Heroes of the Storm In Development Spotlight
 


I still play a few matches every weekend. Just when I thought I was out,
they pulled me back in!

It's going to be real interesting to see how Alex's dragon form works out. I think it'll end up like Ragnoros in his tower form and not really end up playing too big a role.

Her healing doesn't seem too out of the box, if you're someone who is already used to playing a health for power or heals character (sort of like Guldan) then it won't be hard to adjust.

Is it just me or does her HotS model seem quite a bit more... Meaty than how she is depicted in WoW?

I dont mind it, but it seems like an unusual design choice since her anthro form resembles a blood elf.

A quick Google search would suggest that people are agreeing with you.

To some extent, I think people aren't taking into account the fact that better graphics and more animations will lead to more naturalistic looking characters.

A part of the reason why many WOW characters were so skinny and had such poor anatomy is because of graphical limitations.

For example, I think anyone would notice the chief offender of making her look chunky in that debut video is the part where she twists her torso toward the camera. But that torso twist is just an unflattering angle on anyone. There are like a handful of "model stances" that models learn purely because they ARE flattering. But as characters move around more, and are rendered in more detail, you are going to see them in more unflattering positions. Anyone with breasts as large as hers is going to look chunky when she twists at the waist.

In my opinion, as long as the costume is the same, I don't really understand why anyone would care.

I was winding down my HOTS time but my mates all got into it all of a sudden... so back down the rabbit hole.

Great game. Only issue is the wait time for matchmaking. Looking forward to this hero
