I do. It's fun. I still play Dota as well, just HotS gives me a different type of fun in like 20 minute games.

I fire up an aram or quickmatch every once in a while, I was really disheartened when we didn't get a new hero last patch. I figured whatever little development time is allowed for hots the higher ups demand it would turn up some revenue which means skins rather than a hero that everyone has gold stockpiled to buy with.
Such a shame, really is a fun game whose management fell prey to thinking they could take on established mammoths of the genre while being a latecomer.

Mostly find myself playing self sufficient macro heroes in quickmatch, Illidan, Samuro (Windwalk/Bladestorm) with an occasional glass cannon Greymane/Valla game.
Used to love tanking in ranked but wasn't very good at it, probably the hardest role in the game to play well.
>>
>>485372
I got too tired when yet another batch of reworks sucked the fun of the heroes I used to play. Blizz really needs to learn to let it go and stop the esports goose chase.
>>
>>486382
literally me
i might try this game again if they had a hots classic mode for a week
i couldnt keep up with the changes and stopped playing
>>
>>485372
I really wish it wasn't already too late for this game, it's the most fun I've ever had with MOBAs. No laning crap and tons of unique champs. Still, I remember it being even more fun back in the days where there were no Overwatch champs/donut steels and the Vikings had 80% winrate

Can't go back to the way things were before. It's current state is the toxicity of LoL with none of the pay off.
>>
>>485372
Nah, everyone in the game is completely negated by Rehgar's totem build. Wanna play a mage? 20% spell power reduction. Wanna play an auto attack hero? 40% attack speed reduction. Wanna play anyone at all? 20% movement speed reduction. Hit level 10? Rehgar gets bloodlust. Entire enemy team gets movement speed buff, attack speed buff, and healing. Rehgar's E, nullifies entire teams on a low CD, and nobody can escape the other team once bloodlust is popped. Game is fucked.

That rhegar rework is pretty recent, right? The hell were they thinking with it.

Honestly, HoTs is unironically the best MOBA out there imo. At least for PUG/solo players. Easy ways to disable/completely block out comms from your toxic af teammates. Short matches. Less reliance on individuals. Not as easy for a single player to get fed and become an unkillable god.

It's still a MOBA so I hate it in general. But honestly the most tolerable MOBA out there if you don't have a party to play with.

Played Uther for weeks to unlock his Mastery skin and the black default horse. Then 2.0 came out and everyone had a fancy skin + mount combo. I opened like 300 loot boxes they gave me for free. All the Mastery skins turned into filler. Lost all interest as nothing felt special anymore.

He got dmg, wave clear, mobility and utility on top of being real fun but he is far from best main healers.

In terms of utility or throughput yeah, there's definitely better. But as a unique and original support that isn't just another healbitch then Kharazim is GOAT right up there with Abathur.

Really good time to get into the game, like 21 heroes free if you get a new account to level 15; 100 gems for a shitton of heroes is back rn, you get a hero for signing up, using a friend code gives you a hero
>>
>>495061
Kinda but you need to see the whole picture. The really good part is the combination of leotard, tabard, elbow high gloves and thigh high boots (with a stylish cap!), which enhance her figure and bring the focus on her bare pits, shoulders, and thighs and her barely covered crotch. 10/10 outfit design.

Watch vids of folks like NotParadox if you have time. If not at least read up on your hero on IcyVeins before match so as to avoid total trap talents or meme builds.

Hero dmg and kills wins teamfights but XP and siege dmg wins games.
Early minion xp is worth more than kills.
If you have number and/or level advantage press the attack, if you are down a player or lvl/talent stay safe and soak.
Check minimap regularly. If you do not see enemies on map assume they are about to jump you.
Until youget some sense of what are you and your enemies capable draft cosnservative comps, i.e. Tank-Healer-Bruiser-Mage-AutoAttacker(with %dmg if possible.
Don't die for nothing.
>>
>>500912
Minions you yourself finish give XP immediately, those that you did not kill drop xp globe on death that you have to collect by moving nearby. If you let them sit there they got smaller and eventually wanish.
Mage minions, camps, objectives and some abilities drop globes with hearth on them - those are regeneration orbs that grant mana and hp regen. If they are blue they are yours so you can collect them instantly. After 5 sec turn pink which anybody can collect and after 3 more seconds vanish completely.

Youm can hold down your Rmouse button to move your character when in melee with many clickable objects.
Use your V to signal retreat; other options are by dfalut on drag menu under G.

It's mostly an SC2 meme because the competitive scene got killed. The game itself is still a Blizzard title and despite how much /v/ bitches and moans will mog 95% of all games in terms of playerbase.

Blizzard isn't known for shutting down legacy game servers, there's probably still minor revenue being generated and there are still players playing the game (enough to keep queues healthy - anecdotally).
That and it would be bad optics to shut down a game you dubbed as your 'love letter to Blizzard's worlds and characters' and promised to set it for long term sustainability.
I'm not ruling it out I'm just saying it's unlikely to change because of the deal.
>>
>>505083
Hard to tell. Games that have come to blizzlauncher from Acti are gonna go over to Xbox and Microsoft store for sure But for Blizz titles we would need to see the books. It is possible Micro may let small and old titles live for time being so fans won't throw a fit or they might off everything that doesn't make money even before actuall merger finishes since it might be easier to fire allocated personel that way.

Has LoL or DOTA gotten Xbox release?
If they have, there's hope for HotS.
>>
>>505508
They haven't, but HotS isn't the fastest MOBA out there and there's a couple of console/mobile MOBAs that control quite well despite the lack of mouse and keyboard. I'm sure an Xbox release would be costly and complicated to develop (what with giving it full controller support and shit), but it wouldn't be like, impossible to pull off.
>>
>>505083
Non news. There's probably basically nothing Microsoft would do to change existing titles for Blizzard. Diablo 4 is guaranteed to be very console friendly now though, and it's likely Hearthstone will be ported to consoles if it isn't already.
