We're always looking for ways to improve Heroes of the Storm, and this year we've been hard at work on a number of changes designed to improve gameplay at all skill levels. We showed these changes to professional players and key community members earlier this year, and now we're opening them up to the public through an extended testing period on the PTR, beginning on November 20. Let us know what you think!
We are slightly increasing the in-game field of view to help improve team fight clarity and overall visibility.
In order to properly balance Stealth for both casual and high-end play, we're making it easier to spot stealthed Heroes. This is accompanied by buffs to the Stealth Heroes.
To better showcase individual skill in lane matchups, we're exploring ways to make the laning phase more meaningful without increasing overall game length.
To create more impactful choices about how, when, and which Mercenary Camps to capture, we are making changes to various Mercenaries.
It's about to get easier than ever to coordinate plays with your allies, because we're integrating Blizzard Voice directly into the Heroes of the Storm client! Voice chat in Heroes will be available in the months to come.
We're further increasing the accuracy of our matchmaking system by taking your individual performance and contributions into account after each match, rather than relying solely on victory or defeat.
More details coming soon!
Back when I started playing hero's I knew they would add plenty of heroes, but not this much! so happy Alexstraza is being added !

I've never really wanted to play HotS, but it looks like Blizz is doing a lot with it
Yeeaaah no more Nova that Oneshot my mage heroes :)
The stealth rework is fantastic, I will no longer have to be almost be kissing the screen to be able to detect the enemy heroes
This is my entry for the giveaway!
So, that rumor was right. Huh.... Maybe the giant list of rumored champions is legit after all, too.
Alextrasza? I guess, I'm ready to give HotS another shot:)Gameplay updates are nice btw, seem healthy.
I wish Alexstraza can change to dragon Form ^_^
