Blizzard has given up. It will stop trying to improve or grow the game. As soon as the game's maintenance cost more than its income, it will be shut down.
People are not going to spend money on a game that can be shut down at a moment's notice. If income was bad before, it will only get worse.
Similarly, people are not going to invest time to practice and improve on a game that can be shut down at a moment's notice. If the player population was not high enough before, it will only get worse. That means worse match making and longer queue time.
The spiral of death has begun. There is nothing we can do.
The game, already on life support, is going to make far less money now. This is going to cause even more development cuts. That is going to cut into an already dwindling player base, which is going to further increase queue times and foster even more poor matchmaking. That is going to continue this spiral. We have all the relevant information now. The game is losing budget, it's losing developers, and now has no pro scene, absolutely (and quite literally) no means or opportunity for growth.
Heroes of the Storm is, indeed, a dying game. By this time next year we may be lamenting its loss just as we did with Gigantic, Paragons, or anything like that. Arguing that it's somehow okay, or that it's really not dying, guys, honest, for sure, why would they lie to us, is naievete that is only going to give people false hope. Don't encourage people to spend money on this, or invest more of their gaming lives than they already have. The core's at 1%. One more inevitable hit and it's done.
