Heroes of the Storm, which I reviewed today, is getting an adjustment to its matchmaking to make things more even.
In the past players who queued for Quick Match were assigned a team essentially at random, but those days are no more. In an update on the Heroes of the Storm forums today, Community Manager Spyrian revealed that Blizzard has adjusted their matchmaking to even things out. The post itself details the problem.
We’ve created an additional rule for matchmaking in Quick Match that will take each player’s total number of Quick Match games played into account when creating teams. This rule has already been implemented, and we expect that you, your allies, and even your opponents, will now be matched more closely in terms of Quick Match experience.
So now players with hundreds of games under their belt won't be placed in teams next to people playing for the first time. If you haven't played Heroes of the Storm or read my review, this is a good thing.
In more Heroes of the Storm news, the next Hero to enter the Nexus is Leoric, the Skeleton King from the Diablo universe, and Blizzard dropped a Spotlight Trailer on us earlier in the week.
He looks like a pain in the butt to deal with. As we mentioned yesterday, pre-ordering Legacy of the Void will get earn you access to the next StarCraft Hero as well -- do you have any thoughts on who that hero might be?

Hopefully this means quicker match finding takes too long to find a match

Also the Starcraft 2 character will be a Warrior class confirmed in the pre-order bonus of SC2 LotV
Surely it would have to be a Protoss character...

290 posts and you are providing advice with authority?
Have an opinion for sure, but you have lived for fewer years than some people have played games in this forum. Also don't use yourself as an expert.
I also suggest not using the word penultimate unless you mean second to last >.< .
