I’m a Heroes of the Storm player since beta. I play enough to never miss daily quests, but not enough to become really good or competitive at this. I don’t usually watch championships or streamers, since that is time I could use playing instead.
I always played solo in mobas. I left LoL years ago because the toxicity became unbearable to me (I’m weak, not judging the game). The trend I see in HotS worries me, so I’m giving social play a chance. I’m looking for a safe space, where people try to learn from defeats instead of blaming, and honor the effort of the opponent on victories
If you add me to your teams, you will get a focused player that never gets angry and never insults anyone. A calm, civilized adult, whose ego is not based on a game. That is my promise.
I’m more a follower than a leader, and if I’m online, you can add me to play (or learn to play) whatever hero you need, to the best of my skill. (I main Auriel, Gul’dan and Gazlowe btw)
Not everything is nice about me though: one of my biggest pet peeve is efficiency in communication. I usually mute players that type about things that can’t be changed (a locked hero pick, a lost fort, a mistake 5 levels ago) or express emotions (omg, wtf, gg we lost, etc) instead of strategy. Maybe with voice chat this is more bearable, but diverting your team’s attention from the game to the chat, only to tell them something they can’t use to win the game feels like a waste. I think positive reinforcement like “gj” is ok though: motivation always helps.
Recently my job made me move semi-permantently from Europe to the US (hence the title). I still don’t know how regions work in hots. I’ve been using my EU account with no latency problems lately, but maybe when I try to add a US player to the party everything breaks, or latency goes up, or someone can’t use the heroes they purchased. If that’s the case then I will probably have to leave, in search of a EU community. But I have to try.
My play hours are usually from 10pm to 12pm Eastern time.. Battle net Id is Yuce#2995
