Heroes Of The Storm

Overwatch Contenders returns for Season 1 and more esports It’s been a wild week in esports. We heard whispers of the NCAA trying to establish themselves in collegiate esports which is comical at best, given their rules. Since college athletes under their banner aren’t allowed to make money on their given sport, being awarded a Twitch affiliate sponsor button could get one of those...

This week’s free hero rotation comes with brand new bundles After Garrosh’s release last week, it’s same old, same old in the Nexus, with a new rotation and slate of sales in Heroes of the Storm. While we don’t know what’s coming up next for the game, we’re likely to see our next hero, and possibly other fun stuff, at Gamescom next week, so stay...

HGC heads to Taiwan for Eastern Clash, APEX Season 4 begins It’s a weird mix of esport and PVE, but the World of Warcraft team is hosting a competitive Mythic+ dungeon crawl. The deadline to enter — provided you’ve posted scores high enough — is in two weeks. Why not kick back and see if you qualify while you watch these esports this weekend? Heroes of...

Heroes of the Storm Season 2 ends September 5 If you’re participating in Heroes of the Storm‘s ranked Season 2, it’s time to start wrapping things up. Season 2 ends the week of September 5th. That means if you’re working on any of the rewards, you have a month to get that done. The rewards? Substantial! Hero League has a series of rewards based...

Garrosh enters Heroes of the Storm in new patch A brand new patch is here for Heroes of the Storm! At the top of the news is Garrosh’s official debut. He’s been on the PTR for the past week, but today he’s finally set to arrive in the live Nexus. Garrosh is intended to be a solo tank, so while he won’t be bursting...




Garrosh is here with this week’s Heroes rotation On top of the standard weekly rotation, Garrosh arrives in Heroes of the Storm this week. Whether you’re planning on picking him up or not, you’ll want to be aware of his skills… because you’re sure to see plenty of Garroshes (is that really the plural of Garrosh?) running around this week. Here’s what you can...

HGC Western Clash and more esports I’m back from a well-earned vacation. Ah yes, I didn’t play or watch any video games while I took my leisure, which seems kind of backwards, but hey. I didn’t even look at twitter once, y’all. Now I’ve got a lot to catch up on. Here are the esports I’ll be watching this weekend while...



Garrosh hits the Heroes PTR and a new rotation hits the live servers It’s not quite new hero day in Heroes of the Storm, but it’s getting close. Garrosh arrived on the PTR yesterday — along with some new skins and a few hero tweaks — which means he’ll probably be on the live servers next week. And if you haven’t been paying attention over the last week,...

Garrosh arrives on the Heroes PTR alongside several new skins As was foretold, Garrosh has arrived on the Heroes of the Storm PTR. Interested players can give the latest HotS addition a try by selecting the Public Test Realm region from the Blizzard launcher. If you haven’t been on the PTR in a while, you will need to play 3 games to earn the requisite...

Nightmare-fuel Anub’arak, Templar Li-Ming, and more coming to the Nexus soon Garrosh will be coming to the Nexus in the not-too-distant future, and like most hero additions, he’s not coming alone. The Heroes of the Storm team just released the latest in-development video, and it’s chock full of goodies. My personal favorites are the Anub’alisk skin that turns Anub’arak into a Zerg, and the Templar Li-Ming...

Garrosh Hellscream comes in like a ball that wrecks in his Hero spotlight Garrosh Hellscream will be making his Heroes of the Storm debut in the near future, and like all heroes, he’s received a hero spotlight to help get you pumped for his arrival. Oh, and obviously to give you a juicy preview of all his abilities. Most of Garrosh’s abilities are not exactly high-damage nukes, as...

Latest Heroes balance update reworks Stukov Keeping all of the heroes in Heroes of the Storm on par with one another is a constant balancing act, as indicated by regular balance patches. The latest batch of updates hits both Genji and Xul with some nerfs, cutting their health and increasing cooldown times. Though neither have complete reworks, players will probably feel...

Waiting for Garrosh with this week’s Heroes rotation Happy Tuesday, Heroes of the Storm players! Last week we found out that Garrosh Hellscream would be the game’s newest hero, but he’s not hitting the PTR this week. Though he’ll be playable at ChinaJoy, we won’t see him on the PTR until the 31st. And it’s a quiet week in the Nexus: the Sun’s...

HGC highlight reels and more in Blizzard esports this week It always seems like Blizzard’s esports come in waves together. HGC is wrapping up for its next series of clashes, and Hearthstone‘s Global Games are almost ready to rest until the finals play out during BlizzCon. There’s always something to watch on the weekends, but it seems like everything is at a downswing. It’s pretty...

Garrosh Hellscream is coming to Heroes of the Storm Yesterday, Blizzard teased us with a fittingly cryptic image that would somehow relate to Heroes of the Storm’s next hero. Speculation was spread pretty wide, as a figure coming through the Dark Portal could mean any number of things. Would we be seeing Akama? Maiev? Ner’zhul? The list went on. That list, however, was shortened...
