Sorry, but your post does not meet our requirements for technical support. Please respond with all the requirements so we can further help you.
Please try these solutions before posting your thread, and let us know that you did. Disable your firewall, disable your antivirus, and configure your router to allow allow outgoing traffic on ports 80 (login/update), 11031 (chatserver) and 11235-11335 (game servers). If you don't know how to do this, try plugging directly into your modem with no router in between.
If you can't login try a tracert to the masterserver:
Start => Run => CMD - or on Win7 - Type the following in the Search bar tracert masterserver.hon.s2games.com
Paste the results you have in this thread please
Try to reinstall the client to C:\HoN and don't forget to delete all files you have in C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\My Documents\Heroes of Newerth\.
Open your console while you're trying to login with Ctrl+F8 and enter the following: net_disableSSL false and upd_maxactivedownloads 1
If it's not solved please try a selective startup:
Start => Run => MSConfig
Select selective mode and unselect "load startup items". Save and reboot.
If that solves the problem that means a program that was loaded at the start has blocked HoN.
Please post the details of your network as follows, are you on a home network, or a school network? What is your average ping for servers closest to you? What is your bandwidth (Downloading and uploading)? Do you use a proxy?
The K2 engine keeps a log of the console. This is often very helpful in identifying your problem. Look under the following directory for your console.log:
Windows XP -C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\My Documents\Heroes of Newerth\game\.
Windows Vista/7 - C:\Users\[user]\Documents\Heroes of Newerth\game\.
