He's pretty fun. Not "crap" at all.

What you meant to say is that you personally might not be interested in him, which is quite different than a statement on quality which you tried to confuse it with.

Wrong.
Keep sucking Blizzard's junk while coming up with petty excuses, though.
Btw, him being 'fun' is not an argument (some people find having sex with children 'fun', and last time I checked, that argument doesn't work in the court).


yeah, except you'll find, this is not a !@#$ing court, this is a video game designed for people to have fun in.
I've seen your kind before, and there is no reasoning with you


That's amusing since you're the one who is being illogical and unreasonable.

he is yet another mage assassin


Which, again, is just you personally not being interested. If you seriously thought that the original orc warlock would be anything but a ranged assassin (or a damage-focused ranged specialist as an outside chance), then you were just kidding yourself.

a total fail to represent Gul'Dan for what he is.


He is the original orc warlock. Darkness Incarnate. It represents him perfectly in that capacity. Going any other direction for him would just be trying to disappointingly shoehorn him into another role to appease a minority who have weird perceptions of characters.

you just boild things down 'well, if a lot of people like it, then it's fine, hurrr, durrr'.


People liking something in a video game is somewhat important. Otherwise there is no point. At the same time, not everything is going to appeal to everyone. You aren't interested in this hero. Others are. The OP seems to be enjoying him quite a bit, for example. Your original assertion that the hero is "crap" because you are not interested in him is ridiculous. His quality seems to be good, whether or not he's a hero you're interested in buying.

He's crap.
A yet another mage (I know he's a warlock in lore, I'm talking about his sub-role in HotS) assassin?
YAAAAAAAAWN!
DotA did a WAY better job when it comes to making a warlock.

He actually doesn't play anything like the other mages. He's all sustained damage, none of the insta-gib burst nonsense we're familiar with. As someone who absolutely detests playing mages I'm considering dropping the 15k for Gul'dan.
They did a really good job with Gul'dan. Life Tap trait is perfect and really defines him and a unique hero.
I haven't played him, but he doesn't look very exciting. He's probably strong, but there's not a whole lot of innovation in his design. It's especially weird that they just gave him Medivh's q(Stronger, but still...it's Medivhs Q). I don't really know if they were trying to go for some similar theme or something? But I don't know what that theme IS, because it's not good vs evil because arcane rift is arcane.

But why else would you give two heroes in a row the exact same skillshot?

Horrify does look pretty cool though.
Looks like a perfect victim for Chromie.

*yap, yap, yap*
I'm gonna be the best Gul'Dan player that has ever wielded a mouse. alow me to demonstrate the skill of shao lin. the special technique of Gul'Dan!

The point still stands, buddy.
Sucks that you fail to see the point (not that I'm surprised, though).

The funny thing is I don't have to point out how ridiculously wrong what you just said was. You made yourself lose all credibility on your own. Bravo.

You may be a bit confused as well. You see, this is a video game. The purpose of a video game is to have fun while playing it.

Edit: And you're not really arguing anything for that matter. You said he was "crap" and the reason you gave was that you weren't interested in him due to his playstyle. Or at least, your personal perception of his playstyle. You not being interested is not something that you can use to argue against him being fun, or even to make a statement about his quality because it is unrelated. I may not be interested in a hero, but others very well could be an enjoy playing him or her because it is fun. That doesn't mean that I can say he or she is "crap."

Ah, I wasn't going to point out the reasons why you were so wrong, but I guess I did anyway. Oh, well.

Keep yapping all you want, but you want change the fact that he is yet another mage assassin and a total fail to represent Gul'Dan for what he is.
But then agian, I've seen your kind before, and there is no reasoning with you - you just boild things down 'well, if a lot of people like it, then it's fine, hurrr, durrr'.


Okay. What is the proper representation of Gul'dan to you?

Gonna guess he thinks the archtype of all warlocks should have been forced into a support role because that is the cool thing to think, from what I have seen.
Yep, warlocks have always been DPS as their one and single purpose, this guy probably thinks it should be a support because of the trend of "Oh gul'dan offered the blood of mannoroth but didnt ever do any actual fighting blah blah"

Oh, you mean that game that basically ripped off Warcraft?
Obviously, a lot of people here have never played World of Warcraft. Gul'Dan plays a lot like a Warlock from WoW.

On a side note, WoW > All of Blizzard games
