Well I've still never played a ranked match so...I have no rank.

Maybe? I use to be of the opinion that it was, but then I started learning more about the games mechanics. Still learning and I've got almost 1000 matches under my belt (though that's small by moba terms).

Free to play.

I've still spent 0$ on it. I would feel bad, but Blizzard hasn't offered any paid skins I want enough to drop 10$ on them.
I think it's a 5-10GB download. If you download it I can do a few bot matches with you and explain the basic mechanics.

I'm usually off work by 4 (so now) and am around anytime after that until I need to sleep.
I'll PM you a link to the discord server I'm usually actively in (for HotS among other things). That's usually the best way to poke me as I have steam and battlenet messages muted while I'm in game.

Edit: this Friday I will not be around until later. Have a haircut scheduled after work. Need to trim the mop on my head. XD

The latest voip application that all the kids be using. It's got a little less overhead than skype and some features skype doesn't have (such as drop in and out calling). You can use the windows, or mobile app as well as just load it within a web browser.
There is also a KFGames server that is used every month for the community game's night as well as general chatting among best friends.

I personally think it is. I see it as more of a moba-lite but thats why I like it. I play it when I want to play a moba that isn't so full on and has quick matches.

So I'm gonna revive this idea now that I have a PC once again. It's also worth noting that starting on 11/15, playing a certain amount of games with friends will net you some cool rewards in both HotS and Overwatch if you play either.

If anyone is interested in jumping into HotS for the first time, I'm also gonna go ahead and plug my refer-a-friend link. Sign up with it, and we both get some cool rewards. https://battle.net/recruit/FTMRGHWJV5

Just as an update as I was originally interested in doing this - I've not touched the game since April-May earlier this year and don't have a strong desire (or any desire for that matter) to return to it. =__=

Sorry, Weidleface. :\

It's cool, there's a pretty niche community for the game right now so I wasn't really expecting people to be busting doors down.

I'm still down to team up for HL or QM if anyone else wants to play one day. :kinda

I play at least 1 game a day (or try to anyway). Been terrified to try ranked even though I am pretty competent at the game. That said I have games where I murder and others were I get stomped.

My problem is I tend to play a hero and then stick with it for so long that by the time I am "done" with them I suck with everyone else but them again lol

I had the same problem. Started playing ranked...it's so much better from the few matches I have done. It is so much easier to play specific heroes well when you actually have a team that works with and supports said hero as opposed to the fucking trash teams that QM will come up with. I thought for the longest time that I couldn't play any of the mage characters for shit. Turns out when you have a front line that constantly lines up kills playing a mage character is a lot easier. Same goes for playing a front line tank when you have a support, or playing a support when you aren't expected to keep 4 squishballs alive while they constantly dive in.

Definitely recommend playing some ranked. Worst case scenario you end up losing almost all of your placement games and you are put in bronze (similar to what will likely happen to me) where the majority of the people are interested in having fun instead of being try-hards.

Yeah I may have to just jump in. I feel comfortable enough with each hero type I just don't feel like the try hards raging at me. I don't really care at the end of the day but it's just not worth the energy lol.

Only speaking (typing?) from limited experience, but I run into more tryhards in QM than I do in ranked (again...playing in the lower brackets which is likely why). I had one match where someone got a little frustrated, but it was at a guy who spent the entire match trolling and cursing at our entire team (I was also frustrated with the twat, so that might be why I remember it as not being that bad).

I say give it a go. Worst case scenario you find it intolerable and you resume playing QM.
