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

And overhauled stealth

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.

Find the full 2018 update details here. Also on the horizon? Hanzo and Alexstrasza.
