I'm buying murky on both my main and xp accounts. Use the same slime puffer slime slime Murlocks build when doing dailies!

I don't know. I thought for sure that Chipotle topic would get him to post. Anyone been in touch with him?

No but I miss his coefficient of friction. I bet he would respond on steam!

Stream-of-consciousness info dump.

Haven't really played Heroes of the Storm since winter vacation with family (doh!).
Winter vacation took me off the grid a bit and I've been busy since I've been home.

FFXIV and youtube/parts research has mostly eaten up my time; stuff like:
I'm still waiting on a good 34" curved IPS with G-Sync; there's the Acer Predator X34 which has reported issues with banding and coil whine; supposedly the ASUS PG348AQ (recent link) will magically be better despite using the same panel; here's to hoping!

I'm definitely shooting for a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 4x PCI-E lane NVMe SSD, but I'm not sure if I can find a good motherboard with the native connector or will need a riser card; especially with clearance concerns from the NoFan CR-95 above.

I also recently got an installed a Ergotech Freedom Arm HD (FDM-HD-S01, amazon) replacing my old Ergotron which wasn't strong enough; the FDM-HD-S01 works like a champ!

I'll see about making a more formal computer thread in a bit. Sadly, I still know jack about recent new motherboards/chipsets, cpus, and ram.

I'm still using my old dell 24" that sometimes has a red vertical line down the right for a few minutes after powering on.

Poor nerd is I.

Mostly I don't want to get > 24" because I know my pc can't handle those high resolutions. I need a low res 34" IPS screen!

I thought for certain by purchasing the Diablo master skin I was ensuring a nerf, but Diablo remains the same.

Big scaling change on Lunara means lots of DOT late game.

Little bit of damage for Stitches. He's still the lowest melee damage.

Like half Tyrande's kit got tweaked.

Cleanse has a point again, but again probably not at my MMR.

Slam build Stitches after the buff: not bad! Without that damage build or a shit ton of damage friends he still feels undertuned. I do like Last Bite on the maps that support it.

I randomly played Muradin for quest reasons, which is first time in a while. Geez he feels scary with the scaling changes and Thunderclap build.

I bought Greymane with my first real money transaction. Still forming an opinion; I really have barely played.

I still want to play more Cho'Gall.

I might like the cut of new Rehgar's jib! He's a lot more wolfy.

Rehgar + Illidan seems like it's going to be pretty broken with the new Rehgar.

Li Ming seems like the best hero in the game now. I'm seeing two viable builds right now, the long range poke with the pulling orb + 5 missile build that can practically one-shot from range and the Calamity teleport build that makes her playstyle seem kind of like a melee assassin, stacking shields and regaining health on kills. Either way, it seems like if your team gets the first kill then you can just wipe the other team within seconds.

I think Blizz intended to make her a high skillcap hero that allows one skilled player to carry, but made her way too strong.

I can believe it.

My fat old man fingers are too slow to play her, though. I'm going to pass. Pumped for Xul!

The 50% lunar event just made me quit this game!

Didn't get an event for 3 daily quest games, and then on the 4th I couldn't channel it to death or whatever, so i decided to alt-f4 and uninstall. As good a reason as any!
