Heroes of the Storm - Lost Vikings Patch Overview

A short overview, breakdown of the Lost Vikings patch in Heroes of the Storm.

In a few words:
  • New Hero: The Lost Vikings, (Olaf, Baleog, and Erik)
  • In-game Communication: It is now possible to view recent in-game chat messages by opening the chat box to type a new message
  • A new Quest Log button has been added to the lower-right portion of the bottom navigation bar, next to the Friends List button
  • Player Profile - a lot of updates
  • The tracking and penalties for leaving in-progress Quick Match and Hero League games before they are finished have been changed:
Leaving multiple Hero League or Quick Match games without reconnecting will now flag the player to receive the following penalties:
-The flagged player will be disallowed from queuing for Hero League games until a Quick Match game is played to completion.
-Leaving additional games early will cause the number of Quick Match games required to increase.
-When a player who is flagged for leaving games early joins a party, the entire party will also become subject to these penalties.
-Leaving a Hero League game during Draft Mode will now only penalize and flag the player who left the draft, and will no longer penalize the rest of that player’s party members.
In addition, the flagged player will still lose a significant number of Ranked Points upon leaving Draft Mode.

We got many nerfs and buffs, you can find the full patch notes here :
