Footman Heroes of the Storm News & Gameplay Discussion

So did anyone at Blizzcon play it? What details can you give?

The Internet isn't giving me much also if you are going to play it I think you should get past you SoL hate for Muradin and try him

Also use this thread for discussion on it.

Wouldn't this fit better in either the Starcraft or General forums?

Honestly, he probably did it as a mistake but more people do look here than the Warcraft General forums.

I really don't think it matters much but the Blizzard general discussion probably would have been better.

It's gonna have to be pretty fecking amazing to pull me away from LoL.

I still think they should have capitalized on DOTA and bought it out before Valve did.

I think it sucks, at least model/character-wise. Some are cool, but they would better get custom models for everyone. Everything is recycled except half of the heroes.

Also, what happened with evil versions? I didn't see them anywhere.

Don't like there's Arthas and then Uther, stupid redundancy, when there's so many characters that could make it well into the game. Garrosh and Varian come to mind, for example.

I am guessing that Arthas was put in as a character from WoW and Uther as one from Wc3 since they are also putting in the Wc3 Blademaster hero. Not sure how you could complain about this really since i totally see them letting us play Garrosh and Varian as well but i guess we will have to see on the Blizzard DOTA panel.

How is the lord of the Undead and an old human paladin redundant...?

Now that I notice it, the blademaster isn't anywhere on the new version O_O.

Because we were, at least formerly, going to get evil and good versions of all characters, meaning we would have Lich King Arthas and Paladin Arthas.

Even if it was changed, someone like Tirion would have fit the position better, imo.

Because there are more than 12 heroes... It is explained in the FAQ that you unlock more heroes by playing.

Notice how in the trailer you see Sylvanas and even a Goblin Tinker, but none of them are displayed on the selection screen.

Maybe it will simply depend if you are on the red team or blue team...

We barely saw the info on this, so yeah...

Mounts!

This really is DOTA 2, unlike Valve's crappy copy of the original.

Very true in the sense that it adds change to the game and makes the meta game quite awesome... This is totally going to become HUGE on the competitive scene and more fun to commentate and watch which will go so far.

Its just like what LoL did with adding new stuff making it much more than just a clone.

DOTA2 will have serious problems. Blizzard said they would give dota for free with the started edition of SC2. So, BlizzDota = free, Valve = not free.

It is a DOTA based Battleground and its the same as DOTA almost literally and the best way to show you this is basically for you to google gameplay of Smite and Loco as they already use this gamestyle.

Blizzard DOTA? Heh, think of the epic crossover fan fiction that could be written from this!

Can anyone tell me what Muradin's abilities are?

It looks like Stormbolt, Thunder Clap, Charge(?), and Avatar.
