    Just hit master in HL playing exclusively Gazlowe. I would pick other heroes only if I was last pick and we needed support (I would still go Gazlowe even if we miss tank) or if Gaz was picked/banned (got some bans by my own team after they saw the prepick and when closer to master I was getting some respect bans from the other team).

    New Gazlowe is freaking awesome! Started the climb from Plat 4 after placements. Now, to brag:

    What build(s) do you mostly go for? I sadly haven't had much success in the few post-patch Gazlowe games I've played.

    I've tried many different builds and talents and ended up using this build in almost every game past diamond 2:

    1.Always Scrap-o-Matic Smelter (more mana on scrap).
    4.ARK Reaktor (turrets on bomb + lower cd), I would sometimes pick steam fists (quest) on Infernal Shrines/Sky Temple/BoE
    7.Hyperfocus Coils (except Infernal shrines where I go for XL turrets)
    10. Always Robo.
    13. Goblin Fusion (4th charge on lazor), except if enemy team has ETC with Mosh or Valeera, then X-tra large Bombs
    16. Kwik release charge (except for Infernal Shrines and BoE where I'd go extra turrets)
    20.Always Robo.

    I don't think Gravo Bomb is bad, it's super effective if you can hit 2 or more heroes, but the problem is that it's hit or miss. It makes you a one trick pony and if you miss it, then you lose most of your value in TF. Robo goblin is fantastically versatile, you can protect back line from divers, you merc and lane clear much faster, you get escape and chase mechanic. It's just a much safer pick over Gravo.

    Meanwhile I have been trying to get into Master for a week now. Instead I am back to Diamond 2 because of people throwing games constantly, either by doing big mistakes, or simply not doing a good draft.

    Dude, you're crazy. But in a good way.

    That feeling when you do 116+k hero damage on Guldan, and lose the game b/c Zera really likes his odds going 1vs3 or 1vs4 and spends more time being dead than alive.

    After playing several games over the course of a week and am still not even close to reaching Master yet, my conclusion of the mmr in this game is that it is complete trash. Despite having a positive win rate since my very early placements, I am now getting negative points from winning games, and winning against higher ranked teams give me nothing to compensate for said loss of points. What the heck is the point of a ranked system if you don't actually get significantly more points for beating higher ranked players?

    Played a pretty solid game as Morales. Certainly not my best, but I carried myself well and made a bunch of clutch saves, and had a solid 90k healing done at the end of an 18min match.

    Did I get a commendation at the end of the match? No. I did not.

    Our Leoric did

    For "Combat Medic"

    High healed damage in teamfights

    Been trying out Genji, got a Braxis Holdout game and decided to try out a deflect build. We lost both keeps within 10 minutes, somehow managed to cling on until level 20, and then got two wipes of the other team by jumping in and deflecting Cassias Fend (tons of hits) so we could push all the way to core. Twice the hero damage of anyone else on the team. Deflect build seems fun.

    Played a Hanamura map as Auriel and everyone kept complaining about my build being the reason we were going to lose. They didn't stop complaining up until about 10s before I had to single-handedly escort a payload that got us the win.

    Today was a good day for me.



    First time reaching Master League in this game and I did so with my trusty Anub'arak. Took me 120 games in total (played 2 games after reaching Master) and the promotion match I almost lost because of the enemy getting the shrines most of the game on Infernal Shrines. However, we managed to do a complete turnaround because the enemy Falstad was caught out of position trying to push bot, which gave us the opportunity to kill their team before they finished the objective, and managed to push the core with the Punisher. It was a pretty epic comeback.

    Today was not a good day in qm, i got terrible groups like 90 percent of the time, which is pretty insane and had a huge losing streak as a result, usually its pretty 50/50 or at least 40/60 to win. Bad luck or something changed after 2.0, who knows.

    On top of that some asshole complained to me and only to me about Probius all the time in one game, while we had a Genji in our grp, that had 1 kill and enemy team was full of nice soft, juicy targets. Somehow that was ok to him, but not my performance apparently, even tough i did my best to push lanes and defend.

    No bad luck, there is a crapton of returning players and (new) people from OW doing the quest chain. Quality of play is the worst in a loong time. But some will stay and learn, so in the end it should be a good thing.

    edit: Had twice 'best healer' today, once as Thrall and once as Probius . Both games we had a dedicated - or not so dedicated - support as well.

    Infernal Shrines. Wiped the enemy team in late game with a path to Core through a half-dead keep. We had four up AND a minion wave close by. Obvious, right?

    But no. My team peels off to go for the shrine that just spawned. I hammer pings on Core but get shouted down.

    "Objective first, don't get greedy, take the safe win"

    We did not win.

    So guys yesterday someone recognized me by my name and asked if I was the same Apepi from MMO-Champion in a random HL game, that means I am famous right?

    Any ways my win-rate with Li Li is 70%. I am just crushing fools like no business. I solod a Li-Ming 1v1, that was fun. And today Anub and I won a 2v3.

    What the shit is this matchmaking? I've got some really unbalanced and downright awful team comps after 2.0

    That moment when you play your first Hero League game in 5 weeks and get MVP as Li Li in a Platinum 1 game.
