Isn't this their second or third try at that?

Originally, it was supposed to be a special map for StarCraft 2. 

 

I'm extremely happy they've chosen the standalone version!

 

Hopefully, this way there will be engine improvements in the game and the graphics will be better :)

 

 I've added some videos to the post.

 

Thank you! I had already gone to bed when those were posted on youtube. They are exactly the ones that we were shown at blizzcon earlier :)

Dota

 

It's amazing that two different RPG  sub-genres have emerged from SC/WC3 custom map editor - tower defence and DOTA.

 

I think HoS will enhance the gameplay dynamics on many levels. It won't be just DOTA :)

 

At Blizzcon, they were talking about how the battlegrounds from WOW, their interactive aspect influenced those in HoS.

Each hero offers different strengths and weaknesses depending on their role.
 
ASSASSIN
Assassins like Kerrigan deal tremendous damage and can pick off unsuspecting enemies, but must choose their battles carefully, as they can dish more than they can take.
 
WARRIOR
Warriors such as Diablo can dive right into a melee, soaking up damage and dealing it back.
 
SUPPORT
Support heroes like Malfurion can swing the tide of battle, assisting with healing, buffs, or other abilities to manipulate the battle in the favor of allies.
 
SPECIALIST
Other types include the siege and commander heroes, which are more specialized roles that bring different strengths as you build a team.

 

 

 

I'm super excited about the healing class. I'm a priest in WoW and I've sort of missed healing abilities in D3 where all classes are DPS pretty much and monk's heals are weak.

 

Still, I want to try them all out ASAP :D

Nice. I'm interested in it only because I'm a huge fan of Dota 2. I've put in a lot of hours into it.

Another news bit:

 

Talents will replace items and gold to eliminate useless runs to merchants.
