Well, there’s not much to tell about this. I guess, like everyone knows World of Warcraft.
So just a few Screenshots here.
Not too rare, this Pegasus was a reward (ty Blizzard u.u) for playing Hearthstone at its release.
The lady on it is my Worgen, low level, nothing special. But I like her hat..! >_<
Now here comes the real stuff; a nocturnal ride through the beautiful landscape of Draenor ❤
And this is my masterpiece *-*! I hate myself for not turning off the interface btw.. but else.. love it!
Last foto is of my level 2 Garnison. Awesome feature, they really got the max out of an housing system..!
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!
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.
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.
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! :]
