    Great idea. Great execution. Massive improvement on the MOBA experience.

    Not as profitable as League. Scrapped forever. Fucking Hogger is the last hero there will ever be.

    I don't know if it was the death of HotS or the horrible, embarrassing WC3 remake that came first but one or both of them heralded the end of Blizzard caring about anything but quick cash.

      At least on the dev side HotS had lots of love and passion put in it, sadly the higher ups wanted that E-Sports money and forced shit.

        I remember when a player made a cool compilation of Azmodan dunk shots set to Space Jam music https://youtu.be/GXRGqiOdC5k?t=25

        Six months later Azmodunk was a real skin for HotS. That felt like they cared about the community and liked their own game.
        Also the inclusion of Carbot portraits and sprays was awesome, that guy really liked HotS. It was awesome to include him in the actual game.

        All that, then boom. Fuck the game. It doesn't generate $2m quarterly, it's dead now. Buy a WotLK boost, pet, mount, and bone dragon dildo. Fuck Activision up the ass.

                It really doesn't matter. Under no circumstances is it acceptable to match a level 1 player with a level 300 player on their first match ever. What's the point of matchmaking then?

                Level means nothing retard, average player skill is what is most important. If that level 300 is being matched against a new player that means he plays as well as one.

                It does indicate time played and like I said, it's unacceptable to match a person that basically has 0 hours to a person that has enough time to level to 300. Name a non-shit game that does this.

                I said the MMA towards the end was terrible, but i rarely saw anything like that before blizzard pulled the plug.
                That being said, it does matter, you're the lvl1 who decided to queue with other players. The skill floor of this game is fairly high so just a few games against bots and you would have been good to go, but instead you went retard, jumped in the deep end and are now crying about it.

                So it's my fault that the game basically has no matchmaking? Yikes

                regarding matchmaking newer players vs low skilled much more expirienced players.

                Not really, Valorant doesn't have this problem. If you queue up your first game ever, you'll be put up in the same level range as you (whether or not that's really indicative of their skill level or not is a different matter entirely). But that's how non-broken matchmaking should work.

                you're simply wrong. as someone who's played more than one round i can absolutely assure you there are people 500+ lvls that are far worse than newer players who have come from other mobas. lvl 300 being on par with medium/hard AI is not even remotely unheard of.

        most people play MOBAs for two reasons. 1, an epic combo that comes together, 2 carrying a team. Just look at the other MOBAs. In DOTA people are willing to play hypercarry heroes that are useless for 20 minutes just because they like that late game experience of being able to fuck everyone up. People always want the solo lane since that gives extra exp and gold. Supports are the least played in LOL because being dependent on your team to do anything sucks. In HOTS tanks and supports constantly get the exp bonus for picking them in quick match.

          You still can carry and snowball a team as damage dealers in hots with their huge numbers of damage. But instead of being the only retard to have a snowball effect it's everyone in your team. I don't want to carry your useless ass through early games so that I would want to be useless support drone in late or just a damage sponge as tank while risking hearing your stupid gay mouth screaming how we lost the game because you couldn't farm for 30 minutes. Flaming is still in HOTS, sure, but not as much as in other games and I don't waste a hour for a match.

            with the way EXP works you dont want your retard teammates to get leveled up. That way they just become worth more to kill. Also it means that the best player doesnt get the most power in the team. Sure, the dota system has problems too, but I think the hots system took away the core appeal for a lot of people.

              Here is something for you to consider: killing a leading team in the exp networth is still as valuable in Dota as in HOTS, just a little less. And if you have retards on core roles in Dota it's as bad as in HOTS. Honestly I'm ok with those power creep retards not playing the game, and yes I hate MOBAs as someone who wasted thousands hours on Dota.

                Alright alright, a little less valuable, still as dota is different roles will have different killing rewards for that. Ganging and killing cores in dota is only more valuable than in Hots because cores also lose shit, so every other guy in the team need to make space for one or two gays. Still killing a support hero for a mistake in Dota IS as valuable as killing a support in Hots.

      Smash Bros is comparatively easier than any other fighting games and it completely shits on then in terms of sales. Blizzard should have gone more into that Smash Bros like feel. It may have always been third place because MOBA players are sweaty, but it would have continued to grow and encroach on the other games if it played to its strengths. Blizzard is notorious for fucking up their series. Look at how fast Overwatch is dying. Might not be long till it joins Hots in maintenance mode.
