Heroes of the Storm introduces supercute StarCraft 'hero' Probius

Say what you will about Blizzard, but the studio knows how to make wordless bots adorable. Such is the case for Probius, the newly announced next hero for MOBA Heroes of the Storm -- and yes, he's really a Protoss drone from StarCraft. He'll be warping and buffing and disrupting and making little Artoo noises on the PTR next week starting on March 6th.

I can't wait to see what sort of funky porn people come up with for this lil dude. No, actually, I can totally wait. On second thought, how about a nice themed plushie?

Check out the video below!

I wouldn't have chosen this as a hots hero if you gave me a Blizzard compendium and a year to guess. I like it a lot!

I wouldn't tempt fate, remember rule 34.

(And don't try to disprove rule 34 unless you have some very good brain bleach at hand. The results are not pleasant.)

That sure isn't the kind of hero I was expecting. I like it!

Oh man, are they really gonna make a hero character of all the generic units, eventually?

I certainly hope so. Starcraft has so many memorable units that are iconic to the franchise that it just makes sense. Not to mention a worker hero had been asked for by the community for a long time and a probe was a good choice. Even though I personally would have liked a SCV lol. We will get a lot of known heroes as well in the end, there is room for both.

For as niche as this game is, they do put a lot of creativity into their heroes. Hoping this one is nontraditional like Abathur and Lost Vikings :O
