Play Heroes of the Storm, earn a free World of Warcraft mount

There’s a neat cross-promotion going on right now between Heroes of the Storm and World of Warcraft. Blizzard is encouraging its fans to give Heroes a try by enticing them with a free WoW mount. If you play 15 matches with friends on your Battle.net list by March 13th, you’ll get a Primal Flamesaber mount in WoW and a Judgment Charger mount and 10-day stimpack in Heroes for your troubles.

In other World of Warcraft news, the PTR just started testing out Patch 7.2’s long-awaited flying, as well as the new Cathedral of the Eternal Night and some reward changes to mythic+ dungeons.

Check out the new Primal Flamesaber mount after the break and see if it’s worth the effort!

It’s a good game. It is however one of the few genres I don’t really enjoy too much, a MOBA. So for me, I’m not surprised they need to figure out ways to pull people in to play. Funny thing is, everyone on my friendlist on Battle.net is either playing Overwarch, WoW or Diablo. So…

They keep on doing this cross brand things for hots. Think it means its not doing well. Tried it a few times and its a meh moba. It looks pretty but its kind of boring. And everything in it too expensive. I unlock all heros in Smite for 30 bucks. Why should I pay same amount for like 3 and two skins? Wish this would just shut down already. The field is crowded enough and doesn’t need another one. Maybe they could re assign the programmers and actually get flying in wow soon.

This “log in by blahblah or play this by blahblah” is what turned me off to SWTOR when it was doing it with their “Play before Dec or you don’t get a stupid Wampa!” Which does everything your other companions do now that there all cookie cutter but it’s cool.

Blizz has been doing this now and I have had it, now lockboxes are coming I warn you. I have had more fun with single player retro Good Old Games this week then hearing some asshole…

“GO GO GO, my wife needs to get the mount for this boss, fuckin go!!”

The negativity here is so disappointing…looked like mmorpg forums for a minute.

If you hate the game that much, then don’t play and don’t get a mount.
Simple.
Don’t ruin it for those of us that actually enjoy the game.

If the article was about dota or lol it would be the same. MOP is mostly a carebear site.

Ok, cool looking mount.
All I need to do is, download and install a game I have no interest in, play a bunch of games that I won’t enjoy, uninstall said dumb game, get mount.
Nope Nope Nope.
I’m sure some people will do this but I have zero interest in MOBAs.

Just like the genji skin it looks cool but good lord is it not worth touching that fun void for it.

So…with all these giveaways and crossovers Blizzard’s always doing, does anyone get the feeling no one is playing HotS? ;)

Their weekend over the net tournaments (not live so small fry) have been drawing 20-30K on twitch. That is roughly 3-5x what they were before the December cross promo.

People are playing it and obviously it is getting more attention than other Blizz games and they have the numbers. I’ve never known Blizz to beat a dead horse with bad money.

For anyone wanting this mount and don’t like mobas, just find a person in chat and do AI games on the easiest setting. All go down one lane and rush the core and you usually finish in 3-6 mins.

Nobody I know has any interest in HotS except when they have these cross game promotions. Mission accomplished, I guess.

I don’t think anyone would blame you, we all like different things.

As someone who has played since alpha though I can say cross promotions like these are very good ways to introduce people, who previously thought they hate MOBAs, to the genre. Sometimes because it is so different to LoL and DoTA2 (which is what most people think of when hearing the word MOBA), and sometimes because they haven’t actually played a MOBA before. Sometimes also because the promotion forces you to play more than one or two games, it usually takes a bit of time to understand and get into the game.

A lot of people are like you and hate it and never come back regardless, but a lot of people love it and stay. The good thing with MOBAs and HotS in particular is that they don’t take much time so it doesn’t have to replace whatever you are already playing, just give you more to choose from depending on what you feel like playing at the moment.

I feel like it really is a win-win with promotions like these. Those of us who play HotS get more people to play with, it introduces a lot of new players to the genre and grows the game, whilst WoW players have a chance of getting a cool mount if they want to. Those who can’t stand playing it can just skip it. I really like Blizzards cross promotions.

Oh, totally. Honestly, I think the best team at Blizzard right now is their marketing team. They put out some of the best quality work, and do so on a very consistent basis.

If I had to choose a team from Blizzard to work on a project of mine, it would be their marketing team, I don’t even care if they have zero development experience : P
