Heroes of the Storm

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to get AJSA official game support for Heroes of the Storm.

 

Don't just disregard this new game because its "another MOBA" because it's a lot more different than you think.

Heroes of the Storm is a MOBA or Dota style game from Blizzard. It is, however, unlike most MOBAs like League of Legends or Dota 2 in that there are no individual hero levels, no cs (creep score) or gold and items. The game has an overall team level earned by getting xp (experience points) across the map and has individual hero talents to change how your hero plays. Heroes of the Storm also has different maps with different map objectives (click here to see the different battlegrounds) that are crucial to succeed in Heroes of the Storm.

 

I created another post about creating a community for this game but I wanted to get everyone's attention to get official game support to enlarge the community so that we can make a team for upcoming tournaments. That post can be found here.

 

Pros:

-Easy to play

Easy to learn basics of the game for newcomers into the community and enough so that they can participate in events that will be held.

 

-Up and coming e-Sports scene

The Heroes of the Storm e-Sports scene is just beginning and has events being shown on ESPN as well as Twitch.

 

-Skins and Mounts

Heroes has a mounts system to help move around the map faster and these can be customized with different variations. Also, SKINS!

Each Heroes skins and mounts have different color variations that are earned when you level up the hero.

 

-Talents/No Items

Unlike League of Legends, this game uses a Talent system which allows for different heroes to be played in many different ways. These are unlocked as your team level increases throughout the game. This also leads to each hero having two different Heroic abilities (or Ultimates) to chose from. This makes the game easier to learn and adds a lot of variety to each hero.

 

-No Last Hitting/Team XP

No last hitting adds helps make the game easier for new players. Experience Points are not only gained by one player but are joined together for a Team level. This XP is earned by heroes or a hero by being in a lane with minions.

 

-Different Battlegrounds

Heroes has many different Battlegrounds that have special map objectives which help your team to push down enemy structures. These different maps also have an affect on what heroes are picked.

 

-Hero "Classes"

Heroes of the Storm has four different types of heroes: Warriors (the tank), Assassins (the main damage dealers), Supports (the main healers) and Specialists (the siege focused heroes). This creates a different mix of classes which brings a lot of variety to the game and creates many possible team compositions.

 

Cons:

-Semi-region locked:

Heroes of the storm is semi-region locked in that you are able to change to a different region (current regions are NA and EU)

 

-Solo Que isn't the greatest

Objective based and team focused game play makes Solo Que a hard and frustrating task sometimes, but hey! more reasons to grow our community!

 

-Limited to Heroes talents for customization in game play

Unlike in games like League of Legends, Heroes doesn't have any skill customization options like Runes or Masteries and only have Hero talents to customize their gameplay.

 

Current Active Players (that I know of on NA):

-ClassyBadger (Me)

-Gobu

-JTF

-Finndahuman

-Near

-CJVX10A

-Reavz

-OrcaLoca

 

Possible Events:

-Custom Matches

-Training

-Team Ranked play

-Tournaments

-Clan vs Clan

I play this, hope to be able to play with you guys sometimes. What's nice about this game is that other than the heroic skill (for LoL players this is your R skill and for dota 2 players this is your ultimate) everything is already in your arsenal from the beginning. Meaning you're free to use all your toys from the get go so early game isn't boring at all.

Haven't played much yet, but it seems interesting enough. So long as Blizzard keeps picking on WoW players for their income enough to keep this one free, i'd enjoy it.

One complain I have about this is that you'll never know what map you will get and what heroes you will be teamed up with in Quick Match. There was this one match where I got teammed up with an Illidan, a Valla, a Nova and a Zeratul as Kael Thas while the enemies had an Arthas, Stitches, Nova, Tyrande, Azmodan. While in other MOBAs you can adjust (though most will not), in here it's a surprise at the start.

Theclassybadger and I have talked and he will be the leader for the NA hots group. If you guys want to help out or just play the game, reach out to him for all info related to hots.

As for the EU and/or Asian crowd(s), I need someone to step up and lead those two regions (someone different for each) if you guys want events for those regions. At this time NA is the only region we will be playing on until someone steps up for either of the other regions.

I will leave this post open for a few more days to field any questions, let you guys post more info, or for people to recommend or volunteer for leadership of one of the other regions. I will then lock and move this thread to completed.
