Twelve of the world’s top Heroes of the Storm teams clashed at the Fall Championship at BlizzCon last month, but after days of frenzied competition, it was Ballistix who rose victorious to claim the title of Fall Champions and the $300,000 USD grand prize. In honor of their achievement, we’re adding the 2016 Fall Champion’s Mount to the in-game shop with our next patch!

Celebrate Ballistix as our freshly crowned World Champions by picking up the Fall Champion’s Mount, which has been emblazoned with the Ballistix team logo. When you purchase the 2016 Fall Champion’s Mount, you’ll also be directly supporting Ballistix, as a portion of each sale will be shared with the team. If you’d like to add the 2016 Fall Champion’s Mount to your collection, it will be available for purchase until February 28, 2017.

Join us once more in congratulating the members of Ballistix for their epic accomplishment this season:

I'm not sure what happened, but when I tried clicking the link in twitter, I was redirected to an icy-veins "You are not authorized to view this" page.

That does sound odd. I had assumed it was because the link went to a "hidden" subforum, but I've just double checked and it seems to work fine. Might have been reposted after your comment! Thanks anyway for letting us know :)

Anyone else over the re-skinned coin for every championship? I would get it if they were giving it for free if you proved you watched or even cheap gold (3-5k), but to keep charging (probably) $5 for something that is simply loading a different graphic and color change is starting to feel a little messed up. This is the fourth coin of this style (Cloud 9, MVP black, Tempest)...

I'd love for them to allow the winners to pick an in-game mount that is then re-skinned to their team's theme.

Exactly! Even if they restrict them to the three "core" mount models of horse, tiger, lizard/battle beast. Give them a colored and tweeked skin. Nothing crazy, but at least unique and personal. The original cloud 9 coin was awesome, but I don't need 4 of anything.

Yeah, I understand that it's a bit more work, but I bet they'd get a hell of a lot more revenue from the mount sales!
