      • All players who have joined a chat channel are now listed under that channel’s name on the right side of the chat panel, along with their portrait, Battletag, and current status.

        • Additionally, players can cycle through the list of chat channels they have open by pressing Ctrl + Tab and Ctrl + Shift + Tab.
    • Custom Game Lobby Links
      • Players in Custom Game lobbies can now create a clickable link and share it in chat channels to allow others to join the lobby.

    Loading Screens

    • Portrait Border Display
      • Loading Screens will now only display portrait borders that are relevant to each play mode. Each loading screen will display portrait borders as follows:

    Design and Gameplay

    Matchmaking

    • A new Warrior rule has been added to Quick Match that now prevents teams that do not have a Warrior hero from being matched with teams that do have a Warrior.

    A.I. Improvements

    • General
      • AI players will now move more efficiently on offense and retreat.
      • Slight improvements have been made to the way that AI players will perform several map objectives.
    • Difficulty-Specific Improvements
      • Adept AI will now choose Talents from pre-defined Talent builds, much like Veteran and Elite AI do already.
      • Elite AI will now focus their attacks on low Health enemies and chase more often.

         Return to Top

    Heroes

    Tassadar

    • Plasma Shield (Q)
      • Can now be cast on allies located in the Hall of Storms

    Artanis

    • Basic Attack range increased by 25%
    • Phase Prism (E)
      • Range and speed have each been increased by 15%

    Developer Comments: Artanis was having a harder time sticking to opponents than we’d like.  This was hurting his ability to disrupt the enemy team and his ability to survive.  We feel that a slight increase to his base kit will help alleviate this issue, while maintaining a lot of the playstyle (and counterplay) that we currently enjoy.  The increased range on Phase Prism and his Basic Attacks should help him feel better to play, and help him more successfully fulfill his aggressive Warrior role.

    These changes are intentionally slight, as we feel Artanis is very close to being extremely powerful in today’s game.

     

    Cho

    • Basic Attack damage increased from 110 to 120
    • Base Health increased from 3360 to 3528
    • Base Health Regeneration increased from 7 to 7.35 per second

    Developer Comments: Cho’gall’s win rate has been trending up since his release, but it is still a bit lower than we’d like. We have plans to improve Cho’gall with Talent changes in the future, but we wanted to give him a small buff before then.

    Bug Fixes

    Heroes and Talents

    • Azmodan’s Globe of Annihilation will now deal the correct amount of damage while under the effects of Black Pool and the Taste for Blood Talent.
      • This fix will also resolve incorrect damage amounts for similar Talent interactions, such as Muradin’s Storm Bolt with the Sledgehammer and Perfect Storm Talents, as well as Falstad’s Gathering Storm and Overdrive Talents.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause Leoric’s Drain Hope to end prematurely.
    • Fixed several situations in which summoned units could return directly to lane rather than continuing to attack nearby enemies while capturing a Mercenary Camp.
    • Tychus’ Hero model will no longer disappear after capturing a Fort on the Towers of Doom Battleground.
    • Artanis’ Purifier Beam will no longer track Murky back to his Egg if Murky was killed just as the Ability was cast.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause Brightwing’s Phase Shield to be applied to Cho’gall inconsistently.
    • Diagonally placed Shrubs will no longer sometimes fail to properly hide a Hero within.
    • Fixed an issue which could allow Cho’gall to regenerate Health after using Consuming Blaze on certain destructible objects.
    • Punishers on the Infernal Shrines Battleground will no longer fly outside the playable area after leaping into Zeratul’s Void Prison.

    User Interface

    • Allied Minion status bars will no longer appear green when they are missing Health.
    • Resolved some cases in which Hero League games could incorrectly flag players to receive leaver penalties.
    • Pressing the Enter key while casting certain Abilities will no longer cause the key to behave as though it is stuck.

    Assolutamente d'accordo col l'aumento del range degli autoattack di Artanis del 25% e con l'aumento del range d'azione del prisma. Tutto questo renderà Artanis ancora più forte e divertente da giocare imo.
    Andare ad aumentare determinate stats di Cho'gall solo perché la win rate non è stabile o non raggiunge una percentuale ideale per la Blizzard non è comunque un buon motivo per buffare questi eroi... Al momento, se usato in maniera ottimale, è il champion più broken del gioco.

    Non proprio.
    1. E' troppo situazionale in base alle mappe.
    2. Eroi come Raynor o Leoric se non lo battono già 2v1 in pari numero lo neutralizzano tranquillamente.

    E' normale credere che sia rotto quando, gankandovi, vi uccide... siete sempre e comunque contro due giocatori... un Kael'thas + Eroe qualsiasi vi scioglierebbero addirittura più velocemente.

    Fin ora qualsiasi cosa + support era meglio, ma poi, comunque, non è che siano stati incrementati chissa quali numeri... bisogna vedere se effettivamente sale.

    Per concludere: tutto questo sta a dimostrare che HotsLogs parla chiaro, per chi ancora ne dubitasse fino ad oggi.

    Che Artanis avesse un range di attacco inferiore alla media dei melee era risaputo, lo leggevo spesso nei forum US.
    Il prisma pure, era un abilità pressochè inutile a meno che qualcuno non ce lo avessi attaccato.
    L'hanno semplicemente reso giocabile... forse.
    Rimane cmqe senza escapes.

    Provato Lunara sul server USA, carina, niente di che, ma come al solito la modalità prova non ti da l'idea di niente. 15k non li merita (nemmeno 10k secondo me), dovrebbero cominciare a ponderare i prezzi d'uscita e post uscita.

    Una curiosità, entrando nel server usa, prima che apparisse la schermata di Lunara c'era quella di Genn Greymane. Nello shop ho notato qualche nuovo pacchetto.

    Io ho visto un paio di stream su Lunara... Sembra utile in teamfight grazie ai debuff ma a me, personalmente, non convince proprio. Di debuff e di danno fatto da un Assassin a distanza ce n'è solo uno e si chiama Living bomb @Vlad78 Kappa 0

    @Grevier A me stava sul membro...mi fregavano spesso con quel prisma (grip e ti trovavi nel team nemico esplodendo). Non l'ho mai provato però,non so...so solo che dopo l'altro ieri ho riscoperto il mio amore per stitchy <3

    Lunara usata da grubby fino a poco fa, pare molto forte e con team utility,Nova e Zeratul bestemmiano ancora. Il globo che da vision e' una gran cosa,il Dot pure, e' ovviamente fatta di cartone piu' di una Jaina rofl
    La proverò,a 15k non prendo nessuno pero':P
    Artanis ora ha un range importante del prisma,che in Effetti, perculare pe @Vylneron a parte,ci stava :D

    @Yardeh

    e si può anche provare Graymane... Molto, molto, molto bello...
    Al livello 20, contro il manichino, aveva un DPS di quasi 500 in forma umana e quasi 900 in forma di lupo...
    Gli attacchi base in forma umana, con dei talenti, riescono a fare dei notevoli danni radiali, pulendo un'onda di minions in due o tre colpi...
    Ottima la possibilità di colpire da lontano, sfiancare e poi saltare al collo per terminare il lavoro... Solo che il range di questo salto, senza talenti, è abbastanza corto, ma c'è un talento per questo :P

    Ecco finita la scimmia per Lunara è appena salita a 1000 quella per il licantropo.
    Maledetti.

    @Vlad78
    ma a gente come grubby anche se gli dai solo uno dei tre vichinghi ti svolta la partita :D
    Non vale...

    @peppeg lo so cosa intendi rofl Ma vale invece,come ho sempre sostenuto,il valore di un champ lo vedi in mano a chi lo usa al suo massimo potenziale, quindi al pro. Se non rende a me,giocatore medio, non significa che il champ è da buttare,ma che non sono sufficientemente capace io :P 1
