That was very wholesome up until it was realized Cloaken was slowly bodyslamming the world

So I think this last patch broke Quick Match.... 720 seconds in queue and counting.

The new Stiches rework sounds horrifying, slows that trigger bigger slows and talents that cause slows to slow while slowing you slowly into oblivion while Stiches itself becomes completely unslowable at level 20.

Also hooks that trigger flat%-heal, more gradual % heal, %dmg and more hooks.

This rework stinks!, but that's the way I like it.

Wow. Blizzard is on a roll with messing up.

First Diablo Inmortal then the whole mess that is Beta for Azeroth to basically killing HOTS out of nowhere.

I fear for Overwatch.

I don't really see how this is "messing up". If it was consistently underperforming, it makes sense not to sink money into it.

Meh, I seriously doubt moving the e-sports will kill the game. I have seen many games that never had a big e-sports scene maintain a good community.

Now I do agree that Blizzard has been making dumb mistakes though.

"Were also at a point where we need to take some of our talented developers and bring their skills to other projects. "

They are moving the devs from HOTS to other projects, that means 'maintenance mode' ala Diablo 3. No new updates nor anything else.

There is the vague promise of new heroes.

So probably 4-5 heroes a year. Orphea feels like a badly timed release in hindsight

Ahhh, nevermind. Thats dumb as fuck then.

I thought it meant that they were just deciding to get rids of the e-sports scene. Not cutting off updates entirely.

So yeah I agree that this is incredibly stupid of them if its the case.

Except they explicitly say that they will still release new heroes.

Heroes was always pretty much a niche game. It got introduced rather late to the picture, and never really got as much popularity as other MOB As. I was actually surprised that it managed to hold a somewhat successful e-sports tournament in HGC for so long. But yeah, I feel that at this point it was just not worth the cost, which is why it wouldn't come back in 2019. And since it's a "dead" game, why not move the devs where they can be more useful?

Because they haven't given us Tirion Fordring yet.
