Heroes of the Storm Review

Why would you pick Heroes of the Storm over League of Legends or Dota 2?

It's way, way easier to learn, and games play out at a far quicker pace. Thanks to the shared XP system there's no need to learn how to last hit. Thanks to the lack of items, you won't need to learn how to buy the right items. You'll just be learning map strategy, teamwork and character builds from the off.

Necessarily, that means HotS is a shallower game. But it's a more instantaneously exciting one.

Raynor, Muradin and Jaina to pick up different kind of mechanics.

I cut my teeth playing Tyrande and Uther. Stitches is a laugh, too.

How imaginative is the Heroes of the Storm lore?

It's bananas, frankly. The justification for the MOBA is that somewhere in the universe is a special Nexus where all the Blizzard characters get together to fight, die, and infinitely respawn. It makes no sense and is, coincidentally, brilliant.

It consists of an awkward throat clearing and an admonition to not pay it much attention.

You'll get a game very quickly. Quick Matches are of varying quality - Blizzard are working on the matchmaking algorithm at the time of writing.

It's worth pointing out, too, that Heroes has a relatively welcoming community compared to similar games.
