Heroes Of The Storm

" The intoxicating high of overwhelming victory in Heroes of the Storm is stark in contrast to its painful, frustrating sense of crushing defeat. I left each game feeling either godlike because of its superb characters and combat, or worthless because of the disruptive secondary objectives and poor progression system."

Taking a glimpse at the masterpieces companies like, Riot Games, Valve Corporation etc. created Blizzard decided it was now or never to introduce similar but in some ways quite different MOBA game of their own. Exploring their own perspectives on the present MOBA games, resulted in creation of Heroes of the storm as one of the most recent games the market offers. Adding unique touch to already existing heroes borrowed from several of their other games, Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft just to name a few, Blizzard managed to entail a story that amazes fans.

Similar to the other MOBA games, League of Legends and Dota 2 mainly, the game takes place on the battlefield while two opposing team fight in order to claim victory one over another. The game flow does not extensively vary to what other games offer, though they made some tweaks to how the game develops to the later stages.

Adding to the element of surprise, Blizzard decided to go a step further and release not just one map but several, 7 to this point, where players have different objectives and tasks. This adds to the excitement of the player and overcoming that boring one map play style other games provide.

Unlike the other MOBA games where players individually scale in the game, and one player can carry the whole team or "rage" as he/she got players whose skills are lower than average, Heroes of the storm is based more on teamwork and mutual helping in order to successfully win the game. Whenever you take objective the whole team gets the experience and gold making them strong only when they are unanimous.

Adding to the unique play style of this game are the so called secondary objectives, which give the team a huge boost of power and ability to delete the opposing team from the map, thus preventing the game from devolving into poke wars or stalemates where teams are too afraid to engage with each other.

Heroes of the Storm is a free-to-play game so playable characters are limited to a free week rotation and characters are unlocked through Gold, earned by playing, or real money. Even though, right now the game doesn't offer huge variety of different heroes to play, being in further development promises a lot from this game. For what this games lacks, Blizzard compensated with different talents, maps, quests etc. which other games lack off. Given the game is still in development it is only fair to say it has a fair chance to become one the most played MOBA games in the future.
