Milker talks about the fact that the 2.0 update triggered cross-pollination between ideas and teams. He stated that this happens because they are all gamers and they feel happy about the fact that they added several fantastic games developed by Blizzard, like Overwatch and Hearthstone. Nevertheless, Heroes is a free-to-play game. Milker claims that a big part of the choices in Heroes 2.0 was made to assure themselves that gamers have access to their work irrespective of the fact that they pay or not for this game.
.Milker stated that he is excited that gamers will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds, having a taste of Hearthstone with a hybrid of card pack and a taste of Overwatch with the loot box. Game developers tried to develop something unique by combining the characteristics of two successful games. The producer claimed that, even if the game appears to be a puzzle which contains both Overwatch and Hearthstone pieces, the fact is that game developers wanted similar features to these games ever since they started working on the game.

The most important thing which helped developers was their intuition, trying to decide what they should leave out and what exactly was suitable for this genre. They have so much experience as players that they selected great features to form both Blizzard games and implemented some of them, while other remained just a thought.
The priority of Heroes of the Storm team is to do what feels right to offer gamers an extraordinary experience. They periodically introduce new features to the game, maintaining a balance between the elements from Overwatch and those from Hearthstone. Nevertheless, even if it happens to disrupt esports scenes, game developers still do what they think it is best for the game.
