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!
Interesting heroes indeed
No, MOBA is not may style, sadly, because the game looks great :)
Still waiting for Taran Zhu to appear in Heroes of the Storm. Make it happen :D
The dragons concept is fabulous! I can't wait to try it!
Im interested in how the performance matchmaking will work.
Nice, that sounds great :)
i dont play Hots so much but i love the trailer!ps. Alextraza looks like Tracer in the trailer
Alextrasza is one one my fav characters ever. I can't wait!
With the new camera i might give HotS a shot again.
I love HotS! It has ruined LoL for me, thank you btw! I love adding of dragon characters!
For a game that is Free to play HoTS got some stunning graphic.
Dragons are always fun, but the Dark Queen skin is amazing!
I love dragons so this is just everything to me!
While I'm not a huge fan of HotS, these changes might get me to try out the game again.
Two of my favorite blizzard characters.
Infinite ammo... not sure i love
still regret not buying space leoric before the new system got implemented. ;_; my least fav of blizz's games cause of community/meta gaming but hopefully these changes will make me like it a bit more.
I hope we get deathwing soon, and thank god they are finally going to improve the matchmaking to factor in individual performance so I can get matched with people of my own skill level. Some of you more than likely already know how frustrating it is to do like 200k damage, 300k siege damage and have the most xp contributed on a kael thas and get mvp at the end yet still lose because your team had people who have no idea how to play HOTS or they rage quit after dying once so you had bots. I wish they would decrease the amount of points you lose if you have a bot on your team for the whole match in ranked.
i enjoyed the animated video between hanzo and alex:D
