    Oh, stop lol; this is the most action this thread has had in 6 months, at least. Maybe I just wanted to talk to you guys, did you consider that, Anteus?

    If you wanted to talk to me you should've just called your mom and asked her to hand me the phone.

    Which is the most self-righteous hero?

    Impy is up there. Alarak is smug af but not really self-righteous.

    Anduin's up there... Uther...

    It’s alarak.

    Every other line is about how he’s the best and you should be grateful he’s allowed your presence while he Carrie’s the team.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    But that's not what self-righteous means. Arrogant and egotistical are not the same thing.

    I came across this new moba called Fangs. Anyone been following it? 4v4 with no towers or minions. Lots of brawling spread out over a BO5 format. Might be something? Unless it's not...who knows?

    https://youtu.be/k37u90ijH_U

    Looks very ARAM-y? No real macro strategy? Do you know how long games last?

    No idea about how the game plays. Definitely looks like short matches and not very HotS or LoL like.

    This is out and I tried it and

    It feels like a Netmarble mobile game. Like, it feels like trying to play those weird mobile gamed with the digital joystick on the screen. It doesn't have that, of course, it has WASD movement, but.

    You also have 5 abilities, an ultimate, and a passive to learn, so your beginning games are just a constant stream of wtf do I do.

    Instead of items, you basically have talents. Except you pick them all at the start of the game, they must be unlocked on your profile using in game currency, and you have a minute to decide what all you are equipping, cause the prematch countdown is already going. There's a generic one, three ability talent slots, an ult slot, and a boon, which are basically summoner spells.

    It is all new and confusing and I can't give a real opinion of it yet, but it feels maybe too dense for its own good at the beginning?

    Also, games are generally measured in single digit minutes, with a full match being I think Bo5

    Yeah I just tried this. Way too much stuff up front, especially for something that's supposed to be this super fast paced confined thing. I don't remember Bloodline Champions being this complex with skills or talents. Feels like they easily could have shrunk the number of skills by 1-2. Not only do you have to learn 5 skills for your hero, you have to know what 5 skills all the other heroes have.

    The talent system though, ugh. It took the thing I hated most about of LoL (the new rune system: totally killed the game for me after 3000 hours of loving it) and made it even worse. At least the runes in LoL have the same pool for every hero. Fangs has unique talent setup possibilities for each individual hero. It doesn't seem like you have any way of knowing which setups your opponents are taking every match, and by the time you figure out which they have, the round is over.

    There's some good ideas floating around here, but they didn't commit to making it fast and lean. The overload of skills and talents is the opposite of what they should have been going for, and it's not even a shorter experience since it's best of 5. It ends up being longer than your average HotS game.

    There needs to be an automatic one week ban for Nazeebos who take Vile Infection while over 30 stacks away from activating it.

    Vile Infection

    Additional functionality: Cannot be selected if at 120 or less stacks when reaching level 20. Please read your hero's trait and spend more time killing minions.

    So Fangs seems completely dead. 35 minutes and no match found.

    Has anyone tried Predecessor? Wondering how it differs from Strife. The character art looks...pretty bland.

    If you added Butcher to that list, I'm pretty sure you'd never play a QM again.

    Just had a QM Gul'dan beat my damage, in both categories, by 2k while I was Sonya. He told me I'm bad at the game at level 2. That alone was baffling, but I had double his kills, more kill participation, and more soak at the end. Then he did that "You're welcome Sonya" condescending thing after we won. Like, do these people just lack any kind of self-reflection or analysis skills?

    If you ever played Paragon it's like that. Strife is not super similar outside of both being mobas

    I just had to sit through 10 Cassias with the infinite ball lightning talent =\

    This kind of stuff should really be regulated to a separate arcade brawl mode. It's like if every game of mystery heroes in Overwatch had a 1 in 10 chance of loading an all Mei snowball fight mode. Great if you're into that, but it's not the mode you queued up for.

    Today this didn't happen at all.

    Maybe they turned it off? Or it's only a random set of games where it's on?

    I must have missed the Batman movie/episode where the Joker just made comedic memes on Youtube.
