Nexus Anomalies

Nexus Anomalies are seasonal gameplay changes that directly affect all game modes in Heroes of the Storm. These events will last the entire season, allowing us time to receive feedback on them. Depending on this evaluation, some of them may become permanent additions to the game, while others may just be a limited time event.

The second Nexus Anomaly has arrived! In order to make game experiences better for the majority, we’re changing how Quick Match works since its our current most played mode. Players will no longer be able to queue to any hero they desire and instead play Unranked draft.

Quick Match

  • Renamed to Draft Match.
  • Players will no longer be able to queue with any hero they want, instead they will be sent to a draft where they have to pick their heroes before the game starts.

Unranked

I still can’t figure out whether parts of the patch notes are an April Fools or not :thinking:

I will be careful and say 95% of the patch notes are trolling. Maybe 97%.

The lower border of the patch notes says “happy april fools btw” so I’m anxious to be happy for any of this :smiley: But I would think at least the balance notes are for real?

Have you seen the overwatch googly eyes? :eyes:

Yeah Mercy has a skin in this patch that shows those too.

For second I thought to myself there is no way devs would ever bring Morales clone with Mercy… Then I realized the date. Good one! :+1:

Can’t wait to experiment with those Blaze changes.
Unfortunately, there’s not enough changes for Valeera in these patch notes, gonna have to report this to the Society of Valeera Mains. (All two of them.)

Aw I wanted Vashj :frowning: It’s cool though coz I love this patch!

lmfao has anyone seen the Warden buff vs Illidan and vice-versa? I cracked up hard. Is that real? That’s so witty and funny as! I suppose Illidan gets a -15 % less healing from Malfurion while Tyrande gets a 15% bonus healing. (Don’t ask me why it’s 2 healer’s comp, but Malfurion’s love is stronger then this + I’m going with lore common-sense)

Lol Illidan can’t be countered by blinds. I hope that one is real!!

Wait a minute, is this an April Fool’s joke? MOD!!!

Well, if you look closer into the patch you might find something else too…
