Chen PTR

Enhanced Chen, PTR client

Welcome the better Brewmaster

Stormstout hots

New, enhanced Chen is available at the PTR. He became stronger, much fatter and still can destroy Forts better than specialists, due to his ability to tank towers while drinking his brew. But will these changes go on Live servers?

Level 1

At the first level, we suggested to choose one option of basics Chens abilities. Each of these options is needed in different situations.

Grounding brew

We need protection from the Zagara, Jaina or any other burst? Grounding brew now offers 30% protection from spells instead of 25%.

Accumulation Flame

Need a waveclear at the Sanctuary or Braxis? Accumulation Flame allows to increase the power of fire, and upon completion of the quest Chen will start to get resistance for each of the affected hero.

Freshest ingredients

Almost the same as the Regeneration Master, only this time upon completion the quest, your shield strength will be 50% of obtained during drinking.

Elusive Brawler

By activating this ability, Chen will start avoid all the auto attacks of the enemy within 2 seconds.

Stormstout hots

Level 4

Deadly Strike

Now it no longer requires the brew and deals 100% more damage if you have shield on you. This is twice better than it was before! Now you can Crit someone in the face, then start drinking and after that crit again. The lack of cost of this spell will synergy perfectly with  Levels 7 ability Brewmasters Harmony.

Rising of fire

They just increase damage from this ability from 30 to 50, and this will give a huge advantage in team fights where every amount of damage can be lethal.

Level 7

Refreshing Elixir

This is a special version of the Empowered Healing accessible only by Chen. Bonus heal can be increased to 60% if you receive healing while drinking. Now, no one can kill a panda if he drink under Lt. Morales healing ray.

Bolder Flavor

Now our brew will momently apply a shield on us, that will absorb 697 damage and lasts only 1 second. Super usefull skill in team fight, will allow us to absorb even more damage then before!

Chen PTR

Level 13

Withering Flames

Reduces magic damage done by your enemies by 25% for 3 seconds. It looks like a small spell shield that will protect the rest of my team, not just me. Wait, but it is generally legitimate?

Pressure Point

Vulnerable point received an upgrade. What upgrade? Now, you can take it by 3 level earlier! Now the target is slowed down by 40% if you just use a skill, and by 80% if you use it on the targets that drenched with your brew.

Level 16

Flying Leap

Flying leap increases the range of the attack by 20%, which will be usefull in the game against range heroes, also these 20% may be salutary in the escape.

Another Round

Another Round reduces the cooldown of your abilities for 3 seconds after using Barrel Strike. Also (probably a bug) your barrel becomes huge. You can hit the entire enemy team immediately.

Level 20

Untapped Potential

Now it will give an additional speed and damage reduce to your barrel, and now you can roll under towers. Cool.

Elemental Conduit

Increase health pool of your spirits by 100%, and they will have additional abilities. Storm makes you unstopable, Earth get faster recharge of Leap, and Fire starts to strike faster.

Purifying Brew

Make Chen an unstopable and reduce cc time of next spell by 75% and refresh your shield recharge immediately.

Stormstout Secret Recipe

Now you will heal yourself by 1.5% of your max health with every strike.

Malfurion healer

Support issue

Why Blizzard never reduce amount of heal in HotS?

LiLi healer

Many people believe that until the healers do so large values of healing in Heroes of the Storm, the role of support will never get a large number of skills that are able to turn the game and allow players of this role to shine in a new light. This has caused “a certain number” of players start to avoid positions of healer. So why Blizzard does not want to cut healing and compensate that by giving to the supporters some really important spells?

Why this game have so much healing?

Morales Healer

To answer this question we need to ask ourselves what makes Heroes of the Storm – the game as we know it. We will tell you that this is a common lvl of characters, talents instead of gold and items, short matches time and the presence of unique objects on a map – all this is the main difference from the other MOBA games. Reducing healing abilities and adding gamechanging abilities threatens several of the components above.

Amount of Damage

I think nobody will be surprised that the assassin and specialists are able to put a ton of damage, due to the fact that the healer classes have much greater potential to preserve the life of an ally. If damage dealer has slightly less damage, at the present healing level, the probability of death of one of the teammates would be greatly diminished. On the other hand, a decrease in healing abilities will lead to an increased number of deaths, most players will have to return to base in order to restore health and teamfightes will become much shorter.

Malfurion healer

All this makes the fight for the map object much more complex. And this is one of the biggest distinguishing features of Heroes of the Storm. But what if you reduce the damage of assassins and specialists in proportion to heal? Reduction of damage will lead to increased average time of the match, because it will be more difficult to break the enemy’s throne.

Conclusion

But none of this means that Blizzard will not make a support more fun for the players. I’m sure they are going to release the new healers that will be significantly different from those that already available in the game, and maybe they will affect the Meta so much as none of us expect.


Dehaka and Kerrigan

Dehaka: Clever hunter

How to gang, and how to avoid them

Dehaka Smart Hunter


Dehaka – unique tank that has teleport as his base ability. What makes Dehakas ability even more unique thats it is can teleport only in the bushes. This element makes it more powerful on maps with shrubs in strategic locations. Unfortunately, every ability have a negative elements. He does not have usual mount, and if he wants to go anywhere without digging, then he would have to go all the way on foot.

Without further ranting let’s get straight to the point!


Smart Hunter

Dehaka is the best ganker of all heroes with the global teleport. Gank – is the transition from his line at the other, the one where there is an enemy hero, which will be easy to kill. The actual gameplay of this zerg will push you to make a gank.

Firstly, he has a great stun. The one who you catch with your tongue and pull to your team mates will be definitely dead, especially if your allies are aware of the impending attack.

Second, the “bush” Mechanics (Z) of Dehaka just made for ganks. Due to the fact that you can only move in the bushes, you will be initially invisible to the opponents. This ability can be used to engage in unusual positions, such strategy helps to catch the enemy off guard. In addition, it will be much harder to hide behind the creeps, which will increase the percentage of accuracy of your tongue.

DehakaMecha

Dehaka is incredibly strong against Abathur and Lost Vikings. When all team mates fight for the map objective, Abathur usually soak exp with his unarmored body. He just sit in the bushes near creeps. And right here Dehaka can easily kill him, if he can hit him with his tongue. Same story with Lost Vikings, but unfortunately Dehaka can kill only one of them.


Escape

 

Some people may look at Dehaka and think that he, with his standart movement speed, just can not escape from anyone. Let me say that this is a BIG mistake.

Dehaka

Digging may be used as escape in any situation.

Just imagine: You stay in the middle of a fight, when you realize that it turnes not on your side. Your support is dead, mages already retreated and you stand all alone against whole enemy team. In this moment you must as fast as possible use your digging ability to run at the opposite point on the map. Any bushes will be ok. You may even dig right to the enemy base, and then leave with teleport (b). These tactic will be useful almost in every fight. But firstly, be sure that enemies set cd on all theirs stuns.

In all other cases try to dig  into some profitable places. Line where you can soak exp, or map objective. Just ask yourself: Where i will be useful right now?


Dehaka HotS

Dehaka: Deep review

Dehaka – Digging Tips

 

This article provides tips on improving skills of Digging. He is one of the Star Craft II characters, that possessing the ability to quickly move around the map. Other examples of heroes with about the same capacity can be called Falstad, Brightwing and Abathur.


Experience Soak

The ability to gather experience from the free line is one of the main advantages of the characters with a global presence. This advice does not apply only to Dehaka. Experience is very important in HotS, especially when you go out on a high level of play. Each pack creeps can be decisive, if you soak experience from it, and enemies do not. It is important to remember this, because if you are overtaking enemies by 1 level, then it could turn into an advantage in talent, and it allows you to completely control the game.

The best way to use a global presence on the map for the sake of collecting experience will be a simple delay before sending it to the map point. The farther away the object from the line at which you stand, the greater the benefits will derive. When you stay on the lane you are forcing the enemy to choose between staying with you and collect the same amount of EXP, or go away and give you opportunity to go ahead on the level. It is in any case a losing situation for your opponents.

Dehaka and Kerrigan

If the enemy decides to just leave the line and go to the site, you will collect a minimum of one free pack of creeps. This already gives a slight advantage to your team. Also it will help your creeps and they can do a little more siege damage. If the enemy decides to stay and collect the Exp, then you can use the digging for the rapid withdrawal from the line and fight for the object. This will allow your team to battle to the numerical advantage, make a couple Kills and pick up the object.


Digging

With such a strong ability to dig at any point on the map, some may think that they should use it on cd. Especially given the fact that Dehaka very slow. When you run on line, sometimes it seems that you are watching the game in spectator mode. But believe me, digging should be reserved.

Dehaka HotS

Going on line without digging will allow you to save your allies from the first minute of the match. If you use your (Z) on the cd it will be difficult to use it on right situations. If your team does not need you right now, then save your (Z) and continue to collect the Exp.

Another important point that should know is that the digging can not be undone. Once you have chosen a place where to “teleport” your character is no longer obey your commands and starts digging.

Activision Blizzard

HotS Fate Could be Unfortunate

The Fate of Heroes of the Storm Could determine Activision’s

Activisions Difficult choice

Activision Blizzard

Four months have passed since the contender for Activision for the MOBA market, Heroes of the Storm was released.  And in June, we talked to: “Can Blizzard’s Storm handle the MOBA market which is highly saturated?”  More accurate, as this exclusive and rapidly growing market begun to indicate some signs of saturation, we wondered as to whether Heroes was going to survive on the market or not, as the Activision team said that during E3, will be able to bring new players into the market?

Indeed, Heroes has become a crucial element for Activision, but not in the really to increased is amount of subscriber from the World of Warcraft franchise. At the moment, the major publishers are working hard to explore new channels of revenue as well as distribution models, having an active functioning digital topic is very imperative to keep not only the confidence of audiences but also financial analysts. After Hearthstone registered a massive success, some analyst in Wall are positive that Heroes will grow to that stature, hoping to earn revenues of around $200 million by an end of next year.


Here’s what the information tells us.

 

Since we last talked about MOBAs, there are many things that have changed. Firstly, the general market has increased by a small percentage since April, giving more evidence of our earlier claims that the market us at a plateau level. Following some years of incredible expansion, its audience has settled, compelling publishers to compete more and more over the share that is on the market. Also, each of the major bigwigs has managed to surpass the market growth rate. From April to August 2016, the monthly active user base off League of Legends by 8 percent, SMITE by 14 percent and Dota 2 by 11 percent.

Being at the saturation level, the MOBA market is beginning to consolidate. In mid-2014, the major 4 MOBA games accounted for about 59 percent of the universal market. Today that share is 67. Perhaps noticing the indications, Electronic Arts had canceled development of its MOBA Dawngate, and in January of 2016, Turbine/Warner Bros. closed Infinite Crisis. At the moment, the major titles are gradually draining the life out of the petite titles trying to survive in the market.

Activision HotS fate

In spite of an increase in problems with entry, Activision clearly indicated its confidence by releasing Heroes. Also, it was likely psych that came from having at least at least 9 million registered users for the beta version in February that escalated such a decision. As our ability to record traffic numbers is still at infant stages, it appears as if the current count has doubled, having achieved a whopping 22 million registered players in a short period. The 800-pound of Activation marketing machine has so far has carried Heroes forward. In fact, regarding active users per month, it has already left two of the major titles in the MOBA market, that is Heroes as well as SMITE. However, this was to be anticipated.

HotS 2016

Future of HotS

HotS 2016

Heroes of the Storm is one of the most famous video games at the market today, and for that reason it should have more of an impact on the esports  arena this year for a number of reasons.

Heroes of the Storm

First and foremost, the game was not released officially, until in mid-2015. Many  gamers had a lot of anticipation and many took part in the beta  version of the game and some got access a few months early by playing in the Activision Blizzard Heroes of the Dorm university competition. However, many people still managed to play the game for around six month, not more than that. The developers had also been spending lots and lots of money and investing into the game in 2016.

After a reward of a whopping $1.2 million for HotS events last year, Blizzard has increased that to a whopping $4 million in 2016.  And according to reliable resources there is also another Heroes of the Dorm event been scheduled, which should theoretically, entice more gamers to try the game on a serious note.

HotS 2016

On the other hand, ESPN has stated that it would be televising Heroes of the Dorm again in spite of the mix results that were witnessed on the first time around. According to a report published by Variety, the initial Heroes of the Dorm scored a .1 Nielsen rating, which would have been a bit lower than several programs that were showing that night. It did made many people talk about esports as well as heroes of the storm.

“This is a good thing for Heroes of the Storm, and an eye opener if not better for esports,” stated Jake Kulinski, who is a commentator at HotS as well as a Town Hall Heroes which is popular a webcast that talks about the game.

He also added that the 2015 Heroes of the Dorm competition created a lot of attention to the game in spite of it occurring months before the game was released officially. With ESPN now managing esports every now and then, it is quite obvious that it will still continue to air esports events even if they get the lowest rating on the market. The game has had almost one year to build a following, so there is a higher possibility that ratings will be higher.

Gathering information for the monthly blogs of Twitch.tv which mainly talks about the top 20 most viewed games on Twitch, from  the period running from April 2015 to November 2015 Heroes of the Storm scoped a position as high as 12th most viewed as well as low as 20th. However, with the increase in price money available, the number of players who are trying to stream Heroes of the Storm could also rise at a significant level, and this in turn will attract more and more viewers. This will be a good thing for the game as well as the players.

Gul'dan review

Gul’dan – Darkness Incarnate | Review

Hello and welcome to my review of the Gul’dan!

Gul'dan review

Gul’dan was born on Draenor, homeland of the Orcs, and was once a member of the mysterious Shadowmoon. Gul’dan was obsessed by lust for power, and concluded a secret alliance with the demons of the Burning Legion – a destructive force that had come from other worlds. Warlock drank demon blood and forever changed the destiny of his people. Containing blood demonic energy Gul’dan disfigured, she turned him into a monster.

Gul’dans Class

 

Gul'dan Class

Assassins deal bursts of high damage, specializing in either single-target or multi-target abilities, but lack resilience. They thrive on the battlefield through hit-and-run tactics, carefully timed attacks, and by capitalizing on the perfect moment to engage or flee.

  • Damage 8/10
  • Utility 3/10
  • Survability 5/10
  • Complexity 6/10

1st ability is:

Guldan Fel Falme
