I played it for about a week before it felt like there was nothing else I could get out of it

Its unlock system is just insulting too, it's easily the worst in the genre

It's a nice way to pass the time until Overwatch comes out
>>
It's the only MOBA that I can tolerate, if it even can be considered one.

The cast is fine, if not bullshit at times. Worst offenders are Illidan and Kael'thas. No other character can be as bullshit frustrating as these two fags; you're either really fucking good, or they're dragging your team down single handedly. There is no in between.
The maps are aesthetically pleasing, other than the raven one. FUCK that map.
The Pay to Win aspect is hilariously non-existent; all useful stuff can be earned through a moderate amount of gameplay. That is, so long as your group doesn't suck.
The team aspect is required, which is a good thing. Entire team levels, not just one dick sucker getting fed. This means you need your entire team to not be stupid, and you can do great with less time spent than other games.

The fact that it's free and has zero pay to win other than quicker player leveling (which only lets you get into rank matches or get your WoW pet) means it's a good game. It's definitely better than those number crunching games like LoL and Dota2, is more accessible to new players, and is much easier to master. Also, one of the few cases where less is more. Fuck 30+ keybinds, 6-8 is enough.

I go in phases with hots. I'll play the shit out of it for a month, then take a break for a month. Been like that since the alpha. Still enjoyable occasionally though, it's less stressful than Dota 2 since it's just easier to pick up and the games don't last long. I like the variety of maps, I think that goes a long way to make the game better since you're not just playing the exact same shit all the time
>>
>>322952325
It's ok. I like how it gets rid of the tedious parts of LoL such as last hitting, the weapon shop, and more varied maps.
>>
HOTS is pretty much the only good ASSFAGGOT because its aim is to be a fun video game and not a tedious e-sports simulator.

No, I think its aim was to be an e-sports simulator but failed and became a fun video game instead.
>>
>>322953849
>HOTS is pretty much the only good ASSFAGGOT because its aim is to be a fun video game
It aimed for it, but it couldn't have missed much harder
Also doesn't the game have a ranked queue and official tournaments?
>>
>>322954163
no the developers have clearly stated they aimed for a fun and casual game that fits their template of "easy to learn, hard to master" but as the game progressed through the Alpha they got overwhelming feedback to make it more E-Sports, so they decided to throw some tournaments for the fanbase. So yes its kind of both but "fun" came first.
>>
>People like it because it's easier than LoL and Dota
Just leave the casuals alone and let them have their fun.

No, it implies there are others that are less casual. There's an incredibly huge gap between "less casual than HotS" and "Hardcore."
You're an idiot.

And how exactly does one define the degrees of casualness?

The enemy team isn't going to fall into your lap and die for you so how is that casual?
Not having to PvE in a lane for 20 minutes, reading a build on mobafire and a focus on team fighting makes the game casual? Right.

Really its only competition is Dota 2 because it is actually a competitive and fun game. I don't understand how someone can play LoL or Smite, let alone half the other turds out there when this be all, end all exists.

HotS is gonna survive, if nothing else then because of Blizzard lifesupport. This isn't just a shitty SC2 map for them, this is a legit business move for the moba market.

easiest way to win is PvEing for map control

you mean like reading the ~2 useful builds each class has on hotslogs is better?
>focus on team fighting
you mean how you can completely win team fights endlessly and the enemy team can just catch up in levels with little to no effort, making all that team fighting pointless?

Go fuck off if you dont know what youre talking about faggot

Usually you'll have to go through the enemy team to do that though

>>322961790
You're talking out your ass. HOTS has a lot of players

>>322961790
Dude all they have to fuckin' do is do a "get a free Hearthstone pack if you win a game of HotS!" event or some shit and suddenly it's full of people. They've got a huge normie userbase and it's literally right there in the battle.net client, free to play.
>>
>>322962046
>>322962148
yeah so huge playerbase that soloq takes 2+ minutes to find a fucking game

It's a neo-Blizzard game made solely to jew players. It's the worst ASSFAGGOT on the market, and that's saying a lot.
>>
>>322962046
So are you, fagtron, they don't make player counts public.

>>322962398
Sounds about right. Dota 2, which is definitely larger, takes that long too. Industry standard.

>>322962398
It takes me 2 minutes to find a game in Dota 2. That's about the average wait time for these kinds of games.

>The team aspect is required, which is a good thing. Entire team levels, not just one dick sucker getting fed. This means you need your entire team to not be stupid,
Only part that infuriates me. You're not rewarded for making great plays but rewarded by not making shit plays. Individual skills have little impacts and it's ridiculously hard to carry games. If I want to carry, I have to babysit my entire team by telling them what to do and when to retreat, AT ALL TIMES. I have to watch for overextending players, I have to watch for missing people in their lanes and ping danger to my mates.
It's really exhausting if you want to win.
Or I could just "play for fun" and ride the 50% winrate train but that's just unacceptable for me.
>>
>>322954982
>"easy to learn, hard to master"
Isn't that the motto of half the competitive games now-a-days?

What developer that makes multiplayer games doesn't want to break into the e-sports theme anyway? It's free money and fans will buy anything you throw at them. Having a large enough autistic fanbase is basically years of free money no matter how bad you get. Look at WoW, FNaF and CS:GO.
