Heroes Of The Storm Team Recovers After Being One Point Away From Defeat

I don’t think anyone has bitten their nails as hard as the people who played in this match.

Like other MOBAs, the goal in Heroes of the Storm is to take out the opposing team’s base — one building specifically, known simple as the “core”. A match ends when the health bar for one team’s core has been reduced to zero. In an impossibly tense match captured recently by YouTuber ZxcAb (via Reddit), one team manages to fight their way back from having their core beaten down to one per cent health. The red team was so sure they had it in the bag that LiLi — a character known for her healing abilities more than anything else — tried running in again after all her comrades died to try and knock off that last unit of health.

One per cent! That’s as close as one can get to the brink of defeat in Heroes of the Storm before they get shoved off. I’m pretty sure I would have had a heart attack if this happened in one of my games.


  • The comeback potential in this game is huge. More than any other moba.
    Sure you can still get steam rolled but if you can get it together, you can make massive come backs. A lot like footy.
    In the other mobas because you have items , and individual items , one character or one team can just get exponentially bigger lowering the chance for a comeback like other games. (eg: irl sports, fps games etc)

    • I have to agree, the pendulum swings back and forth pretty hard in this as opposed to getting steamrolled in other games! To be fair though, I haven’t been putting many hours in recently. I found the game has stagnated a little but that may be more to do with the guys I play with than the actual game itself.
