Heroes of the Storm launches June 2nd

On May 19th, Heroes of the Storm goes into open beta testing, allowing everyone in the world to download and play the Blizzard crossover MOBA with no further restrictions. On June 2nd, the game goes live, which means that everyone can download and play the MOBA… but, you know, for real this time? The distinction is a bit thinner.

If you’re already playing in the beta, you don’t need to worry about your progress any longer, as there will be no more server wipes between now and the official launch. You can check out the official launch date announcement trailer just below.

Well a lot of it is just making a moba cause everyone does it i believe, they do have a good game on their hands but it’s missing something in my opinion for competitive play. Perhaps that’s because they never really looked at it becoming a serious e-sports game?  What would be odd but not impossible.
I was more thinking of it opening up the slot for a new game to be tested by testers, i do think the team shares a QA department in that regard but beyond that, has blizzard ever had two games in beta at once? I can’t remember that being the case but i could be wrong. 

Personally being the TF2 fan, i’m more interested in how overwatch will play out and think there’s more buzz around such a shooter game, rather then “yet another moba”.

TehAcidBaron Sorenthaz MikedotFoster With HotS in particular I get the vibe that not everyone at Blizz is stoked on it and they really just want to get it done. Overwatch probably has its own team, though I know some of the Titan folks left or were moved to other things.

Reason i can think of is that they want to start testing their next project, overwatch.

MikedotFoster  Yeah, I don’t really understand why Blizzard wants to suddenly rush it out the door so soon.  They’re only giving themselves two weeks of open beta testing.  They’ve also been pretty darn quiet for the past month or so about any patch info.

It just seems way out of character considering how long they take with other games and there are going to be a ton of issues unless they magically fix everything in the next  7 weeks.

Sorenthaz I agree with a lot of this. HotS feels really unpolished to me. It has some really cool ideas but it seems a little phoned in.

PurpleCopper  They also need some Rock n’ Roll Racing mounts if they don’t turn the characters in that game into playable heroes (which would be interesting to see – they could honestly pull like 14 different heroes (and for shits/giggles they could add Olaf in despite him being part of the Lost Vikings, as he was a secret character)  out of the game if they were creative enough with it all).

playerxx  It starts off pretty generous but then steadily grows stretched out.  By the time you hit level 40 the gold gain rate will slow down significantly.

TehAcidBaron Sythalin  Especially since you have to hope that what essentially boils down to RNG gave you a good team comp.
