Although we do know that several new heroes are planned to be released, Blizzard remain quite mysterious about their identity. We will update this article as soon as we get more information on the subject.
The next patch of Battlegrounds should hit live between March 16 and 20.
Goodbye Tirion, hello Queen Wagtoggle
That's the only solid piece of information that we can reveal to you: Tirion Fordring is leaving the Battlegrounds, while Queen Wagtoggle is back! It is expected that her hero power has been changed but we don't know how yet.
Battlegrounds probably launched before it really had that final level of polish. I think it still has the beta tag on it for a reason. So we'd love to add some progression systems, love to add some goals for different players to hit. There’s just a bunch of features that we want to do first, like for instance getting 8 player lobbies, so you can queue up with your friends, but also for organizers outside of Blizzard to also make their own tournaments and broadcast those for people to watch. So that’s really the first feature. We’d love to do more, but that’s going to take some time.
A lot of new things are heading to Battlegrounds! How do you feel about these changes? Feel free to drop your opinion in the comment section below!
