BlizzCon 2015 - Heroes of the Storm Battlegrounds Panel
2015/11/07 at 6:01 PM
There are a couple of core goals for battlegrounds in Heroes of the Storm. A battleground must eventually end and create conflict.
On battlegrounds, they want to make sure that there are objectives to fight over and if you succeed, you get a good reward.
