So, Blizzard (BLIZZARD OF ALL COMPANIES) has a new IP that is not Warcraft, Starcraft or Diablo coming out now. It's a silly competitive shooter, 6 versus 6, and it looks really silly and fun. LOOK AT IT.


I honestly would not be surprised if this game was the decent parts of their Titan project that they felt they couldn't let die and salvaged.

Here is the beta sign-up.

Also I love that its freaking superheroes on top of that. I like how it seems to be also vary in movement between all the characters. Those fast ones that encourage dodging and all that, I can definitely get behind.

Those maps are gorgeous.

Yes they are. I think the maps have even more personality than the characters, if that's even possible.

They made a sniping class look fun. That's new to me. Last time I thought a sniper based class was even interesting was recon back in Bad Company 2 and that was because they got a shit ton of C4 and were able to track with their military balls.

I signed up for the beta right away when I saw this which lead to me finding out I was in the Heroes of the Storm Alpha. Way to alert me Blizzard.

Nuva I was planning on maining the same characters except for Hanzo. Just liked Reaper that much more.

I do wonder if this is going to be F2P like Hearthstone and HoTS or if it will be a retail game like the rest of their games. Getting the odd feeling of F2P.

The cinematic made me wish it was a feature lengthed movie. In fact I might have to say it is Blizzard's best Cinematic trailer.

Reaper looks like a glass cannon. Does the most damage but easy to take out.

Also Blizzard once again making me want them to make a movie, with their CGI trailers.

I'm the opposite. I love the way a lot of these characters look and would love to play it with people, but will probably need a new computer again soon.

I went to sign up for the beta. They want me to use my stupid authenticator. I forgot that thing even existed, I have no idea where it is.

Trying to remove it, they want a government issued id. Really. Wtf. I uploaded a picture of Vega instead and my reason to remove the authenticator is "It's a dumb hunk of plastic."

Because it is. Fucking. This is ridiculous.

I feel like I've known someone who didn't have to go through that mess before. I'm pretty sure you can just call.

I had to go through that. It freaking sucks. I recommend once you gain access to the account you enable mobile security. It makes it so much easier to remove authenticators.

Yeah I'm running into the same authenticator problem, lost it awhile ago and haven't been able to play Starcraft 2 because of it. Might finally make the effort to resolve it, cause I really want in this Beta.

Word of advice about the Blizzard authenticator. If you're gonna use one, make sure it's the mobile app, and make damn sure you either screen cap or write down the restore code when you attach it to your account. That alleviates you of this headache in the future.

That wasn't an option back when I got it, every phone in the family was an old not-smart phone.

After I disassociate the current one I will though, on the off chance I ever go back to WoW. Don't wanna lose my account after all I put into it, even if the chances of me getting really into again are slim.

I've had that kind of issue after my other brother (not Diamond) had his account hacked. Though he didn't have an Authentication, but they needed a legal form of ID and because he was too young, the ID of my mom. Really felt unnecessary.

It's completely unnecessary. Blizzard you're a videogame company not the dmv. You're lucky I even gave you a real Email ffs.

I had this problem with Trion recently and decided, fuck it, I don't really need to play their new game anyway.
