  • Artanis will be available for purchase from the in-game Shop for all players starting on Tuesday, October 27.

    • Dash forward to deal damage to enemies, then return to deal significantly more damage.

    • Fire a Phase Prism that deals damage to a Hero and swaps your position with theirs.

Shop Edit

Bundles
  • The following bundles have been removed from the in-game Shop:
    • Apothecary Lt. Morales Bundle
    • Marshal Raynor Bundle
    • Altered Fates Bundle
    • Altered Fates Ultimate Bundle
Price Changes
  • Lt. Morales’ price has been reduced from 15,000 to 10,000 Gold

System Changes Edit

Ranked Draft Lobbies
  • Draft Mode AFK Penalty
    • Players failing to select a Hero in Hero League draft lobbies will no longer be granted a random Hero. Instead, the AFK player will now receive leaver penalties and the game lobby will disband, placing all remaining players back at the queue screen.
      • NOTE: Players who pre-select a Hero but do not lock in will not be punished under this new system. Using that time to communicate with your team is expected. Players will be locked in with their selected hero, if it is still available, once their selection timer runs out.
  • Increased Selection Time
    • The time allotted to select your hero in Hero League and Team League draft lobbies has been increased from 30 to 45 seconds.
Matchmaking
  • Maximum queue time has been increased from 360 to 600 seconds.
  • Queue times have been improved for new players.

Bug Fixes Edit

General
Heroes and Talents
  • Fixed an issue preventing Abathur’s Toxic Nests from dealing splash damage.
  • Nazeebo’s Corpse Spiders and Zombie Wall Abilities will now deal damage to Immortals on the Battlefield of Eternity battleground.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the player’s camera to remain locked on Lt. Morales’ Medivac Dropship after exiting it with Camera Lock enabled.
