UPDATE 28TH APRIL: All the keys have been sent out, so if you entered, check the email address you supplied. Hope you got one.

ORIGINAL STORY: One MOBA to rule them all but will it be Heroes of the Storm by Blizzard?

The game is still in development but you can join the closed beta by bagging a key in our giveaway this weekend. We've got 1800 keys so you stand a pretty good chance.

Just whack your email address in the box below (we won't use it for anything else) and we'll let you know if you're picked out of our hat.

Blizzard accidentally enabled the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) genre with lovely jubbly real-time strategy game Warcraft 3 a hundred years ago. Modder IceFrog created Defense of the Ancients for it and that's where it all began. Ironically, IceFrog now leads development of Valve's MOBA Dota 2.

But this is Blizzard we're talking about, the perfectionist - and a company with such a following across a variety of games that many people will flock to HOTS. We shall see!
