Default Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard All-Stars)


Updated!

_________________________________________________

A thread about everything Blizzard DotALoL related!

Discuss about everything related to Blizzard DotALoL (hero models, skills, terain, items, etc.) and feel free to speculate and post things you think would be good if they get implemented in Blizzard DotALoL and also what would you personally like to see in that game.

Also, feel free to provide any info you can about the game!

Here are 4 videos about it I found:






Here's also a link to SC(2) Wiki with some info about it.
Here are some hero models with both good and evil look.
Pics of shops: 1 & 2
Here is an article about Blizzard DotA.
It contains some info which may explain why Blizzard didn't hire IceFrog for the job!

Here is my post on this thread with my review of the Blizzard DotA in it's current state.

I wonder is there any more info about it since it looks even better than DotA(2) in some aspects, and I wonder which one will end up being a better game!

If it's made from Blizzard, then there are all reasons to compare it to Dota 2.

Valve and Blizzard make great games, so this could - and will be - a hard challenge for Dota 2, especially it's one worthy opponent to Dota 2.

So for those who don't like Dota 2, and got StarCraft 2, could be satisfied from a other game, instead of Valves Dota 2.

Yo, Blizzard Dota, I'm very happy for you, Im'ma let you finish...but Valve has one of the best DotA creators of all time !


Now for the serious part: Blizzard Dota won't be succesful because there can be only one Dota, and that is our Dota. Unless Blizzard makes a 1:1 replica of WC3 DotA in terms of heroes, abilities, items, map and everything, it willbe another DotA clone and will fail just like HoN and LoL.

Blizzard DotA will be a fun game like the original DotA was.

Valve DotA will be a competitive game like the current DotA is.

Aeon of Strife is still the only game in the DotA genre to have that epic feel, to the point of even making it fun to play single-player (as in vs creeps alone, not vs bots).

League of Legends is a non-serious game, yet it fails to capture the fun of Eul's DotA or what Blizzard DotA will probably turn out to be.

HoN is just a crappy copy of DotA with worse balancing that tries to be tryhard but fails.

AoS > DotA/Dota2 > Blizzard DotA > LoL > HoN

True, but Blizzard is a company of many experiened workers.
So it's a balanced "fight".

In the end, when both games are released, reviews, tests, and so on will truly tell which of those both is the better game.

Blizzard has a whole team of experienced game developers which is not something that can be ignored.
Valve and IceFrog will have to sweat blood if they wish to surpass Blizzard DotA.

Blizzard is a big boy and competing with him is to step in a whole new league.
Even if they don't copy WC3 DotA, they still could make something awesome as hell.

For starters, I simply love WH40K feeling that it has and whole chess theme.

Blizz Dota is just a SC2 map, nobody wants to review maps as much as whole games.

No it's not, it's a StarCraft II map, alongside Aiur Chef and Bejeweled. It's supposed to be released alongside Heart of the Swarm.

The only reason I cant wait for Dota 2 is that for once there are no enigne limitations and everythings codable (and not full of bugs and work-arounds like the current version).

I honestly don't see the point of going back to the shit of having to play with a system that is clearly not made to handle the game.

It isn't a low blow. There are lots of Dota maps in Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2. They just wanted to make one for themselves.

Too bad the Stacraft 2 custom maps (Bnet 2.0) system is pretty bad.

Default Re: Blizzard DotA

blizzard is making another dota-based game, nothing more. Let's remember that dota is already considered a game genre now, so blizzard isn't making any low blows or something. I believe it will be nothing like HoN or LoL or anything. Blizzard is one hell of a game company, Blizzard Dota will be original and i expect a lot from it.

I also don't think they are doing this to compete with the original dota.

EDIT: I found one hole with this post. Some might give me for

Blizzard already stated they want to make the game more accessible and easier to get into. I believe it will be more of a competitor to LoL than to Dota2.

ps: blizzard only went downhill in the last years, specially after they sold out to activision and Kotick. Still, I bet they could make a casual game more fun and with more appeal to the masses than LoL has.

And why would you think Acti-Blizzard would waste that amount of money? Don't you know that unlike valve, Acti-Blizzard is hungry hungry for revenues?

Don't put your own words in their mouth.

Blizzard has never been negative about Dota.

Them making Starcraft Dota is perfectly plausible and reasonable, considering they've stated their stance in the past: Dota is community asset, and does not belong to any one company.

Default Re: Blizzard DotA

One thing that blizzard didnt realise is the platform that they will release it: Starcraft2. Why?

SC2 is a highly competitive game, most people play it for the normal game and not the custom maps, and by the nature of the game most of the community are already so much into the core game, since its hard as hell to master and people want to cling to their acquired skills in the core game. Most of them wont bother with Blizz Dota or any other custom map for that matter.

Plus its highly known that most of the SC2 playerbase has a very high distaste for the Dota Genre, because it doesnt have all that leet skills that SC2 require, macro, microwars, economy, structure building, etc... so its already a bad place to promote anything dota-related, the repulse against it is big in there.


Its certain that some will play, but it will be just a side "fun map", it wont dominate the lists like DOTA did on Warcraft 3. So I think its quite naive to think that it will have a big impact as a stand-alone game like DOTA 2. It will a fun little custom map and only that, also, again, it is in the wrong playerbase.

AoS might be the granddaddy of dota but it's way different than DotA. Since blizzard will try to emulate DotA, I think DotA is quite appropriate.

Default Re: Blizzard DotA

SC2 is indeed much harder to manage, but thats not the point, the game itself is highly different from DOTA, there arent even heroes in the normal mp games, at least in Warcraft 3 you could feel at home with DOTA because the mechanics from WC3 were similar, except with different items and heroes.


Now SC2 is a completely different beast, as much as their powerful editor supports it, most of the playerbase wont feel good on it. In their forums they always show a huge disgust for Dota and even WC3 for that matter, and that is because of the hero mechanics. The SC2 userbase just isnt a territory made for DOTA, as fun as their little custom map will be, it will be like advertising an action FPS minigame inside an RTS game, it makes no sense.
