A news round-up featuring the Hell Billie mount, Connectivity Issues in Europe, Weekly Sale Items, Tweets and latest videos!

Introducing Hell Billie!

A new mount is joining the menagerie!

Beginning June 2, you will be rewarded the Hell Billie mount for any real-money purchase in the in-game shop. Hell Billie's arrival also marks the well-desired retirement of Billie the Kid (as seen in the picture above on the left). The mount was previously rewarded to every player that made a real-money purchase in the shop. Here's how Hell Billie looks like:


Fear not if you don't yet own Billie the Kid, the mount will be given away in addition to Hell Billie from Thursday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 14, 2016. After that, Hell Billie will be the only reward for making a real-money purchase.

Connectivity Issues Fixed

Users have been reporting high latency in the European region on reddit lately. The issue seems to have been fixed according to this thread.  Araxom has made several responses related to the lags.

Dustin Browder Tweets

Dustin was asked a question if there were any plans to make the role of support as healer bots any different, following player complaints.

Talking about unfinished features that are in the works are a nightmare of every game developer. Even Dustin admitted that he was talking about Arena.

And of course, Arena is far from complete yet, we still got no ETA.

^ Haha yeah same. Just to clarify, if you spend money from Thursday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 14, 2016, you get both Billie the Kid and Hell Billie mounts right? (If you don't already have Billie the Kid.)

Indeed, you will get both :), if you already own him, you will only get Hell Billie. After June 14, you will just get Hell Billie regardless of whether you own Billie the Kid or not. Hope this clears it up.

      It's bad news for players that regurlarly go AFK during matches or die intentionally. Another banwave went out yesterday.
      We’ve just issued a new round of account suspensions and bans for players who regularly go AFK, refuse to participate, or intentionally and repeatedly die during their Heroes of the Storm matches. 

      Today’s action was targeted at those whose in-game performance data clearly indicates a consistent lack of contribution to the majority of their matches. In order further confirm which accounts should be suspended or banned, we also review the data behind every one of these accounts by hand, as well as examine the volume and types of in-game reports these players have received. Through this three-point verification process, we are able to take regular and confident action against players who are intentionally harming the in-game experience for others.

      Going AFK, refusing to participate, and intentionally dying are behaviors that ruin the experience for everyone else in a match and undermine the spirit of competition that’s essential to Heroes of the Storm. Taking part in these actions will not be tolerated, and we will continue to suspend and ban players who do. We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot these negative behaviors in your matches, and encourage you to continue doing so.
      Thank you!

      The official spotlight for the upcoming Assassin Valeera Sanguinar was released today.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      For a time, the gladiator Valeera Sanguinar served dutifully as one of Varian Wrynn’s personal bodyguards. Now, her shadowy skills find her a natural fit within the secretive rogue order, the Uncrowned, in their fight against the Legion. A master of stealth combat, who is as quick as her daggers are deadly, Valeera is prepared to strike at the Nexus from the shadows as our newest melee assassin.
      Hopefully you like Valeera and we'll see you in the Nexus!
