Heroes of the Storm's big 2018 update includes performance-based matchmaking

November 03, 2017 1 min read

After significant changes to Heroes of the Storm's "out-of-game experience" with the 2.0 update, Blizzard is now turning its attention toward the game's core with a planned 2018 gameplay update that will see numerous fan-requested improvements and tweaks.

As quickly summarized at BlizzCon 2017, we can expect performance-based matchmaking, voice chat, a new camera, laning improvements, a stealth rework, and evolved battleground mechanics.

That first point is a huge deal. Blizzard is rethinking its "traditional win/loss system" and will take into account your personal performance "whether you win or lose," according to senior producer Kaeo Milker.
