Heroes of the Storm – NOOB League Adventures Episode #0 (Closed Beta Gameplay)

HotS - Noob 0

In this preliminary episode of HotS NOOB League Adventures (or HotS NOOB for short) I show off just exactly how bad I am at the game before becoming trained by my team of elite Sensei (先生) and push through later episodes while also speaking on a couple of known issues with the Closed Beta of Heroes of the Storm. Namely, the ability for players to Ping each other way too often and inability for anybody to adjust the volume on it. In my personal opinion, the Ping Needs A Mute Button or at least an independent volume slider. A quick look at the Blizzard forums shows I’m not the only one who thinks so, and I go into detail talking about both sides of the argument and where I think Blizzard can find a nice middle ground.

There’s also the issue of getting locked into the wrong region if you’re not careful entering those pesky Beta Keys, so you might want to check out that PSA delivered in this video by yours truly in which I explain how it happened to me and why I now have two accounts and had to start all over again from scratch. Tough adventures for a NOOB even from the starting point, but hey – challenges don’t make or break you if you use them to become stronger. More NOOB League coming soon!!!

Heroes of the Storm Beta Access w/ Founder’s Pack [HD 1080P Footage Inside!]

Heroes_Of_The_Storm_138203755237651

In case you haven’t heard, Heroes of the Storm is a game that Blizzard has been showing us at press events for some time now as well as getting players into during a gradually growing Beta which is now available for customers of the Founder’s Back released by Blizzard Entertainment on their market place and gaming community Battle.net . The feel of the game is something like Starcraft RTS elements meshed with Blizzard’s take on the MOBA genre. The gameplay thus far looks fluid, but a final build isn’t in players hands – so we’re still keeping a skeptic eye about how good that gameplay really is.

Take a look at the Gameplay Footage for yourself, with a listing of where to get the Founder’s Pack, what’s in it, and the animated trailer for it below in Full 1080P High Definition.

Heroes of the Storm Founder’s Pack Available Now at Battle.net $39.99

  • Beta Access
  • 2500 In-Game Gold
  • 3 Heroes
  • 3 Skins
