In addition to the Q/A, Blizzard has released a spotlight explaining all the changes.

Upcoming Nazeebo Changes

A Nazeebo player on reddit submitted a thread where he's talking about Nazeebo's necessity of useful talents at Level 1, claiming Death RitualDeath Ritual is a must-pick and more versatility is needed. Centaurik answered the team is planning to increase Nazeebo's skill cap.

We have some plans to touch up nazeebo in the future. we are looking at ways to increase his skillcap (coughspiders cough), and you better believe we'll be taking a whack at that talent tree. We also agree in rolling in some form of Death RitualDeath Ritual baseline. I can't say when it's coming, but you could say we have it in our sights.


Medivh's "Healing Done" in Stats Screen Coming to More Heroes

Medivh has "Healing Done" in the stats screen. More Heroes will follow the same trend, namely Abathur, E.T.C. and Tyrael in an upcoming future patch.

We agree! as should ETC and Tyrael, as other astute observers have commented on! we have plans to address all of these in a near-future patch soon(tm).


Dustin Browder Tweets

Dustin has answered some interesting questions on Twitter lately and below, you'll find the most interesting questions.

Currently there are no plans for doing a muted players reset. A user tweeted that the MMR issues have been fixed and the toxicity is now declining.

It's likely that Kael'thas will see some changes, the developer team is closely watching his win rate.

Another player asked why developers mostly weaken strong talents (favorite picks) to make less popular talent choices more viable.

The "Rejoin" system is quite annoying as you need to wait for a long time to get back into the game.  This is a relict from the Starcraft engine and since Heroes of the Storm uses the same engine, a player was curious if there are plans for its removal. The developers are working on it, but there is currently no ETA.

      It's bad news for players that regurlarly go AFK during matches or die intentionally. Another banwave went out yesterday.
      We’ve just issued a new round of account suspensions and bans for players who regularly go AFK, refuse to participate, or intentionally and repeatedly die during their Heroes of the Storm matches. 

      Today’s action was targeted at those whose in-game performance data clearly indicates a consistent lack of contribution to the majority of their matches. In order further confirm which accounts should be suspended or banned, we also review the data behind every one of these accounts by hand, as well as examine the volume and types of in-game reports these players have received. Through this three-point verification process, we are able to take regular and confident action against players who are intentionally harming the in-game experience for others.

      Going AFK, refusing to participate, and intentionally dying are behaviors that ruin the experience for everyone else in a match and undermine the spirit of competition that’s essential to Heroes of the Storm. Taking part in these actions will not be tolerated, and we will continue to suspend and ban players who do. We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot these negative behaviors in your matches, and encourage you to continue doing so.
      Thank you!

      The official spotlight for the upcoming Assassin Valeera Sanguinar was released today.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      For a time, the gladiator Valeera Sanguinar served dutifully as one of Varian Wrynn’s personal bodyguards. Now, her shadowy skills find her a natural fit within the secretive rogue order, the Uncrowned, in their fight against the Legion. A master of stealth combat, who is as quick as her daggers are deadly, Valeera is prepared to strike at the Nexus from the shadows as our newest melee assassin.
      Hopefully you like Valeera and we'll see you in the Nexus!

      Valeera's patch adds the Cursed Hollow Sandbox to the game and you can select the mode under "Custom Games". It gives you several cheats which impact the game. Some options are well-known from the game's Try Mode.
      Cheats can impact a match from the start until the very end. At any point during the game, you have access to the commands below.
      The first option is to "Share Cheats", which gives all players access to fiddle around with game settings. Toggle Minions for both teams On/Off. Reset Structures Toggle Tribute Spawning: On/Off Move Here: Teleports you wherever you want. Reset Talents: Resets all talents. Reset Cooldowns: Resets all cooldowns Set Team Level: You can separately set the Level of both teams from 1 to 30. Toggle Infinite Mana: Stops mana depleting. It can be adjusted for both teams separately. Set Damage Dealt: Set the damage you or the enemy team deals from 1 to 300%. Set Damage Taken: Set the damage your or the enemy team takes from 1 to 300%.
      What do you think about it? I'd love if we were able to set up our own custom brawls with modifiers.
