Grubby gives thoughts on February, 10 Balance Update for Heroes

0 comments

Blizzard just released their Heroes of the Storm  -- Balance Update Notes for February 10, 2016. 

I'll chip in with my first impressions. I have not tested or played with the new changes yet, but I feel pretty good about them in general. I don't agree on everything though. Let's take a look!

You can read the exact changes here:
https://us.battle.net/heroes/en/blog/20008204/heroes-of-the-storm-balance-update-notes-february-10-2016-2-10-2016

Whereas Blizzard writes in exact damage numbers for level 0, I'll reflect the relative changes in percentages (%), to add understanding of how everything changed.

Falstad
- Level 7: BOOMerang (Q), 24% damage increase
- Level 10: Hinterland Blast (R), ~16% damage increase

Grubby's comments: Falstad right now is one of the best Heroes/Assassins in the game. His standard build is: https://www.heroesnexus.com/talent-calculator/11-falstad?filter-ptr=1#UOiPOOTOSOHPLAA. 

With this patch, Falstad will receive a significant buff to talents that are normally not used, BOOMerang and Hinterland Blast, and no nerfs. This increase theoretical talent diversity and options, buffing him has a Hero, as options are always a powerful thing to have. At level 16, his Hinterland Blast will deal 135 (863->998) more damage or 169 (1079->1248) more damage with Overdrive. At level 7, BOOMerang will explode for 37 (159->196) more damage than previous patch. 

With a 120s CD, I would probably still take Mighty Gust (40s CD) over Hinterland's Blast every time. With a 10s CD on Hammerang/BOOMerang, I would probably still take Seasoned Marksman + Secret weapon over Gathering Storm/BOOMerang every time.

    My current advice is: avoid @ZiggoWebcare like the plague. Nationwide Ziggo internet going down round the clock, they send a mechanic in half a day(good!) and it doesnt fix anything (bad!). Next mechanic in THREE days from now. Paying top dollar for this. Will update if they fix

    A @ZiggoWebcare mechanic visited this morning and replaced router and POA splitter. Tonight’s stream should be good, Mundead Monday, tests looked good so far!

    ...(2/2) and MY coax cable or signal! Just admit your disruption in service ziggo and fix it! My internet was fine for 6 months and was freshly installed by your engineer! Now it’s horrible and costing everyone their entertainment from my livestream!

    My internet from @ZiggoWebcare has been trash for a few days now and unreliable for a few weeks. My colleague @RotterdaM08 from THE OTHER SIDE of the country on same ISP has the EXACT same issue and their customer service think it’s HIS pc that’s at fault,... (1/2)

    I’ll monitor the stability and wait for one hour and then try again to stream. Internet disconnecting repeatedly
