Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

I love nazeebo and abathur, but probably not great for a beginner.

Tychus is really squishy imo, as is valla. Rather go with raynor first. For supports, malf and tassadar seem straightforward, never played lili.

Falstad is the hero I crushed with when I played the first couple of times, so much burst dmg.

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

I would start with Stitches or Diablo. Diablo is especially forgiving later in the game if you take all the tanky options. And he can throw players behind gates or push them into towers. Same with Stitches gorge and hook. Hammer is very good if your team understands how to protect her or if the other team ignores her too much. Nova is still great against new players as they just run around with low health and are easy pickings for Nova.

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

I watched some ESL major matches, seems like Conjurer's Pursuit is picked every time for Tassadar, whereas all the guides I have found suggests Overload. Thoughts?

Also where do you guys find hero guides?

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

Is this game in open beta now? Because I'll only play if I get to feel a sense of exclusivity.

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

Bought the 5€ pack and I have to say Raynor and Muradin are really fun to play, so the pack is easily worth it for me. Now I have 10k gold and have to decide what to buy... Some 2-3k heroes or a big 10k fatty.

Someone did the math, best value dollar wise is to spend your gold on characters that cost the least gold.

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

Never played this genre but it's fun. Doesn't seem like a grind, reward system is keeping my interest. Great for a small group of friends that know how to communicate and coordinate. I like that it feels like an rts mixed with pvp wow.

I've been jumping face first into different heroes instead of practice, stayed with Raynor to start and some notables have been lili if playing with my group or the ranger/healer forget her name elf.

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

Looks like none of my friends are interested or they are already in the closed beta.
I have three closed beta keys to give away. First come first served unless people offer money. Post here if you want it and I will send you the key. No brand new accounts so at least there is a chance the person getting the key won't try to sell it on.

Pretty sure they work only on the NA servers

Re: Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard MOBA, now beta signups)

I got the email with four beta keys too. I'll probably have a couple left over after seeing if any of my friends want them. I think everyone I know is either already in or doesn't care to play. If anyone wants one, let me know.

Also, my battletag is Dazarath#1968 if anyone wants to play. I don't really care about skill level, as I play with people who are anywhere from super new to reasonably experienced, but I don't tolerate ragers.

Daz, I'm McNulty#1363

I have completed the training and that's it. So I probably am pretty bad.

Technical alpha uses completely separate test servers. Closed beta runs on the same battlenet infrastructure as the other Blizzard games. Alpha also has a lot less people testing and is not considered stable yet. This was the first Blizzard game where technical alpha was open to the public.

PM sent. That was the last one for now. Zipzap I would not have sent it to you anyway as I wanted it to go to people that at least have spent some time on these forums. A completely new member wanting to give it to a friend is too likely someone trying to sell it on which I don't want.
