Tracer has finally blinked her way into the Nexus. Bringing insane mobility and many tools at her disposal to keep her safe. We’re going to cover a build that I think will take advantage of her incredible talent. She also has the best character trailer ever. Seriously. Watch this. Abilities Trait Reload This refills Tracers current ammo clip entirely. Unlike other heroes Tracer can move while auto attacking. Think of it like stutter stepping without the effort of stuttering. Q Blink She teleports to an area. It’s like Li-Ming’s teleport, but much more annoying. Tracer gets 3 charges of Blink. They refill somewhat quickly being on a 6 second cooldown. But don’t get greedy with them. Tracer has a catastrophically low HP pool. To put it in perspective it’s less than Raynor’s by a wide margin but, not worse than Murky. W Melee This is simply a melee attack when you ...

 

The Obvious Truth

by Alebeard on

Heroes of the Storm is a very complex game, especially when it comes to drafting. If you have watched any competitive Heroes games then you have no doubt heard the announcers go on at length about the many considerations that go into a good draft. They analyze these factors to speculate about which Hero a team should pick next, and to determine who “won” the draft. Analysis like this is great, and understanding the thought processes that go into why a team selects the Heroes that they do is a great resource. Even if you don’t watch pro games, you have probably had people in your Hero League games say that your team should pick X Hero because he is great on this map or because he synergizes well with another Hero. This can also be useful information, and it is always nice when your team communicates during the draft. Whether ...

 

Patch Notes for April 19th, 2016

by Alebeard on

Today is Tuesday, which means patch day in the Nexus. The biggest item in today’s patch is the pre-release of Tracer for those who have ordered a digital copy of Overwatch: Origins Edition. She will be available for purchase to everyone on April 26th. Blizzard also released a Hero Trailer today for Tracer, which provides nice insight into her personality and flavor. Another major change in this patch is the addition of Hero level into the matchmaking calculations for Quick Match. The system will match players with slightly less skilled opponents when they are playing a Hero for the first time, and slight higher skilled opponents when they are playing Heroes that they have extensive experience with. This is an interesting change, and the goal is to create more event matched games, where each team has a 45%-55% probability of victory. In the quality of life department, changes have been ...

A new mount will soon make its way into the Nexus in honor of MVP Black’s recent victory at the Spring Global Championship. Similar to the Cloud9 mount that was released after Blizzcon, this hexagon mount will feature the MVP Black logo and colors. What is different about this mount is that it will only be available for real money, but part of the proceeds will go directly to MVP Black. This is a great way to help support the players and teams that are devoting so much time and energy to the game. This mount will be released with the next patch and will be available until a new champion is crowned this June at the Summer Global Championship....

Heroes is a game that is constantly evolving. Everyone sees the big changes, like new Hero releases and balance updates, but there are also more subtle improvements regularly happening to the game as well. Blizzard is continually improving the UI and adding additional quality of life features with each and every patch. It is often easy to overlook these smaller, less visible changes, and miss out on something great. One such example involves Quick Casting. Quick Casting is a feature that has been in the game for quite some time. I even covered it in an article last year. At this point you might be wondering why I am bringing it up again if it has been around for so long and I have already written about it. The reason is because this feature received dramatic improvements in the Dehaka patch. If you are someone who is unaware of Quick Casting, or maybe someone who ...

 

Updated: Uther Build

by balrogfanbp on

Uther is one of the most recognizable heroes from the Warcraft series. In Heroes of the Storm he is an amazing utility support with great stuns. I always think of Uther as the best support you can pick for a team comp that is centered around diving or roaming. Uther also does a good job of shutting down melee centered teams with his amazing stuns. If you would like to see the basics on Uther head over to his hero page located here. Abilities Eternal Devotion -(Trait) This allows Uther to cast a short cooldown healing spell from a spirit form before actually dying. This talent can really help your team come out on top during very close team fights. Don’t be afraid to get into the action if you can turn a 1 for 1 into a 3 for 1. Holy Light  – (Q) Just a healing spell really. ...

A sizable new balance patch was released today. As you would expect, many of the changes center around Heroes who have become ‘must pick/must ban’ material and/or who have especially high win rates. Continuing with a recent trend, there are also several changes to some lesser picked Heroics in the hopes of making them more attractive choices. Here are some of the highlights: Illidan has received several changes aimed at making him a little less difficult to kill. These changes include a reduction in healing from his Trait and a nerf to some of his survivability Talents. They also buffed some of his Sweeping Strike (W) related Talents that they feel offer interesting gameplay options but currently have a low win rate. Kael’thas also received significant changes. His health pool has been increased, as well as the range on his Flamestrike (W), which should enable him to poke more successfully. They ...

Two months of Heroes of the Dorm action came to a conclusion last night as Arizona State University squared off against University of Texas Arlington for the right to call themselves 2016 Heroes of the Dorm Champions, as well as free college tuition. Both teams had been impressive throughout the competition so while ASU was considered the favorite, it was by no means a forgone conclusion. Unless of course you were one of the players on ASU. They had been confident and outspoken from the beginning that they were the team to beat, and their play certainly backed that up. As a result of their brash confidence, someone compared them to a Disney villain in a press conference earlier this week. Before the Finals began, Austin “Shot” Lonsert offered what may have been the quote of the weekend when he said, “If we’re the villains in this Disney story then there ...
