The one obvious MOBA-customized feature of the Hero Edition are the highlighted QWER keys rather than WASD. That only really matters if you look down at your keyboard when you're supposed to be using them.

Overall, the keyboard is comfortable to use, laid out well for touch typing and gaming, and responsive.
