    Marauder clan proposed scrim

    As fun as it sounds, I think some people will end up taking it too seriously, and that's unavoidable.

    FML Tournament #3

    My availability depends on whether I'll be able to get off work early or not, so I won't be able to commit to a team. Maybe I can be a sub, or show up and get placed on a team with other soloQs.

    PAX Prime this weekend!

    I'm very curious to see how Asia competes with the west. Vastly different meta from each side.

    KT chain bomb take-down explanation - learn it, use it, pwn all.....

    Sylvannas' unstable poison behaved the same way, and then they nerfed it so that each target can only be hit by the explosion once. I figure this is going to be fixed in the same way.

    Is the monk going to have a high place in the meta?

    Stats can always be tuned, but concept-wise, Kharazim will be very strong, and we're gonna see a lot of him in competitive. The reason why Kharazim is strong is because he has so much early game mobility, damage, and also gives a movespeed buff. In competitive, the early game is dominated by...

    Longest Game?

    When to do boss

    You want to take a boss when you have enough of an advantage to take a boss safely, but not a fort. The main purpose of the boss is to let it split push another lane while you attack a fort, or allow you to attack with the boss, negating the enemy's home field advantage while attacking a fort...

    List of heroes not to be picked/used

    I'm fine with any hero in QM, except for Tassadar and Tyrande. I wouldn't be surprised if those two heroes have less than 25% win rate in QM. Blizzard enforcing equal number of supports on each side has really shafted those two heroes. It's nearly impossible to win without a healer in higher...
