Hearthstone Mount Now Available!

Image title
New, awesome looking, mount is finally available! It is available to everyone who has won 100 games in Hearthstone. This rule is retroactive, meaning that if you haven’t played much Hearthstone lately, like i did, but got 100 wins in the past, you’ll end up receiving a card mount. As for the players that didn’t play Hearthstone at all, or don’t have needed amount of wins - don’t worry, there is no time limitations, you can safely grind your wins and receive a mount in the future!

Archangel of Hope not to be included in the upcoming content for the Eternal Conflict event!

Image title
Recently, developers confirmed on Twitter that they have no plans to include Auriel in the game, as a part of Eternal Conflict expansion. That doesn’t mean that she won’t be introduced at all. So, we can guess and hope!

Goblin kill counts toward whole team like takedowns do!

Image title
Dustin Browder, Game Director on Heroes of the Storm, has confirmed that killing the Treasure Goblin counts for the whole team, letting everyone complete the special daily quest and get the portrait reward, and it doesn’t matter who actually killed the Goblin! Treasure hunting is about to begin!

Kerrigan Fury Swipes + Battle Momentum bug has returned!

Image title
This time you need an enabler for the bug to work. And the enabler is the level 20 talent - Nexus Blades. So, if you skill Fury Swipes and Battle Momentum and Nexus Blades, your auto-attacks will reduce the cooldown of abilities on more than 0.5 sec, depends on how much units you will hit. For example, if you hit 4 units with auto-attack, the cooldowns will be reduced by 2 seconds. Despite looking like it is huge deal for Kerrigan, i don’t see it being played massively. Reason is simple. The power of Kerrigan fades the more the game progresses, and on level 20, with many heroes getting blinks and other powerful talents, you won’t find yourself auto-attacking much thus nullifying the power of this bug. Actually, it’s a funny build for the Quick Matches, but other than that i don’t see it coming into play for the reasons mentioned above.

Next week sale announced!

Image title
Sales of the next week are rumored to be not as exciting as previous two were. First of all, it is the amount of items on sale dropping down to 3, as it was pre-launch. And second, it’s Arthas on sale, the hero that has been abandoned for a long time now, both in competitive and casual play. Sadly, you rarely see him nowadays.

Heroes we don’t respect but should

Image title
Recently, GosuGamers posted nice opinion article about the underrated heroes. Read it to know what Heroes of the Storm editorial crew thinks about current meta and what heroes, in their opinion, are underrated, and should be played more, or treated more seriously. The one hero, from the article, i would definitely agree upon is Nova. With the current double tank meta, she is a viable choice for punishing back-line squishes, and Puszek Team showed her potential versus Team Liquid in the ETS Playoffs.
