Hero and Skin Suggestions

Sep 12, 2018 Idea to make a 'shop keeper' based hero So...this may be a bit of a weird idea. I'm not even sure how well it would work. But it's been one floating in my head. Could be cool, could not work at all. The character idea I have sorta floating in my weird little mind is a combination of 3. Haedrig Eamon, Myriam Jahzia, and Covetous Shen. Also known as the 3 Artsians of Diablo 3. They would control like the lost Vikings, except that they can't attack, can't be targeted, have no HP. They are just there on the battlefield. They won't even soak XP or give vision. (Unless they are in an allies vision range) But, what they are, are support characters who each have like maybe 1-2 abilities to help in a fight. But they are mainly used to give stat upgrades, and bonuses to their team mates. I imagine a concept could be that gold spawns every time an enemy hero, minion, or merc is killed. Heros can walk over the gold to pick it up. Or if you don't wanna risk selfishness, have it act like healing globes. The 3 can also pick up gold on their own to either empower abilities, or give discounts. Even offer stuff for free. At any time, a hero can walk up to one of the 3, and choose to shop. This...is where I have trouble thinking on what the 3 different characters could provide. But the trend follows, use gold to buy either small stat upgrades that are permanent, buy better upgrades that are temporary. (Maybe shen offers permanent and Haedrig offers the temporary) or give temporary bonuses to heros abilities. Like adding slow, damage over time, or other fun things. The last idea I kinda have floating, is that one of their heroic ability options would be to allow you to temporarily upgrade an allies heroic ability to the storm talent version. But I'm unsure of what it would become if they picked the storm talent ultimate. So....is the idea of a merchant based hero garbage? Or is there potential in the idea? Let me know. I'm not experienced at the game nearly as well as a lot of people. But I wanted to see what people would say.sun40000 Sep 12, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 Verok Saurfang Hero Consept Mr. Honor himself ladies and gentlemen. I slightly changed the idea I had before, did a bit of tweaks, let me know what you think. https://www.heroesfire.com/hots/concept/varok-saurfang-9907Dshobz010 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 Hero Suggestion From Destiny 2 can we please have Destiny 2 Characters in game ? i'd love to play as Cayde-6 or other Destiny 2 Characters.EXP3RT10N15M6 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 Mecha skins More mecha skins needed, here's my top list: Diablo Varien Tychus Malfurion Malthael ArthasWrongSideBud2 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 KT 2nd worst mage My personal oppinion (Keep it nice and polite or dont respond) The worst mage is Chromie after rework (Rip) Kael'thas is a hero with more luck then kill potentional + He has zoning + Good waveclear - Bad boss dmg - Livin bombs are easy to dodge - Almost no kill potention or a hero must be out of place - Needs to be with the team constantly He has a 1s stun that is skillshot based. He needs constant protection and his abilities are easy to dodge. Still much people ban him or see him as a must pick. In my oppinion he gets really overshadowed by other mages and deserves a rework. I love the guy but hate the heroHarbinger0 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 ANDUIN - Multi-Class Priest Anduin, like his father Varian, could be a multi-class priest, Disc/Holy/Shadow. Where shadow leeches and heals a little (think Medivh/Abathur). I realize that the obscure character of Whitemane coming out probably ruins any chances of this coming out. Regardless, your thoughts?BlueK0 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 Give Gul'Dan a staff! In almost every depiction of him (movie, fanart, games, statues etc.) Gul'dan carries a staff that looks pretty badass! Examples: https://cdn8.bigcommerce.com/s-2zs1uo/images/stencil/2048x2048/products/230/6622/GuldanStatue1__27347.1519688928.jpg?c=2 https://media.mmo-champion.com/images/news/2016/march/WCMHalo03.jpg https://www.sideshowtoy.com/assets/products/903059-guldan/lg/warcraft-gul'dan-premium-statue-damtoys-903059-01.jpg http://i.imgur.com/dHjPjg8.jpg https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81bm8PezmOL._SX425_.jpg Why not give him a staff in hots? He would look so much cooler and it would fit his play style as the slow moving damage beast with no mobility ;)Lobokonk2 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 11, 2018 Why does Chromie suck so damn bad now? As if it the HP wasn't bad enough...as if the ability to actually land a hit wasn't bad enough, now you remove the range and nerf the damage....what the....Chromie is probably the worst hero on this right now....makes 0 sense to me. Even with the range it was damn near impossible to hit something unless u stayed WAYY far behind and hid to hit behind walls...and even then, they can clearly see you jumpin up to throw an attack and all they do is go up, or down and that's it...this makes no sense why you would make Chromie THIS damn bad...n0p30 Sep 11, 2018
Sep 10, 2018 Thanks a lot, but 1 more thing Thanks a lot for finaly giving me mephisto. There is no word to express my gratitude. But i would like the orginal d2 skin as a new skin for mephisto. yes 2 insect like arms, but not 2 human arm as well, it originally had 2 tentacles. plus a human like skull with very small green eyes, and the horns.

Sep 10, 2018 5 Greater Evils and 4 Angels are still missing Greater Evils or The 7 Evils of Hell: Mephisto - Lord of Hatred Baal - Lord of Destruction Belial - Lord of Lies Duriel - Lord of Pain Andariel - Maiden of Anguish Angiris Council or Archangels: Imperius - Archangel of Valor Itherael - Archangel of Fate Another Angels: Izual - The Betrayer Urzael - Harbinger of Death I really wonder when we will get these guys in HotS? I can't believe that 3 years and half have passed since Azmodan release and still no other Greater Evil in game >_< I know some people wants more Diablo Classes in HotS but c'mon Class section needs a break, HotS needs more Greater Evils, Angels and more Bosses (Villains) from Diablo Franchise.LordFrieza38 Sep 10, 2018
Sep 10, 2018 Quest Auto select The Auto-select Option for Hero select currently allows you to specify rolls. I suggest adding an option to specify "Hero's that satisfy my current daily quests"Tanerat3 Sep 10, 2018
Sep 10, 2018 Mephisto; His role in the game. Hello. I'm hoping to hear the communities feelings about the new hero, Mephisto. I'm not here to talk about anything but his game balance, abilities, build options and possible modification to stats. My hope is that by expressing our thoughts about the new hero, the dev's can make any necessary changes to reflect the communities wishes.MadDragon3 Sep 10, 2018
Sep 10, 2018 Hero Suggestion Death Knight Multiclass like Varian. Choose Blood, Ice, Unholy spec.Xathrid0 Sep 10, 2018
Sep 10, 2018 Dehaka cannot use "brushstalker" while burrowed. As in title, why is it made like that ? His z teleport ability makes him dig through battlefield and emerge somewhere else. So why, if he is already burrowed, he cannot use it ? There are some really OP escape abilities in game and yet this one, thats really just a logical progression is somehow omitted. Why is that so ?Mgaak6 Sep 10, 2018
Sep 10, 2018 More angels? We need more archangels!!! Imperious would be badass, and I would play the pants off of him!!! just a thought blizzard. :)Ren1 Sep 10, 2018
Sep 9, 2018 Gold Space Lords StarBreaker Mount I just purchased the gold/purple Space Lords Leo skin and would like too have a matching mount. Thought this would be a nice addition for Leoric players.XHunterGon0 Sep 9, 2018

Sep 9, 2018 Probious (Yes him) Skin suggestion The Eye of Kilrogg. That sounds like a really interesting idea and seems like it would fit the model of Probious. And I'm talking about the WoW version of the Eye, not the one that Cho'gall hasDshobz014 Sep 9, 2018
Sep 9, 2018 Make Tyrande heal again! I played Tyrande before her rework and she was great as a healer. Now they want to reinvent her which is tremendous! If you agree with me, let the developers know by liking stuff like this :p So share your fantasy how you want to see Tyrande as a main healer. I prefer to see her as a healer with some rewarding element for helping other heroes "showing her loving side" Below this is a topic The Heroes of the Storm development team answered on Reddit. Tyrande’s current play style and talent builds can be really unique and compelling for certain players, but she doesn’t really have a role in the current meta. Internally, we are currently exploring some design changes to Tyrande that would make her viable as a solo healer. Overall the changes have been received very positively by our team, but there is a tradeoff: She is losing a lot of damage and her ability to chunk people from long distances with her owl build. This is something that we recognize can be fun for Tyrande players, so we’re carefully debating if this is the right direction for her. I’m curious to hear any thoughts you all have on this. Obviously, we could go the opposite route for her and remove/reduce her healing mechanic and point her more towards a ranged assassin.Harbinger13 Sep 9, 2018
Sep 9, 2018 Mephisto Should Be Surrounded By Mist ALL The Time I get that it's supposed to be his hero-specific mount but I feel like the unholy mist that surrounds Mephisto's severed torso is absolutely INTEGRAL to his design. I'm not going to start a debate about the model itself as there's probably enough threads on that already (and skins could always be added later to address that issue) but I feel his mist is one of his most iconic and recognizable features. He can still have his hero-specific mount, just make the current mount part of his normal look and make that cloud around him bigger or crackle with electricity or something when he's mounted up. Kel'Thuzad is surrounded in mist at all times, it's just much more noticeable when he's mounted. I see no reason why Mephisto can't work the same way and I think it's REALLY hurting people's perception of his debut in The Nexus by not having it be apparent even when he's... ummm... walking? You know what I mean! :PSeath11 Sep 9, 2018
Sep 8, 2018 Hanzo needs more skins Hanzo has many amazing looking skins in Overwatch, and literally any of them would be great in HotS. There really is not much else to say. The designs are already there, they just need to be recreated in HotS.Ash4 Sep 8, 2018
Sep 8, 2018 Larva (Starcraft) The only multiclass in the game is Varian, so would be really nice to see more multi-class characters on HOTS. I think would be really nice to see the larva from Starcraft, because the larva can transform itself into any zerg unit.ggizi4 Sep 8, 2018
Sep 7, 2018 Mephisto skin suggestion: L'Mefausto the evil gentleman! Mephisto needs a skin where he's that typical evil from the cartoons, something like this: https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_1008.JPG He could have a monocle, maybe even a tophat, and his mustusks (mustache tusks) will be a true mustache, evil mustache! MUAHAHAHA!Karabars0 Sep 7, 2018
Sep 7, 2018 "Mada mada" voiceline Hello there, I'm writing here today to ask the devs to add one of the most iconic voicelines existing in Overwatch: Genji's "Mada mada!". Considering how popular, how symbolic, how meme-ish this line is, I feel like I'm missing something *really* important whenever I'm playing my favorite cyber ninja. I know that the line already exists, but we can't select it from hero customisation's screen... So what, any Overwatch player can feel a great deal of well-being from spamming "mada mada" during a whole game, but us, HotS players, are not allowed to experience such a pleasure? This is an injustice, for sure. Please fix it, please fix this game. This is a lot more important than you can think. Thanks for your time!Abaca0 Sep 7, 2018
Sep 7, 2018 New Genji Skins and Artwork colors The new skins and the color of their respective skills, don't match? Leoric's Space Lord variants all have skill colors that match the skin. It's off putting and makes everything, to me, feel other skins outside of the primary one are worthless aesthetically.Prophet1 Sep 7, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 You have ruined Kel'thuzad! So, blizzard, you have ruined Ke'thuzad's ability to make cool plays by using structures with chains. So I was like, you better give him a TON of damage in return. NOPE instead you did the OPPOSITE. I am pissed off. Now K'TZ (Kel'thuzad) combos aren't rewarding at all, and are super hard to hit because the enemy runs out of chain range when you spawn the glacial spike which takes forever to appear. You stack slower, you deal less damage because Blizzard removed all of those situations where K'TZ could save him self by chaining someone to a structure. The cool down reduction you moved to base line power from his passive quest isn't enough. It does compensate a little, but still not enough. My Shadow fissure is so hard to hit and doesn't reward me with big damage any more. I also cannot chain someone to a structure far a way from me to hit them with my ult, I miss out on so many chances that K'TZ used to be able to take advantage of because of the Mechanic you took away and the ridiculous amount of damage Blizzard has removed from K'TZ ult. Sometimes I do not even see the damage from my ult on beefier heroes and I only see it tickle a bit even on CHROMIE when I do not have my 75% spell power. If you want to increase his consistency than Make his Glacial spike appear faster, to give his opponents less time to react. Than Make his glacial spike stun when it explodes and make it so you can reactivate it to detonate it early. That would be cool. You should also bring back all of the damage you have taken away from K'TZ Shadow fissure. (back to 440 from 360) And make it so Death and decay's explosion gives blight to make up for the lost opportunities to get blight from chaining enemies to structures. Another Idea I had was to increase the spell damage from max blight to 82.5% from 75%. This is to also make up for the lost opportunities for DAMAGE without structure chaining. I also had a fun Idea I had is that Every point of blight increases the root duration of W and stun duration of E by 0.03333 seconds. SO at max blight you stun and root for an extra 0.99999 seconds. Which would be a good punishment for people who decided to stick around while a glacial spike with a chain was on it and this punishment would get more severe as the game went on because you would get stun locked for longer with each blight that K'TZ has. That all of my ideas I have more but I do not think they are balanced. Here are my other ideas. q explosion damage increased by 12( isn't actually that IMBA) W root is now a stun At max blight, all of your abilities take 35% less time to cast, to finish animation, to recover from. (SUPER IMBA, but is still fun to think about)Chaos0070 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Li-Ming Announcer So, we got two new announcers from Diablo and Athena from Overwatch. Why aren't we getting Li-Ming as a announcer. From the Nephalem we have Sonya Valla and Naz. So why not Li-Ming, her personality and quotes are awsome. Please make it real :czeldsfan0 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Narud So Narud should be released as a sustain assassin, and one of his ulti should allow him to toggle into Samir Duran as a burst assassin with a different set of basic abilities. Then his other ulti should either allow him to shapeshift into a more melee focused assassin (like his Sarah Kerrigan transformation in his fight with the Queen of Blades) or use the massive beam of energy that does a bit of damage and pushes enemies backward. So for an example: Narud: Q- Energy particle: shoots an energy projectile that damages the first enemy it hits W- Psionic ring: creates a small ring moving outwards that does a small amount of damage and slows enemies hit E- Summon Hybrid: Summons a hybrid to fight for a short time. Ulti 1-Samir Duran: Q- Headshot: Durans next attack does extra damage W- EMP: Duran shoots a small emp missile that drains mana equal to a small percent of the damage it does overall (so it does more mana drain if it hits multiple heroes) E- Ghosts: Samir becomes truly invisible (unstoppable, invisible) and walks to a designated location at enhanced speed. Ulti 2- Sarah Kerrigan (ghost form) Q- Psionic grasp: Suspends a hero in air for a short duration, during which they are stunned. W- Psionic Blade: Kerrigan's basic attacks do extra damage for (x) time. E- Knock back: Kerrigan releases a small Psionic blast that damages enemies and knocks them away from herself. Just my thoughts, would be a fun hero to play. Though balancing him may be difficult.Tyro1 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Multiclass hero "druid" Guys when will you create a druid feral as multiclass hero like varian or karazim? I think Fandral Staghelm is a good exemple or another druid that you think is good. Like varian he should choose his spec as tank or dps at level 4 , and when we choose the spec tree our abilities should change like the one's Valeera has. One set for tank spec and another set for assasin. For a random druid let's say the Q ability specced for tank will make the druid charge like misha and stun for a % of target health, W to make to slow the targets and E to swipe doing increased damage to targets below 50% health. R should be a taunt or a demoralizing roar like Garosh's decimate at lvl 20. And as an assasin the D should be a stealth cloack like zeratul's , Q something like valeera'S blade flurry, W a bleed effect with a short stun, E a smell spell to detect enemies low beneath 25% health global and for R something like tyrandes ulti with movement speed and atack speed or some leap like Lunaras. For the humanoid spec you choose the spells.Furrion2 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Sombra: Specialist. I think Sombra would be a bloody cool specialist. I feel like she'd be a copy and paste hero from Overwatch, basically: Passive: Same as Overwatch, Sombra reveals low health heroes - but only to her (this is important, as it stops illidan Hunting on to someone and destroying them while there's nothing they can do). This would allow for teams with good communication to set up Ganks/baits/ etc at Sombra's discression. Q: Hack. Works the same way as OW, after a small channel time Sombra hacks the target Structure/Minion/Hero. Disabling structures, possessing minions (And the two minions next to them) and temporarily silences hero. Depending on balance this can be cancelled by taking X amount of damage, or being stunned/silenced out of it or the target moving out of range. W: Translocate. A short range teleport that can be placed. I'm still undecided as to whether or not it should be destroyable, But this has a max range (that will be dictated by a dotted line, think of hammers Siege range indicator) so Sombra can't just plant it in some bushes 30 million kilometres away, go do something dumb and then be back in her base, free of death. This would also have a timer on it, potentially 10 or so seconds. E: Stealth. I'm adamant that this should be an active ability rather than a passive stealth, that only lasts for a small amount of time (Much like Overwatch). This could be used to dash between lanes undetected, get in close to get a hack off etc. No bonus damage should be awarded for coming out of stealth. This would last about 3-4 seconds max, and there is NO "Unrevealable" attached to it. R1: EMP. Works similarly to Malfs Twilight dream, but on steroids. After a small channel, Sombra detonates a AOE hack in a large area, affecting everything according to hack rules, as well as doing some damage. R2: Need help with this! So these are my ideas so far. I super love Sombra in hots and think she'd be a great addition to the hots roster. I've purposely not given her boat loads of damage through abilities as I don't think that suits her playstyle, at least not in this form. I still need help with the second Ult and some ideas for passives. Let me know what ya think.Tazdingo10 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Malthael Angel form skin A skin of Malthael while he was an angel would be cool. There's a quick glimpse of it in the cut-scene after you defeat Malthael in Reaper of Souls.yoyo83461 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Dekard Cain skin: Pepin the healer This would be neat, but mainly for the different voice clips for stay awhile or whatnot. Skins don't have to be amazing, but just neat :)Telemachos0 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 6, 2018 Hero Concept: Reinhardt The first Hero with a Shield that doesn't just give extra health for a couple of seconds and actually blocks stuff. Trait: Honor and Glory Every time Reinhardt Casts an ability or basic attacks an enemy, he gains 10% cc reduction, stacking up to 50%. Additionally, Reinhardt's basic attacks are in a very wide but short cone and slightly push back the enemies hit. Q Ability: Fire Strike: Channel for 1 second (can move during the channel) and launch a Varian fire strike at an enemy, dealing a large amount of dmg with a small amount of damage over time, the fire strike will then leave a burning mark on the ground and all enemies that stand on it gain a small dmg over time that stacks for every 0.5 seconds they are on it. W ability: Shield Reinhardt holds up a semi large shield, blocking all damage that comes to it, shielding your allies, it has 5000 health, but the more it takes damage, the more broken it gets, making it lose Armour (take more dmg) it can be cancelled, making it slowly gain health again, but if broken gives a 15 second cooldown until being able to be used at full health again. E ability: Charge Reinhardt Rushes forward until colliding with terrain, if an enemy is in his path, he will push them towards the location he is heading, and if he slams an enemy into terrain, they take alot of damage and are stunned for 1.25 seconds. Damage and speed increase the longer Reinhardt is rushing forward. R Ability No1: Earth Shatter Channel for 1.5 seconds before slamming your hammer into the ground and stunning all enemies in front of reinhardt for 1.75 seconds, dealing a small amount of damage and then slowing them by 10% for 1.75 seconds after the stun R Ability No1 Talent: It pulls enemies hit towards reinhardt like old garrosh, and increases the slow to 50%, but decreasing the stun duration to 1 second. R Ability No2: Armoured German Knight Reinhardt gains 75 Armour for 1.5 seconds, but the duration is increased by 0.25 every time Reinhardt is damaged by an enemy Hero. R Ability No2 Talent: Enemies that attack Reinhardt gain 60% attack speed for 0.5 seconds but have their damage reduced by 80%. Additionally, being attacked by non heroes also add duration, but only add 0.1 seconds (to give rein alot of armour duration)Trebor1 Sep 6, 2018
Sep 5, 2018 Knights of the Frozen Throne Skins and Anduin Wouldn't it be fun if we added Anduin Wrynn in the game and have the Hearthstone's "Knights of the Frozen Throne" Hero cards as a skin?

Sep 5, 2018 Trolls of nexus I know this wount happend but i feel urgent need for some trollnes in hots. There is only Zul'jin i know there is no real gnome, or forsaken, or even real Tauren and this should be solved but still Zul'jin is Amani not a darksper, not a playable troll, not an original race of New Horde. Some new troll hero (hopefully Vol'jin or Rokhan) would be nice but iam in such state that i would take even skin, something like this: Head hunter Cassia would worked cool, Batrider falstad would be greate, even Troll Witchdoctor Nazzebo cold go well, Diretroll butcher is not so obvious choice for me but i would take even troll Deckhard just cause. Is there anyone who feels the same? Is there anyhope for me?Trollcrates2 Sep 5, 2018
Sep 5, 2018 Can we get an Ana buff Ana's talents needs work. Her level 1 talents takes insanely long to complete, and because of how long it takes to complete them; players tend to lean towards Piercing Dart or Grenade Calibration. As good as Detachable Box Mag is, it's requirements to complete it is insane. Stack 5 doses on a hero, 12 times. thats 60aa as much as I like the concept of her Aim Down Sight talents at level 4, it is quite useless. I would assume it's meant to increase vision and increase your ability to stack doses on enemy heroes. But all it does is it leaves you vulnerable because has a -20% movement speed AND it also have a 2 sec CD to toggle on and off.Melee4 Sep 5, 2018
Sep 5, 2018 Artanis - Rework Hi everyone! Blizzard reworks Artanis in the 2018-07-25 Balance Update, but I think it's incomplete. So I made a complete rework of the Protoss Hierarch! You can check it on HotS Fire : https://www.heroesfire.com/hots/concept/artanis-rework-10030 I hope you will enjoy it and do not hesitate to let me a comment about it!

Thank you for reading and have a nice day ! ;)Greenmans0 Sep 5, 2018
Sep 5, 2018 [Map Suggest] Line Hero Wars I made a paint mockup so I don't have to overexplain this bc a picture is worth a thousand words https://postimg.cc/image/703da5gbl/ It's the WC3 custom map genre of Hero Line Wars but with all controlling the interface of the maps that's usually done with an invuln building replaced with mercs Each team has two lanes that converge halfway down, with their core and spawn at one end and the enemy's minions spawning at the other side. There are no defending minions in your own lanes so you have to clear all the waves or lose base health The merc camps get stronger the farther from the minion spawn you get. The camps on the safer outer lane increase the friendly minion spawns the enemy has to fight, the camps on the inner lane wear down down the otherwise invulnerable gate on your side of the bridges which turns friendly upon dying and then lane down it, attempting to cap the far gate and then kill the mercs guarding the enemy's side of the bridge to secure your hold on it, and the merc on the inner lane next to the minion spawns air units who fight the enemy's air units and grant bridge vision as long as they're alive, and two merc camps guard a pair of enemy-only gates in the wall between the two lanes pre-convergence that repair it so your enemies can use it or collapse it so they can't (and it starts collapsed) If both teams cap a bridge the bridge collapses (from the outside in and a portal in the middle instahearths you) and then respawns with gates intact, so a bridge can only remain useable for one team. If you invade the enemy's side of the map and steal their mercs, they merely die and get an increased cooldown taking their utility away from that team (so bossing can't benefit the enemy team if they're invading). The boss instantly respawns all your team's merc camps on cooldown and adds an extra unit to the merc camps with a duration of that camp's remaining cooldown (so a camp that wasn't dead gets a boost that lasts the longest, but a merc camp that was nearly respawned when you got the boss needs to be capped quickly or the boost will be lost). The boss respawns quickly but gets stronger every time you cap him. If the enemy team caps a bridge, successfully invades & kills your mercs on that bridge the only way to force the bridge closed is to either wait for them to respawn while the enemy team has free reign or force their respawn (and making them stronger/harder to kill in the process) by killing your boss Bc capping spawn mercs spawn two of that cap (one for each lane), the most efficient way for characters without good waveclear to help their team is to cap a bridge, invade the enemy team's side, cap an invader shortcut gate to grant them easy access to the enemy's outer lane and then tie up their heroes on the side of their lane that puts pressure on your own defenders, clearing up more (but never all) of your team to aid in invading. This game mode essentially never allows a team to safely commit to a 5v_, but does offer the option to do so at risk of your own base taking damage while you're away (and risking getting trapped on the enemy's side and forced to try and find a safe place to hearth), giving a risk-reward mechanic that allows the team on the backfoot to secure a comeback by trapping the invaders on their side of the map and then turning up the pressure on their enemy's abandoned base Also bc there's no phasing timer, the pace of the match is largely controlled by the player's waveclear and mercing speed.Deshara2 Sep 5, 2018

Sep 4, 2018 Whitemane Fix First stumble down to the nearest hospital. Let them know about the railspike lodged in your skull. They'll take you, remove it, keep you for a while to keep tabs on your health, then they'll bill you (a lot!). Give them your insurance, or if you don't have any then just never pay it back. Then, once you're cleared to go back to work now that your debilitating head injury has been dealt with, give whiteman's Q a cooldown and make her W and E cost mana.Deshara10 Sep 4, 2018
Sep 3, 2018 The CDC Returns September 2018 Greetings once again to all of our lovely character designers and fans of Blizzard. The fifth Concept Design Contest will be returning September 1st for anyone who wishes to put forth their concepts in a community judged contest to determine who has the best design, with constant feedback and some extra spotlight for the winner. If this is your first time seeing this contest, here is some information for you: The idea for this contest is that anyone who wants to would sign up, and on the start of September, a thread would be posted with all the relevant information. Each contest will have a theme to it, and everybody that signs up is expected to make a brand new concept based on that theme. Anyone who creates a concept will have a week to finish their base concept and submit it to the forums with a link to the contest thread. This will start the contest. The contest will have three judges, who will each take one week to look over the designs, commenting and helping out with the design. The week breakdown will go as follows: Sign-Up Saturday, September 1 This is when the concept will be posted, and anyone can sign up for the contest! The judges will also be sorted out on this day. Judges are not able to make concepts themselves. Week One Sunday, September 2 - Saturday, September 8 This week is for the base concept. This is simply the abilities and the role. A judge will comment on the Sunday that follows. Week Two Monday, September 10 - Saturday, September 15 This week is for the talents. This means a fully fleshed out talent tree set up with the tiers in order. A judge will comment on the Sunday that follows. Week Three Monday, September 17 - Saturday, September 22 This week is for the finishing touches. This includes fluff, stats, additional notes, skins, and whatever else you want to add. A judge will comment on the Sunday that follows. Week Four Monday, September 24 - Saturday, September 29 This week is the last week for changes to the concept. All major work should be finished by this week, and major changes are risky. The judges will keep a close eye on the concepts, coming to their own opinions. Finale Sunday, September 30 - Tuesday, October 2 All changes are closed. The judges will gather to determine who is the ultimate winner of the contest, announcing the winner sometime on Tuesday.Bliztron18 Sep 3, 2018
