    Well I think the poster below made some decent points on the issue of the legitimacy of the OP's opinion (regarding the underpowered nature of many heroes), I will not change my opinion.

    Also, please stop derailing these threads with HoN vs LoL comparisons.

    Since pics are disabled, the following in an explanation on how to count better.
    Ever tired of counting on your fingers and being stuck at 10? Here's the solution: Binary finger counting. Instead of counting how many fingers are up, you count which fingers are up. With only 8 fingers, you can count up to 255.
    1. Ignore thumbs, they make this process harder.
    2. Start with your rightmost finger. This finger represents 2^0, or 1. Your next finger represents 2^1, or 2. Try all the different combinations with these two fingers, you have a range from 0-3. Your next finger, 2^2 = 4, followed by 2^3 = 8 and so on.
    3. Now you can count high! the finger combination 00110101 = 1+4+16+32 = 53.

    This thread is diamonds already

    Skaut codex needs to be nerfed asap, way too OP, he can farm it within 10 minutes in a good game.

    The LoL lookalike of skaut is in my opinion way better then HoN's I'm really feeling like S2 is starting to ge behind.

    Also I gotta agree with coolcollo on his point towards women.

    That was a really bad comparison - it's like saying "DotA is like vim - short and to the point; HoN is like emacs - customizable with lots of features on its engine, you can always learn more about it; LoL is like pico - easy to get into, but it doesn't go anywhere and you always feel like you're limiting yourself with it".

    Or, "HoN is like Canada, DotA like the US, and LoL like Brazil". Useless metaphors and I can't say I agree with you throwing them out there like that.

    Cannot believe you would say something like that. I'm at a loss for words to describe how disgusted I am right now.

    I'd sing you a song, but
    I'm just a little hoarse.

    Can anybody tell me how an internet pony tastes?
    “You promised me Scout,
    that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
    But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
    Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”

    Scout replied,
    “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

    So in summary Fetyukov, you're immovable on the point that, given the current hero release schedule, there's no point revisiting older heroes that have fallen by the wayside due to their inherently simplistic skillsets?

    P.S. can we move the discussion away from ponies please?

    What exactly do ponies have to do with HoN again? And for that matter, what exactly does HoN have to do with OT again?

    I think we'd need more data on how EA sells in comparison to alternate avatars in order to conclude that. If a 5th Flint Beastwood skin sells better than a new hero, I don't think your argument stands up. :fors:

    HoN went F2P way to late so now they have to scam us for $$$
    Shame on the ones that have wings, but don't use them to fly.

    All I'm saying is that $2 wants money. Clearly the old shop wasn't providing what was deemed necessary, and this "Early Access" garbage is what we're going to have to live with. If people were willing to spend more money on skins and the sort maybe we wouldn't have these sorts of problems eh?

    Although there is one benefit to EA that YA pointed out
