Revisiting the 2016 Season 3 Updates

For the first season of 2017, we won’t be making any major adjustments from the ranked changes implemented last year, and we’d like to share some of the reasoning behind this decision:

  • Hero League
    • Solo queue has been a huge success. We’ve seen a lot of positive feedback from players and match quality has been greatly improved.
  • Team League
    • The population of team league has risen dramatically and there are more Team League games being played than ever before.
    • However, the disparity between the number of people queueing as duos and the number queueing as trios sometimes leads to long queue times, which can in turn lead to lower match quality.


So, in short, we’re going to leave things as they are for now and continue working toward addressing the duo queue versus trio problem in Team League, which is the root of the majority of Team League match quality problems. We’ll keep you updated with updates as we have them. Good luck on the ladder!

In addition to everything we’ve mentioned so far, there will be 10 placement matches waiting for you on the other side of the season roll that you’ll need to play through in order to receive your initial ranking. We also plan to once again loosen the system’s certainty level in everyone’s skill rating, so it will be a little easier to move through the rankings during your first few matches this season.

If you’re ready to begin your Ranked Play journey in Heroes of the Storm but are unsure how, head over to our Ranked Play Guide to get started on the right foot. 

Good luck and have fun during the first ranked season of 2017!
