That explains it.

They also made a bunch of skins that were just slight alterations of heroes' base models. For example: Chen / Brewmaster Chen, Kharazim / Berserker Kharazim, and Sylvanas / Warchief Sylvanas.

Basically, with the new progression and cosmetic system in 2.0 they had the opportunity to start putting out a lot more skins that are similar to pre-existing ones; prior to 2.0, every skin (aside from the base and Master ones) had to be specifically purchased with real money, either by itself or as part of a bundle, and back in those days, I doubt many people would have bothered to spend money just to get a Chen skin where the only noticeable difference is that he wears his hat on his head instead of on his back. To be clear, I don't personally dislike this; I rather like Berserker Kharazim, for instance.

Of course, something that I intensely dislike is that with each tint now being considered a separate skin they've also started crapping out dozens of new tints on old skins every single post-2.0 content patch, but that's a different discussion (and one could argue that it was inevitable as soon as Blizzard announced the skin changes in 2.0).

Since no one has posted it yet:



The HGC stream is currently live. Looks like the new stuff, whatever it is, will be announced after the current series is done.

Ana will be a ranged Support based around skillshots. No information on Junkrat yet.

Edit: New skins, mounts, sprays, banners, and portraits can be seen in this Inven Global article.

https://www.invenglobal.com/articles...w-battleground

Notable things that weren't in the trailers or teasers include Shrike Ana, Destroyer D.Va (nice meme, Blizzard), Celestial Raptor, Invisible Horse, and a bunch of Pachimari emojis, sprays, and portraits to go with the event.

Edit 2: PTR will be up on Monday.

Looks like Ana's R2 will be a skillshot with hinterlands blast range that either does a lot of damage or healing to the first person it hits. Everything else will just be a copypaste of her OW kit like the rest of them.

I'm really kind of hoping they make Junkrat play similar to Ziggs, and if they do I'll be spending a lot of time on him even though I barely play him in OW.

For some reason this went up on Facebook around 8 hours before it became available on YouTube. Hopefully that doesn't became a trend.

Anyway, Blizzard is trolling us again with that end part of Genji and D.Va the Destroyer killing Diablo (on Hanamura, no less).

According to this leak, which has been completely accurate so far except for the order, we'll get Alexstrasza and a StarCraft firebat this year.

This backs up the Alexstrasza prediction and apparently also confirms that Hanzo is in development.

Personally, I'm expecting and/or hoping for a double hero reveal of Alexstrasza and firebat.

It should work to just click the spoiler-covered area of the text to make it visible. This only works for the post itself; the spoiler-covered title has to be hovered over.

thats the thing, I know hovering over it shows whats there but the link you posted for the leak has no list or anything. The spoiler tag just says [Spoilers here!](#s) Upcoming List of Heroes. Leaked from in-person source.
Theres no list of heroes or anything like that, I dont see a source, so I dont know how I am supposed to see a list of heroes with no list there unless im missing an actual link to click.
Anyways, with me taking a few weeks off of raiding in WoW its nice getting to play a lot more of HotS and OW. Im really looking forward to Junkrat. Im still getting used to the view of Heroes. Ive been playing for a while but kinda threw it aside for Legion and OW so im getting reacclimated to it. Love the new map as well.

Weird. It shows up fine for me.

Looks like I got my wish on him playing similar to Ziggs. Definitely going to spend a lot of time on him.

Apparently the Chinese version of the official website accidentally leaked the two BlizzCon heroes.

Spoilers, obviously.

https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthe...mments/7agwhf/

(Direct and very spoilery image link in case the Reddit text doesn't show up properly: https://i.imgur.com/0mvEnAo.jpg)

I don't think anyone who has been reading past leaks will be surprised by this.

Alexstrasza and Hanzo confirmed.


Alexstrasza is a ranged Support who can transform into a dragon and empower her abilities using her trait.
http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/heroes/alexstrasza/

Hanzo is a high-damage ranged Assassin.
http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/heroes/hanzo/

They'll be accompanied by a "Dragons of the Nexus" event, starting November 14, in which you get special dragon-themed portraits from playing games in Versus AI, Quick Match, Ranked, or Unranked.
http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/game/...s-of-the-nexus

I can't get over that Alexstrasza's face looks a bit... odd in both the cinematic and on her hero model.

Anyway, there's also going to be a major gameplay update in 2018 and will go up on the PTR for an extended testing period starting on November 20. Features include:
  • Zoomed out camera
  • Stealth will be much easier to spot, and Keeps and Forts will reveal Stealth; to compensate, there'll be significant buffs to Nova, Samuro, Valeera, and Zeratul
  • Towers will no longer have Ammunition (or, in other words, unlimited Ammunition)
  • There'll no longer be standalone Towers near Keeps or Forts, only on gates
  • Allied Regeneration globes will change to neutral globes after 4 seconds, allowing them to be picked up by both teams; after another 4 seconds, they'll despawn
  • The first objectives on each battleground will be standardized to spawning 1:30 or 3:00 minutes into the game (depending on Battleground), both with a 30-second warning
  • Various updates to mercenaries
  • In-game voice chat
  • Refined matchmaking based on players' individual performances in each match rather than just looking at victories and losses

EDIT: http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/blog/21182206/
TL;DR: Starting with Alexstrasza, future Hero launch skins won't drop from Loot Chests and cannot be forged with Shards, and can instead only be purchasable with gems.

As can probably be expected, this has caused somewhat of a giant shitstorm on Reddit.

I recently got back into HOTS and hot damn, Muradin is hard to take down. I told my husband about how good of a tank he is, and he's interested in it once he gets an upgraded machine (currently running on an old laptop that lags like crazy).

It'll be fun to play matches with him.
