After the success of the systems in Overwatch, it looks like the MVP and commendation systems will be making their way into Heroes of the Storm. Check out how it will work and what you can do when the new update goes live!

The first part of the new update will be the MVP system. Here's what Blizzard had to say about it:

Blizzard LogoMVP System

At the end of every match, excluding Custom matches, the game will automatically promote a player to MVP based on their performance in the match. All players will be eligible for the title of MVP and Awards, regardless of whether or not they were on the winning team, so be sure to try your hardest in every match to earn your place on the Award screen.

It looks like you won't just able to obtain the MVP award, but a number of others. Here is a preview of some of the possible ones you can earn:

Blizzard LogoAwards System

Of course, the MVP isn’t alone in performing heroic feats of strength on the battlefield. Awards will also be distributed at the end of the match to four other players who made significant unique individual contributions to their team. Just like the MVP, your skill will earn you a place on the Award screen, allowing others to commend your achievement, as well as a unique icon next to your name on the end-of-match Stats screen. Take a look at a few examples of some of the awards you could earn below.

  • Headhunter – Most Mercenary camps captured.
  • Bulwark – Most damage taken by a Warrior Hero.
  • Cannonneer – Most Core damage done on Towers of Doom.
  • Moneybags –  Most coins turned in on Blackheart’s Bay.
  • Stunner – Longest combined Stun time against enemy Heroes.

Once the 5 players have received their awards, you'll be able to commend the player that you feel was most deserving of their award.

Blizzard LogoCommendation System

Instead of leaving it up to the game to completely decide who had the greatest or most impressive individual impact, we’re allowing everyone in the game to pick an awarded player to commend at the end of every match. Commendations serve as a virtual thumbs-up, recognizing the player that you thought earned some additional attention. By simply clicking the arrow underneath that player’s Award, you can boost them up and support their accomplishments for everyone to see. Allied chat will also be available for the duration of the Awards celebration, which should take about 15 seconds in total, so dish out commendations and say your congrats to any teammates who you feel deserved some praise! Players who receive enough commendations at the end of the match will be elevated to Epic or Legendary status and may even receive a little extra fanfare.

Personally, I think this is a good addition to the game. I like the system in Overwatch and hopefully they can iron out some of the smaller issues that often occur there before implementing it in Heroes of the Storm!

Now all I need is Play of the Game to be implemented. Then I'll buy Tracer and hopefully then I will stop being sad about Overwatch being too expensive for me.

Are there any rewards for getting MVP? Like, extra gold or XP? That would definitely make players work a little harder.

I don't think anything has been announced yet about special rewards, I think it's basically just "yay"

      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
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓  
      Mid-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Arthas Dehaka (ban) Alarak Tracer (ban) Cassia↓  Azmodan Abathur Alexstrasza Blaze Imperius (new) Kerrigan   Falstad↑ Gul'dan Zarya Auriel Johanna Sonya↓ Maiev   Fenix↓ Junkrat   Brightwing Muradin Yrel Malthael   Greymane Kel'Thuzad    Kharazim Stitches (ban)   Ragnaros   Hanzo (ban) Li-Ming-   Li Li Varian   Thrall   Lunara Mephisto   Lt. Morales↑     Varian   Sgt.Hammer (ban) Nazeebo   Lúcio↑         Tychus Orphea (ban)   Rehgar         Zul'jin Sylvanas   Stukov           Zagara   Whitemane↓  
      Low-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer — Chen Gazlowe Valeera Valla Chromie Medivh (ban) Deckard↓    D.Va Murky     Probius         The Butcher            
      Situational picks (map, team composition, or counterpick)
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Cho'gall (ban) Leoric Illidan Nova — Cho'gall (ban) Tassadar Uther (ban) Tyrael Rexxar Xul Samuro     The Lost Vikings (ban)    
      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!
