    The Nexus Challenge starts tomorrow, be sure to play 30+ games with any friends for maximum goodies, and if they're older players, be sure to let them recruit you for both yours and their benefit!
    You CAN cheese the 15+ wins with AI (everyone rushes one lane), but where the fun in that?
    Good luck in the challenge!

    Dunk I've been giving my RAF out, you should give out yours on here so you could maybe get the Vulture.
    I editted out mine earlier to give ya a chance

    But that sounds good, later we could play some Cho'gall games
    At least five games a night sound good? That way it'll get tackled in 3-6 days, and it also means you won't get burnt out.

    You did good too, we're 1/3s of the way to Zarya and Oni Genji, at least.
    I'm hoping to get Master Cho'gall eventually, when I get to level 10, we'll look pretty good, haha.

    Ragnaros is fun to play, Lil' Ragnaros is worth it too, overall I'm glad he was the first char I got the bundle of.
    Anyway, my gaming schedule is anywhere from 12PM- 12 AM
    I don't play MOBAs after Midnight as a matter of principal, because you're bound to run into more skilled players, and you're also bound to get more salty due to dwindling energy.
    Just note me on here or on Bnet (You can send offline messages, right?) and I should heed your call.

    Blizzard doesn't have enough powerful names for a game like that

    That's a pretty nice list, but keep in mind that list is from roughly Mid-2016, lots of things can change in development and also shift things around, the complaints about "Warcraft Assassins" has no doubt caused Warcraft chars and Assassins to be shuffled to come out later, for example, so the Supports/Specialists/Warriors have a better chance now.
    Also, That list is missing Grommash Hellscream, Both Garrosh and Grommash are under consideration

    True, but they're some of the longest running and most influential franchises in their respective genres (hell, Warcraft was a massive influence on two genres).

    Before he left for another project, Dustin Browder basically confirmed Warcraft will always have a stronger presence than other games, and for very good reason.
    Let's see...
    Starcraft: 2 games, one of which has 3 massive games together, some books
    Diablo: 3 games, some books.
    Warcraft: 3 games, an MMORPG (with 7 expansions), a card game, a comic, a bunch of books, a movie.
    Overwatch: 1 game.

    Yyyyyyyyyyyeah. Warcraft's pool of characters is way deeper than all 4 of the other games.

    You know, people on other boards keep telling me that the next hero is a Support character.

    But I can't find any evidence of such things.

    So, maybe I just feel for some rumor.

    So, uh.

    People found this: http://imgur.com/a/DqMyB

    This implies that Stukov is next.

    Which is AWESOME. I thought/wanted him to be next.

    I thought ti was just an Abathur Locust nest, but the comparison is pretty good
    I wouldn't be surprised, Stukov's voice actor had to have been in the studio while recording dialogue for the Starcraft 2 co-op commander (Same thing happened with Alarak)

    So, how do Blizzard gift cards work?

    If I wanted to use the money from one to buy a hero or something, do I apply it to the Blizzard store, do I hit the "pay with money" icon and then punch in the code, or what?

    I'm thinking about getting a bundle and the new hero.

    Here's Lucio's kit.

    Trait

    Wall Ride (D)

    When moving alongside impassable terrain, Lúcio can walk through other units, and his Movement Speed is increased by 20%. This effect stacks with other Movement Speed bonuses.

    Basic Abilities

    Soundwave (Q)

    Deal damage to enemies in a cone-shaped area and knock them back.

    Crossfade (W)

    Play one of two tracks that passively provide allied Heroes with either a Speed Boost or a Healing Boost in a large radius around you. Activate Crossfade to swap tracks.

    Healing Boost: Restore a small amount of Health every second to Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes.

    Speed Boost: Increase the Movement Speed of Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes by 15%.

    Amp It Up (E)

    Raise Lúcio’s Crossfade track volume for 3 seconds, amping Speed Boost to 45% increased Movement Speed, and significantly increasing the Healing rate of Healing Boost.

    Heroic Abilities

    Sound Barrier (R)

    After 1 second, Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes gain a massive Shield that rapidly decays over the next 6 seconds.

    Reverse Amp (R)

    Blast Lúcio’s Crossfade track at enemy Heroes for 4 seconds, causing Healing Boost to inflict damage every second, and Speed Boost to Slow Movement Speed by 45%.

    Passive: Increase Amp It Up’s duration to 4 seconds.

    PLay 15+ games as a Warcraft Hero (WITH A FRIEND) for a free mount in Heroes, and a free mount in Warcraft
    Needless to say you can grind vs AI games again or you can do it legit

    Also, Lucio's launch skin is Ribbit, sadness.
