When you reach Level 20 in Hero of the Storm, you will receive Graves.

I'm already level 5 and I'm horrible at these types of games. It won't be that bad, I actually kinda like the game now. It's just more or less a marketing nuisance meant for people to put time into a game they wouldn't otherwise play.

The only bad part is the people you have to play with. This is a ploy by Blizzard to get more people to play HotS as cannon fodder. Being cannon fodder wouldn't be so bad if the people you are grouped with weren't so quick to let you know how bad you stink at the game in very colorful and plentiful words.

Maybe a thread could be started where people from these boards can team up with others looking to get the pets, and avoid the random anonymous players that spew hatred the entire time.

Well you appear to get xp for training matches.

I wouldn't be surprised if the exp from training matches stops after a certain level.
Oh! That said: Can you play games against bots in HotS? Or is it only PvP?

Would anyone on EU side be interested in quick matches to exp up?

Yes, you can play against bots in Co-op mode. I've been playing for a few weeks, generally 2-3 games every day, and just hit level 20 this morning. Co-op is usually quite easy, and in my experience, players tend not to say much. Occasionally you'll get someone being rude, but it's easy to put them on ignore. :)

*edit* - Also, you get extra exp for queuing with a friend, so it's still a good idea to find a buddy to play with!

Helps buying a stimpack, doubles player and hero exp gain for 7 days for just 4 euro. Should make it a lot less ornerous.
Made lvl 6 and is taking a break, gonna coop later.

I noticed, but you still have to get up there. The more time to shave off this, the better.

I just finished the tutorials and I didn't expect the game to be so cute and enthralling!

Very glad that there is a co-op botmatch option, I have no interest in playing against other people. Would be really painful to do otherwise.

I am actually glad that this is level based. I was dreading it would require you to win 3 quick matches or something, which I tried once and never again. I just did coop this entire time and I still got to lvl 20 :D

I've got a couple beta keys to give away if anyone needs one and wants to get a head start before the open beta starts.

I downloaded the beta but haven't begun..I did read up a bit on it so far.

I want to know...if I play now and level up, will I have to restart at level 1 to get Graves?

Another way of asking...is there a set start time for the level req.for acquiring Graves?
Thanks all

I don't think the levels will go away, just like they didn't after Hearthstone beta. Besides, they're selling champions and other stuff already despite it being beta, so I really doubt anything will go away once the game goes live.
Also, I downloaded and installed the game without ever having to enter a beta key, does that mean it's in open beta already? I can't find anything on the official website though...

Lets be honest though, would you rather do it this way or spend months trying to grind our reputation or trying to fight a thousand other people for the spawn *cough* Minfernal? Personally speaking I have always loved the DotA style game and the beta was pretty fun, it will be a fun time!

Afterall, its not like we have to win 250 pvp pet battles to get him right?!
