Heroes Of The Storm – Futuristic Beta Gameplay

Some days ago I was happy to see the beta for me available, so I didn’t hesitate to give it a try!

First notable are the graphics. They are professional good, we wouldn’t expect anything else from Blizzard anyway, as they’ve always provided top graphics & sounds while keeping a good game performance. So again, good job on that!

And it is the WoW’s Paladin Uther who is first talking to us, while we play Starcraft’s Raynor!

Heroes of the Storm Tutorial 1

Quite everything is well explained during the tutorial, entertaining dialogues included.

Overall this new moba game gives me a quite futuristic impression, I’m not sure if I like that, but that’s a matter of personal taste.

Heroes of the Storm Gameplay 1

The gameplay is very different to what I’ve been used in League of Legends.
Yet after my first coop game I’ve noticed a “new” stat about map mechanics, which seem quite essential for the victory, meaning you need to accomplish certain tasks to get (temporary) advantages.
Another difference, in Heroes of the Storm you level up as a team. If top just pushed a minion wave, the whole team gets the exp.
Then the fact you don’t buy items here; in other words, you only return to base for healing (if returning at all). At least I can’t see any sense in returning for now, except for that. However, there are sometimes kind of healing charms droped in the lane AND there is a healing fountain you can use, unless it’s empty.

Heroes of the Storm Victory

My first coop game only lasted about 11 minutes, which is A WAY shorter than in LoL, where you may calculate 20-25 minutes for a game vs bots.

Heroes of the Storm sure has some aspects which make it worth to play. I can’t really say yet if I am going to stick with it tho, as also League of Legends keeps showing some great and interesting improvements and maybe I am just used to that game and like it too much, to go that much into another moba. However, every now and then it seems to be a nice pastime! :]

Assassin In ELO Hell !


Yep, after playing my “placements” in Sanctuary RPG I’ve entered the “Copper” League.. (really?! copper..?) and this, although I’ve won all of the 5 placement games pfff.. But I guess “you are where you belong to” ~.~

1635 ELO, that’s about the same amount I got in LoL, coincidence? I don’t think so!

Well, anyway, here my LvL 30 Assassin in Softcore Modus, she didn’t die anyway so far, but well..!
At least once I want to pass the game, then I will go back to classic mode and play it roguelike, ok.

This has been the 3. class I tried in this game – after Ranger and Barbarian (RIP..)

The Barbarian has been even quite easy with his enormous amount of health.
The Assassin however, is alot of fun. TONS OF DAMAGE, self-healing (HP+MP), ridiculous dodging and crits for even more damage!
