Yes! Let's get a player based item!
No, the items are fine.
Long have we gathered in Item Suggestion, but we have yet to see any results come from all the effort put into these suggestions by a growing number of players.
As far as I know, the suggestion forum for items has been open ever since the game was in beta, and good, solid suggestions are piling up both in the normal item suggestion forum, and in popular, where thousands of votes have been cast. It is sad to see so many solid suggestions and effort by players being completely ignored, and that's why I propose a petition
"It's about time for a new item".
It doesn't even have to be a player based idea. All I'm hoping for are new items.
So if you have ever looked at an item here, which you thought would be a nice addition to the game, or possibly have made a suggestion yourself, I invite you to vote yes on this proposition, so hopefully it will get the attention it deserves from our dear S2 staff, and one day they will add a player based item. Because at this moment we are down to about 2 item added per year. Both from Dota as far as I know.
Of course I understand we don't want bad or overpowered items in the game, which is why there's a popular part of the item suggestions, for good, solid suggestions, and of course tons of testing. Chalice and striders are good examples of this. Took alot of balancing, and are now nice additions to the game. No reason why more items couldn't be. What I am trying to say is that although there are bad suggestions, it's sad to see players spend time and effort when it's being ignored completely. This part of the forum has been around since beta, which is years of suggestions which have yielded no results. There has not been a single player based item in the whole time of Heroes of Newerth.
We will use this thread as a written petition, which I invite you all to post in and vote yes on.
If you would like to help spread the word of this petition to other people on these forums, here is a code for you to add to your signature, which will add the picture above, with a link in it, so others may come and vote for more items.
Work in progress. Feel free to post.HTML Code:[URL="http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/showthread.php?t=237813"][IMG]http://i56.tinypic.com/20h53yq.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
I spoken to Nome and he insured me they are working on new items as we speak, it's just taking a while since items are harder to balance! So hopefully we have gotten some attention with this petition, and told S2 that we'd love new items. Me personally more then new heroes.
Anyway, with 700+ votes now, giving about 90% yes on wanting more items, hopefully S2 will get a nice feel of the community opinion. That yes, we'd love more items! Soon!
Thank you all for voting!

I'm only one of 4 who clicked no, my faith in the community just keeps plummeting..
btw. id much like to see a few new items instead of heroes, so that people can at least choose between builds, builds are the most static thing in hon atm. I want more countering of items, not only heroes.
Items should not be added en masse. The current selection is fine, besides.. we just got spellshards.
The point of this petition eludes me.
Can we get some more low level starter recipes for mid/end game so we dont have to trash items we built up at start?
(Vanguard / Power Supply / Ring of the teacher / Bottle ?)
They have added more than one item per year. I think the current pace of adding content is good. Heroes and items. Balance could be a bit better, but thats not for this topic.
I believe it's fine as is. That is my vote. Or did you only want the yes men to reply here and make your poll result misleading?
And you should be allowed to think 1 item per year is fine. That's why i gave a "no" option for poeple like you. But 90% of people disagree with you, and that's the point of this thread. Poeple want new items. Maybe you don't, but everyone else does.
