Heroes of the Storm thread
« on: March 18, 2015, 01:23:22 pm »
Okay, figured I'd bump this into its own thread because people seem to be playing it and enjoying it. We plan to play it as a group this friday night, should be fun. I have a few more beta keys if anybody needs them :tup:

We can keep a list of people playing and their tags in the first post

DrWill - drwill439#1155
Forge Digger - ForgeDigger#1983
Skizzz - FYGP#1792
Radical Fuzz - Gravetitan#1244
JasonC - mistergeJJ#1592

I don't get the garden map.  Collect seeds, what?  The other ones make sense to me, but for whatever reason, I can't figure out what's going on in that map.

So, when "night falls" it spawns some jungle creeps in between the top and middle, and middle and bottom lanes, and all the merc camps are removed. Theres 2 small groups of plants, and 1 big golem thing. You kill those things, and they drop seeds. When all the seeds are collected, you go back to day phase (and merc camps come back).

If your team has 100 seeds, it spawns a big golem in your base; you then have 60 seconds to have somebody click on it to control it. Its really good at pushing lanes, because it has a plant thing that aoe disables all buildings.

Ohhh.  Well, needless to say, my friends and I lost that game lol.

Is there a way to remap the buttons?  I'm sure there is, I just honestly haven't looked yet.  If there is, can I remap the q/w/e/r/a/ to the numpad keys?

Big patch today; a lot of nerfs/rebalances. Sorry @RadicalFuzz but Uther got nerfed somewhat. He doesnt have as huge of an AOE on his level 20 talented ultimate now, lol. Lost some of his other talent choices, and he cant daamge while dead, but he can heal better while dead. he got a new talent that activates, and makes the next spell cost less and 10 second less cool down, which means you can double stun to secure that kill.

He'll still be a beast I think.

Tempted to buy Sylvanas outright

Does it happen when a match starts?

theres a bug some people have, where when Sylvanas uses her W ability for the first time, it freezes up temporarily. Not sure if that's what you're seeing. Doesn't happen on my end.

There were similar threads, something about when the game tries to load the various modes when you hit "Play" it also checks for some kind of update and says "Downloading". Those two things in conjunction don't work with some setups, as far as I can tell, and it locks everything up and warrants a hard reset.

Don't feel pressured to do it. I have that same thing going with dota, having been qualified for ranked matches since mid february. I still have yet to play a ranked game because I don't know the game as well as I should.

So yeah, take your time. It'll always be there.

The other day I was playing as Valla, the Demon Hunter, and was the first to arrive at a Boss Camp.  I started with Strafe, and all the shots missed.  Apparently, you have to attack the boss first to agro it...otherwise it just stays there sleeping...and Strafe didn't count as an attack wtf.  Dunno if this is a bug or not.

I tried playing as Diablo last night.  I feel like he is so weak at low level as a melee character and really strong towards end-game ... I feel like the strategy to play as him is to gather 150 souls by killing minions before going in like a boss.

Last week (or two weeks ago?) I played as Raynor mostly.  His OP skill is being able to "recruit" the camps easily.  It was too good.

Its just dumb; the only reason I should be nervous is for ruining the game for the rest of my team; but I don't really give a fuck about them so why should I care? lol And yet, that ranked play nervous gets me. Oddly, its only in team based games and RTS games; I never care about hitting ranked play on a fighting game, for instance.

The other day I was playing as Valla, the Demon Hunter, and was the first to arrive at a Boss Camp.  I started with Strafe, and all the shots missed.  Apparently, you have to attack the boss first to agro it...otherwise it just stays there sleeping...and Strafe didn't count as an attack wtf.  Dunno if this is a bug or not.

Last week (or two weeks ago?) I played as Raynor mostly.  His OP skill is being able to "recruit" the camps easily.  It was too good.

fun Fact, Raynor has the lowest win rate of all the heroes and is woefully underpowered. 2 of his talents are currently bugged and don't even work properly! Bribe is only good on raynor because the rest of his skills suck in comparison haha. Gazlowe can solo any merc camp from like level 7 (and even earlier for ogres) and even solo the boss with the right talents; Sylvanas can perma lock down merc camps easily. Raynor can... skill shot knock back I guess? lol

The strafe thing might be a bug, or it might just be there so you don't accidently aggro mercs when you don't mean to. Ulting on a boss is kind of bad either way though haha.

I dont have much experience with Diablo, my goto tank is Stitches. But yesterday, I got wrecked by a Trande/Diablo combo. Diablo would slam, and he'd slam me right into Tyrandes stun arrow, and the nafter that diablo would knock me back. A huge lockdown, and it really messed me up. But yeah, his big thing is being able to die and respawn instantly. Honestly I'd like it better if he respawned in place sometimes.

Ouch that sounded like it was rough.  Especially frustrating when your character gets repositioned.  Diablo on defense is good though, Slam (is that the one where he throws you onto the other side of him?) into tower range boom boom boom!

I think Bribe is better on some maps than others. On the Mines map, there isn't a jungle 70% of the time, and there are only weak monsters there, so you don't get much benefit. On the Pirates map, it pops the treasure chest in one go. That makes things absolutely bonkers. If it's contested just pop it, grab most of the coins, and then head to the other chest to help your team secure that one. If you got all 10 coins, you can just turn them in right there to put the other team at an instant disadvantage. Even if it's not contested it saves what feels like 15/20 seconds of auto-attacking, so you can go back to soaking XP, pushing, grouping, whatever you want.

Yeah, Pirates is the one map I could see it being good. All maps have mercs though; haunted mines has 2x seige and 1x bruisers. I could see it being good if, while everyone goes mines, you steal the ogres on their side of the map then head into the mines a bit late.

Honestly, Im not sure what is better for the talent on that level anyway; probably Seasoned Marksman, but all 4 seem viable at some level

Tychus: This guy wasn't intuitive to use at first.  But I figured this out:

When you are chasing them, do the dash so your gun is spinning and you get max DPS, then lob the bomb ahead of them to knock them back, keeping them in your gun range.  Other than that, he's not very versatile lol.  His ult that creates a standalone laser gun - it sucks that it dies if you die, but I guess that's fair.  Do you have to be in visible range for it to work though?  Might be good just to lay it down before hearthstoning.

Odin is rally so much better anyway; even post nerf I think its better, but both are viable. I'd take laser on maps like Blackhearts or Spider Queen or Cursed Hollow where you want to zone out an area and they can't afford to wait out the timer; imagine pre nerf when going into Odin gave you a second health bar and it was like a get out of jail free card!

Im not sure what the range on it is actually like, honestly, I have very little experience playing with tychus

Hmm I thought Odin was terrible lol.  It takes soooo long to get into it, and then you are really slow once you are in it.  Maybe I just didn't know what I was doing.  Pre-nerf sounds ridiculous though, with it being an extra life bar lol

It used to be a safe escape/way to turn around a gank, like an "Oh shit button"

Now you just pop it before heading into a group fight. It does crazy damage, so instead of "Lets use the turret to control this area" its "lets pop this massive nuke firing thing to control this area"

Oddly though, his ult selection rate is fairly balanced; in top level play, odin is picked 57% of the time (with a 54% win rate) and Drill is picked 43% (with a 52 % win rate). Across all skill levels, its basically 50/50 split with drill getting more win % by like 1%

https://www.hotslogs.com/Sitewide/HeroDetails?Hero=Tychus

So both are basically equally viable, which is nice, because its not really like that on other heroes (cough Zeratul cough 87% void prison cough Sylvannas cough 99% wailing arrow cough)

Seems like the healing talents are very popular!  I don't even consider those lol.

I could see using Odin or Drill depending on who your teammates are and if the support buffs given Odin that extra kick he needs (e.g. Diablo shields).
