Heroes of the Storm Patched

The new patch is now live in Heroes of the Storm, updating Blizzard's team brawler/MOBA with a number of balance changes and the addition of the new Lt. Morales support character. Battle.net has the patch notes that have been updated since the PTR notes were previously posted. Word is: "Weve just released a new patch for Heroes of the Storm, which brings a new Hero, art and user interface updates, balance changes, and much more to the game."

I really don't understand how Blizzard managed to put out two games at about the same time with the same initials.

Oh! Wow. Sorry about that. Carry on. Guess I'll wait until a Starcraft 2 news headline appears until asking the question. Still, if you'd like to answer the question I'd be much obliged.

Wrong game Kxmode.

Nope. I literally meant 3 episodes (campaign, volumes, parts, whatever term people use). Basically referring to Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void. So is NOW a good time to buy the COMPLETE game?

I stopped playing when they MADE me kill 50 fucking treasure goblins. Burned me out and I haven't been back. Although I do plan on coming back, just need a break. I need to show off my profile portrait to myself. In hindsight, not worth it.

Agreed 100%! The Quickmatch matchmaking REALLY needs some more constraining rules (like requiring a warrior vs. another team with no warrior... hello?! this happens in combination with support/no support, etc.).

Totally lax rules make for un-fun quick matches. They need to fix this ASAP.

I recommend that any player move on to Hero League ASAP, it's a lot better with drafting, and the game is great.

I've been playing HOTS since the alpha and it has definitely gotten much better progressively. But, the last two patches before this one have been terrible. I say that in complete aggravation of the last patch making the game even more frustrating. It's hard to say where it is stemming from, a combination of balancing, toon synergy & bad matchmaking, but completely from the ability to become completely steamrolled.

I actually had a game a couple of days ago (after much discontent with the patches) where 3 people on my team had 0 kills (including myself) and two only had 1 kill. Everyone was trying their best to complete objectives and get on a roll but we never even came close. The balance is way off.

> Sheesh... <snipped>

I share your "sheesh" by the way, but this is a good patch. It is not a sweeping balance change but it makes competitive several warrior heroes (Stitches, ETC, Diablo, Chen received buffs).

From what I have seen on the PTR Chen might actually be overpowered now in the right hands, haha, and Diablo still takes like an expert setup to use (so he won't really be used... they are worried about him being overpowered so he is only negligibly improved).

This will be remembered as the "warrior buff" patch and basically it makes certain existing warrior heroes (Stitches, Chen, ETC, Diablo) more viable, with negligible nerfs for Zeratul and Johanna and Leoric (who will still be top tier in my opinion). Also the new hero (Lt. Morales) is good and interesting but not overpowered.

I didn't get Swarm, but will get the Protoss one.


BTW, if anyone would do me a favor, Gamestop carries the collectors edition, but sadly I'm not driving 100's of miles to get a copy. If anyone can pick up a copy I'd pay for the shipping and throw in a bit extra.

I've been waiting until all three episodes were released before playing. Is it worth getting the entire StarCraft 2 game?

Sheesh, I'm not going to hold my breath [in reference to balance changes]! The last two patches were AWFUL. Turning a somewhat casually competitive game into a wannabe competitive game with terrible balance, terrible matching making and terrible 1995 netcode (Reconnecting > Successful Reconnected > YOU HAVE DIED > Reconnecting > Successfully Reconnected > YOU HAVE DIED (I have had entire games looking at those screens waiting for it to finally actually reconnect). The game lost it's "fun" let's see if they can manage to turn it around.
