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!
Hmm, maybe all the dragon aspect will appear in HotS!
Alexstrasza is the best dragon ever! And the skins are fantastic
Alextrasza's skins look really impressive
Never really got interested in HotS,but I was thinking of giving it a try and see how it feels.
Life Binder main :D
Why is WOWhead covering games other than WoW? No, I know the answer, but a guy can wish.
can't wait for Alex!
I really enjoyed seeing more of Alexstrasza during the HotS panels. Can't wait to try her out!
Pretty sick with Alextrasza but im actually looking forward to play Hanzo too. I play that guy way too much in overwatch :P
HOTS needs more dragons. Cant wait for deathwing, or wrathion.
Alextrasza bringing life and hope to the Heroes of the Storm. Her dragon form looks super cool, bet she will be quite a popular hero. And camera rework looks awesome! Maybe there will be less flame for Hanzo mains in Heroes of the Storm than there is in Overwatch.
Alexstraza looks amazing, so happy to see her make an appearance.
I am so excited for Alexstrasa. I wish they would make dragons a playable race in WoW - but I will take this instead ;)
Lifebinder Alexstrasza looks pretty sweet!
Will gather my friends and definetly try all of this! Really excited! Great job!
Alexstrasza > Hanzo
im not into HotS but the trailer was nuts
Glad to see another WoW hero make it in.
The reveal video was so cute. I'm excited to see Alex in HotS <3
