[HoTM Prediction Thread] July 2020

So, I’m not sure if this is something the community will buy into but I’ve seen this in other communities and I’ve always had some fun with it. I haven’t seen it here before so let me know if I have just missed it (I doubt it because I spend way too much time here anyway lol).

The idea is to predict what kind of HoTM we’re gonna get before they hit beta. The thread would be closed as soon as zephyr1’s beta thread with the detail comes up.

I would suggest the following categories, since element comes from rotation and it’s known by everyone pretty much.

If my rotation math is correct the element for July will be Red/Fire

  • Name:
  • Class:
  • Main Role: Tank / Primary Damage / Support
    (This one is obviously debatable, but the point here is not to be fully right or anything but pure speculation)
  • Innate Resistance:
  • Mana Speed:
  • Element Link:

Does anyone else have any further suggestions?

I would like to start a count of some kind, giving one point per category that a user gets right. However, I will have to see how much time this takes off my life before promising to do so :slight_smile:

(Of course the “Main Role” category would not count because it’s subjective and cannot be narrowed down consistently). Name should be worth more points because who the hell is getting that right right?

I’ll post my prediction below and will come back to check if there are cool suggestions for further predictions.

My idea is that the predictions would relate to the first time the hero hits beta and not necessarily its official release but am open to discussion and suggestions.

Have fun!

P.S. Is there a way to create a tag? I wanted to create the tag “HoTM-Prediction” in case we manage to make this a regular thing, but could only select one of the existent tags not sure if that’s intendend or I’m just dumb :wink:

P.P.S. Feel free to move my thread if this is not the appropriate Forum Category. Felt like it to me but not sure.

Thanks! I think “resist all ailments” is a bit wishful thinking :laughing:
but dodge as element link? what a great idea! I think dodge is such a fun mechanic but 10-50 at fast is waaay too much I think

How would taunt work as an element link? Like the Hotm gets taunt himself like BK? Because not ALL can have taunt right?

Great suggestion though I’d love to see some new element links like suggested in this thread
