In its massive 2018 update -- which hit servers yesterday -- Heroes of the Storm implemented skill-based ranking for its two ranked modes, Hero League and Team League.
When jumping from Quick Match to Hero/Team League (or just watching tournament play) in Heroes of the Storm, one of the biggest gameplay changes is the draft system.
Coming in the next Heroes of the Storm game update is a big change for players competing in the ranked Hero League: players will only be able to queue solo or in parties of two.
The new information coming from Gamescom is still rolling in.
Although Team League is a feature that was announced earlier in the month during the Heroes of the Storm session at PAX East, Blizzard released more in-depth information on how the format will work.
There are a number of new changes in the current closed beta patch to Heroes of the Storm. The most notable additions today are the Sylvanas Hero, the Spider Queen map and Team League, a new style of ranked play.
