After Heroes 2.0 launch, all players who log in will be granted 100 Gems to purchase a single bundle of their choice that contains 20 Heroes, which means 20 FREE Heroes! 

The offer lasts until May 22, 2017 and you need to choose wisely, because once you unlock one of the four Mega Bundles, the other will not be available.

i allready unlock them all can i keep the gem for future use?

I would guess yeah, but im not 100% sure. Would just seem weird if they took the gems away if you didn't use them.

Hmm, I really don't need a lot of heroes, but 100 gems doesn't really get you anything so I guess I'm grabbing assassin pack.

GUYS, 20 FREE heroes is a huge deal! Granted, as someone who also owns 44 heroes it's not. But for instance my girlfriend really enjoys HotS but doesn't have enough free time to properly play. Currently. Being given 20 heroes to experiment with and to be able to play with them in the future is a huge deal for many HotS enthousiasts.

It says only the offer is available till may 22 so I guess you could keep the gems for what ever they offer later, you just wouldnt be able to use them on bundles anymore.

Ill probably get the assassin pack as I have always been more of the straight dps / fighter type, support and tanking just doesn't appeal to me, plus this game is super lame imo and I only play it when there is a promotion for Wow or Hearthstone to unlock something in thoughs games so a big variety of  raw damage characters to get it done faster will be nice.

Kinda sad this got introduced this late so i had already bought Arthas and Anub very recently for climbing (still in trash ranks). Still glad for this huge free offer from Blizzard for us as i still have very limited hero pool. Also this will be insane headstart for playing on alternative servers (EU players starting on NA and vice versa). Will definitely make playing on a different server easier for people who dont want to spend lots of money for heroes. Also for alternative accounts this will be very good, might even make it worth for me to make one myself now.

Kinda own fault for spending gold before new patch tho. Still dont really care honestly. Just excited for free stuff. Cant complain about that.

Ok, there is something I didn't quite understand.

Offer is valid until May 22nd, but then, will the game take the heroes back? Or we will have them forever, but we have to unlock the bundle until 22nd?

The Heroes will be permanently added to your collection. You have until May 22 to claim them.

A bit sad for those who own all or most heroes, duplicates won't fragment into shards either (posted on twitter). But for me a bit fuinny because the last weeks I thought about "buy these heroes or these" but I wanted to be sure I will enjoy them as well as being good at playing them so I kept the gold. A lot of decisions are now taken away from my shoulders :D

I'm glad I'm the Uncle Scrooge kind of guy who rarely buys Heroes, and instead accumulate gold.

Meanwhile I've been burning my gold before release and right now have 15 pieces to my name...

I wish we got shards for the heroes we have, since I am only missing about 12 total and will probably only get 3-4 in these bundles. Oh well, Blizzard has been plenty generous with this 2.0 launch, so can't really complain.

I played the game for maybe 6 month and bought with my gold maybe 10? Heroes.

Pricing policy was always fair, you got quite some gold and there were lots of good heroes for 2000 or 4000 gold.

Combined with the 7 free heroes rotation you got a nice pool of heroes to choose from fast.

Haven't played since one and a half year, but this offer is realy great and I'll definitly will get my bundle.

Good thing I decided to hoard gold instead of buying heroes in the last few months. Now I will get a considerable amount of heroes for free, and get to keep my amassed gold for myself. It's good to be stingy sometimes :P

This is going to be big deal for new players, and since it's update that will be advertised, we can safely assume there will be rise in playerbase.

I completely agree. It is REALLY hard to approach a MOBA if you're new, specially when you don't have access to the characters. It is often discouraging, and make those potential new players feel intimidated, with that "Where do I start?". Giving new players this huge batch of Heroes will allow them to try them out in Training Mode and experiment so they can find their favorite playstyle and characters.

I have all heroes.. Thanks, Blizz, what do you hate me for? It'd be fair to compensate with shards, but no. Someone gets 20 heroes (apr. 200000 gold or huge amount of real money), someone gets nothing. /salty

If you just started playing a month ago, it would be very bad to see this coming with the next patch. But if you bought and played most of the heroes months ago it is not that bad. 
You can stop buying anything and wait for special offers, or get what you want now. :) Every item will be for free or in a special offer at one time at least.

Maybe now people won't have the excuse of one-tricking heroes, so that's good :D

      Our twentieth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of June is here!
      We present our twentieth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of June 2018.
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the June 12 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). Although tier listings are generally the product of balance, many factors come into play when discussing the relative perceived strengths of heroes, including player regions, maps, play style, skill level, and, of course, personal perception. As such, any tier list—including this very one—should never be interpreted as gospel, but rather, as a guide to better grasp what to expect with regards to typical drafting experiences. One useful application of such lists is to allow you know which heroes to look out for in terms of practice and counterplay, ultimately improving your knowledge of the game.
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Garrosh Fenix Malfurion  Zagara↑ Prime tier heroes are considered to be extremely strong in all situations, and show no obvious weakness. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most matches.
       
      Core Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Arthas Chromie↑ Alexstrasza Abathur Blaze   Falstad Auriel↑ Azmodan Dehaka Genji↓ Deckard Nazeebo Diablo↓ Greymane Stukov↓   E.T.C.↓ Hanzo     Johanna Jaina     Muradin Junkrat     Stitches Li-Ming     Varian (Taunt) Lunara↑       Maiev↓       Malthael       Thrall↓       Tychus↑       Tracer     Core tier heroes are strong in a wide variety of situations and have few counter-picking possibility. They should form the core of your team, and be picked after Prime Tier heroes have been distributed.
       
      Viable Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak Alarak Ana↑ Gazlowe Artanis Cassia Kharazim Medivh D.Va Gul'dan Li Li↓ Murky Leoric Kael'thas Lt. Morales↓ Sylvanas↓ Tyrael  Kel'Thuzad Lúcio↓ Xul Zarya Kerrigan Rehgar     Nova- Uther↓     Ragnaros       Samuro       The Butcher       Varian (Colossus Smash)↑       Varian (Twin Blades of Fury)↑       Valla       Zeratul+       Zul'jin     Viable tier heroes are generally well-rounded that have either fallen out of favour, or, inversely, are on the rise in popularity, due to the current Prime tier contenders.
       
      Niche Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Chen Cho'gall Brightwing↓ Probius Cho'gall Illidan Tassadar Sgt. Hammer Rexxar Raynor Tyrande↓     Valeera             Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They may also picked to "round out" your team composition when your team composition is missing out on key components, such as a "jungler" (mercenary camps), a solo laner, or solid waveclear.
       
      Underplayed Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Yrel (new) - - The Lost Vikings Underplayed Tier heroes are deemed to be either considerably weaker than the majority of other Heroes, or much more challenging to play properly. Although they may situationally shine, these heroes are generally avoided by most players.
       
      Discussion
      I know I promised a new list for last week, but I generally try to give important changes about a week to set in somewhat before writing about them. Nexomania launching on a Friday (May 22) also threw my timing off slight as well, though I think it's safe to expect future events involving loot chests to fire off right before weekends for economic reasons.
       
      In other news, I brought up the idea of reworking how the list is presented a couple weeks ago. The first change I'd like to discuss pertains to role division. Since Blizzard is taking its sweetest time with reworking the class system, I'm looking for a way to better convey each hero's role. Concretely, this means I'm considering adding more categories and renaming some of the classic ones. This requires a good bit of consideration and some creativity, although I feel like the system I discussed in last month's tier list is solid enough to officially subject to everyone's scrutiny. Let me know how you feel about it, as I'm sure it can be improved.
       
      Tanks:
      Bruisers:
      Fighters:
      Stalkers:
      Marksmen: (and markswomen)
      Mages:
      Healers:
      Enablers:
       
      The second change I'm looking to make pertains to tiering. Although I've never been completely happy with it, some of the problems are becoming more and more apparent as the game is becoming more balanced, and as I spend time thinking about it. First, it fails to really make sense with regards to statistics. For instance, Genji, who stands at at a low 40% win rate, has been considered one of the strongest hero for over a year now. Why might that be? I don't know (well, I do...), but I certainly wish I could better convey this. Second, the names don't really make sense because they describe different states; niche and viable,  describe circumstances, whereas core and prime could be said describe a hierarchy. This doesn't really make sense as prime tier heroes are certainly viable, and as niche tier heroes can outperform so-called prime heroes under the right circumstances. Third, the system does not account for player skill level differences or regional preferences.

      I lack the data to sort heroes by league (bronze, silver, etc.), but even if I did have enough data, it would hardly tells the whole story (refer to the Genji anecdote above). The tiering system I'm considering goes like this, however:

      Metagame defining
      General pick
      Counter-pick
      Situational (map/team composition dependent)

      I'd probably add a Ban-worthy tag to certain heroes. For instance, I'd never ban Zagara over Chromie despite considering her generally stronger. Furthermore, I'd consider giving some heroes + and - tags to provide a certain sense of perceived power, though I'll have to consider carefully.

      As for the metagame discussion, it'll be coming shortly, as per usual. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone feels about the changes.

      The number of Battlegrounds available in non-Ranked play modes has been reduced until July 9, in order to maximize each player's exposure to Alterac Pass. The change does not affect Ranked Play, as Alterac Pass won't be available until the week of July 9 there.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Attention, recruits! We’ve received updated orders from the front in Alterac. The Horde and Alliance have finished setting up their forward operating bases in the Pass, so it’s time to take the battlefield by storm. We hope your training exercises with General Vanndar or General Drek’Thar have been successful, because Alterac Pass is now available for play in all non-ranked game modes, including Custom Games.
      NON-RANKED BATTLEGROUND POOLS TEMPORARILY REDUCED
      In order to maximize each soldier’s exposure to Alterac Pass, the number of Battlegrounds available for play in Versus A.I., Quick Match, and Unranked matchmaking queues have been temporarily reduced. This reduction will remain in place until the Echoes of Alterac event concludes on July 9. All of the Battlegrounds removed from the non-ranked pool will remain available for play in Custom Games.
      REDUCED BATTLEGROUND POOL Alterac Pass Braxis Holdout Cursed Hollow Dragon Shire Infernal Shrines Tomb of the Spider Queen Please note: Hero League and Team League Battleground pools have not been adjusted, as Alterac Pass will not be available in ranked play until the week of July 9.
      Grab your gear, set your loadouts, and report immediately to Alterac Pass for additional orders from your faction's General. We’ll see you on the front lines!
