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 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

      We present our tenth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Kel'Thuzad patch of September 2017.
      Our tenth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of September 2017 is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Kel'Thuzad patch. The goal if 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
      As stated above, tier lists are easy to mistake for gospel. As new strategies are discovered and experimented with, so changes the perception of the relative strengths of each hero. Tier lists still prove to be useful as a snapshot of player expectations in terms of drafting. Although it is generally considered preferable to focus on high tier heroes (Prime and Core tiers), it is important to note that Heroes of the Storm's wild character and map designs make it so that any given hero's tier position is prone to fluctuate depending on the situation at hand.
      One classic example of such is that of Kerrigan on the Infernal Shrines map. Although we currently judge her to be a low-to-mid-tier hero, her drafting priority shoots up to first-pick or first-ban material on this specific map due to the nature of its objective. Certain heroes also synergise so well with each other that the sole fact of having the opportunity of drafting them together is generally enough to increase their potential. Tassadar and Tracer, for instance, are generally nightmarish to deal with for many. There are too many examples of these interactions to reasonably produce here, but we invite you to consult our guides to know exactly where and when each hero shines. The guides have been linked in the lists below for your convenience - just click any of the hero names to access them.
      A ↑ next to a hero's name means its tier list position has increased since the previous month whereas a ↓ means just the opposite. Additionally, a + or - sign indicates short-to-medium term predictions (which is to say, about a month) for tier increase(s) or decrease(s), respectively. These are often updated after significant balance patches and/or when clear trends are emerging.
      If you're newer to the game, also consider visiting our glossary for a comprehensive list of discrete Heroes of the Storm terms.
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak- Genji Uther - Arthas↑ Greymane Tassadar   Dehaka↑ Malthael     Stitches-               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 Diablo Falstad Auriel Nazeebo E.T.C. Jaina↑ Rehgar Sylvanas Garrosh Li-Ming Stukov Xul Leoric↑- Valla Malfurion↑   Sonya Zeratul     Varian (Tank)-       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 Artanis Alarak Brightwing Abathur Chen Cassia Kharazim Azmodan D.Va Chromie+? Li Li Murky↑ Johanna Gul'dan↓ Lt. Morales+? Probius Muradin+ Illidan↑ Lúcio Zagara Tyrael Kael'thas Tyrande+   Zarya Lunara       Ragnaros       The Butcher↓       Tracer       Varian (Damage)       Zul'jin       Kel'Thuzad (new!)     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 Cho'gall Cho'gall - Gazlowe Rexxar Kerrigan   Medivh   Nova   Sgt. Hammer   Raynor       Samuro↓       Valeera       Thrall↓       Tychus     Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They are generally 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.
       
      Bottom Tier
      The Lost Vikings Bottom 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.
       
      Metagame assessment
      Kel'Thuzad is excessively powerful under perfect conditions, but is kept in check by the numerous top tier heroes that are either too mobile to reliably hit with Chains of Kel'Thuzad or too resilient to burst down. In this regard, he fits well within Blizzard's recent obsession with making heroes have their own little niche and whatnot. He's doing really fine, sitting at a very reasonable 48%-something w/l ratio, but try to late- or last-pick him when Genji and Tracer and the likes aren't around to make your existence a living hell. I expect him to become better over time as players themselves become  better at picking him appropriately and when the typical hype finally dies down. And don't end up having to solo lane if you like completing Master of the Cold Dark.
      Self-sustain bruiser-like tanks are the hot thing nowadays. With a metagame that either tries to outsustain the other with two supports, or empower Genji-Greymane-Illidan-Malthael-Tracer-Valla-or-so, surviving a lot while outputting a reasonable amount of sustained damage is great. That's Arthas and Dehaka, right now. A bit ago, Anub'arak and Stitches had their turn, but I expect them to go down in popularity.
      Both Jaina and Leoric got significant buffs through their reworks. Jaina is just objectively better, with Frostbite providing Ice Block by level 8-12 rather than 20, and Summon Water Elemental getting its cooldown shaved by a massive 20 seconds. Leoric is more of a sidegrade, but he's exceptional at dealing with popular tanks, has neat waveclear, and can mess with combos with Omnious Wraith. And, of course, March of the Black King was buffed nicely as well to give him some more burst survivability and combo potential.
      I'm holding judgement about Chromie, but I expect she might be better than she was, and I already considered her borderline Core tier material. Of course, her new Sand Blast design will make it so that better players will do better than before with her, and worse players will do worse, so we're likely to see more fringe cases.
      The Butcher got a pretty big nerf. The hype train was short lived, but, in the end, this is probably for the best.
      Gul'dan, Samuro, and Thrall are simply falling out of meta; being a caster without baseline crowd control or an immobile melee assassin is pretty hard nowadays. I still think Gul'dan is in a great place on Braxis Holdout, though the resurgence of Jaina and the... uh, more of Chromie might push him off a bit.
      I wish I had a bit more to say, but besides the latest reworks, not that much has changed. I will underline, however, that these reworks have been solid. I didn't mention anything about Lt. Morales, but I do think she's better off than before; we'll need a bit more data to assess whether I'll give her a tier.

      Thanks for reading!

      Redditor Spazzo965 datamined a bunch of changes coming to the game in the latest patch, ranging from Junkrat's release date to new voice chat icons.
      Datamining
      Ana and the patch should go live on September 26. D.Va the Destroyer skin should be available on October 3 (Splash Screen). You can try out the skin on PTR, just type battlenet://heroes/skin/98/DVatheDestroyer into chat and click the link. Junkrat is due for release on October 27. Voice chat is coming soon. New icons have been found in the latest version of the client. (Source, Credits: r/ahli). You can view Spazzo's screenshot of game files here. Undocumented Changes
      Auriel's Energized Cord increases the amount of energy she gains from attacking enemy Heroes by 115% (up from 110%). Mana cost of Malfurion's Regrowth has been reduced to 40 (down from 45). Many abilities now reveal the area where they hit, for example Kel'Thuzad's Shadow Fissure. Stacking effect markers have been added to many abilities, e.g. Valla's Manticore (Image), Murky's Slime. They are only visible to the Hero causing them, so enemies or teammates won't be able to see that Kharazim's next hit will cause his trait to proc. A list of all Heroes can be found here.
