From playing all the characters, it has seemed to bring out a lot of concepts that I thought went unexplored. I think a lot of people aside from me think the same thing. There are so many ideas that I have for optional new characters. I think to keep this game alive, the game can have a high number of playable characters, kind of like how League of Legends and DOTA games still outnumber the popularity of HotS.
List out your own Ideas too, I think there’s a high chance that the developers will miss or ignore this, but what’s the harm in trying right? - Feel free to add your own art if you desire.
Idea #1: Mai Waifu - A Magnus themed to be a parody off of Japanese anime culture. The Magnus appears as a large monitor with tank wheels and mounted gun-turrets. Her personality is nice/insanely attached. On the monitor is a generic looking high school romcom anime girl. she only speaks in Japanese, her role would be a pusher/terrain and she throws down gun sentries with monitors featuring pretty anime boys. Her origin would be a Magnus built and intended for advertising.
Idea #2: (No Name) - An Eldrid charcter with an artifact that lets her manipulate a large Pet Varelsi monster/golem. I also thought this character would kind of be like a tank/pusher. The Varelsi monster would be manipulated, teleported and controlled by the Q and E skills, and for the ultimate, she would merge with the Varelsi for a short time to become an intimidating presence. She herself would not be tanky, on the contrary, she’d be very weak relying on the Varelsi monster to take the majority of the hits. She, on her own would have a left click that lets her do a small ranged AoE attack, and a right click that would heal the monster or command it to move. (I thought of this character in concept of having her push two lanes at once in versus matches.)
Idea #3: NOVA - I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person who thinks Nova should be a playable character.
