If you haven't played Heroes of the Storm yet, here are some good reasons why you definitely should give it a go.
1. The Company Behind It
Blizzard delivers really quality games. World of Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch... The company has been in the gaming industry for years and knows how to develop great game titles.
2. New to MOBA
If you're new to the MOBA genre, Heroes of the Storm is great to get you started. Some call it MOBA for noobs, since the game is simplified and casual-friendly.
3. Hero Diversity
The game has an insane Hero diversity. There are Heroes with very unique playstyle such as the Lost Vikings where you control three separate units at once whereas every unit can be in a different lane, doing various stuff on the field of battle. Then we have Abathur, who doesn't directly get involved in fighting.
4. Game Length
An average Heroes of the Storm game takes anywhere between 20 - 30 minutes. Some may be way shorter. This is exactly why I love the game. I don't really like spending two and a half hours playing a single game. I don't have time for that. I prefer games that are quick and fun at the same time and it's what Heroes of the Storm delivers. Thus, if you're looking for fast games & fun without losing too much of your precious time, this is one of the crucial reasons to consider.
5. Talent System
Another reason why I love the game are talents and talent diversity. There is no in-game shop, no need to buy and build items, it just WORKS. Blizzard has borrowed this concept from Warcraft basically. You reach a certain level and the talents magically appear; you pick one and that's it. No need to worry about item building and other tedious stuff.
6. Map Diversity
None of the MOBAs I've played so far offers such a great map diversity. Most MOBAs revolve around a big one map, which is dull and boring. Heroes of the Storm offers 9 maps. Each map has unique objectives, so you won't get bored to death.
7. Shared XP
All experience is shared between the whole team. All Heroes gain XP together as a group, there is no separate leveling and it doesn't matter whether you last hit the mob. I love it, because when you get a bad player in your team in DOTA, it's mostly a loss, he's at low level, doesn't know how to craft items and this is exactly what HotS eliminates.
8. Frequent Balance Updates & Hero Releases
The game had a balance update problem. It wouldn't release patches for several months, leaving buggy Heroes wreaking havoc. The issue was eliminated by an open letter to Blizzard and the team listened to the community. We now have balance updates every two weeks and Hero releases in between. We get a new Hero released every three weeks.
