[Update - August, 27 - 3:20pm PDT]

Thank you for remaining patient throughout this round of extended maintenance. The game service is now online!


[Update - 9:30pm PDT]

Maintenance is running longer than anticipated and we continue to work throughout the night. We are currently looking at services being available again tomorrow, and will have a more solid estimate as work comes to completion. Thank you for your patience, and we will continue to provide updates as they become available!


Update: 3:30 p.m. PDT

We have encountered delays during downtime which will require us to extend today’s Technical Alpha maintenance window. While we don’t have an ETA to share with you at the moment, we are working hard to bring the service back online as soon as possible, and will let you know when Heroes is once again available for play.

Thank you for your patience


Update: 8:20 a.m. PDT

We've just brought the Technical Alpha service down in order to begin today's scheduled maintenance, which we're expecting to last approximately eight hours. During this time the game will be unavailable for play, but we will keep you updated as necessary throughout the day.



Good morning,

Please be advised that we will be bringing the Heroes of the Storm service offline for an extended period of maintenance starting at tomorrow, August 26 at 8:00 a.m. PDT. We expect downtime will last around eight hours and anticipate that the Technical Alpha will be available once more at 4:00 p.m. PDT that day. We will keep you updated in this thread throughout the day, as necessary, and will let you know just as soon as the Nexus is back online.

Thank you!

Edit: Tomorrow's maintenance is more focused on the technical side of things rather than in-game content, and does not include a new hero or balance/design changes.
