the flaming is the worst in hon games, never xperienced smth like that before
like many players have serious issues or smth
Another review by some random. It's ok to not enjoy a game. I'm sure there are a massive amount of people who don't like HoN, it's just most don't make a massive post about it.
HoN: Expect less, Pay more!
Hon is full of elitist jerks that love to hate just to be different . Just like how there's always ppl shitting on a very good movie just because everyone liked it . This is the relation between HoN and LoL.
Instead of admitting that yes there is stuff that could be improved like bars , Shop and so on they rather tell you to **** off.
Sadly DOTA had so much trash talk , griefers , *******s that if you liked the genre you had to become an ass yourself . LoL offers a good game for casuals that just want to have fun while HoN dragged all the *******s from DOta .
Hi there mr besouroverde.I hope u're not trolling cause it seems a bit like it.
Anyway i'm too lazy to answer at everything u mentioned so i'll just go for the ones i still remember.
First of all,u're right about the hon community and it's manners.We got many whiners,flamers,trolls,smartasses,griefers and i'm sorry for that too.I had post a thread too btw about this ^^
Also i agree with u that kick should be removed.Actually it WAS removed but some people(dunno who,probably trolls) wanted it back so S2 gave it back.But the truth is that people don't really wanted it,ever.And the bad thing is that it isn't used properly.People always try to find a way so they can kick people.
About the remake and the pause however i got to say that i don't agree with u.Sorry i'm too lazy to explain why they're important but yes they're and for obvious reasons if u sit down and think.
Now about the speed,colours,tower range etc i'm just gonna copy and paste another's post cause that's pretty much the answer any normal hon player would give."I've never had a problem with icon/health bar sizes or anything. Game speed and turret range are the same as DotA, so not sure how you have a problem with those, unless you didn't like them in DotA either :S Having a long range doesn't make something OP on it's own. There is only one hero with the range of a tower and he has low damage to compensate for it".
"Only a true leader plunges into the dark woods of defeat and emerges in the light of victory" --
I don't know what kind of LoL you play but every time I go for a spin there's an asshat on my team trying to "lead" us.
In all honesty all your complaints boil down to "people are mean to me because I'm still bad at the game & I'm not used to this game yet".
Play the game some more, learn it, get used to it and you'll start to enjoy it more than any other game, just give it time.
stopped after "Greetings......."
i want my .8s back
I read all of this and realized my life is a failure.
The Halo reach community is just as bad as the HoN community. They just have no way of communicating to u via text in game.
There's griefers, teamkillers, players who will kill u if u take their weapon/vehicle or force u to teamkill them. Theres really bad players as well.
After playing reach for a good 3 weeks i've noticed it really isn't that much worse than the HoN community.
Thanks for the replies. On a second thought you guys might just be right about the pause and the remake functions. Although I'm not so sure of how it should operate (how many votes to trigger or how long until paused (for pause). Concerning SC2, if you put in an absolute, general way, the game is MUCH faster, I know, but the goals are different, you just gotta farm your money on minerals/ vespene and you don't lose cash when your troops are defeated. Besides, you can just macro a big group of guys and area attack on the mini-map, as you focus on spawning more reinforcements or just managing the skill based troops (like high templars) to attack and retreat as needed. You know what I mean.
Of course I'm not trolling! About my account creation, it was created when HoN was on open beta (early 2009) but never played until now (that I've purchased the full account). I'm newbie; my "eyes" and reactions are not "automatized" to the game. Despite my poor skills, I only know the items (same as DotA).
I know 5 minutes is a long time. Would have been a big loss for sure at SC2. Pause would have avoided my disconnection, yeah. But still, couldn't the teammates have waited a little while longer until I was back? So serious like that? Wow! I understand that a loss would harm a beautiful PSR ranking but the disconnection/ leave would harm mine much more :P I can't say no to the lady...
I'm not a player of FPS, like Counter-Strike or Halo. Althought I've played some games on that genre, it's not really my style, but they're still great games and very well elaborated.
I don't understand the hate/ prejudice/ intolerance about LoL or other RTS. It's OK to not like it because you don't identify yourself with it, but they're still good games and they require a different combination of skills. Liking one game doesn't require you to dislike the other...
About the in-game trolling, I know it's a "curse" that falls upon any online game. It's the internet, the competitiveness, the emotions on a string... Whatever. I just went "O.o" when I saw that scary amount of trolling having played so little (I guess I've made about 15 matches so far, with trolls on every game). I hope S2 would control more the environment by warning the lawbreakers (I don't think that suspending/ banning players is the proper way to improve the community, unless the person in case backslides and continues to trespass the rules).
So you think the shop is just OK to browse? DotA was hard for newbies to browse (buy X item on the orc peon, Y on the wisp, Z on the dwarf, W on acolyte) The labels (supportive, protective) help but I still find it a bit clumsy... Well, maybe because I'm a beginner.
Then you agree the HP bars are funky, huh? That's my worst problem so far. "Who do I click? Who do I click!?" And the kick function has already been discussed... Hope they remove it for the greatest happiness of all.
Thanks for the attention again everyone. I wish you guys a good game.
trying to hard OP. I share a totally different opinion and experience regarding both the in game and forum community
The fiddler from Chagalls village was inviting me to dance... so I danced.
OP is a scrub who has bad eyesight. Go play some 8bit games.
