It’s Time to Take Alterac Pass by Storm!

We hope your training exercises with General Vanndar or General Drek’Thar have been successful, because Alterac Pass is now available for play in all non-ranked game modes, including Custom Games.


Non-Ranked Battleground Pools Temporarily Reduced

In order to maximize each soldier’s exposure to Alterac Pass, the number of Battlegrounds available for play in Versus A.I., Quick Match, and Unranked matchmaking queues have been temporarily reduced. This reduction will remain in place until the Echoes of Alterac event concludes on July 9. All of the Battlegrounds removed from the non-ranked pool will remain available for play in Custom Games.

Reduced Battleground Pool
Alterac Pass
Braxis Holdout
Cursed Hollow
Dragon Shire
Infernal Shrines
Tomb of the Spider Queen

Please note: Hero League and Team League Battleground pools have not been adjusted, as Alterac Pass will not be available in ranked play until the week of July 9.

Grab your gear, set your loadouts, and report immediately to Alterac Pass for additional orders from your faction's General. We’ll see you on the front lines!

Heroes Global Championship - Mid-Season Brawl Grand Finals Recap
"Where were you when gods bled?" - Khaldor

This Monday evening saw what many have called the best Heroes tournament grand finals to date. Gen.G and Team Dignitas went head-to-head in an incredible close series of matches that ended up going to the absolute maximum number of games. After one last match that could have gone either way, Gen.G managed to pull it off to become the 2018 Mid-Season Brawl champions! Massive congratulations from us at MMO-Champion for playing a nigh-flawless tournament and pulling off the win at the end.


As these games are quite unpredictable and spectacular, we won't be giving too many details away here. However, the official Heroes Esports Youtube channel has all the tournament's games ready for video-on-demand! If you are even remotely interested in Heroes of the Storm, the matches of this Grand Finals simply cannot be missed. Keep an eye out for Game 5 in particular.

    Does anyone have an idea what is the chance of getting to play AV in quick match or vs AI?

    They really should have made AV the brawl for the first week that it came out IMO.

    Played four AI games since patch, two of them Alterac Pass. Not exactly ample data, but wouldn't be surprised if your chance to get it was 50% indeed.
