It's not just the skill level either. Sometimes you get randomly stuck with Abathur, Azmodan, Sgt. Hammer, Li Li, and Malfurion against a team that is more balanced, or heavy on hero damage and there's nothing you can do except get destroyed.

Man, the first of the great so-called "WoW killers". There were so many.

AoC, Warhammer Online, Matrix, etc...

Yep, 1-20 in AoC was amazing. After that it was a turd.

Warhammer Online was fantastic...as long as you had a group to play with. So much content that required other people, very little other people to play it with.

I beta tested the Matrix and had no interest in playing it at release. Blah.

The LiLi/Thrall team may have been a mistake in game reporting. My badge currently displays me as a level 50, despite the max being 40. If you're on a Lan with another person, even if you're not in the same game instance, it may tell you that you are in pre/post game info. We fired up HOTS at a Lan recently and got some incredibly weird behavior when NOT actually playing a match. It'd lie about who was using what character, and for which team. Actual in-game was correct.

As for idiot players...well, it's F2P. Best to get as many friends as possible on your team before going in. Especially important to bring a healer, since pickup healers rarely actually heal.

The badge is your ranked game level. 50 is the starting point, and you go down from there the more games you win, just like Hearthstone. (Except Hearthstone starts at 25)

Well, there's many kinds of "helping" in HotS.

One is Blue's kind - He clearly knows Li Li and as people who play Li Li can tell you, soloing is NOT how she is played. She just can't put out enough damage to make it worth while. I've had a 24 kill, 0 death game with her, but I was up the melee warriors butt the whole game.

Then there's the people who have clearly never played the character trying to tell people how to play it. "Why do you keep soloing mercs, Azmodan? I have to keep coming and bailing you out!" Um, no. No you don't. Azmodan excels at soloing mercs. And keeps. In fact, you should stay away from me and provide distraction so I can win the game for us.

And there are the blamers, who can't play the guy they chose, but are telling everyone else that we're losing because YOU SUCK.

And the kill chasers who think that we'll magically win if they kill every last enemy hero over and over. I laugh when we lose with 36 kills vs the enemies 5. It's like CS all over again. Great, you got 12 kills but the terrorists still detonated the bomb and we lost.

And the guy who leaps into the middle of the entire enemy team by himself. Over and over and over. Despite the fact that there's not a single character capable of winning in that situation. But keep trying, I'm sure it will happen for you.

Me? I rarely say anything to anyone. Why even waste my effort? Even helpful hints are usually meant with sarcasm or straight up verbal assaults. Mostly I just keep adding to my ignore list.

The hands don't take up any more screen space than a gun normally would so that doesn't bother me. The constant banter is something I would hope you could turn off. Other than that the issue seems to be the FoV, which looks to be set at 60. Huge no-no for a PC shooter.

Yeah, my biggest concern is that they wills crew the 21:9 monitor owners like they did with Heroes. (And tried to do with D3)

I ran track in high school, so I've known about the mystery holes on sneakers for quite some time. Thumbsup I recently passed the knowledge on to some people at the pizza shop who kept getting blisters. It's one of those things that you think everyone knows, but it's really a secret to everyone.

I'll withhold judgement until I play it, since I love Heroes of the Storm and did not think I would even like it. BUT, the level of dialouge needs to be changed. The character doesn't need to say something every single time he does an attack. Good god that was annoying.

Well now, they certainly snuck a horrific/hilarious skin in there for Stitches.

Also, Billie is already in the game, so that "new mount" is a surprisingly halfass re-texture.

That's Wonder Bille, and he was free as a reward for purchasing something during closed beta. Billie is so people can purchase a cute mount without the added effects the special mount has. The really stupid one is the metallic reskin of the tiger.

I'd lvoe a decent skin of Azmodan. The lame Guldan skin is the only he has currently. Give him a robot SC2 one at least.

Buy both for $5... Get (another) 10% off Witcher 3 for owning the previous two...

Yeah, except I got Witcher 3 for free (like many here) with my GTX 970 purchase.

Things like that are alway going to be an issue at competitive levels of play InBlack. Thrusting 5 people with different strategies and ideas on what is needed to win is always going to end up like this no matter what the game is... Especially in the range of 5 man teams. It's simply easier to both cover for mistakes and overlook them entirely when there are more players per team (i.e. TF2 12v12).

The idea that HOTS is any less of a "competitive" game than others is just smoke being blown by the LOL/DOTA2 crowd.

Pubbies and "solo-queuers" are and always will be the blight of any co-op or team-based gaming community. Staying out of the ranked modes unless you have a full team is most certainly advisable... expecting to have meaningful and competitive matches by drawing teams out of a hat is just mindblowingly naive.

I personally love it when people start telling me how to play my characters, especially when it becomes very apparent they have no experience playing the characters they are telling you how to play. "Don't use Azmodan to attack forts, you noob!" Uh...

Same, Agent. Being free, it was easy to convince my friends to try it out, and now we can usually make a 5-man team any evening of the week. It may be "DOTA for dummies", but i don't want a game where I could easily ruin everything because I wasn't jungling or something right when I should have.

Also, the game has charm to spare, like any Blizz game. The maps are all different themes, there's incidental animations everywhere (do an explosive effect near a shark on blackheart's bay!), and the characters will occasionally have short conversations if they "know" each other.

Yeah, I love those short quips between characters. And the background stuff is pretty amazingly detailed, especially considering I doubt many people sit there and look at it very hard.

I think it was a mistake to not allowing flying mounts in the new expansion. I would come back and play if I wasn't forced to take 10 minute gryphon rides all the time, or trek out of my way to reach a place I could easily fly to. They thought it would keep people in the game, but they thought wrong.

Regardless, 7.1 still makes them king of the hill. I don;t expect to see WoW going anywhere any time soon.

So what do you all recommend Blue pick up? 55" backlit LED LCD?

Pretty happy with my LG 55" LED LCD. IN 3DDDDDDDDDDD! LG has the non-active glasses, just like the theater. Gaming in 3D on a passive TV sucks, but I didn't really ever use the 3D games on my PS3 anyway.

4K or UHD actually looks really nice vs a 1080p display just due to the higher pixel density. You can tell, if you set one side by side. (or go to a store that has them set up like that.) I haven't gotten one yet because I don't NEED it, but I sure do want one.

Edited to say that LG seems to be making better LCD panels than Samsung now. Samsung had been the panel provider for Dell Ultrasharps for over a decade, but they are switching to LG panels now. (My new 34" monitor has an LG panel in it.)

You know, continuing Star Wars makes sense. That series was all about the universe Lucas created. And you can do that with new actors.

Indiana Jones was about, well, Indiana Jones. As played by Harrison Ford. It's done. Let dead dogs lie, don't resurrect them as zombies.

Eh, he just needs to go back to the Raiders title. I would love it if Chris Pratt was another son. Captain Crazy Pants could even make a cameo as the other son, but I don't think he can carry a movie at this point.

Do the Germans sensor Nazi imagery in their films and books too? (Serious question, I really don't know). You would think that a game where you are killing Nazis by the hundreds would get a pass...

It's not illegal, per se, but images, movies, books, games, any media that children can watch has to be censored or it can only be sold to adults. German politicians use this to harass companies into just sanitizing the media so they don't have to deal with any possible legal hassle.

And thus Germany proves that no matter who is in charge, they still fuck it up.
