Horde's Champion analyzed
The legendary hunter Rexxar has passed through Nexus portal a couple of weeks ago to join the mighty heroes on Blizzard's epic arena. He has been studied and analyzed by both ordinary players and professionals. We decided to talk to the player of Na`Vi.HotS scHwimpi to find out what he thinks about the master of Misha.
— Have you played on Rexxar already?
— Yes, a few times.
Since the introduction of Rexxar, he has been chosen by teams only in 4 professional matches and won in 2 of them. He hasn't gained popularity in pub games either. The hero isn't very useful without a pet and dies soon, thus requiring constant support by the team, which is hard to get in pubs.
Other pro players also analyzed Rexxar. Fury, a player of Murloc Geniuses, noted that Blizzard created a hero, fully basing on his history. Dunktrain, the captain of Cloud9, pointed out the integrity og the hero and the synergy of his talents and abilities. The legendary Grubby claimed that the AI of the pet rather impedes than helps.
