11. Welcome to the Nexus: A basic guide to Heroes of the Storm by Team Liquid

This basic guide gives a pretty quick overview HotS will get you up and running very quickly. What sets this guide apart is the in detailed explanation of how to roll through the phases of the game. HotS isn’t about charging headlong into battle, but mastering the varied stages of the match.

Also, there is a glossary at the end of the guide to help understand the terminology, and knowing how the enemy walks and talks is a basic principle of battle. Except Murky, I don’t anyone knows what he is saying.

Not the most warm welcoming party, but hey we aren’t here for cuddles and hot cocoa.

Blizzard Watch’s HotS guide will take you from the sidelines all the way to center stage. This guide may have some of the fundamentals of a basic guide, but also includes descriptive map guides, hero guides, and up to date news to keep you continually running at full speed through the Nexus.
