Season 1 Has Begun!
A new year, new maps and a new season has begun for StarCraft II Heart of the Swarm. Time to get out of Gold!
Season 1 of the 2015 StarCraft II ladder has arrived as bonus pools and standings have been reset and the final milestones from 2014 have been awarded. You can take a look at your 2014 Season 4 results by visiting the Leagues and Ladders section of your StarCraft II character profile.Furthermore, Season 1 has several new Blizzard and community-made maps! Take just a moment to get familiar with all of the new maps by checking them out before you hit that “Find Match” button in the game.
As always, the hidden skill ratings used for matchmaking and league placement carry over from one season to the next, so if you were already placed in a league back in 2014, you’ll only need to play one placement match to kick off the new season.
Additionally, a free character name change has been aplied to all accounts that did not have one available now. Remember, character name changes do not stack (you can only have one free name change at a time).
We wish the best of luck to all of you heading in to the first season of 2015 ladder play and hope you have a blast on the new maps.
