During this weekend's BlizzCon 2018, Heroes of the Storm introduced some serious shake ups coming to the game that were largely overshadowed by other convention news. In one of the biggest pieces of news, the team revealed that the Hero Roster is going to undergo some serious retooling in the near future.

    A much, MUCH needed shake up to the roster. I have always hated it when playing with AI companions when we'd get Tassadar instead of a healer. :D

    Indeed this makes a lot more sense. Also I agree with the ideas in the video for tags and badges.
    Nowadays people continue not to understand how the game works. Often times I would have games where people would pick Azmodan and Jaina for example not realizing that they are both mages.
    The tag idea is really good because I definitely don't want a Sylvanas and Zagara for ranged assassins on my team at the same time. With the new system without any clarification people will continue to mistake what certain heroes are, like Zagara for example.
    Also the badge idea is good because I'm tired of having to check all their profiles to see which person plays what, so that I can fill the proper role.

    Still I think they have bigger issue at the moment which is the MM system. It's horrible when in Master/Diamond I get people who don't know which heroes counter their picks. Every 2nd game I would have someone who picks last and selfcounters himself by picking a hero that the whole enemy team counters it... When that happens and knowing an individual player can't really carry in HotS the end result is already clear. There's also people who are obviously not at that skill level, but get put in higher ranks. Same for lower ranks. Some times good players will get put in lower ranks and things are pretty much the same.

    I would love it if they make it that the highest a person can place after placement matches is gold or worst case plat 5. That way anyone who makes it beyond that will be actually in their right place and anyone who stays/fall below that is in their place. Games will be a lot more balanced and therefore more fun. Currently 2 out of 3 games are snowball loses cause 1 team is vastly better than the other which shouldn't be the case, especially in higher ranked games.

    Bah I wanted more info than just "rework is coming" and "hook is still there". I only like to play Stitches, hopefully he is still viable after the rework.
