I can't play HoTS for more than 2 rounds, I just feel damn bored playing it. :s13: At least D3 can still hold my interest for 2-3 weeks, HoTS not even 1 week...

very different game

D3 has a variety of skills and synergy with items and even the type of skills used can vary the game play
plus alot of grinding for items

hots has mainly 1 skill tree
the synergy comes with the team of 5
essentially a team game
and items dont matter (unlike dota)

different game different appeal

Well, DOTA 2 still manages to interest me despite being very bad at it. :s13: I gave HOTS a few chance but I still can't play it without getting bored.

hots is an infant
dota is a giant - 18m USD prize pool, the largest for e-sports
nobody is going to come close

and thats not even counting LOL who's world cup is in Oct and prize money is 1m

hots won't go that way imo. the problem with the game is that it's designed for casuals. sure u can argue that teamwork is the main theme but all mobas require teamwork to succeed if played as a tourney. lack of mechanics (last hitting, denying and item builds) will not make it last too long. skill tree is interesting but it will be stale eventually.

Then why Blizz keep pushing for esports for this HOTS?

i think if a big enough company throw enough money at a game, it will work
xbox didnt exist, microsoft created it from scratch

if somehow they can make it competitively viable for gamers then it is a possibility

even a pay to win system like LOL generates a competitive environment
