FAVORITE PLAY OF THE WEEK
Kali: I saw a true penta and we got 20 straight kills in one game to which the announcer yelled, “HERO OF THE STORM!” I thought that was pretty badass. Never heard that one before. Which actually reminds me, I think Blizzard took my advice because the celebratory kill emotes seem to be more pronounced, have either of you noticed that also?
Kali: I went 27-0 as Valla. We whooped them so hard that the match didn’t even hit 15 minutes. I posted about it on our Facebook page and Twitter.
Blizzard will be at Pax East on March 6 @ 10:30a ET hosting a Heroes panel. (Add any other info from CGM press releases – saw emails about CGM people attending for coverage? Adam said he would be there)
Kali: I saw an interesting map tactic on Dragonshire that I wanted to share. I posted a link to the video on my Youtube in the show notes so you can watch and see what I mean (start watching at about 44:00 to about 44:30). I was solo mid lane against 2 opponents. They went south of me in the jungle so I didn’t see them, into the merc camp that is positioned under the first gate. While standing there, they were able to destroy our fountain pretty darn quick and there was nothing I could do, solo, to stop them. There were a few times in team fights there where the fountain would have been really useful.
Kali: Here is what I know from playing all week long: healers OP, especially Li Li (if played properly). It meant winning or losing in almost every match I played.
I’ve also noticed a lot of people talking about who should go in what lane on certain maps and from the beginning of matches stating “our comp is bad.” The metas are coming…
