Heroes Of The Storm Patch Notes - September 4, 2018
It is Tuesday, and Mephisto is now live in the US! The patch notes are identical to those of the PTR last week, so you can find them right here.

And fret not if you are in the EU. Mephisto will make you unleash all your hatred for a release between 0200 and 0400 tonight.


Paid Loot Boxes And Loot Chests Disabled For Players In Belgium
Blizzard posted a quick update last week to let everyone know that players in Belgium will no longer be able to buy loot boxes due to recent changes in local gambling laws.

While we at Blizzard were surprised by this conclusion and do not share the same opinion, we have decided to comply with their interpretation of Belgian law. As a result, we have no choice but to implement measures that will prevent Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm players located in Belgium from purchasing in-game loot boxes and loot chests with real money and gems.

No matter what, we want to make sure that our players around the world have the best entertainment experience possible. While players in Belgium will no longer be able to purchase paid loot boxes in Overwatch and loot chests in Heroes of the Storm, they’ll still be able to earn them by playing the games, and they’ll still have access to all in-game content.

These measures will be implemented shortly. We also remain open to further discussions with the Belgian Gaming Commission and Ministry of Justice on this topic.
