Heroes of the Storm - Arena Mode (BlizzCon 2015)

Arena Mode has been announced at BlizzCon 2015 and while we do not have a definitive launch date for this new mode in Heroes of the Storm, we do know most of the details regarding how The Arena will play-out
There are a few bullet-points :
The arena is random from the entire hero pool regardless if you own a hero or not.
You will get a choice from 3 heroes all from a single class
The arena is best two out of three with each Battleground being slightly different.
The two mediums presented where Garden Arena and Temple Arena, each with 3 variants.
All players start at lvl 10, acquire no XP and can only pick the Heroic Ability.
There is a chance of 10x mode which will assign the same HotS hero to both teams | all players.
Some heroes where removed from 10x mode so the matches don't drag-out to long or they just don't work with the Arena Concept.
A team can not have more then 2 warriors and more then 2 supports.
