Blizzard has released a small batch of hotfixes to resolve certain crash and framerate issues, as well as a handful of minor talent bugs. A small balance change may have snuck its way in as well!

 

The complete changes are as follows:

 

We've just released a hotfix for the Heroes of the Storm Open Beta in the Americas region of Battle.net, in order to squash a few bugs that made their way into the game following our latest patch on May 12. We will release the update for all regions worldwide throughout the rest of the day. We also released a hotfix on May 18, and those patch notes can be found here.

Complete patch notes for today's hotfix can be found below:

General

  • Fixed a crash that could occur when launching the Heroes client.
  • Resolved an issue which could cause machines using Intel HD 4600 graphics cards to experience framerate drops.

Heroes and Talents

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Rehgar players to permanently lose control of their Hero after coming under the effects Anub’arak’s Web Blast.
  • Sonya’s Whirlwind will no longer occasionally consume double the required Fury when spamming its Ability hotkey.
  • Kael’thas’ Chain Bomb and Ignite Talents will no longer apply Living Bomb to enemies that are already affected by another Living Bomb. The tooltip for these Talents will be clarified in a future patch.

User Interface

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Heroes client to crash.
  • Fixed an issue that could allow the Allied Chat toggle message at the beginning of each game to remain clickable even after the text had faded off of the screen.
  • The font color for whisper messages has been changed back to fuchsia.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause text with diacritics to appear misaligned.

 

The Kael'thas fix reads as less of a bug/hotfix item and more of a balance change, but it's clearly not the intended functionality of the abilities to have them 'chain' either.

 

What are your thoughts on these fixes?

      Blizzard released a new teaser image over on Twitter earlier today. According to the latest in-development video, new "Mecha" skins are currently in the works for Abathur, Rehgar and Tyrael...but is that it?
      Folks over on reddit started speculating that the teaser isn't only related to upcoming skins. The text mentions "Neo Stormwind". Do you think a Warcraft-themed Battleground is coming next?  We'll need to wait for more teasers to find out! Based on the most recent leaks, we should see Mal'Ganis and Belial fairly soon.
      Placeholder for tweet 952601211861065730 The following skins will be available to Rehgar, Tyrael and Abathur soon:
      Mecha Rehgar

      Mecha Tyrael

      Xenotech Abathur
