This is Glamazonian Rage, with one badass take on Diablo’s badass Johanna.
All the playable classes of Diablo III have already got a Heroes of the Storm version, except the Wizard. But those days are over. The Wizard, called Li-Ming, is the next hero joining the ever-growing roster of Heroes of the Storm.
Heroes of the Storm’s latest playable character might be a wolf, but only sometimes.Greymane, Lord of the Worgen can swap between a ranged human assassin and a melee werewolf, with abilities that take advantage of his dual nature. Also, he would like a keg of beer.
There’s been a running joke among Heroes of the Storm players about what happened to the snazzy-looking Vulture mount. Blizzard announced it in September, but never released it. Did it disappear? We wondered. Was it incurably bugged? Today Blizzard confirmed the mount does still exist, but getting it will cost you.
Nova’s free week in Heroes of the Storm has come to an end! That means we can finally say goodbye to embarrassing deaths like this one. Ok: not really.
The StarCraft assassin Nova is free to play for everyone in Heroes of the Storm this week. Some call the prospect of playing every HOTS match against a perma-stealthed long-range sniper assassin “annoying.” I call it open season.
Some cosplay photographers like to go nuts in photoshop, moving beyond simple image correction and into the realms of stuff like fake fireballs and lens flare. Me, I like things the old-fashioned way.
Blizzard added its latest battleground into its rad new MOBA Heroes of the Storm this week, and boy is this map a weird one. Called “Towers of Doom,” it takes some of the most sacred principles of the genre and either throws them out the window or distorts them beyond recognition. It’s a bold experiment, but is it fun?
There’s a great sale going on in Heroes of the Storm right now that takes 50% off everything in the game—provided you spend real money on it. There’s also a new 360-day stimpack available, which could be a great thing to buy if you know you’re gonna be playing a lot of HOTS. The sale lasts until December 8th.
Today Blizzard released an overview video for Heroes of the Storm’s new map “Towers of Doom,” which, in a unique twist on the standard MOBA formula, doesn’t actually allow players to directly attack the enemy’s core. It sounds a tad complicated, so I recommend watching before you queue up for a match.
Ever since they changed Heroes of the Storm’s name from Blizzard All-Stars and, even more regrettably, Blizzard Dota, Blizzard has insisted on calling its excellent new MOBA a “hero brawler” and therefore not calling it a MOBA. It was a silly choice when Blizzard first made it. Now, it’s become a damaging one.
“Backdooring” is a common strategy in Heroes of the Storm and other similar MOBAs by which one or more players try to sneak past the enemy team and attack their base before they have a chance to respond. It can be an ingenious way to save a game at the last possible minute. Key word: CAN be.
Why can’t Johanna be killed? How can Illidan be blinded? Why can’t Raynor and Kerrigan just be happy? All of these questions and more arise from Carbot’s latest Heroes of the Storm short.
Last week, Blizzard filed a lawsuit against the team behind a series of bots called “Buddy,” which allow users to cheat at games such as Heroes of the Storm, Diablo III and World of Warcraft. This week, the creators of those bots are hitting back at Blizzard, claiming the company has stolen their code. But Blizzard…
Heroes of the Storm has been going through a lot of changes lately, some small, some the size of a gigantic two-headed ogre. There’s one change that’s disturbed me more and more the more I think about it. They added KDA ratios into the game. Oh god, the KDA ratio!
Playing as Cho’Gall in Heroes of the Storm is one of the most entertaining things I’ve experienced in a MOBA. It’s also one of the clumsiest things I’ve ever done in any video game. I suppose when you and another teammate are simultaneously playing as single hero, clumsiness is the point.
At Blizzcon, the Heroes of the Storm development team announced a new character for the MOBA that would be controlled by two people playing him at the same exact time. It sounded crazy. Tonight I’m going to see if it is indeed crazy, and if so, just how crazy it is.
Here’s the Heroes of the Storm spotlight for Cho’Gall, the crazy-sounding new character that’s controlled by two people at the same time. Blizzard said they expect him to go live in HOTS sometime this week. My colleague Nathan Grayson and I are sure to start butting heads (literally!) once that happens.
...until it actually happens. And then you feel like a fool.
Overwatch is, at the very least, a MOBA-like game. This means that it has some features that are similar to the ones in Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, and Dota 2. Except they’re a lot better in Overwatch.
