Heroes of the Storm News Banner

In the heat of battle during an intense match within the Nexus, emotions fly and people say things they may regret. But people who continue to be disrespectful towards players, they become silenced within the game and cannot socialize with the rest of us. In a recent case, a player took his hatred and rants to the next level, and because of this, he could face up to 5 YEARS of prison time if convicted. So remember folks, everything to say in game chats can and will be used against you in a court of law, so please be respectful, or pay for your crime. To hear more about this story, check out this article!
