Training Mode mode is one of the gameplay modes in Heroes of the Storm, in which the player teams up either with AI-controlled teammates to play against AI-controlled opponents. Games played in training mode do not award Gold or progress in Daily Quests.

Each training mode match begins with a cinematic overview of the map, and during the match a voice-over from Uther will provide advice to the player.

The AI opponents in Training Mode are significantly easier than those in Versus AI Mode.


Versus AI mode was added late in the closed beta[1] in a reorganisation of game modes that removed Practice Mode and Cooperative Mode and replaced them with Training Mode and Versus AI Mode.
