    Rock, Paper, Heroes (of the Storm)

    I don't want to play alone anymore, so any other RPS fellows in the technical alpha? Closed beta starts in January 13th, but I was wondering if anyone else was in yet.

    My battle.net id is Skyturnedred#2874 if you would like team up.

    Hey dude. I got in the other day and am still getting to grips with it and playing rather sporadically, but feel free to add me: Njabbskolt#2568

    I'd love to get in and stomp around with some Diablo characters.

    I love Dota 2 but a shorter match/less hardcore game would be fun.

    Yeh I currently play Dota2 when I'm feeling like a good sit down and play team game and some friends are online, when I'm flying solo and just want a 15-20 min match I use LoL's dominion mode but this looks like it'd fill that niche for me quite tidily.

    It's a bit annoying really, I've been in every other Blizzard beta very early on but the one I am really hyped about (this) I don't get in lol. DOH

    Well, it's still called 'technical alpha' and the closed beta starts in January.

    I've played it quite a bit, and I don't really see myself going back to LoL or Dota2. I much prefer the casual nature of Heroes, and the emphasis on completing objectives instead of farming lanes.

    I got in lately, but the whole Gold cost still feels really really high for me on the heroes (not to mention locking talents to out-of-battle hero level feels stupid as fuck as on some of them i'd never ever pick the 2 default ones).

    Still, can see playing it with other people at times as it's guaranteed shorter games. If i have to be out and about in an hour i never start a dota match as murphy says it'll go to 80 minutes with all supports 5 slotted as well <.<

    Usually the daily quests give you 200-300 gold, but I just got a quest for 800 gold (play 8 games in any mode). With an assumed 50% win rate in versus that's 960 gold. So in general, I find it pretty easy to get the cheaper heroes, but saving up for the 10k and now the new 15k heroes seems like it could take months after you stop getting 2000 gold every few levels early on.

    I think the locked talents are there mostly so people would play new heroes in co-op mode first, to learn the champs while unlocking the advanced talents. Heck, I think it should be mandatory to get at least lvl 2 before being allowed to versus mode on any champ. It reduces the amount of "lol first time" you see in versus mode, that too often just goes badly for everyone.

    Well jumped straight in last night (yep I got in :D YAY)... Went well.

    I'm lvl 4 after a few games, Tassadar and Nova are insane, wasn't a fan of ETC (needs your team to know what the hells going on or you just end up sliding to your death).

    If anyone wants a game hit me up, I'll be playing a fair amount, gotta unlock me some stitches :D

    The 15k should be temporary, as in new hero comes out and is 15k and then drops to 10k a while later (Same as LoL system).

    Gold does seem reasonable at start to get few heroes due to the 500 for getting a hero to lvl5 (which is why i've ran free rotation heroes for those daily quests to get that lvl 5 at same time).

    Still, after the level up bonuses it's quite some games needed to get heroes (and unfortunately the ones i'm most interested in aren't the cheap ones).

    I bought Nova for 10,000 a while back and it turns out I didn't really like her that much after all. Should've gotten Nazeebo instead, that guy is fun.

    I have a lot of heroes sitting at lvl 4, so I'm hoping to get a nice boost of gold as they come into rotation. Saving gold is a constant struggle of "oh, i have 4k, I could get this and that... or should I keep saving??? aaaargh, choices!" for me.

    Not bought anyone that I really regretted yet, but itīs bound to happen. Started off being all frugal, but lately Iīve just spent my gold on heroes that seemed like they would be fun. The gold gain definitely feels a bit slow though.

    I've only bought Sgt. Hammer, kinda like her, got another 6k stashed.
    Thinking of buying a few cheaper heroes in a way i'd got 1 of each style.
    I really liked Muradin and Zeratul (might still buy Valla instead of Zeratul as she's cheap.).
    I'd likewise want Brightwing but it's 10k so maybe Tassadar&/Tyrande.

    Really like quite a few Specialists so i'll then probably focus more on those (at least at this time i like 'em).

    You guys still enjoying the game? Started playing Tassadar recently and really enjoying his kit, even though placing the force wall correctly can be a pain in the ass sometimes. Also saw someone repeatedly feed the bots in coop last night, I don't even...

    I still log on, maybe not daily but still quite often and at least do dailies (though i'm feeling my slightly less and less motivated as playing this alone ain't the greatest).

    Yeah I agree, been playing it more sporadically myself. Be interesting to see the how the influx of Beta players will affect it. We should try doing a stack one of these days.

    Haven't found time to play that much lately, but will probably start playing more soon.

    Teaming up would be great, since it's too easy to get stuck in a team with a bad team composition when the game decides three support characters in one team is a great idea. Choosing heroes as a team (aka draft) is a feature that should've been in the game since day one. Think it may be coming in the next patch, which is great.

    Yeah, I've had a few games with no warrior on my team, so everyone just melted in teamfights. Draft is coming but think it's only for ranked (which you need to be level 30 and own 10 heroes for), which is pretty stupid imo.

    I actually like quite a few good pushers, but it's a bit bad to make for 1 hard pusher as if other lanes don't do pressure as well i'll just draw 3 enemies to come kill me.
