D. Va slots nicely into a MOBA, but she needs a bit more polish

Overwatch's increasing presence in Heroes of the Storm has been met with jubilation and tepidness alike. Personally I love that the series is doing well enough to warrant frequent crossovers, and the characters are interesting enough to jus...   read

League of Legends' Xayah and Rakan are an unconventional duo

In an interesting turn, Riot Games has released two heroes at once this week in League of Legends, and they're intrinsically connected. Billed as "birds of a feather," Xayah and Rakan are lovers, and sport several promotions, like the abili...   read

Overwatch's Genji and Hanamura are coming to Heroes of the Storm

After the release of two other non-Warcraft heroes, we're getting yet another one with Overwatch's Genji -- the fourth Overwatch character to hit Heroes of the Storm after Tracer, Zarya, and Lucio. I had a chance to test...   read

Heroes of the Storm is finally getting its Diablo 2 Amazon in Cassia

For months, Heroes of the Storm players have been clamoring for more Diablo love. After a brief event in 2015, we've only gotten a few representatives from the Diablo universe, and most of the existing cast is from the third itera...   read

Probius is another slam dunk character for Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm is known for weird characters. It has Abathur, a hero that touts a playstyle not typically found in the MOBA genre, among other oddballs that bend the rules in interesting ways. While the builder concept isn't really new...   read

How does Lucio's Overwatch kit transfer to Heroes of the Storm?

It's my dream to one day see the entire cast of Overwatch present in Heroes of the Storm. Don't get me wrong, there needs to be a lot more love sooner than later for franchises like Diablo (I'm looking at you Mephisto) and Starcra...   read

Valeera's entry into Heroes of the Storm makes for one too many stealth characters

While Blizzard was initially well-tempered in its ability to release multiple roles, they've been in a routine as of late with Heroes of the Storm. The last four characters have not only been from the Warcraft universe, but they've also bee...   read

Vengeance for Zul'jin? He doesn't need it in Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm had a pretty full year, and Blizzard is kicking off the New Year right with yet another character -- the troll Zul'jin. As the first troll in the Nexus he has some big shoes to fill, and even though he's yet another...   read

Catching up with Camille and Ivern, the two latest League of Legends Champions

In my attempts to keep up to date weekly with Heroes of the Storm's meta and getting back up to speed with Dota 2's recent talent overhaul, it's been tough to stay on top of League of Legends, but I still make time for all three. Each game ...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Varian feels underwhelming, and that's the point

When Varian Wrynn, former King of Stormwind hits the Heroes of the Storm battlefield, he'll bring a whole new concept into the game -- the multi-class character. Varian is a tank at heart, built with the principles of a World of Warcra...   read

I have concerns about Heroes of the Storm's Ragnaros, but he's fun as hell

The newly announced Varian and Ragnaros were both available to play at BlizzCon for Heroes of the Storm, but there was one clear winner. Yep, the Firelord wins out, even if I think he's a bit too overpowered for his own good and will need s...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Samuro is a gleefully deceptive assassin

It's about time the Blademaster hit Heroes of the Storm. As one of the first heroes that many Warcraft III players experienced (the Orcs kicked off the campaign), he's a natural fit. That goes for his aesthetic, combat style, and place...   read

Overwatch's Zarya is going to make a splash in Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm is an All-Star meetup of Blizzard characters from just about every moment in the company's over 20+ year history. I mean, it literally was called "Blizzard All-Stars" at one point, making its journey from a StarCraft mod...   read

Braxis Holdout is a good stand-in for Haunted Mines in Heroes of the Storm

I really miss Haunted Mines in Heroes of the Storm, but it doesn't look like it'll be coming back anytime soon. As one of the premiere two-lane maps it was a joy to play, but the addition of Braxis Holdout (currently for testing in PTR) mak...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Alarak is a straightforward assassin with a cool personality

A powerful assassin with a skill-based kit and a Cthulu-themed skin, voiced by John de Lancie? Say no more, Blizzard!   read

Kled is the silliest League of Legends character since Fizz

I was just talking to community member Stormworm this week about how hard it is to keep up with metas in multiple MOBAs or MMOs. Since you often have to "slot" yourself into a role on the fly (read: you can't just auto-lock Bastion ins...   read

League of Legends champion roundup: Illaoi, Jhin, Aurelion, Taliyah

I've been spending most of my free MOBA time playing Heroes of the Storm. It's such a huge time commitment keeping up with just one meta, that spreading my attention across multiple games (in a competitive way at least) can feel insurmounta...   read

Auriel

I think it will take people a while to figure out Auriel in Heroes of the Storm

Having first looked at her kit, Auriel really spoke to me. She has a straight-up resurrection spell -- something no other support in the game sports. She also has a very cool mechanic that sort of "brands" another player, allowing her to sa...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Gul'dan is the ultimate risk-reward assassin

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 launche...   read

Medivh is one tricky asshole in Heroes of the Storm

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 e...   read

Chromie is the glass cannon I never knew I wanted

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, and Li-Ming i...   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

The Necromancer Xul nicely fills a niche, but this burst meta is brutal

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 standp...   read

Li-Ming is a powerhouse in 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 not to say they...   read

I'm undecided when it comes to Greymane

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...   read
