Violence, fear, nudity?
The characters compete in many fights. Never blood. When the characters lose, they are knocked out and can be resurrected or come back to life on their own.
Attacks of fire, ice, electricity, wind, magic… are used, in addition to punches, knives, firearms. Some female characters wear costumes revealing cleavage or navel. Sometimes the characters say phrases with sexual connotations. Some characters talk about flatulence, fart, vomit or use vomit as an attack. The words “b-tch” and “as” appear in the dialogues.
Level of language used
The Heroes of the Storm community is known to be highly toxic. Insults, provocations rain down during matches. Nevertheless, on millions of players, there is the possibility of finding positive and caring players. It is necessary to eventually find a positive group to of course, enjoy the game more.
The toxicity of the community makes positive messages difficult. But it is possible to teach teamwork through this game, as long as one is well supervised and surrounded.

Additional costs ?

A lot of keyboard and mouse execution is needed to react in time and avoid attacks from opponents.
