Heroes of the Storm
  Watch Video Blizzard doesn't need an excuse to bring another Warcraft hero into the fray. Heck, it's the flagship franchise for the publisher -- World of Warcraft is still going strong, Hearthstone is Warcraft-tinted, and it just launched a major film for it. So the addition of Gul'dan in Heroes of the Storm is no surprise, and he's pretty true to his expected playstyle.   read

 
Medivh
  Watch Video Very few characters come into Heroes of the Storm and severely shake up the meta. Sure, you have powerhouses like Li Ming and Tracer that get banned often near their launch, but it's rare to see a support or otherwise entirely unique role enter the Nexus that we haven't seen before. Enter Medivh, one of the most troll-like additions since Heroes launched just over a year ago.   read

  Watch Video Heroes of the Storm is filled to the brim with casters. Kael'thas, following a series of nerfs, has once again risen to prominence due to a recent buff, Nazeebo continues his reign near the top of the winrate charts...   read

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 ...   read

 
 



Necromancer
  Watch Video 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
  Watch Video 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
  Watch Video 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
  Watch Video 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

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...   read

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...   read

 
 
Heroes of the Storm
  Watch Video 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
  Watch Video 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
