Cooperative Mode was one of the gameplay modes in the Heroes of the Storm closed beta. It was removed from the closed beta in the May 12, 2015 patch and replaced by the Versus A.I. Mode. Originally, with the completion of a Cooperative Mode session, Quick Match was unlocked, but that requirement was removed in a later patch.
Here, a player (and if desired, friends) could play against AI-controlled opponents. If no-one is on a friends list, the player is paired with other human players using the game's matchmaker. Along development, the AI difficulty was designed to match the players' skill. The players were chosen prior to entering the matchmaking service. After playing the game, other players could be invited to join a party list.
