In the time since we brought the Technical Alpha back online, we’ve been continuing to add exciting new content to the Nexus and invite new players, and will be doing so in the weeks and months to come. But in addition to our current waves of invites, we also have two new ways that you can win access to Heroes of the Storm for yourself, or you can even bring your friends to the brawl!
If you’re not currently in the Technical Alpha for Heroes of the Storm, we wanted to offer you an additional opportunity to join the mayhem in the Nexus! All you have to do is head over to our Facebook page and fill out the form in the ‘Bring Your Friends to the Brawl’ app to submit your Battle.net email address. 4,000 lucky players will be chosen at random to test Heroes of the Storm.
But that’s not the only way we’re helping to bring even more players into the Nexus! Have you ever dreamt of fighting side by side in the Nexus with your closest friends? Well now’s your chance, because all existingHeroes Technical Alpha players will have a shot at bringing their friends to the brawl!
If you have Tech Alpha access and are up to the challenge, all you’ll need to do is to reach Player Level 20 in Heroes of the Storm between Tuesday, October 7 and Tuesday, November 18, 2014. Upon doing so, you’ll be automatically entered into a random drawing, in which thousands of lucky players will be selected to invite all of their Battle Tag and Real ID friends to join them in Technical Alpha testing! While we’re announcing this promotion today, we wanted to make sure to include the dedicated players who have already been playing since last week’s patch, which included our final planned account wipe.
If you don’t currently have access to Heroes of the Storm but have a friend that does, this is the perfect opportunity to encourage them to funnel their passion for Heroes and level up so that you can have an evenbetter chance of joining them and fighting by their side in the near future!
This thrilling promotion will offer new and existing players ways to join us in testing Heroes of the Storm. Having friends able to play together will also help us test and refine our upcoming social features and modes.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in the Nexus! So play hard, play fair and get that Player Level 20 milestone, or cheer on your nearest friend. If you have any further questions, check out the FAQ below.
What can I do if I don’t have Tech Alpha testing access?
As mentioned above, you can go to the official Heroes of the Storm Facebook page and enter via the ‘Bring Your Friends to the Brawl’ app for your chance to win access to the Technical Alpha. If you have Battle Tag and Real ID friends that are currently in the Technical Alpha, you can also encourage them to reach Player Level 20 in Heroes of the Storm between Tuesday, October 7 and Tuesday, November 18, 2014 so that you’ll have an additional chance to join them in the Technical Alpha.
If I’m not currently in the Technical Alpha, should I sign up for this promotion, or opt-in to test Heroes from the Heroes of the Storm website?
Both! Our main source of inviting players to test Heroes of the Storm is still from those people you have signed up at heroesofthestorm.com, so to maximize your chance of getting in, we strongly encourage you to sign up there and also participate in this promotion via the ‘Bring Your Friends to the Brawl’ app to increase your chances of getting access to the Technical Alpha.

If selected, you will be notified by email and will gain access to the game on or after November 15, 2014.
