You mean what S2 did?The more I see, the more I'm pretty sure we'll all cash in, revel in our nostalgic heroes, and then realize we've been used as cheap whores as we're cast aside once they have our money.
I feel dirty already.
the trailer alone is better than Hon the entire game.. don't even have to discuss the failure of $2
The HoN graphics seems much better.
The reason I (and probably alot of other guys) switched to HoN, was because of the graphics.
The screenshots are decent but not that good at all.
Yah, S2 did it once, because the game needed to be updated from a mod to a client with graphical updates to improve on the aging WC3 engine and escape the limitations of building a game in a client made for playing a different game. And now DotA 2 is offering to change it from a client to.... another client with similar technical capabilities?
One was a necessity of the times, one is just cashing in. S2 just figured out MOBAs were the golden goose before Valve did.

Most games, you release them, you get money, you patch them 2-3 times, and then you move on to a new product. HoN doesn't work that way.
I enjoyed the trailer but really expected such better graphics (didn't know Valve's engine or whatever was so meh tbh). In term of graphics, I can say I already prefer HoN's (way more realistic, not stylized like LoL's and apparently Dota2's..).
Can't wait the tourney to see what it truely looks like tho.
and rofl at Handsomebob

So what you're saying is S2 didn't have the foresight to factor in the running costs of their game? Even though Redjedi/Maliken explicitly stated that they indeed had calculated the infrastructure and maintenance costs during beta? What kind of incompetent group of people are we handing our money over to if that's the case?

Fuggin TOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLDDD, plebs.
Weren't you the guy who also said Pudge was covered in earrings or piercings? I distinctly recall someone claiming to have beta sources saying that.
What I said is in this thread. Just search for ArnoldRimmer.
