Every so often after playing a game, the post-game screen suggests I just reached Player Level 2, receiving the corresponding 1000 gold reward. However, I am actually level 25. A similar thing is going on for my hero: I get level 2 rewards even though my Diablo is level 4. Is this a bug? Or am I missing some kind of feature?

Here's a screenshot of such a post-game situation:

And here's a screenshot of my Player Progression right after that:

As you can see, I am still level 25, have not just levelled nor am I about to (or would I get any reward if I would). Strange thing is (and I'm not complaining): it seems I get to keep the gold.

And like I mentioned, same thing happens for my hero. That is, post-game tells me I reached level 2, but right afterward I can see on my profile that he's in fact level 4:

level 4 diablo

This happened to me on more than one occasion (about three or four times now, I think).

Is this a bug? Or am I missing something?

    I thinks this is a bug. This is a game in beta, right?. I saw once a similar level-advancing-circle, that showed that my level has been increased from 0 to 1 (or 2) when my real level was ~30. But I didn't received any rewards then AFAIR.

  • Pre released from a closed beta should point to the developer website to address all possible bug issues.

  • @klm123 Thanks for your confirmation. Would you consider putting it up as an answer, so I can accept it?

  • @Jeroen, thank you, but I don't think that is worth to be an answer, I'm not fully sure that I saw what I saw, I didn't pay too much attention to this, plus you describe a little bit different behaviour (you got rewards, I didn't).

  • I think you should submit a bug report and put the answer of developer as an answer to this question on stackexchange.

There is no documented change about this and since it makes no sense, yes, it is a bug.

Given the numerous posts in /r/heroesofthestorm complaining about how gold gaining was so slow during the alpha, I wouldn't be surprised if players keep their voices down about this bug to get back at Blizzard:)
