Heroes of the Storm Patch 28.4

Blizzard Entertainment deployed Patch 28.4 on Oct 25 to address a few bug fixes. There is no heroes balance in this patch.

BUG FIXES

AI

  • Tutorial: Fixed an issue causing AI Heroes to ignore certain objectives during tutorial missions.
  • Blackheart‘s Bay: Fixed an issue that could cause Minions and Summons to become stuck when attempting to attack the Keep and standalone Tower in the Middle Lane.

 

Heroes, Abilities, and Talents.

  • D.Va: Fixed an issue preventing Boosters from receiving the Rush-down Talent’s cooldown reduction bonus if D.Va was attacking an enemy shortly before activating Boosters.
  • Junrat: Using Concussion Mine to destroy D.va’s Mech and knock her into the terrain will no longer remove her from the Battleground until she respawns.

 

User Interface

  • Loadouts: Switching Skins using the Loadout menu will now correctly display that Skin during a Hero Select.

My Heroes of the Storm Wishlist: Deathwing and Blackthorne

Heroes of the Storm has been a wild ride for me since Blizzard Entertainment invited me to the Technical Alpha. I played through the Beta, and then have steadily played the game since its official launch (June 2, 2015).

I haven’t played as much as I wish, because aside from playing video games, I am bound to updating the Blizzplanet websites nigh on a daily basis. I currently own all 70 Heroes; and 48 of them are Above level 10. The other ones are between level 5-9, except Cho and Garrosh. Currently at Player Level 673. I usually have played them in the PTR, too. So that’s a lot of gameplay and a lot of time invested in Heroes of the Storm.

I have barely needed to purchase new heroes with real money. I have purchased probably 3 heroes that way, and I have purchased all the remaining heroes with gold: which is obtained by completing quests, playing games, or by leveling heroes up to level 5, 10, or 15 (which provide large amounts of gold).

 

Starting a Career in the eSports Industry

Have you ever wondered about the massive army of people who work behind the scenes of the eSports industry?

The eSports industry is becoming a quickly growing source of some top-quality jobs. Perhaps your dream has always been to become a pro gamer and join one of the top teams – and who hasn’t had the fantasy of becoming the next Li Peng at one time or another?

However, if you know in reality that you’re never going to reach that level there are still ways of becoming part of the competitive video gaming world with a job in a supporting or developmental role.

It’s big business for a reason. There’s a massive army of fans hungry for live streaming of the gaming competitions that people play online. Large companies like ESPN and Redbull have been savvy enough to start sponsoring teams worldwide, as they have realised the growth potential of eSports.
