First off I'd like to introduce myself as many of you do not know me! I've been working as a designer here at S2 Games for over a year now. I've played World of Warcraft 3v3 arena and Team Fortress 2 competitively, as well as a countless number of other games! The heroes I've designed so far are Dampeer, Flux, and Revenant.
Now, a little bit about the design of Shadowblade. I got the idea for the concept of the hero from the CAD Time to make a hero contest. ( http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20110805/#n2202 ) Cthuluphant ended up winning the contest, however I really liked the suggestion from one of the runners up, Alex Cook.
I decided to make a hero around the concept of the Shadowblade. My goal in designing the hero was to allow it to be built either Strength, Agility, Intelligence, or a combination thereof and still be very effective. I believe I have achieved that! So now I will leave it up to all of you to decide how best to build Shadowblade. Through much iteration and testing, I am happy to bring Shadowblade to Heroes of Newerth this Friday!
I do not want to spoil any of the specifics of the hero already, however here is a little teaser of Shadowblade's Abilities:
