Have you played Heroes of the Storm by any chance, Ruwin?

Yeah, I have. Not a lot. One of my buddies is really into it. I mostly just play Thrall and Butcher when I do play.

Fascinating. Organism Pendulum, superficially similar to organism Abathur. Must investigate.

Ruwin, you should go to the Other Games General and put your BattleTag up. I'd love to play a few games with you someday.

@CKY: I'll think about it. I'm not on my Blizzard account much anymore, but the new Diablo season did just start...

Lucy and Mal are crazy but pretty awesome. I like the tag-in/tag-out feature - it's pretty unique and solves a design problem about how to represent two characters.

We sure do have a lot of supports that grant vision, huh?

Here's an idea for Chardis. I'm not sure about it, so feel free to suggest significant changes.

gain control of that hero = control the hero's movement? Because otherwise it would be quite OP and very complicated to use.

Mind control is as complicated as you want it to be, and "gains control" can have any number of meanings. Probably, you just get to move and auto attack with them as though they were a pet, which makes for a solid 6 seconds CC that can be devastating if you snag the carry.

But, that's all game design minutae that really doesn't matter in the long run - we're just trying to stay true to form! Hehe.

Damn, and I thought my portrayal of Sister Verity in ANGELSONG was vindictive.

Clarified Scepter's ult.

I guess the slowness of the skillshot kinda balances its power, especially if it's so slow that it requires a well placed stun to land.

I already had a similar idea for Syl's R, but... I dunno, I think this version is more game-friendly, but is very convoluted.
Syl

What do you think about these twins? I'm not entirely sure about the double ultimates, though I wanted them to get them a few references to their most infamous exploits and some significant similarities in structure (same cooldowns, contagious shields, passive bonus from closeness...)

They are meant to be villain-type heroes: they walk in as they own the place, and then retaliate violently against anything stopping them.

Syl's ult seems like a nightmare to face. I'd cut the duration of Grund's Tragedy to 12 seconds, maximum.

And now for some of the old school...

Syl's ult seems like a nightmare to face. I'd cut the duration of Grund's Tragedy to 12 seconds, maximum.

Compare Grund's Tragedy with Mordekaiser's R:
-Cooldown is 1.5 to 2 times the existing ability;
-The damage has to one-shot the target to create the doppelganger instead of having a time window to kill them;
-Syl doesn't heal;
-The doppelganger has increased movement and attack speed instead of increased health;
-Syl doesn't gain bonuses from having a doppelganger to her command;
-Syl loses control of the doppelganger if an enemy hero is nearby;
-Now I modified the duration to last up to 15 seconds more than the existing ability.

So Grund's Tragedy lasts more and can deal more damage, but is more difficult to control, has a significantly longer cooldown and Syl has no benefits in the process (except, obviously, gaining an additional hero to her team), and since Syl is rather squishy and this ability can be stopped by killing her... (I thought it was obvious, but maybe I should add it to the description)

This thread has a ton of supports already, but Jackie's favourites are missing.
Hush-Hush

I hope I didn't get their concept utterly wrong.

@Kala: That is exactly the character I like to play.

@Sister Verity's Vindictiveness: I think my next story featuring her will really drive home exactly how Sister Verity is Lawful Good Not Lawful Nicetm.

Of course, how could I put off Kimberley for so long??? She's like, my favorite character right now.

(I mean, I've been stuck on her story for months. It's like stockholm's.)

Kimberley Talon

Kimberly has the coolest concept for a carry I have ever seen. I'd move Clever Maneuver to Q and Anticipate to W, but hats off to you.

Hey, thanks! I have the bad habit of just assigning abilities to buttons as I think of them. I know if I was playing Kimberley, I'd want Clever Maneuver and Anticipate on Q and W as well. -_-

I sort of want the enemy team to be like "Well, they just picked Kimberley. Time to win before 30 minutes or she's going to crush us."

Which would like, force you to pick a split comp or some strong early game, when she's weak. Lord knows she'd never be able to solo lane.
