How much is HotS a game of chance/skill in your opinion? Let’s say — on a scale from 1 to 5 where 1 is pure chance (like in dice games) and 5 is a pure skill game (like chess).
I would say, 2. You can always play with 4 friends and then there is no chance you get a flamer/feeder. Actually, this is probably the only reasonable option to play this game. Otherwise, the most important factor hands down is who else you get in your team and this is totally beyond your control. It’s not your skill that much. It’s where the biggest feeder or the most toxic kid is located, in your team or in the opposite one.
Blizzard wanted a game with a strong team focus. I get the idea but I think they overdid it. They managed to create a game where too little is up to a single player which discourages most of the players on the unlucky side. I like something I read, I think, on Quora. A guy wrote that you must be at least diamond to get out of silver. I think this sums up the game perfectly.
What do you think?
