I've just started playing last week. Any point in starting a "Irish HOTS players" thread? I don't feel like looking through the SC2 thread for Bnet IDs!
I've found it enjoyable so far and the fact that you don't need to commit an hour per game is a big plus.
As a LoL player there are certain aspects I miss regarding the variance/items etc. I find its harder to snowball/carry due to some of the above and the global XP which can be a bit annoying but that could be my lack of experience too.
If I'm crushing my lane and I get an early kill or two it doesn't really matter that much which is what leads to the comeback mechanics.
I think it relies just as much on the team comp as other MOBAs (possibly moreso) so am looking forward to giving HL a go.
