Heroes Of The Storm

Are you participating in the Call of Kel’Thuzad event? Things in Heroes of the Storm just got a little more interesting. There’s a tinge of iciness in the air of the Nexus — a feeling that marks the arrival of the much-anticipated hero, Kel’Thuzad. In proper style, Blizzard didn’t just release Kel’Thuzad and call it a day, however — there’s been fanfare both in...

How do you decide which game to play? You really love Overwatch but patch 7.3 just dropped — how do you choose which one gets your time? Is it by which game has more friends wanting to play it with you? Do you have raid commitments or a steady crew mowing down Reaper? My wife and I spent the last two months playing Seasonal...

Blizzard reminds players to not be jerks in Heroes of the Storm, bans several AFKers As we approach the release of Kel’Thuzad in The Nexus, it’s worth noting that Blizzard recently proved they’re not going to mess around with toxic players in Heroes of the Storm.

Answer the Call of Kel’Thuzad in new Heroes of the Storm event Kel’Thuzad is (inexplicably) one of the most highly anticipated additions to Heroes of the Storm.

However, thanks to the latest In...

Kerrigan and The Butcher rebalanced in latest Heroes of the Storm patch Heroes of the Storm released its latest balance patch earlier this week and some of the larger changes caught players by surprise. Notably, both Kerrigan and Chen received nerfs. Neither character is particularly popular in Heroes and what little data players can access through third party websites shows these characters with a less-than-stellar winrate. Initially, these...

Kel’Thuzad’s ability overview reveals the true meaning of cold dark I’m still happy-crying over today’s Kel’Thuzad reveal as the next hero coming to the Nexus.
