I’m No Hero
I got invited to the Heroes of the Storm Alpha so I dove into it a bit. Now I’m never played an MOBA style game before so I have no frame of reference, is that a good thing or bad thing I don’t know yet. The good thing is I’m not jaded by other MOBA’s to hyper critical of this game, and I can just play it, and have some fun.
Lets start talking about the Heroes themselves. There are 4 basic types of heroes.
Types of Heroes
Assassin – Which is more offensive powerhouse, but weak defense. ex. Kerrigan
Warrior – Melee Slugger, more defensive ex. Diablo
Support – Abilities that support the team more than others. ex. Malfurion.
Specialist – More specialized in there talents to really fill in the blanks of a team. ex. Gazlowe
Though I haven’t played with most of the Heroes, I only played with Tyreal and Jim Raynor. There talents seem balanced and the game so far is fun. I am looking forward to playing as Arthas, one of his abilities is calling down Sindrogosa. Some of the heroes just seem like an odd selection like Abathur, but as a specialist I can see him helping a team out. I look forward as they release new and different heroes.
