Hots Logs MMR wipe, Tychus cigar drama and more! Fourth edition of Hot(S) NEWS highlights!

Image title


      Hots Logs won’t wipe MMR!



Explanation has been posted on Reddit by Ben Barret(HL creator) on the topic of the MMR data wipe.
Ben says that after long consideration he decided not to wipe MMR.
Instead the replay parsing speed was increased, in addition to this all the replays that are more than 2 month old from the last HL update won’t be calculated.
If you haven’t tried this awesome statistic tool yet, now is the perfect time.

      Leave Britney Tychus alone!



Reddit drama revolved around Tychus cigar disappearance with the recent Hots update.
Users where unsatisfied with the change to his in game 3d portrait and demanded the return of cigar.
Developers stated that the issue is more complicated that it seems at first glance. Problem lies in Heroes being a multi-region game. Different regions have different ratings and restrictions. So developers had few options how to proceed with the issue and in the end they decided to solve it in a more efficient way in terms of resource management and just remove the cigar.
You can embrace the soap drama in more detailed way by the link bellow.
