TehAcidBaron Hey, I’m a longtime LoL player but I quickly realized roaming was much more valuable here than in LoL. as will any haf-decent lol player. Its the bronze 5-ers and the platinums you haver to watch out for.

Boy if you thought the lack of a decent MMR made QM mode bad before you’re in for a shocker right now!
If you aren’t patient enough just do your dailes in coop or stick to league.

Since the MMR will pair you as an experienced player with a bunch of newcommers. It is easy to spot LOL players though, the type that think their lane is their only place they should be all game :)

ArchDevi cures I tried like every moba to get into it and in the end still don’t like its. Hots is probably the only one I can stand

I’d be all over this game if it played like SMITE with the camera and controls, but alas……..

its a real blizzard job again – they streamlined, got rid of every unnecessary feature, every one will cry “dumbed down” and everyone will play it. i hate mobas – i really like hots.

Polyanna Denice J Cook Except it’s not really like TF2 at all. Besides it being a class base game, it honestly has more in common with Monday Night Combat then it does TF2.

mmonerd It’s Blizzard. It’ll be popular because of the developers name, not on how ‘good’ it is.
