Agreed, though I still think we need more SC and Diablo first.

Off the top of my head, here's Heroes that we really should have by now:

StarCraft
Arcturus Mengsk - Really no excuse, he's an iconic character and has Specialist written all over him. I'd say they could go with either the older Emperor Mengsk (Dominion themed) or the younger Sons of Korhal version (Rebel themed) but Emperor would be my preference.
Valerian Mengsk - More debateble, but still a solid choice, I mean if Tychus is in, no reason V shouldn't be.
Matt Horner - See above
Fenix - It's shameful he's not been added before Artanis and Alarak.
SCV - Comeon, this guy is just crying out to be added. Great voiceovers, would look great in HD with the HOTS' touch, and could be a Multi-Class Specialist/Support or just a full Specialist focusing on tower/keep interactions, both offense-based and defense-based, with talents pushing you towards one or another more strongly.

Diablo
Mephisto - Iconic, tons of options for his Role and Kit.
Baal - See above
Deckard Cain - One of the flagship characters of the series, much like Mengsk, has Specialist written all over him.
Imperius - Would be high on my list of preferences, great design and voice, another Multi-Class Warrior/Sin like Varian I feel, maybe one with more focus on tanking than Varian.
Malthael - Even though other Heroes have much of what he'd have, I still think they could differentiate him enough.

There's more I could add but those are the ones that immediately jump out at me as either should be in already, or certainly upcoming, certainly before fucking OverWatch Heroes.

Im with you on nearly all of these, especially SCV. I mean come on you put in Sgt Hammer.
Could throw Isha in the list as well. Zoltun Kulle and Belial also

Now that I got a bit more time:

Lucio makes 3 already.

Fuck off.
Well, as everything in game development is set in stone, amiright?

Let's be honest: when that statement was made, Overwatch wasn't even out, but then it became a HUGE success, so is it really surprising that they changed their mind on that? Sure, I'd love to see finally more Starcraft and Diablo characters or even something from the Classic games, but 3 heroes aren't that much and they weren't released one after another.

On the other hand, we did get two heroes in january alone (from what I know, that's rather unusual?) and it hasn't been a long time since the last in-dev video. Basically, it seems like this in-dev video was split over several weeks instead of being one-long video.

Eh. Simple abilities to help let players focus on maximizing his mobility isn't a bad thing. Wall running makes him collision immune so he should be able to get in (and out) of tight situations when need be.

How to feel?

A mixture of "Oh cool, Blizzard are having really weird new ideas!" and "Are you fucking trolling us there are so many other characters people want and you're going for a fucking no-name something no-one gives a shit about?"

I like the new ideas, we'll probably get Kel'thuzad and others over time when they're ready to do events around them and whatnot.

Hah, they made it the probe from the Aiur cinematic.

HotS isn't just about famous Blizzard characters, it's also about iconic RTS units and archetypes. Dryads, siege tanks, murlocs and probes are as recognisable as various named heroes... and way more recognisable than Lucio for old school players, derp. So it's fine. It' could've been a Fenix reskin, for Adun's sake.

Still need more mechs though.

Just look for a group there are plenty of people doing that. Join the grp add a friend and then just run AI games and you can bang them out in about 7-10min each game, as long as people arent actually new. Most games I had 4-5 minutes each

Sweet, I'd been worried they wouldn't add her after the Nova-skin.
