The game formerly known as Blizzard DOTA and Blizzard All-Stars has yet another new name: Heroes of the Storm.

More than just the name has changed, with Blizzard telling fans to "set aside whatever you think you knew about Blizzard All-Stars." Which, let's be honest here, isn't a lot. More will be revealed at this year's BlizzCon, starting on November 8th.

      What the hell is this? I don't understand. DOTA for babies?

      I guess I don't know my history here. Wasn't DOTA originally a fan-made mod of Warcraft 3 or something? Did Blizzard ever actually own the name DOTA? I thought Valve bought it or something... I'm confused.

      Really strange how naming works these days with these types of games. Well LOL, HON, WOW is gone, looks like HOTS is available... okay guys up with a name from it.

        Except that they just used HOTS for Heart of the Swarm (SC2). I guess they really liked it and wanted to use it again.

      That trailer is so unlike anything Blizzard normally uses. Bit confusing

        I'd say it's exactly what Blizzard usually does, only turned up to full volume.

        Wow! Could that be... possibly.... because it's not made by Blizzard? NO, CANT BE! IT ONLY SAYS "Carbot Animations" when you start it.

          Wow, maybe I did notice that, but still thought it was unblizzardy to go with that style for an announcement?

      The logo looks like it'd be for a game you'd find in a trading card shop

      It's official heroes of the Storm will have three characters at launch.


      A joke obviously, for actual news we still must wait for Blizzcon.
