If you understand the difference between a top-laner and a jungler, this might be the place for you.

Yeah if you're with a group that's willing to throw a few games, it's very quick. Just don't assume the other group is playing normally. If they're throwing too, you need to be lined up to push.

Ugh! Don't get me started on shards. Blizzard seems fixated on shards in both HOTS and D3... and neither game has been rewarding for me with shards lately.
Logical decision. Finally got me enough shards form duplicate items to afford the Abathur announcer :D.

Now you're guaranteed to get the Abathur announcer in your next loot box! - lol

I'd be tempted to pick up an announcer but I play with the volume off atm so as to not annoy mum. One day.

Get a good set of Headphones?

I want murky announcer but he's bloody expensive compared to others.

Same price as Abathur. I've just been using gold to get rerolls - helped to get more duplicates and extra shards :P.

I tried this once. My beard ruined the padding. I have thick hair so it's not a soft beard. My uncles and aunts use to get my (then) kid cousins to touch my beard (as no one else had a beard)... their kids would cry from being pricked by the beard. I dread the day I have a girlfriend again coz she'll make me shave regularly.

Get them to send a text message... mostly joking, mostly.

Games without a bit of sound are awfully dull, mostly play HOTS with skype or some sort of voice chat going too. Talking rubbish makes my gaming much more enjoyable, not sure about the people whom have to listen to said rubbish but eh...

I love the re-roll option. Went from 4 commons to 3 legendary and a rare. 2 legendaries were skins (both Brightwing), 1 announcer and rare was a spray. Fairly happy.

Seems like there's always an event going on in HOTS. And I suppose that's one reason why we keep playing it! Second anniversary event details:

Duration: Week of May 30 – June 12


Daily Quest: Play 1 game in VS. AI, Quick Match, Unranked, or Ranked
Reward: One Common Loot Chest Per Day


Event Quest: Play 3 Games in VS. AI, Quick Match, Unranked, or Ranked during the Anniversary Event
Rewards:
Anniversary Portrait
Anniversary Spray
Anniversary Banner

Image

Note: These anniversary items will be exclusive to this event and will not be available for Shard crafting or from Loot Chests.

http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/blog/207197734

Since loot chests are kinda addictive and better than the OW ones, yeah, I think I'll do one game per day :-)

Might even save em up and open them all in one big go!

The mega bundles expire on the 29th I believe so grab it if you haven't already.

WTF is up with all these Assassins?

Math would have been a good assassin/specialist multiclass. We need more of them.

Nope, it was supposedly a leak (aka someone fucked up) so they took it down.

Nah, not a leak. Needs a slash at the end:

Still not happy about all the Assassin focused heroes we mainly get. On the other hand, the next Assassin megabundle stands a good chance at having a lot of new characters compared to the other megabundles... yay for more Assassins! - lol

Hmmm, latest patch seems to have increased diversity amongst vs AI characters chosen... not the best for automating dailies with Abathur (getting a lot of AFK dropouts this weekend) but good for comp stomps at the very least.

This is last weekend for my stimpack... got about 8 loot boxes from all the leveling, probably 10+ by the time today is over. Will open them next week Friday night, just in case one of them gives me another stimpack - lol

Sitting on 16 loot boxes after leveling up a few heroes today. Also hit account level 390. Stimpack expires soon so going from lvl89-90 with Abathur will feel like grind. But I'll have about 20-ish loot boxes by the time the next weekend comes around so it's gonna fee like xmas.

Dear god man, level 89 with abathur, that's a heck of a lot of afk farming haha.
Was wondering what insane level you were up to with him.
Wonder what the highest level player is at the moment, have seen a few 500's.

The SC nuke map has some amusing issues with pathing when the AI start on the left, from AI running into the back of your bases right through to them trying to retreat to an area south of their main base, that's nowhere near the healing area. Bit bizarre. Not sure if that's elites only or just AI in general though. Seems to have been an issue for at least a week though.

That new cloud mount... :wtf:

Yeah, I think I was sub lvl50 at the start of 2.0 so 40 levels has been a lot of afk farming. It's the loot box addiction I reckon.

There's been some weird AI pathing indeed. They keep hearthing back to base when they should be pushing the core at times. At least xp continues to accumulate for a bit longer!
