Ahh Blizzard cinematics. How I missed you.

I recognized every hero in the gameplay trailer immediately and they were using moves / weapons etc directly related to their original encounters so that's pretty cool.

Shame I hate MOBAs and have little faith in Blizzard after D3 / MoP.

Don't forget to check out the new WoW tailor. Personally I don't find interest in the expansions anymore, however as you said. Blizzard cinematics.

If there's one thing Blizz can do well, it's cinematics. Probably didn't need the metal soundtrack, as much as it pains me to say it. And they kinda overstretched the female assassin trope with Nova, despite how the character was actually shown in the 2 mins shown in SC2

It makes sense to try and cash in as much as possible from their existing IP. I'm interested to know what characters they're putting in , even though the only blizz games I've played are SC2 and hearthstone.

Whether they're trying to cash in or not, MOBA's = a wtfmassive source of potential players. Add to this the equally as big Blizzard fanbase, much of which may not have even tried MOBA's, and even if they dont do as well as the others, they'll still do very well if they create a good game. I was expecting it to look mediocre, but that gameplay trailer has me wanting to try it out.

They also have a large pool of existing universe characters to draw from.

Seeing as though this is blizzards I'd really like to read the lore behind bringing all the universes together.

And they can pull in awesome characters from Warcraft 3 (heres hoping).

And I get to hear a return of my favourite quotes.

'Ah at last.'

'This is more like it.'

If I am not mistaken didn't they announce or dropped hints about this a couple of years ago?

I'm interested to see if they manage to make some other fun maps/mini games.

And curious to see their pricing plans. It looks like they're trying to hit some sweet spot between LoL & Dota in the aesthetic.

BTW GUYS, NO LAST HITTING IN THE GAME.
They said they wanted to appeal to a fanbase larger than LoL, thus no last hitting.
