I doubt it, Microsoft will likely want to see the more successful established titles being developed (WOW, Overwatch, Diablo). Depending on how and if actiblizz titles get integrated into game pass I could see something like all heroes being accessible through it.
I am hoping we get a new hero sometime, but it would probably have to be a pet project for devs.

Probius is my favorite and I feel like he got some healthy changes during the last few years. Coming back and picking him up again was fun. Always liked him though. But yeah, it feels bad to play him with deep dive comps/during long chases, especially if you're the one holding the team together and they effectively stop your damage by going for unreasonable chases.

countless times I've had our team lose like 3 guys at the start and then the enemy team just sits in mid chipping away about half of the tower while the guys who died just go to their lanes and soak back all that exp and maybe even more
although rarely I've had the enemy team get teamwiped mid at start and then we just proceed to wipe the floor with them

Pretty much the earliest time you can tell "Okay, now we're in some serious shit" is if you lose a keep (not a fort, a keep, know the difference) and are nowhere near taking one of theirs
Nothing that happens before hardly matters, except in the sense of gaining a lead that allows that moment
>>

>sense of gaining a lead that allows that moment
Yeah, I think early game confidence can be quite important. Believing in your comp, your tank, your healer to do their jobs enables you to make more aggressive plays.

if there would be any cross promotion between actiblizz titles and game pass it would be pretty nice to have all heroes free on there, the infrastructure is already somewhat there since there's an 'internet-cafe' flag that makes all heroes free.
but even that seems far fetched.
>>
>>588231
Kind of difficult to use maybe? Her best skillshot is quite narrow, and she relies on that to position herself
>>
>>589235
IDK if you're trolling or have a strange definition of best. Q is great for repositioning and puts out decent damage if you can keep it up but E is the big daddy damage spell.
IMO she's the best because she combines three things no other mage does except Li-Ming (who I'll talk about momentarily).
First off, she has mobility, which is absolutely critical to be blind picked or picked into certain enemy heroes. Jaina is a great example of what happens when you lack this; a melee ass can jump you and ruin you (even with ice block Jaina is pretty fucked). Notably, W and Q are both mobility skills and Q is extremely versatile allowing chasing or kiting.
Second, she has big dick damage on her E. Doing poke damage generally isn't sufficient in HotS given the high level of healing, so you need to be able to either one-shot or get someone low enough to jump on and kill prior to their being healed, which her E can do easily, particularly when comboed with W.
Finally, she has the capability to constantly fight via her passive healing and overall low mana usage. Notably, she doesn't have to take a talent or two just to keep casting spells.
Some mages like Kael and KT are good in particular comps but can get shredded by their lack of mobility as aforementioned. Some like Gul'dan can constantly fight but will just never chunk/kill someone during skirmishes. The only thing Orphea is really lacking is CC, which is fine if it's elsewhere on the team.
Li-Ming is in a similar boat but I feel her mobility is significantly worse, she has more issues with sustain, but notably lacks a reliable nuke. Her W is simply too easy to cock-block, whereas Orphea E can't be tanked.
Also if you don't go 223XX33 you're trolling. I prefer Eternal Feast and Abyssal Symbiosis but Crushing Jaws and Determination are viable depending on comps. In particular the first talent is so ridiculous IMO; E is just so strong with it and if you finish the quest it's so fucking hard to lose.

>>
>>589322
it's extremely hard to just chomp down on remotely competent players, i'm sure you can qm stomp with that build but that's it
as for ults; same kind of idea; crushing jaws is just never going to land unless they're already cc'd in which case you do more damage with eternal feast
also eternal feast can get ridiculous during some sieges, combos, and has a shorter cool down to boot
there's a reason it has a higher winrate; plat+ it is a 12% increase over crushing jaws

>>589286
>IDK if you're trolling or have a strange definition of best. Q is great for repositioning
And that's why it's Orphea's best skill: no matter how good Chomp is, or how useful the slow on Dread is, so much of Orphea's playstyle and ability to survive is tied to Waltz (both mobility and constant orb generation) that it makes it her "best" skill... Or if you don't agree with that definition of "best", then her most fundamental; miss Waltz when you're trying to duel, or otherwise need to reposition, you're probably dead in seconds
>>
>>589903
Pick tank
Pick a healer with CC and defend yourself
>>
>>590010
>miss Waltz when you're trying to duel,
as a mage you're retarded if you're dueling
>otherwise need to reposition, you're probably dead in seconds
only if W is on CD as well
Q is good for just putting damage on anyone diving as you kite but the overwhelming majority of your important damage is going to come from massive E hits
it's like calling Jaina's Q her best spell
like yeah it's good because it does damage and applies chill, but cone of cold is what kills people and just about any spell that did damage and applied chill would be jsut as good
Orphea's Q is good because it does damage and gives her mobility, but even if it only did damage Orphea would still be great, perhaps just not by such a wide margin but I suspect still the best

Today in ARAM:
Man switches off of healer despite being only one with access to heals because nobody picked tank. No tank options were given to either team.
>>
>>590041
>Today in ARAM:
No one cares about ARAM and no one should expect any balance or effort from anyone while playing it
>>
>>590013
What is the point of QM if you absolutely have to pick tank or few of the healers with CC to have a good time?
>>
>>590117
why are you ocmplaining then?
If your definition of "good time" is "having a comp that works without the squishies being insta-killed", then either pick whatever you feel is needed to make QM work like you want it to, or accept that if you still pick whatever you want, you might be matched into a QM clownfiesta, and if you're picking a squishy then it's gonne be you who gets murdered; after all, healer and tank are on perma-boost precisely because no one picks them in QM, so you should be prepared for that
Or pick Li Ming with max range orb build and glass cannon and try to shot people from behind terrain
>>
>>590117
>>590169
another solution: Play ranked without caring about rank
Just hammer the pick button and first pick your favorite character, the rest of the party will bitch at you but in most cases they will try to fill
I'd tell you to go unranked with that shit, but that mode is dead
>>
>>590169
>QM clownfiesta
I accepted that long ago. I just pick whichever hero I want to play or practice and click play. Don't care about the matchups and try to make the most of it by adapting to the situation. It's also a fast mode which is great. By the time you ban and pick heroes in ranked I'm already 5 min into the QM.

How do I deal with Artanis. I'm seeing him everywhere. I know that his lane clearing isn't the best but it doesn't matter when it comes to teamfights. He baits people and he is one of the best duelists and can be quite annoying to take down when randoms can't coordinate hard cc against him.
>>
>>594021
Right click him.
His bark is meaner than his bite, and any solid attack-based ranged assassins can actually bust him down pretty quickly, unlike proper tanks who self-heal like madmen. Obviously if he's getting disgusting swaps constantly it's pretty rough but in teamfights he tends to have a tough time surviving.

How come this game isn't more popular when it focuses on the fun parts of moba matches (fighting)?
>>
>>599180
no "le epic 90,000 damage carry!" because exp is split, the team aspect of it makes you truly a team and you either succeed as a team or fail as a team
so shitters will will make the game unfun, retards that don't know teamwork will will make the game unfun, idiots that only care about their individual performance will will make the game unfun, micromanaging players who actually should play a solo rts will make the game unfun, afk players will will make the game unfun
>>
>>593843
Racist.
>>
>>599347
That's true but this applies to any moba really except that it's much harder to solo carry if your team is behind or your teammates offer no help whatsoever.
However what this game has over other moba games is the fact that it cuts to the chase much faster than others by eliminating the need for farming gold for items and moves the adaptability of items over to the heroes themselves so you very rarely get those incredibly long and drawn out matches where the losing team turtles to 50-60 mins.
This game does the best job at is not wasting the players' time by making creeps/mercs capable of dealing worthwhile siege damage, forcing the teams to fight over objectives and overall designing the game such that matches don't last for longer than they have to.

Also the heroes in this game are the most fun of all the mobas I've played, by far.
>>
For me it's the most fun because you don't have the retarded 8 seconds of CC from one ability and get off-screen one shot in DotA, you don't have the autistic last-hit/farming phase you have in either DotA or LoL, and you don't have the literal slave-tier heroes that exist in LoL.
You get a lot of interesting fights with all your abilities (or near it) right from the start of the game, the games end before they get boring, and almost all of the autism is removed from the genre.
My biggest complaint is that a few of the maps play DRAMATICALLY different from the others, and I think it should be a bit more consistent (although some variance is good). Obviously the Blackheart Bay and Skeleton Mines being removed helps but I think Cursed Towers is also pretty painful at times with the stack bottom and shove strat, and the way the reworked Gardens of Terror works isn't my cup of tea either.
Hanamura I quite like but I think there's a solid argument that it's too far from the others as well.

playing Mephisto is more about the 'when' than the 'how', you want to shade in when your team is either covering your original location engaging into fleeing enemies and not into the whole enemy team out of the blue since you can get bursted down.

Different anon.
Righteous hammer is for some reasson on W when similar abilities are played on Q.
All of her abilities have wind up time some you spend lot of time maneuvering around mid combat before it goes off. Combined with D and number keys it's lot of time like playing piano with really stiff keys. I played other piano characters but goat is for some reasson, be it delay, animation or timing, handling her feels really off.

There are 2 type of healer players and both are basically NTR from theme to game mechanics.
No wonder there are so many healer deviants & coomers. You are either bullied without mercy and fed ugly bastard cocks or you are spending your matches cucking your enemies out of their kills.
Not sure if it's based or cringe.

A friend and I just went back into the game after a 2y break. He's around lv 1200 and was consistently ranked mid plat and I'm around 800 and was consistently high diamond but we keep getting matched with extremely low level players (200 at most but usually below 50). Now, we initially didn't mind because we just got back and all, but it's been a few dozen games and it's not really changing.
Are we gonna be stuck in lowbie queues for a while still or are there just not enough mid level players left or do we just have to play more?
>>
>>627041
Your QM MMR has been wiped back to the baseline so you'll probably be playing with the idiots for a little while until your MMR goes back -- how soon really depends on how many games you win.

If you and your friend pick the right heroes a two stack is pretty OP.

Not really, with Lili and Lucio you are the circle and your kit encourages you foe more aggressive plays.

>>635004
another explanation might be that you yourself are bad at playing anything else but dps. So if you try to play tank or heal you mess up and your team loses. But I guess it is unthinkable that part of the blame falls on you..? Because, strangely enough, from what people tell me, "the others" are allways to blame. I guess the same goes for you. I allways wonder how it came to be that I never speak to one of "the others" but allways with the perfect players. Not even once have I spoken to a player who wasn't perfect.

Which btw explains this: >>635142 If everyone is perfect, we all should have (close to) 50%

The pain will be worst at the start of your journey. While everyone cries about "the idiots I have to play with", it gets slightly better the higher you go. But you should be ready to fill any role and you need to be able to stay calm if things get ugly. You will often enough encounter people who are very stubborn and you need to be ready deal with that in a productive way. I was part of a group that grinded someone to EU Grandmaster#1 a few years back when you could still boost with low level accounts. I encountered people of all levels during that time and those that could realy get any account out of bronce to master+ were those that could adept and that never tilted. And while the game changed, this fact never did.

The confused design of this game will never not be funny to me.

Like they design things to make teamwork and individual performance less important, but only make it more important.
Like how you getting money from killing creeps and shit also gives it to your allies (and you). Meaning both you and your allies rely on each-other actually collecting this.

>Like they design things to make teamwork and individual performance less important, but only make it more important.
maybe I'm not reading you right but in what way is hots designed to make teamwork less important?
individual performance is important but in the context of a team, you can't get fed on a carry and 1v9 even if your team is afk.
second point is also unclear, in what way is a resource being collective confusing?
>>
>>640646
The devs design goal was to make it not suffer from the problems games like LoL or DotA 2 does.

For example, not being good at farming and last hitting
>it's ok, since you get money from your allies!
Except now your poor farming affects your allies diectly.

The designer at Blizzard have been terrible for a long time.
>>
>>640654
I don't think that's confused, those are the two ends of the spectrum - mechanics that cater to individual performance and mechanics that cater to teamplay.
I'm not saying everyone gathers XP properly in hots ('pls soak!!1' is often written in games) but at least here someone else can cover for a teammate that refuses to clear lanes / soak, you can't really farm for a carry in league (not familiar with dota enough to comment). In hots as long as they're contributing elsewhere (ganking, jungling) and not straight up AFK you'll come out less behind than you would if a carry in league wouldn't farm well or worse - feed.

The whole farming/team xp thing is mechanically sound design in my mind, at the same time I acknowledge those design decisions are contributing factors to why hots didn't get popular.
>>
>>640660
farming in dota is incredibly complex and is something every player on the map has to work together to do
>>
>>640660
>I don't think that's confused
Modern Blizzard design is always confused.
They do X because they want Y result, but end up getting the opposite of what they want.
Be it Diablo, Overwatch HotS or whatever.

I don't know why either. If it's the same incomptent leads that never go away or they just hire clueless designers.

blizzard being bad at game design is a core reason why their games have been so popular for the last 20 years

Why was removing tower ammo good?
>>
>>644127
If towers stay as a persistent threat they have more value throughout the game, than becoming useless stumps. Having limited ammo never made sense to me.
>>
>>644141
but they still regained ammo over time it's not like they used it all and then had none for the rest of the game.
>>
>>644127
it warped the gameplay around draining ammo, you didn't really care about laning or trading damage you just tried to sneak into a lane and drain ammo.
It also impacted who people played, summoners and other heroes that could drain ammo would be high priority.
>>
>>644144
I wouldn't really say it warped your play style around it since it was just part of laning back then. Going out of your way to waste tower ammo without capitalizing on it was usually not worth it since it regenerated fast enough. "Summoners" back then were just laners and part of every laner's kit was some way to reduce tower ammo faster. You didn't need a laner to win since hots has always centered around teamfight and objectives but a good laner could certainly do alot for your team if played correctly, but again, not necessary. With the removal of tower ammo those former laners have mostly just become weak dps characters that are almost never worth picking. Without the option to properly push a lane or split push as effectively as you used to be able to the objective and teamfights have become even more important that they already were. It seems like removing tower ammo needlessly took away a dimension of playing the game and fucked up alot of characters just to make teamfights more important when they were already really important.
>>
>>644150
From watching the competitive matches I don't agree with your analysis. I've seen games won based on macro and I've seen games won on the fights.

And on the solo laners, if they were 'never worth picking'. We wouldn't see them as a guarantee pick position. Go through the CCL archive, and you'll seriously struggle to find matches where Blaze, Dehaka or Yrel are not being picked. Hell, you could argue the splitpush meta has returned hard after the Hammer buffs.
>>
>>644153
hammer is so fucking gay
when they're on my team they're literal potato gorilla nigger single-digit iq retards
and when they're on the enemy team they have top in every fucking stat
>>
>>644153
When I talk about characters who are no longer worth picking after tower ammo removal I'm talking about characters like zagara, asmodan, gazlowe, and other characters whose primary function was laning. There are plenty of characters who are good at laning like blaze, dehaka, gul'dan, but they generally aren't specifically laners, they're just characters who happen to also be good at laning ontop of their primary function in teamfights. Being able to lane is still important but the purpose of laning has largely shifted towards just farming xp while using it as a method of actually pushing the core is no longer viable without significant support from the team/the objective/camps.

Is this game worth getting into? I have 4200 hours in Dota but I quit because I got sick and tired of more than half the games I play being stomps. I could tolerate that if the games were at least over quickly but waiting 30+ minutes to lose a game I know I'm going to lose was destroying my soul. Does hots have the same problem?
>>
>>646929
In my short experience 20+ minutes is when there are tide shifts during match. This game is designed to keep you in action. Somehow blizzard made good moba and it's their least popular game for some reason.
Mind you I have never played ranked due to inconsistent internet so can't really tell you how pro scene is
>>
>>646939
i agree with most of what you said, somehow the game is my favorite moba
>>
>>646929
I think this is inherent of "MOBA" games. I quit them all at 29 and never looked back. Worst waste of time of my life
>>
>>646929
Yes, I think HOTS is worth getting into. With the number of hours you have in Dota, understanding HOTS will be stupidly easy.

In the most extreme examples of stomps, a match can last from 7 to 16 minutes. However, in HOTS you could be losing for the entire game, but in a single team fight you could turn the game around and run for core -- Blizzard has placed some very strong catchup mechanics.
>>
>>646929
Most of the time, you can tell you're going to lose around 18 minutes, but even then a solid 25-35% of the time you can turn it around with 1 good gank. That late in the game, being up 1 character for 45+ seconds, and communicating decently can give you enough gusto to even things up or complete an objective on the map that will give you severe advantage for at least another minute. Theres also plenty of times when the enemy is already attacking your core, and instead of finish the job, or retreat smartly, they'll fuck around a bit too much, get wiped by your team respawning, and give you enough time to rush all the way into them and down their shit before they respawn. Happens frequently enough for it to always be an option in games that aren't 100% one-sided snowballs.
>>
>>583339
Blizzard could snatch up this game to do whatever the fuck they wanted with. It could be the fortnite of mobas.
It's easy, fast, and simple.

But I don't think they will do anything and it's just gonna die on permanent maintenance mode.
