I wonder if they're gonna change the limit on how many heros you can have at once in a standard multiplayer game. 4 heros per race, plus who knows how many of these new neutral heros.. that right there would get you at least 5 simultaneous heros.

I imagine they'll hard-limit it at three, or this game will turn into massive micro hero wars.
