Cool. Just to be sure, this is a separate thing from the cheering rewards, right?

Yes, I think so.

Watch Twitch instead of playing the game, this is so sad.

yeah, I don't like those pumping of numbers... it always brings !loot and !drop people... 

would be better if they gave such rewards for PTR play, 1 rare chest per day for 5-10 games would help testing way more...

It's mainly doing this around the HGC mid-season brawl. I wish more people would watch and learn from that. The game would be in a WAY WAY better state for Hero League if more people learned from high level plays.

I don't know - most players think they can do what the pros can do, pick Genji and promptly proceed to do 10k damage by level 20 with their Assassin.

Humans are terrible at knowing their own limitations. Personally, I know that I should not play Genji, Tracer or other assassins like that and I generally stick to Supports and sololaners (and sometimes the main tank), unless it's vs AI or something. But many don't and play them anyway and ruin the draft with their ineptitude.

Watching the streams is not only for mere entertainment and educational or insightful purposes, but also helps to support the game on a global platform. Give it a try, you might be surprised 🙂

      This week's rotation includes Brightwing, Kel'Thuzad, Medivh, and more.
      Free-to-Play Hero Rotation: August 20, 2019
      The required player level remains unknown because Blizzard stopped updating the official forum post, so we're listing the Heroes alphabetically.

      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!
