I used to play DOTA2 – briefly. Maybe 3 months we played it with some friends so HoTS is not unfamiliar territory to me and I did download when it came out with the intention of playing but no one else I knows plays. Like Overwatch – all my friends are WoW players first so it makes it hard but even aside from that – I don’t generally have the time to play as much as I would love to.
But I managed to convince Lominari to help me out with this one yesterday – it took us 3 hours to complete the 15 matches. We did the first 8 or so with beginner level AI, and the rest with the recruit level (which was a little more challenging). I thought I was taking screenshots during the game but turns out I didn’t, so you guys are lucky you get a post filled with Blizzard pictures instead!
I played Jaina to start with as we didn’t really have many options available and I didn’t want to play a healer.
Lominari played Muradin the entire time:
After the 4th match I started switching between Jaina and Anub’arak:
I really enjoyed it, the maps were great and had different requirements with altars, temples, curses etc. It was a lot of fun. I would possibly play more if I had others who were keen, however I think I would prefer to play Overwatch if given the choice between the two. Although, you could potentially create the same group of 5 players for both games as casual people and just have a bit of fun switching what you played each week. (That would be my ideal situation).
In the end we got close to a couple of losses however we triumphed and we won all 15 games and successfully got our awesome mount in WoW!
And you get this lovely little package delivered to your collection tab. Am I the only one who misses the mounts and pets being delivered to your mailbox with a little note expressing different sentiments? I know it was painful setting up new toons and spending 20 minutes at a post box but it felt that little bit more personal. You just can’t have it both ways I guess?
When you hit the spacebar, flames come out the side – as a fire mage, this gets me excited because it matches my transmog and style.
The event ends on the 13th March so if you want to get it done, I would suggest you get cracking. 3 hours was constant play for us and some experience with the type of game play needed. I would be very happy to jump into groups if needed – just yell out 🙂
