    Silly bastards - and Malth himself - never seemed to realise that W-build Cho can easily outheal Malth's DoT without breaking a sweat. Once we hit 16 and I took Molten Block, I didn't even care about Last Rites either. There was zero other % damage on their team and almost no CC.

    We walked all fucking over them. Felt great.
    Did malth atleast build himself to further counter you? Too many choose the wrong talents thinking the basic setup will wash over high Hp. Many dont realize people can build against them

    I wonder about the mindset of some players in Competitive.

    We see a composition of ranged on their team...and my teammates keep
    picking melee. The game as you imagine, did not go well.

    I remember he took Memento Mori, but I also remember it still wasn't enough to be threatening. I also had Hammer Of Twilight and he was super predictable - initiating all encounters with E then W. I would just walk into his E, wait for him to W behind me, then whap him straight back into my team to get cleaned up.

    Eck no wonder. Sounds like complacency. And idiocy by smashing your head against the small wall without adjusting your strategy.

    This week's rotation is seriously the most hideous I've ever seen. I'm not gonna touch the game for a week. These matches are beyond terrible.

    Whenever he pops up into meta you constantly see the fight for Diablo and Thrall to either get or avoid that Apocalypse + Earthquake while rest of a team is random attempt to counter one of the two (if at all...). On top of that you have annoying Sonya dominating the solo lane and busted Blaze.

    Sure Maiev is still slightly overtuned, mainly her D, but she is at least interesting to play against. I honestly enjoyed the hyper aggressive dive meta with Genji way more.
    I love to play with Maiev against frontline-heavy teams as Medivh SO MUCH. Arcane explosion from 2-4 shields inside Maiev ult literally removes half of enemy team from the game

    Definitely got into the worst Ranked match in my history of playin' Heroes.

    A 16 min match at Dragonshire where no one on my team got a single kill. I was Support (Tyrande),
    so killing isn't really in my description, although I outdid the dps in terms of damage by quite a bit.

    0 kills all game. Like wtf.

    So just got this game



    And lost all Hope. In ranked and unranked there are draft losers and trolls, an QM is imbalanced like that

    Fuck all players who rush to pick their stupid range Carry and then fail, you know, at actually doing damage.

    WTH just played as Samuro vs Butcher and realized, his lifedrain ability stays even after switching to mirrors! That's some big shit tbh. Butcher still shit but cannot lane vs him / out smart him.

    The XP system is still stupid, at least in QM. You fight walls and minions all game and get XP like if you would have played godlike. Then i play as Genji and go 20-0 MVP with most hero dmg and shit, like my role should be, im 2nd lowest in XP gained.

    Why does that matter? Killing them denies XP for the enemy team and gives an XP advantage to your team. Getting that many kills by yourself also creates space for your team to do merc camps, take buildings or secure objectives and whatnot.

    Kills don't give huge amounts of exp. That's not the point, and not how it works in this game.

    What kills do is deny that person's ability to SOAK exp. As well as remove them from other battlefield concerns like camps or objectives.

    The worst thing you can do in HotS is chase kills. You don't always need to secure a killing blow, so long as you have pushed your opponent so what they were doing to the point they HAVE to back. That's the objective with skirmishes. I see so many people chase low-HP Li-Lis halfway across the map for like half a minute to try and get a kill... not realising that while they are wasting their time on that, they are also not soaking or applying meaningful pressure. In that instance, you might as well be dead as well for all the good you do your team.

    So, i've been playing post-rework-Medivh in QM for two weeks straight and can say with the straight face that it's one of the most fun heroes to play, his impact on the game is very high and it's very punishing for mistakes, i kinda love this stress when playing him and having to make hard decisions when to go in, when to keep chasing and when to retreat or whose healthbar i should save.

    Two of the best things that happened to me in this adventure were:
    1) All games with Maiev. When team realize that Maiev locked down 3-5 players of enemy team in her ult they instantly jump into the fray and i can land a 5 man force of will with arcane explosion upgrade. Instant rampage and 4k AoE damage.
    2) Killing cocky and overreaching players with arcane rifts, when enemy Muradin thinks that he can land those cheese hammers on me i just keep punishing him with arcane rifts over and over again, until he realize that he is at low HP. It works with literally everyone, it became so obvious to understand where enemy is planning to move after these two weeks.

    Just watching Grubby for the first time in quite a while and in his high Master MMR game, he has a Nazeebo in his team with 86 stacks at level 20. He doublechecked and was visibly not amused. Really reassuring to see people among the best 0.5% of players suck hard at times.

    Went into QM with Morales yesterday, went quite well. A guy that played Medivh (he did really good job on using that shield for saves) invited me and one other guy (played Butcher) for a few more games. Ended up 8-0.

    Blizz seriously needs to consider maybe a few tweaks to what heroes get matched up against each other in random...

    Serioisly, the only reason to play Hero League is avoid annoying maps.

    The ranks clearly doesn't matter when you lose 3 games in a row because you as a Tank had to soak experience for the team who just wants to mindlessly brawl in MOTHERFUCKING Diamond 3. People have zero clue about their roles in the fucking game.

    Worst season ever, just cemmenting the missplaced fucks from last season in their wrong position.
