New Quick Match Team Composition Rule in Effect

Spyrian has made a post about a new rule being implemented in Quick Matches. It's about team compositions that limit certain Heroes to one per team.

 

Blizzard Icon Spyrian

We just implemented a rule for team compositions in Quick Match that we previously detailed in last week’s blog on the current state of matchmaking in Heroes of the Storm. As mentioned in the blog, we’d like to limit cases in which Quick Match teams will receive several heroes who fill unique roles, or have limited lane presence.

From now on, it will be very unlikely that you will encounter more than one of the following heroes on the same Quick Match team:
  • Abathur
  • Cho’gall
  • Lt. Morales
  • Murky
  • Nova
  • The Lost Vikings

As with all of the team composition restrictions we’ve implemented so far, parties can still bend this rule. This means that you may still see heroes like Abathur and Cho’gall on the same team if those players entered the queue as a party.

There are two other exceptions that are worth noting, as well:

  • If you are matched against a team that has two of the above heroes in their composition, such as Abathur and Murky, your team may also receive two of the listed heroes.
  • Auto-Select does not yet abide by the new restriction. This means that if you have one of the above heroes and an Auto-Select on your team, the Auto-Select may also become one of the listed heroes. Auto-Select support for today’s new Quick Match restriction will arrive with a future patch.

      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
