I got in the technical alpha. Has anyone tried it yet? I can't really play since I'm studying for an exam =[

I got back into it this weekend. Game got more fun since I last played during beta.

They added a LOT more characters from all over the Blizzard universe which was really neat to see.

It's like the Overwatch version of a MOBA. Y'all should give it a shot.

Yeah I started playing since the new 2.0 patch. I agree it's a lot more fun than it was in beta.

anyone else play?

I'm pretty hooked at the moment. It's like a less competitive/stressful version of LoL/DotA.

I play. Ranked diamond 1 this last season after losing my promotion game to masters several times...

Looks like there's not too many people though. Everyone's too into league.

I've only seen flamers and trolls in like 5% of my games. Hard to believe right?

You gain XP a lot faster when playing as a group + using Stimpack.
