i got beta key few months ago and to be honest i deleted this game after a week, this game nothing close to anything u can call fresh or interesting, WoW Battlegrounds on advanced sc2 engine? wtf, they want money for that? ffs i won't play it even for free, game industry nowadays needs "fresh ideas" this whole game looks like a dead end to me, as DOTA and LOL
blizzard got stuck about ideas a long time ago, i think DOTA was created becuz of it, and nowadays nothing changes, as for me, I DONT WANT NEW ENGINES, I WANT NEW GAMES, i won't pay a cent for games like HeroesoftheStorm, not anymore
It will be so cool and wonderful if the next rock the cabinet will be as winner get its own game fully back by Blizz and supported by the company and of course.
Now that the next one will be about W3 I dont think is fair to leave SC2 games out as not all of us know about W3 and dont have the time to get in to.
Doing a MOBA style like DOTA is not my style of gaming but ohhh well blizz dosent ask before making stuff up. Im sure it has its fan base and I could be one of them if only Heroes of the Storm came with the editor. But we know better then to hope.
Comparing Heroes and the Storm and LoL/Dota 2/HoN is like comparing football to rugby. They might use a loosely similar concept, but the games themselves are very, very different. I personally think HoTS is much, much more entertaining than LoL (which I play quite often), just because of the casual atmosphere.
The trouble Blizzard is going to have is getting past the "just another moba" attitude that lots of people are giving the game, because in reality, it isn't.
