          Oh I didnt say that was the only reason.
          But the only OW hero on release that wasnt busted was Zar and thats should tell you a lot.
          Hanzo, Genji, Dva, Junk, ESPECIALLY Tracer went full powercreep on existing heros.

            In what world are you living. Dva was seen as usless for a long time and Tracer while strong didn't become a true menace until people paired her with Medivh or Tassadar has any strong auto attack shut her down hard.

          The game failed because blizzard killed it since it wasn’t the esport Golden Goose they’ve been chasing since LoL took off, but the actual game was indeed ruined by the shitty hypermobile OW heroes that powercrept everyone else out of the game.

                I didn't ruin anything because I played a shit ton in closed beta, open beta, and early release, to form an educated opinion on how garbage the game is to then quit it and never touch it again. I had zero impact on how bad the game was even before release, and all the bad decisions they made after the closed beta. The single only good thing about this dogshit single digit IQ casualbaby braindead reddit nu-blizzard game was the Tyrande OC I made.

                And he doesn't spawn behind you. Vorpal Blade spawns him literally on top of his last target. Meaning it's complete RNG where he gets "pushed" out to when the hitboxes collide.
                Yes you could "catch" a zeratul by placing Kerrigan's delayed stun on top of herself, but that doesn't change the fact that zeratul can just NOT teleport to you and make you waste your stun.

                If you're running away from where we teleported he'll pretty much always pop back in behind you.

                I wait so he either has to teleport back in to attack me (and get stunned) or he misses his window to open back up on me. It's not TOO hard.

                Sleep is a hard CC. Anything that outright prevents movement is hard by the average definition. If you can still move and control your character but other actions are impaired its soft
                Sleeps, stuns, knockups, knockbacks, fears, charms/hypnotizes, and roots are hard CC.
                Disarms, blinds, silences, slows, grounds, cripples are soft, usually, because you can still move around.
                The issue from the Hard/Soft separation is that things like silences and polymorphs, which are technically soft CC, are a shitload more dangerous than slows or even some knockbacks or other forced movement.

                If you knew what to look for, it made all stealth heroes a huge joke because of how weak they were before the rework. Now Zeratul will still wreck your shit and he doesn't really care if you see him or not.

                You mean give an unstoppable, which only a few select healers have available.

    It eliminates a lot of the boring shit in MOBA. Talent trees are a really good way to change how a hero plays even if it's not perfect. I still think it needs itemization, though. All in all, it's a good multiplayer game to pop in and play. If you are playing ranked, go play DOTA or League instead.

      This. Talent trees were a great way to streamline items. I don't even think HotS needed itemization at all, the thing holding HotS back was always globally shared XP making it impossible for anyone to get a meaningful lead. If they'd gotten rid of shared XP and added characters from Blackthorne and Rock n' Roll Racing HotS would've been perfect.

          Not really.
          In League, every patch a couple of items outclass the rest. So it is basically mandatory to build whatever is OP or else you're just throwing.
          For instance, a tank item (Sunfire Cape) was so good at one point that it is a first buy item on assassins, even though assassins have their own designated items.
          Item "build diversity" in League is just a way for Riot to force a shake-up in the meta, subsequently selling skins to the next set of OP champs affected by said changes.

          Their might be some troll talents in HotS, but since it is a casual for-fun game the impact of your choices isn't as huge as buying the wrong items in League.
          Plus some talents were stronger/weaker on certain map objectives, which made lesser talents viable.
          Also having two ults to choose from is pretty cool.

          Dota 2 is always in pursuit of balance, so it's hard to answer for that (especially since I haven't played since pre-7.00). I would argue that its items are well balanced, especially when you keep in mind you can only hold 6 of them (+3 in backpack but they don't do anything in there and pulling them out puts them on a cooldown of 6 seconds, so you can't MLG NoScope swap stuff and use it immediately)
          In terms of HotS, I didn't mind items vs. talent trees, the game's biggest issue was how dependant it was on objectives when most of its playerbase is braindead and completely ignored them, so even if you have a working brain cell you can't do shit alone.

        Not really. I've noticed that a lot of pros inject their own Biases into balancing opinions, and if the developers listen to them then you see the game stagnate around like 2-3 characters as the pros view them as "the correct way to play the game"

        It was particularly stupid in TF2's case as the pro players weren't even playing the same game as Casuals, 6s is about as valid as vs Saxton Hale as a basepoint for TF2 balance.

        Best weapon that exemplifies this is the Quick Fix, the thing is viewed as stupidly overpowered in 6s, but in the 12v12 enviroment of Casual with random crits and way more damage flying around, its a sidegrade at best.

        A lot of their balancing takes felt like they wanted to keep 6s the same, and keep the off classes out entirely or at a bare minimum, which honestly they could do with their own balance mod. Its not like Valve cares.

          esports really is a weird place right now and the entire reason why it is is because of try hards. In regular sports it's all about who is better. It doesn't really matter what you do or how you do it, if you win you win. Meanwhile in esports you have shit like with Smash where going outside the meta literally shuts down the entire scene because the "pros" can't handle anything out side of their boring meta and will literally have a mental breakdown over it.

          Weird how all the people who apparently loved this game never said a word about it until it died

          No we have, but LoLosers and DOTArds kept coming in and shitting up the threads. The entire appel of the game was that it was super smash the MOBA. No one wanted a shitty grindfest like with league and DOTA and it still had enough skill for people who really cared to actually do cool shit and have a chalange to it instead of every character requiring 10000 hours to master with minimul results.

        Talents in HotS are limited to one per tier and are pre selected by Blizzard, you're not allowed to mix and match creatively. Also most of them are really weak powerspikes before level 10 considering talents are your only form of progression. HotS just feels like a top down version of WoW arena. Even Dota 2s 20-25 talents end up being more impactful than most HotS level 20 talents.

        I feel like they felt it was weird that hots hadn't any representative character when talking about blizzard games so they tried to create at least one character to represent the game, which was orphea, I also think that the original character idea could be used for kits they wanted to make that simply wouldn't fit in any of the already existing blizzard characters.
        Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure they only started to think about this representative character idea later on, as the lore of the nexus wasn't even that much interesting on the beggining and barely anyone cared about it, I'm pretty sure there are people that doesn't even know this game has lore.

                They also could have used the opportunity of the comics to make more cool crossover stories and to have the crossover itself being the main part of the lore, from the little that they got to show it felt like the blizzard characters were just toys used by the nexus lords to fight for them on their wars.
                I think they would have gone for the focus more on the crossover route eventually as they got the game to have a representative character, had the game lived a bit longer, but who knows.

    I liked the different maps and objectives. What I always disliked in MOBAs, especially nowadays, is that you literally play the same map for hundreds of hours, atleast shooters have map and objective variety.
    League, for instance, was much more enjoyable for me when they were pumping out all those gamemodes like DoomBots, StarGuardian and Odyssey PVE, Snowdown Showdown, and yes even Twisted Treeline and Dominion was fun.
    I loved that on one map you collect coins for the pirate, even if it's pretty much the same as collecting seeds at the garden map, atleast they are thematically different.
    Now, one could argue that it's harder to balance characters for multiple maps, but RIOT can't even handle a single map even after they've shut down the extra game modes precisely because "it's hard to balance".

      You could lose the coins and could only turn them in at one point in the middle of the map, very vulnerable to an attack. Blackheart's Bay was probably one of the most complicated map in the game because there was so much to do. I think it was even removed from pro games pretty early in the game's lifespan.

      Try Witch Doctor, Undying or Negophos in Dota; it doesn't really have dedicated healers/supports the way most games have because a support is just someone who gets less gold, not necessarily a buffer/healer but healer characters can be cores and get gold priority.

Worse is that they hated the idea of people playing their old games so they activley tried to kill that as well instead of supporting.

    To me it was the only MOBA that felt like it focused more on just being fun rather than being competitive.
    And it really did feel that way to me. As someone that played a lot of League and DOTA 2 before it I think HOTS is definitely more fun to play.
    I want them to revive it but I know it will probably never happen, especially with them officially announcing ending development in July.

    I was a top 50 ranked player in the beta (with the third party ranking but still). I had the highest Valla winrate in the world at around 70% for some time playing a build everyone kept telling me is shit until the real pros figured it out and started playing it in the first tournaments. This game was never good. Half of the focus being on PvE is cancer, and the game is literal communism. Every award you receive from being good is split among your team. You can't get fed and hard carry shitters on your back, There is no carrying in the game. You're always as equally as strong as your opponent and you obviously can't 1v5. If your team is shit you lose and can't do anything about it. That combined with the good ol' 50% forced winrate MM system makes for an unfun game.

    Anyone that ever liked this game is clinically retarded or a casual.

        This entire game is a has-been, and as a matter of fact this game was never something in the first place, because it never got popular. Because it's shit. Your opinion of a literal lesser human being for damage controlling this liquid shit blizzdrone bait is what's worthless. The only redeeming qualities the game had was cool characters from the blizzard universe, and even then that was still ruined, because that also means it comes with characters from pozzed nu-blizzard franchises like OW.

            I didn't ruin anything because I played a shit ton in closed beta, open beta, and early release, to form an educated opinion on how garbage the game is to then quit it and never touch it again. I had zero impact on how bad the game was even before release, and all the bad decisions they made after the closed beta. The single only good thing about this dogshit single digit IQ casualbaby braindead reddit nu-blizzard game was the Tyrande OC I made.

Meanwhile, the average Dota game still gets more kills/minute than the average HotS game, a lot of old Dota players even complained that Dota has become too fast and brawly

    I wonder what it costs to run a moba.
    Also, I wonder how much of the appeal of hots was getting to see the blizz characters you knew in a different setting.
    Would love to make a moba that's just hots and all the same hots characters but 'different'.

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      I remember that the bloated cost of Hots was because they kept scrapping and redoing everything during development. If you got a focussed team with just one guy calling the shots, a small group of dev could pull it off with a moderate budget. You could even just buy a Moba blueprint in the Unreal store if you want to go extra lazy

      The que times are still really fast, mostly under 2-3 minutes with sometimes instant and under a minute. The only time it might take a while is if your playing ranked at like 5 am in the morning or something. Both quick play and ranked have a pretty decent amount of people playing.

          I'll maintain this theory until my deathbed: Qhira was supposed to be an overwatch hero, either a synergy release that never came through because Tigole was incompetent at running the show and couldn't get to release or just a plain original to deepen the lore of the setting/Numbani but Tigole threw a bitchfit that other people were better at running his setting than he was.

                One, I have no idea which site you're using for this (I typically use Heroes Profile), but it's probably dependent on upload matches so it's not going to be accurate

                Two, you can't look at aggregate result for high skill cap heroes to determine whether they're good or not. Genji has an abnormally low win rate because shitters always play him and he requires a lot of skill to play. Same with Zeratul.

      Only fun moba with actual unique champ designs. They were not afraid to take risks with characters like Abby, Murky, etc.
      Even the simpler ones conceptually could be played differently through talents tree.
      Like
      Most fun support I've ever played in the genre, together with Stukov.
      In League, a support is just a variation of either Lux or Leona, nothing unique.
      All ADCs in League are exactly the same, while HotS had some pretty unique ones while still giving you vanilla champs like Valla and Jimmy.

      Really a shame it died though.

    What are the chances they'll start supporting it again after the Microsoft buyout? Maybe even HotS 3.0 with battle passes, fuck I'd honestly take the monetisation being butchered again just to get updates again.

    i've played since the Alpha

    it was good because it was casual focused and low stakes so matches could actually be FUN rather than anxiety-inducing min max optimization runs like i was used to in DOTA 2 at the time. the dev core was also extremely passionate and ostensibly had very little oversight from the top brass at Blizzard because they were able to get away with skins and emotes that you'd never in a million years see anywhere in Overwatch or WoW. plus it felt smooth as fuck to play and the pace of the matches was great.

    unfortunately it arrived on the scene way, way too late. League and Dota were already firmly entrenched as the top two competing MMOs and there was absolutely no incentive whatsoever for anyone who played those games to switch to HOTS full time, aside from the fun factor - sadly, that's not enough these days, as even casuals demand a little bit of carrot-dangling now

    when it became apparent that it would never truly find its competitive legs (which is what blizzard wass trying to capitalize on all along) they axed it.

      Tank in hots was in general quite a fun role, has a massive influence on the outcome of the game. A good engage makes the fight go really well, but doesn't necessarily instantaneously end it. League's time to kill has gotten way too low, even post durability update.

    HotS was great and the very last bit embers of soul Blizzard had. The designs of the characters were great. It was fun to play, and more importantly the matches that were not fun tended to end fast. Because the game it's self was designed to be shorter matches. It was also destined to fail.
    >came out WAY too late, the MOBA "fad" was over, there was a clear winner. LoL.

      Blizzard really fucked up with Garrosh's representation in Heroes of the Storm. His abilities and role do not fit his character fantasy in any way. His kit should have been for another character.

      Yes, he is fun to play. But he should have been a bruiser, like Artanis, but with burst and less focus on defense and with an ability to force 1v1.

      >what Blizzard devs did
      Hey guys we plan to release Garrosh somewhere in summer 2017

    The best thing about HOTS is character design. Even if each character belongs to one of 5 roles. Each of them has quite unique mechanics, some of them have very crazy mechanics. Like Abathur that can globally can just put and control symbiote on all friendly units, including teammates, and spam spikes or shield his host, or Chogal that requires 2 player to be played or deathwing that is basically a controllable raid boss that for balance reasons cannot get heals and buffs from teammates.

    of the few i've tried hots is by far the most fun moba to jump into with a casual attitude. i skipped the autistic ladder climbing bullshit I did with sc2 and league to just fuck around trying different heros and different builds. i don't think it's possible to even come close to balancing a game like HotS so if OP champs bother you a lot then you'll probably hate it.

          The whole appeal of HoTS was always the fact that it was a "World Collide" game. But instead of making cross-universe skins they added dumb fucking skins and events like Toys or Dark Nexus when they could've done more altered fates style skins & events like the Maiev/Illidan/Tyrande/Malfurion ones, or the Queen of Ghosts Kerrigan skin.

    I played a fair amount of this game, not a dedicated player but probably clocked 100-200 hours. I think my largest gripe was that once you start losing, it's nearly impossible to make a comeback. Winning objectives usually snowballs you into winning since you typically get to kill towers for free and thus get faster pushing waves and can dominate more of the map, allowing you to take objectives easier. On some maps winning the objective twice is enough to win the game on it's own.
    After playing league and hots years ago (since I haven't played either in years) I can say that I enjoyed hots more. It was so much more creative and the heroes had genuine variety and some were truly fun as fuck. It's a shame I completely lost interest in mobas and the game stopped being fun, because it was something special at some point.

    It was never good. It was worse than all the other mobas on the market and that was the reason it died. Only autistic blizztards claimed it was better because they haven't played a non blizz game for decades and hipsters that playing a non mainstream moba made them think that they are better than the average moba player.
