EPIC WINS/FAILS

Ril:  Cheating is definitely an epic fail. In a previous episode, we talked about a map hack which allowed players to see through the fog of war, showcased by a Nova player getting kill shots without vision.

Mike:  The epic win is that Blizzard just threw the ban hammer at anyone who used the map hack, although many are contesting their bans on the forums as “undeserved” because they say they weren’t using the hack.

Kali:  Blizzard’s official statement:  “Cheating and using hacks while playing Heroes of the Storm or any Blizzard game will not be tolerated. These actions undermine the spirit of fair competition and can lead to stability and performance issues with the service. Cheaters ruin the competitive atmosphere not only for their opponents, but for their allies as well.” Consider yourself warned.

FAVORITE PLAY OF THE WEEK

 

Kali:  I played a ranked game yesterday where every teammate was on point and no one argued…I still think I may have dreamed it. But anyway, lol…my favorite play was in the middle of the match. Our Rehgar was caught out and got killed, and then 2 other teammates went down. No one freaked out, we just kept chugging along. Next objective, we jumped on the other team and next thing I knew, the game was announcing “enemy team dominated.” We won shortly after.

Enjoy!!
