If you like Guild Wars PvP, then check out BLC. There are a lot of reactive skills, and positioning is very important, similar to GW. Unlike most DotA clones, its also very easy to get into, imo. Highly recommended for people who are into competitive games.

Ok, let me rephrase the following comment.
Where do you get the beta key? You keep saying join me, but how? :P You need an invitation or a beta key. Did Massively had/has a giveaway?

Thanks

Oh noes! Not more options! The game world obviously needs just one game in each genre, that way there's no debating or comparing... awesome logic, sir, you win the internetz...

Sarcasm aside, I don't see how this game is anything like DotA, HoN, or LoL.

This is a top-down team deathmatch game sharing more similarities to WoW arenas or Guild Wars than the aforementioned RTS spin-offs. I could definitely see how DotA/LoL/HoN fans might be attracted to this, for those looking to do away with the primary attack/defend objectives of those games and focus purely on the team fight aspect, but that doesn't mean they're the same type of games.

Seems fairly interesting. Could be a fun diversion for more of a deathmatch style game compared to HoN.

Is this game in open beta now? Or do I still have to wait on my key :

Nice preview, even though this isn't really an MMO game. BLC could use some publicity, because it really is a gem. I haven't invested so much time into a single game in a long time. I've been playing it every weekend since when I got my invitation. You guys should do a beta giveaway for this game.

To answer your questions; this game is not in open beta, so you need an invitation to play it. You can get one through signing up and waiting patiently or asking some of the existing beta testers for an invite. Every once in a while the devs will grant a beta invite to all beta testers who can then send them to whoever they please. I'm sure some people have some invites laying around, try going into the game's official IRC channel on qnet and asking around. You can find more info on this stuff in their forums.

Anyone fancy sending me an invite who is currently in game? I normally wouldn't resort to "begging" of sorts for one, but this game has truely sparked my interest.

Looking forward to this since it was announced along with the trailer.

S2 disappointed me and most of my friends when we pre-purchased HoN during CBT. Then open beta came then we got IP blocked saying that Garena will handle their services because we are from SEA. So I'm ok with that, but instead of having our premium privileges forever whereas they stated when we played on S2 servers. We can only have that benefits for only 3 months. I LoL'ed, we got owned.

Yeah, I would like that invitation or a key as well

I love arena fighting games, plus this one reminds me of Diablo III and DoTa so I'm that more interested.

Thank you ^^
