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.

    Don't do it F2P please. Do it cheap or atleast make it available for who have one blizzard game. But not free.

    Maybe Blizzard is able to do what riot and valve couldn't. Pull me into a moba game. Only the fact that I can maybe play a zerathul vs arthas makes me so god damn horny. But we will see when there is more info. But Carbot delivers and makes me hyped for it already

    Well, now we know what Heroes of the Storm is, even more expansion mystery!

    Looking forward to hearing more of this. Never been a fan of MOBA games cuz of a fear for the community and all the stuff you'd have to learn. Gonna be nice to see if this can pull me into the MOBA gaming, like Hearthstone got me into CCG's.

    I wish it wasn't a moba, I think a game similar to super smash bros would have been awesome. I will definitely try it out though, I have always loved a lot of the blizzard characters. I hope there is a lost vikings character where you play as all 3 at the same time haha!

    Best news all week! I've been eagerly awaiting Blizzard DotA for over 4 years now!!
    Can't wait to see what Blizzard brings to the Moba scene, DotA 2 is fun but nothing comes close to the lore attached to Blizzard characters.

    I know that the video may not be how the game is going to look, but that looks very, very childish. Is Blizzard undermining its games in order to attract a younger audience?

    Who was the guy saying "You're JUST A HATER IN DENIAL if you think Heroes of the Storm ISN'T the next WoW expansion!!"


    Yeah...

    They would probably have to make it F2P if they want any hope of challenging Valve and Riot Games. That was one of the reasons why SC2 shrunk as an e-sport, due to needing to pay for it and attach it to a battle.net account.

    It's a fan-made video.

    its a game where characters from different universe are shoved together and forced to smack each other.

    if you dont go into it with a silly comic booky cartoony feel to its premise you arent really doing it right.

    ...seriously

    And LoL features characters like Tristana and Lulu and Veigar and Fizz and Amumu... obviously, the only reason they would include champions like these is to try to rope in the seven-year-olds, right?


    A sad day when people on the internet confuse "fun and lighthearted" with "catering solely to children."

    Just gonna say this, if they show us a HD Cinematic on Heroes of the Storm of major characters from each games fighting each other, I might need diapers..

    Imagine Kerrigan vs Illidan vs Malathael

    F2P would be the only way to do a MOBA nowadays with DOTA 2 and League

    IIRC, Heroes of Newerth was originally P2P, but that didn't work out.

    I agree. Blizzard needs to do something different to appeal to non blizzard fans who already have a favorite game like dota or league. I really think the answer is having multiple types of game modes. Moba, arena, tower wars and frenzy would be the best thing ever.

    This is likely F2P. It's the business model for Dota audience.
