    Also, if anyone is interested in getting a beta key, Curse is giving a ton away, apparently.

    If you're so desperate to play that you'll drop $40 on the game, you can buy the Founder's Pack and unlock some heroes/skins/mount and get a little starting gold.

    was so excited when I got my beta key, but this game is balls. League and DOTA are so much better.

    I enjoy not having to worry about CS, and the controls seem a bit more fluid to me. I have a much easier time kiting here than in LoL.

    I enjoy that it has elements of SR from League without the constant turtling that I disliked (which was why I mostly played Dominion in League) and not having to last hit being detrimental. The XP share allows more jungling and even certain interesting characters like Abathur to be possible. Objectives in map have your team roaming around than just sitting in lane all day. Games tend to around under 30 min averaging early/mid 20s.

    That aside, there are some issues.

    The recent character Sylvana is incredibly annoying to deal with because of how easily she solos everything (towers stop shooting, enemy minions stop attacking, an incredibly long silence ult, etc) in a lane when not contested and has a fairly reliable escape tool. You need to read her really well or gank her with more than one person to take her down (saving a root/stun just before she teleports). Similar issue is how the towers have ammo and can easily be taken down but I think that is just being so used to the way towers are in League being powerful and takes time to take down.

    Not quite as flashy in effects and sounds on some characters so you don't really see just how much you/they are hurting the other person.

    Lack of surrender vote is a bit annoying.

    Gold is a pain to get even though there are large awards for hitting levels with characters/account and daily quest. Honestly, stimpack bonus amount of gold you get really should be the default in general. It takes like about 50 games to get 1600 gold which isn't even enough for the lowest tier price range of a character (2000) and then there are the 15,000 range now (Sylvana). There is a cap on fighting bots as well daily.

    You don't unlock all your talents until level 5 on the character. You can get to 5 pretty damn fast but with the xp lock on fighting bots it makes it bothersome at first.


    I'm not the biggest Blizzard fan, most of my time with them was with SC1 with minor dabbling in SC2 when it was in beta (No Diablo/Warcraft related experiences) so I don't recognize many of the characters. I enjoy the game nonetheless with friends and surprisingly the community so far is good in beta. That may quickly change on release. My biggest issue right now is gold gain just from playing and lack of surrender option. I would tell people to give it a try for a few days and see how they feel then.

    If anyone wants to add me I am Torenia#1941 on NA.

    Been playing this off and on a bit, and yeah sylvanis can be annoying BUT, early on before the whatever talent that m makes her dagger attack apply a 25% damage debuff, she's pretty weak (unless your standing with minions, and she has the exploding minions attack).

    An assasin class like nova/zeratul? (stealthed dagger guy) can really fuck her up badly 1vs1.

    By time your lv 20's sylvanis can pretty much ass rape you quick if not careful, and a scary lane raping machine and can solo merc camps pretty easy (just not boss). only thing I worry about when playing her, is the stealthed assasins, they... will fuck yo shit up at lv20 (nova especially).

    Anyway, I enjoy playing sylvanis, great solo bottom lane clearing class, and nova, the "oh god where did 50-100% of my hp go in 1 second" assasin class. Probably my 2 favorite characters >.>
    (especially nova, since she can take about 50%hp off warrior/tank classes by like lv 14 or so in a combo that takes 1 second)

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Had a Hero League game with a Sylv on our team in Haunted mines. 60 golem and lane fort/keep down. 90 golem GG 11 minutes. Hitting the gate disabling both towers needs to be nerfed since she's a powerful team pusher. But yes her drawbacks is that she is glassy like Jania, but has superior escape mechanics.

    And I'll post a few keys on here when I get home. Most of my friends already have access and they're gathering dust in my inbox.

    Finally tried this out today. Liking it so far. Are any of the bundle sales worth getting? How long do sales last? Thinking of trying it a bit more before I spend any money.

    Character-specific bundles for the new characters are gone for good once they go. The mega-packs of multiple characters seem to be a regular fixture.
