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!
i was hoping those changes to HOTS 2.0 but it is never too late
MOBA's aren't really my thing but Alexstrasza has piqued my interest...
That stealth change...
as much as I want to play a big dragon on HotS, Im still a sgt hammer fan
Alextra looks very cool, cant wait . :)
Hanzo vs Alextrasza... Cool!*-*
cant wait to play hanzo
I've only recently gotten into Heroes and I'm progressing nicely, in my opinion, but I am concerned about the matching with performance. Since I'm newer does that mean I'll only get matched with those who run around with their heads cut off? Or is only in ranked games?
Yay for new camera perspective!
We all love dragons
Alexstrasza is gonna be so great to play! I wanted her in HotS for such a long time! Can't wait to play her!
Alextrasza looks interesting
The changes to the matchmaking system seem very well thought out! There are many cases where a good player might end up losing because of not so great team mates and vice versa. This will be far more fair.
oh great now I gotta deal with Hanzo mains in this game as well
cant wait to test the new stealth mechanic
would be nice if they add all the aspects then you can have aspect team.
I don't play Heroes much, but Alexstraza looks awesome.
I'm sorry but GIVE US DEATHWING ALREADY!2014 - Dustin Browder: "But Deathwing is not real, That’s too big."2015 - Nothing really big aside from Azmodan in late 20142016 - Blizzcon releases Ragnaros 2017 - Blizzcon releases Alexstrasza. . . GIVE US DEATHWING!
