Heroes of the Storm

If you understand the difference between a top-laner and a jungler, this might be the place for you.

Should work well assuming you leave packing your PC till last :P

Apart from characters with good sustain, symbioting a ranged character is another thing I try to stick to. The Abathur thing doesn't work so well on Haunted Mine I find and Dragon Shire breaks the symbiosis if the AI character is the one who becomes the dragon knight. Temple of the Spider Queens usually works best. At beginner AI, the enemy team doesn't hand in jack.

LOL. it happens. Sometimes Mines will still work if your team composition is strong. One time I was just about to have dinner and so left it on Mines and it worked. But for most of the times I've tried Mines, yeah, the AFK time would kick in at some point.

If your choices aren't particularly good, it doesn't hurt to remake till you get someone like Raynor or Gul'dan. Zarya also works pretty well.

Yeah, if you're walking past it's not a bad idea to check to make sure it's going well.

Better than losing 10-15min having to do another game if the AFK timer kicks in.

That's 8 games for this evening! Abathur's such a crap AI team mate but for farming gold, he's so useful. Guess every character has its uses.

2.0 has gone live! ~1.2Gb patch for download required.

New cinematic is pretty cool and also showcases the other new hero being released:



Nexus Challenge 2.0 details:



Basically more OW unlocks via playing with friends (definitely getting Abathur on all the other accounts now!). This time they're breaking it down to 5 games per week over 3 weeks.

First week is that Orochi hovercycle they gave away the first time around along with some other cosmetics.

Weeks 2 and 3 have new mounts and cosmetics and are primarily D. Va themed.

Week 4 you unlock 10x loot boxes in both OW and HOTS.

Unfortunately, week 2-4 require 5 games with a friend each week but vs AI isn't a mode that's supported. I'm gonna piss off a lot of QM players with playing two accounts at the same time.

Claimed my freebie bundle now! Also sitting on 41 loot chests... 33 of which are Epic ones and 3 that are Veteran ones.

EDIT: Be sure to claim your bundle first before opening loot boxes. You may get a hero or two from the purple loot boxes. These won't be reimbursed from the bundles but you get 100 shards or so from the loot boxes if they're duplicates. I got Chen and Kerrigan on my alt accounts loot boxes, both of which are dupes. I think I had 7 or so purple loot boxes so the chances seems decent.

Will see how lucky I get with the 33 on my main account tonight.

At least my roster is filled out a bit more.

Yeah, the deal was only for one pack and the rest gets disabled unfortunately. Hopefully you didn't have most of the heroes in your pack. I got an average deal with only 10 heroes not in my roster at best.

Just opened all my loot chests. Rolled a hero 6 times but unfortunately no heroes that I already didn't have. If anyone wanna see how my RNG went....

From 5x normal and 33x epic chests

Skins: High Templar Zeratul, Grunty Murky, Crimson Stitches, Voidclaw Rehgar, Wanderer Chen, N'zoth Alarak, Roller Derby Nova, Dragon Brightwing, Vengeance Valla, Scarlet and Canary Striker Li-Ming, Hierarch Artanis, Test Model Purifier Artanis, Fel Queen Chromie, Deadwalker Cassia, Neo Star Queen Li-Ming, Mag'har Storm Wolf Rehgar, Head Chef Stitches, Old Marshall Raynor, Cheerleader Kerrigan, Northern Champion Lunara, Love Bug Anub'arak, Delta Squad Medic Uther, Explorer LiLi, Death God Arthas, Betrayer Illidan, Pirate Queen Cassia, Pure Country ETC, Spectre and Emerald Thunder Guard Zarya, Twilight Shogun Artanis, Monarch Brightwing, Burning Blade Samuro, Master Dragon Genji, Cyberhawk Kael'thas, Star Princess Li-Ming, Landwalker Murky, Spectre Tracer, Ordermaster Valla, Harlequin Nazeebo, Neon War World Sgt Hammer, Seraphim Tyrael, Super Sonya, Hellhammer Thrall, Knight Owl Medivh,

Duplicates: Illidan, 2x Arthas, Royal Armoured War Steed, Steel Cyber Wolf, Muradin, Zagara, Ragnaros,

Mounts: verdant, red and turquoise Magic Carpet, Steel Cyber Wolf, Teal, Saddled Battle Beast, Hunter Felsaber Demon,

Announcers: Stitches

From 3x veteran chests:

Mount: Judgement Charger
Skins: Dark Seraphim Tyrael, Toxic Prime Evil Diablo, Azure Daelaam Artanis, Throwback Tracer, Lil' Ragnaros

No rerolls for any of them. Not too shabby considering the Cyber Wolf and Felsaber mounts are two I really like. Also really wanted the Country ETC, and Marshall Raynor skins.

I think I'll do the Nexus Challenge 2.0 event first, open the remaining loot boxes from that and then purchase my remaining heroes I don't have. Sitting on 1,240 shards atm and my Abathur is lvl50 ;-)

Nice one guys! (well, the 4x leg characters could have been ones you didn't have Art but the shards would have been pretty sweet from them)

I need to hit the sack early tonight as I'm taking mum to the hospital early tomoz. Happy to hit up anyone who wants to do the Nexus Challenge.

I think the Wildlands week 2 challenges should be out too now.

I'm usually on at this time of night - give or take half an hour or so for kids bedtimes.

Tanks and bruisers bundle as that was the one missing the most (7) for me - that and sup/special bundle (6 not claimed) had Uther - who I really dont enjoy.

Chest wise - 3 vet, 5 loot and 39 epic. Voice lines/sprays aside, got:
Veteran: Prototype Mecha Dehaka; Purifier Artanis; Crimson Cyb'arak Anub; Probius
Basics: Stormwind Tyrande; Diablo Announcer
Epics: Belf Tyrande; Sakura Auriel; Wanderer Chen, Hellhammer Thrall, Horde Direwolf mount; Pearl Shadowpaw Lili; Crimson Warbear; SPectre Tracer; Betrayer Malf; Star Princess Liming; Fel Iron Butcher; Crypt King Tass; Bone Necro Xul, Sous Chef Stitches; Cyberhawk KT; Daelaam Art; Hellboar mount; Zerg Hunter Zeratul; Magic Carpet mount, Waywatcher Malf; Dark Seraphim Tyrael; Hellblade Samuro; Love Dr Morales; Frost Emberlord Zuljin; Felsaber mount; Ronin Zera; Serpent King Xul; Oni Genji; Gazlowe Announcer; Love Bug Anub; Toxic Prime Evil Diablo; Super Sonya; Stormpunk KT; Space Lord's Starbreaker mount; Pallid AzGul'dan - some weird looking Azmo/Gul'dan hybrid; Tass Announcer; Albino Bunny Murky

The Diablo announcer ought to be good.

I was hoping for Azmo Dunk skin too but no luck there. My Abathur leveled up last night and another loot box spawned. One rare skin, nothing spectacular but it should be easy getting loot boxes with Abathur.

Bloody hell!

I thought I'd be crafty and do week 1 of the challenge using my main and alt account (so I get the hoverbike skins on these accounts) then weeks 2-4 challenges on my main and my bro's accounts (since these have an OW license on them).... and now I've just realised that you need to do Week 1 in order to access Week 2, etc!

Guess I'm doing Week 1 on my bro's account too then.

Be sure to grab the mega bundles on other regions while you can... just in case you have to play on those regions with friends overseas or something.

Went through the 5 weekly games tonight with 3 mates, and got the Genji skin and stuff.
Was some good fun games against the AI. I even got MVP in 1 game...
