Hello and welcome from the Heroes Lounge team. So you have found yourself playing and enjoying Heroes of the Storm. You were also wondering how to take the enjoyment of the game to the next level? Well look no further, you have come to the right place.
The following guide will show you the step by step process of how to join the biggest HotS amateur gaming community worldwide, whether you’re one of the North American subspecies of sloth or a European sloth looking to experience HotS the way it was meant to be played.
It doesn't matter whether you’re a lone sloth looking for a team, a small group or an entire family of 5 or more sloths, we have an option for you to play in a cooperative environment in our competitive league regardless.
There are several ways to participate in Heroes Lounge, which we will guide you through in the following:
You have already successfully completed the first step by visitingheroeslounge.gg and finding this guide!
To participate in a Heroes Lounge season you will need a couple of things to make it possible for us to give you a fair and balanced environment to play in.
First up, you need your battle.net ID. Additionally, as we use HotsLogs MMR for our balancing (aka rigging), you are required to have linked your battle.net account with HotsLogs and set your profile to public there.
Note: The battle.net ID MUST be your main account, smurfs or alternative accounts are not allowed for fairness reasons.
Additionally, you need a Discord account with which you can join our Discord server. This will help you get in contact with the community, find a team, participate in the league and spam endless sloth memes in one of our many Discord channels.
Note: Please be aware that the Discord tag is case sensitive! If your account doesn't properly link to Discord, first check if that is exactly as it appears in Discord itself.
With those two things ready and lined up, you can now create an account on our website through the prominently placed sign-up button.
In order to register, you need the aforementioned accounts as well as a valid email address and a password. Make sure you have access to the email account, as you will need to confirm your address before you will be able to log in to your account. After a short welcome message and the aforementioned email verification, you’ll be good to go.
The first thing you’ll see is your account settings. On the ‘General’ tab, you can change your username, password, and email address as well as sign up for the Heroes Lounge newsletter. You're safe to do so, the newsletter will only be used to inform you of important events like a new season starting or similar.
