I would appear to have been sent a beta code if anyone wants it.

Don't know how that happened but its yours if you want it.

Polygon review.

The last few paragraphs pretty much sum up my issues with the game right now.

37 things I am uninterested in playing.

If you like MOBAs fine, but fuckdamn I find them tedious!

At least HotS is quicker, none of this monotonous shopping bullshit.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

It's not monotonous. The items in DOTA and the like add depth to the game as it increases the amount of builds you can make with a hero and a pickup of a specific item can drastically effect the course of a match. I can understand people not liking the way it complicates the game, but it isn't monotonous.

Eurogamer review.

It's strange that the review doesn't touch on any of the flaws of the game. I suppose that is the Blizzard effect.

The lack of a shop and the whole thing feeling like a meatgrinder is what makes HotS so boring for me. Might as well have two Galcon planets and drag their fleets together to see who wins, its about the same satisfaction. It would be a great tablet moba and would compare decently to Fates Forever and that other big one on there that I forget the name of. Similar graphics too.

It's so heavily dependent on getting a good team together for it to be fun, far moreso than any other moba I've played. It's difficult to carry when you've got useless goons on your team due to how the XP system works, but get some good trait synergy going over voice chat and the team fight centred nature of the gameplay is a huge blast. It's fast paced and they've removed the slow grind and dull mechanics like last hitting in lane for 10 minutes in favour of constantly contesting map objectives, which is the main thing I enjoy about it.

Leoric is being added to the game.




Watching them put heroes into this game has made me realise that some of Blizzards characters are pretty similar.
