    Emh, that's a pretty shitty prize pool for NASL.
    Proof that LoL players are definitely brain damaged and have no clue what they're talking about :

    Chronos was extremely bad early game and could only KS with his blink then blink away as he would die in 2 hits. Xin is like Pyromancer early game, can towerdive anyone once he gets to level 3.

    First, 40K eh? Even LoL throws more money into tournaments than this. Step it up S2 you are losing the competitive scene. Why would pro players stay here when they can move to LoL or Dota 2 for more money.

    Second, it said there was 1 million new accounts created since the game went free to play and yet the average amount of players playing is roughly 10k more than before F2P at around 50-60k max. Nice BS stat you got there, either that or the people who made those accounts don't even play the game.

    LoL almost never has tournaments, so they throw tons of money at the few they have.

    Didn't knew that we were comparing dick sizes to be honest, and HoN had 3.5 million users before going F2P, right now there is 4.6 million people registered.

    If S2 wanted to hide their statistics they would not implement the in-game player counter for everyone to see. Unlike LoL you have access to how many players are online at any given time.

    HoN is doing great and I wish it best of luck ! Not everyone has 400 million dollars of investment from a chinese company and I'm happy with that, they can make whatever they want without getting pressurized by investors!

    wow nice prize pool. even the starcraft 2 only had $100,000 for nasl.

    SC 2 only had 100,000 and that's a Blizzard game, the prize pool is okay.

    Other than that, interesting!

    Edit: "Scarier" beat me to it...

    I don't understand why every post by S2 gets burned to the ground.
    We all love ESPORTS, more tournaments means more exposure to people of pro gaming, regardless of how this game stacks up to the others.

    This x100, it is sad to see how spoiled the competitive community is getting in terms of prize pools... really only even a year ago a $40,000 prize pool would have "OMG such a big event, this is awesome, good stuff". Yet now because of these rediculous outliar events lately its "omg $40,000 rofl that is nothing what a joke".

    In the end, the prize pool should only be one aspect to look at when looking at an event and the NASL will bring very good production to the game and help make it even more entertaining to watch than it already is (in my opinion). So I see this as a fantastic move for HoN and I can't wait to cover this event and hopefully you guys enjoy the work we do for it, and good luck to the teams!
