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.

I was in the chat room, when everyone was saying "goodbyes" to him even though he officially quit off the screen.
    Yes this is 100% credible right here. You totally didn't make this up.

    You're telling me that a for-profit company is trying to make more money? What? BLASPHEMY! While LoL may have more players Dota 2 is doing quite fine for itself with a solid 6.5 million active players (not including people who are still playing WC3 DotA). It's a more solid title with better production quality, more depth and more diversity within the gameplay. It's proven its longevity while LoL is more of a fad that is poorly balanced and the company (Riot) treats a good portion of its players like shit and handles the game disgustingly badly. Best of all it's made by a respected company (Valve) that has long seen the value in community made content. Valve also has a little something called Steam which has over 50 million active users, more so than LoL.

    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.
    exactly man, I would kill to have Dota 2 with official blizzard characters, but this fat ugly man like Storm Spirit..

    they dont have a choice, really, if they wanna atlast try to compete. dota is completely free to play, LoL somewhat too, HotS cant come up with just a copy of LoL system, as that wouldnt attract LoL players at all, who already invested in their game, nor would it attract dota players tbh. And lets be honest, both dota and LoL are absolutely massive, I dont know exact LoL numbers other than the fact, that its played by much more people than dota, while dota2 has about 7million players and 500k+ concurrent players are the norm, weekends are even bigger (And the fact, that dota2 isnt even launched in china yet). Thats more than WoW had in years (and what whole bnet barely touches in weekend peak), thats how big those two games are and thats what Blizzard wants to compete with.

    This isnt vacated RTS playground, where SC2 had all the room it needed to make a lasting, popular esport (and still failed tbh.) This would be like making an MMORPG that can compete with not one, but TWO WoWs, good luck with that. Its a blizzard game, so obviously, its gonna be solid game and have some foolowing regardless, but its not gonna be a real competition to those two, unless some miracle happens.

    Again - Why should Blizzard launch the trademark name of new franchise with such low quality sloppy work ? Answer is pretty obvious.

    Troll for sure.....

    What I said, got under this dude's skin so much, that he had to make another account to comment. LMAO.

    Nerd.

    To actually reply. Sorry, your behind the 8 ball, and had no actual clue what went down. Yeah, you can claim I don't have a clue, but I was there. Guinsoo had a meeting with Blizzard, once in person and once over the phone, over getting official Blizzard support. At least that's what Pendragon said, I mean FFS. Did they, actually, laugh. Probably not. Though it was just simply a joke to Blizzard, easily dismissed.

    It seems you are a bit of a Valve fanboy. I like DOTA2, I played it everyday. Though, it's not as fluid, it's clunky, blocky, and quite frankly dull. LoL, offers a more fluid game and better color scheme. Which makes LOL more appealing. I will agree, that DOTA2 has more depth and diversity as far as Champion customization. That doesn't make it better a game. That makes it a more complicated game. Combined with the FPS issues, delay issues, and overall shitty quality of the game, it makes for unnecessary complication.

    I wasn't wrong with my assessment of WoW = LOL, in terms; when it launched, how it has broken open the market, the color scheme and fluidity of the play.

    With your current attitude it's no wonder you got banned, from both MMO Champ and LOL. Butthurt much?

    When I first heard about this on TB's Content Patch I might have let out a totally unmanly squeal of self-righteousness to express my Schadenfreude towards all the blizzard fanbois in denial that this title will be anything but the next wow expansion. Looks like my initial hopes were true for once and it is indeed the dota stuff I couldn't care less about.

    I hope the animation is not their art style for this, as that would be kinda cheap for blizzard and only worthy of a browser game.

    Hey guys. I am launching a fansite for Heroes of the Storm. Please check out HeroesForums.com and register if you are as excited for the game as we are!

    This game is going to be complete shit. Bliz can't even balance their classes in WoW, what makes anyone think they can balance champions in a MOBA? lol.

    Angry? No. Slightly annoyed? Yes. Total humored? Absolutely.

    Valve fanboy, had to make an account just to comment about something I said. Which also allows me to draw a couple of conclusions. That they also had to make another email address, got banned from the forums already, and got banned from LoL. I made them so angry over an experience and opinion I have/had. It's hilarity in it's finest hour. I feel honored.

    I feel like Randall from Clerks. When he made fun of LotR so bad, that he made some nerd puke. Now, I get to make you clean it up.

    I posted a video of their first trailer, there you can see the actual graphics and a little bit of the gameplay, i will post it again for you:

    Note: The name is Blizzard Dota, cause it was the first video released before having problem with the name

    And in the end, they are still in the top..., so why don't give them a chance?
