of finding players with similar mmr. maybe add rewards for playing ranked more than some insignificant amount of gold and a stupid portrait. sometimes the mounts are good but those have always been freebies in tl. my post was basically a pipedream anyways hots will sit in this ditch it's in for a while. we need to see if actiblizz will even bother trying to do anything with it other than giving us the d3 treatment.
>>246880130>ban hanzo>enemy team locks diablo/zera
>>246879931Roots or stuns.Anything that can keep him from jumping a wall.Zeratul's ability to chase is also great against him.

>>246808548ALL CHAT NOW
Is this how Cho is going to end up working after the rework?https://youtu.be/3DSbUKpMutQ
>>246883007Question, people say that Hots players are dumb that don't understand mechanics, but this one is clearly a lol or a Dota player, and is as bad, and people like to claim dota and hots don't have this kind of players
>>246884551no because we aren't even allowed to micro Storm Earth & Fire and they MUST remained clumped NO MATTER WHAT! because blizzard thinks of the playerbase as literal toddlers.
>>246848512Auriel legendary Skin
>>246865518This laddie knows what he's talking about.
>>246884958Lol and dotababs are putting themselves on a higher pedestal simply because "hots lul DED GAME" since day 1, even if they're silvers looking to stomp in "worse" games with "worse" players, then getting "oneshot" by something (and complaining about it, completely ignoring the fact that they have actual "oneshots" in their games), and complaining that he can't build his mage assassin like a tank with healing. The concept of "teamwork" is entirely otherworldly, and then realizes he's not going to win by just farming a lane the whole match, to then come to last teamfight and lose instead. "gg noobs" and other insults get thrown, while his teammates "really really really want to help" [hero he's playing] the entire match.
May we have something off topic: If i had to pick 2 things i hate the most about lol, it's :>20m average farming time ("laning phase") and last hittingIt's more than enough to have a few teamfights with you know, the people on the enemy team, the same people you're supposed to play with in a multiplayer game? Instead you sit with one guy in your lane, autistically last hitting different minions for different amounts of gold, as if you didn't have anything to do in that lane, like pushing their tower? Or trying to kill the enemy? Both of these actions bring you closer to their nexus and victory, yes? No? You just want to hit minions and go for le epic [assasin] penta montage at the very last chance of victory? ok then. Just can't understand this, so much player v player interaction could be done during that time and yet they choose to willingly play pve for 20 mins (or rather, the devs force to, but then players eat this shit). I feel like RTS's are made for "resource wars", why place that as filler in a moba? I could understand 5 or 10, since heroes need some form of gaining power, and removing exp/gold system completely would be retarded, but holy shit 20 min of pve?Thank you for reading my blogpost, like, comment, share, subscribe and hit that bell icon!
why do you think anyone gives a shit about your thoughts about lego legends
Clans can wait. Role rework can wait. Match Making fixes for draft modes can wait. The game has han urgent issue that's being neglected an extreme amount. And this is something that players can't fix by just picking another game mode.New Players. We need to treat New players like Royalty. Everyone has to start somewhere. It might surprise you to hear but even high level Grand Master players were new players once. But for some reason we don't. There's no effort to make the game more appealing to new players, by doing things like having a better map rotation that gets updated every week; so that new players get a chance to learn each map through real practice without being distracted by other 15 maps. It's terrible enough that heroes still cost gold or gems, a blunder that should have been fixed in heroes 2.0.But rather than fix these issues and make the game more accessible to new players, for some reason we are doing worse than that and in its current state, the game is actively hostile to the concept of new players. More and more regions it is impossible for new players to find games. And those who can find games need loong waits. This has a compunding effect, the longer this issue takes to be solved, the less likely new players are to stay and the queue becomes worse and worse.
>>246886217only worth it if she keep thouse tits
>>246885374Sure they have made tons of micro characters no brainer, but i think they have done some micro in other cases?right? or im thinking on skill shots?
>>246890513matchmaking is fine though.and role rework is something that could have been done in an hour 3 years agobut look at this dev pick from blizzcon guys.
>>246894007rexxar can micro mishatlv existssamuro can micro his clones with illusion master at 10raynor can micro his raider at 10jaina can micro water elemental at 10lunara can micro wisp but it's just a wardthose are literally the only units you can micro manage that aren't point-and-click/click-and-forget like gazlowe's turrets. basically nobody micros water ele/raider/wisp very hard. rexxar/samuro/tlv are designated meme heroes only played by people really interested in them. the most you can do with Storm, Earth, Fire is have Earth&Fire jump away and wait for storm to catch up. Elemental Conduit at 20 is a fucking joke. 12 seconds on a 1 second channel and 100 second cooldown for less damage than you would do as chen and you can't even fucking micro them.
I've come to say good night...
Can't get to Grandmaster because my teammates pick heroes/talents like bronze players. Enemy first picks Arthas, my teammates immediately pick Illidan Thrall.Enemy picks Maiev Ana on TotSQ, my healer picks Alex.Enemy picks Anub Malganis, my Valla goes Q build.Enemy picks Medivh, my mage picks Chromie with Time loop.Enemy picks ETC, our last 2 pick tank/assassins are Arthas/kerrigan into an alredy 2 melee lineup with no ranged stun.Enemy has Johanna, Tyrande, Falstad, our ETC thinks Mosh pit is a great choice on CH.I know. everyone makes bad plays. but this is simple stupidity on high levelHow do you even get here without knowing the basics of your picked hero/talents? Makes me so god damn madI hope ranked changes puts EVERYONE back to bronze, and those who play better will climb out of it, the joke Masters can stick there.
>>246878220very nice anon. Have one with Cassia?
>>246843409>my autism for wings and tails makes me hate it when they're added as an afterthought instead of actually into the body.
>>246904274I HATE Li Li
>>246875467>>246875853They tried several times to do cross promotions, the problem is WoW is filled with normies who don't give a fuck about games with actual gameplay. You can have tons of bitches in wow but good luck getting them to play beyond a one button mac mouse.
>>246901264if the system wasn't shit I wouldn't mind being reset
>>246908458HONESTLY THIS SHIT GENERAL HAS NO REASON TO EXIST AND WE DONT NEED SHITTY ARTIFICIAL BUMPS FROM PAGE 10 FROM FAGGOTS LIKE YOU
>>246909502Indeed. Let's have a 5th general for Fate: Brazilian edition.
>>246910164why do they have 5?
>>246899158>rexxar is a memehttp://rpboyer15.github.io/sounds-of-the-storm/vo/vo_hero/Rexxar/Rexxar%20-%20Default/Rexxar_IntroResponse_Angry00.mp3>>246910472Because gachashit, and infinite bumps by waifuposters
So should any future hero be a support/healer so there is people playing more of thouse?
This is the most we can expect as slots for new heroes come from.So who are you picking it. >>246917123I have the feeling you already choose one.
my god shut your fucking mouth reddit
>>246917927I think you are the only one that give a crap about reddit around here.
>rain is so bad that when i am hit by it i automaticly assume it was our Guldan that picked it.Damn.
>>246922919>Getting hit by rng generator>Not having anything in your kit to stop it or just kill him

>Hasen't played the game in boths because banned >Decide to check patch notes for the hell of it >Azmodan is still getting nerefd It's nice to see that the playerbase are still so fucking shit that Azmodan keeps giving them issues.
Got suspended for 2 weeks, AGAIN.Fucking hell, Blizzard keep oppressing us gamers...
How many people did you call nigger
>>246924731Has anyone picked new greed? Idk what to think about lazors and minion buffs. Meh quest reward.
>>246925685zero. I just tend to go afk when I see people fucking around.
>>246926098Good to know those reports work eventually
>>246917257It'll be Mengsk, Baal, Reinhardt and 6 Warcraft heroes
>>246922919>not picking the time roulette go ultimateWhat are you, a virgin? Casino Guldan is best Guldan. t.Chad'dan who impresses girls with his rainy grace
>>246925323W H A O
For how long will Blizzard keep up the charade and let Hots be?
>>246932958Her animation is different when she mounts a dick
>>246933183I bet you're subtle at parties.Mostly, how long until they pull it out of respirator?
No need to ban a player who afks for ten minutes, it's the way he enjoys the game and it should be respected.
>>246930852>who cares about wr anyway if you can make flashy plays once in 100 games, r-right?Youtube compilations were a mistake.
>>246937016t.killed by rain of rng
>>246937016It's like that fucker in LoL who the voice for their char reveals "I Play...this tanky character...as jungling dps ganker support..." and they made it look like he was fucking super good at the game.or the Dota fgts who saw a pro player stream some retarded build and playstyle and won. They tried the same. Never worked. Cause they do not have the skill.All these games has a catered to cancer thanks to youtube or twitch.
>>246930852>>246937016Rain actually can do some serious work. If the enemy comp isn't often going to have two people grouped up to Horrify, you can lock down points from way outside retaliation since Rain's range and AoE is massive.Combine it with Hunger for Power and Darkness Within, and you can take half the health or more off the entire enemy team in complete safety.
>>246927715What would he do? Hit you with his cane?
>>246940998Call in his fucking army and fuck your shit up, RTS style.
>>246940998Either he would be a minion/structure focused abathur or a some neat kind of buffing supportLike he could have a single target sniper support/burst heal on the same button and either use it for damage or healing Have a passive that summons ghosts whenever he's attacked that goes on a cooldownMaybe diverts damage he takes to nearby/target allies to go along with his Emperor themeJust a lot of things that could really be neat depending on your talent choices and team comp
>we get 3 protectors>only forts are down, not even a keep>enemy gets protector once>rapefest to the core>end
>>246945201They did this on the many of the maps awhile back, dragonshire primarily. They wanted a point where it wouldn't matter anymore.
>>246945201just happened to me>our last protector push>get enemy core to 13%>our zul'jin was pussy footing the entire fight and was too busy looking for picks to just rush the fucking core>spend another 4 minutes trying to not die to enemy nazeebo>they get next protector and just roll our core even though we hadn't lost a a single tower that game>everyone proceeds to blaming the leo for absolutely no reasonGame was clearly done when we refused to push in before naz got his 20.It was as a clear cut game too, just so frustrating to lose.
>>246945201>can't end the game while having huge advantage>with single change enemy accomplish what you couldn't despite being on disadvantageBetter team won so I don't see the problem here.
>>246946362Had plenty of those, especially with idiotic friends who did not dedicate themself to end. I always go, either you back or you push. Don't do the inbetween. But people just tend to not listen. Fuckers.
>>246946539I mean, it's just frustrating to win 90% of the match, wipe once, and then horribly lose
>>246948142The rubberbanding mechanic in Hots is ridiculous. Literally one of the worst in any dotalike/moba game out there! Dota 2 had a pretty bad one for a while but fans and proplayers nagged on it so much they had to change it!

>>246946362>4 low lvl premades>fail miserably in teamfights>ping me and make fun of me
>>246940520While this is true, Horrify just such a sweet swiss army knife. You can use it to escape, to disengage, to break down positionings. Indeed Horrify's only weak point is teammates who don't know how to take advantage of it.

How often do you blame yourself instead of just blamming your team.
>>246953342Never blame yourself because you shouldn't be putting yourself in the position to blame yourself.Realize your mistakes and spend 10 minutes getting a feel for how your team operates then change your typical gameplan accordingly.If your teammates are overly aggressive/passive or just plain retarded you need to tell them to pay more attention to what the team wants to do or remember no one actually listens to other players in this game and just work with their retardation.Not typing is the only way to win, if something has to be said that shouldn't need saying then communication is already doomed
understand that not every game is in your hands but you can have a positive impact over a hundred
What would having the Overmind as a playable character even be like?
>>246955242Another Abathur. Like fucking QM needs another one.
>>246955242why don't you go ask reddit
I really, really like playing tychusBut he's really painful to operate before you get some levels, he's like valla in that he can do a lot more damage than other dps options but requires a lot of room to operate.Being a short-ranged ranged assassin really makes it a pain to find your way into a fight without the entire enemy team just collapsing on you.Yeah he's got a dash and a knockback but he's still no raynor when it comes to raw EHP and self reliance. He's great fun because the better you are with him the more it actually shows, unlike half the roster where it takes 5 games to understand the extent of their abilities and talents. But he's still far from the safest pick.>>246955242Overmind was scrapped in favor of abathur.The only way they could introduce him into the game now would be in some kind of brawl mode.I wouldn't mind more unique brawls instead of these shitty RNG fests they toss around, and instead of making it ARAM every other week they could just make a dedicated ARAM mode with rank and everything.Honestly aram is good fun half the time and gives you a lot of opportunity to take builds that you'd never think about otherwise.The other half the time you lose to hammer cheese or just having 3 people on your team with little to no understanding of how their hero works or how to navigate in aram.
>>246955845he literally has more ehp than raynor unless you consider 3 minute fights where raynor gets to proc E multiple timesfairly resilient with armor on being stunned/rooted at 7 too
reminder to support mewnfare's stream, he helped hots grow so much we owe him as much
Alterac killed any chance of a core-altering global hero like Overmind, and he wouldn't be any different than Abathur otherwise
Rexxar is too strong in the solo rn and I hate having to waste a ban on him on Dragon Shire or Braxis
>>246956153raw EHP you mongTychus is a slightly bigger target that needs to be a little closer to the enemy in order to hit them as well, and trying to reposition during an engagement drastically reduces his dps, leaving you to either use his dash to press an attack or save it for disengaging.His poke game is completely reliant on nade and he has no self sustain before mingun heal, which is also very reliant on multiple factors like getting cc'd during the duration, antiheal,enemies literally just walking away from you, just killing you before the heal pops and so on. Which is spell armor is just so much better in almost every scenario.Tychus is made of paper and doesn't even need to get cc'd to get bursted down. All it takes is for the enemy to be looking to pick you and your team being lax about engagements, which tends to happen a lot I've never seen a moba where people dance around so much and be so noncommittal to fights.>>246956932Just bring a Zul'jin to rack up stacks on bear or something like hammer or junk.
>>246956932do you hate to use a ban on a character you are having troubles fighting against?isnt that what bans are for?
>>246957429yes mandatory niche bans are shit
>>246956932Just have to pick someone in the solo lane who gets infinite stacks off heroes, like raynor
>>246958119ok he gets 20 stacks after 5 minutes meanwhile you're perma losing the beacon/shrine, not a good strat at all my dude
>>246957627what do you mean with "mandatory niche bans"?do you need to ban or not. or you want to only ban azmodans and kaeltaz because that is what people always want to ban because are dumb
>>246808548>be in ranked>first pick is a cho'gall>the enemy picks malth, greymane, tychus>lose gameSasuga

>>246960346depends on the lane. even setting aside all the people that play like it's lol and just pick a lane for 20 minutes you can't expect them to leave bot ds, towers, or warhead much unless the map is way out of control. then you're probably losing anyway.>>246948407it's not even rubberbanding it's power scaling. basically no one wants sub 15 minute games nor much above 20 so it's just ass with no room. teams need to be hugely lopsided to win in 10 or waste many opportunities to end to make it to 30. can't dive fort walls at minute 1 but almost facetank keeps 12 minutes later. shit like that.>>246961908with the wall down 5v3 is just 3 kills if you can get the minions under the tower and the other 2 show. but when's the last time you saw a tank zone for real players.you only lose drastically if you didn't come straight from another lane after a clear. few offlaners do anything without minionsif you only got half a fort the other guy probably didn't finish the wall yet unless it's a bruiser with good autos.
>>246966510Well, its pretty fucking shitty. I seen games with 4-5 lvls up, one fucked fight, Boom, Equalized. It got an awkward way of portraying this. And it can happen in a lot of different scenarios in Hots.Inbefore the "You're just bad" comments.
>>246967309When a team is 4-5 levels ahead they need to fuck up pretty badly to lose a fight and let the enemy catch up. Sure there's a comeback mechanic but it's not easily achieved.
>>246967673Honestly, now its the morons I used to play with. But one lost fight, was enough. One mistake by one idiot or one overextension. Whole match turned.
he is so perfect
>>246969153What do you think angel wings feel like, you guys?
>>246971129Sunrays, intensity differs with each angel. Imperius' wings would probably be scorching hot, Tyrael's would be "hot and confident", Malthael's would be the sunrays that reflect from the moon, and Auriel's would feel like a gentle, warm breeze

>>246977174You'll get there
>>246977174woah so this is the power of the wizard....................................
The biggest problem with heroes like Probius or Murky isn't that their presence is minimal, because their presence can be pretty great even against against a decent team, but it's rather the fact that people don't know how to actually play WITH them, whether it be picks that compliment them or in general how to actually play the map/teamfight around them. So they'll always be in the dumpster and the usual boring safe picks will always be better. That's fucking sad.
>>246979439great reddit post thanks for the insight
>>246979796You're welcome Reddit, like and subscribe for more content just like this and I'll see you on Reddit!
I've been an avid MOBA player for most of my life. I started playing DOTA from Warcraft III around 2004, transitioned to LOL around 2008, and started HOTS in its beta testing. Then around 2013 I had to scale back on gaming significantly because I was going to be a dad. Now that my kids are becoming more independent, I wanted to get back. And out of nowhere, my wife who's mostly been an MMORPG player, said she wanted to try out a MOBA. I immediately shuffled through our options: LOL, DOTA2, HOTS, and SMITE. LOL and DOTA2 are the most popular games but female gamers on LOL are mostly relegated to perma support role and DOTA2 is unforgiving to beginner players. Smite might have been good since both of us would start as noobs, but my wife said she wanted some veteran support, so HOTS it was.As soon as we started playing together, it became evident to me that HOTS is the PERFECT MOBA for new players. The advantage of no last hitting and lack of items is obvious. But what really helps is shared experience because she doesn't just get blown up by opponent players because she fell behind like she would in LOL or DOTA2. Not only that, the game's clear direction of objectives and the variety of game play allows her to contribute to the team without feeling overburdened. This in turn allows her to play ranged carries and tanks just as effectively as supports. And I believe that is the biggest selling point of HOTS for us. Bonus points for shorter games which means "less" (Less, not none) toxic behavior from fellow players, since they can easily just start another game shortly.I really hope that HOTS make a come back because we would like to enjoy the game together for another year or two. The only downsides she feels are the long queue time and lack of skins. Both of which would be easily fixed with more support from fans and Blizzard.
>Amount of times Reddit in this thread>14>More than previous threadsWhy are you faggots obsessed with Reddit?
I just can't stand the kind of righteous know-it-all posting that just reeks of reddit
>>246980894They just use it to describe something that personally offends them, but also makes them look like they're bigger than it. Like, there's this negative connotation to calling soemthing out as "Reddit" that implies "I don't read anything on Reddit and I exclusively use 4chan, the edgy place for outsiders such as myself. Don't mistake me for not being edgy nor a social outcast, because I am you fucking Redditor!". Reason why this is so enticing is because there's this attitude people have towards being "on the outside", it's all cool and hip and shit, whereas if you partake in the most popular shit (Music, movies, Reddit being an extremely popular website) you're just like everyone else. The irony being that this attitude is hiveminded, and they try extremely hard to fit in with one another by parroting the same shit at and around each other the same way the overly positive and fake as fuck people on Reddit do, except on 4chan you just act the opposite and call each other "faggot" and "nigger" so you try to look like you aren't extremely sensitive to being offended by using terms typically seen as offensive. When all else fails, just resort to being "ironic" and "shitposting", get all jokey and shit just to try and save face and not once have to seriously consider how hypocritical and retarded it is. >>246981329The irony being that going out of your way to try and negate someone is indirectly telling everyone that you yourself actually know it all and are self-righteous. You see how that works?

Yeah, that's how the internet works. There's only a limited amount of tubes connected to each game and sometimes those can get clogged and slow down everyone.

>>247027205Is there really any reason to ever pick tormented souls? Feels like ever since they gave malthael cleave and removed the armor it has really low impact.

hey here comes diablo who does more damage than melee assassins while having three times the HP, self healing and two point and clicks for his burstperfectly fine hero btw, maybe even needs some buffs
>>247027724Don't really feel like Tormented Souls could ever be justified over Last rites, but again, why would you pick malth vs 5 ppl with ice block/massive spell armor effects? Although i've played once against nano ana & tormented malth duo, and we got absolutely buttfucked just by these two, 2 other enemy dps might as well not existed.

If someone 1v5 feeds 12 deaths during a ranked game and the whole entire team reports them for intentional dying, why does the team have to suffer point loss for that troll? Or if someone sits under tower shots until game ends, what then? Why isn’t that player barred from playing ranked until they put on their big kid pants?“Just carry them,” I hear you say. Or, “the other team has those people too, so it evens out!”That’s not the point. The point is that THOSE PEOPLE SHOULDN’T BE IN ANYONE’S MATCHES, my team’s or my enemy’s team’s.Hoping that with the HL-TL merge, the devs will figure out this glaringly obvious issue.
How Is Raynor Considered Balanced??Booted up try mode, took the time to turn my allied hero off, and then walked up and blew down a tower and a gate without waiting for minion cover or even stepping out of tower range before the second wave of minions arrived. At tier one; tier 2 he gets a 25% increase to his self-healing uptime.Kept refreshing forts & minions to test how fucking broken this character is at every level; confirmed that at every level getting rooted by the arthas he -- the tank with 3 sources of slows and a root -- is half dead by the time he reaches raynor even with his permanent movespeed ult talent at level 20 and this is without stutter stepping or abusing raynor's baseline permanent 40% uptime on movespeed increase.Get this; at level 20 raynor can solo a fort with no minions ending at full health -- even with a level 20 arthas right there trying to stop himhe has a baseline ten second cooldown on an unstoppable 30% heal. Compare to Leoric -- a tank -- who gets a talent that lets him (SLOWLY) heal 40% of his health with one hundred and twenty second cooldown (which even with best-case conditions can only be worked down to a 60 second cooldown with globes, just tested). I honestly can't think of a tank in this game raynor doesnt out-sustain -- and this him being passively faster than anything but maybe a lunarawhat the fuck is this character and how is he considered balanced??? I've never once had a game against a raynor that didn't feel fucking awful, every time I see him on a loading screen I wish there wasnt a penalty for QQ'ing
>>247055904basically "because hammer is better lol" and how far this really puts them two from the bottom tier trash doesn't seem to matter to blizzard at all. balance in this game is complete shit, blurred to retards because it's 5v5 where you barely feel like you matter if you are losing and almost anything seems like it's good when you are winning surrounded by other 54.99999% (okay according to blizzard) win rate characters.

>>247055904He's a pretty solid character, but he'll get destroyed by burst. Fenix is just as strong, if not more. But yes, he leaves the other auto attack characters in the dust more or less. Wouldn't say he's overpowered though because auto attack assassins are generally kinda low on the list (besides Fenix).

Seeing how "progressive" and "virtue signaling" Blizzard is in Overwatch and to some degree in WoW....is Hots their sneaking under the radar, fan services, TnA game they can do wtf they want with? Feels like the guys they don't want in the "Main office" they send into the hots dungeon under the janitors office in the basement.

The more I play ranked, the more infuriated I get. You simply can't play this game competetive anymore.HL, 50% of the population doesn't belong where they are, Masters playing like utter shit, making bad calls and being overall TERRIBLE at this game, while holding the Master title, while in TL there are tons of boosted people and plat skill level teams who somehow managed to grind their way to Master, while getting roflstomped against actual good players.I swear to god Blizz should reset everyone back to Bronze 5. True bronze players wouldn't experience anything different as they don't understand literally anything about this game at all, and people who don't belong there can actually climb out, no more joke players in higher ranks.
Just because I play the game differently doesn't mean I'm not trying to kill the core. FeelsBadMan

>>247131571ptr should be on monday
>>247124519Also, what is the name of the artist?>>247132348ok
why play anyone other than medivh
>>247132810because in some matches the enemy may get the medivh before you do, so you are forced to play something else.
>>247133032then I alt+f4 because it's already over
>>247133218why is people like this that give up, you dont even know if the other medivh is a retard that dont count his cd and stuff.
>>247133541was a joke, but people are retarded and give up easily. same reason people say "gg let them end" at any point in the game when it's possible to turn it around all the way up to your core being at 1%. as a medivh player I can heartily say most medivhs are dogshit who follow cookie cutter builds. he takes a lot of practice to git gud.
Gotta kill Lili, if you let her grow up she will look like this...
>>247134136sexy (non fat) half naked alex when?
>>247138862I prefer Hots Alex, I mean, that at least look more mother like instead of just being a teenager stick.And is better for the aspect of life to look like a mother, instead of random blood elf.
>>247138975I like teenager sticks (such as Whitemane) but w/e, the current alex looks like more like a disney witch than a mother.
I know we repeat this every week, but this game seems deader than ever
>>247140368a dead game would mean that there is nobody playing.or a game to be alive is suppose to have fortnite numbers... oh wait, people claim how fortnite is dead as well because apex.Every game is dead in that case
It's dead by 20 year old games standards you can barely find 10 players to play brawl within reasonable time
>https://twitter.com/BlizzHeroes/status/955864234272866305Everyone, act surprised

>>247179187>Junkrat>mageI mean... sorta? I guess?
>>247179649most of his damage is ranged spell damage. like I said with >>247179527 expecting a power spike on 13 is retarded and out of the ordinary. here's more examples.>guldan>hanzo>nazeebo>zeratul>lunara>alarak (debatable, not direct power spike)
>>247179939The Highlord is immensely powerful at any stage of the game, please take that back.
>>247179187lolhow desperate are you to defend bad designenjoy your dead game you stupid fuck
>we need a mage
>>247181127>basic ability CD tied to living bomb>chain slows after stunning>ripper air is mobility>conditional spell armor, chomp grants max chaos (redundant), activatable delayed aoe centered on orphea>W slows more, skillshot single-target root, movespeed on autoswow those sure are game changing talents they really make you feel so much more powerful. how desperate are you to beg for azmodan buffs you stupid bronzeshit. you also ignored my second list but I didn't quote you directly so I suppose your bronzeshit brain didn't recognize it. just look at the majority of heroes, getting a power spike on 13 like jaina's icyvein's is abnormal.>guldan: literally all defensive talents>hanzo: literally all mobility talents>nazeebo: toads grant armor, conditional spell armor, iceblock>zeratul: spell shield, autos heal, 15% shield while cloaked after a duration (shit)>lunara: all utility talents. spell armor.>alarak: ways to gain more sadismI'd list their 16's to show what real power spikes look like but I've already spent long enough arguing over nothing with a bronzeshit on a chinese spyware demonstration forum
>>247182215defensive talents are a power spikehaving iceblock is game changing for exampleat 13 azmo gets slow on W??? super usefulor heal on laser, because you're totally using that on an anub, or a diablo, or a garrosh
>>247182629laser range is enough to cast on frontliners during teamfights. if you aren't casting your laser you are confirmed bronzeshit. summon slow is incredibly powerful for your allies and makes it harder for enemies to kite. empowering a wave is pointless and shit since you can already siege down a fucking fort in 0.2 seconds as a team.
>>247179603I like that he seem to be a moba artist.
>>247182629also if you want to complain about shit talent tiers azmodan's level 4 is utter fucking garbage. hellforged is the only one worth taking, I don't know what they were thinking with this tier.
Someone redpill me on the current state of hotsHaven't really played since blizzard announced it was going on life support
>>247185870almost 4 months with no new heroes or events

>>247185870it's fucking trash and dead you don't need anyone to "redpill" you about that just look at the state of this gen now kill yourself faggot
>>247185870The state of the game depends heavily on your rank/mmrI am unironically Silver and the game is basically the same as it was 4 months ago for me.
Are you a person that never give up, or a loser?
>Play against a 4-man premade >Perfect complimentary picks >Get matched with a 4-man premade >Extremely low damage picks that don't compliment each other at all Every fucking time.
why my team bronze while their team GM
>>247188281Because only a handful of people play this game
>>247188281Because they're stupid and have always had the matchmaker go by "Team average MMR" rather than individual-based MMR. I've heard someone say they never had the playerbase to do something like that, which means they're doubly stupid because their genius plan to enter the MOBA market fucking like 4 years too late really backfired on them.

>>247185943>>247186090>>247186131That fucking blows then. I ctrl+f'ed hotsg and I got a result so I thought maybe there was some home. And my update of the game showed that there was a new hero (imperius) which hyped me even morewhy we so dead?
>>247190739>why we so dead?Blizzard cancelled hgc and moved most of the devs to other games.

If Hots had a Map editor mode?Would they be able to have imported characters?or is the "on server hosting" a limitation for that?

One time a girl praised my gameplay
>>247207685how did it feel like?
>>247203094does blizzard still pretend like hots games are 'fast' compared to other mobas and 'unpredictable'. you can call 90% of games by the first obj and most of those are still 25-minute+ slogs with nearly zero possibility of an upset, but hey that one in ten comeback sure makes all those grueling blow-outs worth sitting through. it's a blessing this game has almost no penalty for leaving games, because if it did the playerbase would probably be about a hundred people.
Mommy will save us
>>247210891nothing in special, I knew she would stop playing soon
>>247186707>Silver>You'll be good enough to get out eventually, just like me 2 seasons ago. Now fighting for plat before ranked reset
>>247187505Never gaved up in a ranked game, but i play 1-2 games a day.I would definitely give up at some point if i played like 7-10 games a day.Lets be real, if you're lets say in silver, dont understand how the game works, lost 3-4 games in a row anyone would give up. The reason why frustration builds up is because shit players dont understand the game.If i was in silver-gold for a year without improvement, i would uninstall for sure.
>Towers of Doom>Teammates not coming to the altars twice in a row
>>247216027God damn demons.
>>247211442It's more to do with how most of it just banks on the opponent throwing a lead since the game is autopilot enough that unless the other teamcomp completely outscales the other talent wise all the team in the lead has to do is the safe and correct play every time and the opposition has no chance of winning.especially when structures start to fall and the team with the forts/keeps still standing can just play things slow knowing the enemy has to send someone back to waveclear at some stage
>>247207685I was with a random team in voicechat (3 doods and a cute voice girl). Later I said I was black, then when we lost the dudes started like "nigger ur so bad". But after the game the girl added me and said "I apologize for my friends, it wasnt your fault. I can play with you if you want"
AhemFuck specialist niggers

I was playing Butcher on QM, and the Alarak on my team told me "be safe don't play risky, until you complete the quest" after apparently he was trying to baby sit me and died...But the thing is, I wasn't doing deep dives and stuff, just poking and eating my meat.How often do you try to save others from their own stupidity?
I've had a dream that HOTS was getting a map editor and i was all hyped up. It was weird
tfw not a team player and post rage messages for faggots who play sgt. Hammer, Sylvanas or Cassia for stealin' my kills when I play as brightwing and get reported after every fucking stupid fucking game. Even if Im MVP I still rage. Those fucking retards taking my kills when I damage enemies the most.Am I autistic or just stupid? All I care is getting most kills in the games.
>>247238102I hardly any choice but to pick Butcher and their whole team countered me hard. I kept waiting for Diablo to engage which he never did. Valla throws a fit I am not running into my death while she is the only safe pick. Still ends up dying regardless.
