“It almost seemed like some people were more excited about the train mount than about Deathwing.”
Veteran Hero Designer Kyle Dates leans back in his chair and a bright-eyed smile flashes across his face. We’ve just asked him to recount how Heroes of the Storm’s first multi-Hero mount came to be, and it’s clear he has a story to share about this little engine that… almost didn’t.
When the team first showed off the mount at BlizzCon, Dates explains, “everyone just kind of assumed it [linking up your train cars] would be automatic.” Though, as he knew, this was not currently the case. “At the time they didn’t connect,” says Dates, “and there was no intention for them to connect.” The only way to form a train was to organize your buddies and have everyone meticulously control their character in line. Sure, you could make it work, but players wanted more.
The Destroyer has finally descended upon Heroes of the Storm, and the community has been celebrating his arrival with some spicy content.
Here’s some of what you missed while you were laying waste to the Nexus:
Deathwing’s reveal trailer introduced players to the littlest Aspect of Death, and they have since embraced the adorably terrifying Flying Destroyer Brightwing in all her pint-sized glory. Alongside the Worldbreaker himself, the two make a ...Read more

It’s not always sunshine, stuffing, and rainbows between the Funtime Pals. It seems Tickle Mephisto has a posable plastic bone to pick with Cuddle Bear Stitches ever since the adorable abomination played a bit too rough during last year’s celebration. Now, the precocious host of last year’s event has settled into slumber and Mephisto has invited you over for another round of games… though he may have a more sinister goal in mind.

Chen’s Stagger ability means that he can actually be the cause of his own death!
The command tab is something we’re investigating as a possible bug. So far we have not identified any solution outside of playing in Window mode. That will work to bypass the black screen issue while interacting with other tabs but I know it’s not an ideal way to play. Just a temporary workaround while we investigate.
Hey there everyone,
The Deathwing patch has some changes that should address this. After you get a chance to play on that patch if you are still seeing this issue, if you could create a new thread on this forum it will greatly help!

We have a change that should address this in the patch with Deathwing! If after trying again in that patch this problem persists please create a new thread on this forum!
Thanks for the help!
We are aware of this issue and looking into fixing this as soon as we get a fix that works. I apologize for the inconvenience!
Can you try the steps located in this thread and see if it fixes your problem?

Out of curiosity, do you use any non-standard hotkeys, such as for Mount or Smart Command? Could you also attach a picture of what you are seeing here to help me see what is happening on your side?
This is technically not a bug. However, we are gathering some feedback about this and looking at a way to alleviate some of the negative experiences our Abathur players are experiencing right now. Stay tuned!
