We're definitely looking to rework Haunted Mines and bring it back into the Battleground pool, but the team is focused on other projects that have a higher priority right now. Haunted Mines will return, but it's unlikely to happen this year.

      Blizzard has released a new video and a neat webpage, offering some details on the new league system coming to the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship (HGC) in 2017.
      A month ago, we offered some primary details on the format of the 2017 Heroes Global Championship. Now, Blizzard has published a rough timeline and some more specific information on the new HGC format.
      The qualifiers for the top 4 regions (NA, Europe, Korea and China) will begin in November and December with 6 spots in each region being up for grabs. There are already two qualified teams for NA (Denial Esports, Astral Authority), Europe (Team Dignitas, Fnatic) and Korea (MVP Black, Ballistix), while the China ones have yet to be determined.
      After each of the four regions has its 8 best teams, League Play will begin. Teams from all regions will be pitted against each other in weekly, livestream matches. There will be Clashes twice a year, where the top three teams from each regions will be joined by the top teams from ANZ, Latin America, Southeast Asia and Taiwan in invitational exhibitions.
      Moreover, there will be a Midseason Brawl on May/June; this is an elite global competition featuring 12 pro teams from every HGC region. Lastly, the Crucible events (happening twice a year) will allow teams from the Open Division to compete with the pros.
      You can check the website introducing HGC 2017 here or you can watch the video below for a concise summary:

      It's time for a new Heroes Brawl and it's truly insane this week!
      Hammer Time lets you call down the thunder and claim Belltowers on Towers of Doom with 10 Sgt. Hammers. Oh and by the way, Thrusters will be permanently active for everyone.

      Queue up with either Sgt. Hammer or Sgt. Doomhammer and battle on Towers of Doom. The first team to acquire more belltowers to destroy the enemy core is victorious. Thrusters are permanently active for all players. Rewards
      No worries, for completing three matches of Hammer Time you will get your just rewards! It's again, 1,000 Gold and a Sgt. Hammer "flex" portrait.

      Are you enjoying Heroes Brawl so far? What are your fondest memories?
