So why aren't there any only mid mode for HoN? This seriusly bugs me since everytime you try to play a nice 1v1 game you end up meeting a freak who must use all the lanes. You could say "hey there are other maps try them". Well I have and the others are pretty bad.
Why haven't the Only Mid mode being added?
So my suggestion is basically adding a Only mid mode for when you want to play real 1v1 on a good map.
An addition to this suggestion is that you can disable lanes also. For example "No top" then the creeps wont spawn there and all buildings will on those lanes will be invulnerable.

You have a point there.

i definitely agree. i don't even have problems with people going to other lanes in a 1v1. i have a problem when creeps destroy towers only for 1 side, or not at the same time. it can change the game to have a tower taken down before the other side does, giving you enough to get a good item, etc. (i once played a 1v1 where for 40 min my creeps didn't push a single tower, while the enemy's destroyed all 4 from the other lanes. and yes, i ended up winning :P but that's not the point. it was still unfair in his favor)
would be a great addition to the all one duplicate hero teams played in mid as well.
I'm going to have to disagree. I hate to break it to all you complainers who host 1v1's and then immediately pick your strongest carry hero. The only way a non-carry hero can win a 1v1 battle is by essentially out-farming your enemy, there lies a form of balance. If you take this away, one versus one will just be another stupid hero-fight like DotA. Maybe make a 1v1 map that has balance for non-carry heroes, but not this, sorry.
To the one who made the topic 2 weeks ago I'm sorry since I didn't see it. Try to search for "only mid" and you will see why I made it.
Anyway if you want the "balance" with carrys 1v1 then you don't need to use the only mid command. Remember it is just a command not permanent. Anyways the carries aren't the best on 1v1 and normally you don't go all pick at all (I don't know if you have really played ut very much or are trolling).
Making a new map for 1v1 is plain boring since you want the original map. It is perfect for 1v1 I think and you know about the juke places. And yes you could learn all the juke-spots and such on a new map also but it wont be the same fun.
I'd like to point out, that when the map editor comes out, there will be a hundred 1v1 lane maps. So the addition of -OM is fairly useless. Please just be patient and wait until then.
Help stop leavers from ruining your bans here.
Maybe you haven't read my most recent post but. But I don't want a massive numbers of 1v1 maps, like most other of the players. We just want the normal map and play it only mid like in dota.
Making loads of 1v1 maps wont solve the problem at all since people still want to play the original map. Seriously I don't see the big problem with adding 1 new command which will be used by many players.
On a side note. You nay sayers are you ever playing 1v1 or are you just saying something which sounds smart? Since if you really have played some 1v1 matches and think they are fun you will see that without the only mid command you loose a big part of the game. If you play a 1v1 game on the normal map 90% of them are only mid. So why not just add the simple command which will make all players joining a Only mid game follow the rules?
yeah i agree with HobbitNagg still. it isn't a very complicated mode to create and it isn't just about 1v1s (which are balanced btw. intelligence heroes are strong early in the game, strength heroes can tank 1 person very well, etc.. a lot of what matters in a 1v1 depends on your item build. if you played any, you might see that they can be very fun).
but yes, it's also about a fun mode. i've done 5v5 om with 10 pudge (devourer) and it's very fun. but you don't even need everyone to be the same hero. i've played serious 5v5 om matches back in the day with earthshaker (behemoth) keeper of the light (nymphora...sorta), etc.. there's no reason why a fun mode (that's easy to code) shouldn't be implemented, especially with previous success
Implement this please.
I suggest incorporating a "disable lane" feature so the game can be manipulated to disable top and bot lanes or only top lane. This will allow for different playing modes in the traditional map and will also allow mid only mode.
By disabling I mean, no creeps spawn for that lane and all buildings in that lane are invulnerable.
I loved the -OM mode. For sure add this!
Please vote yes on this....!!!!
I support lowering the price of silver coins for nickname change!!
I am a fan of making it possible to change your alt avatar after the game starts!
