    Almost looks like 40k Marine more than the firebat.

    The lack of helmet gives me pause.

    Could be idle animation similar to Raynor base skin, where the helmet slams down once locked in and is affixed ingame

    (Also, it's "MAH GOOSE IS BEIN' COOKED" =p )

    It is a Stacraft II design where the helmet is different, here is a picture.

    I never played Starcraft II myself, but I think Firebats are supposed to be tougher units so I guess a Warrior role in HotS?

    I'd be totally stoked if the leak continues to be true, but that doesn't look like the firebat as you can see the hand isn't the flamethrower. It looks like a gauntlet so I'd hazard it might be a new skin/model for Uther or possibly Muradin. I'd even say it looks similar to his Blackrock or Dragonflayer skin - https://heroesofthestorm.gamepedia.c..._Blackrock.jpg

    I'm not saying it's a Starcraft themed skin, just that it looks like some skins that exist already. He might not be working on anything from the Starcraft universe, as it's certainly not clear from the image or video.

    its funny because the story of starcraft revolves around heros who are usually heroic units of unites that are easily killable and extremely fragile in game.

    he could be a warrior but i'm thinking they'd default to assassin, mid range (like Cassia) aoe assassin. They DO change things based on what the game needs or what they want to do rather than being 100% true to it. so they could make him a mid range warrior, or a 'specialist" for minion control since their entire point is flame throwing groups of zerg.

    for example choice of talents to increase minion killing, sige dmg of his guns , or single target.

    i'm like 60% sure that like with others they are going to combine him with a maurader since they are the same thing with different weapons basically. all the terran unites have heroics or abilities that invoke entirely different unites
    I grew up Horde, and as a proud orc shaman I cant understand these people. "ooh we blew up your city and killed everyone you care about but thats no reason to be angry" "oh we destroyed your entire country and murdered your son, but get over it" "Oh we invade foreign countries and melt, torture and mind control our victims but the Alliance were negligent and accidentally sent Tauren into dangerous territory. THEY are the evil ones" The players hate hypocrites more than murderers

    In SC2, the Firebats were a melee-ranged flamethrowing splash unit. They were tanky to a degree. I'd say it will probably be a Ranged Tank with conal auto attacks (Swiping flamethrower from left to right, or something along those lines) with DoT components. I'd probably guess it'll be a disruption/DoT based, with slows from burns.

    That said, Sgt. Hammer has Widow Mines, which are an entirely different Unit in SC2 made from the same building (Factory). Maybe they'll give the Firebat something from another unit from the Barracks. A quick look at the abilities from those units, maybe the EMP Round from Ghosts (Turn it into a grenade) that shuts down Shields or Concussive Rounds from Marauders (Turn it into a Stun/Root if they're already slowed).

    Alternatively, they could spice it up and make it a Mulit-class. Helions and Hellbats can interchange, maybe Helion Assassin and Hellbat tank? Maybe your Ult lets you change.

    Hammers spider mines are 100% borrowed from Vultures. They don't even function as widow mines. EMP grenade (and grenades in general) already taken by Morales.
    I'm positive that they'll turn Firebat into short ranged burst character (original starcraft style) with some suicidal abilities mixed in and option to talent into tanking.

    It'd be interesting if they gave him some kind of DVa-like self-destruct, without the popping out of the suit and getting away with it.

    I stand corrected, I just remember the functionality of Widow Mines being the same (Burrow -> Seek nearby targets once armed). I didn't actually play much of SC2, just did the campaign. I remember Vultures being shit in the WoL campaign though, even on the Map you're supposed to use them.

    While I never played Starcraft, just by the looks of the Firebat unit I would expect/want short ranged, ability damage based, aoe tank. Basically a mage tank would be cool.

    Dunno, I just have a feeling they won't make a third Terran Assassin (Also Tychus has already shorter range) or Specialist as we already have a Hammer.

    There's already too few Starcraft Warriors, let alone a Terran one.
