Improve Medic, forbid Artanis
In accordance to Dustin's tweets, the medic will soon be slightly improved. Having gained feedback on the recently introduced hero, the developers came to a sad conclusion: the medic rather impedes her team to win, than helps. In accordance to hotslogs.com statistics, lt. Morales wins 2 of 5 games, being one of the weakest healers in the game.
Another announcement is related to Artanis. The hero will be released on 27 October, followed by the first matches of the group stage of Heroes of the Storm World Championship finals. The hero will be forbidden at the tournament, which means the teams shouldn't rebuild their game on the basis of the new hero. On the other hand Rexxar will seemingly be allowed, notwithstanding the mechanics of his abilities and the pet of the hero still have bugs and mistakes.
