Woot I got an alpha invite! Not really sure what it was from but it just popped up in my list of games in the battle.net launcher.
The Lost Vikings, that is hilarious.
Not quite sure what you're saying exactly.
But ideally (strictly speaking, companies have thrown around the labels enough to pretty much make them kinda arbitrary), a beta is a mostly complete version of the game where lots of new stuff won't be added or majorly changed - it is now time for developers to crunch down in response to lots of testing to polish up the game and make it as perfect as possible.
A closed version is just generally less done than a open version which is why they make it less available to the public, though for multiplayer games I suppose open versions would require a stress test for their servers and so they'd hold off on releasing an open version for that reason.

Having just got an invite and never really played MOB As. Is there any way to bind attack move to a mouse button without having to press the button then left clicking?
Right clicking a target engages your character to auto attack whatever you right clicked automatically
I meant attack location, the A button + left click on the ground. Anyway to wrap that all into a single mouse button.

(I am not in the testing) If you can't easily see a way to change the keybinding for attack-moving into a mouse button for whatever reason, I'd doubt it.
Try looking through the options REALLY HARD, I'd suggest?

I'm already wondering if Overwatch characters might show up in this. Going from the site they seem to be very MOBA-like already. I guess it comes down to whether the new kids are allowed to play with the old classics.
Oh wow, they confirmed at a Q&A that Overwatch is in. Woot.
Trailer, and check out the footage at the about a minute and a half in, the whole cast scene before the beta announcement. I see the Butcher, Rexxar, Sylvanas, and I think Leoric in the crowd.

I just wanna knwo when John Blackthorne and the Rock N Roll Racers join the fray.
Well, now I'm in the alpha. Guess I'll download it tonight and see what's up.
Welcome to the alpha. I hope you were born an elite master of the game, or this is going to be rough.

Well, I guess the good news is that I know someone in the game (not counting you guys) who can help me out if I need it. (My former guild leader from when I played World of Warcraft is apparently in the alpha as well.)
That said, looking at this week's rotation of free heroes, I'm probably going to give Muradin a spin. Thoughts?
Closed beta starts today, and have some patch notes.
Well that is some new armor Thrall... I don't really like it since his old one was such a character plot point and had a history to it.

I was a little worried because the beta preview video seemingly showed Abathur in lane slashing at enemies. I think that's his new ultimate—his abilities look adjusted not completely rebuilt. I think he's a wonderfully unique character with his "commander" tool kit, I didn't want to see him as an assassin because he was too weird from the established MOBA norm.
I think I'm in Beta now. BOO-YAH!
It appears to be letting me install the game at the very least. That seems like a pretty solid indicator.
Despite the fact that it's moved from Alpha to Beta, it seems to still be totally unplayable on my computer.
'twas laggy as fuck. Rather hard to play and enjoy.
I get a framerate of 1, for whatever reason. Probably some sort of hardware incompatibility. I guess that's exactly what they need to test for, but it doesn't make the game any funner to play on my end.
I had some slow loading at times, but for the most part it runs fine for me once I actually get into the game, and I'm running on a laptop that's 4 or 5 years old now.
Yeah, I don't think the hardware requirements are high or anything, more that there's some specific problem. My brother's new top-of-the-line computer runs into the same problem.
Yeah, Blizzard has never been one to push system requirements, but it's hard to account for everyone's specific system specs.
Still playing Li Li. Her revamp wasn't as extensive as I feared, so her play style is mostly intact. Cloud Serpent has some great talents now...but untalented it still seems utterly pointless.
Goddamit, I hate random disconnections. I DC while it's playing the animation for the enemy nexus blowing up and I don't get any credit for one of the best matches I've had.
After playing for more than a week, I'm thoroughly enjoying myself. It's definitely everything I hoped it would be, and aside from Poros and their occasional featured game mode, I'm going to be hard pressed to think of a reason to go back to League of Legends.
I also love what they've done with the Mercenary Camps, AKA the Blizzard jungles. Contrast to where in League I hated the jungle, I now find myself actually going to them on a regular basis because they actually give me a good reason to that makes sense.
I like Falstad. His Z thing is unique enough and he hits harder than I thought.
I expected Thrall to be OP upon release because...you know...Thrall. But I am hoping that now that I bought Tyrande I can get some good practice with her, as she was my fave Hero so far.
