Team Responds to the Release of Another Warcraft Assassin

Team Responds to the Release of Another Warcraft Assassin -

The Heroes of the Storm forum has been agitated after the announcement of the release of the next hero, Valeera Sanguinar, a Warcraft Assassin character. Players are wondering why so many 1) Warcraft heroes; and 2) so many Assassin heroes have been released into the game. In answer, Blizzard's Lead Hero Designer Kent-Erik Hagman responded with a lengthy post explaining the hero design process and how the decisions have been made with regard to the release of heroes into the game.

We realize that unleashing so many Warcraft assassins back to back wasn’t the best decision in terms of hero diversity, and isn’t quite as exciting for those of you who don’t necessarily enjoy assassins as much as the other roles.

Now that Valeera is out in the wild, we think you’re going to be pretty happy with the rest of the heroes we have planned for 2017. The feedback you, the community, has provided us has greatly influenced our planning. You can definitely expect more diversity in terms of both role and universe compared to 2016. I would hope that in January of 2018, we’ll be able to look back and see a much wider offering of Heroes (including, yes, Supports!).
