Heroes of the Storm to be featured in PC Gaming Show at E3

Image title
Intriguing news is coming from Blizzard - HOTS will be featured at E3! With some hints from the developers, like new art showing Leoric and new skins, or developers telling us that there is also one other map apart from Battlefields of Eternity developed, we can guess that more content will be revealed at PC Gaming Show!
In official press release says that show will be hosted by Day9 and will start at 3 am CEST on June the 17th. More info and details as well as StarCraft 2 event related info by the links below.

E3 predictions by HeroesEvo

Image title
With the announcement of HOTS as one of the games at E3 HeroesEvo took their time to research possible upcoming content based on the leaks, rumors and hints from the developers!
Sleeze suggests that, based on the amount of supports game currently has, we might end up getting not only Butcher, who is officially announced, and Leoric, who is hinted on recently released art, but also a support from Diablo universe. Author also thinks that there will be a lot of skins, based on the art and the name of the event, - right now only Hell themed mount is revealed, so it's logical that the Heaven themed mount will also be introduced. Same goes in terms of heroes. Art revealed new Nova and Diablo skins. Month ago Blizzard showcased video with upcoming skins for Tychus, Valla and probably Raynor, and they haven’t been released yet. Lastly, let's talk about the map(s). In the Mayhem Begins event developers were talking about other map, that is also being developed, apart from already announced Battlefields of Eternity. So, probably, we are to expect another Diablo themed map!

Ban system to arrive in HOTS this summer!

  

Dustin Browder, the game director of Heroes of the Storm, has confirmed in his twitter that in some esport events, this summer, developers will experiment with ban systems to figure out the best ban system for the game. Judging by the tweet, it will take time to add this anticipated feature in the game. That means that people will have to use 3rd party sites and systems meanwhile, if they want to have bans. That leaves majority of the community without proper ban system, since current 3rd party solutions are viable only for tournament participants, excluding usual hero league or quick match players!
