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!
Always loved HotS, mainly because of the cool mounts! Also, huge thanks for the giveaway! <3 *crosses fingers*
I'm sure the other Dragon Aspects will be coming sooner or later. Would be neat to see a whole team of Aspects.

So glad it's going performance based! And I'm even more excited to play Alexstrasza!
Really cool cinematic, I really think that overwatch is a really good place to get heroes for HotS as the characters in overwatch have few abilities really fits the moba playstile.
After Alextrasza must always come Neltharion...
More variety is always welcome and you can't go wrong with dragons.You really can't.
that camera rework is great! i don't understand why they didn't do that sooner...
