There were triangle constructed AoS Maps in WC3 i remember..
do you think it would work for HoN?
I'd expect great action (MSI vs OK vs coL, breaky getting heartattack trying to go play by play ) and even greater drama (LOL YOU 2on1'ed us, trololol).
Basically everything the HoN community is about^2.
Stupid. One team will always be teamed by the other two. Don't see where this will become fun or competitive whatsoever.
good FFA wc3 days
you - blue
enemies - green, orange, yellow
you to green: hey orange is maphacker, let's kill him
you to orange: hey yellow has the best economic, let's kill him
you to yellow: hey, green is gonna team with orange vs you, let's kill him?
1.) Competitive teams have a hard enough to time picking against 1 team, doubt they have the brainpower to pick against 2 or 3 (in a 5v5v5 or a 5v5v5v5)
2.) From a spectator viewpoint, it would be A LOT more entertaining, though harder to cast. HoNcast, who has been casting since the game was in beta, still misses fights every single game while watching a guy farm neuts or something equally stupid.
3.) Would require more heroes and better balance across the entire pool.
4.) Private Messaging would have to be monitored/disabled to prevent what GuessWho` just mentioned, but there would still be plenty of other ways (vent, IRC, etc.) for teams to form alliances within the game, thus making it what the competitive scene is today.... the same small group of guys who play with each other all the time.
with 4 teams it could have some nice strategies and backstabbing - and thus worth of considering planning. One corner for each.
5 teams would mean a lot more action and uncertainty, should be fun. Just arrange it into a pentagon
the map design wouldnt be the problem - Townportal Cooldowns would be..
This seems like a slightly unorthodox way to make Sand Wraith a permaban.

it'd be ****ed up, which means it would be fun as **** as well. I don't think it would go comp though x)
Yeah while on it let's add a flash version of HoN also, or something like cs-manager.com but with HoN instead!!111!
MoonMeander: Sometimes when I get bored at night I pretend I'm Chtuluphant and charge my girlfriend, pillow, blanket off the bed and yell "MRRHHHHHHHHHH!"
Parakletos: two kinds of people in the world: people who jump on their **** in the shower and dirty liers
Fantasy: You definitely are a GIANT contributer that I am, where I am.
NovyPirat: The only thing riser needs to survive is the island and the others
