Alright, considering I got this Forum created I might as well bring this to everyone's attention. Regardless of what my opinion about this game will be I have NO DOUBTS this will be a controversial one amongst the community.

Arguably one of the most successful gaming franchises of the last decade (and more) and the original base for creating the now acclaimed DOTA series, Blizzard have officially announced their version of the game.

Heroes of the Storm







This has just been announced alongside Blizzcon schedule being released to the public.

For those of you big into Blizzard games this should be a wrench among the spanners.

In order to avoid a sh*tstorm of negativity (and positivity) I will refrain from posting my opinion in this post.

[Will try and keep this as updated as I can - DISCUSS]

I like blizzard games, but dota is in no way a blizzard game.

Its far too early to even guess but from the way they were talking last blizzcon this will be a diversion but not near the level of 'srs bsns' that Dota 2 and LoL are.

The artwork is by a guy called "Carbot animations" , the video anyways, he does a series of funny videos relating to Starcraft 2 (another Blizzard game)

I don't think his cartoon will reflect the end products style

Two demo matches from Blizzcon, have to say it looks nice.



Spoiler: And yes, that was an Epic Tauren Chieftan on the Red team in the second match :D

Will try this out for sure but there is something about the art style that i really dislike. Maybe its cause of the fact they have been using the same style in every game since Warcraft 3...

LOL is basically a copy of the WC3 style though in fairness.
I think the games looks really good, signed up for beta...but I don't expect a chance to play it as usual

All praise forum creator and his mighty creative skills.
