Play as your favorite characters to reach the glory in the battlegrounds

By Ellie Teller

On Monday, July 20, 2015

Heroes of the Storm is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) that features the most iconic characters from various universes. Players can use their favorite heroes from Warcraft, Diablo or Starcraft to join other four teammates in a battle for domination. Unlike other MOBAS, Heroes of the Storm excels in its variety of scenarios, each with a special mechanic that can tip the scales in favour of a team. This means that you can’t just rely on your strength in fights, you also have to worry about turning in enough doubloons or gathering skulls to awake a powerful golem.

The other big change is the absence of items. A character grows stronger through levels, but there are some key levels that bring minor perks known as talents. These talents can modify your current abilities or add new ones to your kit. Of course there are some powerful signature abilities that will unlock upon reaching level 10. Characters can choose among two heroic abilities that provide them with different spells depending on their role.

Pros

  • Different battlegrounds with varied mechanics and settings
  • Play as your favorite heroes from the three universes!

Cons

  • Earning gold can be difficult once you’re done with your daily quests

Review

Heroes of the Storm is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. It is available for PC Microsoft Windows and Mac. The company has decided to create a MOBA (even though they haven't called it MOBA because they say that it is something greater) with all the heroes of its more famous sagas. That means that you will be able to control the heroes of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo. This release is free-to-play, and it is supported by micro transactions.

5 vs. 5
5 vs. 5

Almost every gamer knows about the direct competitors of this release. Of course, we are talking about League of Legends (LoL) and Defense of the Ancients 2 (DotA 2). However, it is Blizzard, and if someone knows how to create successful game, it's them. Moreover, what does HotS offer that its competitors do not? To begin with, the vast number of well-known characters the players will be able to control. It is not the same to start with unknown characters than to start with characters you are fond of. Nevertheless, what really makes a difference is the ability to catch players with the challenging team combats.

Once you download this title, you will see that the graphics are not the strongest points of this game, but even so, they are living up to player's expectations. Blizzard has used the graphics engine of StarCraft II, and it has proved itself to work perfectly with these kinds of videogames. The modeling of the environments and champions is quite good, and the level of detail has been improved in comparison with the other games of the company.

The Heroes of Blizzard

As mentioned, plenty of champions of the famous sagas of Blizzard will be the characters you will control in this release. This way, from Warcraft you will be free to choose Thrall, the Warchief of the Horde, Tyrande, the High Priestess of Elune, Li Li, The World Wanderer and more. From StarCraft, you can choose between Kerrigan, The Queen of Blades, Abathur, the Evolution Master, Zagara, Broodmother of the Swarm, etc. Finally, from Diablo, you can play with Diablo itself, with Azmodan, the Lord of Sin, Tyrael, the Archangel of Justice, and plenty more.

You will be able to control the heroes of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo

Another strong point of this release are the maps. There are six different maps for the time being, but they will change later. This way, maps will be different from time to time and you will not play too much within them. Nevertheless, this is not bad news because this way you will not get used to just one arena and you will be forced to learn how to play with the rest. The maps are fully interactive, and knowing how to use this interaction can be the key to winning a match. For example, in Blackheart's Bay, you can make a deal with Blackheart and convince him to shoot his cannons to the rival team, so many of their constructions will be collapsed in a moment. Garden of terror offers the ability to defeat diabolical plants to get their seeds, and if you obtain 100 seeds, you will summon an extremely powerful creature that your team can control.

Take into account that Blizzard wanted to boost the team play, so mechanics such as "denial" or "last-hitting" have been rejected. Now, the entire team will earn the same experience, it does not matter who kills the enemy or who has contributed more. Thus, it is essential to participate a lot and try to help your team win, not just for yourself. The heroes do not level up, but the entire team, so just try to defeat as many enemies as you can, and help your team as much as possible.
