Can I run Heroes of the Storm with my HP Stream 11-d00d1x laptop?
I bought the laptop 2 years ago and now I'm thinking of adding HotS so I can play it while I'm outside my house.

Hey MysteriousThing, you made a mistake. The developer-defined requirements are here and You looked at the 'Predicted' Requirements not the real ones. :/

As good as Dota2? I think not.This game is better because it shows your skill.You don't have items that boost your damage.An objective based moba like this one relies a lot on communication.

I am pretty new to MOBA games, but I like this one just because it has Blizzard characters. I always loved their games!

After playing 260+ games, I could never go back and play LoL or Dota. The lack of an item system makes the game much more enjoyable

Typical envious guy who cries because can't get 60 FPS. 30 FPS is not smooth, even for such a game. Yes I played this.
