These fantastic community folks KhaldorSo1dierRawrJar, and Sinvicta will be joining Community Managers Trikslyr and Spyrian in some Hero League games and discussing how this mode works as well as the mentality of the players going into these types of serious mode games!


1/23: From the Bullpen: Imbalances are Cool!

Technical Designer John Hodgson talks about imbalances in his latest From the Bullpen blog post. He isn’t referring to particular game elements that are over-powered which detracts from the fun, but rather, to differences between players and the Heroes they control that make the game fun (more “asymmetry” than “imbalance”).


Imbalances in this particular definition create fun role-playing opportunities, make Heroes feel more powerful, and drive interesting gameplay. Without these game counters or asymmetry, the game would become homogenized and uninteresting.
