    Current Iteration of MOBAs

    Heroes of the Storm appears to be a more current version of the MOBA genre of games. It has its visuals higher than its competition (May even compete with Smite visually). Blizzard's level of quality is not lacking here. Its gameplay is made more casually and it creates a more lax environment for these kinds of games. Removing things such as gear at the base equips and mounts, and heals on the lanes means you spend more time in the action.
    The maps and game modes are also different from match to match and create a more exciting queue.
    Those who are fans of the Blizzard universe of games, Diablo, Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Warcraft, and OverWatch are sure to enjoy this game.

    insanely fun and addicting PC arena brawler

    Heroes of the Storm succeeds where its predecessors have failed by making a MOBA that is appealing to the non-MOBA crowd. Gamers are welcome to be as competitive as they want in the game’s ranked matches, while the more casual crowd learns the ropes in the Quick Match option. As long as new heroes and maps continue arriving in frequent content updates, i expect Heroes of the Storm to have a very long and profitable lifespan.

    LoL but better

    The game is an excellent MOBA with great graphics, gameplay... The characters are great, and so are the skills... But one thing that makes it a bit better than LoL is the community... You'll very rarely hear someone insulting you, or comparing the game with DOTA 2 or League of Legends or any other game of the same genre..

    Funny

    This MOBA is good, I like playing this when I don't know what to do. People can love this game and play with friends is awesome. I think hardcore gamer can play this game because there are tournament and other things.

    Interesting and Casual.

    The game is quite interesting but It's casual , even tho a game being casual it's not a downside for some but for some others who are used in constant competition find it awful , for me at least it was a fun game to pass my time and lower my levels of boredom. The graphics are mediocre but not that bad , the gameplay was NICE , simple and clean but the community is as usual as you can find in totally free-to-play games quite toxic to some extend.

    Heroes of Blizzard Smash Brawl

    Heroes of the Storm: Blizzard's attempt to jump into the MOBA bandwagon. And what an interesting result this is.

    Blizzard did what Blizzard does, recycling its most prominent characters. But it shifted the focus of the game, in an innovative way, from the characters and their abilities set, to the map objectives and team work. And that's where HotS did its best to bring something new to the genre.

    If you want a MOBA where teamwork and working for objectives shines, instead of single characters carrying the game, HotS is for you.

    It has its downsides, of course. When you level up a character, you level up its skills. Though simple, by removing the necessity to build items, some characters can be rather flat with only 1 or 2 viable builds. And of course the game is harder if you're not in a pre-made party, in a game where teamwork and objectives are so important.

    But if you love Blizzard characters, have some buddies to team up, or you just want to enjoy a wide variety of characters and play styles without forgetting focus on map goals, this is the game for you.

    Your favorite blizzard characters in 1 game :D

    I personally really really like this game. I've played pretty much every mainstream MOBA there is. I have tested this in beta, and even then I already really liked it. The graphics are nice, you don't need a beast pc to run this.
    The heroes are very detailed, with even a small background story and some even have their own mounts. This game doesn't have a p2w system, but you can buy skins or mounts if you like. This doesn't really add anything to the game, aside from showing that you can afford it :P
    The gold gain is slow, but the diversity of maps and daily quests often make you forget that. I love the fact that they also do events, like new years or christmas.
    The ranked system is interesting, but also challenging. Somehow your skill level doesn't always match up to your teammates, or enemies. You can be good, but lose alot because you get crappy teammates. This game requires teamwork, which is both good and bad. I'm happy the community isn't as toxic (yet).
    It can be challenging to find chat channels, but if you /join general -something something- you can select your choice from the list, from what language you speak. From there you get different people who discuss things and you can join in or even join their channel. Its all very neat to keep track who is in which channel and if you don't feel like playing alone, there's always someone who will add you for friend bonus :)

    It's Blizzard what have you been expecting ?

    Well we all know that if Blizzard does something it will probably end on the top 5 list of that genre. When the HOTS came out it gathered just at the start a lot of people and the number of players is still growing. It's different enough to stand out in the crowd and still is similar enough to know with what your dilling with. It's your top pick if you want a quick match.

    Blizzard quality game

    Compared to other MOBAs like LOL, the community isnt as bad, the lack of item and team lvls as oposed to individual lvl is new. Being able to play as the heroes in all the other Blizzard games is cool. The biggest issue for me is that it has a very slow currency gain. The champion cost is roughly the same as LOL, but a win in HOTS gives less currency then a loss in LOL. The other issue I have is understandable as it hasnt been that long since the game released, but there currently is only a very few viable champ picks. If you watch tournaments you will always see the same champ with maybe 1 or 2 being different for the whole duration of the tournament.

    Most enjoyable MOBA, casual or serious

    I have played every major MOBA out there (LoL, HoN, DoTA, SMITE, and many more) and i can easily say that Blizzard har done something amazing with HoTS. By removing individual leveling and no gearing, the game is now a lot more based on player skill and team co-op. No longer can 1 extremely fed player carry a whole team, either everyone succeeds or everyone sinks. This forces people to communicate and really working together both for primary and secondary objectives. The graphics are probably the best there is, and the gameplay is extremely fluid. Also love the possibility to chose between two different "ultimates". One thing that has to be changed is the classes in the game. Right now, classes like Assasin or Warrior can contain very different characters, so they really need to create more classes that chars fit better in, so its easier for players to understand. Right now, and assasin can be melee, ranged or a mage, but some mages are "glass-cannons" while some are more tanky, while some melee assasins are more tanky than other. It just really mashes too many chars into the same class, and it doesn't really work. Except that, this game is fantastic, and new chars are usually very balanced from the start, not every time, but almost.

    player skill-oriented MOBA from Blizzard

    That was my first impression. And that's what this MOBA is stand for. Yes, it's easier than LoL or DOTA or SMITE. It's more team-play based, or better to say - map-oriented. Yes, maps are the most important part of the gameplay. Well, not maps itselfs, but their objectives. By winning them - you are pushing your team further. If you won the objectives - even if you died - it's a success.
    I have strong feeling, that Blizzard want to make this game more "player skill"-oriented - because they removed a lot of balance issues (read "items") and give their heroes some common or hero-specific traits, that based on their abilities. This will change game play for the specific heroes to more variable, so player will be able to tune his build to counter enemies' builds. And idea with two ultimates by choice is great!

    Not like any ordinary MOBA

    Most MOBAS are very person oriented in my opinion. But with heroes of the storm thats not the case. You get team experience and there is no gold to buy items. I think they did a good job with that because in most MOBAS when 1 person gets fed, that person can carry the whole game. It's not that fair.

    The Team Based Moba

    A good thing that this game has going for it is the community, in other mobas you will see a lot of toxic people, yet in this one you can hardly find any toxic players. This moba challenges you in a way that others don't, Teamplay, other mobas you can rely on Solo skill and carry a whole team-- but this one, a team truly stands out, only by working together you and your team can achieve victory, in this game, no one gets left behind.

    Also great for fans of any of the Blizzard franchises, a lot of recognizable and loved characters fill this game, and more are soon to come!

    Good work Blizzard

    Good game. Graphics are nicely done with few possible improvements,

    Excellent gameplay. Game that is pure display of how team game should look.
    The fact that you share experience and gold with your team, makes this game one of the best team game.

    Community is is relatively good, slighty better from the games I've played (like LoL, Dota 2..).

    Map diversity and diffrent strategies is something that I love so much about this game. Heroes are also divided by categories, and played in various situtations, team compositions.

    I've been playing this game since it's Beta phase, and this review is based on my epxerience with this game.

    Overall: Would defenitely recomment this game to anyone who enjoys pure team game , with bunch of strategies and play styles.
    Game is addicting, and I've felt so satisfied when playing it.

    Blizzard nailed even with the MOBA.

    Heroes of the Storm is fan service for someone who plays their game like me, and even more, is something that Blizzard as usual nailed to make something addictive and that you'll play for a long time when you'll get into it.
    A lot of champions from the Blizzard universes like Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft (and if you think this is all you're wrong) with a lot of roles and different spells and gameplay. Not just a go smash people until you get down the towers but a real match where you have to get objectives and cooperate with your team.
    Even the levels are shared in the team and you don't have to walk alone, there is no carry, just teamplays and Blizzard knows how to do it.
    Competitive, funny and addictive.
    If you like to be spoiled as well with some fanservice, you're served.

    Blizzard's answer to Valve

    Certainly the MOBA market is close to oversaturated. This MOBA however is close to the top sitting beside DotA and League. As you may know it's on the more casual side compared to his brothers, lacking certain mechanics, which doesn't have to mean it's worse, just targeting another market. Matches last about 20 to 30 minutes, the community is a bit friendlier from my experience compared to dota and lol. Blizzard constantly updates the game with new heroes, ballance patches so there's certainly more to be had in the future. Overall solid, fun gameplay, faster paced than its counterparts.

    LoL-lite isn't all too bad

    what people say is usually true: it's casual and "dumb-downed", if that term is applicable here. it's a fun experience, especially if you're a Blizzard fan. the community tends to be a bit more forgiving, and when each map has a slightly different mechanic it keeps you on your feet... kinda.
    the heroes or champions or whatever are infinitely more interesting than most MOBA games I've played/seen. a plus.

    It's a pretty good moba

    I started to play Dota Allstars back in the day because I loved Warcraft, Now, after all these years, I then tried out Heroes of the Storm because I love to play Dota.

    I find it kind of funny that I'm now more used to the Dota names than their original names, so it's kinda weird seeing the names when playing this game. Gameplay wise, I have no complains. It offers a lot of variation that can distinguish itself from the other MOBAs. I've only played it a short time so I was mostly just clumsily running around not knowing what to do so I haven't explored the depth of this game.

    It's certainly a good game but at the end of the day, I'm the kind of player that plays MOBAs only if my friends are playing it too, and unfortunately it's just not popular enough yet in my country.

    A more casual, but varied experience.

    Heroes of the Storm shares some similarities you’d expect from other MOBA titles, but brings through a stronger team dynamic due to its shared experience system. Featuring a lot of heroes from Blizzard lore, you’ll have plenty of Heroes to choose from; each of which having the standard tank, support, and damage roles.
    HOTS is different in regards to map rotation though. Each map provides different challenges in terms of mechanics for teams to figure out. Game type variation makes Heroes of the Storm a strong competitor in the MOBA space in regards to gameplay.
    However, monetization is a different story. Since this is a Blizzard title you will see a steeper progression curve, and higher prices across the board. For new heroes, this could mean the difference of $2.50 when compared to League of Legends for example.
    Overall, Heroes of the Storm is a fantastic multiplayer online battle arena that features a more casual, but varied gameplay style fit for those who appreciate the genre, but might need to see more than three lanes every once in a while.
