Ending Support for Windows XP and Vista

General Discussion
During the week of October 16, we will be ending support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in Heroes of the Storm.

Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively, but since a decent portion of our audience was still using them at the time, we continued supporting them. However, there have been three major Windows releases since Vista, and at this point, the vast majority of our audience has upgraded to one of the newer versions.

Heroes will no longer run on these older operating systems once we've ended support, so we encourage any players who are still using one of the older OSes to upgrade to a newer version prior to mid-October of this year.
