**Update: Patch Notes are now available.

This is a big patch.  Here are the highlights.

  • New Battleground - Tomb of the Spider Queen.
  • New Hero - Sylvanas Windrunner
  • "Significantly reduced" the chance that you will get the same battleground twice in a row.
  • Max Hero level is now 20
  • New Player Rewards
    • Stimpacks Gold, etc.
  • Team League added.
  • End of Game Score Screens revamped.
  • An enormous amount of Hero changes.

Once the servers come back up (estimated 11:00 a.m. PDT) you will still need to grab a 700+MB patch to play Heroes of the Storm.     Those of you with access to your Battle.net launcher can grab it now if you attempt to login. 

Will Sylvanas and a new map appear?  Probably.  

How will this new Hero change the game?   

Time will tell.... see you in the Nexus!
