BlizzCon 2015 attendees and online viewers were greeted with ownership of Cho’gall, the new addition to Heroes of the Storm. Hailing from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and World of Warcraft, Cho’gall is the first hero that requires two players.
Each player chooses which ogre-head to control and each has unique abilities and talents. Only BlizzCon 2015 attendees/viewers had Cho’gall when it entered the Nexus yesterday. However, Non-attendees/viewers can get ahold of him by winning 2 games with whoever has Cho’gall.
Out of ignorance, I played like 6 games with my first Cho’gall donation to one of our twitter followers. Yea, lost 4 games. Turns out all you need to do is to create a “versus AI” game. Then click the checkbox A.I. Teammates (at the bottom-left).
Set PLAY to Versus AI. Win 2 games. Cash in. (Note: It won’t work in Custom Games. Make sure it is Versus A.I.)
Note: If that doesn’t work, it was hotfix after the posting of this article.
When choosing a hero, choose Cho or Gall. You will see two Cho’gall models in the hero selection. Don’t freak out. That’s how it should be. One model is leaning on Cho’s angle, and the other one on Gall’s angle.
The one who chooses Cho will be the one moving the hero around on the battlefield. Gall is more like a permanent Abathur hat on Cho being a passenger. Both players do share a spell interaction. Cho throws a Rune Bomb that rolls across the battlefield. Gall has to press the Runic Blast button to activate the Rune Bomb’s explosion and coordinate when to explode it.
Overall, Cho’gall is a lot of fun as either head, and you can hear them talk funny. In addition, Cho activates Z to carry a mount (rather than mount it), but Gall can also press Z to run faster for a couple of seconds — which mimics his crazed fast walk in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness when under the influence of Bloodlust.
Cho’gall has a lot of Health, but don’t get too cocky. He isn’t infallible, especially if stunned or slowed down.
Were you a BlizzCon 2015 attendee? Or were you a DIRECTV BlizzCon 2015 online viewer? Well, great news! Blizzard Entertainment sent you an email congratulating you for being the new owner of Cho’gall along with instructions how to spread the plague — err the love with friends.
Better yet, earn 2,200 gold each time you infest a friend with Cho’gall.
Cho: Awesome. Gall: Wicked, mwahahah!

Congratulations, you are the proud new owner of Cho’gall!
Cho’gall is a unique two-headed Hero controlled by two players that will put your teamwork to the test! With Cho’s brawn and Gall’s dark powers, these two are ready to take the Nexus by storm … as soon as they can agree on a plan.
Win 2 games with a friend who doesn’t own Cho’gall and they’ll earn the lovable two-headed ogre for their own collection.
Win 4 games with someone who doesn’t own Cho’gall and you’ll earn a whopping 2,200 gold.
Grab your horse and get ready to unleash twice the pain on your foes!
A few months ago, Blizzard announced that one of the new hero for Heroes of the Storm will be the Protoss Arnatis. His arrival is supposed to be timed with the released of Starcraft II last expansion, Legacy of the Void.
If you pre-order Legacy of the Void on the offical website, you’ll be able to play the new tank one week before its release on October 27th.
This weekend’s tournament had some of the most exciting matches I have ever had the privellege of watching but before we entered the bay doors at the Las Vegas convention center I was awarded the opportunity to speak with some of the teams. I wanted to get an in depth look of what the players were thinking and feeling before the tournament began. In this column the focus will be going over some of the players thoughts not only on the matches that were coming up but some if the insights they had for the game and some of the things they would like to see implemented and can give you an insight to the thoughts going through these top teams minds.
It’s this time of the month again when we get a look at the new skins and mounts for Heroes of the Storm.
Check out the upcoming heroes, hierarch Artanis and the medic Lt. Morales.
In case you weren’t lucky during Hallow’s End in World of Warcraft, mount up on the Headless Horseman’s Charger.
And finally you can ride with Raynor in style on a Vulture mount!.
