It's actually an attempt to draw old players back in via smurfing... which is going to make first play experience (And the entire atrocity of MM) for real newbs a nightmare.

Aside that, hero gating is gone, good.. 5 months to late though!

A friend of mine told me that the game is not even in the top 20 twitch streamed games, it used to be in the top three. Blizzard seriously messed up somewhere. I quit around the time they released that Elf Hunter hero, or shortly afterwards. They had a great chance to wipe the slate clean with their MM and their Hero League ladder reset, but they fucked it up real bad.

Something was off about this game, even though mechanically it was pretty flawless. Blizzard seriously under-estimates their players and doesn't give them enough credit. Limiting group sizes, making it really easy (and relatively painless, there were no permabans) for griefers, and generally majorly fucking up with the matchmaking to allow terrible players into high ranked games, ruined this game.

The biggest thing "off" about this game is imo the complete lack of a proper pre-game randomization of who plays what so that teams can end up perfectly balanced (based on conglomerated statistics)... the only game-mode I'd ever even consider playing. And why is it missing? Because Blizzard wants to sell classes.. absolutely HATE that in F2P games.

This game would have been total win if all chars had been available for everyone and so everyone could have found the character they love most during normal play... but no.. they decided to make this fremium nonsense part of the game.. and so hots is dead for me ;/ Got my HS card deck and didn't even start the game in a month now

i bought a couple nice jackets/coats/sweaters last winter, since we were getting single-digit temperatures every night. i remember thinking "well, may as well wear these out now before the climate is fucked and i can't anymore."

i wasn't being serious, earth. please don't be fucked so soon.

Oh relax. These are always followed up by a La Nina, so it should be penis shrinkingly cold next year. And while it's warmer than historical averages atm, people always seem to think December should be colder and snowier than it normally is too. Wait until we hit Jan/Feb and see what happens.

This year 400m less gas used for heating.. but 555kw more used for climate control..

somehow I feel like this isn't a good trade-off....

Personally, Trump appeals to me more and more. He's got balls, unlike pretty much any other politician in recent memory.

You are confusing balls with populism

"New features include painstakingly recreated graphics by veteran character designer Kazuko Shibuya..."

Did she revert to an earlier stage in her artistic development? The artwork actually looks WORSE than it did over 20 years ago! I was drawing better artwork for RPGMaker95 in the late 90s!

Looks like hq3x upscaling.. or basically the "how to make a SNES game look fucking horrible" algo

Like Diablo? Like Xcom? Have we got a treat for you!

Yeah, if those games had been freemium titles... I can't get invested into f2p titles like these for some reason. Lack of upfront payment means lack of upfront investment. And so.. I'd rather play something else ;p

I'm not a big MOBA fan, but it does seem they want to do it differently by giving the players more freedom with their heroes via 3rd person control. Maybe it will be enough to give them that different feeling and through that a player base.

Example alpha gameplay here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gw9fJGKvcc&lc

edit: and I noticed it was already in the initial post as well. Oh well. Looks different from your usual top-down MOBAs

Thanks for the comment anyway. I didn't read the initial post past "MOBA" and just wanted to read the commments because I enjoy reading complaints for some reason.

That 3rd person addition may actually be a USP that might work.

Did you try Smite?

For something that is apparently a violation of patents amazon certainly doesn't seem to give 2 shits about selling it though.... no injunctions in front of a European court or what?

Strange story and even stranger that this patent was granted to them in the first place. Seems like obvious design.

If they don't know how the hack went down, changing your PW now would do nothing...
Guess I don't agree, cause leaving it the same is worst. I can change it again if necessary.

What if the hack is still ongoing and he changed the PW algos to produce plain-text? ^^

Really you don't think almost a 20 year prison sentence won't act a deterrent for most of these idiotic punks? It's a very serious, very dangerous thing. Even when people aren't injured or killed there's serious psychological trauma. There's damage to the property that has costs. Stigma from the neighbors. On and on it goes.

Mandatory minimums and even death sentences for drug dealers (death when they ordered hits, etc.) had no impact on crime rates. These people never think they'll get caught. Ditto with swatters.

Obviously some jail time is needed, but he'll get out at 30 a hardened criminal, not a functioning member of society.

If he swatted 100+ times he would never have been a functioning human being to begin with -> serious psychological disorder, lack of empathy or simpler.. a sociopath. World would be a better place without them.

think his point was that an article about a cheap phone doesn't talk about how it works as a phone

But then, if you read ars regularly, you know this is how they operate... hipster reviews, not real reviews ,p
