    diablo's isn't so great because he loses all his stacks and has to run all the way back

  • MMMigMMMig Registered User regular
    Yeah, I really don't plan on Diablo's trait when playing. It's more like a bonus.

    His Regen trait on stacks is nice though.

    Wait, how are they nerfing it?

    From one of the panels the two changes to Uther are:
    Divine Shield => Cooldown up to 90 seconds from 70 seconds
    Eternal Devotion (his trait) => Reduced from 10 seconds to 8 seconds

    The issue is all in the esports scene since apparently by every metric they have Uther is ridiculously dead on 50% win rate or very close to.

    re: Diablo's trait

    I think it's not a bad idea but the stacks and the loss of them on your fast rez make it almost feel like a punishment. Especially cause they are such a pain in the ass to pick up alot of the time.

    Diablo should have an option to wait on his rez and keep stacks or press d to rez in 5s. I think there are a lot of times you'd rather keep the stacks, but sometimes you just need to be alive.

    Also this is why i hate picking early. we first picked monk. Other team picked both mages. I thought ok, kerrigan is good at diving squishies. next picks were johanna muradin.

    oof. i got carried /hard/ to a win, barely did 30k damage because every engage i got chain cced for 4 seconds into blizzard death.

    For those who missed the panels, you can find them here:

    Also I feel kinda disappointed because we'd heard "4 heroes and 2 maps" and really we got 3 heroes and 1 map and then Arena mode in the distant future and Tracer I guess at some point.

    We got four heroes and two maps.

    Last year showed a little bit more of Sylvanas than what we saw of Tracer, and both she and a map didn't arrive until March.

    I can easily see Tracer coming out in April or so.

    A small piece of me was hoping that they'd end blizzcon with "Surprise, Tracer is available RIGHT NOW for everyone who pre-ordered Overwatch: Origins!"

    I think the thing we are kind of glancing over is that Cho'Gall is two heroes. Each head has its own abilities and talents. That basically is two heroes that act as one.

    a-hmmmm
    a-one, a-two, a-three, four

    it's a split-pushing stitches,

    why'd you pick stitches
    if you were going to split push

    tbh i'm happy it wasn't just 2 more maps. i think there might be too many maps in the rotation as it is

    Is that something we're glossing over? It's kind of a central tenant of the hero.

    Bah.

    Also, we need more maps anyway and then a map rotation.

    I want a starcraft map. It is conspicuously missing (unless a reference has completely flown over my head somehow, the maps are all either Warcraft or Diablo).

    sigh, ping danger over and over, whole team warns for bait on the boss, and the valla charges in trying to kill kael, uther divine shields as he has done many times before, and she dies instantly.

    everyone else on the team at 2 deaths and valla is 7 because she refuses to stay behind the front line. i just don't know how these people are high ranked.

    edit: and none of the maps are wc, only diablo and nexus themed technically

    technically none of the maps are directly warcraft themed, but all of the "it's the nexus!" maps they made borrow exclusively from the light fantasy aesthetic of warcraft

    There aren't any Warcraft maps either, they'll add those maps when they do another big franchise event. I'm a little surprised they didn't do that with Starcraft around LotV, but probably they'll do one after this next wave of heroes.

    They have also said, multiple times, that they fully intend to produce maps for all their major franchises.

    It's just a matter of time. Art assets take a huge amount of time.

    Starcraft and Warcraft maps will be released. We just need to be patient.


    Also-- I really like their neutrally themed Nexus maps. The Ravenlord, the Garden Terror stuff, the mystical desert theme are all really awesome, and it does not bother me at all that the new maps announced at this year's Blizzcon are Nexus themed, rather than tied to a specific franchise. Don't get me wrong, I want to see franchise themed maps too.

    But Luxoria and all of that are cool new places that Blizzard has invented and I enjoy seeing them.

    I thought they were talking about nerfing him at the pro level, but that sounds to me like it nerfs him for everyone pretty obviously.
