When it comes to the Nexus, Deckard will find himself on the battleground itself, far away from the streets of Tristram. We're bringing HGC caster Josh "JHow" Howard in to talk with Heroes of the Storm Game Designer Kyle Dates about how Deckard's skillset translates to the Nexus, putting their skills to the test alongside notable streamers!

    We debated adding the collision lines to Diablo when we added them to Lucio and Hanzo, but when we add functionality like this we are always cautious. It’s pretty easy to see the benefits it provides, but if we continually add more options and UI to the game, eventually we’ll have a game covered in “features” that can drown out the rest of the game (and actually the “read-ability” starts to cannabilize itself). Just look at some of the “show me everything” custom WoW UIs back in the Molten Core days, and you’ll see what I mean.

    That being said, we’ve decided to add it to Diablo, since understanding terrain edges is core to the use of Shadow Charge, Diablo’s key tanking ability. You’ll see it in the next major patch (non-balance/non-bug fix) after Deckard. (u/BlizzNeyman)

    [On the topic of combining the Hero and Team League queues]
    Separate ranking and MMR for each league while the matches themselves are formed in the same queue could be interesting, but I’d suspect that it would result in a net negative experience for the very reason you cite above. Despite the addition of voice chat to the game I don’t believe pugs will see themselves as equal to premades. There’s more that would need to be done to bridge that gap in players minds.

    The perception of fairness is as important as fairness itself, particularly in competitive play. (u/Blizz_Joe)
