Where do I even start ? This patch came in with a flurry of changes, including 5 full hero reworks for Gazlowe, Sylvanas, Tychus, Kael'thas and Illidan (these will be covered in the second part). For now let's dive into bans, the new hero and battleground, more customization controls, death recaps... and the list goes on and on. One of the most comprehensive HotS Patches we have ever gotten, but I feel a lot of clean-up will be needed before the game is "balanced". Clearly we are on the right track and S1 cannot be to far off!
