Blizzard released the third Heroes of the Storm comic titled Fall of King's Crest.
Issue #3 revolves around the conflict between the Lady of Thorns and the Raven Lord. The Horde unknowingly fought against Lady of Thorns in his name. Lady of Thorns awakens the Dragon Knight to help her defend her realm, but the Raven Lord controls him, forcing the Lady to kill the Dragon Knight. Ultimately, the Raven Lord claims the realm's singularity. Orphea did not participate in the battle. Later on, she blames herself for not doing anything.
Fall of the King's Crest is an event that will go live in Heroes of the Storm this week. If you missed the previous two comics, you can find them below.

Ranked Play Updates
Team League now supports all party sizes, including solo players. All solo players will need to choose which League to play for the first time after the patch. Heroes devs also discussed other changes that they planned to implement this Season in the Ranked Play & Matchmaking AMA from August 9, but because they are not covered in this preview, we're not sure if they make it live.
Ranked Play & Matchmaking AMA Changes

This week's brawl, Booty Coffers, is virtually Blackheart's Bay with minor twists. Blackheart appears on the map immediately after the gates open and only accepts payments of 100 Doubloons. He will bombard the enemy Core instead of structures, Doubloon chests spawn more often, appear at new locations, and drop more Doubloons. Play 3 games of Booty Coffers to earn a standard Loot Chest.
Blackheart got greedy! Only the richest team can hope to win over his favor with a hefty payment of 100 coins. Dodge cannonball barrages while trying to gather enough Doubloons to take down your enemies. Yarrrrrr!
Shuffle pick - Choose from one of three Heroes before entering the battle. Standard play - no talent or level restrictions. Blackheart appears immediately after the gates open, and accepts Doubloon turn-ins as usual. Skeleton Doubloon camps have been removed from the map. Doubloon chests spawn more often, appear at new locations, and drop more Doubloons. Forts and keeps drop 10 Doubloons when they die. Mercenary camps drop an additional 3 Doubloons (for a total of 5). The Boss camp drops a total of 15 Doubloons. While chests are active, Blackheart fires one cannonball every 2 seconds in an area immediately around the chest. Blackheart does not bombard enemy structures as normal (at 10/12/14 Doubloons, etc.). Instead, he waits for a team to turn in 100 Doubloons, whereupon he bombards the enemy core until it's dead. REWARDS:
Complete three matches of the Booty Coffers brawl to earn a Loot Chest!
