General Discussion

1h Account Silences for Offensive Language Starting today, we’re implementing new technology that enhances our ability to validate the accuracy of reports. This will allow us to increase the rate that we issue account silences and ranked suspensions to players who are frequently and consistently reported for using offensive language. These actions are aimed at those who regularly use offensive language to harass, antagonize, and abuse one or more of their teammates. This type of behavior not only ruins the experience for those who are targeted, but also damages team morale, effectively degrading the fun for everyone in a match. We will continue to issue weekly suspension and ban waves for non-participation and intentionally dying. You can check that forum thread regularly to keep up with our latest round of account actions. Additionally, if you’ve recently reported another player for going AFK, refusing to participate, or intentionally dying, be sure to keep an eye on the email inbox associated with your account for any updates regarding actions we’ve taken against that player as a result of your report. We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot negative behavior in your matches and encourage you to continue doing so. Your actions have the largest positive impact on the health of the community.Nate Valenta186 1h

7h Update on Community Feedback Hi guys, We’ve been reading through a lot of the conversations that have been happening in the Heroes community about various topics like ranked play and matchmaking improvements. While we’ve been discussing some of these areas internally for some time, we definitely haven’t done a great job of communicating our thoughts and plans with you, and for that we apologize. However, we do have thoughts that we’d like to share with you on some of these topics, and we’d like to start with a blog post we're looking to get posted in the next couple days. This blog post will focus on several of the most commonly discussed topics we've seen. We want to follow it up with a Reddit AMA on the Heroes subreddit a day or two after the blog post. That should help us dive into even more of your questions that we may not have answered in the blog. As always, we really appreciate everyone who takes the time to share constructive feedback with us about the game. We're going to keep working on improving our communication with you guys. We’re looking forward to talking with you more this week, so keep an eye out for our blog and Reddit Q&A over the next few days. Thanks.Alan Dabiri170 7h

5d Support Ending for DX9 and the 32-bit Heroes Client This Summer In the coming months, we’re planning to end support for DirectX9 and the 32-bit version of the Heroes of the Storm client. DirectX has had several major releases since DX9, and the vast majority of players in the Heroes community are now running the 64-bit version of the game, along with DirectX11 or higher. Once support ends, Heroes of the Storm will no longer run for players who are attempting to use the 32-bit game client or DirectX9. Please also note that while the 64-bit Heroes client might still be playable on some machines using DirectX10, this may not be the case for all configurations, which is why we recommend that all our players upgrade to at least DirectX11. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you‘re not already using the 64-bit Heroes of the Storm client and DX11 or higher, we encourage you to consider making the switch prior to July of this year, which is when we aim to go live with the planned changes.Nate Valenta393 5d

Oct 18 Account Suspensions for Non-Participation - Updated May 23, 2018 Latest Suspension & Ban Wave: May 23, 2018 We’ve just issued a new round of account suspensions and bans for players who regularly go AFK, refuse to participate, or intentionally and repeatedly die during their Heroes of the Storm matches. These actions were targeted at players whose in-game performance data, combined with high report volume, clearly shows a consistent lack of contribution to the majority of their matches. In this way, we’re able to take regular and confident action against those who are intentionally harming the in-game experience for others. Going AFK, refusing to participate, and intentionally dying are behaviors that ruin the experience for everyone else in a match and undermine the spirit of competition that’s essential to Heroes of the Storm. Taking part in these actions will not be tolerated, and we will continue to suspend and ban players who do. We’d like to thank those of you who use the relevant in-game reporting options when you spot these negative behaviors in your matches, and encourage you to continue doing so. Thank you!Nate Valenta6 Oct 18
2m Alarak seems a little strong Why is he allowed to have an instantaneous Garrosh throw from range? At least one of his abilities you can interact with and dodge (his Q), but if he gets the telekinesis off, then nope, you can't dodge that one either. And yes, I know telekinesis is a skillshot, but it's instantaneous, so the only way Alarak can miss it is if he doesn't click on his target. Not because you dodged or anything. And I'm not saying all abilities NEED to be dodge-able, but it doesn't make sense for such a powerful crowd control ability not to have some kind of play around it. I feel like telekinesis is balanced as an ability that's dodgeable (like Dehaka Q), but it's NOT dodgeable, so it should be balanced more like Xul root.TheMechE12 2m
3m every time i play a match i end up tricking myself into thinking the match will be fun. every game is a Stomp fest or you just brutally lose. EVERY GAME this game is complete garbage and this MM is ruining everything the combat is amazing the mechanics are fun, problem is blizzard made a crap MM system, which is destroying this fun game, im glad LoL is destroying blizzard, if they cant make a proper MM. get the out of this industry.Mazdamundi6 3m
6m Thoughts on Cho'gall as a gm-level player. Alright, let me start by saying I have no problem with the way he is designed. It just appears to me that his numbers are a little too high. Especially when paired with an Auriel. How can you expect to deal with this combination if you do not have the PERFECT composition? Aka 4 other extremely strong and high damage heroes and one person who can soak and/or heal. This needs to stop. In quick match, (please do not hate on me or my post for saying qm matters, because qm does matter. Remember Valeera on her release? Yeah, she was nerfed for being too frustrating to deal with in quick match.) I know Cho'gall really isn't seen that much, and that he's a wild-card pick, but it's not fun gameplay when Cho does as much or more damage than any of the assassins on your team. Not only that but if self-healing was visible as a stat, it would be almost as high as what some healers could put out. Why is that allowed? He has all of the tools within his kit to absolutely stomp on players who: A)- are not at the same skill level. B) - Do not have the right team composition to deal with him, and C) - it's quick match. Even in unranked if he's last picked and your team hasn't banned him, you would've have to drafted as if you had it in your mind that he was going to be picked, or you're screwed. Cho'gall is an unorthodox pick, and because of that he's not flying under the radar, he's soaring. He is not a fun hero by design to play against. You have to send over half your team to deal with him and Auriel, and then enjoy getting poked out if your team has no range. Because engaging on him is pointless because you'll lose if you're not 110% sure that you'll kill either him or Auriel and they're completely overextended. Please. This needs to stop. Just because a hero isn't played often does NOT mean they aren't very strong border-lining on overpowered, especially when that combination is with an Auriel and another tank or Medihv. You cannot speak for this post UNLESS you have personally played against this. I will say it again: Quick match matters or else they wouldn't adjust heroes that excel in qm. Cho'gall's damage is absolutely ridiculous and is not fun to play against. It's boring and impossible to avoid most of his abilities because they're instant. Not only this but why is it that clones count for quest stacks but cho'gall doesn't count for two stacks? (exception for alarak and characters like him). This is madness. Play against him in quick match before you say "you're wrong". I'm not wrong. You have no direct experience if you think I'm wrong.treeman26 6m
6m Thoughts after a few games with new Diablo Honestly, its terrible. Dying at 100 souls is a crippling setback. I feel like a liability at that point and literally anyone else being there in the match in my place would be an improvement, even the TLV. Firestomp being turned into a skill shot doesn't feel like an improvement, its damage is so laughable low, even on the return.. "but if you hit with all five etc etc", hitting with all five just doesnt happen, no one is going to stand around for that, and the stun doesn't last long enough to ensure that it happens with any sort of regularity. The setup demonstrated in the preview trailer won't happen in a real game. Who is going to stand there idle while you fire off your stomp behind you then grab them and slam them behind you so the stun will last long enough to hit them with all 5? That only happens in some make believe fairytale land. And even when all five hits, the damage is so low that the health bar will barely move anyway. The gutted range of shadow charge is painful. The armor loss is doubly so. The movement speed that replaced it is inconsequential and unnoticeable. Diablo now feels and plays like nothing more than a dive assassin with zero damage. I can't think of a single reason I would pick new Diablo over Stitches, Varian, ETC, literally anyone. Frankly, The Butcher is a better Diablo than Diablo is in his/her current state. Better in combat healing, better damage, better charge, better stun, better cc in general, less punishing death mechanics (unless you are intentionally feeding or in a pubstomp match). What can Diablo do that Butcher can't? Displacement? I honestly can't think of anything else. New Diablo sucks, please consider reverting the changes.Face44 6m
19m I'm scared guys O_O https://imgur.com/a/ibDsDen *gulp* i can feel it on the back of my neck....... the losing streak...its calling...Sleeser21 19m
30m Tassadar rework needed, make him shielder I've been trying to master Tassadar lately but I find his ability to make a contribution as a support is limited. Isn't there a way to make him better? The only viable build is via taking Psionic Storm talents. My suggestion is that maybe he should be more focused on being a shielder. Like reduce the cooldown on Plasma Shield and give him different shield talents. So that he can maintain multiple shields on allies, and be more of a support. And then on 20 have a talent that if you manage to shield 4 allies at once it makes them permanent shields or something. That would make him way more fun and viable.Verlore19 30m
33m Does the new firestomp now have longer cast time? It does feel like it stand there longer and can be interrupted when cast.Gen3 33m
35m Stop complaining about diablo rework Given the current data it's obvious that he's under-tuned and blizzard will likely give him a numbers boost in a few days. Keep in mind that it's better for him to be undertuned and ignored for a few days than overtuned and an insta-ban like Fenix which makes the game miserable for everyone. Most diablo mains agree that his talent tree is healthy even if it's too weak rn.Shadowmere7 35m
50m Another Example of the Matchmaker Encouraging Win/Loss Streaks Here is my current win streak: https://imgur.com/qNEtVHc The first sign that your win streak is about to end is consistently banning (meaning you are consistently required to carry teammates of lower MMR than you in a game where carrying was intentionally made nearly impossible). This is the third game in a row for me banning, I just didn't think much of it enough to screenshot it in the other games. https://imgur.com/BUdwJfG So after a brutal game of having a tilted Tracer (who was a MASSIVE losing streak as well), we lost. This game was a markedly different experience than any other game I've played in the last few days. Even if I would have played that game to the best of my ability and beyond, there was no way I could force my teammates to cast their spells on my Taunt targets, I couldn't force my Greymane to stop laning the entire game. I couldn't force my Tracer not to ult Anub 5 TIMES DURING THE MATCH. It was like watching a train approaching and I'm being tied to the tracks by my team. So of course the end result was this... https://imgur.com/a/TGmgmfP If this is indeed the beginning of a losing streak, I'm going to be documenting every game as proof that this garbage is real.Lunafreya23 50m
51m Reverse a rework. If you could reverse a rework, any rework, which rework would you reverse? Personally I would reverse the Rexxar rework, if it meant I got to have the old control mechanic back.Werbs72 51m
56m Sgt Hammer range is too big The range is ridiculous. Most heroes cant even get close before suffering damage. Really need to lower the range of Sgt HammerBastilaShan6 56m
57m Nexomania Chests I open already like 60 chests and i have only got two skins from the event, and i spend at leats 20 k of gold in rerolls and yet almost nothing, not even sprays or portraits, what a hell?Alister17 57m
57m I have no influence over the outcome of each game.. I tell an ally "don't do that". They do that. They die. We lose the 4v5 we're forced into over some objective, and lose the game shortly thereafter. Every game. This matching system is flawed. I don't know how it determines some of these people are my equals, but whatever criteria it goes by, it can be correlated to a basic understanding of the game in only the loosest of senses.normalice14 57m
58m Okay, I take it back. I LOVE the Diablo rework I am not kidding, I don't think I had this much fun in such a long time. He is such a threat on the battlefield and the new skin with lighting breath had me laughing in tears.Banshee15 58m
1h will grommash be the next hero? after making diablo obsolete we need a new tank and grommash or blackhand would be a nice addition to orc team. we really need all of the warlords to be in this game. killrogg, kargath, durotan, need to be in this game because they are legendary figures and many orc fans want them. orcs are the most popular blizzard legends so it's only right.AXE16 1h
1h QM forces you to lose. I use to play QM all the time cause it was fast and easy and occasionally I would get an unbalanced match but w.e. Now every time I play it I lose because of the team comp that I am put with. What a joke of a playlist.Legit3 1h
1h The state of this game is frustrating It is clear as day that too many HotS players are having serious issues with what Blizzard is pushing, which makes them vent in the forums or quit the game. Issues include, but are not limited to: Community feedback is ignored Extremely questionable game changes/decisions Poor, luck based matchmaking at various ranks Which leads to, you guessed it - frustration. The more I strayed away from the game, the easier it was to depict all of the crap that is so-oh-so wrong with the game and the developer not giving two cents what's up. I simply saw too many well constructed posts ignored/roasted by fanboys on this damn forum. I loved the game and I've become too numb to the dumb stuff that's not been corrected for too long. The only reason I launch it for is to complete three quests and test my luck whether I'll get matched with apes or actual human beings. But hey, how dare we ask something from Blizzard, they're just a small indie company, right? Heed my heartbroken call and if you're like me, avoid this game - it is not worth these sleepless nights because of nightmares you'll be matched with a level 2 Raynor main. #SaveJimRaynorGewtino23 1h
1h did we just hit a new low match making ? Did we just hit a new low in term of match making ? not 1 but 2 players have zero kill and zero assist. i simply wonder how did we managed to be paired with people like that ?! what can justify this ? https://imgur.com/a/lWPsVpOMySelf7 1h
1h Averaging MMR is not healthy for this game (Among other things) I don't care if both teams have 10k MMR Total if one teams has 5x2kmmr players and the other team has 1 player with 6k and 4 with 1k each. The experience for the second team is detrimental. The good player is forced to play with 4 potatoes and if it happens to be on a non carry hero it is a loss from the start, and the potatoes are forced to play a game beyond their skill level. 3 years still the same, I can't believe we still have to deal with this kind of MM. Gameplay is king, more and more cosmetics is not the solution that HOTS needs. It doesn't matter how pretty skins are if every time I hit play the in game experience is horrible. Updated due to feedback in the comments: To explain a little further without making the title of this thread a paragraph. They need to tighten the amplitude. It should never be possible to match players with huge difference in skill in the same team as the MM is doing now. I know it is not an easy task, striking the balance between queue time and fair games, but sometimes it feels like the MM is not even trying.EvilKing28 1h
1h Let's talk about toxicity. Going into this I know that there will be a large void between readers as to what side they stand on with this issue as, generally, the beliefs about toxicity itself are radically one way or the other. There are those that believe that toxicity is a shield that thin-skinned people hide behind so that they can enjoy themselves in their own little safe space where nothing can criticize them or make them think adversely about the way they play. On the other hand there are those that believe that negative atmospheres are not at all conducive to the team oriented and competitive atmosphere of any given match, and that those who would go against the spirit of teamwork and fair play should be punished upon every "toxic" action taken. I have been playing this game for a few years now and I would like to submit that, perhaps, both sides are correct; and our best matches, greatest experiences, and most enjoyable times are found within the grey area between these two ideals. Let's address the first point of view. "Toxicity is a shield that is hidden behind". Let me start off by saying that this is a completely true statement. There are players who will blow the toxicity whistle at the smallest comment, suggestion or even pings that MIGHT shine a light on their performance in an adverse manner. To an extent I agree that the majority of the community is a bit too thin-skinned for their own good and will ignore a lot of criticism or advice that would help them better themselves and their play. I absolutely believe that criticism and advice should be happening in most matches played, I'm definitely not the best - and there are most definitely people out there that know some heroes better than I do. However, the way we go about this matters. If we can understand that everyone is human, and the vast majority of us don't make mistakes because we just wanted to make one, then we can also have the patience and foresight to see that getting aggressive with a person is not going to elicit the desired response. Advice can come outside of the medium of flaming. Let's move on to the other point of view. "Negative actions or comment of any kind do not belong in the atmosphere of a team oriented game". I already covered my opinion on flaming, I'm going to keep that brief. Don't flame, if you're adult you should already know that verbal aggression is generally not the key to getting someone to see your point of view. What I really want to talk about here is the blanket statement and attitude of what is considered negative. Just about everything that someone doesn't want to hear right? It is perfectly understandable that someone might not want to hear about what they did wrong or have attention brought to a mistake, however, we need to understand that we are playing a competitive game. Everyone in that match wants to win. As humans we are imperfect and we will all make mistakes, in some cases multiple times. What defines us as players and forges our growth in anything is our ability to learn from what we did wrong, to heed advice of those that have seen more than we have, and own up to our short comings. If you insist on being upset when you get called out for making a mistake, be upset only with yourself for making it. Take criticism, advice, communicate and compromise. This is how we grow and develop as players. The very last thing I want to talk about in this post is a reiteration of a previous point. We are all human, everyone makes mistakes, and people have bad days. Flame less, be constructive, don't be overly sensitive and be understanding when a person has a very competitive attitude. The grey area between these two ideals is the community I want to be a part of, even if someone is calling me out for my terrible plays. What about you?CombatWombat0 1h

It's annoying enough trying to grind shards when I'm to the point where grinding a level takes forever, it's twice as bad when you greedy jerks make skins I want unavailable because I couldn't grind them up in a 3 week window. If you think this kind of crap is going to get me to give you money, you're sorely mistaken.JamieRose53 2h
3h Add someone from previous game? I was randomly matched with someone who I enjoyed playing with. How do I add him so we can play again?Revernus17 3h
3h Naisha's Memento Can't it have something like 60-120 sec cooldown, which is reset when she hits 2+ enemies with Q. It feels terrible when a talent you take is useless trough the game, because it doesn't recharge. Ye, sure, it CAN be recharged if the enemy team stays clumped up, but they don't (most of the time)! Not to mention Fan of Knives has weird AoE and sometimes you can't hit 2 enemies even if they are next to each other, if you are at the wrong angle.RavenFire7 3h
3h Lvl 100 Greymane This is not a brag thread. This is not a “I’m the best Greymane, ask me anything” thread. I was just happy to get my first 100 and happy it was Greymane. Only took 1,045 games to do it lol. Mostly because most of those games were played before 2.0 so a lot of the exp was lost forever. Still, worth it!KydenHeart4 3h
3h "While preserving Diablo's meta build" L U L That is what they said while i knew that From the Shadows is gonna be deleted you could see the 4th talent tier in a brief moment in the video. I thought maybe they could find something else to contribute to the build but they completely trashed out the second talents while all of the first tier became OP like devils due. However devils due was already OP and now all of the level 1 talents are better than all of the level 4 ones. HOW CAN THEY DELETE THE TALENT THAT IS THE CORE CORE TALENT OF A BUILD AND SAY WE PRESERVED IT. I am really at the verge of leaving the game man i really cant handle their reworks. Last good rework they did was Alarak reworkSickMage21 3h
4h You dropped the ball on Nexomania While the skins are nice I think Blizzard really dropped the ball on Nexomania. There were so many cool things you could have done with this. Especially with the animations with the new skins. Take Diablo for example. His overpower could have been changed to a suplex. Sonya's leap could have been changed to an atomic elbow. Would have been so cool if you just put a turnbuckle animation in and have her jump off it rather than just doing the octagon thing. Quite a few other abilities that would translate well into wrestling moves as well. You did some animations but there was so much more cool stuff you could have done.DuckOfDeath5 4h
4h are you supposed to get a loot chest at level 75? i could've sworn my quests said something about it but i didn't get anything. i'm only complaining because i'm trying to get the luchador announcer loool.SradeOso3 4h
4h Changes ? Ok admittedly I have been gone awhile so please forgive me if I missed something . Are these wrestling themes going to be going on much longer ? to be honest I'm thinking like The Doctor when he faced changes to the TARDIS . " I see you've been doing the TARDIS up a bit. I don't like it.Blueblazer23 4h
5h New Default Voice Announcer Option Hello Team I'd like a feature in the options menu to blanket my entire hero pool including new heroes to an announcer of my choosing without having to do it on an individual basis in the options. This would only apply to characters on default. Some characters like diablo I may which to use custom settings and keep the diablo voice announcer. What is the community thoughts? Please like or dislike this for the dev's to see Thanks *Edited to remove confusionRAVENBHK7 5h
5h Funny, not funny... Funny things that happen in HoTS at your expense. Attacking Felsted with Chens Flying Kick as he uses Global to his team. Please leave your funny, not funny.Unknown10 5h
5h All chat in HOTS What is a all chat people you may asked? It simple answer, it allow players to chat to all players in the match. to your teammates and enemy team. Its simple idea came from Overwatch and I thought we should have it in HOTS.Pyrodragnix24 5h
5h 2018 Leak List 2018 Leak List from Axolotl Expect this year: Winston Aidan Deckard Cain Baine Bloodhoof Vashj McCree Baal Fenix Varimathras Imperius Mengsk maps: 2 Warcraft maps, Night Grove (collect wisps to improve your lanes) and Alterac Valley (kill enemy's boss during objective and a lot of merc camps)SilentStorm73 5h
5h Chromie has so many safeties. Huge attack range Time Stop Stasis/Quick Heartstone Temporal Loop/Slowing Sands I think this situation is overwhelming. Edit: I forgot the "Vision Range/Detecting stealth and revealing an area" advantage of her. Thats a safety too.Tauri273 5h
6h No any info about next Hero still? There more than a month past after Deckard Cain release(24.04.2018) and still no any info/teasers out about next hero? Does anybody find this strange?HairOfTheDog12 6h
6h Abathur must evolve, improve. I like his talents, and his kit, I like the fact that he can go several different talent paths, fits his theme, but my main complain is the HUD. He needs a custom HUD to keep track of his cooldowns and the whereabouts of his abomination, mines, locusts, nests, etc. -First of all he needs to see the cooldown of his body while he's using the symbiote. This should have been a thing since the beta, but for some reason we still have to rely on muscle memory. -He needs to see the HP of his abomination and if its being attacked. Again, this should be a basic thing. -He needs to see the position of his mines and the remaining time they have left on the minimap. -Allies need to see the symbiote on the map, so they know what's going on. -Allies need to see the symbiote's cooldowns, this is as easy as placing a small CD bar just above the symbiote or above the ally's CD bar. -Likewise allies should be able to see the area of the spike burst and stab's max range so they can play accordingly. As for other improvements I have one main complain: Calldown M.U.L.E: Really? please check the patchnotes on calldown: (Patch September 5, 2017) Note: Removed from Lt. Morales. (Patch June 13, 2017) Note: Removed from Malfurion. (Patch May 16, 2017) Note: Removed from Tyrande. (Patch January 24, 2017) Note: Removed from Tassadar. (Patch September 13, 2016) Note: Will now properly acquire a new repair target if the Structure it is actively repairing is destroyed. (Patch March 29, 2016) Note: Removed from Gazlowe. (Patch August 18, 2015) Note: Removed from Nazeebo. (Patch July 21, 2015) Note: Removed from Brightwing. Why does he still has this outdated talent? I think he's literally the last hero with it, for the love of god, if you must keep that talent at the very least give him custom zerg visuals, like spawning a zerg drone, not a !@#$%^- Terran unit. Still could use some improvements on the mine build, only 4 talents and 2 overlap.Ixidron22 6h
6h Lunara Rework - What do you think? The Devs said they want to rework Lunara too.They also said they want to change her talent tree and wisp. What do you think, what kind of talents she will get and what they will do with the Wisp? I really hope she will get Abolish Magic as her E or Abolish Magic as a talent on a survivability talent tier, like Siphoning Toxin, Greater Spell Shield and Abolish Magic. And I really hope her wisp will stays as an active ability on the (1) slot. Edit: Sorry, my english is not very good, it's not my native language. :(Orca27 6h
7h Heroes with no reworks yet? There are some heroes who really need reworks. Instead I just see popular heroes getting reworked and some old, unique heroes rotten(eg TLV). Does anyone know a rework list?HitAndRun8 7h
7h Why I Uninstalled Logged in to play some ranked games. Estimated wait time: 273s. Actual wait time: 1,500s+ (Yeah, over 25 minutes waiting) So I said "screw that," and queued for some QM instead. Here's what Blizzard's matchmaking algorithm comes up with on the IMMORTALS map: Enemy Team > Kharazim, Abathur, Illidan, Tychus, Kael'thalas (basically double support with Illidan = deadly). My Team > Muradin, Junkrat, Chromie, Azmodan, Sylvanas (that's right, no support. And the Mura player leaves early on so we get an AI Muradin). No need to ask. Yes, we got raped. Afterwards, I queued for QM as Abathur to take a break from dying. Estimated wait time: 40s+. Actual wait time: over 400s+ before I cancel the matchmaking search and re-queue. Then what happens? The game application freezes. I have to restart my computer. So what did I do? UNINSTALLED. And it feels pretty good.HiddenPants3 7h
