Problem with bot games is that they are waaaaaaay too easy and they get boring super fast.

Eh. I'm enjoying them well enough. If I get a group of five people I kinda know... then maybe I'd consider normals.

I have to say I've found ranked crowd decent and almost never found any toxic player. The quick match crowd, though.... :S

Damn, Sylvanas looks awesome. Going to have to control myself long enough to get her at 10k instead of 15! :lol:

Anyone tried out/play hero league a lot? Not sure how it compares to just quick match. May want to try that at some point, but it 1) Sounds intimidating, and 2) I only play 6 heroes right now, and aren't super-interested in any of the others really.

15k gold? I'm buying her with $$$ as soon as she comes out, much hype so wow!



The Hero League is much "better" than quick matches. The biggest point is that people are all level 30+, so they actually have played the game a lot, know something about the mechanics, and try to build a proper team comp and cooperate.
All the games I've had in Hero League have been very enjoyable, both wins and losses, compared to the retardfest that Quick Matches are. The only downside is that there's the odd elitist who goes like I know all and demands you to take a certain champ cause "it's op", but you don't really find many of those at low ranks anyway.

Yes... demand I take a champ that I may or may not have ever played because it's "OP." That makes all kinds of sense.

That's quite a standard behaviour in all mobas sadly. If you played LoL or DotA you probably already know this.

I already am in, but wouldn't mind one for a good friend that would like to play.

(Are the "bring 4 friends" ones just random or something?)

I have no idea. My friend and I both got the email, but we've also been in since the Tech Alpha. I PM'd you a code.

Patch day!

Trying to figure out what caused all the Tyrande changes. I play her the most, and don't really have any idea what to make of all of this. :lol:

Her base heal got a pretty substantial buff (I think) - 33% better on a 33% longer CD. Really good for mana management and with CD reductions.

Can't take both Pierce and Healing Ward, though, which is irritating. HW covered a lot of her healing weakness.

They also put Trueshot in the same slot as Ranger. Nerfed TSA as well.

Not at all sure what to take a 1 or 13 anymore. Probably Overflowing Light at 13. No clue at 1 - Pierce was perfect there. I guess Mark CD, but that's blah.

Having Battle Momentum will be great, though.

So confused... :lol:

Yeah, she's pretty good.

Played just a few games yesterday - pretty weird. Tons more split-push than before, even on maps like Garden. Haven't gotten the new one yet.

PSA: Raynor's Q talents are broken right now (Confident and Bullseye don't do anything) - if you're playing him you have to do an AA build for now.

I'm sad. Out of last 25 ranked+quickmatch games I've played, I've lost 22. Either I'm VERY SHIT at this game, or I seemb to attract idiots who can't teamfight for good.

So uhm... That'll be a huge player base increase.

I wonder if my immense loss streak will finally end :P

Ugh, I know the feeling. I used to be decent with Valla, but I seem to be terrible now. :cry:

6-12 since I started player her again. Ouch. Pushed my overall back down below 55%, too. :(

Decided to give this a go, though I'm sure it'll not really be my kind of thing. Played through most of the tutorials, though I got stuck after the first one when I closed the menu - wound up playing a training game with AI before I found where the tutorials menu button was hiding again.

It's the multiplayer I'm not too keen on. Haven't reached that bit yet.

Considering with OpenBeta + Launch couple days ago the playerbase got the addition of a lot of novices who have never ever played a Moba, you shouldn't feel too uncomfortable playing multiplayer.


"Single player" gets boring very fast as it's super easy.

It's worth a try, at least - it's pretty fun. I never played LoL or DotA or anything before.

Do the tutorials, then into co-op ("vs AI, with the "AI teammates" button off) for a while until you pick up the flow of the game. Co-op is super easy and will teach bad habits after a while, so just use it to get a feel for a few of the heroes and the maps.

Then into QM!

It looks like quests can't be cancelled. Do they expire? I'm not sure I want to go into a real game as a healer, and it doesn't work in training mode.

No, you can't re-roll or time out quests. You can do them in co-op vs bots though.

And maybe this is just me, but as a beginner, I find healing characters more fun than melee. When I play a melee character, I just get destroyed as soon as an enemy hero shows up on the screen. As a healer, I actually get to participate and some of them have a strategic element. The only problem as a healer with bot teams is you will be healing like a champ and then all of a sudden your entire front line retreats behind you to be a punching bag!
