Blizzard All-Stars Becomes Heroes of the Storm
It appears the Heroes of the Storm trademark is going to be used with The Game Formerly Known as "Blizzard All-Stars"! You can find some old screenshots from the last preview on the HoTS Wiki.

    each side represents a blizzard franchise... Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo... look at a close up of the title and you can see each is different

    Anyways, sounds fucking stupid for a name. Blizzard AllStars was a much more keen and clear name. This Heroes of the Storm doesn't ring with a MOBA vibe, sounds like a cheesy flash game.
    'League of Legends' vs 'Heroes of the Storm'. I'd say both sound sufficiently nerdy and can't really see a difference in vibe. Blizzard All-Stars makes me think of Warcraft Baseball or something.

    If Blizzard does a Moba I hope its more like Bloodline Champions and not like LoL. Mid-battle upgrades and RTS ftl, action MOBA arenas ftw! BLC was the best pvp (balance and fun-wise) game in a long time, it just didn't have the voice it needed nor the innovation in updates. That game could have been so much.

    Well, seeing as it all began with custom made maps made in Warcraft 3, it's only fitting and honestly fair, that Blizzard now does the same.

    It's a Thrall looking orc, versus Jim Rayor from Starcraft and a (female) Demon Hunter from Diablo 3.

    So, this confirms The Dark Below as the next xpac? First we thought it was Reaper of Souls, then Heroes of the Storm, it's pretty much TDB now

    I told you so! Heroes of the Storm was never going to be the Expansion, like seriously the name does not fit :/

    finally all those ignorant people got their mouths shut. This was so obvious, it's like wondering if that bar around the corner sells beer.

    If you honestly thought this was the next expansion instead of allstars, good god.

    Still not hyped for another MOBA. Not even from them. And I think Blizzard should've support dota back then.

    It will be f2p, well at least that was the original plan. Guess we'll know for sure in a month or so.

    Well, it gives off a sports vibe. League.. Allstars... it's all about the esport presentation. While, Heroes of the Storm, make sit sound too RPGish, and less about competitive team play.

    While, DOTA is just short for Defensive of the Ancients. You had to play WC3:TFT at it's prime to really understand the name. Now it's just DOTA, because quite frankly, that's exact problem with HOTS, people are just going to call it HOTS. Too close to the red-headed step child, HON, in my opinion.
