Heroes of the Storm open beta

Post by Evol Recovery on Sun May 17, 2015 8:50 am

Heroes opens up to the public for open beta on Tuesday (5/19) so come check it out. I have been playing it for probably 50+ hours and it is still lots of fun.
It is simpler to play the LoL or Dota but that isn't a bad thing. I am playing this almost exclusively as far as online multiplayer goes and am willing to help out anyone who wants to learn how to play.
I have played the other 2 mobas that matter and honestly this is my favorite. If you have ever enjoyed a RTS please check this game out. Blizzard has once again, in my opinion, taken a type of game and made it better. I'm sorry but league of legends and Dota are boring compared to this game.

I've played it a moderate amount with some friends.

If you've never played a moba, it's definitely an easy one to start on.
That being said, it's boring as hell if you play real MOBAs. I play a lot of league, have played some dota, here's my comparison:
(Keep in mind, I'm just listing differences. Not necessarily good or bad things)

HoTS:
Objective oriented. Pretty much constant fighting
Very simple leveling/ability selection
MORE maps!
No Items, masteries, runes, etc. All taken care of from in game level ups.
No Last Hitting
Team EXP as opposed to individual EXP
Smaller skill curve
Less responsive movement
Higher health to damage ratio (early on especially)

LoL:
Most of these are obviously the opposite of above
MUCH deeper strategy
Last Hitting
Individual EXP/Gold earned
Pre-game masteries and runes
Diverse item tree
Broader range of playstyles available
Much higher skill curve
Less maps

Summary:
HoTS is fun if you want to run around and kill some stuff. They have cool objectives, multiple maps, and all your favorite heroes from blizzard universe.
However, I my general sentiment is as follows:
LoL is to Baseball as HoTS is to T-Ball
They're both fun, they're both similar, but one is a much more fully developed game with real strategy behind it.

Played tutorial and then one game, went 20-0 and did twice the dmg of my team combined. I played as the little inventor dude with the turrets and sh1t.

Went straight back to league right after as the mechanics of HOTS just fell sloppy as sh1t and in no way rewarding.

I keep reading HOTS as Heart of the Swarm and think "Of course it's different than League of Legends!". What was Blizzard thinking? Razz
