Heroes of the Storm Official Game Site

I've been playing for a while (since alpha). Blizzard sent me a few extra beta keys to invite friends, but I don't have any (jk, they're mostly all in beta already). If you're interested let me know and I'll pm you a key.

First time posters need not apply. Obviously.

I'm in the beta it seems. Never played it though. What is it about?
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

It's a MOBA, similar to League of Legends or DotA. If you're not familiar with those, it's probably not for you

Thanks Rumor. Blizzard was blocked earlier when I was at work so I wasn't able to look the info up.

It's not nearly as trolly as other MOBAs, especially LoL and DotA, which is nice if you're just a "filthy casual".

I play a lot (almost daily). I like it more than LoL or DotA, but I never played those much to begin with. It's taken the place of SC2 of my go-to daily gaming fix. There are some balance issues, mostly to do with matchmaking (imo) that can be frustrating, but I think this is due to the beta state of the game and the resulting limited player base.

I've been interested in trying out a MOBA, but the barrier to entry seems overwhelming for an inexperienced player.

HotS has a coop mode (vs AI) thats pretty good for learning. There's quite a bit of helpful info on reddit too.

I didn't need a code. It was available to download through the bnet application.

Anyone else notice how good the music is in this game? Initially seems much better than LoL or DOTA 2.

Jawbone54, of course. Not too many people out there vying for that user name.

Just FYI battle tags aren't unique (some one else could also have Jawbone54) which is why we need the full tag (Jawbone54#1750).

Yeah, I was confused about the question until I googled it.

Then I felt like an idiot.
