Alterac Pass Balance Changes – July 3, 2018
Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment

We’ve just applied a number of balance changes to the Alterac Pass Battleground.


Alterac Pass
  • Generals
    • Health reduced from 24,000 to 20,000.
    • Now gain 405 maximum Health every minute until minute 21 (excluding minute 1).
  • Cavalry
    • No longer gain additional Armor for nearby Heroes.
    • Health reduced from 10,000 to 8,000.
    • Health scaling increased by 19%.
    • Damage reduced from 85 to 65.
    • Damage scaling increased by 22%.
  • Reaver Minions
    • Damage scaling increased by 50%.

Developer Comment: We’re making a few changes to Alterac Pass to reduce the frequency that one team can run away with an early lead, while still keeping the average game time roughly in line with our other Battlegrounds. We’re removing the mechanic that grants Cavalry additional Armor for every allied Hero in their aura, since we feel that multi-Hero pushes are already strong enough. We’ve also made Health scaling adjustments so that Vanndar and Drek’thar (the Core replacements) won’t be demolished as quickly by late game Heroes that have outscaled them and reduced their Armor. However, we are increasing the scaling of Cavalry and Reavers (Catapult replacements), so that games still end in a timely fashion. This should only come into play during games that become prolonged.

Heroes of the Storm PTR Notes – July 2, 2018
Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment

Quick Navigation:

Ranked Play

Third Ban
  • A third Hero ban has been added to draft modes as part of the initial ban phase.
    • During the initial ban phase, teams will alternate until each has banned two Heroes.
    • Ban and pick times have been adjusted in order to offset the addition of the new ban.
  • The number of level 5+ Heroes required to participate in Hero League has been increased from 14 to 16 to ensure players will always have a Hero available if they pick last.

Rank Point Decay
  • Diamond, Master, and Grand Master Hero League players who have placed in the current season but haven’t completed any games in a while will be considered “inactive”.
  • Once a player becomes inactive, they will receive a small amount of rank and MMR decay each day until they complete one Hero League match.
    • Diamond, Master, and Grand Master each have their own threshold for inactivity.
    • Players can earn additional “grace period” days by regularly playing Hero League matches during the current season.
  • Inactive players can avoid decay and regain active status by playing a single Hero League match to completion.

League Inactive Days Before Decay Extra "Grace Period" Days
Diamond 20 10
Master 15 10
Grand Master 10 10

Seeding Changes
  • Players who enter ranked play for the first time can no longer be seeded into placement matches higher than Gold 5.
  • Players who return to Hero League after an extended break will no longer be re-seeded into placement matches based on their performance in other modes.

Hero League Matchmaking Changes
  • Ratings Rather Than Points
    • For Master and Grand Master players, the Master-level players they are matched with and against are now determined by skill rating, and rank points no longer play a role.
      • This should provide better experiences for players of very high skill levels who start playing later in a season.
      • These players’ games should have allies and opponents of more consistent skill levels, which also match their own.
  • Match Quality Restrictions and Notifications
    • Players below Master who have waited fewer than three minutes in queue will not be placed into any matches that are outside of the game quality restrictions that would have been used if the match had been formed around that player.
    • Players will now receive a notification in the UI when these quality restrictions are expanded in order to help them find a match more quickly.
  • Stricter Rank Difference Requirements
    • Master and Grand Master players will now only be matched with allies and opponents who are within 1 division of their own ranks. This means:
      • Master players can be matched with players who are either ranked Diamond 1 or Grand Master, but never both.
      • Grand Master players will not be matched with players below Masters.
    • This restriction will not loosen for players in Europe and North America. However, it can loosen for players in other regions after they have waited in queue for 1 hour.
  • Stricter Rating Differences
    • Master and Grand Master players now have narrower ranges of acceptable skill ratings for the players they are matched with. For example:
      • It is extremely unlikely that a top Grand Master player will be matched with a Master who is on the cusp of demotion to Diamond.
      • If a Master player is placed into a Grand Master game, it is because that player’s skill rating is very similar to that of the Grand Master players.
        • In this situation, the Master player’s ranked points have not yet caught up to their rating.


  • Heroes can no longer Heal, Shield, or target allied Mercenaries with Abilities unless an Ability specifically states that Mercenaries are valid targets.

Alterac Pass
  • Ice Giants
    • Attack speed reduced by approximately 30%.
    • Neutral Ice Giant Attack damage increased from 240 to 312.
    • Captured Ice Giant Attack damage increased from 400 to 520.
  • Cavalry
    • The damage bonus provided by Cavalry units no longer scales with each completed event. The damage bonus provided by Cavalry units is now a flat 10%, and no longer scales with each completed event.

Battlefield of Eternity
  • Minimap
    • The Minimap icons that represent Immortals during an event have received updates.
      • The opposing Immortal now uses an icon depicting crossed axes, while the allied Immortal displays a shield icon.
      • This should help players more quickly identify which Immortal to attack and which to defend.

Braxis Holdout
  • Beacons
    • Now become contested immediately when Heroes from both teams are on the point.
  • Zerg Waves
    • The baseline zerg wave has been strengthened significantly.
      • This should encourage teams to split up in order to defend against an incoming zerg wave, rather than send all five players to attack with an allied wave.
  • Beacon Progress Bars
    • The progress bars in the lower-right corner of the screen have received visual updates to coincide with the above changes.




  • Blinding Light (W)
    • Now also deals 50 damage (+4% per level) to enemies in the target area.


  • Time Trap (E)
    • Melee Heroes who can see a Time Trap can now use melee attacks to destroy it without triggering its effects.

Developer Comment: We're extremely excited to bring Raynor’s long-awaited rework to the Nexus! We've been reading and absorbing all the amazing feedback that you have sent us over the past year and think the new design will do him justice. We've massively increased his wave-clear potential with a new Trait and completely overhauled his Talent tree (one of the oldest in the game). Raynor mains should have a whole new set of tools to play around with while new users should still be able to pick him up and right-click their way to victory. We have been having a ton of fun with the changes and hope you do as well. As always, please send us any feedback you have and get ready to fill your enemies full of daylight!

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a number of typo and tooltip errors across several aspects of the game.

  • Diablo: Will no longer appear to face the wrong direction while walking after Shadow Charge is interrupted.
  • Malthael: Fear the Reaper’s icon art in the buff bar now correctly matches its icon art in the Talent pane.

  • Haunted Mines: Fixed an issue that could cause the Grave Golem in the Mines to stop issuing Basic Attacks and casting its Root Ability when defending against nearby Heroes.
  • Warhead Junction: Visual effects created by Boss and Podling Abilities are no longer visible through the Fog of War.
  • Try Mode: Changing the Enemy Hero setting to None and then using the Set Level button no longer causes an enemy Hero to spawn.

Heroes, Abilities, and Talents
  • Abilities: Fixed an issue in which certain Abilities, like Stukov’s Lurking Arm, could be unintentionally canceled immediately after casting.
  • Alarak: Deadly Charge will now always fire in the direction the player clicked, instead of the direction Alarak was facing when the Ability was cast.
  • Alexstrasza: Can no longer use Cleansing Flame to switch between the upper and lower levels of Haunted Mines.
  • Alexstrasza: Fixed an issue that could cause Cleansing Flame to fail if it was cast in the same moment that Dragonqueen was ending.
  • Cassia: Fixed an issue in which the Plate of the Whale Talent required more Basic Attacks to be absorbed per Health Regeneration stack than intended.
  • Deckard: Can now correctly use Healing Potions while affected by Zarya’s Graviton Surge.
  • Deckard: Canceling Stay Awhile and Listen no longer prevents the next source of damage from waking Sleeping enemies.
  • Diablo: No longer becomes unable to use any Abilities if Shadow Charge fails to cast.
  • Diablo: Fixed an issue that could prevent Diablo from using additional Abilities after casting Shadow Charge on an enemy who is using a dash, like Chen’s Flying Kick or Illidan’s Dive.
  • D.Va: Shift-queuing movement commands during Boosters no longer causes D.Va to become stuck indefinitely.
  • Garrosh: Can now correctly cast Into the Fray on Unstoppable allied Heroes.
  • Garrosh: Warlord’s Challenge no longer cancels Abilities that end upon taking damage, like Muradin’s Second Wind or Fenix’s Shield Capacitor.
  • Nova: After learning Anti-Armor Shells, the Target Info Panel now displays the correct amount of Basic Attack damage dealt.
  • Sleep: Damage over time effects that do not initially apply damage, like Gul’dan’s Corruption and Blaze’s Combustion, will now correctly wake Sleeping enemies.
  • Stukov: Healing Pathogen’s timer is no longer visually removed if the target becomes Polymorphed.
  • Takedown Credit: Fixed an issue in which takedown credit could still be granted to a Hero even if they left combat long before the target was killed.
  • The Butcher: Ruthless Onslaught’s visual effects will no longer persist on the target if they interrupt the Ability by entering Stealth.
  • Valeera: Sinister Strike’s targeting indicator now more closely matches the Ability’s area of effect.
  • Varian: Colossus Smash now moves Varian to a valid landing location, rather than placing him within a space that’s already occupied by the target.

  • Sonya: The La Pantera Sonya skin no longer plays sword impact sound effects when attacking Structures.

July 1st Teaser
In a highly unusual move, the Heroes of the Storm Twitter account just posted a teaser on a Sunday. Is this teasing a hero, a new event, or something else entirely?
