Thanks to our good friends at Blizzard Entertainment, we're offering The Escapist community a chance to be part of Blizzard's latest foray into MOBAs, Heroes of the Storm. Join the epic battle between heroes representing more than 20 years of Blizzard gaming history in their closed beta test of the game. We have received thousands of beta keys just for The Escapist Community. Today, Publisher's Club members received early access to 500 of those keys and they can't wait for you to all to join them.

Over the next seven days, we will be distributing thousands of Heroes of the Storm beta keys in not one, but THREE contests. The first will be right here below for a chance to win one of one thousand keys. The second will be next Monday, where you can take our Heroes of the Storm Quiz for a chance to win one of 200 sets of five keys. Third, keep an eye out tomorrow for our new column "This is How We Do It." Readers of the inaugural column will be entered to win one of 250 keys. Enter them all for extra chances to win!

PS - We'll also be giving away beta keys via our Twitter accounts. Be sure to follow us!

Oh, I will.

Just gonna wait right here.

OT: Good luck to everybody who enters though.

I'm not calling BS on this or anything, but I'm just wondering when blizz suddenly reversed their decision to not give out keys, and instead use the opt-in/bundle as the way to join.

I await you in game to fuck you up/play beside you as Tyrael.

How's he doing without Cast Aside? I don't play him, though I know he's good.

I don't think Blizz stopped doing key giveaways when they started offering the bundle. Either way, a post from someone who gets a key would be a nice reassurance.

Just 2 more minutes before the first winners are announced. I hope I win.

No, I mean at some point they said they weren't doing 'key giveaways' and instead only throwing out invites to opt-in set accounts, to avoid the scalping insanity that went on with Hearthstone. This doesn't mean they aren't giving away keys now, I just hadn't seen an announcement on it. I could, in fact, be blind.

Edit: Googling for myself found an article put up on the 9th of Feb that yes they're doing beta keys/etc now.

https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/heroes-of-the-storm-beta

I wasn't doubting the Escapist, it was just a surprise to me. Hope to see all the winners on the battlefield!

Yeah!

Also it kinda hurts when keys are won by accounts created on 12 Feb 2015, but that's random chance for you.

I had a friend opt in to the beta and get an invite 5 minutes later. Random chance is crazy like that.

Edited - Hum. Working now. Thanks again Escapist.

Feel free to give it away to anyone you wish! The only thing I would recommend is using PM or another private way to do so. If you post it on the forums, it might get swept up by a bot.

You have my European love!

OMG, thank you soo much! I've been wanting to try the game for a while, and had never received an invite. So happy to be selected as a winner. ^_^

I have a question about the servers. If I wanted to play with someone who is in EU, is she able to just play with me on the NA server with her normal account? Or does she have to create an entirely new account and get an NA beta key? :/

I think as it stands, EU players can only play against EU players, and NA players can only play against NA players. I don't think there is a way to change region without getting a new region-specific beta code. Region changing will probably be added in closer to launch, like it is with Hearthstone and StarCraft 2.

Oh Beta key oh Beta key I really want you Beta key. Oh Beta key oh Beta key I really want you Beta key. I'll wait so long for you to be, in my grasp ohh can't you see. Oh Beta key oh Beta key I really want you Beta key

Ohhh man, looks like I gots me a key.
Thanks for doing this contest, I've been wanting to join my friend in the game for a little while now. I wish everyone else luck in getting a key of their own.

Thanks so much for the key Escapist. Didn't realise it was US and Canada only before I won it so I did the right think and gave it away to a player that could use it. EU keys please.
