Heroes of the Storm's Dehaka feels undertuned but fun

Heroes of the Storm has added the Zerg Warrior Dehaka today, and even though he's enjoyable, I doubt he'll shake up the meta much. Dehaka's kit is enticing. His Q can pull enemies like a more effective Stitches hook; his E burrows to avoid ...

 
Necromancer
Blizzard finally did it -- it put my favorite Diablo class into Heroes of the Storm with Xul, the Necromancer. While he sadly doesn't sport the Blood Golem, he has just about everything else from Diablo II, and from an aesthetic standpoint, his kit is glorious. I'm sort of concerned about where he fits into most casual team compositions, but in the meantime, he's fun to play.   read

Heroes of the Storm
The last two characters in Heroes of the Storm have ended up with rather disappointing when it comes to rankings. After two weeks, Greymane is the fourth worst hero in terms of win-rate, and Lunara is the fifth worst. That's ...   read

Heroes of the Storm
Greymane has hit Heroes of the Storm today, entering the arena as the only Worgen character -- the werewolf-like race of Warcraft fame. After an afternoon of giving him a shot though, I'm not super jazzed about fitting him into my normal rotation.   read

Heroes of the Storm
Lunara arrived in Heroes of the Storm this week, and I boosted her up to level 5 in one night alone -- she's that fun to play. As an assassin she's capable of tons of damage (I'm usually top Hero Damage in unranked play)...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Cho'gall is freaking weird, but feels balanced

Earlier this month, Blizzard announced a two-player hero in the form of Cho'gall for Heroes of the Storm. In essence, the primary player would control movement and their own set of abilities with Cho, and another would take care of Gall, wh...

 
League of Legends
It's getting to the point where I'm starting to get lost when selecting a Champion in League of Legends. Sure, the newest kid on the block, Kindred, has a giant floating mask for an icon and the list is in alphabetical order,...   read

I'm not sold on Heroes of the Storm's Artanis yet

Heroes of the Storm's Artanis isn't dropping officially until October 27, but those of you who pre-ordered Legacy of the Void can play him now, as part of an early access program. While Artanis might be a formidable foe within the conf...

Heroes of the Storm's Medic is the dedicated healer we needed

Kharazim is probably my favorite character in Heroes of the Storm at the moment, but it's about time that we got the StarCraft healer we've always wanted with Lt. Morales, the Medic. With a number of supports essentially func...

Quick thoughts on Heroes of the Storm's Rexxar

Heroes of the Storm is stepping away from the Diablo event as of today, and is focusing more on Warcraft and Starcraft in the coming months. The Treasure Goblins are out, and Rexxar, the half-orc half-ogre is in, with his par...

Quick thoughts on Heroes of the Storm's Monk and new Infernal Shrines level

Blizzard has unleashed a host of new changes onto the public test realm (PTR) for Heroes of the Storm, including a new character (Kharazim the Monk) and a new map (Infernal Shrines). I had a chance to take them both for a spin, and although...

 
Heroes of the Storm
Today, Blizzard dropped Leoric the Skeleton King, the newest addition to Heroes of the Storm. He's a melee Warrior with one very intriguing trait, and has a heavy amount of lore to draw upon from the Diablo series. In short, he's a perfect candidate for the game, and Blizzard has been on a roll since debuting Kael'Thas, Johanna, and Butcher respectively.   read

League of Legends
Despite its tenacity in the past, Riot Games hasn't added a lot of Champions to League of Legends' roster this year. You have Bard in March, Ekko in June, and now, Tahm Kench this month -- that's it. Having said all that, all three have been great additions overall, and the fishy Kench is no exception.   read

Heroes of the Storm
Heroes of the Storm has just kicked off its Eternal Conflict event, which will bring more Diablo-related content into the game over the course of the next few months. Characters, mounts, and a new level are a part of the cele...   read

League impressions
It's been an eventful past six months for League of Legends. While I've been covering new Champions since 2013, I slipped a bit since Gnar late in 2014, as a few other major MMOs as well as fellow MOBA Heroes of the...   read

LoL champion hands-on
I've been covering every new League of Legends champion for over a year now, but ever since Braum dropped, I haven't had the chance to really get in and play as many ranked games as I would have liked due to a few other ...   read

Impressions: League of Legends: Vel Koz

Riot keeps introducing new League of Legends champions, and we keep trying them out. The newest addition to the Summoner's Rift is Vel'Koz -- The Eye of the Void. He's a bit out of place in many ways, with an aesthetic design that...

Samurais -- am I right? In the world of gaming, the "ronin/wandering samurai" trope is one of the most overused character designs I can think of, especially in the early 2000s, with the host of samurai-centric games on the original PlayStat...

With the League of Legends 2013 Championship out of the way, it's time to get back to the grindstone and start testing out some new characters. The first post-Finals addition is Jinx, the "Loose Cannon," and she's...interesting, to say the ...
