Due to fan outcry, Blizzard is giving more rewards for Heroes of the Storm 2.0

One of the first things that came up (after Master Skins) in the Heroes of the Storm community after the unveiling of the 2.0 update was -- what's up with all of the progress we've made so far? Blizzard initially had hoped to assuage vetera...   read

Galio's League of Legends rework turns him into a badass

Probius is another slam dunk character for Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm is known for weird characters. It has Abathur, a hero that touts a playstyle not typically found in the MOBA genre, among other oddballs that bend the rules in interesting ways. While the builder concept isn't really new...   read

A better look at Heroes of the Storm's Pylon-warping Probius

If a worker unit can end up becoming a fleshed-out character for Heroes of the Storm, I have to wonder what other weird paths Blizzard might one day take the roster down. Probius, "the bravest of the probes," has that oddball appeal. But w...   read

How does Lucio's Overwatch kit transfer to Heroes of the Storm?

It's my dream to one day see the entire cast of Overwatch present in Heroes of the Storm. Don't get me wrong, there needs to be a lot more love sooner than later for franchises like Diablo (I'm looking at you Mephisto) and Starcra...   read

It's time Heroes of the Storm took another look at Brawls

Heroes of the Storm's "Brawls" were a good idea when they were originally pitched months ago. Providing something akin to what League of Legends had with Dominion (a now defunct arena-type game), or better yet, Blizzard's own "Brawls" ...   read

Heroes of the Storm is getting yet another assassin in Valeera

The Heroes of the Storm team sure does love its Warcraft characters and the assassin role. Thankfully, so do I! (To a certain extent, anyway.) The latest combatant, Valeera Sanguinar, checks both boxes. After a round of teasing over the pa...   read

Seeing how much Heroes of the Storm has grown this year is crazy

I've been playing most of the major MOBAs since launch, and one of my favorite things about them is seeing how they grow over time. Although people like to dump on the genre wholesale, part of what I love about the genre is that they persis...   read
