Not a new hero necessarily, but a remake of engineer
So with engineer, I dont know about you guys but I loved the primary turret and then the first remake they did of it (not the mana ammo one) into the machine gun, but now I blatantly and utterly despise the skill even though I can use it to its full potential.
So how about making a "Cannon Turret".
He places down a turret. He will be capable to load it with mines, sit down on it as a stationary turret allowing him to say shoot 20% increased rate, 200 more range and 15 more damage, but becoming immobile doing so. He would also be able to put a keg in it and launch it at 1.5x the speed, deal 75 additional damage and fly an additional 300 units. This concept seems merely BRILLIANT in my mind. Imagine the fun TIME?!
Given to amount of time it would take to set up, and resulting immobility, it doesn't seem useful in any situation. In lane he'd have to get out and move as the lane was pushed or pulled, and he'd be a sitting duck for harassers. In ganking the enemy can literally just walk away from him, and has to walk IN to him to begin with. In team fights, engi needs to get off his ult and get out, he can't sit there immobile.
And besides, his current push turret synergies with his ult really well as he can push enemies through the electric fence twice, and then they'd have to walk out again, where with just the keg, he could just hit them out and that would be it..

Honestly I have played about 6 games with Engi and dont even put stats into turret. The Mines and Keg are game winners. The turret isnt much more than a easily avoidable super mini push back. I dont even run from it like i used to when going against engi now.
