Keos Heroes of the Storm News Leave a Comment

The first official Heroes of the Storm season is coming to a close the week of September 12th. Blizzard has a few changes in store for Season 2 and we have complied that info for you reading pleasure. 

SEASON ROLL DATES

Season 2 will begin as soon as our next patch downloads for each region. Season start and end dates are below:

  • Season 2 Start – Week of September 12th
  • Season 2 End – Week of December 12th
GRAND MASTER LEAGUE CHANGES

Grand Master League 500-player limit has been reduced to 200. 

PROMOTION AND DEMOTION MATCH CHANGES

Changes for the start of Season 2 to promotion and demotion are as follows:

  • You’ll no longer receive a flat 250 ranked point adjustment after winning a promotion match or losing a demotion match. Instead, these matches will now award or remove the same amount of points as a normal ranked game.
  • When you head into a promotion match, any points you earned beyond the 1,000-point division cap during the prior game will now be stored and applied at the end of your promotion match.
    • Winning a promotion match will now award you with the points that were stored prior to that match, in addition to the normal ranked points you’ll earn for the win.
    • Losing a promotion match will now subtract the normal ranked points for a loss, minus the number of excess ranked points that were stored prior to your promotion match.
  • Demotion matches do not store lost ranked points, which means you’ll only lose the normal amount of ranked points if you’re defeated during a demotion match.
SEASON 2 RANKED REWARDS

Players who manage to rise the ranks in season 2 will be awarded new portrait, mount, and gold rewards. Here is a look at the rewards:

Hey Y’all!
Keos (Kay-oos) here I have been playing wow since vanilla. Back then i was a Warrior and was a main tank MC and other 40 Man raids. Towards the end of BC i became a Rogue. Not until WOTLK I fell in love with the class i call my main now, the Death Knight. I am not the hardcore raider that i use to be anymore. I still have the passion for WOW like the first day i opened the game for the first time. I most recently have started my adventure of discovering Azeroth from the side of the Alliance. Its an honor to be part of this great team of some of the greatest people I have meet in my adventures in Azeroth.
