    I just want to chime in on the engine thing: a couple of the things that Notch attributed to the starcraft engine are not a product of the engine, but the mindset of the developers. For instance, the match making algorithm (and MMR) and ranking system were developed specific for this game but by the same people that did starcraft and hearthstone (and were not inherited from the engine). The only major flaw inherited from the starcraft engine was the replay and observer interfaces (and these will be kind of hard to implement in this engine due to the structure of how the games are played).

    Reusing the engine allowed them to focus on game design and assets (as opposed to game programmers) and the investment they did on the starcraft engine was to allow more games to be built on it. Lastly, had they developed a new engine from the ground up, heroes would not exist for another 5 years or so.
