Heroes of the Storm’s Halloween patch brings Junkrat, kills XP and Vista support As was foreseen a week ago, both Junkrat and the Hallow’s End event have made their way into Heroes of the Storm.

What makes a tank in Heroes of the Storm? The topic of what makes a tank in Heroes of the Storm tends to come up often.

This week brings a pretty standard rotation to Heroes of the Storm After the excitement of last week with Ana, Volskaya, pachimari mania, and a selection of both nerfs and buffs, this week seems awfully quiet. In fact, all we have is a fresh rotation of heroes and sales, a new weekly brawl, and a handful of bug fixes. A bit boring, to be sure, but the...

How could Heroes of the Storm’s pre-match events be made better? This week, we saw the launch of a new mini-game sort of event in Heroes of the Storm. I speak, of course, of Pachimari Mania. The aforementioned event requires players to run around their base before a match officially starts and click on boxes. One of said boxes will have a golden Pachimari in it,...
