Game Update
Forest of Endor

Why don't they just call the new HvV "Hero Blast"?

I mean, that's what it is.

    Because it’s “evolving”. Haven’t you heard?

    Because it's their game and they do what they want. As F8RGE has told us, if we don't like the watered down, vanilla, boring Hero Blast/TDM, we are welcome to go play another game (I still stick with it, because I still enjoy playing as heroes, but it's nowhere near as fun, memorable, or video-worthy).

    If they wanna turn it into Star Wars Checkers, but still call it Heroes Vs Villains, then that's their prerogative. It's their game.

    They do not owe us any explanation for why this content was removed. According to them, no content was removed at all. Apparently, a ruleset is not content. Tell that to football fans, if the NFL were to decide, for "safety" reasons, that all future football seasons shall be played under the rules of British football (aka soccer), and that Madden games will now be FIFA......but don't worry, no content has changed!

    They've already told us that making new content is more fun than fixing old, so they're happy to leave their maps with all the swiss cheese glitch holes, cos it's easier just to change the rules so nobody bothers to hide in them.

    Nice analogy!

    Yeah, thanks. It seemed fitting to me, especially since the topic creator was specifically wondering why Heroes Vs Villains is still called that when it's not Heroes Vs Villains at all.

    Hero Bust.

    Find me in HvV, pushing people off of stuff and watching them fall, like a cat.
  • Seriously, though. Why wouldn't they name it what it is??
  • Because it isn’t Blast. Hero Blast is Blast with you being able to pick a hero and spawn in right away and just bang away.

    I don’t feel they are the same at all. And I WANT Hero Blast.

    Blast is my nearly exclusive mode that I play. It ain’t blast.
    Find me in Blast, CO-OP, CS, usually playing Officer/Specialist/Aerial... u/n cosworth99. #nt242headshots #oldguy

  • Probably because it’s still heroes versus villains. I don’t recall seeing any troopers or reinforcements in the mode. Am I missing something?

    So let's call Hero Showdown Heroes Vs Villains as well, after all it too is a mode of Heroes Vs Villains only.

    To an extent we should call GA and CS Heroes Vs Villains too, for all the complaints of how Hero Centric the game is.

    Jokes aside, I totally agree with OP. Not only the name doesn't give any info on the mode besides it being a mode of heroes and villains (like other 2), but it also, and more importantly, is the name that the old mode had, and for more then a year was associated with it. It's only fair that getting rid of that mode in favor of this Hero Blast/TDM should also come with a new name for it.
    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.

    Going by your logic, it should have been called Hero Targets or Hero Runners. Who really cares? Is this the final whimper of target mode supporters? Now the name should be changed? Pick your battles...
  • Heroes fight against Villains. The name still fits it pretty well in my opinion. But i sense the real motivation behind this thread is some kind of dislike from the op against the changes to HvV?

    Anyway, a pointless thread. Why even bother creating it?

    How is that different from what they're currently calling HvV? That sounds exactly like what happens when I play HvV.

    Exactly. Well said! =)

    Nah. I don't have a dog in that race. Not much of a hero player. I prefer troopers.

    Going by your logic, not mine, just refer to your original post.

    This isn't a battle, I was just agreeing with OP, and making a joke off of your logic.

    Now, if just because of a name suggestion you see a group of defenders of the target system trying to bring their agenda, then I think you need some time to chill.

    I completely understand the frustration of someone who doesn't follow the news on this game, played a lot of it for months or more then a year, then had to stay away from the game for quite a while, to get back and hop into his favorite mode just to discover it isn't his favorite mode anymore, but a completely different mode that bears the same name.

    If they wanted to remove a mode and bring another in its place, then change its name. But we all know devs didn't do this to fend off any arguments for content removal (which is exactly what they did, despite saying no content was removed several times). Not only they failed to provide any solution to the old mode, but they also failed to 'constantly evolve' the new one. We're still stuck with this same boring and too simplistic Blast mode for Heroes only for months, and with nothing promised for the future.
