I've been busy with life/exams/poker for almost a month (barely played a few games every now and then in the meantime) only to find out that by next week, there's 4 new heroes that I don't know anything about and another 2 or 3 that i don't know much about.
Sure... you can keep up if you play 10 games daily, but there's just too much content coming in. I don't like to compare HoN with DotA, but at least DotA gave you like a couple of months to try the new heroes, learn how to counter them and get used to how they influence the meta game overall, before a new hero would be introduced. With HoN... by the time everyone gets used to a new hero, 3 more have been introduced.
Now that the easter holiday came, I will have a lot of free time but I cba trying to catch up again...
I used to play much more often (5+ games a day) and I wasn't happy back then either, with S2's approach of rushing content and adding a new hero every 2 weeks.
tl;dr - a new hero every 2 weeks is stupid (both for the casual and competitive players)

We have been over this many times.
Do a search plx.
Seriously? Exactly 1 year ago people were flooding the forums with threads about how we weren't getting new heroes every week
"Honestly I think the reason we all get so upset over this game is BECAUSE of how much we love it." -PieRowManSir
The community sometimes doesn't even know what it wants. As an example, a lot of people usually complain that a new hero is OP and insist on a nerf. Is that what they really want ? NO. A week later it turns out that the hero might even need a buff, since he's severely underpowered.
S2 must make the decision that makes the most sense in the long run, not what 2 random 1400 mmr guys complained about, once, in a forum thread.
But yeah, maybe a new hero every 2 weeks is a good idea in terms of profit (Early Access).

it takes next to no time at all to read a heroes skills.
OP why do new heroes bother you so much?
Do you have to play them?

god give me a break f2p hon community... get over it, they need to profit to survive... let it go... same discussion over and over is too mainstream
cry more just because you dont have time doesn't mean others dont either
I personally do not like so many heroes...they should do a new hero all three weeks and instead we get more balance changes and more alt avatars or new features in HoN. Better then new heroes. I never played one of the last 10 new heroes anyway exept Monarch. And EA sucks
If people keep buying them, they'll keep making them. Simple as that.
i am currently bored. if not for new heroes every so often id die of boredom
plus op whines too much shh

Hon needs money.. and they get money by creating heroes... who cares about balance..? this game is dead competitively anyways..
I am not a racist.. I hate all people equally.

Mods close this thread plox.
It is NCC.
wasn't every 3 weeks a while back, and the forum exploded demanding every 2 weeks again(around monarch general release iirc)
Are you ****ing kidding me?
Seriously? This again? GOD, how many times do we have to see this thread where everyone wants a different interval between hero releases, I mean how many times does it have to be changed?
