Hello Garrett and Kyle (or DunkTrain?),
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe I would see the day where people, even hesitantly, would make remarks that Blizzard is developing content too fast. The craziest part is that I can't say I disagree with you. Don't get me wrong though, I love the amount of effort Team 1 is putting into this game and I don't want them to stop. I think instead they could alter the pace at which they release said content.
Currently they are sticking to their 3 week release schedule for new heroes and each of those patches typically comes with a pretty heavy balance update. Do you think that changing their 3 week schedule to a 6 week schedule and releasing two heroes at a time would benefit the game and community? I can see them possibly having a harder time pinpointing balance issues if they release two heroes as opposed to one but I think giving the players a month and a half between massive updates would give the players more of a sense of stability.
Would love to hear your thoughts. Keep up the good work.
Hey guys! Love the show and recent proud patron. You rock.
I was reviewing a match replay of mine, in which I was playing Artanis in Infernal Shrines. It's 6 minutes into the game (so we still all have our outer walls) and the enemy team takes a siege camp that starts pushing mid.
My whole team was bot fighting the enemy team 4v4, so I leave top to defend mid. I attacked the minions first, so that they don't reach the towers and waste ammo and then cleared the camp, but I have to ask, was that the right move? Or should I have cleared the camp first and left the minions to the towers while I join the team fight?
In hindsight, we won that match and that team fight didn't cause any deaths, but I'd like to hear your higher-than-silver thoughts. -glhf
Hey Nexus hosts!
I just got into Heroes and this podcast after the Overwatch Nexus podcast. Huge fan of the show already as I was pleased to hear your voices after having listened to your Starcraft 2 show ages ago.
Getting down to business, my girlfriend, a fantastic brightwing, gall, and nazeebo player is having trouble learning how to effectively team fight as a melee character.
She's a decent Johanna, but every time she tries to learn any other melee character, especially assassins like Butcher, she gets creamed in engagements and feels lost. I suggested she tries Varian during this week's rotation.
Any tips? You folks always have such great insights.
