Probably Thursday or Friday, judging by past Twitter teasers and hero reveal/release cycles.

Mal'Ganis is known for trolling Arthas, and he's a Hearthstone card. Tich just died to Illidan, Varimathras is fair, and I still don't know what Balnazzar did.

Tichondrius was a big deal in his time. It's not his fault those stupid fucking mortals cheated.

Mal'ganis would be the most iconic imo even if he isn't the most powerful of them. He's the very first one that people saw in the RTS and the first impression of something is the most memorable like when he called Arthas to come to Northrend after the Culling of Stratholme.

Tichondrius to me is just a big Worf. Gets called the lord of the Nathrezim to just make it a bigger deal when someone slaps him around silly. He gets killed by Huln. Then by Illidan. Then by Players.

Mal'Ganis died like a chump to Arthas in the first campaign arch. Tichondrius was the mastermind behind the dreadlords. Balnazzar infiltrated the Scarlet Crusade and has been the thorn in the side of the Argent Dawn, Argent Crusade, etc.

As opposed to how many times that Mal'Ganis gets slapped around and killed?

Here's a supposed new leak of the next four upcoming heroes. Potential spoilers, obviously.
https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthe...g_heroes_list/

I don't really know what to think about this one, to be honest. It looks detailed enough to make me think it could be real, but I'm not sure if some of the abilities are plausible or not.

I suppose we'll have found out if the first part of it is accurate or not by this time next week.

That proposed Maiev trait seems TREMENDOUSLY overpowered

Looks like the thread got deleted. Someone quoted the entire thing on this forum, though.

Incoming High Priestess Maiev skin to go along with Tyrande's Warden skin.

... Man, I would love a WoW that had Maiev and Illidan squabbling at each other about how best to lead their people. Illidan remaining a jerk, of course, but still with good intentions, and Maiev being more militant in her duties as high priestess.

Fuck, Heroes has made me even like Malfurion with his gothic Christmas skin.

So much potential in the Nexus, I tell you!

Hero spotlight on January 26th after the first match of HGC EU, according to the launcher.

EDIT: And yes, I'll be extremely disappointed if she doesn't have a High Priestess skin to complete the "alternate night elf history" set.

I want a Felsworn Maiev/Cordana skin. (Although I still dislike what happened to her and how little Khadgar seems to have cared for her.)

Honestly surprised it is Maiev since her original W3 toolkit was taken but I'm glad its her. Hope her VA didn't strain herself too much after her surgery a year ago.

Twice slapped around with only one ending in death. A lot better than three times killed

"Okay, So the matches are gonna start around 5ish, so I'm guessing maybe 20 past 5?"

"Okay, these matches take ages, but I can wait until quarter-to ish"

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT'S BEST OF 5 AND IT TAKES ABOUT 45 MINUTES FOR EACH GAME TO GO THROUGH"

At least it's less than 5 mins now for the spotlight.

First talent anounced: Naisha's memento, allows for a cleave attack *Cough* Grade A Lesbo *Cough*.

Also Shadow orb based level 20 talents

Also: Looks good to combo with Gazlowe... I like Gazlowe. This'll be awesome.

I don't think the skin looks that bad, actually (I don't really like her base model, though), but yeah, it's not what I was hoping for.

EDIT: Looks like we'll be getting Maiev and the Lunar Festival at the same time:
https://us.battle.net/heroes/en/blog...2018-1-29-2018
https://eu.battle.net/heroes/en/game...-festival-2018

The Lunar Festival this year will last from the week of February 6 - March 5.

New epic skins for Kael'thas and Sylvanas and rare skins for Cassia and Zul'jin. Lunar Guardian (based on Chinese guardian lion) and Lunar Skyrocket mounts + the usual portraits, sprays, and event quest. Also a Lunar Rocket Racing brawl (essentially kart racing).

https://gfycat.com/MellowDefinitiveBeetle lvl 1,4,7 talents

https://gfycat.com/ShadowyContentEastsiberianlaika level 13,17,20 talents

Looks like she's meant to be pretty tanky. Note that, according to the website, her trait gives her 15 extra armour.

As a LoL player, wtf do I do in this game? I've been playing Jaina, but was suggested to try other people. Dehaka is kinda cool.

You play the objectives.

What League heroes are you good at? There may be rough equivalents in Heroes!

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:

2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.
