Blizzard is giving a big incentive to play in Team League by buffing its rewards for the rest of Season 1.

From today until the end of Season 1 (August 23, 2016), the rewards for playing in Team League have been improved. Specifically, each game will now award 100% bonus XP and the gold rewards have been increased to 50 gold per win and 30 per defeat. Moreover, Stimpack bonuses will stack additively with these new rewards.

It’s no secret that Heroes of the Storm is an absolute blast when you’re playing with friends, or that raiding the Team League queue as a five-player party only turns the fun up to eleven. However, we also know that it can take a little more effort to make sure everyone’s schedules line up when it comes time for a few Team League matches, and the games themselves involve quite a bit more coordination and communication than our other modes. In recognition of that extra effort, we’d like to try something new for those of you who assemble five-player squads in search of ranks, rewards, and glory in Team League.

More XP and Gold per Match

Starting today, and for the remainder of Ranked Season 1, we’re amping up the rewards you can earn simply by playing Team League:

  • Each Team League game you complete will now award 100% Bonus XP.
  • Team League Gold rewards have been increased to 50 per win, and 30 per defeat.

Better yet, Stimpack bonuses will stack additively with these new reward amounts, making Team League the best place to squeeze the most out of an active Stimpack per game.

These bonuses are ripe for the taking right now, and will remain in effect until Season 1 concludes during the week of August 23. Gather your closest allies, take another look at all of the epic loot you can unlock by ranking up, and hit that Ready button as hard as you can! If there are a few empty slots on your Team League roster, then be sure to check out the official Heroes forums, or the Heroes of the Storm Subreddit, to find other players who are looking to party up.

Until next time, we’ll see you in the Nexus!

Do you think this move will bring more players to Team League? Or does the HotS team need to take additional measures to make it more popular?

      A new in-development video previews Valeera's abilities, several new skins and three mounts!
      Blizzard has released a new in-development video on the Heroes of the Storm YouTube channel. Earlier today, they teased with Thistle Tea on Twitter. Maybe Valeera will use Energy as a resource and Sinister Strike will generate combo points. Eviscerate would deal damage based on the number of combo points she has.
      Valeera Abilities
      She seems to be a faithful copy of WoW's assassination rogue. Here are her abilities based on WoW tooltips to give you a better idea of her kit.
      [D] -  Vanish (Trait)
      [Q] - Sinister Strike
      [W] - Blade Flurry
      [E] - Eviscerate
      [R1] - Smoke Bomb
      R2 - Cloak of Shadows
      Valeera also comes with a "Demon Hunter" skin that will be part of a bundle. The skin has themed abilities.
      New Skins
      Master Valeera Demon Hunter Valeera Lunar Li-Ming Monkey King Samuro New Mounts
      Felsaber

      Nimbus Cloud

      Lunar Rooster

      Blizzard announced on Twitter that Valeera arrives on Public Test Realm tomorrow. 
      Zul'jin got released without testing, but Valeera is hitting PTR soon and she will probably go live the week after. We'll be adding her abilities and talents once they become available. Remember, if you purchase a Hero on PTR, it will automatically unlock for the region of your choice when the patch goes live.

      After the free Hero weekend, the standard rotation returns with 10 new Heroes that have been selected for gameplay, it's weird that it matches the rotation that Blizzard posted last week, but they decided to change last week's rotation on short notice.
      Free-to-Play Hero Rotation: January 17 - 24, 2017
      Clicking on a Hero name will take you to the corresponding build guide.
