Blizzard snuck in a huge update for Heroes of the Storm overnight, that sees the addition of an all-new playable character and a new battleground among much more.
and Tomb of the Spider Queen are the new character and battleground added, respectively, while Team League -- a kind of Guild/Clan setup that allows teams to compete in ranked team matches.
Grab four of your pals and start talking serious strategy, because the arrival of our next Closed Beta patch will introduce Team League to Heroes of the Storm! Team League is our latest mode of ranked matchmaking, and will allow you and your closest allies in the Nexus to create dedicated, persistent teams in order to compete for rank against opposing teams. Just as 1v1 is broadly considered the primary, and most competitive, way to experience StarCraft II, we believe that Team League will represent the pinnacle of Heroes competition.Click here to learn more about the new Team League mode
