Yesterday's balance patch addressed a lot of issues, but players still have questions and the team is always ready to answer them, as well as explain any future plans. Here's what Heroes of the Storm game director Dustin Browder had to say on his Twitter account in the past couple of days.

 

First of all, Dustin Browder revealed yesterday that they will be adding 2 bans per team in Hero League. Therefore, players will need to own 14 Heroes to play in Hero League. When asked how will the bans be implemented, Dustin answered that they will work in the same way as competitive scene bans do (2 rounds of 1 ban per team) and that probably the highest MMR player on the team will do the banning.

 

 

 

 

As far as yesterday's patch is concerned, Dustin warned that a display issue is making it look like it's 1.73 GBs big.

 

 

A lot of Heroes received balance changes with yesterday's patch, but some players are still wondering why their favourite Heroes haven't been changed yet. For example, the Gazlowe buffs - that were teased back at Blizzcon - aren't ready yet.

 

 

Greymane will also receive some buffs in the future.

 

 

A lot of people think that Kael'thas is overpowered in Hero League. Dustin had previously tweeted that Kael'thas' win rate is actually normal. Kael'thas didn't receive a balance change in this week's update; however, people are still concerned about him and the team is paying close attention.

 

 

Given that yesterday's patch was only a balance one, some bugs are still ingame. The team is aware of them and will fix them in the future. One of these bugs involves the text from the chatbox covering Heroes in the Hero League screen.

 

 

Lastly, on Reddit players were concerned about a bug with Flying Kick that vastly affects Chen's gameplay. Spyrian dropped by and said that this will be fixed in the next patch.

This will be fixed next patch. Today's balance update didn't include any bug fixes. Sorry for the wait, we know Chen players are thirsty for a fix here.

      Blizzard started posting Hero teasers on Twitter yesterday and it's more than certain that we'll see a new Hero introduction at Gamescom. Rockyd900 viewed the source code of the first teaser and the alt image said "teaser for Mephisto" before Blizzard removed it.
      After Deckard Cain, it appears that Mephisto will be the next Hero to join the fray. Excited to see a new Diablo Hero? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
      Teaser 1
      Here we have the first teaser posted by Blizzard and Rockyd900's screenshot of the Mephisto description.
