Heroes of the Storm Invites Newbies to the Nexus

Published: October 22, 2014 9:05 AM /


If you're anything like me, you're chomping at the bits for an invite to Blizzard's new MOBA offering, Heroes of the Storm. And while invites are still hard to come by in this early phase, those eager for some tower-stomping action might just get a magic ticket to alpha via the "Bring your Friends to the Brawl" giveaway.

Players who've applied via facebook will get the chance to enter the hotly anticipated game's beta, as well as those with Heroes players in their friends list. And while that may not be enough to satisfy everyone clamoring for access, it's a step in the right direction as the game draws closer to Closed Beta.

From Blizzard's official HOTS site:

If you have Tech Alpha access and are up to the challenge, all you’ll need to do is to reach Player Level 20 in Heroes of the Storm between Tuesday, October 7 and Tuesday, November 18, 2014. Upon doing so, you’ll be automatically entered into a random drawing, in which thousands of lucky players will be selected to invite all of their regional Battle Tag and Real ID friends to join them in Technical Alpha testing! While we’re announcing this promotion today, we wanted to make sure to include the dedicated players who have already been playing since last week’s patch, which included our final planned account wipe.

Hopefully those willing to sell their cats on the back market for a key will no longer have to worry about getting in, as this latest event looks to add as many people as possible. that being said, there's no sure-fire guarantee of access until the inevitable Early Access pack lands on the Battle.net store.
