Heroes Of The Storm

Stukov confirmed as the next hero coming to Heroes of the Storm Given yesterday’s teaser, it may not come as a huge shock to learn Stukov has officially been announced as the next hero to join Heroes of the Storm’s Nexus. For now, that’s… kind of all we know. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long — we’ll be getting a gameplay reveal and developer interview tomorrow...

Latest Heroes of the Storm hotfixes nerf Genji, Malthael, and more It was less than an hour ago that Blizzard teased what we expect to be Stukov’s arrival in the Nexus, which means it’s also time to make adjustments to Heroes of the Storm’s previous new hotness, Malthael. Today’s hotfixes nerf quite a few of Malthael’s talents, particularly those which interacted with his Tormented Souls Heroic...

A new week in the Nexus means a new hero rotation It looks like a quiet week in the Nexus, fellow heroes. The Malthael’s Bargain event just wrapped up and with nothing new to take its place (that we know of), it’s business as usual in Heroes of the Storm this week. Of course, that’s while I’m writing this: we should be getting another new hero...




Heroes of the Storm’s unofficial soundtrack brings Support tunes Heroes of the Storm has been having a bit of fun building an unofficial soundtrack for its vast array of characters.

HGC returns, GSL Code S finals, and more Blizzard esports Now that Dreamhack is over, the dog days of summer are beginning in earnest.  It’s a great time to sit inside with the air conditioning on to watch some esports. HGC is continuing with a fresh slate, Overwatch Contenders is almost through with the group stage, and Seat Story returns this week, so let’s get to...

First impressions of Malthael plus new hero rotations Malthael has been bringing death to the Nexus for a week now, so we’ve had plenty of time to gather up our impressions… and they aren’t great. Competitive player Cattlepillar had this to say about the Nexus newcomer: it feels like literally half of malthaels talents should be baseline, his kit feels so poorly designed...

Heroes of the Storm doesn’t force a 50% winrate, merely encourages it {PB} In all of Blizzard’s competitive games, the mythical 50% winrate is held up as both a blessing and a curse among the community. When looking at balance, players consider something only truly balanced if it has a 50% winrate — and if they go on winning or losing streaks, the matchmaking system is often...
