Stealth has been redesigned in the latest patch. Overhaul of the core game mechanic gave the development team an opportunity to rework Stealth Heroes in the game. We updated our guides to reflect the latest changes!

I can't quite get a grip of Valeera or Zeratul yet, but enjoying Nova and Samuro, feeling useful on both for a change. 

Stealth changes are so polarising though, that 2.75 silence or the sudden dumps of easy burst be like...

That pretty much sums it. But it's hilarious when newbies forget (or don't know) that in stealth other players can now see them, and proceed to "sneak" on you, only to get a skillshot in the head.

It's the worst, ridiculous, most stupid update for me so far. Only Zeratul is actually better, stealth never was that big deal for him and new ult and talents look quite good, Valeera is just unusable for me right now, if i feel it correctly her jump range is now even less than it was with talent on.

Stealth was a huge issue in qm though.  Most people could not spot them (I could and did watch for them).  And since you cannot draft a counter, you rarely had detection.

Not sure these are the right fixes, but I can see why they did something.

I was fine with stealth itself being nerfed, but I thought the stealth heroes were getting some sort of compensation, like bigger damage or something.

Nothing of that happened for Nova at least; she is now swimming in a pool of nerfs. Nerfs to Snipe, nerf to One in the Chamber talent, nerf to Lethal Decoy (yes Lethal Decoy damage is back to 40% per decoy), nerfs to her health and health regen...

      Blizzard's implementing new technology to the game that will enhance the ability to validate the accuracy of reports. Players who are frequently reported for using offensive language will receive account silences and ranked suspensions faster now.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Starting today, we’re implementing new technology that enhances our ability to validate the accuracy of reports. This will allow us to increase the rate that we issue account silences and ranked suspensions to players who are frequently and consistently reported for using offensive language. These actions are aimed at those who regularly use offensive language to harass, antagonize, and abuse one or more of their teammates. This type of behavior not only ruins the experience for those who are targeted, but also damages team morale, effectively degrading the fun for everyone in a match. 

      We will continue to issue weekly suspension and ban waves for non-participation and intentionally dying. You can check that forum thread regularly to keep up with our latest round of account actions. Additionally, if you’ve recently reported another player for going AFK, refusing to participate, or intentionally dying, be sure to keep an eye on the email inbox associated with your account for any updates regarding actions we’ve taken against that player as a result of your report.

      We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot negative behavior in your matches and encourage you to continue doing so. Your actions have the largest positive impact on the health of the community.
