Heroes of the Storm Patch Notes - June 14

Medivh Trailer Unveils Gul'dan

A trailer has been published, starring Medivh, where he vows to help the Heroes face an incoming menace. We can see Gul'dan at the end of the trailer which means  Blizzard is either teasing us with something similar to the Eternal Conflict event, or simply with a new Hero - Gul'dan. The Hero could very well be a promotion item for players, who purchase the Legion expansion, similarly to Tracer being available to those, who purchased Overwatch.

All players start at level 10 and will be asked to pick a Heroic ability. No other talents are available. There's a small chance of all players being the same Hero. Complete three matches to earn a Loot Chest.

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks

      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
