The first Season of 2017 is coming to an end during the week of June 13 and this is your last chance to grab the raptor mount.

The easiest way to obtain a raptor is by playing 10 placement games in Team League to get a rank. You'll get it even with Bronze. Other rewards are portraits & gold.

Season rewards being so low has always been a thing I never understood. Especially team league rewards being so horrible promotes people to just play 10 placements in TL, maybe win one or two and just get a free raptor, as actually climbing team league is basically useless unless you manage to get as far as master.

Compared to WoW where essentially only the very top % get that season's mount, this is like Christmas.

Do you play TL/HL for rewards ? :) I thought we were playing the game to have fun. :p

I mean, this reward system doen't "promote" me to play exactly 10 games. I just play when I feel like it, if it's over 10 games in a season, great ! If not, great !

You play unranked for fun. Losing in TL due to the shitty matchmaking and worthless teammates is not fun.

I've never quite understood the argument of playing HL/TL and not caring about winning. Yeah, it's a game, but surely you play competitive game modes because you want to win?

I play both Unranked and Hero/Team League for fun; but then I find myself being the kind of player who always plays to win. I don't know any other way!

Unfortunately, there's so many people that think "just because it's unranked, I'll troll and throw the game because what could be funnier, right?"

      An issue with Matchmaking Rating seeding from the previous Season caused players to be placed at significantly different ranks from where they ended in the last Season. In order to fix the issue, Blizzard will be resetting the Hero and Team League records (including placement matches) of any affected accounts tomorrow.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With yesterday’s patch, a number of players unfortunately encountered an issue that caused them to be placed at ranks that were significantly different from where they ended the previous season. This issue is unrelated to our Performance-Based Matchmaking implementation, and is instead a result of an issue with Matchmaking Rating seeding from the previous season. We’ve finished diagnosing the problem and are currently working on a fix which, once completed, means that we will be resetting the Hero and Team League records (including placement matches) of any affected accounts. 

      In order to implement the fix without taking down the servers, we will need to disable the Hero and Team League Matchmaking queues for roughly an hour. Our current plan is to start this in all regions at some point tomorrow, Dec 14, but we will keep this thread updated if anything changes. For players that have yet to complete your ranked placement matches, we recommend waiting until this issue is addressed.

      We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this causes for those of you that have already made significant progress into Season 1 2018. We’re extremely excited to show off the major gameplay changes included in this patch, and will be working hard to implement a fix so you can experience everything the Nexus has to offer without major issues like this. Thank you very much for your patience.
