We just released a new patch for Heroes of the Storm to apply balance changes and a few bug fixes.

Alongside this patch, we’ve also manually corrected rankings and matchmaking ratings for a small number of Hero and Team League players who rose or fell more than 1 League (5 Divisions) higher or lower than where they ended 2017 Ranked Season 3. Read our recent forum post for more details.

Developer Comment: While he is well balanced with regard to his win-rate, Garrosh has been widely considered more punishing than other Warriors compared to the amount of counter-play he offers. While we love his playstyle and the epic moments he can create, we wanted to reduce the amount of frustration he can cause opponents. We’ve added a window of time between being hit by Groundbreaker and being thrown into the enemy team, which should help players have more opportunity to outplay him. We’re also looking at other Heroes who are lacking in counter-play, or are overly frustrating to play against, and are planning to make similar changes to them in the future.

Bug Fixes

General

  • Quick Cast: Fixed a bug causing Heroes to repeatedly cast Mount or other self-cast Abilities if the initial cast was interrupted by issuing another command using Quick Cast On Release.
  • Quick Cast: Fixed a bug in which holding right-click to move while attempting to cast Abilities using Quick Cast On Release could interrupt movement or prevent those Abilities from casting.

Heroes, Abilities, and Talents

  • Brightwing: Phase Shift can now be correctly cast on the entirety of an allied Hero’s Minimap portrait.
  • Hanzo: Coming under the effects of Zarya’s Graviton Surge while casting Storm Bow will no longer prevent the player from using Hanzo’s Abilities after Graviton Surge ends.
  • Hanzo: Rejoining a game while AI Hanzo was casting Storm Bow will no longer prevent the player from using Hanzo’s Abilities.
  • The Butcher: Fixed an issue preventing The Butcher from using consumable items such as Healing Pulse or Turrets on Volskaya Foundry.

I've tried the changes for garrosh and they aren't too terrible. Sure they are a large nerf but he's seeming quite powerful still! And playing against him is finally more pleasant.

Nova is the hero with highest winrate in the game, if Nova is the dead horse what Hanzo is?

That said those nerf aren't enough and need much more to bring her to a reasonable level of power, she's just unkillable with that ghost protocol at lv 1, a talent that they deemed be a lv 20 tier now is free and even spawns a clone that does damage and retains talents... 

and unlike the other stealth heroes she is basically unaffected by the fact that you see her since she is always out of range of any skill and ghost protocol is totally broken to be baseline with a joke CD of 60 means that it saves you like 20 deaths in a game if the game last 20 minutes... seems fair playing like an idiot and nobody can kill you regardless of how bad you are.

I'm not the best Nova in the world but I used her and i was always godlike heavy carrying my team in any match I used her not to mention I won all the game I used her with ease.

Also I'm surprised they haven't buffed Hanzo scatter shot damage since it's completely useless and noone take talents for it for a good reason

We asked blizzard for a shorter cd for dragonqueen and we just got a nerf for that R which most of people use.... so sad

and we may say goodbye to pulling garrosh since that older ability was great to pull people from between minions and then press E immediately to shoot people at base or behind team :D

It wasn't really a nerf, more of a rebalancing. Garrosh was way crazy man, it's good that Blizzard finally did something about it.

Not sure about Garrosh, I feel that the his talent to become Unstoppable will become needed in order to be able to throw people but we'll see.

I'm kinda sad not to see a nerf to Valeera's silence, this stuff is scary.

RIP Garrosh. I know his gameplay was considered "toxic", but changing that pretty much kills the entire concept of the character. Now he's just another tank with stun. But let's see how this play out.

I think that Garrosh could be more dangerous now.

Talents like Warbreaker & Intimidation are now more effektiv in connection with the stun and the slow of Groundbreaker. Getting a stun every 5 seconds after complete the quest of Warbreaker is pretty strong!

Also...Garrohs ban-rate will hopefully sink right now.

BTW: More health mean more self sustain.

I'm very excited to try the new Garrosh :-)

I don't know where you get your data from, but it appears to be shoddy. Next to no one uses her in comp, and that was BEFORE her nerfs.

Dude, you're utterly and completely wrong on all accounts. Please kindly take your bullshit off this forum. I'm asking you nicely to.

Ghost Protocol itself has a HUGE cooldown. And, it doesn't ALWAYS save her ass from death. Try it against a warrior like Arthas for instance. Try against a Lunara who goes Natural Perspective at 1. Try against Johanna, or against Malthael, or Zeratul... just to name a FEW. All those enemies can EASILY reveal her and/or mark her for death and there's little or nothing Ghost Protocol can do about it.

Nova cannot do ANYTHING against certain heroes. Against Johanna? She sees Nova's silhouette walking around, and all she has to do is flashing a Shield Glare in her direction, and then Nova gets fully revealed and has to flee or get stunned and die. Trying to burst Johanna down from your "safe range"? Nope, not gonna work, she is beefy enough to shrug off Nova's damage with her blinding skill and her trait and you have failed your purpose anyway.

Against Arthas? Good luck dodging a Howling Blast. You will need it.

etc etc etc.

Dragonstrikes buff was expected, the ulti feels pretty weak in general. 

I wonder what prompted the D.Va basic attack buff when just few weeks ago they were saying her winrates are good.

Eh. Scattershot talents arent taken not because Scattershot is completly useless but because how much Storm Bow defines Hanzo as a Hero. On the contrary Scattershot is perfect in PvE situations and situationally even better then Storm Bow in teamfights. 
Altough i must admit Simple Geometry is a pretty weak talent because the additional shots just make the Scattershot wider to the point that its questionable if its even useful in PvE not to mention teamfights.
But imo we will see more Jungler/Scatter Shot Hanzos in the future, altough i dont think Simple Geometry is mandatory for that.

Also Nova was trash tier before, then recieved a Nerf/Rework and now comes another nerf. So nope. She isnt a magical child with magical winrates.

Scattershot actually can surpass Storm Bow's damage (on paper), but only under very specific conditions, which are highly unlikely to happen often. Overall I don't think it's worth to invest on Scattershot when Storm Bow has way more value. If anything, Scattershot is a great surprise attack or a quick way to take down enemies fleeing at low health (provided you have the aim and the walls to ricochet it).

Just hitting 3 ricochets deals about the same dmg as storm bow which isnt very hard. Then in some situations it deals much more.
I dot agree that trading Simple Geometry for Target Practice is a bad trade but i do not think so about the other Scattershot talents.
Serrated Arrow, Never Outmatched, Mounted Archery, Piercing Arrows make Hanzo one of the best Junglers in the game.
These talents can be taken with Target Practice but you have to give up Flawless Techniques single target dmg buffs for Piercing Arrows AoE dmg buff, The much more reliable waveclear of Exploding Arrow (Altough i would argue that late game its weaker then Scattershot waveclear). Overall Scattershot build (aside from Simple Geometry) makes Hanzo much more versatile in a compositions but you sacrifices his single target dmg for easy and fast camps (But you get AoE dmg so its not that bad).

Interesting change for BW, but I would still prefer Q damage buff.

I mostly play the Q build.  Esp vs double tank meta.  If you land the Q with CD reduction and slow, then you can generally have your dps in the range of most tanks.  That also synergizes with mystified nicely.  More Q's means more healing (I am usually out healing the other healer, even without the bonus healing on the E talent).  But as a BW main, I would not mind a buff to Q.  I would maybe rather have it buffed on the ability to land it.  Like take away the "inner circle" requirement on Dream Shot, or buff the cast speed.  It can be hard to land without CC.  I think a dmg buff to it might be too much, as he would have too much wave clear maybe (since minions don't move really).

I fully agree, that eternal silence really grinds my gears; it seriously feels like 30 sec.

That's what I thought when I first started playing the hero too.  "Man it's so hard to hit this reliably..."  Then I practiced and watched what other people (including some pros I watch streams of) do with the skill.  Now frankly I consider two of the Scattershot talents mandatory on most maps with a decent case being made for two more.

Serrated Arrows and Never Outmatched turn Hanzo into a jungle god.  They're so good, I've seen solo Hanzo burn down bosses before it could even make it to the first fort on some maps.  Camps like Ogres and Firebats fall in only a few shots and even Knight camps fall quickly.  Outside of Jungle, Never Outmatched gives Hanzo nearly constant access to Scattershot for team fighting spread damage and opportunistic hero shotgunning.

Simple Geometry and Piercing Arrows are both situationally on the menu as well for me.  Against teams that clump both are unbeatable choices and of course they help even more with jungling.  But if neither of those interest you both other talents on those levels can easily be picked alongside the two scattershot talents (I'm partial to Redemption myself in most situations, his auto attack is just unbearable slow for me otherwise).

They released a new patch, 29.6, but no one knows what the deal is about since they forgot to release patch notes along with it.

 

Probably some other stealth nerfs for Nova or something.

According to Heroes Patch Notes, it's just a hotfix.

      Mastery Rings are a new feature that was added to the game in the latest balance update. They are the successor to legacy Mastery Skins that existed back then. When you reach level 15 and 25 with a certain Hero, you will be able to purchase these augmented rings for 5,000 Gold each.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re adding a new feature to Heroes of the Storm that will allow you to charge into battle with an extra bit of flair: introducing Mastery Rings!
      Reaching level 15 with a hero you own will unlock the ability to use gold to purchase a Mastery Ring for that hero, which will be displayed in game as an extra adornment of your hero’s regular selection circle. Additionally, when you reach level 25 with that hero you can then purchase an even more distinct Mastery Ring with gold.
      FAQ
      Q: Can I get Mastery Rings for more than one hero?
      A: You can get Mastery Rings for as many heroes as you like, given than you’ve reached at least level 15 with those heroes.
      Q: Do I purchase these rings for each Hero separately?
      A: Yes. These rings signify experience playing individual heroes and let other players know that you know how to play your chosen hero, so Mastery Rings are hero-specific.
      Q: When will Mastery Rings become available?
      A: Mastery Rings are live now!
    • By Stan
      The in-game Collection has been updated with new Heroes available for purchase at a reduced Gem cost.

      The latest balance patch comes with new augmented Hero Rings, purchasable for 5,000 gold each, which are equivalent to the old Mastery Skins, Hero updates, and more.
      Patch Highlights
      General
      After completing the Scarlet Heist Questline, a set of 3 new dailies will become available. To show off your individual Heroes mastery, Blizzard has implemented augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2) which can be purchased for 5,000 gold each. Hero Changes
      Diablo's base health has been increased and the Mana cost of Apocalypse has been reduced. Artanis' Purifier Beam speed has been increased. Some of Rexxar's talents (Easy Prey, Flare, Hunter-Gatherer) have been nerfed. Varian's Twin Blades have been nerfed and his Taunt has been buffed to incentivize Varian players to try tanking for their teams more often. Ana has been slightly buffed and they removed the awkwardness of the way Vampiric Rounds asked players to constantly target swap after 5 Shrike stacks. Deckard Cain's potions now display their impact location before they land and the radius of Fortitude of the Faithful has increased. Li Li's Hindering Winds and Surging Winds talents swapped positions. Lt. Morales has a new Medi-Drone talent which gives her limited multi-target healing. Malfurion's Entangling Roots & Innervate have been buffed. Whitemane has some new baseline mechanics. Clemency and Inquisition now remove 1 stack of Desperation, Zeal can be activated to increase Spell Power by 25% and reduce Armor by 25 for 5 seconds on a 60 second cooldown. Saintly Greatstaff has a new functionality, and Whitemane has a new talent at level 20 which can be used to grant a target ally a permanent Zeal. Qhira's Finishing Touch has been buffed to help equalize the level 1 talent tier. Junkrat's base health and regeneration have been increased and we have some follow-up changes to even out his talents (see below for details). Li Ming received survivability buffs (Health + regen). Astral Presence was removed and the functionality implemented into Force Armor. Blizzard (Source)
      Heroes of the Storm has just been updated with Hero balance changes and bug fixes! Read on for details.
      General
      The Scarlet Heist: Daily Quests Mobsters are back! After completing the Scarlet Heist quest line, a set of three new daily special event quests will be available. Using a Special Event dialog, you can choose one of those three quests and complete it for a Scarlet Heist Chest reward, once a day, until the event ends on December 3rd, 2019, PST. New Feature: Hero Mastery Rings A lot of you may remember the old 'Mastery Skins' and we are excited to bring back another way for players to show off their mastery of individual Heroes. With today's patch, players will be able to spend 5,000 gold to purchase augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2). These Mastery Rings are permanent when purchased and will be placed over the top of the normal Hero Ring, becoming visible to all players while in a match. We are extremely excited to know what you think about these and appreciate hearing any feedback you have on them! Heroes

      General
      Many abilities that were incorrectly incrementing Healing or Self Healing scores have been fixed. Protected now contributes to Healing or Self Healing Score. A.I. should no longer become stuck in a logic loop while attempting to capture Merc camps that have enemy structures nearby. User Interface
      Fixed additional issues that caused Gem purchase dialog show blank screen. Fixed typos in Boost tooltips. Fixed an issue where player names are cut off when they have a Boost active. MAC
      Fixed an issue that would cause mouse hover outlines for some objects to render solid black. Fixed an issue that would cause area of effect circles to render with an incorrect color. The latest balance update has hit the Nexus and here are the patch notes.
