Heroes of Newerth is seriously lacking in the heros that are most used in competitive dota.
There is no Puck, Morphling, Spectre, Sand King, Priestess of the Moon, Kunka, Skeleton King.
These heros are the corner stone of competitive play with atleast three being picked in every pro game, but yet you include heros like Rikimaru, Anti Mage and other competitively weak heros.
As a result any in house games are pretty weak with the same heros being picked and not even enough good heros to really do bans. The pace of the entire game and the way its played is changed as a result.
They are in development, they will be rolling out a lot of heroes in August
Proud to be the first person to officially purchase Heroes of Newerth
HoN is also seriously lacking in beta testers who realize it is still a BETA and not everything is there yet. They have been implementing heroes that they already have concepts for. Also, use the search feature, this topic has already been brought up on multiple occasions and at this point you're flogging the dead horse.Heroes of Newerth is seriously lacking in the heros that are most used in competitive dota.
Honestly, why cry about this, more hero's to come.
They left in a ton of auto bans, Enigma, CM, death profit and rasta to name a few.
They're might be some competitively viable heroes that are in the game currently and simply not being used, because we don't have any experience with them. Should be interesting to see how the HoN meta pans out.
While on topic of competitive play for HoN, is captain's mode planned for the next patch?
They should include new heroes that could fulfill those roles instead of making carbon copies of DotA heroes.
