Why not just make all heroes free at this point? The game is on life support, and there's like 2.5 devs working on it. I can appreciate the fact that we still miraculously get a couple of balance patches now and then. Anduin was released two months ago, and he was a well-made hero, which means that he was created well in advance and was probably linked to an event which we never got.

They are just pushing out what was left at this point. No hero releases are confirmed for near future, and since WoW Classic is approaching (and some sort of a big patch for BfA was released), I can't see any reason to continue this hero buy mechanic since HotS online will most likely go down (also due to September coming up).

I don't think many new players are rushing into HotS right now. MOBA (ok, Blizz, HERO BRAWLER) genre is losing its popularity with new players due to an overabundance of BRs and Autochess clones (since new and younger players mostly play what is popular instead what is good).

Don't get me wrong, the current monetization system in HotS is fine. It never gets too aggressive and never really forces you to buy anything. I think that making all present heroes free won't hurt Blizzard anyway. I mostly play Brawls (which are only ARAM maps now) with my friends, and I can't really ask anything more of this game. I mean, ranked never took off in this game and by this point, I doubt anyone expects it to work (you have to be really desperate to grind broken ranked in HotS 2019).

Anyway, I think that having more heroes will push people to play more, thus getting exp boosts will look more reasonable, and some heroes have really cool skins that they might just buy with real money or play more and grind to buy with shards while still keeping up the online.

      Deathwing has been officially confirmed and here's the reveal trailer of the Worldbreaker.
      Blizzard (Source)
      You’ve felt the tremors of his approach; now prepare for the unmaking of your world as Deathwing descends upon the Nexus. Not content to lay waste to World of Warcraft and Hearthstone, The Worldbreaker has set his sights on the realms of the Nexus to spread his reign of death and destruction. The Hour of Twilight falls, mortals. Bow before The Destroyer, or burn beneath the shadow of his wings!
    • By Stan
      Deathwing has been accidentally leaked as the next Hero to join the Nexus. The reveal starts at 10:30 AM PDT on Twitch. Hero Designer Kyle Dates and Live Game Designer Adam Jackson will sit down with Trikslyr and Jhow to show off the first gameplay of the Worldbreaker.

      The introduction of Deathwing, especially now with BlizzCon around the corner, makes you wonder what they have in store for Heroes of the Storm at the event.

      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!
