Heroes of the Storm

If you understand the difference between a top-laner and a jungler, this might be the place for you.

Well, the freebie hero they're currently giving away has been good. Got Tyrande on my alt account because I was planning to from the start so that's 4k gold I can put towards something else.

And got Thrall on my main as he was one of the heroes on my "to get" list.

Had to think carefully first and decided not to get Anub'arak since I haven't decided which account I want him on... prob my main. We'll see.

Finally got the the new Starcraft map on one of my games and it does not disappoint. It's based around the Zerg rush concept. You basically fight over control of two control nodes. When you have control of both, a pen will fill up with zerg... when released... you get a zerg rush to help you push into the enemy base. Quite fun and it's only two lanes too which are my fav types of maps.

As somehow managed to do the 'collect 12 xel'naga artifacts in a single game' thing solo and now have a 24hr stimpack to use. Should probably put it to good use tomorrow night and level up Auriel to lvl5 and get another 500g.

Pretty cool mount for Season 2 of HOTS. Just need to either get a Plantinum solo placement or any tier team placement.

According to this:

http://heroesofthestorm.gamepedia.com/Hero_Prices

Azomdan and Gazlowe will be down to 2000 gold in two days' time. Oh yeah! More bang per buck!

Holy crap!

Based on that link above, Diablo will be dropping to 2k gold too soon but they're increasing the gold cost of Malfurion to 4k gold from 2k.

EDIT: Not Malfurion now, confirmed to be Muradin who's getting his cost bumped up. Makes sense since is arguably the best warrior in the game.

The starter bundle in the online shop will still be AU$4.99... they're increasing the discount to keep the price the same.

Hmmm, new game mode coming...



So they're putting PvP in this game but not Diablo 3 still.

New hero looks interesting:



But the game has way too many assassins already. Wish they'd pump out more supports and specialists.

There's a Nexus Challenger and Nexus Conqueror bundle on the in game shop with huge discounts.

The Challenger bundle shows up for $1.76 for me (but I own 5 of the 8 heroes). Still, that's a small cost for 3 heores. Looks like all the 2000 gold heroes in the Challenger pack.

Conqueror bundle has a mixture of different cost heroes... of all the 10k heroes they include, it's Abathur. That one shows as $15.65 for me and there's 8 of 10 heroes I don't have. Most are pretty decent int he current state of the game.

Both packs come with stimpacks.

I'll probably purchase these packs and redirect my 100k gold towards something else.

Yeah, I got Kerrigan but not any of the others so I'm keen to do this.

I wonder if the Nexus Challenge can be done vs AI with AI team mates? Load times are better there and smashing through 30 games can be reduced to 6min games. 3hrs instead of 10hrs - lol

"Your challenge, should you choose to accept, is to party up with one or more of your friends and play at least 15 Heroes of the Storm games in Co-op vs. AI, Quick Match, Unranked Draft, or Ranked modes between November 15 and January 4." :) (or 30 games for more)

LOL. Yeah, I suppose if we have more faith in the AI (say crank it up to the highest level) we could just run circles around the core and let the enemy smash through. Can't go afk though... the game kicks you after being away for like 1min or something... people were doing just that with their daily quests... start up a game, walk away to do something productive, come back to exit end game screen, repeat.

Now I've done it. I've tried running my alt account and main in the same HOTS game and here's what I've found:

1. if your friend drops out of the game, and you finish it, that game still counts towards your Nexus Challenge games.
2. there is a AFK timer that kicks an account from the game (which I knew before hand)... if you run a loop timer such as this:

http://www.online-stopwatch.com/loop-countdown/

on a 20sec loop or so and switch between moving both characters, you can keep both in game. But most of you will have one main HOTS account only so if you have a crappy laptop, you could start up an alt battle.net account, start up your game with the alt account as your friend, and just let it drop out of game when the AFK timer kicks in. You main will still benefit.

Oh and use kharis' recruit a friend link to get Raynor and Sylvanas... I've had a glut of people who have used mine get to rank 10 today so I got that vulture mount. Don't need anymore more.

EDIT: Didn't post the above to be anti-social... but figured I'd provide a work around the need to play with friends if you don't have any on at the time. Playing with more friends always good as it grants more bonus xp! ;-)

Tonight Dad's had to head out to run some errands so I've had to keep mum company for a bit to make sure she's alright.

Sod it - 30 games in AI shouldn't take too much, and yes I have most of the heroes, but yeah, not all of them ;). Linx#1748. Usually free either briefly around 6pm/later than 9pm AWST.

Hit 15 games with two accounts now and unlocked Zarya... man, playing two characters at the same time is hard sometimes... still faster than doing each account separately.

Was just looking at a vid on how all the OW players are rushing through to get their Genji skin... seems everyone is rushing 1 land as a group and trying to finish each match in 5min. And those who link their console accounts to b.net also unlock the Genji skin there too!

Added you onto one of my alts as well mate... though we might run into the usual challenges with east and west coast time differences. It'll be late evening here when you get on so we might only get 1hr or so (assuming I'm still gaming at 11pm). I wonder if Meare's doing this? He's in WA I think.

Yeah, that's what I've been using to round off the team.

Lots of OW players jumping in to get their skin... most are noobs though who have no idea how HOTS works, what objectives are, or what heroes to choose! And there I was with my two accounts steam rolling through the lane whilst all these noobs were doing things the hard way - lol

All accounts have the heroes unlocked now. I'm still gonna play a bit more though to reap gold on one of the alt accounts.

You guys will see me on my main account and the alt one will be logged in on my laptop. Gotten use to playing two accounts at the same time. It's like this MOBA is one step towards becoming an RTS - lol

Its what midnight/1am in the states - General chat in HotS about now is approaching a bit NSFW.
