looks really nice, hope i can get into Beta!
I am sorry if someone already mentioned this but...They also showed a pictured of The Butcher and the Skeleton King form Diablo. Also on the Heroes video at the end if you look closely you can find what appears to be Rexxar and Zul'Jin maybe. Rexxar being in the top center and Zul'Jin next to the Butcher, behind Azmodan on the top right. The Skeleton King also appears in the group shot next to the Witch Doctor and Chen.
I WANT KAEL!
This game is looking like it is coming together nicely. I enjoyed the Blizzcon tournament. Grats to Cloud9!
I really hope i make it to the beta.
i would like to play that new map!
Soo...Jaina is basically Crystal Maiden made not useless.Thrall is basically Disruptor made cooler.Lost Vikings sound like Tusk but.. ya know.. three of em.
My only issue right now with Thrall In HotS is that how come he don't use a standard ranged attack. He does it is Warcraft 3.This also points out to other heros too who can do both melee and ranged attacks and not just ranged spells and melee spells. For example Thrall can hit enemies with Doomhammer but can also caste bolts of lightning like in Warcraft 3, or like the Witch Doctor from Diablo 3 who can stab with knife and do spell bolts.
I wish they had the other maps as well at BlizzCon, got really boring playing Sky Temple over and over.
This game is going to be epic*cough... Give me beta access!
Not sure how I feel about Jaina's pants. They look kinda funny.On another note, the idea of grouping "leavers" together sounds pretty good, but I'll be interested to see how well it works out in practice. Hopefully the threshold to flag an account will be forgiving enough that if you have to take off early a couple times it won't boot you over to it right away. (Does the "grace period" mean you have to return to the game within a certain time limit? Or is it more of a "three strikes" kind of policy for disconnecting/leaving?)
Heroes of the Storm: One of the worst League of Legends rip-off's.
Blizz is doing so much atm with all their games. And everything seems to be totally amazing. Can't wait for the new heroes :3
The game is casual fun, but never could play it hardcore :)
Store is far too pricey
I was hoping they would have made more progress by now. Well, at least the beta begins soon.
Lost Vikings - very cool! More fun!
Believe me it is nothing like league of legends the concept is the same destroy the core and the end but in everything else is completely different that's why I love it and it is now my favorite game. Why is it different though and what makes it apart from other moba clones? First and most important there is no gold and items, only xp that you contribute generally to your team so all your teamates are the same level, that means you can't get fed or moan for ks like in most mobas do, nor there is one simply guy that plays a broken hero and can carry a useless team, in hots either you go for objectives and play as a team or you lose. That brings me to the second reason, there are meaningful objectives that it is quite important to go for cause these objectives really control the flow of the battle and spawn quite frequently so there aren't long-boring laning phases, it is mostly roam-brawl-go for objective, you can win without the objectives with good communication and lane pushing but it is a bit hard. Thirdly each hero can be leveled up to lvl 10 and if you lvl him enough you can get skin recolors for free! No more charging simple recolors for 5-10 euros and additionally if you get your hero max lvl you can unlock a master skin only for in-game currency not real money, so actually you can get a free skin and additionally you can try ANY hero and ANY skin for free anytime in a small private map so you don't have to wait for rotations or search the internet how a skin looks in game. Last but not least, it is not a perfect solution but still way better than the other mobas, when you have an afk he gets replaced by a bot, if your team is going pretty well and one leaves, it is more possible to win with the bot than having this one person being afk at base all game long. Sorry for tldr text but since i really love this game and I can see why it is so much superior than the other mobas I just couldn't hold myself and explain why. If you want a really difficult moba that punishes you though you will not like hots, it is not punishing you like hell for being bad like in dota nor you can deny creeps etc. Hots is a fun, fast paced brawler game with average match times of 20 minutes, that promotes teamwork and objective focus gameplay and with really nice graphics and funny physics. As for all those that say it is another lol clone, except from reading my reasons above why it is not like lol, remember that lol copy-pasted the exact same concept of moba gameplay from dota that was created years ago as a mod for warcraft 3, a blizzard game and lol keeps using the same generic map for years while hots will have at least 6 different maps on release with dynamic objectives while lol 4 years now has just 4 maps and just adding ridiculously simple game modes on the same maps over and over again.
Leavers idea is what other MOBA should use too. Good ol' "hellban". I'm tired of devs of other games trying to figure solution for this simple problem for YEARS.
Dem Vikings doe.....oooweee.
