Will there be renewed life because of the Microsoft acquisition?
>>583339They will be adding Minecraft's Steve, some guy from Gears of War, and Halo himself
>>583374>HaloWe discused master chief in previous thread>GoWcover mechanics when hugging map geometry similar to Lucio?>MinecraftI have no clue what his mechanic could/should be.
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.
>>583474I'd like to point out their AoE2 treatment but gotta admit that one was carried by fan scene hard.
This lil' nigga is fun to play, very easy to be a nuisance and top hero damage tooIf only my teammates would understand that they have to give me time to build two pylons before going balls deep
>>583899Probius 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.
I'm starting to have too much fun as Deathwing. When does my reality check come?
>>584292The first time you play him in ranked and get countered by a Greymane and/or Kharazim who know what they are doing
>>583339Have they fixed snowballing yet?Whoever wins the first clash is pretty much going to win the match.
>>584355>Whoever wins the first clash is pretty much going to win the match.Never been the case. You can spend the entire match losing, but still win with a single end-game fight and push to core.
>>584355Have you fixed talking about shit you don't know anything about yet?
>>584355It's almost like you don't play the game that is known for rubberbanding.
>It's a "Nazeebo picks Vile Infection at 130 stacks" episode>It's a "Ragnaros writes Nazeebo stacks then hammers a whole wave before he can poison them" episode
>>585322Rag attracts BR players because that's their WoW server; it's only natural
>>584355>Whoever wins the first clash is pretty much going to win the match.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 morealthough rarely I've had the enemy team get teamwiped mid at start and then we just proceed to wipe the floor with them
>>585770>>584355Pretty 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 theirsNothing that happens before hardly matters, except in the sense of gaining a lead that allows that moment
>>585937>sense of gaining a lead that allows that momentYeah, 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.
This has been most fun i had in month at least, too bad we lacked PvE to end it before they caught up at 20.
>>5869825 healers aram loses more than it wins but damn if it isn't fun, I think getting a monk is the tie breaker
>>586990Khara/uther/alex instead of angeltits, WM and malf would have been enough. Then again it was ARAM, you don't get full roster to draft from.If we ever get brawls back we need healer version of Mage Wars.
highly unlikely. Dota 2 is the only real rival to league and even it isnt nearly as popular as league. It will be really difficult for microsoft to overthrow a moba giant, but maybe riot will fuck up so badly that ms just may give it a shot.
>120s queue time in the evening as a healeryeah I'm pretty sure they will pull the plug this year
>>587199Do people play QM? I thought it was only ARAM and ranked. Also maybe a healer quest went out or something.
How do i stop my QM orph addiction? Its just too much fun to destroy retards that are completely incapable of avoiding my attacks, and i cant stop
>>587943You probably don't, a ton of decent level/mmr quickmatches are full of one tricks for a good reason - you win a lot that way.

>>587479>implying wow exp Alex is gonna get anywhere near Hots Alex quality
>>587943She's the best mage so you don't. Slept on for a while too for some reason.
>>583339>Will there be renewed life because of the Microsoft acquisition?BHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>589096if 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.
>>588231Kind of difficult to use maybe? Her best skillshot is quite narrow, and she relies on that to position herself
>>589235IDK 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.
anyone up for tl eu ?
>>589286>t. Clearly never tried insatiable+abyssal symbiosis>and an eternal feast shitter
>>589286>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)Umm, sweetie just position correctly
>>589322it's extremely hard to just chomp down on remotely competent players, i'm sure you can qm stomp with that build but that's itas 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 bootthere's a reason it has a higher winrate; plat+ it is a 12% increase over crushing jaws>>589358>just cuck yourself out of your best spell and spam blizzard insteadnah i'm good
>play QM>pick anything squishy = get hunted down by ilidan/butcher/gm>pick melee = you are now team's tank
>>589286>IDK if you're trolling or have a strange definition of best. Q is great for repositioningAnd 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
>>589903Pick tankPick 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 secondsonly if W is on CD as wellQ 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 hitsit's like calling Jaina's Q her best spelllike 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 goodOrphea'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
>>590013What is the point of QM if you absolutely have to pick tank or few of the healers with CC to have a good time?
>>590117why 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 thatOr pick Li Ming with max range orb build and glass cannon and try to shot people from behind terrain
>>590117>>590169another solution: Play ranked without caring about rankJust 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 fillI'd tell you to go unranked with that shit, but that mode is dead
>>590169>QM clownfiestaI 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.
>>590372>ranked I'm already 5 min into the QM.God I wish this was me. I normally can play 2 QM matches in the time it takes for 1 ranked because of the queue.

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.
>>594021Right 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)?
>>599180no "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
>>599347That'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.

>>606532fellow perma plat here I'm curious; what healers do you like?I always see people pick anduin, bw, stukov, and rehgar but feel like alex, lucio, and morales are better picks than some of those oftentimes

>>606715please tell me ;_;I have no friends
>>606715>>606862They're leagues organised by communities. You can join a team or act as a free agent. If you lookup the CCL discord, you'll find in their announcement page for the smaller leagues where you can sign up.A healer like you would probably be in high demand.
>>606898omg are you for real? people to play with?should I just google 'CCL HotS'?please say yes ><
>>606911Yep. You have CCL, Heroes Lounge, Nexomania etc. I've paired up with a few people from there and helped coach one or two players.

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?
>>627041Your 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.
i cant win today
>>628620at least you're living up to your in game name anon
i wish i liked alexstrasza, but i'll stick to my medic game
>>628957what do you like morales over alex? i havent played morales yet (Might soon as i purchased the support bundle)
>>628984alex relies too much on people standing in your goo, and enemies not disrupting your goomomo lets me be a healbot and that's what I like
I feel forced 50 is about to show up its ugly head any moment now.
>>629080You can beat the forced 50 if you aim to be the most impactful player possible. Play the macro and known when to show up for fights. Jaina is the right hero to do that.
>>628992Isnt lucio and lili also like that? also its a circle not goo!
>>629172Lucio is more like, everyone around me BE HEALEDLili is, everyone around me GOOD LUCKmoralis is, YOU OVER THERE BE HEALED (everyone else good luck)
>>629172Not really, with Lili and Lucio you are the circle and your kit encourages you foe more aggressive plays.Lili trait requires her to take damage for CD reduction and Lucio in the competitive pro-scene (CCL) is used for scouting.
>>629182>moralis is, YOU OVER THERE BE HEALED (everyone else good luck)Literally alex Q and R,not the dragon one,the other one
>>629208okay fine she gives me chest envy, are you happy?
>>629182>Lili is, everyone around me GOOD LUCKShe has five different healing tools. Her Q, her W, her R, cleanse and mistweave. That's a far greater potential than Morales's
playing lili makes my wrists hurt from mashing Q

>>629232And her most common and powerful heal tools might as well be RNG selection for how much control you have over who gets it.

I still play a few drunk games almost every weekend, but this game feels like the outcome is decided in draft unless you have exceptionally good or bad players on either side.Curse you, fate, for running this game into the comatose ground.
>>634978i get completely shitfaced at least one night a week and play, at least it's fun :3
>>634979Same, but lately Ive tried to indulge people hogging the dps spots and dropped 2 leagues already. Its quite maddening, even if you give them the heroes they want the muck it all up ...
>>635004i probably going to drink myself stupid tonight
>>634978ah yes the classic 51%
>>634978>>635142>le 51% face
>>635142>>635208I am still amazed how well the match making works, at least in the middle of the playerbase
>>635004another 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%
any anons still use the /vg/ channel in hots itself?
>>635313i do on NA
>>635253Yeah, its effective at balancing you down. As there's always going to be bigger fish than you.>>635256This is important, I think most players don't feedback to themselves on their mistakes. I'm quite brutal myself and will gladly admit if I clowned. From that I've improved a lot from last season.

>>637269I wouldn't call him a shitpick. He's very much a meta dps.
>>637716I imagine it wouldn't be much worse than NA and that was a fucking exercise in futility even at high diamond. People still don't know how to play the fucking game and blame anything but themselves for it.
>>637825Yep. Got into a fight last night about Blackheart Bay and why collecting the coins matters more than araming. Christ, its the one serious PvE map given how strong the obj is and people cannot grasp it.
>>637716The 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.

>>583339The 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.
>>640630>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?
>>640646The 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.
>>640654I 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.
>>640660farming 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 confusedModern 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.
>>640717blizzard being bad at game design is a core reason why their games have been so popular for the last 20 yearsthey have never had any clue what they are doing
>>640630>>640654The way that you describe the game makes me think you don't really understand what you're talking about.Like by money do you mean exp?

Why was removing tower ammo good?
>>644127If 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.
>>644141but they still regained ammo over time it's not like they used it all and then had none for the rest of the game.
>>644127it 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.
>>644144I 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.
>>644150From 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.
>>644153hammer is so fucking gaywhen they're on my team they're literal potato gorilla nigger single-digit iq retardsand when they're on the enemy team they have top in every fucking stat
>>644153When 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?
>>646929In 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
>>646939i agree with most of what you said, somehow the game is my favorite moba
>>646929I think this is inherent of "MOBA" games. I quit them all at 29 and never looked back. Worst waste of time of my life
>>646929Yes, 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.
>>646929Most 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.
>>583339Blizzard 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.

I'm shocked hotsg is still around
Is HOTS still alive? Is it worth coming back to? Should I be concerned that I'm giving Blizzard "something" when I play? (Not like hard money but like playtime and a player number).
>>649495>Is HOTS still alive?yes>Is it worth coming back to?it hasn't fundamentally changed, if you're looking for casual fun - yes, if you're looking to be a pro player - no.>Should I be concerned that I'm giving Blizzard "something" when I play?that mindset is a slippery slope, I'm sure you do a lot of things that contribute in some way to corporations and entities you don't like.I wouldn't worry about it.
>>649466>Oh no! Dehaka broke down my mekka but i am so dummy THICC now i can't get out of the cockpit!
>>649662that image set is pretty good
how long is the average waiting time for ranked these days?
>>649899Depends on your rank and the time of day. Bronze/silver I think is pretty quick. At Plat I have ~20mins if I queue at 3AM but during peak times <5.
>>649502>that mindset is a slippery slopeIs it? how so, never heard someone tell me that before. Typically to me it's kinda binary, give decent game companiest attention if their products are good, or avoid the products of bad or outright evil companies either because shit products or shit practices/treatment of employees.
>>649928Assuming you pay taxes you support the govt in its entirety. Chances are you don't love every single thing they do.If you use Steam you support DRM, gambling (CS:GO), middlemen, billionaires, and furries.If you use Windows you support forced vaccinations, more billionaires, spyware, subscription based software, cloud storage, monopolies, and tax evasion.The point is playing a video game isn't an endorsement of a company, to think using a product is is ridiculous. Boycotting is virtue signaling to the extreme and typically has literally zero (0) effect on revenue.
>>649931Anon here jumped in and wrote what I was going to, the taxes analogy is a bit much since not paying is criminal. What I meant is it's either a slippery slope with little consequences other than your inconvenience or you end up a hypocrite.I get it though because after they took hots behind the shed in 2019 I stopped playing for a long while for similar reasons.
>>649931I mean I just don't want to feel like a hypocrite criticizing a company while still playing their product. That's all.
>>649934I mean my not touching Blizzard stuff was more just general games. But honestly I'm itching to return to some of them. Mostly HOTS and Hearthstone...god I miss Hearthstone, other card games are just too much or not popular enough.
>>649966Funny I actually play so little hearthstone these days and was just today thinking of uninstalling it, I've played it since closed beta and have a bunch of resources in it still (25k dust and much more in old gold cards, probably somewhere between 60-80% of a complete collection).Actually went back to MTG Arena ever since they introduced explorer (an eternal format that might eventually become pioneer) after fucking up historic with Alchemy (digital only cards and card re-balances).
>>583339is this game fun? how much character unlock grind is there? i played a bit during beta but didn't really understand it because MOBAs are strange and i only found about my beta invite in the last week, thinking of getting back to it now that i've forgotten mostly everything about it
rexxar kinda bussin no cap
>>649991Yeah it can be fun, it's certainly the moba with the lowest barrier of entry (I don't know the newish Pokemon one).Getting characters is a bit of a pain (on par with league) but they brought back the 'mega bundles' that you can buy with currency you can earn in-game, only takes a few days at most to earn enough to buy one (100 Gems).>>649993fr fr, apex solo laner
>>649995why am I not seeing those?
>>650004Go to collection->hero bundlesMine doesn't display any but the support and specialist one but I think it's just buggy when you already own all the heroes in the pack
>>650007it only shows the flex bundles and says I own it. Can you only buy one? I don't even remember buying it.
>>650008you bought one then back in the day, can only get one per account
>>650015shit man, that blows
is there a more satisfying mechanic?
>>650124Combining that with anti-click stuff. Can't really do it in HotS but in SC. Like floating an ebay over a turret or ovie over a lurker for anti click, but then the giganigga combo of medics on a ramp under an ebay to just completely cock block it
Is this relevant?https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1518673245
>>650135you just reminded me of probe/drone expansion blocking wars in sc2there's some anti-click stuff in league but it's very janky, warding a thresh lantern.

Imagine having a teammate that takes this Talent vs Garrosh
Has there been an UI update of some sort or is my game just bugged?
>>650547just a bug, I just finished a couple of games and my buttons were finealex UI probably a little more prone to these bugs because of the different set of abilities
>>650532I only ever take master assassin because it's a good shorthand way of figuring out how well the game is going
>>650624that's good value with odin, but he didn't go odin either
>>650532Tychus talents are pretty great desu, I find myself mostly going grenade build with some other shit mixed in, but you actually have options depending on what the game demands
>>650626I mean I never go odin because I like having the laser pointer too much, but master assassin + combat tactician means you get a lot of minigun time regardless. (I will note that I am kind of a shitter though)

>>650948>I like healing without thinking too muchneed to enslave this anon to my healthbar
>>651067Come and get me then
>>651194>NAlatency is icky, would otherwise
>>651263the latency today seems terrible,might be just me
ROIT! IT'S GAMING TOIM MOTHAFOKOR!
>only won one or two of the last 10 matches i playedpls help me not suck anons, i know being a new player to an ages old game is tough but i really want to learn how to play better
>>651756how new? you might be getting the short end of the stick vs smurfs, just focus on getting xp and not dyingplay the same hero again and again until you don't have to think about their kit any more and you'll start absorbing game knowledge
>>651756Ah, sometimes you have a week like that. Shit teammates, shit comps. I normally take a break from playing after that.Are you NA or EU? I'm sometimes get a group together to play and we've had a very decent winrate with my shotcalls. So happy to help people improve.
We are literally seconds away from Wrecking Ball being announced
>>651782I'd take anything at this point but running out of copium for a new hero, hoping for balance changes and maybe a rework if we're lucky.
>>651756Just play more; you're either having your MMR calculated or unlucky. Assuming a 50% winrate having only two wins in ten matches is still like a 6% chance which isn't even enough to meet most scientific tests as being significant.If you have a winrate of like 30% because your MMR is too high compared to what it should be, it's almost like 40% chance of that happening and totally normal.I know it's not really the answer you're looking for but a loss streak like that just isn't notable.
Nazeebo is pretty fun ngl,its like a better yorick and actually gets shit done
>>651855yeah I used to recoil at every nazeebo pick but honestly zombie wall is great and ravenous spirit does obscene amounts of damage, if they manage to stack vile infection is game winning.still mostly don't want to see naz instead of a proper bruiser that can solo/dual lane but don't mind it in some comps.
>neither mentions the spiderswtfthose thingsa re what make him good; just straight up unavoidable gigadamage if your team has any stun/root
>>651893i assumed its the frogs what was OP
>>651906No it's the fact that if you attack him and get stunned you get gigafucked. Superstition has like a 59% winrate. It makes him take way less damage from mages and any bruiser/melee that tries to kill him just gets assraped by spiders.Frogs are a reddit build; they can be good but his strength lies in being extremely hard to kill because of massive completely unavoidable automatic reflect-like damage with zero counterplay.
>>651194What's up anon, fellow burger about to add you.Just getting back into it after a long vidya hiatus in general, so I'm just so-so, but I can for sure play the fuck out of Blaze, Tyrande, and Zul'jin. Have been playing lots of ARAM with a couple friends to try out new heroesNeuromancer#1284 is my battletag
>>652217Anons feel free to add me, playing some matches with some 4chinz frens sounds peak comfyBesides, in my core group of friends one of them has forced some obnoxious loudmouth cunt they're simping over into the group, and she never shuts the fuck up. Would be nice to find another group for a little while kek
>play tracer once>go 20/0people think this is okay?
>Liquid Cooling + Emergency Shielding + Ablative ArmorDon't @ meYou've basically got three full mech HP pools. One baseline, one talent and one bomb. This is broken af.
>>652269t312X234pls don't actually nerf this
>>652217howdy! i'm also an NA healer, add me if you like HealsIvt#1988
Honestly, there's probably enough active people on this general put together a scrim.
>>652343This is the correct build.
>>652368but i am trash :3
>>652386so am i, so what?
trash gamerstrash gamersplay like trashact like gamers
>>652391guess we belong together
fucking hell>playing zagarai just want the gold from level 10
>>652400that tyrande hurts met. tyrande player
>>652386Being trash isn't a hard problem to overcome. So long as you have mechanical skill (when and what buttons to push) the rest can be fixed with playing within a team so it wouldn't be an issue.
>>652405that's kind of you :3
>>652405>mechanical skill (when and what buttons to push)i thought mechanical skill is being able to push the buttons on time, whereas simply knowing which button to push is tactical skill. like that i have a lot of tactical skill but not enough mechanical skill
Alright soon i will have 10k gold at last,do i buy the old man with potions or blondie with heals? (Deckard or Anduin)
>>652468i like em both, anduin stronger in the meta though
>>652468I respect deckards more than anduins, even if anduin is probably better.
2/5/4 Nydus Zagara that unironically didn't know that mercs that cross the "zone" line on Towers of Doom deal damage to your core flamed me for not killing their splitpushing Nazeebo....I solo killed him 3 times. The times I solo killed him my whole team pinged obsessively about the ongoing objective they were losing.This was a ranked game in Gold. Aside from these 3 solo kills I was stomping the enemy so hard before 10 getting kills left and right and soaking lanes, OBVIOUSLY smurfing going A/A Zera.Now that the blogpost is over:People nowadays really need to either join a gym or go see a psychologist, mental health is really deteriorating and you can see it in online games like these quite fucking clearly - by virtue of seeing how the average retard acts when there's no consequences. (Scapegoat using for inadequacy being the #1 online problem plagueing games)Pure lunacy. Oh and aside from going Nydus in ToD while not even knowing how to rotate (repeatedly went through their route while enemies were MIA etc) - she didn't even know how to aim her Q. Like, she flames people yet has IMMEDIATE feedback of how BAD she is at the game.Post-game chat she cited my low damage as reportable (had 40k - she had 52k meaningless fluff damage that never killed anything, ended 2/5 while I was 9/5 - 5 of those pure solo kills and Naz and their backliners).TL;DR: /hotsg/ maxim #38:People that cite "low" numbers on meelee assassins should be euthanized. I'm out.
>>653047>vomiting out a wall of text for being talked to in a videogamechill bro. the guy doesn't know jack shit so why should you take any of his messages close to heart? the important part is that you won, and idiots on your team should make that win all the more sweeter
>>653047imagine getting so effectively verbally abused by someone so far below in rank below yourselfit's embarrassing on its own, but then having the lack of awareness to post about it in hopes of sympathy drive it from being sad for the retard's lack of ability to boisterous laughter at him
>>653047You are either underage, or have never played online multiplayer games beforeOne singular retard got you so pissed that you blogpost about it on an anonymous tibetan yak herding forumProps to that zagara, he/she is skilled
This was the last season of CCL bros...
>>653082>People that cite "low" numbers on meelee assassins should be euthanized. I'm out.That's the maxim for you bronzie. Embrace it and try to ponder it so you can have a better understanding of the game.
>>653176genuinely devastated I've inhaled too much copuim about this game
>>653367i never was into watching, but i play the game a crapload
imagine people believing a moba without main players but a hero ban system was actual esportsit's casual league which explains why watching tournaments of any moba is so boringhots should have had the balls to go on where they started, being smash-like and not giving a fuck so much about balance. make it more solo-carryable, get in main players, give us some stars. instead, we get a few team games that make the scene because a fart at least makes sound or very few streamers/youtubes (who are just annoying prostitutes like everybody recording their soul until completely drained on the internet).but it still stinks, folks. it still doesn't matter.ranked is for pussies who do what they're told to, quick match are potential gigachads of gaming and use their brain once in a while, and have the old child-like fun. prove me wrong.
