This is for day 24 of Blaugust.
Here are my highly detailed and scientific observations about how the different Heroes rank.
The Most OverPowered heroes
Criteria: These are heroes that make me sad when I see the opposing team has picked them.
Jaina – Not so much her on her own, but once she gets that Water Elemental she’s a real pain the ass.
Kael’thas – His ability to blow up everyone makes up for his squishiness. Once he get to higher levels he does a ton of damage. Paired with Jaina? Oof.
Kharazim – He does way too much healing for a damage dealer. Or way to much damage for a healer. Likelihood of nerf in next patch? High.
Leoric – Does way too much damage for a tank. Undying the most annoying ability ever.
The Most Underpowered Heroes
Criteria: These are heroes that make me sad when I see the my team has picked them.
Gazlowe – Gaz is really clutch at interrupting people who are trying to collect a tribute or hand in dubloons. Otherwise… I’d prefer any other specialist.
Tassadar – He’s kind of half a support, and I’m always confused as to whether I should pick a real support when someone takes this guy. Doesn’t do much damage or healing. He’s good at finding Nova and, in my experience, yelling at the rest of the team for not utilizing his shields properly.
The Lost Vikings – Does anyone play these well? Though honestly, I think I’ve seen them in maaaaybe 1 ranked match. Ever.
Sgt. Hammer – I love you Hammer, but you’re bait in a ranked match.
The Heroes Most Dependent on Player Skill
These heroes are wildcards. It totally depends on who is playing them.
Murky – Some Murkys soak up XP like a mofo. Some Murkys leave their egg in the base the entire game.
Nova – A good Nova is likely to go 40-0. Let them get to level 20, and she’s going to kill you and your entire family. A bad Nova rides their pony around for the entire game OR spends a lot of time shooting creeps.
What do you think? What characters make you cringe when you see they’ve been picked?
