    The sum of levels of all the heroes that you ever leveled in the game. You will get the appropriate amount of loot boxes when the patch goes live .

    As someone who was in the first alpha tester wave and quit (mostly) during open beta, the changes look very compelling but the progression system wasn't the reason I quit to begin with.

    They should probably tackle the issue of lack of positive individual impact on a games' outcome, as well as try to raise the general skill ceiling of the game for player retention.
    The game is just too damn easy on a mechanical/per-player basis.

    I'll probably pop in a play a few games again for funsies but I can't guarantee I won't get bored mid-match and just alt+f4 like the last several times I tried picking the game up again.

    The only way I play this game is with a full 5made to just dick around and roll over the enemy, new progression system looks okay I guess? Not enough to make this my main game ever again.
    Loot crates are a terrible trend in gaming.

    is there a link to see all the new skins in one place ?


    also am I understanding correctly that just from playing the game you MAINLY get gold and loot boxes .. ? and loot boxes + duplicates give you shards .. these are consistent rewards for playing, you seem to get a common loot box for every level

    whereas gems are mainly for real money ? you do get a one time reward of 1000 gems and then 150 gems every 25 levels, but thats not really much compared to gold or a loot box every level

    To be fair the drop rates are pretty good in comparison to the Overwatch loot crates.

    People like you are what's wrong with the game. Yes you cannot solo carry every game and yes perhaps you as a player have relatively less snowballing power than in other moba's. With that being said, the skill ceiling in hots is plenty high enough. There's a reason some of us are high grand masters and others aren't. But alt-f4ing during games? Shame on you man. Just learn to play the game.

    I'm not going to argue whether the game is 'dead", because I simply don't know, but this statement doesn't feel right.

    1. The issues you listed (DCs, matchmaking) don't sound like something that the UI designers, artists and other devs who created this "meaningless shit", as you put it, would be able to help with anyway. So... I don't really see how an artist making a couple of sprays instead of working on networking issues he most likely knows nothing about is "wasting resources".

    2. I would not agree that this is meaningless. If you look how crazy people can get about their cosmetics in other games... Well, this might actually make a lot of people very happy and get them excited to play the game.

    How could I be what's wrong with the game when I haven't played it in months? lol

    The skill ceiling is extremely, extremely low on a mechanical/individual standpoint. I'm not talking about grouped (as in premade teams) competitive play.

    I never said there was a flat skill curve. I'm just saying the skill ceiling is extremely limiting as an individual. Btw, during open beta I was rank 1.
    I'm so far removed from that point it's probably not even worth noting.

    I understand it's sort of a scumbag thing to do but I just don't care. I'm not going to force myself to endure 15~ minutes of shit game if I don't have to (and I don't, thankfully.) and seeing as I've never been punished once for leaving obviously Blizzard doesn't seem to think it's a problem.
    Also, "just learn to play the game." I'll leave my comment on that as: lol

    I just got in, I got 10 lootboxes based on the hero levels I had in total on the ptr (which wasn't much).

    You can reroll the rewards you get from a lootbox by using 250 gold !!! Got a crap reward from opening a rare chest, I rerolled and promptly got two rare skins instead.

    Cost to reroll goes up the more you reroll.
    Did you level the heroes on the PTR or was there a way to copy your HoTS account stuff over? Cuz I'm kinda lazy

    I leveled the heroes on the PTR. My level on the actual game would be much higher when it goes live.

    Awww okay. I was kind of hoping they finally let our accounts carry over xD. Still can't wait for this to go live.

    Too many skins... TOO MANY NEW STUFF FOR WHICH IM HYPED!

    I wonder only... If i allready got Artanis on lvl 9, i will get loot boxes for him or not?
    Whatever...

    Star Queen Ming is just about the only thing I need in life.

    I can't really shake off the feeling that this is something of a last-ditch attempt at making HotS popular before Blizzard stops investing in it. If they manage to attract many new and returning players, they will continue rolling out meaningful updates, if not, it may gradually be put on life support. Let's be honest, HotS doesn't have many players - and this is coming from a dedicated HotS player.

    I really don't like the gem system. I liked being able to pay exactly the amount I wanted for a hero or cosmetic. I hate having an excess of real money items because it's a waste.

    Gifting is something that should have been in the game a long time ago.

    Other than those things, this looks to be a fantastic update.
