Mephisto, our new Diablo Assassin Hero, vows to have all kneel before him once our newest patch hits the Nexus. Alongside his arrival, you can also look forward to harnessing the power of the Shimada Clan dragons on the updated Hanamura Temple Battleground. Read on to preview Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred, as well as all of the cosmetics headed to Heroes of the Storm during the week of September 4.

Dul’Mephistos, the Lord of Hatred, is said to the be most cunning among his brethren. Even while imprisoned in a soulstone, his vile influence corrupted the Zakarum and manipulated them into breaking the seal, giving him free reign to reunite the Prime Evils and enslave humanity. Now he’s entered the Nexus and is ready to unleash destruction upon your foes… once you add him to your collection! While you’re at it, check out the Mephisto Heroic Bundle (available until September 10) and some other awesome items coming to the Nexus soon!

Carbot Azmodan looks like a coxinha (for those who don't know it is a deep fried brazilian delicacy made with shredded chicken and covered in dough).

Looks like these are the only ones. At least there are no recolors, other than Mephisto's, to pollute loot pool.

I'm still waiting for Blizzard to release Captain Amari and Grand Admiral Jaina skins.

Pirates? Well, you could say Jaina in BfA could be kinda be considered that.

But when I say "Captain Amari" I mean young Ana.

Were is the love for the specialist ?? we haven't had one since Probius :(. Always assassins these days.

We won't get more Specialists. Blizzard plans to eliminate the role as it still causes confusions, even after Medivh was released (which changed the concept of Specialists being siegers to "rulebreakers" and "masters of unconventional warfare").

Essentially, they plan on repurposing all roles to make subdivisions for Warrior (Bruisers and Tanks), Assassins (Ranged and Melee) and Support (Healer and Utility), while eliminating the Specialist class (with them being assigned to other roles, mostly Assassins).

      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!
