Speculation time kids. My bet would be a Dota style game. Odds are we will have the announcement of the game at Blizzcon in November.

Do I get a prize?

On a serious note I hope that is just a crappy teaser vid rather than an indication of the art direction for the game!
Spoon
Yeah if the art looks anything like that it will be awful. LoL is cartoony and looks like shit, that's one of the reasons Dota2 is so good, it's actually nice to look at.

I feel like it'll be pretty hard for Blizzard to not fuck this up.

@BlizzardHQ: Challenge accepted.


They could easily match the 100 heroes Dota has. I'd like to see some lesser heroes from the WoW universe like the Murloc that patrols westfall lighthouse and rattlegore from scholo.

Do you mean Old Murk-Eye, or the patrolling rare Slark ?


Murkeye for sure; his poison killed me many times across my toons. Slark is a chump.

I can't see how there's a market for 4 major MOBAS (Dota2, LoL, HoN, HotS). People argue that there are plenty of FPS' etc, but MOBAS are different as there is effectively one gameplay style, one map and pretty much the same game mechanics. Unless there is something substantially different (maps, game modes etc) then this might be a bridge too far for Blizz.

As an avid Dota 2 player and formerly an avid HoN player I think you'll find that you just don't play both games simultaneously, it's either one or the other and unless there is a seriously interesting hook I probably wouldn't bother.

Fair points, blizzard really are late to the game and maybe have even missed their chance at being able to contend with the market leaders LoL and DOTA2.

They have a guaranteed player base that will try it however and it just means their initial execution needs to be flawless. Something they seem to have lost their ability to do lately.
