Blizzard promised that 2017 would be a good year for supports in Heroes of the Storm, and they're making good on that promise with Alexei Stukov. Yes the StarCraft Infested Terran is back, and although he doesn't seem like a dedicated healer he does have a secondary support feel to him.
Stukov relies on infesting his teammates for heals, which spread across allies, ensuring that players will have to adapt to tighter formations to get the full effect. The rest of his kit revolves around his garish arm, which fuels his two damage-dealing Heroics and a few other standard abilities. As someone who's big on off-supports like Tassadar he'll probably fit right into my playstyle, but I'm not sure if it'll be up to snuff for the rest of the community.
Stukov will hit the Nexus soon -- following a PTR period confirmed for next week.
