    Old Azmodan was a hero who was fun for some people to play but who was annoying for literally everyone else in the game. His entire kit revolved around never being physically present anywhere and letting long-range globes and minions do all the work. Oh and please help me get stacks because otherwise I'll be fucking useless for the entire game instead of just the first half of it. But if I do get strong enough then I'll just take your buildings any time you ignore me and shove down your lanes whenever an objective is up while my team runs around avoiding doing anything meaningful.

    Yeah this sums it up pretty nicely. I think overall, his new design is a LOT more healthy for the game now.

    Like, after playing him a shitbunch, I 100% understand and agree with all the various nerfs they game him. Trait doubling in cd length and removal of base 25% damage aura was because that shit was ABSURD for a baseline ability and only furthered the above. It's still pretty impactful, you can still push out lanes with it and gain value during obj, and you can talent into the 25% damage aura still. That's still there if you want it.

    It definitely feels more fun to play against new Azmo as well. More fair.

    What build do you run on him? Only tried nuazmo a few times and not sure what to do. Even joining teamfights I felt like I did a lot less than I used to with him.

    After trying a bunch of stuff out, I've settled on this: https://www.heroesfire.com/hots/talent-calculator/azmodan#oS3W

    1-10 are locked in stone. Never not those. Wrath is extremely good, it's a very consistent source of stackage, and the 200 reward is frankly kind of insane. You get to dunk someone and then your next AA is like another dunk. Wrath marks multiple targets, and Bombardment WILL proc off on multiple Wrath-marked targets so you can REALLY chunk a team.

    13 and 16 get a little more interesting. If you just want general all-purpose value, then Brutish Vanguard/Total Annihilation. However, all talents on 13/16 have equivalent winrates, so there's not even a wrong choice there. Chain of Command can be VERY good on large maps where splitpushing gains value (Cursed Hollow, Alterac, etc). Cydaea's Kiss brings that Laser burst in even faster and also gives you a nice self-heal. Hell Rift is kinda nutty with Brutish Vanguard at 13, because they're automatically slowed after the Laser ends.

    But again, I recommend Brutish Vanguard/Total Annihilation.

    At 20 I've come around strongly on Black Pool. I think it's probably just the best talent for him. Consider that Pride adds a flat 100 damage and increases the area by 15%... but a single tick of Black Pool outdamages Pride immediately and will do even more if they take more ticks. The -Armor is nothing to scoff at either.


    Basically your goal early game is to just AA people in lane. Just keep chucking AAs, get a lot of early Wrath stacks. Dunk waves when you can, just rotate out AAs on the backline archer minions. Bombardment makes this even easier. Tide of Sin will one-shot then at a certain threshhold (~200?) but be careful below 200 because I don't quite think it will otherwise.

    In teamfights, you dunk fools and then AA poor fools marked by Wrath, get your Bombardment procs out, then Laser whatever sucker's nearby. Short/midrange dunks over long range because it's much easier to avoid long range dunks now.

    And make sure to AA people in teamfights. Fat stacks, yo.

    I've had a lot of matches lately where like, things go poorly in the draft, but instead of complaining about it and announcing that "it's over", my teammates and just focus on the game -on the little moment-to-moment decisions we can make to gain advantage- and a lot of the time, we actually win. And even if we don't, it's a much more fun experience.

    Draft-dodging the Cho'gall when we had half of our draft left to address them seems ... completely unnecessary.

    like i'm sure we could have won. but playing against chogall is just the least satisfying experience in hots and i've been horribly sick and just didn't have a second one in the same day in me.

    i think valla is pretty good weirdly right now.

    her being squishy doesn't really matter because burst damage is so impossibly high right now that everyone dies in a half second if you screw up, and she's really mobile still and can punish cc very hard.

    she can't really play into raynor because he just instantly trades for 75% of her healthbar, but besides that i think she's pretty decent.

    Azprodan required no stacking help. The hardest part was maximizing your value to your team pre-10 while getting as many stacks as possible. Once you had black pool you could easily take off.

    The thing is all the stuff you are complaining about there at the end weren't even Azmodunk build. The unhealthy one was laser build + demon army. You had one of those in your game you had to make sure a lane never got near one of your structures if you wanted that structure to still be around. Azmodunk didn't push that hard in person.

    The change to laser was a really good change overall and they opened up some interesting builds with that and the AA talents. The problem is they did this while absolutely gutting his traditional playstyle that was actually fun and presented a real risk/reward and wasn't cheesy bullshit.

    I know, man. I know. I've been playing in short bursts, though, which has helped a lot. Like if I hop on and I score a quick win? That's cool; I'll take my win and go do something else for a bit. Then I'll come back later, maybe win another couple, then dip out. I suppose, if I had been losing games, I'd keep playing just because that's how shit goes, but because I've been winning so often, it feels a lot better to go out while I'm still on top. Makes it easier to take a break for a bit.

    Also, just with regard to the tank thing: I actually kind of made it my unofficial Hots New Years resolution to get better with Warriors this year. Because I've always gravitated toward the off-lane position, I've obviously always been strong on like, Sonya, and my Artanis is surprisingly strong I think, for the one map I ever play him on. But I've definitely been working on Dehaka (and I think that's paid off really well), along with Firebat, Leoric and some others. Stitches has been seeing a lot more play, just because double-bans mean a lot of the higher-priority tanks like Johanna are seeing bans now, and I strongly feel like my Stitches has always been pretty competitive. I've probably been putting the most work into learning Diablo, though. But yeah -- tank's been very good to me lately, and I definitely feel like it's a role I'm developing into at a pretty successful rate. Feels good.

    I definitely still prefer to be the "off-tank" in most scenarios, playing beefy pick-off warriors like Dehaka and Stitches, and my Sonya's still strong, but I'm coming around to a lot more tanks lately and it's been awesome.

    I honestly think playing in short bursts is the best way to do it, just in terms of like, mental health.

    I find that the longer my play sessions go on, the... worse I get? Or, the likelihood increases, perhaps.

    If I play 3 games and lose 2, it's not that big a deal, I can shake that off.

    If I play 10 games and lose 8, I'm about to fucking knife somebody.

    So most days I just play a few games and get a few wins in and it's all gravy. I end on a high note and log off in a positive mood.

    it is staggering to me that they haven't touched raynor at all.

    62% QM, 59% HL, 61% UR with the highest popularity by far in all 3 modes. he's probably the most broken hero since release maiev. honestly probably actually the most broken hero since release li-ming since he's also extremely easy to play. all the other broken releases have at least been vaugely difficult to play. raynor is potato easy to effectively be a walking oneshot cannon.

    I love reading drama on reddit about people who were "unjustly" punished for being toxic or afk. This last round has a guy claiming that he was punished for being a "high volume player", as though playing a ton of games somehow means getting suspended is inevitable.

    I play this game pretty much every day and I have literally never been silenced or suspended. I have gotten the leaver penalty exactly once due to an ISP disconnect during draft. And anyone who has ever played with me knows that I am not shy about talking in voice or in chat. The chance that you got suspended and are one of the unlucky handful of people who are on the tail of the distribution, rather than just being a toxic shitlord, is almost nil.

    The best part is that this guy posted replays as "proof" that he wasn't toxic, when in fact they showed the exact opposite.

    Best part is now people have uploaded those replays and added music and other silly effects.



    And legit the guy is only really afk a couple times for a few seconds, however he does a whole lot of standing around doing nothing while typing to his team all the things they are doing wrong; then is not helpful or aware of what his teammates are doing around him ever, so no surprise that they all reported him

    There's actually something kinda interesting that came out of this whole thing too, I saw someone post a thread on Reddit saying like "yeah man i'm kind of a toxic player sometimes, but seeing this whole thing? i'm gonna change my ways."

    Sometimes, when I have a bad game, I get a lil'... yknow, uh, let's say "testy" with the particular teammate(s) causing the problems. Not toxic, but I definitely get upset/angry with them. Stuff like "why" or "come on, man" or "are you serious", that kinda stuff. It doesn't really escalate beyond that, or anything, but that's the extent of what happens. And sometimes I wonder if people report me for that. Maybe, maybe not. But either way, I've never been silenced or suspended or anything...

    BUT. I watched all that lulsy drama unfold, and that video, and that other thread about the toxic dude changing his ways and it made me think. I had an Azmo game where I got pretty upset at our Auriel for a) not only taking Resurrect but b) Ressing me into the entire middle of the enemy team just for me to die again. And again, I got pretty upset. I asked them why they took Res, and they replied "i just wanted to try it out, idk" and, in my frustration I wrote out something like "well now you know, it's bad, don't take it next time."

    At the end of the game, we won, and they wrote "gg, sorry for trolling" and it kinda made me think like, yeah maybe I should tone it down. Because while I haven't been silenced or anything, that doesn't mean it's okay to do, either. It's understandable that I get upset like that, we all do, we all have games where we're doing well and then just like oneee person makes it go awry, but. I feel like I should probably reel it in anyway.

    Because let's be honest, there's only a few steps removed between what I'm doing and what that person is doing (uh, well, a LOT of steps removed, but you know what I mean).

    I think I just gotta learn to accept that L, man. Just gotta accept that, this is what's happening, and getting upset with my teammates is NOT going to change anything. They aren't suddenly going to realize "oh, wow, you're right, i've been playing badly this whole time but your rousing speech has suddenly unlocked my INNER POWERS and now i am ready to CARRY THE GAME". I simply got unlucky.

    I think I will just keep those thoughts to myself. Because it helps no one. And when someone fucks up, they know. And yelling at them isn't going to make things better. I've been on that other side of the fence before and it feels fucking awful getting yelled at for making a huge fuck-up when you already know.

    I’ve been told “you’re welcome for the carry” or “gg, team too heavy” by the guy with 12 deaths, so, no, they dont know.

    But not much good to tell them so shrug.

    Some highlights of that video that get lost in the edit are that a lot of the times, that guy is making the right call, but his team keeps trying to fight without him, so they just keep feeding.

    They have an abathur comp into garrosh/Varian so they shouldn't fight mid, so even being afk early he gets to the bot wave at the correct time to soak, but it doesn't matter cause his teammates want to fight, so they lose without him, probably still would have lost with him.

    He doesn't defend against dragon Knight even though he is the ranged dps, and tries to soak to 10 so they can actually fight, someone needs to, tbf aba probably would have gotten it but I understand why he did it, team still tries to fight pre 10 and dies, so now that they have 10 he just stays and pushes since he can't actually fight if he backs anyway.

    But his teammates don't really pick up on any of that and he complains none stop to them.

    I'm there with you on learning to be less frustrated with teammates; having played a lot more as a 5 stack; you just gotta expect nothing resembling it in solo queue.

    2nd game of HL placements I take yrel early, team doesn't draft a real tank, doesn't ban garrosh so he walks right into us, and our banner, who hasn't completed all then placement games in 4 seasons, takes vera and the non-vp ult. We get crushed. Teammates all give him crap, I probably gave him some to, but maybe he is trying to get back into the game, what do I know. All I know is I shouldn't expect to win that game, work on being happy with that
