    looks like things are starting to ramp up for this.
    Officially named Heroes of the storm today and twitter account started up.
    Will be interesting to see how much of a dent they can make into the Moba scene.

    You probably have to be into SC2 to get it.

    They're WAY late to the MOBA party. Riot owns the market.

    Blizzard All-Stars is a far better name. (while still being shit, 'Heroes of the Storm' is far too generic to be memorable)

    too little too late.

    By the time they'll release it, it'll be near/after dota's 10th year anniversary since release. Did **** all for the community in those period too.

    The update will be retarded like blizz's other titles:

    "Community feedback" aka vocal crybabies > Developer statements about their gaming philosophy > Announcement on what they'll do in the future > major bug appears out of nowhere > hotfixes for minor updates > Preview samples of upcoming patch > game related merchandise (books/t-shirts/shitty in game ui's) > Developer Q&A's > Some thinly veiled comments by community manager that causes a shitstorm/players take advantage of in the current or future patch > beta preview > "data mining leaks" > beta runs for few weeks > people hype the shit up about something in the beta but it just turns out to be a bug> the beta drags on, players keen for the tuesday maintenance > patch released with needed changes but game is now a step closer to casual turdfest.

    Saw this coming as soon as they registered the name, they're just folling the same format as every other DotA clone.

    That's probably why they renamed it, so people can just say it like that. One syllable catchy contraction like "LoL".

    Anyway no gameplay = no care. It'd have to be something special to get me to switch from DOTA.

    Meh. Should only cause confusion if you're too dim to recognise the context of any current discussions.

    Dude,that goes without saying,if you are in a conversation about a game then you know what game you are talking about but imagine searching HOTS on the net when Heroes comes out.
    You will get 2 different games popping up from the same company.
    Its funny because blizzards response to this was that the game will be shortened to "Heroes" while heart of the swarm will stay as HoTs.
    Like they can dictate what people are going to call their game.

    Heart of the Swarm is just Starcraft 2 at this point.

    Then don't search by the acronym and/or use additional wild cards like "F2P" and "MOBA"? This shit isn't hard, bro.

    Well it's a MOBA, not WoW or D3. This probably the one Blizzard game that shouldn't be idiotproofed.

    More competition is a good thing for everyone involved.
