Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard's upcoming all-star MOBA, is coming to the final phase of its technical alpha, and it means soon players will be starting from scratch.

The alpha currently allows players to make purchases using real money, and for those who did take advantage of the option, their money will be refunded to their accounts following the reset. This means they will be able to easily repurchase items when the shop comes back online.

The shop is going offline starting tomorrow, but during the downtime, all of the game's 29 heroes will be available for players to use for free.

Blizzard is planning, and hoping, that this will be the final wipe as the game moves forward towards beta and release, but it makes no concrete promises that a future wipe will not be necessary.
