Quick Navigation:


Art
  • Stitches has received several updated effects and animations to match his gameplay updates.
  • Sylvanas has received several updated effects and animations to match her gameplay updates.


Design

Armor
  • Now, just like Movement Speed modifiers, the game will apply only the highest (or lowest) amount of Armor to a Hero at any given time. We've adjusted ability/talent Armor values on a per Hero basis to account for this change:
    • Anub’arak
      • Nerubian Armor (W)
        • New functionality:
          • Increase the Spell Armor granted from Harden Carapace by 20 (to 60)
    • The Butcher
      • Enraged (Passive)
        • Armor increased from 15 to 25
    • Chen
      • Purifying Brew (Trait)
        • Spell Armor increased from 30 to 40

      • Untapped Potential (R)

Catapults
  • When a team destroys a Fort, they’ll now gain a Catapult in every 3rd Minion wave.
    • NOTE: In order to keep early-game Catapults from being too devastating to defending teams, Catapult attack splash size, attack range, and damage/health will gradually increase as the game progresses.

Experience Changes
  • Removed all Experience earned from destroying a Fort or Keep
  • Decreased Experience earned from destroying Towers by 50%
  • Passive Experience gain increased by 15%
  • Increased Experience gained by defeating defending Mercenaries by 100%
  • Laning Mercenary Experience
    • Defeating Laning Mercenaries will now grant 100% of Defending Mercenaries Experience.

Developer Comment: After listening to feedback, we have decided to pull back the laning Mercenary change outlined in our 2019 gameplay updates in order to give winning teams more opportunities to pull ahead.


Mercenaries
  • Boss Camps, Sentinel Camps (Hanamura Temple), and Support Camps (Volskaya Foundry) will now be flagged as Elite.
    • Elite Mercenary Camps are Unstoppable & Unbribable

Unit Radii

    The new HotS team are are getting rid of the specialist role in favour of converting the game into pure team based deathmatch, to the point where pushing a lane will now be bad for your team (no exp from main buildings, it just pushes the xp away so the other team can soak easier).

    This is what happens after years of HotS simply being treated as a second rate franchise and anyone who stands out being transferred to another team (WoW/OW/HS/etc) lol.

    I don't entirely agree with the doom and gloom about Sylvanas in this thread, but I need to do more tinkering on the PTR to flesh out my thoughts on that. And I don't agree with the upcoming XP changes at all, but we'll see how it plays out on live servers.

    What I'm worried most about is the lack of news on the upcoming ranked season. If the same format from the current season is carried over, HL is going to be even more dead. And if it's not, it'll still split up the queue unnecessarily.

    True I still use her master skin since I was super happy to having achieved it. When Heroes 2.0 made it a useless achievement I was a bit peeved but since she had no better skins in my opinion I kept using it.

    I watch some Sylvanas videos and I seems I will have to take back my words. She does lots of damage, even to the tanky ones. The arrow or dagger builds seems viable. There are talents that seem useless but they have potential.

    Dagger build seems to have more potential, I think. Q build has burst but in reality that will mostly concentrated into the enemy's tanky frontline due to how Q works (unless you do ballsy high-risk Windrunner plays by diving in with E, unloading and diving back)

    W build seems to apply a lot more sustained damage, and you'll be able to spread it all the way through their team just by pumping into the tank

    It used to be a better version of murky disable, now it at least requires some brainpower to use and gives your opponents opportunity to outplay you

    It used to be a channeled skill that basically screamed to the opponent's team "if you jump Sylvanas now she can't do shit about it!". If you used it before "without brainpower" you were basically deleting yourself from the game, which is why it was so unpopular to begin with. The reward was high, but so was the risk. Now it's a fairly slow moving skill shot, which can miss(like hook), be dodged(like hook) blocked by a hero you don't want to hit(like hook), that brings the opponent towards you(like hook), at a reduced speed(unlike hook), with a CD 4x longer than hook.

    yeah, just like powerful murky disable but without downside of being forced into melee as extremely low health character, you know.
    And no, with old MK you remove opponent from the game, instead of yourself, because, you know, that's how stuff works, you MK someone, run him into all bullshit your team throws and done, it's 4v5. Even if enemy dive character jump on you - it's still a win, since you chromie is safe to lob shit at everyone for next 10 seconds and re retreat to safety.

    I can't call any point and click CC spells in this game a "high risk". You barely risk anything outside of being a murky, since, you knowm you are put into a disadvantage for enemy to counterplay it.

    MK doesn't bring opponent to you, it brings opponent to whatever you want him to go, that's why it's powerful, even against "a hero you don't want to hit"- you just move that Diablo without charge away and he'll have to shamble back into the fight all while his team being exposed to pummeling. Seriously, if you treat MK as a 100% accurate hook that goes through shit right into your target - you are doing it wrong

    Yeah, your Chromie "lobbing shit at everyone" is totally gonna stop that Li Ming from hitting her full combo and deleting your perfectly immobile Sylvanas who can't dodge shit cause, you know, that's how stuff works. Assuming they didn't have Chromie on their team, who would just love having a low health target that stands perfectly still for them. There's a big reason why Mind Control had such a low pick rate, bro, and if you can't see why, I can only assume you're deliberately closing your eyes so that you don't have to. The new version, if you move that Diablo away? You've moving him away with a 30% move penalty, so you aren't moving him far...and unless you're far from your team, you're gonna be bringing him right to your team anyways(and if you ARE away from the team, you're taking yourself out of the fight as well)

    Also, why do you keep calling it MK? It's Mind Control, not Mind Kontrol. This isn't Mortal Kombat lol.

    Also, why do you keep calling it MK? It's Mind Control, not Mind Kontrol. This isn't Mortal Kombat lol.
    You are arguing semantics at this point, for the sake of arguing. MK comes from transliteration of "Mind Control" into russian and i just got used to it since i just had the very same argument in russian.

    I would also love to see your source of MC having a low pick rate (hotslogs says othervice, and higher ranks you check - higher pick rate of MC goes). MC is better than arrow in most situations since it ables your team to make guaranteed kills, while arrow favors blobfights that rarely happen with better players (unless you play against rehgar-bloodlust-centered teams, but such a gimmick is autowin at this point.

    Yes, he is slowed by 30%, now lets see the numbers:
    base MS of a hero is 4,4 slowed hero runs at 3.
    Apply it to a Diablo who just shadow charged in your face.
    you move him 7,5 meters away granted to obstruction, which is range of untalented shadow charge.
    All while him getting beaten up and not utilizing his body blocks, healing.
    It's an awesome ability and it doesn't make sense that people don't recognize its obvious power.

    Hotslogs has MC picked 40% vs 60% for Wailing.

    As for your example-first of all, it assumes Diablo is diving in way ahead of his team. If you're far enough back that Diablo has to walk 7.5 meters to get to you(and if you were among your team, it's unlikely he will even be able to walk that far without being body blocked himself)you are no threat to his team, which means you're out of the fight as well. And if your team is beating him up...you're doing exactly what he dove in for in the first place, which is keep pressure off his backline. It's also a slow projectile, so you're not even guaranteed to hit it from relatively close range.

    Bullshit. If u check hero league master ranks arrow is picked >70% of the time .If I add Diamond it goes down to 65% and if I add plat it goes even more down to ~61%.

    Mind Control right now is overrated by you greatly. MC in next patch is complete garbage(but then again so is the hero). You're forgetting that as a ranged assassin you need to be a very high impact char in teamfights.
