...until it actually happens. And then you feel like a fool. »
A source of frustration for Heroes of the Storm players since the first good players started pulling away from the Yannicks, the game’s matchmaking system is getting a major overhaul in the coming weeks that should result in much happier rounds. »
The Protoss have always been the coolest race in StarCraft. Proud but adaptable, aggressive yet agile, the ornate alien species embodies what’s great about the real-time strategy and MOBA games they inhabit. This week has been exciting in Heroes of the Storm thanks to the introduction of their fearless leader Artanis. »
The Protoss warrior Artanis is now live in Heroes of the Storm, and he’s a lot of fun! I’ll have more detailed impressions on the new StarCraft hero by tomorrow. Blizzard still hasn’t said who/what they’re going to add to HOTS after Artanis, which is uncharacteristic given the game’s fast-paced release schedule. »
I’ve played 999 games of Heroes of the Storm. Staying true to MOBA tradition, I asked the HOTS developers if they would play my 1,000th game with me, and they said yes! We will live stream the festivities next week on Thursday, October 8th, beginning at 4:00 pm EDT. So clear your schedules, because this’ll be fun. »
Fresh off Heroes of the Storm’s Americas Championship games that went down this past weekend, Blizzard teased out some fresh
content coming into the MOBA. Seems to me like the developer has really stepped up its game for alternate character skins lately. »
Whether it’s a hidden corner of a StarCraft II campaign map or something mentioned in a WoW quest, Blizzard always finds the weirdest ways to hide easter eggs in their games. This time it’s a Diablo III-themed one in Heroes of the Storm. »
Heroes of the Storm just put out a spotlight for the upcoming Warcraft character
Rexxar. I love the idea of adding a beastmaster—I mean, there’s already one in Dota 2. Allowing you to manage a bunch of different animals seems like a logical next step from all the summoning-heavy specialists already in HOTS. »
Hey Heroes of the Storm Abathur players, I need to ASKathur you a question. Sorry. I want to put together a guide for this strange, wonderful hero since he’s finally on free week (and because he’s notoriously difficult to master). Please let me know if you have any gameplay tips or build strategies to suggest. Thanks! »
Blizzard revealed a bunch of exciting new stuff coming to its MOBA Heroes of the Storm today at Gamescom. In addition to the previously teased Monk hero from Diablo III, they’re also adding a hero from Warcraft, and another one from StarCraft. AND another Diablo-themed map. Woo content!!!!
Even if they’re a level behind, you might think that two of the best characters in Heroes of the Storm could take out the notoriously easy-to-kill frog thing Murky. Think again. »
I’d managed to resist the allure of Funco’s Mystery Minis series up until I saw boxes with the Heroes of the Storm logo on them this weekend at Momocon. Curse you, tiny Queen of Blades. »
Heroes of the Storm is finally coming out at the beginning of June. I’ve been playing Blizzard’s up-and-coming MOBA pretty much nonstop for the past few weeks, and have developed a lot of feelings about the game during its extended beta as a result. Let’s start with the positive ones. »
Whether or not having a surrender option in a MOBA is a good thing is an open debate, largely because the two biggest games in the genre disagree. League of Legends lets you surrender after 20 minutes. Dota 2 has no such option. Heroes of the Storm has sided with team Dota, and that’s not good.
