Deathwing is hitting Public Test Realms next week and a balance patch is scheduled for Friday.
A balance patch for Heroes of the Storm is coming Friday.
The current plan is for a Balance Patch this Friday. We're still ironing things out though. Deathwing Release Date
Deathwing will hit Public Test Realms next week on November 25. The patch comes with a new Toy Event and Scarlet Heist ends December 3, so it makes sense for the event and patch to go live no later than December 4.
The Hero was apparently not ready for BlizzCon and the team worked really hard to release him by the end of the year, even though they could have released him January or February.
The PTR with Deathwing will be up next week. The Cataclysm is coming soon!
Smart, announce like 5 weeks before people can use him, that sure makes people not get frustrated.
We could have made the decision to release him January or February. He wasn't ready for the public at Blizzcon. A lot of what we showed there was temporary fx, balance and lots of bugs. We showed him there because we wanted to give the people who go to the show something we were releasing soon. We did the world shake and build up to get people excited for the reveal. We also thought it would be cool for people who didn't get to go to the show to see him on the virtual ticket and streams from Blizzcon.
We worked really hard on this hero to get him to you by the end of the year. There are a select few here that worked especially long hours to get this guy ready for you to play over the last few months (/u/Blizz_Thomas I'm looking at you and thank you my dude).
I know it can be frustrating to wait but not many people think about how frustrated they were having to wait a month or two before a release of something they're excited about after it has been released. But soon he will be here burning down structures and foes and hopefully your frustration will fade. We're really proud of this one. Hope you enjoy Deathwing as much as we do.
Hey, can you give examples of fx that will be changed for the release version?
Almost all of the FX had some level of touch-up between the BlizzCon build and release. While a lot of that is general polish and/or performance tweaks, there are also a ton of additions as well.
He's got new impacts across the board, unique impacts for minions to reduce the noise on screen, updated FX while changing forms to help distinguish which one is being activated, and some team color elements for Dragon Flight and Cataclysm.
Deathwing was a challenge specifically because of the scale and nature of his FX (Fire). Making things work well and look distinct between teams and next to other heroes with similar elements was a big challenge (I'm looking at you Kael'Thas!). Like Brew said, I hope you all enjoy Deathwing as much as we do and I can't wait to hear your thoughts next week. GLHF!

Blizzard released a small hotfix patch for Heroes of the Storm with log-in improvements aimed to help future development of the game yesterday.
Heroes of the Storm has just been updated with improvements below.
Multiple log-in improvements aimed to help future development of the game.
There's currently no release date for the teased D.Va rework. It will come some time after Deathwing.
In July, Heroes developers teased a rework to D.Va with the following changes:
D.Va's Mech Mode will be changed to only suffer Movement Speed reduction while Basic Attacking or channeling an ability; Her Defense Matrix [W] will gain the ability to be retargeted for a short time while it's active; The Big Shot [R2] (Heroic Ability) will be baseline in Pilot Mode. D.Va will receive a new Heroic called Micro Missiles. Based on how her Ultimate work in Overwatch, we can assume that she will fire a barrage of small rockets that detonate on impact, dealing damage in a limited radius around each explosion. Teased D.Va Rework
Based on the Developer AMA from July 2019, she can opt into a solo-laner bruiser build, a team-support front-liner build and a pretty ridiculous self-destruct/pilot build, with lots of interactions between these options. The devs also briefly outlined some changes to her abilities and talents:
Her Mech Mode will only suffer a Movement Speed reduction while Basic Attacking or channeling an ability, not at all times. Defense Matrix can be retargeted with a short cooldown while it's active. Big Shot [R2] is now baseline in Pilot mode. D.Va has a new Heroic Ability called Micro Missiles. Her rework is coming at a later time after Deathwing and they don't have a release date set just yet.
We currently do not have a release date set for D.Va's rework, but we will let the community know as soon as we are able. ?
All Heroes were available for gameplay until November 11 and this week, we're back to our standard weekly rotation. Which Hero did you enjoy playing the most?
