Natus Vincere have disbanded their Heroes of the Storm roster due to the team's poor performance. After the latest balance update, Blizzard has released a hotfix targeting Hero League matchmaking.

 

Natus Vincere Disbands

Natus Vincere parts with the Heroes of the Storm players. The main reason for it is the team's poor performance. After the end of BlizzCon 2015 the team underwent multiple reshuffles and lost its power.  Even though they had a good start in 2016, they failed to get to the spring championship. In addition the team failed at summer European championship and didn't reach playoff.

 

Natus Vincere Manager Comment

Manager of the squad, Andrey "Kimi" Kvasnevsky commented:

«First of all, I'd like to express my gratitude to all the players who contributed to the development of this team. Each of them left the footprint here. Though the achievements of the team weren't always perfect, I am pretty sure that each of them put every effort. One day comes the moment when you need to say "Goodbye" to some people, teams, etc. This is the moment. I'd like to wish good luck to the guys in their future undertakings in eSports or outside. You are the Born to Win and will always remain ones».

Hero League Matchmaking Hotfix - April 28, 2016

In order reduce MMR differences of players matched together in Hero League, Blizzard released the following hotfix.

Blizzard Icon Spyrian

Hello everyone,

 

Following the release of our most recent major patch, we’ve seen a slight widening of the skill gap between players in Hero League matches, most noticeably affecting players on the upper end of the matchmaking rating (MMR) spectrum. 
After investigating and identifying the issue, we’ve just released a fix that should help to reduce MMR differences across players who are matched together in Hero League games. Thank you for your continued feedback on the matchmaking system! We hope you’ll keep sharing your thoughts and experiences with us as we make additional improvements in the future.

 

Thank you!

They only rely on their MMR, but the problem is that unskilled players can reach high MMR. 

Still I think they should find a way to figure out how skilled the players are instead of giving them MMR based on their win rate.

 

The most discussed way was a Voting system.
