Li Li is so fun and cute. Why do you not have the master skin yet?
priestess dress skin for tyrande when?
Reminder that this game is too zoomed in
>hurr hurr I'll be clever by claiming the commonly accepted definition for a faggot is a loud motorcycle rider like that episode of South Park I saw
You put penises in your mouth and anus, while being a general annoyance and aggravation to others from your mere presence.
GOD DAMN I HATE MY TEAM SO MUCH IF ONLY EVERYONE WAS AS GOOD AS ME I'D BE TOP 10 NA AND AND...
diablo is fun as fuck but I'm shit with him and thats why we lost
I own a lot of heroes, except I spent gold on 3 master skins and the coin mount so I wasted that 50k gold. Not that the few heroes I'm missing are anything I'm eager to get like Rexxar, monk, thrall and butcher. I'm only at like 8k gold for now.
Well, that's okay anon. I just like to keep a bit of gold, just in case some amazing (or limited) day 1 purchase is released.
I need pictures.
Picture of Sonya being cute/sexy.
I own Muradin, Uther, Jaina, Thrall, Raynor, and Malfurion.
Thinking about getting Gazlowe next, but I kind of want to buy the pig mount and Uther's master skin and if I get Gazlowe I can't afford the skin. What do?
not gonna judge before watching, but from what i see it looks considerably low budget

Why is everyone so anally blasted about TLV?
I usually pick Abathur or BW if the situation permits it, if not, Kael, Azmodan and lots of other heroes can make sure that even if they get an XP lead, they will have a huge disadvantage during teamfights.
I've been playing QM exclusively these past two weeks after exclusively playing HL. Probably 75% of my games have Abathur in them, and if he's not on a team he compliments well, it's a guaranteed loss for that side.
So what part of Blizzcon is free? Nothing but the opening? Is there a way around that? 30 bucks is outrageous.
Also, that's a cute picture.

Is this just a shitty meme comp, because I can never see it being good against anything other than a no-sustained dps team, and one of the Warriors has to be named Sonya.
Most vikings you see below 3700 mmr are shit who're carried by their hero being broken. Once you get past low masters. or try playing them assuming you're not a shitter, you'll see how overpowered they are for yourself.
The championship games will be free to watch.
Im sure whatever they say in the panels will show up online immediately, I dont know if there is enough interest for anybody to host streams
Honestly you really aren't missing anything. All the trailers they show they will post. You miss some panel questions, maybe some art work which someone will probably post anyways. There's really no reason for the ticket unless you're a die hard fan or you want all the goodies.
before choosing a melee character, the game should give you a popup that asks "are you a pussy?" and if you answer yes it permanently locks all melee characters so you can't ever use them EVER, so sick of people playing melee heroes afraid to get close to people, I'M GONNA HEAL YOU, THAT'S WHY I'M THERE
I am quite the fangrill, but only for this game. Can't give two shits about Starcraft or something though. I wont be getting the ticket for sure, but a part of me would like to see the spectacle in whole.
Playing Aba makes it the easiest to blame every single loss on the rest of your team. Always the least deaths, even the shittest abas should manage to top atleast one stat, and its the rest of the team who failed to get the objective, not you
But what if you are playing a melee character and you are the healer?
Who has read some /lili/ lore and can agree that she has seen some absofruitly terrifying events. Under normal circumstances, this bitch should have some 11/10 ptsd but huzzah for fantasy.
Id rather ignore her getting her uncle killed

So, a grown up Lili would look like this? Or are WoW pandas fat when they grow up?
If Li Li ever grows up the c ucks over at blizz better give her a unique non fat panda model
>Activision Blizzard purchased Candy Crush Saga developer King Interactive Entertainment last night for a cool $5.9 billion USD; about 20% above market value. The move likely leaves them owning five of the top grossing franchises in the industry. "Candy Crush is one of the most lucrative games in the world, earning some $1.33 billion in revenue in 2014 alone according to a King financial statement. The studio, which operates Candy Crush and a number of similar games including Bubble Witch and Farm Heroes, grossed $529 million in the second quarter of 2015."
Fat tits l edition.
Which Blizzard females have fat tits?
Fucking shitters don't retreat when I tell them to retreat, they just keep pushing in farther and farther until, woops! "I'm 1 hp better start turning around now!" nope I'm dead, now the enemy is pushing our core! FUCKING IDIOT GOD DAMMIT THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE 5X AS MANY DEATHS AS EVERYONE ELSE, I'm so fucking pissed about having to play with these people, like how do you even get to level 40 being this braindead retarded
This must be the 'Sonya takes Leap at 10 and 20' effect, losing a game they would otherwise have snowballed as they were winning beforehand
murky was on point as well, proper style
Thanks Blizzard, I'll never walk again.
Here's what I wrote up last time I threw this in /hots/.
So Li Li's stuff is in 4 collective places.
The first is Li Li's Travel Journal is a bunch of her adventures with her uncle Chen about the continent that was unlocked when the Mists of Pandaria expansion pack came out.
The first 4 parts are the beginning of her story. When the 5'th part hits, enter in the graphic novel.
Second part - Pearl of Pandaria is the interlude of that tells of when she first ventured into Azeroth to go find her Uncle who was very busy influencing the Horde and Alliance by helping key characters seemingly at random. Her friend, Bo, is there to help her and is consistently trying to convince her to go home back to the giant sea turtle that the pandas live on (Pandaria is still unknown at this point - there's actually a fuckton of pandas there but the ones that live on the turtle dont know that)
Anyway, lots of stuff happens and
Bo eventually gets murderedright in front of her while Chen came out of no where to save her at the last second.
They go home back to the turtle for a while.
Enter in the third part: Quest for Pandaria which is very extensive in comparison. It's all about how Li Li goes out with Chen back to Azeroth to try and find Pandaria (the panda continent that is still hidden by mist). They learn life lessons on the way with each part connecting to the awkward/tense family argument that revolves around Li Li's dad (her mom died in a storm while on a fishing boat).
This entire story has so many themes squeezed into it, it's not even funny. Shockingly similar to Game of Thrones in how a ton of people die very violently.
Through a lot of fortunate and (mainly) unfortunate events, Li Li and Chen finally end up finding Pandaria completely by accident after they survived a very unconventional battle between two Horde and Alliance ships way out in sea.
Enter the last part of Li Li's lore - the rest of Li Li's Travel Journal (parts 5-11) which go on about checking out all of the locations that the player would get to see once they got their hands on the expansion.
Some of it actually refer to the pandas getting assistance from "travelers" who are the players. Eventually it comes to an end with Li Li and Chen's family getting ready to do the final battles of saving Pandaria versus some evil with the help of the Alliance, Horde, and travelers.
Which I imagine is concluded with the finale of the expansion which I never played because I was done with WoW after Cataclysm (the expansion before)
threadly reminder that you would all be very sad and regretful if i died during my surgery tomorrow. stuffed animals and anthrax should be sent to
1044 Belmont Avenue Youngstown, OH 44501. Room 5422B. Patient Name - Eric Gbur
all of my limbs are broken in some way aside from my right leg and i have a catheter in my dick
I do hope they put a female draenei hero in. I don't think they are the biggest though. They have the biggest butts though.
no, I just wanna play support, but it's hard to lead your team when you're supposed to be supporting, your other teammates have to kind of know what to do without me having to explain anything to them and if they're gonna be retarded then they should at least get some map awareness
next motorcycle season, maybe
snoke, is that you?
I think I remember taking that pic a long time ago. Didn't even have a scanner. Turned out well.
Well it sure as hell won't be a classic character that does that. The only classic character they have that would generate some hype is Vikings and people still didn't that hype over them.
This was a good one. We were constantly a bit ahead throughout until we hit a brick wall when they got 20 - suddenly I realised we didn't have a tank and they had a Johanna constantly in our face. Lost three and I almost thought the game was over until I realised Raynor took Raiders and they couldn't attack our core.
I'm not sure if it's a glitch, but sometimes after Shadowstalk ends, Tyrande won't autoattack anything if she's just standing in range of enemies but you haven't clicked on a specific one. Also turns out Murky's OctoGrab lunge has a deceptive range, I see him chuck out the puffa fish and hit Sprint to run for it, only for him to dive forward a good few metres. Luckily Uther divine shields me and after a comprehensive throw by the enemy, we get the DK and end it.
Also I'm hardly the best pilot for this hero, but fuck me, no wonder she gets constantly banned in competitive.
With Athanasius, who is a damn site better than they think they are.
They've mentioned wanting to make Fenix, but couldn't at the time because Leoric just released and they didn't want to release to many characters with rebirth mechanics close to each other.
alright you bronzies ya boy gucci is going to blizzcon. first what should i write on the graffiti wall and 2nd on sat from 11:30-12:30 during the hots state of the game if the devs open a q&a session what question should i ask?
>what should i write on the graffiti wall
>if the devs open a q&a session what question should i ask?
Legit can't think of a question I'd ask them. They all just sort of boil down to "what's coming up", which I'm sure they'll spend the majority of their time answering.
got it senpai i'll write "git gud" and i'll ask if they purposely keep the game unbalanced so ppl will keep spending money on the FOTM. also i'll try and get a few canada uther skins for my fellow memers i know they are giving them away at the hilton wowhead party on thursday i'll see what other skins i can come up with.
you better make it you shitter so you can see me upgraded to silver soon.
So now that we know Garrosh is next, who else is gonna be in HoTS soon?
What's your record today /Hotsg/?
1-9 in HL
Tilted as fuck right now
Playing Illidan like
"No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
When the curtain's call
Is the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl
So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made
Don't want to let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't want to hide the truth"
14k gold saved up as a level 23, I am really enjoying Tyrande and will definitely pick her up after this week, What other hero should I turn my gaze to if I really enjoyed playing as Leona in Assfaggots?!
i want championship games taht go all the way and are not one sided.
Morales is so damn good. Pairing her and a Sonya is pretty much unstoppable
Why is she eating with Lin?
Oh man, Lin and Sonya's lesbian adventures would be the best game
Her winrate on hotslogs is rising quickly. Her ability to save other heroes with W and heal multiple targets quickly makes her amazing. She also has the best self-healing in the game, and her stim ult is incredible if you have a Sonya or Butcher on your team
>Her ability to save other heroes with W and heal multiple targets quickly makes her amazing.
Any tank can just bully her nonstop making Medic's team have no front line. She doesn't heal multiple targets
>using a gun
>during the the First War
Them Draenei need some good BGC all over and inside of them.
>Did the Orcs eat up the entire cgi budget or what?
Yep, they tried really hard with the orc CGI but then had no money left over for the rest. It's like you can see the green screen.
I think they are mostly done, it was suppose to come out I think around december but they pushed it back when universal thought it would make a good summer blockbuster.
They probably didn't want to compete with Star Wars as well.
Man, I hope the Orcs are worth it because some of the cgi looks horrible. Maybe they'll still improve on it or at least don't show too much bad cgi.
Because blizzard didn't market it at all, they thought that letting streamers into the alpha/beta was all they had to do in the current moba market.
That and the game has shitty mm with not many heroes, slow releases and lack of communication/new information. The game literally was built on hype and they can't even do that, in the beta they were struggling to release heroes in an already small pool ever 6-8 weeks. It's fun to play, just not that fun to watch so their streamer hyped plan with twitch didn't pan out very well.
they are using the streamer tactic in every of their betas. Like they have the overwatch beta now and people were pissed of because their "random" beta invations into the closed beta included 95% of streamers
So it's having an opposite effect actually.
It's a shame since i am trying hots and its fun
The competition also has millions and millions of players with years invested.
The greatest mmo ever could pop up tomorrow, but its going to have a hell of a time competing with wow, especially if tries to price itself the same way, only more expensive
massive burst in my pants
>ywn snuggle with Jaina under a warm blanket after spending the entire night studying
Why aren't they teasing out any new information at all for hots? Even overwatch that just went into closed beta teased out a new hero.
Yeah, overwatch is saving it for blizzcon too, but they at least are giving people something to talk about, like what are her abilities going to be. There is zero to talk about in regards to hots since they aren't hinting at anything.
They've been pretty regular with the 7 week schedule. For a while now it's been 3 weeks for the hero with no patch, and then 4 for the balance patch hero. They've done this even after the gamescom interview.
people already are already expecting heroes and they have 3 hours to fill anyway
hots has indirect disappointment amongst franchises. better to just spare everyone the childish "we have enough X" complaints for a few days
>people already are already expecting heroes and they have 3 hours to fill anyway
They should tease out at least one of them or even a picture of one of them. No one is talking about anything related to hots because they barely ever talk about the game as it is.
When it's struggling, that is no time to stop talking about the game for long stretches. They should be getting people excited for the hots panels.
the feel when u snipe abathur from with double owl on 20
my fav hero is zagara tho
>lagging drops your FPS
>no unit select
>have fun game with some guy
>instinctively click leave score screen
>can't add him at all no matter what you do
Goddamn, it's like they wanted this game to fail. Either that or they just gave up
I didn't know that was a thing, apparently I'm 2945. is that decent?
I only play this game a few weeks every couple months to goof with my old friends when I get bored of the current dota2 patch
every single team fight
>battlefield of eternity
>upgrade death march at 20
>can easily hit whole enemy team at immortal
>drain hope on 5 people
>literally unkillable unless they back off because CC won't stop it
Don't spread lies like that somebody might actually believe you. The drain only applies on the 3rd swing and is super easy to avoid and even if by some miracle does hit easily broken tether.
Any Leoric that doesn't take Spectral Leech or in some very extreme cases Hardened Shield is 200% retarded.
I'd prefer Grom but a true warrior Orc with a big axe that smashes people to bits is what I need.
Thrall is good in this regard but I need a more savage big guy.
Because MMR is completely meaningless outside of the very bottom and very top as well as 5mans only.
Maybe 400 or so since nobody that actually plays dota 2 could ever be considered intelligent.

I'm 90% certain it's either Tyrande or Malfurion but I only heard it once a long time ago so I'm a bit fuzzy. I barely play those characters and no one plays Thrall so it's hard to repeat
Why is Mulfurion such a nice chap?
If we all bitch every day about medic ugly ass face, will Blizzard remodel it like Tychus? Please do mates, I really miss my cute medic. ; _ ;
generally raiders is better, but hyperion is also good especially in maps where you need to control an area
hyperion doesn't even do *that* much damage, but people are scared to death of it
They will remodel it to look like Tychus. Kinda like that only with more bulk
>spends centuries at a time "sleeping* with Ysera aka the second hottest piece of ass on Azeroth
>when he's done he goes home and bangs Tyrande while being king of the druids
You what anon
raiders are harder to use in the context that you don't just dump it on a chokepoint or objective and then 98% of the time win the fight/take the objective because people puss out at a giant circle on the ground that barely does any damage
raiders don't do crazy damage either but they certainly will kill anyone squishy if a support doesn't immediately start helping them or an assassin doesn't break off to save them. Even if they don't kill the person, having a hero run around like a faggot while theres a fight going on is a positive thing, and if it leads to you winning a 4v5 teamfight then youve used raiders properly
Raiders take a bit of thought to decide who to use it on and when, it is not a "Push R-> person dies" ultimate in any sense
>We will be adding a new bundle to the shop that includes the Heroes and skins chosen by the winning team during the final match of the championship. The bundle will be available from November 17-24, in all regions, with the bundle price determined by the included items.

You don't want to get better, and deserve to be bronze
Mannaroth, Hunter Killers, Fenix as a dragoon, I want these heroes ASAP.
Maybe some supercool raid bosses from WoW.
Ragnaros as a Melle Warrior, Malchazzar as a melle Warrior, Gruul as a Tank,
These are my ideas and they are the best ideas and nobody elses ideas are as good as mine.

>implying you won't do it naturally unless you're literally retarded
fuck man. I'm the bottom of the fucking barrel dust league, and even this is too bronze for me
there are voice references to rag in game. I think Li Li has a line for killing him.
They just have to scale him down, see also Sindragosa, raynors raiders, ultralisk, and so on
I don't know if it's a bug or something but yu actually don't have to hit the final swing. It works like an aoe and every one on the radius gets effected. I usually take it unless the team has a big tank like Johanna or Muradin because Leech fucks them over.
Azmodan is like 6 times the size of Sonya in Diablo 3 but he's barely twice her size in HotS.
a siege tank is around 4 times the size of a marine but Raynor is taller than Hammer
hero scale is fucked, and it's not the only thing keeping anyone out
that doesn't mean he'll get in
fuck there's data about the overmind and short of making a hero where you 'build' (or otherwise expand somehow) spawn creeps to push lanes, and even control those creeps to an extent he wouldn't make any sense
haha you are right i just tried it, i had about 10% health against 3 heroes with almost full healths and i popped the hyperion and they immediately stopped following me and ran as fast as they could
>queue in QM as Tyrande
>Abathur in the other game
find me a better feel, other than sniping that fag
>Kael will never have ignite again.
As long as he has chain bomb he always be good but it's just not the same. A shame this isn't hearthstone because then he would have never been nerfed.
who is that faggot hero with that green knife who always teleport to me all invisible and shit and instakills me with full health? that is broken OP as fuck how am i even supposed to defend against ridiculous shit like that
or you can stop being literally blind, it's not like he's actually 100% invisible like Tass
>getting Zeratooled as Raynor
okay, so you're going out of your way to play as badly as possible with the one character who can survive basically everything. wow.
You aren't going to know where he's at all the time. If he's just moving in a lane yeah easy to see, but if he's doing that then he's a bad Zeratul anyway so who cares.
Hell the best way to tell is the person you laning against. He all of sudden gets more confident starts trying to attack you more it's probably because Zera just came over and is ready to attack.
>the next character will be Arcturus Mengsk
Literally who? All I know is it's some Starcraft character. Sounds like Abathur v2 with the command centre bullshit. Where my Warcraft heroes at?
Yeah cause if he's hiding in the shadows or a bush it's really fucking easy to tell he's there. Also standing still no ripple effect. So if he's in position waiting while your off screen you have no idea. If they are moving around like crazy like fucking idiots. Yes very easy to see, but like I said if they are doing that outside of a fight they probably suck anyways.
They give a tiny one but it's no where near as noticeable. Bottom line best way to counter Zera don't push the lane hard unless you see him elsewhere on the minimap.
Nova is terrible and doesn't matter anyway.
Or just pick Sonya. She destroys Zera.
Yesterday I wanted to play some Raynor games as I suck with Assassins and I hear he is good nowadays. Even though we won the second game, both games were absolutely miserable due to a Zeratul. I was dying CONSTANTLY, I had 9 deaths the secon game, 9. With the easiest hero in the game.
It was so frustrating. I did fall into the trap of "oh, I can 1v1 this guy, oh fuck, Zeratul 1v2, burst, dead" early game, but late game, he seemed to manage to be behind the frontline in teamfights suddenly, I explode and he hops out. Sometimes my team made it into a 1 for 1 trade, but I was still dead half the time.
I know my map awareness must be piss poor for this to happen, but sometimes even when I see the shimmer I get fucked up.
How do I get good?
Against Zeratul, and invisible assasins in general, a nice counter is to move sticked to your team
Also, if you play as Raynor, you could increase your passive's effects for making more difficult for Zera to burst you down. Bullseye can help with that stun too
I dont play much Raynor, that's all I can try to help :c
>get accepted into Overwatch
>get ready to play a game
>literally everyone is children
fuck this world, i'm gonna go yoloqueue Gaz
Why are pajamathurs always the worst abathurs?
Like you see that skin and you just know that guy is shit at abathur
conversely, why are skelethurs the best abathurs?
Like you see the skelethur and just know that guy has a wonderful grasp on the hero and excellent aesthetic taste
if the hero is 4k or below buy with coins, 7 or 10 buy with cash
in b4 >good goy
the only master skin worth it is thrall, nova, and jaina. Honorable mentions to Raynor, Tass, Sylvanas, and TLV
That being said, 0 master skins are worth the gold
I love Tassadizzle's Master Skin. I also love that Anubis one in gold color.
>Illidan goes full hunt build when we have no tank.
The Vikings really can carry almost anything on the right map huh?
Against a team with heroes like zeratul give me more is sometimes a good idea to pick up. Depends on your healer. Also against zeratul I usually get double stun. Giant killer is only really worth it against double tank
So i tried asmodan and i love that shit, it's hilarious when i stand next to some hero, pop the life sucking beam on him and he tries so hard to kill me but my his life slowly goes down and my does no since i'm stealing his i racked up so many kills like that, fun as fuck
Not him but the leveling just takes so fucking long, even with Stimpack and playing with friends and on xp holidays.
matchmaking is what it is, everyone has experiences with how it sucks
I for one, HAVE to solo queue in HL. If i have a friend of similar skill level it pairs me with completely inept retards. and for some reason when i solo it doesn't
that being said matchmaking sucks and can be blamed for everything
Its just tiring. I can't have fun because I know my MMR is plummeting because I keep getting matched with AFKer's and people I'm convinced are blind for how often they see enemies or objectives.

Healer picks depend on enemy team mostly. Only exception is really uther because he has AE heal, ST heal and stun so he fits into everything. Rehgar is good against anything with a lot of AE
