Heroes of the Storm: Blue Posts Round-Up

Recommended Posts

With the new patch hitting the live servers this week, there were some pretty important blue posts in the official forums and in social media.

 

Today, we have some clarifications on crucial issues, that were already known to the team from the previous week already.

 

Haunted Mines are gone for good

The controversial battleground has been retired for a while now. It seems that it won't be coming back at all, until it has been reworked completely - which isn't in the team's immediate plans. To reflect this change, we will be removing the hero-specific tips on this battleground from our guides; once the new Haunted Mines go live, we will update the guides with the strategies for the reworked map.

 

 

On banning new heroes in Ranked play

 

 

Potential balance changes

Dustin Browder finally acknowledged that Tyrande is overpowered and promised once again that the team is working on her.

 

 

Nova is also under scrutiny.

 

 

Dustin gave a glimpse of the changes in store for Lunara. As you know, she is a bit weak at the moment.

 

 

Lastly, Dustin gave a vague response to a player's matchmaking concerns.

 

 

Relentless and similar talents not reducing Octo-Grab duration is intended

In a Reddit topic, people were wondering if Relentless and similar talents not reducing Murky's Octo-Grab duration is a bug or not. Community Manager trikslyr clarified that this is intended, but he didn't elaborate on the reason behind that.

This might be a bit late on the response, but I have an answer for you!

Octo-grab's duration not being reduced by Relentless is intended.

Before we finish, there were also some mentions on MMR especially. A lot of members of the community have weighed in on the MMR issue, with most asking for a complete reset. Dustin Browder tweeted that he still doesn't think this is the best solution, but the team is working on it. No specifics yet, but in his own words: "[they] will do something".
