I have no problem with that I'm excited to see the new spotlight; the hero concept reminds me of the terran siege tank in Starcraft, those were good times...
Throwing objects (Blades & Javelins, ...): Already have 4
Using Guns: Already have 4
Using Staves: Countless
Using Bows: Already have 3
So now having a hero using rockets & missles will be fun ya. Maybe it's kinda weird in Newerth, but it's exciting. Still, I wonder how "Imaginative" but not "Creative" the Hero-maker is !
Feeling Dangerous ?
fun character, but he doesn't really fit. But then again... neither do a LOT Of mofos nowadays.
Watch Me Work!!! They ask me NOT to KS, but when I don't the enemy almost always survives... and THEN I get blamed for it? Women... Oh, and by the way...Kraken was here.
So you mean I'll get to see a logger decapitate a giant mech? Fk yes
s2 on a agi hero serial killer streak?
Artesia (int, ranged) > Gravekeeper (int, ranged) > Berzerker (str, melee) > Draconis (agi, ranged) > Kinesis (int, ranged) > Gunblade (agi, ranged) > Blitz (agi, ranged) > Artillery (agi, ranged)
There were 11 heroes between and that were not agi ranged.
Also, just because it's an agi ranged does not mean it will play like every other agi ranged.

Ah, looking forward to this one. I'm very much loving S2's willingness to take agility into a direction other than "hard-carry".
To those saying "AMG ANOTHER AGILITY HERO!", I would like to point out that even with Artillery being added to the game, there are STILL more intellect heroes in the game than int. Calm down.
"Making fun of HoN is like making fun of George Bush. It has become the stupid mans joke and anyone with a pulse can have a good guffaw and think they are intellectually superior as they continue to roll around in their own feces." -[DRD]TheSopranosCheck out my HoN Dream Hero here: http://dream.heroesofnewerth.com/hero/Nine_Cloak/Cloak2
Just judging from his spells, he looks like an agility nuker along the lines of Dampeer. All of his abilities look castable, and all of them look like nukes.
First of all, I hope that his regular attack animation is a homing missile. That would just make my day.
Second, I hope his bunker down is a lot like Siege Tanks in SC2 where he deploys stabilizers from his legs to hinder his mobility, but increase the range and damage on each of his abilities substanially. I would also increase his auto attack range when he was in this deployed state. Artillery being in a deployed state, obliterating the enemy with the reports of his cannons, the roar of his missiles, and the chattering of minigun fire really would be a sight to behold.
Being able to PK in this state would make PK core on the hero as well, a first in a long while.
Can you imagine? Artillery being rooted to the ground, pounding away at the enemy team with his spells; If his position becomes compromised, he can PK away to a safer location, all the while maintaining "Bunker Down". I really hope thats what bunker down is.
However, knowing S2, this kind of inovation and originality will not be used. Instead, I'm willing to bet that Artillery will just have a bunch of long range abilities that are slightly altered from previous heroes, his attack animation will just be a bullet (a really slow bullet), and "Bunker Down" will just be a passive that gives him armor penetration or something like that. I really hope i'm wrong on this, as I would be mucho disappointed.
S2, no one cares if LoL players say you ripped off Xerath, as long as you make an original, awesome hero. LoL took Chipper from under your nose, might as well take one of theirs.

The modern/sci fi theme is cute, but we really dont need more ranged agi carries.
If the hero doesnt change too much from what i read, he will be kind of innovative and with a fresh style of play
