    Been playing a combination of HL & QM lately, all solo queue. HL for when I feel like a good game and QM for when I just want to muck around with a non meta hero.

    Leveled Azmo to 10 yesterday in QM and at one stage had a 7 game win streak with him. Once I got comfortable with him it surprised me how strong he could be in QM. I was out pushing Sylv, Zag & Hammers and constantly pushing even with a lot of 1 v 2 in my lane early game. Even in team fights he could really do some damage, drop a black pool and death beam them up. Was dropping heroes like illi in no time. And nothing more satisfying then a well timed globe that takes out those heroes who probably thought they had safely escaped.

    Got my HL win rate back up to 55%, currently on a 8 game win streak in HL, after I had the worse run when I first started HL, I think I was 2 from 20 :lol:.

    Thinking of buying either TLV's or Thrall, own 22 or 23 heroes now and have 18k gold. Vikings look strong but I am not sure will enjoy the mirco managing side of 3 heroes, found Thrall fun in QM during free week rotation but can't say I ever see him in HL.

    They don't say by how much. We've got it fairly decent in the store at the moment, with everything slightly cheaper than the US prices, but with fluctuations with the currency conversion, why not just charge us USD? If our dollar rises again, lets say early 2017 ;), how long until those prices are lowered for us?

    I'd much rather they switch us to the US dollar and be done with it so that way any rises and falls are automatically dealt with. NZ is already there so just go that way.

    Doesn't it currently work in our favor pricewise though?

    Currently yes until they adjust the prices to be inline with whatever they believe due to current exchange rate then it wont. I can guarantee if things change dollar wise it wont be shifted back.

    ** images in next post with actual skill text now **

    I'm guessing the "stunned" label is going to be new as well.

    Excuse my sarcasm but oh boy another Warcraft character? Where is my StarCraft warrior; I'm over having 'complete 2 games as a StarCraft character' and 'complete 2 games as a warrior' and having to play four games instead of two to complete my dailies.

    Deckard Cain as a hero? What's he going to do, throw his book at you?

    Abathur style except instead of any actual active abilities he just tells you stories.

    A gimme for Deckard is an ultimate called "Stay a while and listen...". Behavior would have to be combination of Gazlow's Grav-o-bomb and ETC's moshpit.
