Heroes of the Storm Technical Alpa – Patch

Blizzard Entertainment released a new Heroes of the Storm Technical Alpha patch today to change the weekly Free-to-Play Hero Rotation. It’s unknown at the moment if any bug fixes were applied. The patch was approximately over 40MB.

Update: Patch Notes were finally revealed. A few minor bug fixes were applied during the refreshing of the Weekly Hero Rotation.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue which allowed the Promote talent to be used on unintended minions.

User Interface

  • Fixed an issue that could occasionally cause a player’s gold total to revert to a previous value, despite earning additional gold.


We’re currently in the process of updating the free-to-play hero rotation with a set of six fresh heroes, who will stand ready to start smashing towers at a moment’s notice once Heroes is back online. We’ll bring in a new set of free-to-play heroes every Tuesday from here on out. Here are your free heroes for this week:

Week of Tuesday, Mar. 18, 2014:

  • Arthas
  • E.T.C.
  • Muradin
  • Tassadar
  • Witch Doctor
  • Zeratul

(If you’re playing on a brand new account, you’ll start with five free hero slots until you reach Level 7 with the experience and progression system. At that point, you’ll unlock a sixth free-to-play hero slot.)

This post will be updated each week during the Tech Alpha whenever we refresh the free hero rotation, and you can expect the next set of free heroes on Tuesday, March 25. Make sure to do some brawling with this week’s roster before they rotate out of the pool!

If you’d like to see hero rotations from previous weeks, we’ll be posting them as replies to this thread.
