Heroes of the Storm Technical Alpha – International Invitations Rolling Out Soon

The Heroes of the Storm team is planning to move to the next phase of Technical Alpha.

This includes extending invitations to players outside of the United States. The plan is to invite players from Canada, Europe, Latin America, South East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

The catch is you must use the English client as the localization is still in development.

The in-game store will be active for those players.

Fully localized (translated) clients will be released in the coming months, and after those are released, the plan is to include Taiwan, Korea, and China — and later, all remaining languages.

Blizzard also points out there might be more account wipes in the future, so take that in mind. Account wipes means starting from zero. Starting the quests and achievements from scratch, and losing all characters and skins. However, any real-money spent will be restored into your Battle.net Balance credit.
