    General

    Performance

    • All players’ default Graphic Settings will be re-detected and reset following today’s patch, which may help to address a few performance issues that some players have been experiencing.
    • Smaller physical memory caps have been introduced for both the 32-bit and 64-bit clients with today’s update, which should mitigate some memory-related issues and make the 64-bit client a more trusted option, even for PCs with less physical RAM.
    • The “Network Spikes” indicator has been removed from the performance overlay (Ctrl + Alt + F).
      • Network Spikes tracked a number of different metrics at once. While it could indicate performance issues, the number of spikes displayed could also be affected by issues with the local player’s computer, among other things.
      • In order to avoid further confusion, the Network Spikes indicator has been removed, and will be replaced by additional performance metrics in a future update, which should help players better identify more common performance issues.
    • For more information on some of these changes, please read the Performance section of our recent blog on Community Conversations.

    New Battleground

    Heroes_TombSpiderQueen_Thumb_700x350.jpg

    Tomb of the Spider Queen, a brand new 3-lane Battleground, has been added to Heroes of the Storm and is now available for play in all game modes!

    • Spider Minions and enemy Heroes will drop magical Gems of Power upon death.
      • Collect these Gems and turn them in to the Spider Queen’s Altars, which can be found in-between lanes at the center of the Battleground.
    • Once either team has relinquished enough Gems to the Spider Queen, her Webweavers will descend and travel down each lane to siege the opposing team on three fronts.
      • Each team can summon Webweavers by turning in 50 Gems. The number of required Gems will increase by 5 for each subsequent wave.
      • Be sure to turn in Gems promptly! Gems collected by a player will be dropped upon death, but can be picked up by allied Heroes.

Read on for an overview of the most competitive game mode in Heroes of the Storm, and then check out our recent Team League blog post for a much more in-depth look at the feature.
      • With Team League, players can create named teams with dedicated rosters in order to participate in ranked, competitive Heroes of the Storm matches as a group against other teams of similar skill.
      • In order to participate in Team League, players must meet the following requirements:
        • Reach Level 40.
        • Own 10 or more Heroes (weekly free rotation Heroes do not count toward this requirement.)
        • Create or join a team that has at least five members logged in and ready to play in Team League.
    • Team Creation and Management
      • Navigate to the Team League Play Screen, click an empty team slot, enter a team name, and pay 1,000 Gold to create a new team.
        • Players may participate in up to 3 teams at any given time.

    • Draft Mode
      • Team League matches will use the “First Come, First Served” version of Draft Mode, rather than Hero League’s “Predetermined” Draft Mode.
        • With First Come, First Served Draft Mode, players on each team are free to select Heroes in any order when it is their team’s turn to pick.
        • A coin toss will still precede the draft phase, and teams will still alternate picking Heroes in 1-2-2-2-2-1 format.

    USER INTERFACE

    General

    • Though Team League is not available with today’s patch, those who have achieved Player Level 40 will earn a new progression reward which indicates that they are eligible to compete in Team League. This reward will be displayed in Player Profiles, Quest Logs, and endgame Score Screens, but Team League will remain disabled until a future update is released.

    In-game Communication

    • It is now possible to view recent in-game chat messages by opening the chat box to type a new message. Only the most recent messages will be displayed in this way. Additional improvements will arrive with future updates.
    • The following items have been temporarily disabled for further evaluation and improvements:
      • The Emote Menu (Y).
      • The ability to send “GG” chat messages to opponents in the moments after a Core is destroyed.

    Quest Log

    • A new Quest Log button has been added to the lower-right portion of the bottom navigation bar, next to the Friends List button.
      • The Quest Log will be locked prior to earning the Daily Quests reward at Player Level 6.
      • Click the Quest Log button to view active Daily Quest progression, Player Level progress, as well as the next progression reward.
      • The Quest Log will also be automatically displayed upon each login, which should help players more easily keep track of their Daily Quest and progression reward progress.

    Player Profile

    • The Player Profile screen has received an overhaul.
      • The Daily Quests tab has been removed.
      • The Profile Summary tab has been enabled.
        • Players can use this tab to view general information about their Heroes of the Storm account, such as: Recent Victory, Most Played Heroes, Total Hero Level, Ranked Play win-rates, games played with each Hero role, and much more!
      • The Rewards tab has been renamed to Player Progression
        • This tab can be used to view current Player Level, progress toward the next level, and all Player Level progression rewards.
      • The Hero Progress tab has been renamed to Hero Collection
        • Hero Progress has been visually reworked, allowing many more Heroes, their current Hero Levels, and progress toward the next level, to be displayed on each page of the Hero Collection tab.
        • Additionally, clicking any Hero portrait on the Hero Collection tab will bring up that Hero’s 3D model, as well as detailed information about its current Hero level and reward progress.
      • The Match History tab has been enabled.
        • Select this tab to view a list of recently played Heroes of the Storm matches.
        • The game mode, Hero, and Battleground selected, as well as the game’s result, and a timestamp will be displayed for each match in the list.
      • A Statistics tab has been added.
        • Players can use this tab to view additional statistics about their performance in Heroes of the Storm, such as: Heroes they’ve scored the most takedowns or received the most deaths with, total games played, and Battleground win-rates.
      • A Portrait tab has been added.
        • Portrait Selection has been moved from its previous location to this tab, making it easier than ever for players to find and choose among the portraits they’ve already earned, or simply browse through the portrait rewards they have yet to unlock.
        • Hover the mouse over any Portrait to display a tooltip that explains how it can be earned.
      • Please Note that some of the Player Profile statistics mentioned above will not contain data for games played prior to today’s patch. However, statistics for games played after the patch will be properly tracked.

    Penalties for Leaving Games

    • The tracking and penalties for leaving in-progress Quick Match and Hero League games before they are finished have been changed:
      • Leaving multiple Hero League or Quick Match games without reconnecting will now flag the player to receive the following penalties:
        • The flagged player will be disallowed from queuing for Hero League games until a Quick Match game is played to completion.
          • Leaving additional games early will cause the number of Quick Match games required to increase.
        • When queuing for Quick Match games, the flagged player will be teamed up with other flagged players who have similarly left games early.
        • The system will track players’ recent games. If a player has not left any games prematurely for some time, then leaving a single game (for reasons outside of that player’s control) will not trigger these penalties.
        • When a player who is flagged for leaving games early joins a party, the entire party will also become subject to these penalties.
          • Please note that this will not cause party members to be flagged individually. These penalties will be lifted from the party once the flagged player either completes the requirements noted above, or leaves the party.
        • Players penalized in this way can earn back the ability to play in Hero League, and be matched with non-leaving teammates. Simply play the assigned number of Quick Match games to completion (and stop leaving games).
        • Leaving a Hero League game during Draft Mode will now only penalize and flag the player who left the draft, and will no longer penalize the rest of that player’s party members.
          • In addition, the flagged player will still lose a significant number of Ranked Points upon leaving Draft Mode.

    Nelle patch note pubblicate qualche giorno fa non era stato possibile per gli sviluppatori inserire anche le motivazioni delle loro scelte. Oggi hanno deciso di intervenire nuovamente per spiegare meglio la loro filosofia di pensiero.

    Nimthanion ha scritto

    Salve, abitanti del Nexus! Ecco nuovi dettagli sulla patch!
    Questa patch è troppo estesa per spiegare ogni singola modifica, perciò abbiamo tentato di identificare quelle relative ai singoli eroi che sono più interessanti o con le motivazioni apparentemente più oscure. Come sempre, il vostro feedback è molto apprezzato!
     

    Revisione eroi
    Stiamo ancora lavorando sugli eroi già presenti e sui loro talenti mentre la fase di sviluppo continua nella closed beta, e Nova era solo l'inizio. Con questa patch abbiamo introdotto grandi novità per Abathur, Falstad e Li Li. Ci sono UN SACCO di modifiche, e non riuscirò ad analizzarle tutte, ma mi concentrerò su quelle che meglio esemplificano le intenzioni dei programmatori.
     

    Abathur
    • Abathur ha ricevuto una revisione intensiva.


    In un certo senso Abathur è il progenitore del sistema dei talenti, e una volta definiti, i suoi talenti non sono stati aggiornati per molto tempo. I talenti che Abathur ha oggi sono gli stessi della BlizzCon 2013, ed era quindi necessario che venissero aggiornati. Abbiamo introdotto dei nuovi talenti per questo eroe, e rimosso o modificato quelli che non erano abbastanza efficaci.
    Scorrendo le modifiche ai talenti, noterete che stiamo sperimentando con talenti di livello 20 che modificano abilità base invece di abilità eroiche (come Nido di Locuste o Unica Mente), e con talenti che modificano abilità eroiche a livelli diversi dal 20 (Mutazione Volatile). Abathur si dimostra un maestro dell'evoluzione anche per quanto riguarda la progettazione dei talenti.
     

    • Nuova abilità (R): Mostruosità
      • Trasforma un servitore o una Locusta alleati in una Mostruosità per 60 secondi.


    Infine, Abathur ottiene la sua seconda abilità eroica, basata più sull'assalto individuale che sul combattimento di squadra. La Mostruosità può essere controllata con Simbionte, e non vediamo l'ora di scoprire cosa faranno i giocatori!
     

    • Evoluzione Definitiva (R)
      • I cloni di Evoluzione Definitiva non ereditano l'abilità eroica dell'ospite.
      • Uccidere i cloni di Evoluzione Definitiva fornisce una piccola quantità di PE.
      • Tempo di recupero ridotto da 120 a 80 secondi.


    Questa è una modifica significativa. Pensare al bilanciamento con la copia di una potente abilità eroica è un lavoro molto duro. Per supportare la copia dell'abilità eroica stavamo anche creando molte strane regole a seconda di ogni caso (per eroi attuali e futuri).
    Dal punto di vista della progettazione, Evoluzione Definitiva sembrava una sorta di scelta obbligata: attendi di avere l'abilità eroica e poi usala. Volevamo che i cloni fossero usati in modo più tattico e modulare, e che non fossero solo dei fantocci in grado di usare abilità eroiche.

    Falstad
    • Falstad ha ricevuto una revisione intensiva.


    Falstad era sul nostro elenco da tempo. Volevamo aggiornare i suoi talenti, ma c'erano problemi ancora più urgenti con (W) Esplosione Tonante e (R) Incursione Aerea.
     

    Nuova abilità (W): Parafulmine
    • Danneggia un nemico e infligge danni aggiuntivi in 4 secondi se Falstad rimane vicino al bersaglio.


    Esplosione Tonante non aveva una dinamica di gioco molto varia, e non era molto chiaro né a Falstad né ai nemici che cosa stesse succedendo. A volte un lampo colpiva un bersaglio apparentemente casuale.
    La nuova abilità, Parafulmine, mantiene lo spirito di Esplosione Tonante risolvendo molti dei suoi problemi di ambiguità.

    Nuova abilità (R): Folata Possente
    • Una folata di vento respinge i nemici, rallentandoli del 60%. L'effetto si esaurisce in 3 secondi.


    Molti feedback lamentavano il fatto che Incursione Aerea fosse una scelta sbagliata per Falstad. Uno stordimento ad area con un lungo tempo di ricarica non è una scelta ideale per un assassino a distanza con poca Salute. In alcuni casi di nicchia era divertente sfruttarla, ma per la maggior parte era difficile e poco sfruttabile. Forse un giorno reintrodurremo questa abilità, ma non per Falstad.
    Folata Possente, al contrario, è rapida, efficace e si inserisce perfettamente nella filosofia di Falstad. Non solo lo mantiene al sicuro, ma ho visto delle interessanti combo di (Z) Volo + (R) Folata Possente che spediscono membri della squadra nemica direttamente nella zona del pericolo. 

    Li Li
    • Li Li ha ricevuto una revisione intensiva.


    Li Li ha ottenuto nuovi talenti, e molti talenti precedenti sono stati rinnovati. C'è stato un acceso dibattito su quanto dovessimo cambiare di Li Li. Alla fine, abbiamo deciso che alcuni potenziamenti generali e alcune modifiche ai talenti sarebbero stati sufficienti. Fateci sapere cosa ne pensate!

    Talenti
    Ripresa della Tempesta
    • Il talento è stato rimosso dal gioco.


    C'erano molti problemi con Ripresa della Tempesta. Inizialmente, avrebbe dovuto essere un'opzione di livello 20 per incoraggiare i "tank" (guerrieri) a ingaggiare i nemici. L'idea era buona, ma aveva un prezzo. La durata delle partite si allungava a causa delle resurrezioni rapide e i giocatori che vincevano uno scontro con una squadra con Ripresa della Tempesta non erano adeguatamente ricompensati. Troppi eroi (fra cui Li Li) potevano disporre di Ripresa, anche se non era un talento esattamente adatto a loro. Da ultimo, questo talento metteva in ombra altre abilità speciali degli eroi, come Pietra Nera delle Anime di Diablo.
    Il team di progettazione stava pensando da tempo di eliminare Ripresa della Tempesta: nell'ultima patch l'abbiamo penalizzata, questa volta la eliminiamo. Riteniamo che il gioco ne possa giovare, anche se la rimozione limita le opzioni di alcuni eroi al livello 20. Nei prossimi aggiornamenti introdurremo nuovi talenti che sopperiranno alla rimozione di Ripresa della Tempesta come scelta di livello 20.

      • I mercenari assediatori e combattenti ora infliggono il 50% di danni aggiuntivi.
      • Un giocatore con il talento Capitano di Ventura deve trovarsi nelle vicinanze dei mercenari perché questi ricevano il bonus ai danni.


    Capitano di Ventura aveva un problema di base: un eroe con il talento doveva far parte del gruppo che conquistava un campo di mercenari perché il bonus fosse attivo. In molti casi ci siamo ritrovati a urlare contro il monitor, supplicando i nostri alleati di NON conquistare il campo fino all'arrivo dell'eroe con il talento Capitano di Ventura. Questa dinamica era innaturale e decisamente strana.
    Il nuovo funzionamento è più lineare e non richiede che i giocatori adottino strane tattiche di conquista dei campi.

    Chen
    • Tempesta, Terra e Fuoco (R)
      • Ora ha un tempo di attivazione di 1 secondo, in cui è possibile interrompere l'abilità.


    Abbiamo ricevuto molti feedback sulle "barre vitali secondarie", e siamo d'accordo che ci siano dei problemi in particolare con Ripresa della Tempesta, Tychus e Chen. Affronteremo ognuno di questi problemi in modi diversi, risolvendoli negli aggiornamenti futuri.
    Riteniamo che una seconda barra vitale sia accettabile per un guerriero robusto come Chen, in modo che possa mantenere tutta la funzionalità di Tempesta, Terra e Fuoco. Quello che non consideriamo accettabile è l'utilizzo di questa abilità come possibilità di fuga gratuita quando la Salute scarseggia. Questa modifica vuole incentivare un utilizzo aggressivo e non difensivo di Tempesta, Terra e Fuoco, e stimolare nuove risposte da parte dei nemici.

    Sparachiodi
    • Robo-Goblin (R)
      • Ora è un'abilità eroica passiva sempre attiva. Sparachiodi può utilizzare una cavalcatura anche dopo aver scelto questa abilità eroica.
      • Bonus ai danni ridotto dal 250% al 150%.


    L'idea di un'abilità eroica permanente ci girava in testa da un po'. Vorremmo esplorare alcune opzioni di abilità eroiche come questa. In questo caso specifico, ci piace una dinamica di gioco in cui Sparachiodi è costantemente più forte e interagisce in modo diverso con la mappa. 
     

    Illidan
    • Metamorfosi (R)
      • Forma Demoniaca (Talento)
        • Non impedisce a Illidan di usare una cavalcatura, ma non aumenta più la velocità di movimento fuori dal combattimento.


    A volte le modifiche non sono dovute a problemi di bilanciamento o progettazione, ma derivano dal nostro fare ordine dopo lunghi periodi di sviluppo. Capita spesso nel nostro ambiente. Quando abbiamo pensato a Forma Demoniaca, eravamo preoccupati che i giocatori non l'avrebbero scelto se avessero dovuto rinunciare alla cavalcatura per il resto della partita. Abbiamo aggiunto l'aumento alla velocità di movimento fuori dal combattimento per risolvere questo problema. Ora che abbiamo il supporto artistico per mantenere la possibilità di avere una cavalcatura, possiamo rimuovere quella regola di troppo.

    Kerrigan
    • Ultralisca (R)
      • L'Ultralisca può cambiare bersaglio mediante il tasto "R".


    Vedete che facciamo davvero caso ai vostri feedback?
     

    Tychus

    • Mitragliatrice (Tratto distintivo)
      • Tychus non deve più caricare la Mitragliatrice per attaccare. Invece, attacca all'istante facendo fuoco a una velocità ridotta, che aumenta fino a raggiungere la velocità massima dopo 1,5 secondi.


    Molti giocatori (soprattutto quelli nuovi) sono confusi dall'utilizzare un attacco di Tychus che apparentemente non fa nulla. In questo modo, i giocatori ottengono sempre una risposta per le loro azioni.
     


    Correzione dei problemi
    Campi di battaglia
    • I servitori catapulta non infliggono più la metà dei danni e infliggono di nuovo danni ad area attorno al bersaglio.


    Questo riguarda una penalità non intenzionale che allungava i tempi delle partite. Abbinata all'aumento dell'integrità del nucleo dell'ultimo aggiornamento, provocava l'allungamento eccessivo dei tempi di gioco. Sottolineo questo bug perché uno dei principali intenti alla base delle scelte di progettazione è mantenere una durata delle partite non troppo elevata. Prima di apportare modifiche al nucleo o alle altre strutture volevamo risolvere questo problema e valutarne gli effetti in un ambiente live.

    Sky Temple, a brand new 3-lane Battleground, has been added to Heroes of the Storm and is now available for play in all game modes!

    • Temples at the center of each lane will activate after 90 seconds, and can be captured to fire devastating beams of energy at enemy Structures.
      • Beware! Once a Temple has been captured, its Guardians will rise and attempt to remove players by force. Defeat them to maintain control of an active Temple.
      • A Temple will cease firing shortly after all players have left its grounds, and can then be recaptured by either team. Be ready to fend off enemy players who seek to wrest control of the Temples for their own benefit.
    • One, two, or three Temples will activate at a time, and Temple activation will occur periodically throughout a game.
    • Temples will deactivate once their Ammunition is depleted.

    USER INTERFACE

    General

    • Versus Mode has been renamed to Quick Match.
    • All Daily Quests can now be completed in Practice Mode.

    Hero League

    • Initial implementation for Hero League, the first Ranked Play mode in Heroes of the Storm, has been added to the game!
      • With Hero League, players will be able to queue up alone, or in a party of any size, for ranked, competitive matches against others of similar skill and party size.
      • In order to queue for Hero League, players must meet the following requirements:
        • Reach Level 30 or higher.
        • Own 10 or more Heroes (weekly free rotation Heroes do not count toward this requirement.)
    • Draft Mode
      • After finding a match, players will enter Draft Mode, in which teams will take turns picking the Heroes they’d like to use for the upcoming game.
      • Coin Toss
        • A coin toss will determine which team will pick first.
        • The team that wins the coin toss will be prompted to pick one Hero on the first turn, after which, teams will alternate picking two Heroes per turn until just one player remains on the team that lost the coin toss.
      • Hero Selection
        • Players may only choose from the pool of Heroes that they already own.
        • Each player will have 30 seconds to select a Hero during their turn. If no selection is made, a Hero will be locked in automatically.
        • Once locked in, a Hero can no longer be selected by any other player.
    • Points and Ranks
      • All Hero League players will be ranked individually, starting at Rank 50.
        • Win games to earn points that count toward promotion to the next rank, up to a maximum of Rank 1.
        • Losing games will result in a loss of points, and enough losses can cause demotion to the previous rank (though not below Rank 50.)
      • Players can view their own Rank and win/loss record at any time on the Hero League Play Screen.
    • Game Abandonment
      • A player that leaves an in-progress Hero League or Quick Match game will not be allowed to queue for Ranked Play until a new Quick Match game is completed.
      • Leaving a Hero League game during Draft Mode will result in a loss of 300 ranked points in addition to the above penalty, and all of that player’s party members at the time of Draft Mode abandonment will also receive these penalties.

    Custom Games

    • The “Lobby Mode” dropdown found at the top-right corner of Custom Game lobbies has been enabled, and can now be used to switch between Hero Select formats:
      • Standard - Mirrors the same Hero Select format used in Quick Match games.
      • Draft Mode - Consists of two options:
        • Predetermined - Causes Hero Select to mirror the same Draft Mode format used for Hero League games.
        • First Come First Served (FCFS) - Utilizes a different Draft Mode format, which allows each team to freely decide the order in which its players will select their Heroes.

    For a much more in-depth look at the features mentioned above, check out our recent Hero League and Draft Mode blog post. Furthermore, kindly keep in mind that today’s addition of Hero League and Draft Mode represent an early look at Ranked Play, and a number of improvements are planned for each of these features with future game updates. Feel free to share your thoughts on these features with us using the official feedback forums.
