Heroes of the Storm interview: skill cap, characters, and the student tourney

Heroes of the Storm BlizzCon LineUp Cropped

Yesterday, I joined Heroes of the Storm game director Dustin Browder and technical director Alan Dabiri to talk about the next addition to the HotS roster, how they're working to be accessible while designing a high skill cap, and the upcoming Heroes of the Dorm tournament.

Keep an eye out for our ASUS ROG G751 (opens in new tab) laptop giveaway after PAX East—we're collecting signatures from everyone we interview for a one-of-a-kind prize.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
