The Basics of Positioning

by Alebeard on

Proper positioning is an important part of Heroes of the Storm, but it is often overlooked by both new and experienced players alike.  Players are often careless about where they position themselves, which results in many a dead hero.  These deaths could be prevented by simply paying a little more attention to what is going on around you.  Here are a few things to think about when you decide where to stand, what route to take, or when you might be in danger. Be Safe The first consideration when it comes to proper positioning should be safety.  This is especially important in the early game, when you are often in a lane by yourself. Be sure to position yourself in a way that prevents you from easily being caught off-guard by the enemy.  For example, if you are in the bottom lane you generally want to be on the low ...

Azmodan is the gross looking Lord of Sin from Diablo. In Heroes he plays as a long range lane pusher who is great at securing kills and split pushing. He can be an easy hero to pick up and play but a tough one to master. If you would like to see the basics on Azmodan check out the BlizzPro heroes page here. Abilities General of Hell (Trait) This guy is what makes you have great lane pressure early and when left alone later. Using this on your minion wave will buff all of the minions damage and and health by 15%. Remember to put this with minions in waves that are not being payed much attention to as you travel around the map. This will also buff your allies summons such as Jaina’s water elemental. Globe of Annihilation (Q) This is the long range harass tool that this build ...

Episode 24: Butcher Talk, Kerrigan Build, and Discussion In part one of this weeks episode we discuss the patch, how poorly the bundle was priced for the Butcher and an article on Heroes.BlizzPro.com about “first impressions”. http://patreon.com/heroespowerhour Hero League Gameplay...

As of this writing, maintenance on the Heroes servers has completed and the game is available for play. However, forewarned is forearmed, so you should check out the patch notes to get a clear sense of what the game looks like today. Recall that today’s patch brings in the Butcher, the new Battlefield of Eternity, and a ton of major and minor changes to various heroes. Read the full patch notes below, and then wade into the Nexus for a hell of a good time. The struggle between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells has erupted out of the realm of Sanctuary, and the Eternal Conflict has begun in the Nexus! Angels and Demons now battle for dominance in their quests to destroy one another, and we’ve brought Heroes of the Storm offline for a period of extended maintenance in order to clean up after the mayhem they’ve wrought. ...

 

Overview: Battlefield of Eternity

by Alebeard on

The Eternal Conflict is about to begin!  In addition to sweeping changes to a variety of Heroes, this patch will also include a new Battleground. Known as the Battlefield of Eternity, this will be the first franchise specific themed map.  Not only does this new map do a great job of visually capturing the flavor of Diablo, it also includes completely new minions, mercenaries, and music all inspired by the Diablo universe.  This map doesn’t just look different from the other maps, it will also play differently due to a new type of objective and a dramatically different layout. If you haven’t already, check out this video to see the new battleground first hand. The Basics The Eternal Conflict is the ongoing struggle between Heaven and Hell in Diablo.  The Battlefield of Eternity is a large two lane map that visually depicts this conflict thru the use of two distinct ...

 

Order Up: Butcher Gameplay Spotlight

by Crow on

CM Cloaken has offered up this gameplay spotlight that explains how The Butcher is going to play once Eternal Conflict opens up. All told, it feels like the Butcher is going to be a primary kill target in any team fights that take place, simply because his damage output is going to be balanced around having at least some stacks of Fresh Meat. If you can repeatedly down the Butcher, then you’re effectively nerfing the output of the opposing team, even as the game progresses. That being said, a Butcher in an expert’s hands that’s also supported by a team purpose-built around keeping him alive is going to be a juggernaut, and that could make him exceptionally dangerous on the competitive scene. Much like Leoric, it feels like the Butcher is going to be something of a gamechanger to the Heroes meta. Tell us what you think about him in ...

Bonus XP Weekend Coming Soon!

by Alebeard on

Blizzard recently announced an upcoming 100% Bonus XP weekend for Heroes of the Storm.  This event will run from 1:00 p.m. PST on Thursday, July 2nd, until 1:00 p.m. PST on Monday, July 6th.  For those of you outside the Americas region of Battle.net, the event will begin at 1:00 p.m. local time. Blizzard is offering this additional Bonus XP weekend to make up for the fact that the previous event, to celebrate the official launch for the game, ended a day earlier that intended. With the Eternal Conflict patch scheduled to be released on June 30th, this will be a great time to power level the Butcher, or maybe you would prefer to celebrate the Fourth of July leveling Stars and Stripes Raynor.  Either way, plan to spend some time in the Nexus and make the most of the extra experience. As usual, this bonus experience will stack with ...

 

The Power of First Impressions

by Alebeard on

I was recently watching one of my favorite streamers (shout out to @KyleFergusson) when I was struck by the power of a simple statement that he made.  It was early in a game and he said, “I’m just trying to be as scary as possible”.  It was such an offhanded comment that at first I didn’t grasp the full meaning.  After hearing him make similar comments in other games, I finally started to realize how profound the idea really was. Everyone has heard the expression ‘You never get a second chance to make a good first impression’.  This applies just as much to Heroes of the Storm as it does to the real world.  If you get out of position and die a couple of times early in the game, the opposing team is going to mark you as the weak link and continue to focus on you.  Likewise, if you ...

 

Kerrigan Build: Zerg Rush

by balrogfanbp on

The Queen of Blades was always one of my favorite characters in all of the Blizzard lore. When I found out she was in Heroes of the Storm I jumped right in with her. She is a very difficult hero to play that requires the correct team composition, but is one of the few heroes that can devastate an entire team. For some of the basics on Kerrigan check out the BlizzPro character page here. Abilities Assimilation (Trait) Kerrigan’s passive trait grants a shield based on basic attacks and ability damage. Not too much to say here except get a feel for how much the shield allows you to trade with the various heroes in the game and if it will allow you to surprise the enemy into an early death. Ravage (Q) A great initiate ability that covers a lot of ground. Ravage allows you to position yourself in ...
