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!
Not a big fan of that stealth rework, to be honest.
Can finally be Hanzo main in 2 games now ;)
great to see more warcraft in the storm

The new camera and towers changes are very nice but I am not sure about new stealth.
I don't even play HoTS except for crossover campaigns, etc, but Alexstrasza looks so awesome. ;.; I llove that apparently she heals by ENGULFING YOU IN FLAMES.
Alexstrasza looks amazing!
Alexstrasza is def going to get me back into playing HotS
YES! I love the gameplay changes, especially the camera. ty blizz
omg i am so excited to play both of these. <3 support and ranged assassins.
I didnt play HoS for a long time but i think i will try alexstraza. Because she is my favorite dragon :)
This looks cool
Interesting, but prob not interesting enough for me to actually play.
They keep doing great improvements to this game. The cinematic was pretty epic.
couldn't hope for better news... except maybe if Gelbin Mekkatorke was coming to heroes too xD

The only reason I'm going to pick up HOTS again is for Alexstrasza!
