You guys should do some research, the MMR system in this game is broken as hell, I can roll a smurf and get platinum easy whereas I have 0 chance of getting that on my 3000+ played games main. It's just broken... and don't even get me started on quick match.
That's the kind of excuse bad players use to feel better about being bad. The only reason HotS isn't bigger is the sunk cost of players who have already invested in other MOBAs.
Exactly. And I think Bioware are suffering from butting up against the Uncanny Valley. I'm also very interested to see what CDProject are doing for Cyberpunk 2077. They are the only other people I can think of that are doing facial animation at this detail and frequency.
The price is that most of their games look like cartoons. Depending on personal preference this might or might not be a problem.

It's hard to build a sturdy house quickly when you first have to make the hammers and nails...and found the company. 3.0 is going to be like the first floor (and basement?).

I have a few Ubi games but haven't launched UPlay in years. I haven't bought a Ubi game since Blood Dragon and won't be buying more in the future.
