heroes MVP System and Commendations in Heroes of the Storm!

3 posts in this topic

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"

      It's bad news for players that regurlarly go AFK during matches or die intentionally. Another banwave went out yesterday.
      Spyrian
      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!
