Besides a 43 second introduction to Qhira with a very brief animated short, I can honestly say I know nothing about her. There's no context to her addition to the Nexus, why she was added now, and why she was added over, well, a bank of bloody characters that would be better suited. I'm pissed off about this addition, and largely because HOTS was always designed to be the Smash Brothers of the Blizzard world. Instead, we've a Hero that looks - and feels - like an odd Black Panther addition.

How does she even relate to the wider world and Orphea? To me, and this'll be brutal, this is nonsense. No real context, no history, a shitty back-story, and a poor variant on Battlerite's Jamila. I just don't get it, and it makes me even more frustrated at Blizzard's effective abandonment of their IP. How can you compare Qhira's release to Oprhea's? You can't.
