Maiev, The Warden, is an elusive and deadly new Assassin Hero who will stop at nothing to chase down and lock away any who would stand against her in the Nexus. Maiev is preparing to join Heroes of the Storm with next week’s patch. She’s bringing along a number of new skins, as well as a new Heroic Bundle, which is available until February 19 and includes all five of her Epic launch skins. Be sure to stop by Maiev's Hero Page to learn about her abilities and playstyle.

Lunar Festival 2018!

MM9JCCEB4CHZ1516831871050.gif

In the Nexus, Lunar Festival marks a time to reflect on lessons learned from battles won and lost, and cherish the fun you’ve had queuing up with friends or family. It’s also a great time to plan out your conquests for the new year and pick up some sweet new loot!

Join us in celebrating Lunar Festival 2018 from the week of Tuesday, February 6, until Monday, March 5! During the event, you’ll unlock new lunar goodies by completing a four-part quest chain, race against the clock—and other players—to complete the free-for-all Lunar Festival Brawl, and earn ornate Lunar Festival Loot Chests just by playing Heroes of the Storm.

Head to our Lunar Festival 2018 mini-site for more event details, and be sure to take a look at all of the new skins, mounts, bundles, emojis, sprays, and portraits we’ve shared below.

New Lunar Skins

Many Heroes are joining in the revelry and donning their finest fineries during this year’s Lunar Festival event, including Kael’thas, Sylvanas, Cassia, and Zul’jin. Additionally, items from past years, such as Lunar Illidan, Jaina, Li-Ming, and others have returned to the Nexus! We’ve added new variations for some of these skins to the game, as well as a ton of new mounts, emojis, portraits, and sprays.

You can add these event items to your collection by forging them with shards, or opening them in limited-time Lunar Festival 2018 Loot Chests. New items will remain at their initial shard prices for the duration of the event, while returning items from past Lunar Festivals have been adjusted down. You won’t be able to pick up the bundles or forge event items after March 5, so be sure to snag some new loot before it's gone!

I really like the Cassia skin. But why does ingame Kael have to be so much uglier than his really amazing artwork?? I am really looking forward to some Mario... Storm... Kart :-)

The Zul'jin skin is SICK.

Finally a new skin for Zuljin! It's actually pretty sick looking too.

I know, right? I've been waiting for a new Zul'jin skin for ages! 

As a Zul'jin main, I'm really happy

Scrolling down to the comments to make a regard about Zul'Jin's new skin being awesome, but it seems that was unnecessary.

Not at all. That skin is truly majestic. I've been wanting a new skin for Zul'jin for a very long time, and this one exceeded my expectations.

You do know that skins actually give passive buffs, right? Ever since I got the Archangel Diablo and Death Knight Sonya skins I've been playing 50% better with those characters.

Only 50%? You must be using discount skins. My performance has doubled, at least. I'm basically Grand Master since I started using skins.

I meant to write "at least 50%", but I forgot. Hahaha.

I hope Blizzard expands the Loadout Capacity in the future, because we got too many cool skins and only 3 Loadouts. =(

I'd love to be able to select certain skins and then have a random selection pop up. There are multiple skins I love for Li-Ming, for example, and would love to have a random one picked from those I like.

This is why my Skin/Mount combo must always be completely and utterly on point. Not matching = Not acceptable.

That's one of those things where it's so mismatched, that it loops around past being awful, to being good again.

I don't think Blaze actually...burns. Like, he has flammable gas or liquid stored there and when someone needs a light, he helps out, teehee. The one who's more like "FLAME ON!" is Ragnaros- who makes a legit question for that. Maybe the mount is protected by magic somehow? I guess it belongs in the same category of questions as how the surfboard mount can move with Jaina/Arthas/Kel'thuzad on it-why does the water not freeze? And how can Illidan be blinded, he's already blind ECKS DEE

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Heroes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.
    • By Stan
      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
