What's your battlenet ID razorclaw? An emu and I play hots fairly regularly, and there is also a krazy and zilla most of the time, and lately there are only guest appearances of mesk and hks

Blizzard is finally implementing the arena gamemode they had revealed a year ago. It's supposed to be like the hearthstone or overweight weekly brawls, although I'm not sure yet whether in hots there will be weekly brawls or just random gamemodes. The weekly shit is retarded since if you want to play a specific gamemode you can't unless its that weeks brawl, so I'm hoping its just a group of different gamemodes that you can play at any time.

Blizzard is all about weekly events. I would be surprised if there wasn't a group of rotations among silly game modes.

Zarya And The Pocket Full of Utility Creep

This is why I get tired of this game.

Yeah, hots has been getting kinda boring for me and zarya is just too fucking frustrating to play against seeing how her shields purge shit.

When the arena comes out, I will probably be playing that almost exclusively

I really can understand the toxicity of the heroes and league communities with how monumentally frustrating it is to play a game so completely overloaded with crowd control, performance issues, and FOTM releases/reworks. Every time I try to get back into it I am met with the exact same bullshit I've always been up against - new heroes that are overtooled to hell, reworks and dev pets that are ridiculously strong, and heroes I once liked that had all their utility removed because they "had too much" (Jaina and bolt of the storm). The two new maps are a bloody disaster and take all the bad elements out of towers/immortals and amplify them ten fold.

It is really not hard to balance a game. They simply choose not to, and that simply makes it unfun.

The whole purpose of mobas is to retain player interest long-term, and while I don't know the stats around hots I know league has more players than ever before which means it's increasing. Whatever they're doing is effective for their demographic, which is pretty much all they care about (and realistically, american businesses won't care about anything else, forget about chinese businesses). Most you can do is try to communicate to the developers directly and hope they can override the marketing/moneymaking staff to make changes that don't fit the narrative of flavour of the month/player interest.

Blizzard is retarded, they removed the relentless talents that reduced how much cc would effect you, then they add a hero that purges cc from you and can get slow

The metal sheathing sound when he doesn't use a sheath is great. Almost as great as the Demon Hunter crossbow muzzle flashes.

That's the sound of his sword scraping against his mighty magic magnetic belt! And the notch of the Demon Hunter's bolts are actually tiny firecracker boosters that ignite when passing over the flint installed at the end of the flight groove! Obviously! =oP

MORE SHIT

The bladestorm animation looks retardedly bad, and the illusion master ult looks amazing for the sass potential, even though most people are gonna fail at sassing with it. Oh hey, you can also break out of and stealth slows and roots, as well as ignore body blocking.
His chin cloth scarf thing on his master skin doesn't animate.
HELLblade skin, Chinese demonic themed

I don't like the valla skin's ability animation changes

CYBERHAWK KAEL'THAS. Because blizzard is trying to make skins that look good. His balls look nice, though.

XUL OBLIGATORY HALLOWEEN PUMPKIN SKIN!! I like the ability visual changes of this one, but the skin itself doesn't look very good.

HELLboar mount. Chinese demons lol

And they are running out of mount ideas, so they just added an I-pad

Apparently Cyberhawk is a character from Rock N Roll Racing.
