Heroes of the Storm
Heroes of the Storm (also known as HotS) is a multiplayer online battle-arena (MOBA) game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. The game features characters from several Blizzard universes, including Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch and StarCraft. Heroes of the Storm was originally named “Blizzard DOTA” and was later changed to “Blizzard All-Stars” before changing to its final title.
Heroes of the Storm revolves around 5-vs.-5 matches in which a player on each team chooses a single character, each having different abilities and Talents. By slaying other characters and AI-controlled opponents, players collect experience, which increases their character’s power and grants them access to new Talents. The objective of the match is to destroy the enemy’s base, which is protected by a Fort. Each Fort contains their own towers, castles, healing fountains and strong gates that prevent enemies from marching through them.
New esports discipline
Heroes of the Storm has enjoyed great success as an esports discipline, with Blizzard hosting annual tournaments at BlizzCon. In 2015, Heroes of the Storm World Championship featured a $500,000 prize pool. And, 2016 marked the start of the new Heroes of the Storm Global Championship Circuit. It is run in a seasonal format, with three seasons — Spring, Summer and Fall — culminating in a Global Championship event. In 2016, the Circuit will be completed by a $1-million tournament, Heroes of the Storm Fall Global Championship.
Heroes of the Storm Betting Tips
Do you want to win your next Heroes of the Storm bet? Try out these tricks:
- Head-to-head record is key - The best predictor of the outcome of a Heroes of the Storm game is the two teams’ head-to-head record!
- Practice bankroll management - Rome wasn’t built in a day, but you can lose your entire bankroll on one unlucky bet. Start betting small (1% to 2% of your bankroll), and then increase your stake size as you win!
- Study the two teams’ rosters - Make sure that each team has its full-strength roster. It can be a smart move to bet against a favorite who is missing a key player!
