Welcome to the Olympics Mr. Angle Top

After the rework of Raynor, I grew disheartened of the Commander in multiple game. During this time, I grew into a depression and retreated from society with my heavy heart from the loss. I grew a full mustache and beard during this time. I began to watch all the Sylvester Stallone movies and play all the From Software games to perk myself up. After this binge, I re-emerged into society as a hardcore, grizzled man. I went back into my HotS and picked up Raynor again, and found out that Raynor is a practitioner in man-fu as well.

Then I picked up the United States Patriot Raynor, I felt something in my mind. I heard the Star-Spangled Banner in my speakers along with a certain theme.

The Olympic Athlete had returned to seek the acceptance among the WWE universe and to get revenge on those Super Stars who dared beat him in the ring. Go for the Gold, and beat everyone in the Ring and win the WWE World Championship.

Abilities Top

Your passive is fitting for a true Olympic athlete. Your experience in professional wrestling makes you able to see move coming from farther away and able to react to them fast with intensity. The other portion of your passive is that you get to plan your submission from farther away, the range increase will prove quite useful throughout the match.

Your Q will push your opponent away from you with such intensity that they will take damage and be forced to fight on your terms. Disengage to show your strength and go in when you can pin them with a powerful and intense Ankle Lock.

Your W will inspire you and your fans to fight/cheer harder for you during a match. You will go in with such speed and intensity that your foe will be down in a swift count of 1,2,3.

Your E is a safety mechanism that you have to keep in mind, Angle fan. If you are getting beat up by a tough Super Star, you can make a strong comeback with a burst of inspiration and power. Use this to your advantage to turn around intense fights.

Your Heroics both lead you into the formation of the Ankle Lock.

The Kael'Thas Patch Top

Kurt Angle received some great buffs this patch.

His Q knocks back farther, making kiting and disengaging a lot easier for Raynor (no mobility OP)

His W is AMAZING NOW. It has more uptime due to the major cooldown reduction and mana cost reduction. It gives more attack speed for you and your teammates.

Nice visual QoL for his Raynor's Raiders Heroic.

Intensity Build aka How to be an American Patriot Top

Level 1: Seasoned Marksman. You are an Olympic wrestler who got the Gold Medal, you are an expert wrestler and seasoned opponent for other Super Stars. This will give you more power and more intensity as the match goes on.

Level 4: Focused Attack. With your in-ring strength and intensity, you can deal critical strikes and maneuvers to unsuspecting Super Stars in the ring. This can prove to be a strong talent in yoru arsenal as this could lead you into the glorious Ankle Lock submission maneuver on a Super Star or the WWE ownership themselves.

Level 7: Revolution Overdrive. You are a hero to the American people. Your history is full of revolution and standing up for the little guy. With the support of others and your fanbase, you move in the ring with such inspiration and intensity that it leaves your opponents in your dust.

Level 10: Raynor's Raiders. With your large fanbase, you have plenty of people watching your back and aiding you in the ring through moral support. Use this when you are about to lock in the ANkle Lock and win a match versus a tough opponent or to inspire your fanbase beyond all imagination.

Level 13: Steel Resolve (NEW!) With his recent buffs to W, this trait is almost to hard to pass up. This is mostly due to the 50% duration bonus making your current W duration jump from 6 to 9 seconds. On a 10 second cooldown. You basically have a 100% uptime for Inspire which gives you ungodly DPS prowess. Use this trait well.

Level 16: Berserk. More intensity. An opponent may bring his A-game into the ring which might catch you and your fanbase by surprise. With this.....you get angry and launch into a frenzy. With this intense frenzy, you launch more attacks and move faster in the ring. Use this wisely, its never okay to lose your cool in the ring often.

Level 20: Nexus Fury More attack speed for that new W. You are now the god of DPS.

Integrity Build aka the Man Mode Build Top

Level 1: Give Me More!. You are a strong man, you need more things that those other puny marines and soldiers. Raynor needs more health as he is going to become the front line of his team and radiate manliness to scare of his enemies.

Level 4: Activated Rush. Screw the rules. These stimpacks wont go off before I reach a threshold? [email protected]#$ 'em. Raynor gets special rules where he can use his stimpack whenever he feels like.

Level 7: Revolution Overdrive. Youre in the middle of battle, you got your blood pumping. With this trait, Raynor becomes Rambo. Run through those puny tanks and healers with your leadership and pump those cowardly ranged DPS champs full of lead. Literally unstoppable.

Level 10: Whatever you choose makes you a badass. It just depends if you want to command a giant spacecraft or two aircrafts which give a giant middle finger to those cowardly DPS heroes.

Level 13: Steel Resolve.

"But Bruce......Double Barrelled is a better talent which increase-" *slaps you across the face*

With this talent, Raynor goes from Rambo to Superman....the universe's superpowered hero. You do more DPS and also activate your stimpack making you virtually a superhero in this game. Literally made of steel.

Level 16: Relentless Hero. Ever had that moment where a Muradin stuns and jumps on you chipping away at your life. I dont, because I got this trait. When this happens, Raynor grabs Muradin by his beard looks him dead into the eyes and says:

"This is your one and only warning punk,"

and proceeds to rip off his beard and throw Muradin away from him. Raynor is too much of a man that Blizzard had to put this trait in the game to stop any puny hero from jumping on him and getting beaten to a pulp by Raynor's fists.

Level 20: Bolt of the Storm. I hate it when people escape from my manly fists, so at level 20 I take this talent. Now, you cant hide from the most manly commander in the solar system. There are two ways to use this talent only:

1) To catch escaping cowards. Teach them to stand and fight like true men.

2) Initiate fights. Teleporting into the middle of the full enemy team is always the best idea to display your manliness in full.

But remember: You arent stuck in there with them, they are stuck in there with you. So proceed to show no mercy and pentakill their team.

NEVER use Bolt to escape a fight. If you do, then you are not man enough for this guide and are banished back to the "Press Q to Kite" Cowards Build.

Intelligence Build aka using the WWE Universe to your advantage Top

Level 1: Raynor's Recruitment. The better you do in the ring, the more merchandise you sell to the WWE Universe and to your fan base. The more merchandise you sell, the more matches you headline in. The more matches you get, the bigger the paycheck. Angle is intelligent for a reason, use this to gain a fanbase and to make that money.

Level 4: Confident Aim. Confidence is a good thing for you to have inside the ring and out. This will make you stronger in the ring and give you a stronger fan base to follow you around the world as you go for the Belt. The more confident you are, the stronger and more often your attacks are.

Level 7: Mercenary Lord. This is what makes you a Super Star. You know how to gain a fan base in the WWE Universe and to use them wisely to become the face of the company. Use your large fan base for better pushes in the ring and for potential headlines of PPVs. They will cheer your name and buy your goods. Go for the Gold kid.

Level 10: Hyperion. This allows for bigger pushes into stardom. It takes the minds and hearts of your fans and lets the Board push you into main events. This will shower the company in your stardom and dominance in the ring and in the WWE Universe. This is a powerful move, use it wisely.

Level 13: Double Barreled. You can make wise decisions more often and prepare your audience for an upset Ankle Lock to super stardom. This allows you to keep momentum with your fans and allow you to delay the match until it is time for the submission move.

Level 16: Bullseye. Leave your opponent shocked and stunned with a well-timed move and with distancing yourself from them, to go in with intelligent intensity for an Ankle Lock. This is the smartest choice in the tree as this gives you great disengage, lock-down, and intensity in the ring.

Level 20: Nexus Frenzy. You spend your time wisely in the gym and in training matches, so you can show off your true potential to the WWE Universe in the PPVs or in regular season. Once your reach peak performance, your career is in the skies above the Earth. You have become the most intelligent and intense wrestler in the WWE.
