I was thinking while at work the other day, that I'm looking forward to Blizzard All Stars. And since at first it looked like it was going to be apart of Starcraft 2, it could be really interesting if they incorporated something like it, within world of Warcraft like pet battles. But here is how they can make it different from others.
So first of all this is how I thought Heroes/Champions could work within the game / Rules / Specifications
- You need to be level 10 in order to Que, and when you Que up you choose from your character list of classes you currently have above level 10. (Mandatory tutorial on how MOBA's work for new players)
- Once you are at the screen of characters you have above level 10. you can then pick one ROLE and 4 MOVES, 3 normal moves and one ultimate. ( Diablo 3 style, click and drag from a list )
For example... Shaman.
Enhance = Agility Semi-carry / boarder line hard Carry.
Resto = Support
Elemental = Support Intellect Ganker / Semi Carry
So let's say I picked restoration
Slot 1 Choices. Supportive.
Riptide - Heals for 100/150/205/255, continuing to heal for 10/15/20/25 for the next 5 seconds. and leaves a 10% increased healing buff on the target (45 second CD)
Chain Heal- Instantly heals targeted allied for 200, chaining to the next 3 closest allies for 100. ( 35 second CD )
Healing Rain - Target location has healing rain on it, allies within the circle are healed for 15/20/25/30 HP every half a second for 7 seconds. the more players in it the less it heals. ( 35 second CD )
Healing Wave- Instantly heal the target for 100/150/200/250 and increasing their hp temporarily by 1%/2%/3%/4% for 6 seconds. ( 25 second CD )
Slot 2 Choices Defensive.

Water Shield - Cast water shield on yourself or an allied hero increasing mana regeneration by 150%/200%/250%/300% for 15 seconds. Any damage will ( 55 second CD ) cancel the effect.
Mail Specialization - Increases physical armor by 1% per 10 intellect. As well base mana by 5% ( Passive )
Slot 3 Choices Supportive / Offensive / Defensive.
Earth Elemental - Summons an earth elemental to fight by your side for 25 seconds. 20%/30%/40%/50% of your HP and 44%/66%/88% of your base damage + Intellect as physical attacks. ( 1 Minute CD )

Lighten Bolt - .5 second cast time shoots a ball of lighten at the enemy target for 100/125/150/175 magic damage returning 5% mana. ( 22 second CD )
Slot 4 ULTIMATE
Bloodlust / Heroism - Increases the attack speed,run speed, and cast speed of all allied heroes in 50 yard radius by 20/25/30/35% ( 2 minutes CD )
Healing Tide - Heals all allies in a 30 yard radius for 100 HP a second, for 5/7/9/11 seconds. (1.5 minutes CD)
Life Link Totem - all heroes share a life pool and reduces damage by 10% inside the circle. (1.1 minutes CD)
Reincarnation - When you die you can resurrect with 50% hp and mana where you currently died. Or with 100% hp and mana at your shrine. (2 minutes CD)
NOTE: I do not plan to ever create or balance a game , this was done off ideas within my head it would not be these exact numbers. ( I didn't add mana cost cause games like LoL or the Marvel MOBA are more forgiving with mana opposed to DOTA or HoN) Just imagine a typical mana cost of MOBA's you play
Some other features:
- Ladder ranking with a rating system.
- All US servers Que together, and all EU servers Que together.
- Your player looks similar to the gear you Qued with. so all players are unique looking to an extent.
- Store items can be named around WoW items, Ashbringer, Gorehowl, etc etc...
- Items can be added to in game store, such as taunts, announcers, etc..
So it was just a rough idea, I would play it, I know a few of my friends would. What do you think? Anything you would add? Also sorry for any mistakes this is being written on my lunch at work..
