>>325048172tomorrow is bizzcon, we sure can expect the same amount of content than our threads
>>325048172I think playing female characters helped me become straight.
3rd for best girl
>>325050112Arthas should get some love. He doesn't feel impactful for such a major character.
>play aram>lili goes afk 2 mins in the game because teammates diewhy even bother playing this game at all then. Just go die you subhuman.
>>325053945What would you suggest?I could think the longer you have his aura activated, it gets bigger. for an extra 0.5
>>325054929Give him more tankiness and seeing he is the only death knight in the game he could get some zombie talents, besides army of the dead.
>>325054929Blizzard could also tweak his trait. He wields Frostmourne, a blade that steals souls of the dead. In the game it is just a small mana replenish and a bit of dmg... They were really sloppy when the designed him I think. He just feels like a character that was rushed with no flavor in his kit.
name one hero more fun than maievI'll wait
>>325054929if he kills you he raises your character as his servant for the duration of your death timer
>>325067971>>325058906>>325058538some may think you want him to be overpower if you just go saying "make him stronger"
>>325054929Here are some things I would do to buff my boy.>W root casts faster the closer you cast it to yourself(max range W and longer stays the same, alt+W is near instant), enemies rooted by the center of your W while inside your E are also stunned for the W's root duration.>Rune Tap becomes baseline, health gain nerfed to 3%>Immortal Coil becomes baseline, self-cast bonus reduced to 30%>Remorless Winter becomes baseline, requires a hero to be 4 seconds inside the ring to root>Eternal Hunger is baseline, stacks with the same rules as Muradin's Q, completion requirement is raised by 5 and bonus mana gain (nerfed to 30) is active only after completion. Damage stops stacking upon completion, but it's bonuses are active before completion.>Frozen Wastes linger duration increased by 0.5>Icy Talons aa bonus duration increased by 1 second>Icebound Fortitude gives 35 armor, traited attacks on heroes reduce cooldown by 5 seconds.>Shattered Armor reduction increased to 25 when enemies are hit by the center>Absolute Zero allows Sindragosa to freeze the coreI just want to play him as a tank again. Since I left the gold-plat realms, I couldn't play him anywhere outside of a few niche bruiser games in diamond.
>job for 12 hours>just want to relax a bit before bed>3 games>all lopsided matches, not fun at allI think that was hots for me bros. Honestly, I feel like 9/10 games are just lopsided and boring.
>>325075210Oh yeah forgot about the "burning rage" talent>Biting Cold gives you a passive "burning rage" effect that only works on "pve stuff", and it's DMG is equal to 50% of E's base dmg (at lvl 20 it's 44, same as Muradin's Bronzebeard Rage at 20). You can stack this passive with your E for faster merc clear.
>lore should determine how strong a character should be in-gamewew hotsbabs never fail to reach new levels of retardartion
>>32506426190% of the fucking roster
>>325050112what am i looking at here?
fuck blizzard, fuck niggers, fuck faggots, fuck trannies, fuck brazilians and most importantly fuck jhannies
>>325097501based for fuck trannies, but also cringe for getting banned for abusive text
>>325095712lich king varian
does this game suffer the overwatch syndrome of people sinking hundreds of hours and still suckingi mainly play dota but tried this one for one (1) quick-match today and had some level 400 fuck yelling at me the whole time while we won, and while stats mean fuck-all in mobas and particularly in this one my kda and damage etc were significantly better than anyone else's so i dunno anymore
>>325098668context is key, but then again all games have those kinds of people who were Master/Grandmaster in early years but in 2021 can barely get out of Gold. Just today I saw a 2016 Master portrait having current rank of silver in diamond mmr unranked matches
>>325098668>overwatch syndrome of people sinking hundreds of hours and still suckingthats any game really, some people are just that bad>stats mean fuck-all in mobasit depends, its relative to the hero youre playing and its generally an indicator of how well someone is going, like an uther healing 80k to a lucios 90k means that lucio is doing fuck all healing; butcher or illidan doing 50k damage is fucking insane but doing that on a kael or jaina is pitiful
>>325100038>being this bad at talking shit without getting bannedlmao
>>325097501I dont get why people would get so mad to type like mad mans, to the point of get banned.
>>325107405chat slurs shouldn't merit an account termination, only a leftoid nigger dystopia would that happen, this thing right here is bullshitnigger, faggots, trannys, macacos, chinks, all kill yourself
>>325107812I agree in the sence that the solution should be people just muting others.But at the same time, you are dumb if you cant control yourself at spamming words like that will solve something.
>>325107957sometimes these niggers deserve to be called niggers, the solution is the niggers muting me or blizzard perma banning my chat but not my entire account, thats some nigger faggot shit to do
>>325054929As I've said in previous threads, swap his aura and trait. His trait now activates the aura for 2 seconds any time he deals damage and costs no mana, and while it's active he can't have his move speed reduced below 100%. Bump it up from .5 seconds per tick to .25, reduce damage per tick accordingly, but leave it so the slow stacks twice as fast. Speed up the movement speed of his freeze blast. Make the frostmourne quest baseline, and change activating it to be like samuro Crit where it resets AA cooldown as well so it allows a bit extra burst.
>>325064261she's the most fun hero
>>325097501This is why you need at least 3 accounts
Never understood that the DK core turns you into stone, I thought you just got stun with out moving just because
>>325113285it didn't always have the stone effect
>>325113285Maybe a hero ability/ult for our future Naga hero. Since their design was inspired from Medusa.
yeeesmah magick flows thru the temples*inhale*GAH DEE UNS
the secret to storm league is to just play dehaka
>WoW removes garrosh calling sylvanas a bitch>meanwhile HOTS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnkb0eWxRVA&t=10sthe last bastion of based left at blizzard... cant believe tomorrow's the end lads...
>>325115174I like Dehaka but how to I explain to my retards carefully that I'm not blowing my Z to show up to a 4v5 a talent tier behind?
>>325097501How do you get banned from a game not moderated? I called people niggers and spics for three years with no consequence
>>325117694yeah sure based niggers if you ask me, these faggots perma ban you for chat issues
>>325119157no I didn't ask you
>all heroes are free to playwhats going on bros..
>>325120387Probably for blizzcon
>>325120387during blizzcon they all go f2p
>try quick memes again>whole match is still just random shit that means nothing and it's the last 5 minutes that creates a winner>people still get pissed it works like this You think after 5 years they get it.
>It's another "Team keeps staggering deaths and refuses to stop fighting when down several bodies" episode>in ranked
I love my wife uther
>realize my team is absolute trash>no one helping each other>immediately default into solo pushing and trying to do as much siege as possible for siege master so I can at least show up on the trophy page after we loseAnyone else do this?
>when I start reporting abathur players again I always get emails back from blizzard that they punished someone for being afk. Maybe that's the norm? Reporting abathur players because they are subhumans?
why does he hate the slug?
>>325138608why the fuck did I post this as greentext
>>325139995It's the only way you know how to communicate your thoughts anymore.
>only get utter shitheroes in aram>lose>go back to QM>get utter shit teammates or fucking Abathur Illidan/Samuro cheese on the enemy team>loseIt's time to uninstall this fucking game. I'm so done. Nothing but losing the past 10 days.
Got time for one bronze league game, maybe two. on Hanamura, bets?
>memed myself into taking suppression pulse every game because it's a huge blind>start taking beam>it actually gets kills>the 20 wipes teamsI'm back in my groove, fuckers.None of yall in mid diamond queue for any matches for the next few days.
>>325144641pushed their shit in hard. I blame their nova being worthless though.
was a fast one, so got time for a second. I get to join the other side! least we missing the ana player.
>>325141553QM is clownmode. Don't even bother taking it seriously.
>>325145641All in on Blue. Butcher will eat you and Diablo won't stop him.
>>325145916The one time we get a butcher that doesn't suck, we instead get an abathur that slaps azmodan in mid lane and dies to demons. yaaaay
>>325124491Or better yet>Someone tries out Hots>Their entire opinion of the game is based on "blind pick but picks happen before you queue in">They start comparing their game's ranked mode to qm
>>325150704>"Masters in HotS is Diamond in LoL">"HotS is too easy for me">never climbed out of silver in either gameI fucking hate people who play video games.
>>325127112>tank respawns>team runs into a 3v5 without waiting for the tank to walk back>tank runs into a 1v5 while the 3 are respawning>repeat until defeat
>scarra>thijswhat's going on
>>325153473>video game I favor/play>made for high IQ and skilled superior individuals>vidya you like>made for smelly and plebian retardsThat's the objective truth.
I'm here to ___!
I'm thinking of trying this game, but I hate grinding out ranked ladders in games. Does this have a good casual mode or is it like LoL where everyone plays ranked and casual is just the retard league?
Is it normal to google what a deer's asshole looks like for better Lunara fantasy immersion?
>Blizzcon pretending HOTS doesn't existOH NO NO NO
>>325161737QM is pick the heroes you want and join randoms on matches that may be unfair.and there is ARAM
>>325161737let me put it this way, the game is much harder to understand than league
>>325145252>9k hero damage azmoJesus
>>325145252damn look at you having success with the most broken ranged assassine in the game! wowie
>>325166963Friends that played mainly LOL tried Hots with me and at the start they were like deer in the headlights totally confused with all the rotations and running around getting camps and objectives. Which is normal because in LOL they just stay in their lane for the first 20 minutes and then they run around like headless chicken until someone gets caught. Also they bitched that you can't carry in this game. But is the game harder to understand? I'm not really sure it's just different pace than other mobas.
>>325161737You have:>QMBlind pick, but the picks happen before you even queue in, so everyone plays what they want to play, ignoring team comp, map, etc. WARNING: Match fairness may greatly vary, but if your/enemy team has a healer/tank, then so does yours. TL;DR clown fiesta that shouldn't be taken seriously.>ARAMYou get 3 random heroes to choose from, everything else is standard aram stuff. Queues are pretty much instant.>UnrankedEquivalent to normal draft, each team gets to pick/ban heroes like in ranked modes, but nothing is at stake here. Good for practicing heroes in a standard comp environment. The price you pay for such luxury is longer queue times (~1-3min, for EU at least).>Storm LeagueThis games ranked mode, can go either solo or with a party of any size. Queue times vary greatly depending on rank, and party size.If you're gonna go with Unranked, i recommend saying in draft chat/match chat that you're new, so your teammates can give you a general idea what to do in the bronze/silver rank wastelands. Side note: Don't be surprised if you get the same map 5 times in a row as your first matches, since you get put into "new player queue".>>325168891>Tychus is brokenDid i miss something?
>>325169362>Also they bitched that you can't carry in this game.This is as a legit complaint. XP is shared. Win your 'lane', so what, you're still 2 levels behind the other team, your contribution was just a dent in the failure that is your team. And the matchmaker fucking hates win ratios that aren't even and will kick your ass to keep you in place. If you start thinking you're a real tough guy it will give you potatoes for teammates. Actual non-sentient potatoes. But grandmasters can maintain a high win ratio despite all this so this Blizzard product is perfect like all the others according to the community (which keeps shrinking for some reason).
>>325169362>Also they bitched that you can't carry in this gameBecause your friends tried to brute-force carry with [number]-kills and nothing else, instead of playing the map. Probably because "why should i push if i don't get gold?", when pve stuff is the main exp source in this game. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of heroes that snowball and obliterate if you're good at them and the stars align, but since the XP is shared between your team, most "carries" come from smart macro play that the enemy team ignores. For example: capturing a siege camp right as the obj is about to start, so someone is forced to either go clear the camp and lose obj 5v4, or stay on obj and potentially lose fort/keep. Getting "First Blood" also isn't as powerful, since heroes at lvl 1-2 give the same amout of exp as 1 minion wave.There are many "ifs" and "whats" when it comes to rotations/solo laning. Sometimes you'll be asked to roam as 4 man, and other times you'll find out that on [map] the solo lane is on BOT and not TOP. Hell, some map OBJ are worse than some of the camps on that map. It also isn't uncommon to just "skip" obj when you're behind on exp. Camp timers, obj timers, special map interactions etc., it's all you have to learn via practice, and not just through playing 3 matches and saying "game SUCKS i go to bed". I'll leave some TL;DR points to keep in mind:>Soak is important, but if 4 ungas want to go X, then you should probably come along, even if it's stupid and loses you plenty exp>When the solo laner goes to do a camp, someone should go to his lane to soak exp>NEVER fight when you're a talent tier down (7,10,13,16,20)>Install minimap dlc. People in hots aren't obligated to ping missing lane enemies unless you're about to get ganked, yet you stayed on the lane/place/whatever. A warning is always nice, but it's not something you can blame on others when you get your shit kicked in.Take your time to learn, it will "click" eventually.
>>325171382>Win your lane>still lose gameGee, it's almost like it's not universal to hots, and it's a thing in all mobas.>Forced WR boogeymanYou are where you belong. Once you git gud enough you can advance.
>>325169362because you cant build x item to counter the enemy team; they got auto attackers build a thornmail, lots of cc, banshee's and merc treads, need hp regen, well theres a fuck ton that do that. you need to understand intuitively what each hero does, just remembering doesnt really, and you need to understand how a lot of different things on how heroes interact with each other.prime example is to never pick liming laser against genji, its a liability if he has three brain cells to rub together; or pick block talents against tychus, tass or overwatch heroes; or never be alone when illidan has the hunt; or remember that bodyblocking exists and you can trap people or allies by just standing in the right spot; or naz wall prevents dashes like varian or cassia fend, but not leaps that ignore unit collision, like muradin or artanis, but it will trap dehaka while dark swarm is active; heroes that summon terrain will fuck up your pathing so you have to manually path around themunderstanding the sheer amount of nuances in the game is really the only other way to get good, since just being good at a hero will plateau quickly since theres no items, knowing how to lane is still important.
>>325172372>leaps that ignore unit collision, like muradin or artanisOr better yet: Understanding that "jumps" don't actually give you any "height", and if you attempt to "jump" over a root area, you will get caught.
>>325172090I'm sorry, I forgot to include an apology, that I really love this game, Blizzard is my favorite developer I own all their games, and I thank the devs for making such a wonderful product and that this is only a minor minor complaint and I'm still really enjoying this slowly dying game.
>>325172915well theyre leaps since they ignore collision, but you can still be hit by on hit effects like aba mine, theres a video of a falstad flying over a bunch of mines and dying
>>325156613This shit happens in literally every fucking elo, it should be a bannable offense.
so wehre to watch the blizzcon, maybe they lied and there will be hots news in it, as a suprise
>>325145252>azmo still pushing while his core diesI can respect a man devoted to his craft
Is it hard to like Tyrael simply because most people are too dumb to stand in his ult?>Big team fight>Shield up and muscles in>Scatter enemy>seal off part of them from the fight>Fight reaches its deciding moment as your team bunches up and the enemy team is ready to drop a fat load on them>all according to kekaku>Ult Circle>If the team stands and delivers right now....>Healer walks out of circle>Enemy team follows>Rest of team goes to peel>Left alone in circle swatting at some backline mage and body blocking them>Team dies>Left alone>Die and allah ackbar some random squishy to deathIs this the fate of Tyrael? Should I just take Judgment because people are retarded? Anduin's protection circle is far better at illustrating what it does visaully, Tyrael's is just another aoe.
When are they going to make legacy servers for when this game was good (prior to the stealth and tower ammo update)?
>>325173592He forgot this part>Team wipes before Tank is there>Someone starts rapidly pinging tank and says something like>WTF REPORT DIABLO. Doesnt team fight.>Complains the entire rest of the game because your team didnt win first objective
i launched hots for the first time in a long time and got the blizzcon mounts but i can't find them on my collection, is there a bug going on or something?
>>325181621Why did you actually pay for the ticket?
>>325181621Tracer only mount :^)
>>325181621if you paid for the tocked, you should have gottern tracer, and that is her exclusive mount, you go into specials or something
How beginner friendly is hots for people who have never played a moba or rts?
>>325182889probably more beginner friendly than other moba's, but some basic understanding of top down control might be required.
>>325182889Mechanically, it's easy to pick up. Playing the tutorials will teach you most of what you need to know. Having someone to play AI games with you will help you learn the rest
>>325181074>muradin doesn't want to just E/walk in and die like a retard>"faggot: passive mura=lose"
This explains the lack of Hotshttps://youtu.be/kTAiUYsblVA
>>325188381Cringe, turned it off as soon as I heard the bad VA
Will they ever rerun events? I haven't played in years and when I returned I got sad that I missed out on a bunch of cool looking events.
>>325190006You can buy everything from past events with shards when the season comes around. No need to rerun them
>>325182889I don't think RTS is required to be able to play Hots (maybe for Abathur and Vikings but I never touch those heroes either). I can't compare it to the other mobas out there in terms of beginner friendliness though, no clue how it holds up. But I guess the 3 talents per tier are easier to handle than the LOL itemshop?
>the hots twitch channel is live for blizzcon>no hotslel
>>325197951m-Maybe they have a big surprise for HotS!
what anime character will they invite to the game?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IH4VGMlG6uk
>>325199646Davion the Dragon Knight.
This is our final stand. What happens here will echo through the ages. Regardless of outcome, they will know that we played with honor. That we fought for the freedom and safety of our game
>the cinematics we used to get>double hero releasesI want to go back
>>325200784You are almost as embarrassing as redditors advertising for a petition to make blizzard revive hots.
>>325200878and how are you aware of what redditors are doing, big guy?
this hurts to watch in more than one way
>blizzard arcade collectionBlackthorne is comming
>donate to charity>get a 15 year old basic monkey pet>maybe also a sloth if you donate slightly more :^)
what link are you guys using

lmao no HotS content for BlizzCon, fucking rest in peace, bros.
its been fun brosthis is my last time on /hotsg/. wish you all the best
>>325207252I'll see you tomorrow anon
>throwing shade at overwatch heroes in HOTScarbot is actually based???
>>325206926to be fair even Overwatch got shafted.
>shitting on OW characters wew lad
>>325207252nooo :( please we need everyone we can get
>>325208095who wouldn't? OW+Nexus shit KILLED the game
>>325182889This game is a moba?
>>325208005Carbot had more soul than all the ceremony
Heroes of the Storm Remastered when?
I expected nothing yet I still got blueballed.>We're very diverse and oh yeah hots exists btw check out our ESPORTSThese faggots could've at least mentioned the ongoing community-hosted hots tournaments
how do we get rid of qhira
>>325212239A reaction time under 10 seconds when she attaches herself to someone.
>>3252122391.pick uther2. type NIGGER DOWN every time your stunlock killls her
>Andariel is not Cencored for new sensibilitiesSkin of her for Kerrigan when?
>>325213539Even on D4 will not cover her tits
I quit years ago and came here to laugh at your dead gamehaha.... :(
>>325214178I also laugh at this dead game
>>325213539that would be censored for old sensibilitiesnow she's just born that way and expressing herself. male gamers will have to learn to be tolerant.
>>325180831The problem with Sanc is that it's like trying to mosh your own teamThe aoe is pretty small so most pubbies are afraid that when the duration ends they'll just get wombod because they won't be able to do enough damage in those 3 seconds that it's down.It's the ult for when you have a highly coordinated team or you're just onpoint with another melee hero and can give them invulnerable when they go balls deepJudgement is just so much easier to use because it's a guaranteed lock-on that also isolates the target for a moment. And if you're not in a 5-stack you should be playing bruiser Tyrael anyways because it can feel awful when your team refuses to take advantage of Smite 7.
>>325212239Bro Qhira is balanced. Activision loves balence. Its perfectly normal for a her to be able to have a kit that can stun 2 times, relocate, engage, become invulnerable and heal. That's all a normal kit is, and further more.... oh wait that's just her E.... that literally is just her E. Muradin hammer, artanis triangle, and Medivh protection in one move. Yep that checks out as a reasonable ult.... oh wait 16 second cooldown? Oh nope. Tottaly reasonable. It's fine because she can be CCd and focused, which is a unique weakness she has that other heroes dont. Yep.
>>325215597she was designed to have just 1 stun, but not adding the microstun at the start caused tons of bugs and problems.
>>325215501I think it might be reasonable to have sanc travel with him at cost of himself not being invulnerable and silenced and minus 30 armor or something. Or at least make it obvious ala anduin.
>>325215847>everyone around him is invulnerable>meaning skillshots pass right through them>right to Tyrael who now takes increased damageIt's reasonable if you want to throw the game.
>>325215820Micro stun plus second stun makes it so she can attach to the peeler and use the movement to get to the back line. Peeler gets doubled cucked trying to react in between stuns and she gets put in place to drop an ult on the backline while the peeler sits in .75 stun. Smarter Qhiras will do this much the way that smarter butchers know to lamb someone with peel instead of their charge target. Or rush someone further back in order to get behind who you want to body block.
>>325215987Not really think about it. If you're smart youd drop speed boost before ult, then have an easy time dodging. After it you've got shield plus sword to relocate and worst case your team move up and you can ALLAH ACKBAAAAAR
>>325216560>I will never play tyrael in silver and pick all trait talentsFeeding was fun, i thought i was being useful.
>>325217450>tfw never go to use his quest that rewards you for feeding
>>325169412>Did i miss something?He's slightly overtuned still. Also, he has a decently low skill floor with a decently high skill ceiling, so he's viable for almost any player. His kit is above average, and his talents mostly consist of increasing his survivability or getting rid of his weaknesses. He's not broken, he's just the best 8/10 hero in the game, able to be used in damn near every comp on every map.
when's the hots panel? did I miss it already, I just tuned in
>>325220913There was nothing hots related. Maybe the hots-branded carbot panel will throw us a bone, but i wouldn't get my hopes up.
>>325221021Real talk though, considering how shitty activision's eye of sauron corrupts and destroys anything it gazes upon, aren't we better off not being looked upon? Yes yes, this is severe coping. At least we aren't getting BAD news right?
>>325221483>At least we aren't getting BAD news right?They have already announced another rework.
>>325221483At least we aren't getting spoonfed LGBTQOMGWTFBBQ and BLM propaganda, AND we get to keep sexy skins/models. What's even sadder is when i tuned in for the Starcraft Legacy stream i saw that the entire chat is fucking korean. Might be cope, but just barely surviving is better than finding out next morning that your favourite game is literally no longer playable
>>325221923seeing how they keep D2 ladder online i dont think blizzard will shut down online on anything. It just not worth the negative PR. better keep 1 guy alive to hit the reset switch on storm league seasons

>>325224287yes, art was done on 2020, probalby to release around 2022
>>325224287The reaper valla skin I've been asking about for years. Finally
>>325232859Should she scream "die die die" while doing the spin?
>>325233537I would hope so
Please please please every other blizzard game is getting some kind of remaster or legacy servers please give us hots legacy servers. Please take me back to those days before Qhira and Tracer and all the other shitty annoying characters they've released.
>>325236246No. You will get more creative characters. Like a ghost who has no body and has no abilities except one passive that kills one enemy hero at random every 60 seconds.
>>325238920Too bad they nerf actual creative characters like abathur to the point where they're not even worth playing anymore. Every new character just has some annoying bullshit gimmick that isn't fun or creative it's just fucking retarded and broken. I would be stunned to find out they play tested hogger even once before release.
>>325240429Hogger is fun but way over tuned on numbers. Honestly thought these hyper mobile character have like another passive of just being hard to even fucking click on. Even if you're Tychus or Raynor it's hard to click tracer or wall ride lucio pooping around like a peanut on cocaine.
>>325240429>actual creative characters like abathur>Every new character just has some annoying bullshit gimmick that isn't funabanigger spotted
wtf, Crendor is streaming hots right now.
>>325250131who was crendor?
>>325250223one of the laziest/mellowest wow streamers ever. But the reason i know him cause bloodbowl streams.
>>325250324>bloodbowlis he punchy or a faggot runner
>>325250481plays different teams, dark elves right now, khemri last season. I guess, sort of middle of the road overall. He's too mellow to really focus on one thing.
Why even bother putting Orphea and Dark Nexus Deathwing in the Blizzcon art...Bros... They could have at least teased a new hero...
>>325251310because a game about all of blizzards franchises needed a mascot, this makes perfect sense and isn't fucking retarded
>>325251310there is no reason to tease a hero, because we may not get a hero until July, or even next blizzcon. that would be like teasing 10 months in advance.now, on the next season, we may get a new rework.Hope it is Probius,
people really running it hard in SL this week
did hots get anything announced at blizzcon?
>>325254491we were mentioned in passing in the list of all games blizzards ever made twice. And I think carbot is supposed to do fan art or something for us in a panel?
I might have fucking caught the covid, so forced off work for a few days. might as well do some shitty bronze league! bets?
>>325256457feeling red, valeera players are a coinflip and I'm calling tails
>>325256627a fair bet. I've had good luck on this map with sledge muradin tho.
last pick tlv... again. sigh.
>>325076652Mine have all been like that too. Each time I lose it's a fucking slogfest while the enemy struggle to finish, but the games I win are completely unsatisfying stompfests that end in 10 minutes. This feels like such shit
>>325257894that went... very well.
>>325254957>carbotSo fucking no one, essentially
Li Li's blinding wind should be a skillshot. Right now she's just fucking mindlessly easy to play.
Where can I find information on drafting?
Evens I play nothing but healer/supportOdds tank
>>325270623Tankchads rejoice but still secretly thank the healers, unless they were absolute dicks. Then fuck them. Literally.
>>325267040Don't have a link, but here's some tips of mine:>Make sure to have someone with reliable waveclear, preferably a bruiser, but making sure one of the assassins can also waveclear just in case is even better.>Is your pick easily counterable, and removes you from play if countered? If yes, then you should probably pick last. On a side note, tanks tend to be the safest picks, and they should lock first, unless there's some "flavor of the month" meta pick, then they'll probably insta-lock themselves.>If you want to force someone else to pick in the last seconds, hover over a character you don't own. If there are no other avaiable players to pick, one of you will be forced to pick a random hero.>Don't try Master/GM strats in gold/plat, you'll just hurt yourself
>>325267040Notparadox's guide is ok.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCevQCJdLPU

After hard switching to DPS from being mostly a dedicated tank/healer my win ratio has suffered massively. Nice to see I was actually having a pretty positive impact, it never felt that way.I sure as fuck am not now.
>>325285906It's much easier for a healer or tank to lose the game than it is a DPS. I would main healer in ranked just to keep retards from throwing
>>325285768>whitemane>HOTS: expand on the design now you make a unique model of her instead of being bound to the WOW HU female model>WOW: make her a deathknight>HOTS: adapt sexy girl from past games, make sure she's sexy and exaggerate her sexiest feature>nublizz: just take whatever your chink sweatshop put together
>>325285906killing shit always had the most impact and is the most fun for people (even if everyone else does poorly you still at least can make a play, rather than heal someone up and then see them lose it all in a single orb hit). Yet MOBOS and OW decided to force at least 20% of the players to play tank and 20% to play healer, without putting in the effort to make them fun or powerful
>>325285906There are 5 ppl in every team that can play ranged assasin but you can not and should not leave 2 most important roles on those who cave in first to fill em.
>>325286619HotS was too good for this gay world.
>>325286042I can't main healer anymore. It's suffering to chase a team that isn't there.>>325287017>you still at least can make a playThis. Losing is a lot more fun at least.>>325288671Just can't do that anymore. Funnily enough the first lesson I've been absorbing as a ranged assassin is playing without relying on either of those roles being there.
>>325285768why not use the real cassia instead of the cosplayer?
>>325292161Because the guy who made that pic doesn't play these games.
>>325285768looks like Abby reloaded
>>325293000Checked and kek'd
>>325292161because amazon nova is attempting to recreate D2 amazon with modern graphics while cassia is a modern reimagining. Also shes an old hag so who cares about her
>>325292461who the fuck plays HOTS
>>325298297I'm just here to complain about losing.
>uther heals on cd are less than a bw who does nothingWhy do people even like this faggot?
>20 minute queue>on a SaturdayI thought this game wasn't dead
>>325302090Armor's damage mitigation, and personally full E is quite fun and can enable alpha-tier heroes that lack zippy zoppy now i'm suddenly on the other side of the map heroes.The change to 20 divine shield is a fucking crime let me tell you that however
>>325302551Damage mitigation means nothing when you can't heal. Alex, Auriel, BW, Lucio, Stukov are all better
>>325302649That's why he's popular on double support lineups with 2 high damaging assassins honestly
>>325302090Don't you shit talk Daddy U have you tried not eating every single poke thrown your way and sustaining your own ass for a change
>>325302090>stunlocks your shit>good enough to be played as a main tank with permament 50 armor at 20, or a bruiser that just stunlocks shitUnfortunately, just don't play him as a main healer. He's either a main tank/double support.
having a butcher on your team is basically a death sentence because you always lose the game with those fucking 0 meat retards.
>>325306505yeah, happened to me just now>butcher ends game with sub 100 meat>we lose>afterwards he is on the enemy team>ends the game with 330 meat:)))))))))))))))))))))))))
>4 losses in a row>4 wins in a row>forced 50/50 is a myththat doesn't add up, like most of what /hotsg/ says
>>325304392the butchers that dont complete their quest, I call them vegan butchers......I have being a Vegan butcher some times
>>325145641>you get 3 of your former opponents>afk splitpush azmo still on other teamI would say you almost got lucky.
>"""heroes""" panel>it's just carbot animating the next short

>blizzcon almost over>they pretend hots doesn't exist>chink new year was a week ago>game stuck on the christmas eventThey're going to pull the plug, right?
>>325324890its the same shit of content drought between christmas and spring like last year, stop whining. we'll likely get a new event late march/ early april
>>325326343>new weekly event>server shutdown every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

>>325298156>he doesn't want to get raped by a tall milfy amazoncunnyfags out Out OUT!

Bronze league clown show bets. don't expect anything, but still get disappointed edition.
>>325378538blue team because Murky is broken in bronze
>>325378538red team is designed to devour idiots but like the other anon mentioned, there's a murky with the name HateClimbing
>>325378612>>325378909feeders gonna feed thoas fucking Mei i had highest hero damage for a good portion of the game.
>>325379575>Maiev 8 deaths vs barely any CC
Got him on my team again. He didn't suck so...
>>325379953Have to go with blue on this one
>>325380784yep. Love how xul commented halfway through match about bronze league too.
Eh, last one tonight maybe. Looks not bad.
>>325273757>>325277027ultimately I just find that I don't know enough about the various heroes to know who does what best in a given situation/map.like in the video he mentions johanna is good on "Tomb of the Spider", but why is that? And what other heroes have specific maps they're good at? How would you know?
>soloqueue abathur>loseI finally found a way to tank my MMR and still have fun!Now I understand his appeal, no matter what goes wrong you never feel directly responsibleVERY comfy
>tfw I can't stop playing ZaryaOn paper she look so fucking boring, but for some reason I'm having so much fun. It's like I'm playing every hero role at the same time.
What'd you guys think of the HotS update at BlizzConline?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlWgdta32qk
>>325381407bloodlust worked perfect here.
>>325381561she deals extra damage in pve. its also a small map so her relative immobility is less damaging. Lots of avenues for her hold easy cause of the walls.As for how do you know if a map is good, its mostly experience. For example, Diablo is amazing on Immortals, but only ok on hanamura, I'm guessing you can guess why based on his kit.
>>325382001Was HotS even mentioned or showed once? Even Starcraft received some attention.
>>325381561also, this is a prime example of how this moba is not a simplistic game. yes it has more casual friendly features like short game length and no items. But instead to really get good at the game you not only need to know what every hero does, but at minimum what every hero's power spikes are, on which maps, which builds, and which match ups. It's definitely an easier game to start, but i'd say its got a far far rougher mid-skill/learning phase than any other moba.
>>325382001>half of Blizzcon today was solely watching some digital "artists" mumble while they draw basic linesis this real
>>325384308>is this realYes.
>>325382390One frame advertisement for all heroes being free for a month and later Carbot teasing next HeroStorm episode, featuring Hogger.That's all I could remember from the utterly dull stream that was mostly cosplayfags and some noname e-"celeb" showing off his faggy friends arcade gamemodes on Starcraft 2 and Warcraft 3 Refunded.
>>325386019>next HeroStorm episodehecking POGGERS I'm so excited it's really wholesome
>>325383136I honestly never thought about it like that, since all of the things you mentioned i just took for granted. In reality a new player knows none of these and their first ranked games can end in a disaster because of that.On a side note, speaking of items:>You have 6-8 viable/meta items per champion. Some of these are shared between multiple champions, all other items are very situational or borderline useless>Each talent tier in hots has 1-3 viable/meta picks (out of 3-4 possible) that are custom-tailored for your hero * 7 tiers * the amount of heroes in game>The only real drawback of "no items" is being unable to go for le whacky "mage who autoattacks really hard xD"
>>325386113Wait... POGGERS? Didn't you mean to say HOGGERS :D?
>>325389147Even assuming you learn a hero perfectly after playing them once, you have 90 some games to just play them all. That's 30 hours give or take? it does partially explain why low level games are complete shit shows. Imagine taking stitches cause you see pudge, and get matched against malthael or tychus.
>dota/league tourist tires out the game>says x or y doesn't make sense because it's not a 100% translation/copy of x or y in league/dota
Is there anywhere in the game that tells you what each status effect does and what it looks like?
>>3253919022 seconds on hots wikihttps://heroesofthestorm.fandom.com/wiki/Status_Effect
>>325392251I meant in game. New players aren't bothering with a wiki
>>325392348>>325392251It also doesn't show the visuals for slows and reduced damage
>>325392481>click slow page>see pic relatedI can however agree that for whatever reason "damage reduction" animation isn't shown on the wiki, but has a distinct visual animation (along with some abilities also visually shrinking you).
>>325391902There has been a bunch of people asking for things like that. Simple, quick, learner info. Might be an interesting niche for someone youtube oriented. Not a how-to-play series, but just a what-is-what series.
so where is this huge content patch people said were in the datamine oracles?
>>325384457how the mighty have fallen.i was once f5f5f5f5f5f5 on amazon on day of preorder start.now i wouldnt trust any blizzproduct until 2 weeks after release and then buy cheapest option possible.i looked forward on blizzcon for weeks. now i barely am interested in summaries day after.times change and no thats not tbecause iam older. its because products have less and less soul.golden age of hots was the last glimpse of golden blizzard.
>>325382001to be fair carbot have more soul than the other departments
Hogger is literally Yrel, but better in every single way
>>325406852Yrel's cock is bigger, so no
>>325307389So, it wasn't the Butcher's fault?
>>325412215looks that way, butcher is extremely dependent on his team to do something, since all hes really good for is the cc until he collects the meat
why do people hate yrel?
>>325413878Takes more effort to do the same or worse than other tanks.
>>325414042because she is a bruiser?
>>325413878Because they think she can unga bunga kill everyone like Imperius, and get mad when they discover than she can't
>>325414118She doesn't "bruise" for shit and have a tank kit. So yes, she's a shit tank.
>>325414339if they let her impale others like imperious with her cock, then we will be into something
>>325415768I hate you so, so much
Why do I love playing Deckard so much regardless of the match's outcome?
>>325416779Because you have singe digit IQ
>>325245176>click onIm gonna teach you a secret techniqueits called A-movedon't tell anyone else friend, just for you :)
Just stop plaing QM anon, it'll only cause frustration, just so SL and if you feel a loss streak is coming hop and a smurf and chill there.
How many heroes should I be able to play semi okayish before hopping into SL?
>>325430885Based on the players I've seen I'd be amazed and happy to have you as a teammate if you had one.
>>325048172>get butcher on my team>he feeds>loselike pottery
>>3254308851 if you want to go all in on being a one trick pony.
Is this game still alive? Last I played it was put on maintenance mode and had a massive drop in playerbase.
>>325432042>posted this>just noticed the 20+ minute gap between postsWell I got my answer
>>325426885but... my hero attack the minions instead of him
Is deathwing even good? All that wind up in his abilities make me seethe>>325432042You can still play QM on NA or europe as if nothing happened. UD is more active on europe, and depending on your rank ranked can be a nightmare
>>325433436you have to play ahead, and know when you are good to go as form one, or zone as form 2.
>>325433739Probably. I feel like he's worthless in clown fiestas where you don't have tanks or people to take the heat off from you. I feel like you have great potential to join into fights that are just starting but if you start something you will just soak so much damage it's insane. Thinking about it my best times as him is when i cataclysm into a fight in an enclosed space or jump into people. I guess i should consider him more of a disruptor instead of a frontline that's always there. Also the bastard should have at least 5% movespeed with some of his abilities/talents, unless people are hugging you it's a challenge to keep them slowed via lounges
>>325434791In QM he's 50/50But everyone I know who actively plays him retains a 60%+ wrUnstoppable and 40 armor are broken as fuck up until the point they completely nerf his kit into unusable garbage, but until then he's still a very good hero in capable hands.
A Zuljin with 250 stacks can win agains a Butch with 200 meat in 1v1?
>>325438251If Butcher lands his ult, he wins
>>325438251If you count proper heroic usage then no.Unless he's at a serious level disadvantage I don't think there's a hero in this game that can 1v1 a stacked Butcher while they're under lambs, or if they can actively dodge or live through lambs they probably lack the damage to fight butch solo, unless there's some serious outplaying going on like with Samuro clone shenanigans. ZJ can pop Taz'dingo before impact but then he's going to be wasting a serious amount of it's duration and probably die after lambs is over anyways.
Is getting good with the probe even worth it nowadays? Feels like he's a weird trap mage
>>325438251I win 1v1 against butch but with 500 stacks so, no
God damn. I haven't played since the Blizzard gutted the dev team, and Valla hasn't gotten a single skin?
>>325441326there's a mecha one or something but it's part of some event so it's not often in the shop
>>325438251zj probably needs more stacks than that and has to get his ult off but can beat butcher lategame
So realistically speaking, who would you say is the weakest hero at the moment? Either too niche and someone covers his role(s) better or simply undertuned.
>>325443423I would say probious, You are just to dependant on your pilons, and they die super easly, or take way to long to replace them.
>>325443423Nova and they'll never touch her because if they buff her, she'll dominate QM
>>325444586Nova does more work in ranked games than Valeera does.
>>325445476Nova has one of the worst win rates in ranked play
>>325445663This ain't the place for your statistics without context.We're an anecdotes and gut feeling board.
>>325446345My bad, I'll fix my postI have never seen a Nova win in SL. Whether it's on my team or the enemy team, the team with Nova always loses
>>325447412I'm a mid diamond shitter but all the Nova picks I've seen just dominate people.Q build is great poke against frontline heavy teams (or even squishies if you don't suck) and can whittle down tanks before a real engagement and her W build is great for just deleting people.Valeera is the "jump on someone and hope the enemy team is too stupid to do anything about it" hero. Sure you can pick and choose your targets but the slightest amount of interference and her kill capability really drops off.She's tanky as sin and can navigate fights well but she just has a lot of issues securing her own kills if the enemy team isn't playing like shit.Just the dangers of being a melee stealth assassin.
>>325447412I dont think nova is the problem herself, most nova players are just troglodytes ...The occasions I do play her tend to be fun and I rack up lots of kills and top hero damage. That being said, she is reliant upon her teammates actually being able to soak lanes and do siege damage, as she is pretty worthless in that respect even compared to other gank assassin type of heros.
I have less time to play these days but I still log on every now and then to throw a game with afkbathur and there's NOTHING you can do about it
>>325443423Butcher. He's not properly designed to deal with the powercreep in this game and feels lacking overall. He's also a straightforward hero to counter pick because his build options are limited
>>325463535Just cause you made me think about it, what would you do to rework him?His kit is basically alright, it's just his trait and general fragility in a team fight that's at issue. The only thing that I can think of is like changing his brand to give 1 meat each time he AA a branded hero, and give his trait an activation that consumes meat for health. Something like 5% HP regained at the cost of 2 meat per tick and it's togglable like zuljin trait.
>>325464276I think he needs an overhaul instead of tweaking numbers.Butcher's regen is massive when he's hitting things, it's getting CC'd that causes him to actually die.Turning meat into a resource is a neat idea, rather than making is a sideways dehaka trait make it something he consumes for damage instead.
>>325464276>what would you do to rework him?Bring back meat healing, allow his E unstoppable to linger for awhile as he basic attacks, make the brand ms increase baseline when moving towards branded targets, furnace reduces armor Don't remove his counterplay entirely(blinds and healing reduction should always fuck him over), but make him feel more like a relentless pursuer and less like a wimpy retard who dies after charging in.
>>325466236>Bring back meat healing, allow his E unstoppable to linger for awhile as he basic attacks, make the brand ms increase baseline when moving towards branded targets, furnace reduces armorAnd also basic attacks deal 20% max hp damage and he's immune to CC and gets triple the healing from his brand and has extended AA range and passively generates meat holy shit you trannies are delusional
Tbh I see no reason why Yrel cant be considered a tank. Literally all her talents are tank shit. If anything maybe she could have her damage dropped and just tank her up.
Tbh I see no reason why Yrel should be be considered at all.
Bronze league early evening edition. Bets?
into what maps or comps is ragnaros good?
>>325468840All in on Blue. Deathwing will put out nothing, Li will hit some skillshots but barely deliver any pressure, Diablo will set up great slams for no one to follow up on and Raynor will put out a third of his damage potential. Brightwing will of course be MVP and provide great healing for Diablo who barely needs it.
>>325469483I manage a ~70% wr with him by spamming him on Braxis and Infernal ShrinesComps doesn't matter as much since he can flex between a psuedo-mage with W build and full on bruiser.Lava Wave is king. Smash is a good ult if you know how to use it but it just cannot outpace the absolute value you get from soaking 2+ waves and pushing the fuck out of the lane opposite of where everyone is fighting on objective.Don't listen to people who say lava wave isn't as good on a 2-lane map. Braxis is large enough that rotation speed is a little slow and the pressure you get from being able to form a 5-man to push one of their 2 forts is even heavier than what you'll feel on a 3 lane map.Losing one of thsoe keeps early on Braxis often spells the end for that team because they no longer have a saftey net for contesting beacons.
>>325469880Raynor and diablo jostled, peeled, and did great together. Our tychus never showed up to a single obj, ping camps then tilted at 8 minutes and never once helped the team. Varian and I got pulled apart each time we tried to engage.
>>325470065>braxis raggilmao retard, you can't even double soak
>>325470409Fuck, had a sneaky feeling about that Tychus, should have bet against him.
can i redeem myself with dehaka this time?
>uuuuh we're not like those OTHER mobas hots is hero brawler, it's fast paced and all about heroes fighting for different objectives on different maps!>but the best way to win is to splitpush, farm camps and ignore half of the objectives regardless of what map you play on, many heroes are specifically designed to encourage the afk farming playstyle Wow so different from league and dota...
>>325471043Your tongue is weak bro. Tychus is going to absolutely shred it this time.
>>325292161cassia is so beautiful
>>325467060Nice argument retard
>>325471339Either that leoric sucked, or dehaka is rather well situated to fighting leoric in the solo lanes. its bronze so probably sucked, but still.
>>325472675dehaka beats leoric
>>325472675How the hell did Lúcio and Orphea manage 6-7 deaths, just walk away. Tychus at least did something this time.
>>325473574i did ambush them each twice. But yeah, no idea how most of those deaths occured
On volskaya. might be ok. depends on kel.
Li Ming is balanced.
>>325475438Uther won't heal enough to save your assassins from their lack of dodging. Azmodan has free reign. Giving it to red.
>>325475902Autismodan lane push basically left his team out to dry the whole time.
I want to hold cassia's arms as we poop crouching across from each other
>>325477038That's it I'm broke. All he had to do was throw a few balls. Bronze has no logic. It is a realm of chaos.
>>325477447exactly. Bronze league is worse than flipping a coin.
>haven't played in years>randomly come back>my man Leoric feels like absolute dogshitAm I missing something? He feels absolutely cucked. Traded 5% of his drain for some auto attack wave clear bullshit? I feel like his only purpose is wall ult, so I may as well choose Naz. I never thought of him as a tank, but he feels squishy as fuck to me now.
like, wtf. I feel like this will be an enormous stomp. In either direction.
>>325477447When I was in bronze it went like this>tell team very basic instructions>we win if they listen>we lose if they don'tExample, enemy team drafted valeera, zeratul, and nova on Hanamura. I told my team to never leave our 5man and we will win. They listened and we won because they had no retards to pick off.Alternatively, I told my teammates to take the protector to core from an empty lane to win the game. They decided to go destroy a fort in another lane and we lost shortly after.

Will someone tell me wtf is supposed to be the counter to current dva? Seems to me she can basically roll in, spray auto attacks at whoever's she feels like, any cooldowns blown on her are a waste because at any point she can fuck off with "lel chen barrel ult lite" and immediately print off a new robot. All while having the option of "haha hard read, self destruct I KNEW there was a team fight in this area to size of Texas." Like yes she can't come annihilate you by herself. But she basically has 0 consequences for anything she does. "Haha robot tank printer go brrrr"
>>325479345The mech gives XP. If she's printing mechs, you're gaining levels
>>325478343he beats 90% of other heroes in lane and does good damage to frontlines in teamfights and autowins at 20
>>325479420>The mech gives XPLittle to no XP, and it's way harder to kill than Murky.
>>325478576When people actually follow up on Mei slows she works amazing. Good enough for now though. Might do a few more in a couple hours. With this win, I'm officially back up to Silver 5 though so maybe I'll start getting games that makes some semblance of sense.
>>325479345There is no counter. You just have to stop attacking her and hope that the assassins she's protecting are bad at the game.
>>325485292Look at them thighs, just look at themglorious
>>325480368>so maybe I'll start getting games that makes some semblance of sensethe only difference between bronze and low silver is the amount of unwarranted self importance

>>325480275half a kill's worth.
>>325477038I mean, he DID make it all the way to core. I'm surprised his team couldn't hold you off even a little, although it looks like they did fuck all in terms of soak.
Has anyone played with Brian808 dude has 8000 games in silver and guy runs it every time I get him in my lobby why do people like this not just quit the game
I worked on HGC, ask me questions.
>>325494740Do Yrel's lips taste like strawberries or no
>>325494740how many dicks did you have to suck while working for activision
how the fuck do you play the game when the enemy team does nothing but rotate through all of the camps spider tombwe were stuck in our base all fucking game, cant contest camps because then your base gets wrecked instantly, and they never took fights unless they had a camp or spidersjesus fuck
>>325496195That's why you pick heroes with waveclear on that map, people probably weren't soaking and not checking camps to force fights when they need to
Stage Dive ETC with Face Smelt at 13 is HELLA fun. I almost think it's stronger than Mosh Pit most of the time, enemy team picks Li-Ming and Junkrat to try countering you and you just sit on them.
>>325500743Face smelt is my go to honestly. The double one seems to save people more often than not and that fat slow just makes you better at pursuit
>>325488102yes, this has definitely shown up a lot more. Lots of PRO SHOT CALLERS LISTEN TO ME guys in silver. But holy fuck is it legitimately a better place to be than bronze. 8 wins in a row now, cause people seem to understand the basics of the game and don't fuck about. Well, except for this match. Full clown car match we won level 18 - 13. I first picked gaz, aba murky second 3rd picked, so the last two said fuck it, lets just have fun.

>>325510457For healer make them learn lucio. The healing is easy and if they're good enough they are the ones who engage, chase or peel.

It will save you some grief for sure

Garrosh is the only tank that I can stomach because at least I can throw my teammates into the enemy team when they are useless or throw enemy closer so they can kill us all faster
>>325527157So the only tank you can play is the one that makes you lose?

So, Stitches swallows Arthas, me. The tank. Supposedly. The absolutely worst one to swallow theoretically? And I fucking die.
>>325533420Arthas isn't a bulky tank and had no escape tools so hes not a bad target to gorge
>>325533420>W-what?! THeY sHOUlDn't USe CooLdOwNs on mE IM THE TANKArthas is probably one of the worst "tanks" in the game right now in that people actually will target you because your EHP is a lot lower than most tanks and securing your kill is generally a lot easier than getting rid of ETC, Jo, Garrosh, Mura, Mei, etc, etcMain tank Arthas only works in bronze or when you have a specialized team comp that doesn't necessarily want a damage sponge in front of them.
>>325533420>Arthas, me. The tankAnon I...
>>325538939>>325533752Yeah. I mean, I know, I know. Just a bit of a bummer. I just wish I had more reliable tools to make it so it didn't make sense to do that. You see Mei zipzooping all over the place and feel like an idiot.
Hope that muradin it was more interesting than turning fat

Is Arthas the only Tank with no stun?
came back after like a year hiatus any big changes to heroes kist i should know about?
>>325540961Depends on what you mean by stun and tankMal'ganis has sleeps only.Stitches can only hook and gorge.Tyrael only has it on ult
>>3255413673rd Mal'ganis Q is a microstun
>>325541367Mal'ganis has stun on the third hit of his claws and Stitches hook is a stun.

>>325542107>team doesn't think you do anything all game while they get into team fights constantly 40 seconds before obj goes live and die

>>325518567>default version is a cute blonde >demon version is a semendemon
>>325544563>default version is a cute semendemon>demon version is a literal semendemonI don't see the difference
>>325529371Yes, and it’s not even close to an exaggeration. Production crew for HGC was incredible though. Everyone loved the game.
>abathur doesn't pick clone
>>325545389Depends on map and compMonstrosity can get some masive pushin in during objective and sometimes you get a lot more value out of just keeping hat on someone instead of making a no talent clone of them.I'd prefer it if aba went monstrosity if they can't tell which heroes on the team have the best baseline abilities for the situation.Like when braxis objective is pushing in and you clone the SINGLE TARGET MELEE ASSASSIN instead of the BURST MAGE you should go fuck yourself.
I'm so much happier with this game since I don't mind being in perma leavers queue, the games quality is no so much more different from mid-silver to low-bronze; and if I spot a retard/troll/afk, I just dc and come back 15 minutes later. It is much better for my sanity that way.
>>325547056Or you could stop being a little bitch and throwing a fit each time you get a 12yo on your team.
>>325547056>being a salty bitch over QM gamestruely brain damaged

>>325547753>trying in QMdumbfuck
Just go SL guys
>>325547848So you can't tryhard and can't play for fun (which means leaving when the game isn't fun), so what do you do in QM then?
>>325547623>>325547675I'd try if I saw my teamates try too, sadly is not the case, I won't put effort in such a shitshow. I don't ask for beg winning streaks, I just want fun challenging games, but currently 19/20 games are stompfests for or against you.>>325548041When you play one of those rare challenging matches HOTS becomes a 95+/100 game for me.
>>325548212>but currently 19/20 games are stompfestsYes, I've had a few games that were over in literally 11 minutes or so. It's ridiculous.
Am I crazy or did Artanis used to have an animation for casting prism?I haven't noticed since I almost always cst it during blade dash now but he just stands perfectly still as it comes out, which looks awful given that he can't act when he's doing that.

I feel like auriel is the most misunderstood healer since her teammates need to do damage for her to have any energy
>>325562180You're not a tank, you don't need follow-up to smack a bitch up.He might not do Imperius levels of damage but he still hits plenty hard for how stupid tanky he can be.
>>325562376>since her teammates need to do damage for her to have any energySeems like you're misunderstanding her, too.Start actually hitting shit with her abilities and you'll see how fast that gauge fills up.
>>325562723Her sweep is very unsafe and basic attack range is pitifil
>>325548212stop playing QM ffs

>>325562474maybe before level 10, but after that everyone gets survivability, you don't have bruiser level damage at all

>>325564190Going to uninstall it again. Even if I get an answer (for which I will be thankfull), it probably ends up with "your laptop is too jank, you need an update". Not an option for me at the moment, sadly.Oh well. I guess that's a sign.

>>325566374>Game is optimized like shitI know. I really guess it just reached that point.

Of course, eventually I had to go down to Low-Medium territory, but it just shows how scuffed HotS is sometimes.>Best to look your specsThere's probably no particular point in looking up a 7-8 years old specs and expect to have a working solution.It is what it is. Thanks for your answer. Good night, anon.
>>325569867this cant be right. if this is the quality they aim for, then they should give the mounth to every character

The amount of post-game whispers from faggoty teenagers has really increased lately.I'm down for some shit talking but when they just type "lol" after each line of text when you verbally beat their ass it just doesn't give the satisfaction worth actually responding to them.
>>325576356I started playing again with my cousin and it's hilarious that he does rage responses and shittalking and all he gets is "lol" back.He already got his account banned, I wish the man could learn to hold his fucking tongue, good thing all the heroes are free.
>Last-second switches to Illidan>Says this>Immediately proceeds to end the match at 12 deaths and 26k damageIs there an image that better encapsulate's a heroes' profile?

explain to me why I shouldn't go locust build when the only symbiote talent worth a shit, the +25% IAS, isn't on a tier that competes with locust talents>become a lane terrorist, spawning 1-4 catapults in a lane at a time with global presence>or do like 34 more damage and 22 more healing per second at level 20Being a locust man has a higher skill ceiling and is more fun
because only bitches play abathur
>>325559254Fun things are fun.
>>325609347you are a idort. Stab + Spike Burst hurts, and the talents that buff them are just fine. Remember, locust talents only benefit lane pushing, while stab + spike burst talents benefit lane pushing AND damaging enemy heroes. I also suggest you check out the winrates of symbiote builds vs locust builds.hybrid builds are OKMy main issue with building around locusts is that you need to spend 99% of your game pushing lanes to make even a small impact. And if the enemy team gets ahead or they get good at reacting to your pushes, you are rendered useless. If you take mostly symbiote talents, you can help your team out alot during fights, and also push/soak lanes decently in between.
>>325611353You make good points, I just really like the stealth element with locus bombing on 16. But if you're taking the locust bomb on 16 then you should be taking all of the other locust talents too, or else it's uselessSo would you generally endorse pressurized glands & envenomed spikes or a carapace & adrenaline
>>325613016I do agree that full locust build is fun as fuck. And when it works, it works well. Uh...most of the time. I've had situations where I go full locust build, manage to eliminate most enemy forts + keeps through lane pressure, yet my team goes full retard and can't seem to push their core hard enough and we end up throwing the game.In answer to your second question:pressurized glands & envenomed spikesalsoNeedlespine and Spatial Efficiency are good talents too. Poking fuckers to death is fun. I take Needlespine in QM when I don't have a good target for Adrenal Overload or I just don't trust that they will make good use of the Attack Speed boost.
>>325613016Oh, and I forgot to mention this. If you want to tryhard and make it harder for the other team to spot your locusts in lanes, only use the Base abathur skin colors or his Swarm (Master) skins. His locusts in these skins are plain and stand out way less compared to the others.
>>325586648Can you even get dubs on /vg/?
>>325614806I will reflect on thisMany times has the situation you described happened to me, that should be argument enough to not do it, but I still must to sate my autismThank you

>>325662125All of them are fine depending on how you use them.Mobile is good if you have the mind to stutter step him all of the time but it can lose a lot of value during fights.Arsenal is fun when you take the 20 talent but that means you have to skip the get out of jail free cardlaser build is fun if you get retards that let you stack it for free
Why can't you surrender 4v5 games?
What cup size is alexstrazahow is she allowed to just have these huge ass jugsHonestly I hate coomers but she makes it so hard
>>325665490how about you show some respect.
>>325664917Yeah, Yrel isn't good.She's amazing.
>>325665292It's just how it is. Happens in all competitive sports. Football game 8vs11, basketball 4vs5, has never bothered anyone, all legit matches. It might even happen to your opponents next time so it's balanced. Have you tried getting gud?
>>325665712respect for whata fictional character? lol
>>325665106I don't like nu-Xul. He isn't bad but I wish the skeletons were viable.
I'm on another lossstreak. Nowadays it usually goes like this>5 losses>4 wins>6 losses>3 wins
better or worse, /hotsg/?
>>325669536Disgusting. Casual uncultured coomerbait.
>>325669536A lot better.
>>325669536Way worse. Actually soulless.
>>325669694>>325669854>>325669960>>325670165>>325670440For the next question, why do you feel this way about your opinion?
>>325670786HOTS alexstrasze her face looks weird. like a chipmunk that hit nuts in her cheeks. also yogapants are stupid and a meme for tictocthots
>>325670786Because fuck you, that's why.
>>325670786Instead of thicc mature mommy we have a hot girl from the mind of a horny 10 year old who has just discovered there is porn on the internet. UNCULTURED.
>>325669536The tummy chub on mommy Alex does war crimes to my penis
>>325670165Do NOT post Li Ming.
>>325669536WorseHots Alex>>>WoW Alex
>>325670786>Why do you feel this way about your opinion?WoW Alex is just a belf cosplaying as someone who calls themselves "a mother of all life". Hots Alex IS the mother of all life.
I haven't played hots since 2017 and I'm surprised /hotsg/ is still alive and kicking. What did I miss in the meantime?
>>325680378Tower and xp changesbuff and nerfsNo more team league

>>325680378Only the waifufags remain, what you knew as platinum is now silver.
God I fucking hate playing against AurielCucking me out of kills all day long with how often she can shit out AoE heals and protect near death enemies with her ult.
>>325687416Imagine being black.
>>325688194>only blacks like wide hips and thick thighsFuck off retard.
>>325688448One drop, yes.You will never be white.

>>325688848>getting mad and chimping out after being called blackThanks for proving my point.
>>325688194>i'm black for not liking a malnourished belf cosplayer
>>325689464I guess it's a new le racist 4chin meme that enjoying women with ass is a black thing.

>>325691837not him but I've had girlfriends and sex with women of a bunch of races while being "racist".
is cho'gall chad or cuck?
>>325700976>very few heroes can solo cho'gall without dying>meanwhile cho'gall can manage most 2v2, fight 2v3, and sometimes win 2v4I'm thinking "chad".
>>325701629how does he do it?
>>325700976>always share his gfTurbo-cuck.
>>325701718by being a fucking cuck
>>325700976Wrong question. Cho is a chad, Gall is a virginall the ogre poontang is obtained due to cho, and gall only gets it despite, not because of his actions
>>325703314>imblying Cho has time for pussy with all the Old God dick Gall makes him suck
want to play some hots but>remember the matchmaker is shit>remember there is no solo queue>remember heroes like chogall and medivh exist>remember maps like braxis and hanamura exist>remember the playerbase is retarded and likes everything bad about the gamehaha, fuck you faggots and fuck blizzard
>>325708396>remember the matchmaker is shitEveryone I see complain about "losing in mm" are the ones dragging the team down.>remember there is no solo queueStacks aren't that much of a problem on the enemy team given their frequency. Also anything under a 5-stack tends to make their team worse because usually they're just some random dudes playing and they like to point fingers at the pubs when shit goes wrong.As someone who never played team league I honestly haven't noticed a difference between HL and SL games because the rate at which we get stomped or teammates throw hasn't changed>remember heroes like chogall and medivh existCho stacks are far from a problem and he's very easy to counter in both fights and just by outmacroing him. Random Cho'galls in QM often just throw the game for their team because their comp just can't hold their own in lanes or do much to support him in fights.Medivh can feel like ass to play against but usually that's a stack issue, because even if the Medivh is good they'd be much better off with almost any hero if the people they're protecting and portaling aren't pulling their own weight.>remember maps like braxis and hanamura existIt feels really bad when your team doesn't get waveclear but that applies to all maps. With some map awareness Braxis doesn't feel like much of a problem. I've had much worse games on Dragon Shire than either of those ones.>remember the playerbase is retarded and likes everything bad about the gameNo, the playerbase is retarded and wants it be another Dota/LoL clone instead of enjoying the few things that set this game apart from those spergfests.Remove Deathwing, return to Mines.
Tips for playing Artanis:>Amateur Opponent every time. Protector of Auir only on maps where you'll be fighting all fucking day like ToD or maybe MAYBE vehicle objective maps like DS or Foundry. Block if never ever.>Only pick Shield Surge against burst damage comps. It's a wasted tier if you only get to proc it once in a while.>Follow Through is pretty pathetic unless you're stacking it with AO damage for meme camp stealing. Q talent isn't so bad for poke/kill secure and E talent is much better at keeping you in a fight.>Suppression Pulse is a great ability but unless there's enemies you specifically need to shut down then Beam can put in a lot more work if you use it well.>DO NOT TAKE TRIPLE STRIKE. It's a whole tier for a simple 25% increased cooldown and 50% more damage, really not that impressive in the long run and especially less so if you're having trouble staying alive.>Titan Killer + Triple Strike is a bad meme. Does fuck all when you need it to. Blades of a Templar gives you a little bit of everything- DPS, trait reset, cc. Solid talent. Force of Will is great when comboed with a shield talent at 4 and Phase Bulwark at 13, 50 spell armor isn't a fucking joke when it has that much uptime and you will live through just about anything if you're not getting stunlocked.>Plasma Burn is a good 20 if you put a lot into "tank artanis" because it rewards you for simply being alive. Also gives you a lot of lategame waveclear for objective pushes and things like Braxis.>If you can't make good swap plays then don't bother. You can easily peel for teammates with E and learning how to back/side swap for optimal repositioning will drastically improve your fight utility.>If you want to do damage, play Sonya. If you want to double soak, play Leo.
>playing artanisStopped reading there
>>325717726Understandable.He's certainly not the strongest hero in the roster but I get a lot of enjoyment over the raw amount of damage you can facetank sometimes.
Tip for playing Alexstrasza:>Hit your Flame Buffets
>>325718882I actually like Artanis but the people who play him usually tend to think they're 1v5 gods and only want to brawl instead of playing to his strengths and abusing Amateur Opponent
artanis actually wins every lane matchup with block
>>325723096He's my most played but it's pretty sad how he's just [Different Bruiser] but worse in nearly every area, and pubbies trying to play to those areas is what gives him a sub 50% winrate.The PvE damage is pretty great with AO, but even that can lose an immortal race to Wrath Sonya.The upside I guess is that you get it t1 and can start bruiser camps immediately and spend the rest of your talents on other areas.>>325724880What's the point in winning lane when you can't burn down towers without AO?Artanis doesn't struggle in lane unless you eat poke for no reason, he struggles literally everywhere else.
>>325725501wouldnt he just lose to q valla
>>325725957Oh no there's a squishy ranged hero with no sustain in my lane, if only I can rotate to do camps while someone else covers my lane.Alternatively you do the smart thing and just sit back and soak. Clever use of shield uptime minimized the poke you take and you can take a good few hits if they get greedy and try to roll up on you.
>>325726224im talking about immortal race
>>325724880Theoretically you're correct for everyone except D.va, Xul and against Gazlowe you want AE because it can nuke his turrets
>>325726330*AO not AE
>>325726298>>325726374>talk about how it has it's weaknesses>"But it has weaknesses."Alright you kind of threw me off there.
Are there any stuns/silences that can break a buffed Holy Word: Salvation at level 20 on Anduin?
>>325730323you mean all of them
>>325730323>>325730512even tychus grenade does doesn't it?
>>325731260>>325730512even though it's invulnerable status at 20?
>>325731672read it again, nigger
>>325731728oop now i see
oh fuck, silver league is a HUGE improvement over bronze. When i say i'll solo or dual lane, people understand what i mean. When I ping that i'm incoming, they understand its a gank. Basic competency/vocabulary with the game is present. Mostly what i see now is bad or poor players. Like people who make bad positioning, or wrong or unsafe rotations (jesus this is the most common thing). And you can see people trying but failing to follow up abilities. Bronze is literally way way harder to play in than silver. Also, I get to play gazlowe sometimes.
started playing this game for the free monththis game is balanced with the finesse of a gorilla with a sledgehammer much like every other blizzard game. How can probius and orphea exist in the same game
>>325735947probe is hard to play, and orphea is fine and much more fair than tracer or genji
>>325736357>Traceryeah she seems really good so far>Genjiliterally just stun him and he dies instantly lmao
>>325048172Since when was Anduin so fun? He feels so balanced and just fun to play with. Was he always like this? Makes me wanna buy him.
>>325735947>How can probius and orphea exist in the same game"Blizzard balance" aside, the game used to have another role, the "specialist", for niche heroes that had different playstiles (most of them oriented around pushing tho). Then they decided that wasn't good for the esports scene and moved the specialists to other roles (usually assassins) and turning them to shit in the process.
hmmm today I will play orb build ming
>>325735947Still has better balance than the other assfagots
UHHHHHH ORB BUILD OR ORBNIGGERS AS I LIKE TO CALL THEM IS NOT HOTSG APPROVED AAAAAAAANND YOU BETTER GO CALAMITY AND FEED HARD OR ELSE
What if they steal this Chinese phone hero to make Magatha.Pretty much cycles between "the elements" and depending on which one you have equipped, it gives your aa and abilities different properties.https://youtu.be/-pX6sY-oTfs
>Expanding Quick Match Search
I have to be honest, I constantly critique heroes and give build advice but I only play vs AI
>>325767512Basically every QM game I've had. Every single one.
>>325767512I had a 90 second queue yesterday, and since I'm in EU this usually means I'm being matched against a master 5man stack so I cancelled my search just to be sure
>>325769831Blue unless ana is a bad shot
>>325769831Red, if:-their masters are stacked-your kerrigan is shit
>>325769946>>325769998Really rocky start but it all came together after the first shrine. Ana was good but kind of a faggot since they mass pinged me when they got caught out and all my shit was on cooldown.Kerrigan got their quest done 8 minutes in so that was nice.
>>325771707Thought so. Your comp dominates the shrine. They would have to get a pick or 2 if they want to contest
>>325771707>80k gold>5k doritos>can't spend them because current event only unlocks all of the winter stuff without anything new>have to wait until season end to spend these
>>325772271The fuck would I spend gold on?I usually blow it on those mounts that would show up but I haven't seen one of those in a while. It'd be nice if they had some exclusive gold skins like how Mastery skins used to be, instead we get the gay yellow circlets to show dedicated autism.Been thinking about blowing the doritos on some of the toy skins but I don't play enough Dehaka or Qhira to justify it.
>>325772546>The fuck would I spend gold on?Shekels into doritos conversion to get more skins. But yeah, there isn't much stuff to get this season
>pick anduin early>teammates swap to Thrall and TychusGonna regret not playing Rehgar
>>325774150Tychus was not having a good day.So pissed off he doesn't even know who he's DMing or what was happening during the match, even said during the match "Anduin is the only one who is good".Also at one point he was actively running through the other side's jungle and away from me when I was pinging leap off cooldown.Must've said "diamond" 8 times that match.
>finally get whitemane in aram>get varian on my team>goes afk level 2>dcs level 3>never comes backwow I had so much fun, thanks for not adding a surrender button blizzard
>>325776594what was the match timer mister crypants?
>>325777171Why haven't you killed yourself, mister retard hotsbabs?
>>325772271I still can't believe they didn't at least bring back previous year's Lunar stuff.
>>325778381Because I don't bitch about everything
>>325778472they have at the very least mixt chinese event with summer event
Fix a hero, not in a balance was, but is a way that makes them more fun.Gul'dan: Simple, make rain of destruction not the dumbest ult in the game. Now that MalGanis is in, just have it be summon infernal. Infernals were iconic to WC3. Doesn;t have to be complex. Comes in with mini stun or slow, controllable like Naz's summon. lvl 20 you can swap places with it or have it's damage heal you or something. Anub: Let me direct beetles so they feel less dumb and nearly pointless.
>>325762643Asian creativity in character design has really gone down the pooper. Feels like the same 5-7 stock anime characters over and over with remixed outfits.
>>325780525Because the game is literally made for 15 yo boys who don't know better.
>>325780123>give one of the highest sustained damage mage in the game two CC ults except one is a big fat meat wall to tank skillshots for him too>ArtanisRemove Psionic Synergy, replace it with Q talent that lets you cancel Blade Dash, change shield battery so that 50% of Shield Overload persists when the duration ends.
>>325780525Because most games today are made for the coomer and pedo audience, you don't need creativity, just draw a cute 15 year old girl for the coomers and a 12 year old girl for the pedos and you are good to go, game suddenly makes billions of bucks.
>>325779109>>325778472*Spring, all lunar stuff is contained in the spring events.
kill all yrelniggersfucking degenerates
>>325780123Give Uther some smiting power. Slow his melee down and raise the volume of his hits by 50%.We need a proper paladin in the game who can deal some damage, one who isn't a priest or an alien with a horsecock.
Sylvanas looks like this?
>>325788527Just make a new hero lolA lot of Uther's talents revolve around constant AAs and while it would be a simple tweak to make the numbers proportional it would also make him slightly easier to play since you no longer need to weave your AAs as aggressively.I do agree we need more white men in plate mail with big weapons though.
Valeera was a mistake. She's not OP or anything, she's just unfun to play against.
>>325788527We need you to kill yourself asap.
>>325781926Gotta make their peepee tingle to distract from shit gameplay
>>325790310A Blood Knight Paladin would make a great retribution pala. Liadrin perhaps.
are all moba players shortsighted and clueless or is it just us hotsbabs?
>>325793439>4 years agoGet some better bait next time
>>325794912Literally who?Anyways, I fixed your pic.
>>325794912That face. Dear lord.
>>325792728Give us Tirion Fordring as pure ret paladin that melts faces.
>>325795139>>325796972>I need all the women I see to be cute and funnyPeople like you are the reason why WoW is in it's current state.
>>325797170>Literallywholin LiterallywhodringNo thanks.
>>325797281Jokes on you, retarded homosexual, if I were the reason WoW would be like TERA right now.
>>325798018>the man that shattered Frostmourne and killed the Lich King is a nobody4/10 bait got me to respond
>>325799272>the WoW original content is a nobodyCorrect. Might as well add another OverNigger hero instead.
>>325780525I guess that is what you get when you pump up more heroes than heroes of the storm a year
>>325780525I've been thinking about that a lot recently. I think the best way to describe it is its the equivalent of brown cover shooters in the west. It's not so much that its a trope but that the companies producing it are just completely beholden to their shareholders who demand they only put in known money maker stuff. It just happens that over there its character archetypes instead of gameplay mechanics.
>>325812918Is this the moba highstandar of character design?
>>325814642its what the investors think it is. So regardless what i think, thats what we gonna get.
R8 my li-ming build [2,1,3,2,2,1,2]I call it the penta build because it wipes teams if you dont slack off and play just aggressive enough
>>325826476I like straight Q build because she has some decent structure/boss damage with seeker and fireflies, cannoneer and charged blast help out a decent bit too.
I call dva outside the mech "fetus dva" instead of "baby dva"
>QM>Uther: WTF why can't you hit a single skillshot Leoric? >Win with highest damage, 100k self heal>Uther: Pfft, Leoric is easy to get high numbers with, play a real hero next time.Sure this is tame for QM idiocy, but I don't get why people like this even play the game. I'm glad i mute everyone most of the time, serves me wrong for forgetting this time.
>>325832319The people who love talking shit are usually ones that need to reflect on themselves.>>325832354That's kinda hot.
Where's that new thread at?
OP is sleeping
time do diedietime to diedietime to diediethis is for you
>>325832354Yes? Is there any problem officer?
>that Tyrande player who only heals himselfWhy are they so retarded?
>>325790384This. Yep, gee she has to be reeeeeal careful after fuckhuge CC and walking away unrevealble with 70 magic armor. She requires a shitload of instant peel or to be constantly revealed before lol teleport blind stun, slow, nuke. As tank I basically have to baby sit my back line because she doesn't give 2 shits about any assassins ability to peel her.New heroes kind of piss me off in general. Mei has free ice block super heal out of the gate. Her slide is ETC slide plus knock back minus the stun. And her slow aoe stun is borderline an ult. Qhiras E is literally storm bolt divided into 2 stuns, relocation, invulnerability in one move. Her trait is Sonya's spear, then she just has life steal as a passive... because. Everything has to be "le super mobile nuke monster with protection" to the point where Diablo is one of the most reliable tanks, because good luck hitting zoopy dupe zoop zoops with something like Stitches hook on a heros that barely give a shit if it lands.Oh and DVa is basically Murky with a Chen printer at this point. I wish they'd pull the plug and free me from this curse.
>>325847328>>325847328>>325847328>>325847328sorry for being late I was coinflipping in NA silver lmao
