Today went much better. I think more noobies like me were in the game now as I seemed to get matched up with quite a few really good matches (wins and losses). The first few of the night Will and I did quite well...not sure if we were against completely green players, or we were going back into the game with a vengeance. Overall a much more positive impression now that I'm just under hitting the 6 hour mark.
Now, all that said I have to ask myself about longevity. Do I think for the...I think it's $16 something Canadian is the game going to be worth it? Can I get value out of that. There's enough characters to bounce around and try out new stuff and I am having fun with it, but I don't see myself getting as enthralled as I did with something like Duelyst. I had to pull myself away from Duelyst, so I could focus on other games and I'm not sure I'd have that same relationship with Battlerite. That said, if I get 20-30 hours out of it that still isn't bad. I've certainly paid more for less when it comes to games.
Oh and obligatory favourite heroes list:
Freya and Ruh Kaan
Still need to try out half the characters.
