Heroes of the Storm: Blizzard Removes Tychus' Cigar for Teen Players
ByDate: May 22 2015 Views:
As one of the typical Starcraft heroes in Heroes of the Storm, the image of Tychus with a cigar in his mouth has impressed us deeply. But sadly, he won't smoke any more in the Nexus now. Blizzard has taken the cigar from Tychus for a good reason: Heroes of the Storm is a multi-region game with a teen rating, and in some regions that means there's no smoking allowed.
But this option is not accepted by players. “We know smoking is bad, everybody does,” one Reddit poster wailed. “BUT! It’s not Blizzard’s job to make sure we don’t do it anyway. It’s an iconic part of the Tychus character. BRING BACK HIS CIGAR!”
Why not make Tychus like this? Looks more heathier! (pic: Reddit)
And Blizzard explanined in response. “These scenarios emerge frequently, and the cigar-removal was a impulsive fix because we want as many people as possible to experience the same content”.
But do you think Heroes of the Storm's option will help? Does removing the cigar of Tychus really play a positive impact on teen players? Tell us your opinions about it in the comments.
