What is everyone's thoughts on Hero blast?

Since we now have an idea of what Hero Blast will be like, what do you guys think of it? I personally think it will be my favorite game mode to play. It sounds like so much fun.

    It'll stop me from picking just Han and GreedoXD
  • I think it's great. Personally I preferred the random hero picking before the changes so I'm glad it (hopefully) has been brought back for hero blast
  • Scared. This will allow teammates to split up even more :o

    I can just imagine the complaints about all these baby's not being able to play as the hero they want to play.

    Sounds cool. I just hope people won't quit if they aren't given the hero they wanted.They also need to give the individual DLC purchasers access. That would be a PR nightmare if you can believe it could get any worse than it already is.
    I find your lack of Guinness disturbing

    People quitting if they don't get who they want is something that could cause a problem. In HvV if a hero quits just before the game starts you end up with a hero less on your team. Pretty sure it would be a popular mode though so if someone does quit hopefully a new player can spawn as that hero to balance the teams out.
  • I'm very pumped for it. When it comes out I will play it soley for a while.
  • Meh...
  • ZERO interest in this mode
  • And nobody is talking about Hero Blast being Season Pass Exclusive, even if players bought all 4 DLCs

    not sure about everyone, but last time I heard it wasn't confirmed. Hope it does happen for the H/V peeps though.

    I think a few shorter rounds within 1 round would be nice, to enable you of having a better chance of being selected as your favorite hero. Just an opinion, though.
  • i want to be able to choose a hero rather than it choosing a hero for me.

    I prefer the randomness to be honest but I can imagine as many people would prefer they get to pick rather than the hero being decided for them.

    Perhaps to balance things out HvV could be as it is, with people getting to pick their hero, and Hero Blast random. That way both options are available albeit in slightly different game modes.

    I fear that it's another idea that is great on paper but completely trash in how implemented. I don't have a problem with randomness but I don't like it that the one hero character that is chosen in the beginning is the one that you will be force to use for the entire game especially if you're stuck with a hero that's severely underpowered compared to everyone else (Sorry Chewie, I am talking about you). I hope that they made it at least round based so you can experience the chance to be multiple hero characters on the same map.

    Well, keep in mind, the official details about hero blast are not out yet, things could change.

    Agree but if as has been suggested the Heroes/Villians are tinkered with then you could have a completely balanced game with equally matched heroes and villains with their own niche abilities.
  • If we get Hero Blast, and it plays out like we've been told, it'll be a mode I'll be excited to play. This is of course they make some Hero adjustments to make it more balanced.
  • I love how it's a random selection

    ^This. Personally I wanted a HvV-like game mode with more maps and Heroes not a Blast with Heroes. I think there will be zero teamwork or tactic in this mode, just Hero smashing for better k/d.
    But it will be still a fun mode.

  • Should be a blast (no pun intended!), at least we are getting something new to keep it fresh

    I thought you expected a Season Pass Heroes vs Villains Playlist :smiley: I even made a picture for the announcement of that!

    it'll be my favorite mode, my thoughts is that it should have been dropped with the death star, along with the new hero skins

  • I won't be playing many other modes for a loooooong time

    Honestly, the info from the leaks is not what I wanted. I was hoping for 7v7 HvV, and if you die you spawn as honor guards and then infantry, first to 5 rounds. Hero Blast has multiple problems to it. If someone quits, it's much harder for 6v7 hero battle if the teams are equally skilled. Secondly, first to 50 kills sounds like a tedious fight, something that I don't think too many casual players would be down for, especially if they die a lot. Last the random pick thing is not something that bothers me, but again if a casual doesn't want to play as Lando and you're stuck with him for a long battle, chances are he quits.

  • Sounds good to me overall except for the camping that will go on with Lando. Nerf power shot and ditch the current disruption, and we are good.
