Heroes of the Storm is a B2P, 3D Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, There’s no denying the highly-competitive, efficient Moba experiences that are DOTA 2 and League of Legends. The two titans have defined the genre and it’s hard to imagine a game improving on their model.
Blizzard, never one to back down from a challenge, throws its massive hat into the ring with Heroes of the Storm and attempts to carve out a piece of the eSports market for itself. Despite the initial hesitation about Heroes of the Storm being more of the same, the Starcraft and Warcraft creator delivers a game that both honors and enhances the MOBA genre.
For readers who are new to the Moba genre, the concept is pretty simple. Two teams of five players each charge across a map in an attempt to destroy the other team’s base. Most maps have three lanes and players work together to fight NPC minions and the other team to level up and reach the core. Matches are fast-paced and usually last 15-30 minutes.
