bad players will be bad, nomatter where they are from and what language they speak
(this was not directed to you OP)
with this HoN community there will always be a group of people you hate because we all behave like irritating pricks sometimes, specialy me so dividing us up into groups wont make a difference in the long run (it can help a little though)
i wish you the best OP, cheers !
i hope this didnt sound like i was trying to break you down, i was trying the exact opposite but im kinda bad at this =]
<- is also going to be region blocked :P

I'm playing my last games, S2 lock my ip. (my english is not good).
Bye HoN and Welcome Dota2 and Diablo3
I've been playing on SEA HoN ever since we got sold to Garena. CIS followed, now you're doing the same to KR and LA.
Basically, S2 is region locking countries because they want to provide a "better" gaming experience to players.
Garena SEA has no replays.
Garena SEA has no in-game RAP.
Getting straight answers from Garena is near-impossible because the management gives players vague answers.
Servers are crappy. During EVERY Double Matchmaking Silver event, the Matchmaking service went down for quite a while, save for the most recent one.
Garena management even claims that it's S2 that handles the game servers. Is this true or are they passing the blame to you guys?
I'd list more but I only want to make one point: How is this a better gaming experience? I feel bad for the CIS region and now LA and KR are getting thrown away as well. Do you really believe that selling out your playerbase to trashy companies will help growth?
Why dont we also get servers for Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Papa New Guinea, etc..
Lets encourage the competitive scene in the Oceania area, besides they are way, waaaaaaaaaay further than South America.
blizzard is merging NA server with Latin america server
Hon is dividing(?) the servers
Who is right?
Latin america dont have too many players like other regions... LA server will die slowly...

Look for my highlighted text (important information) and grey text (interesting but not required information).
Uhmm... from what i see this is Spanish? How the hell are the Brazilian people that speak Portuguese will get any support? Like my english is flawless... better then a lot of americans since i'm graduated... and now i will not be able to play because the game is going for some spanish comunity...
Bye Bye HoN...
^ hate soooo muuccchh your cockyness , but it's true, that is a great part of the frustrationYou think it is a social game and that is why you are low mmr. Some of us PROS are rated 1900 and play with people who know how to play and we don't need to talk about the latest Katy Perry Single. I understand the frustration with people who are leaving us better players.
You do realize a lot of Korean based players are English speaking citizens who are stationed or work as English teachers in Korea right? So they will no longer be allowed to play with their family members on the US servers.
Why can't you just be smart and ADD the option in the MMR queue server listing for Korea/BR servers? That would make a lot more sense than what you are doing now.
Out of the 900 games I have played I think a max of 10 have been interrupted by non English speaking speakers, and a majority of those are Thai or Philippines. It's really not worth it to fragment the community and you should seriously reconsider this.
Just add the new server options to the MMR queue instead of screwing over a ton of US/AU/EU born citizens.
Basically our main question is... Why is there going to be a IP Restriction?
Answers provided by S2:
-"More servers means better connections and experiences for everyone. With localized versions of the game into Spanish, Portuguese, and Korean, we can offer a significantly better gaming experience."
So why is there going to be a RESTRICTION for the regions? Why not make it as an option when going to enter the matchmaking queue? - Does not answer question.
-"We are going to be establishing better lines of communication to players in Latin America and Korea by offering native tech support and help desk teams who can keep them playing HoN when it matters most."
So the logic is, implement national tech support and ban international gameplay... Does not answer question.
-"The Korean and Latin American competitive gaming scenes are about to find out what Heroes of Newerth is all about. We will be better able to reach out to gamers on a global scale and foster growth in the HoN community. Gamers in both regions can expect localized tournaments and prize pools that will dominate some of the most emergent E-Sport markets in gaming."
Oh cool, the possibility of having tournaments with prize pools in other countries, great idea!. But wait a second, how does this support the idea of Region Restriction? - Does not answer the question.
- "Let's face it, HoN as a team based game is almost entirely decided by how well a team can communicate and effectively compete. By offering native support for Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese, the HoN experience is going to reach new heights for a lot of people."
(Notice that you repeat the idea of native support of the second bullet point, together with the idea of language provided in the first bullet point)
Oh cool, you added more language options for the game! But wait a sec, why don't you just make an update where you add options for languages instead of simply restricting by location? - Does not answer question.
- "Latin Americans in Mexico, Brazil, Peru, and over 20 other countries will be able to use their local currency to improve their HoN experience and in Korea it will be no different."
Pretty obvious that this also doesn't answer why there is a Region restriction instead of a update with an inclusion of options.
So, what I'm trying to say is... Why create a Region Restriction instead of simply implementing options for LA and Korea servers in the matchmaking process, along with language options, for every player indifferent of their geographical location?

As an American living in South Korea, I am extremely disappointed. I won't be able to play with friends from AU, US, or friends in Japan for that matter. Why is this community being further fragmented instead of simply giving people the option of where they want to play? Once this change goes live I will no longer be able to communicate with my teammates and will pretty much have to stop playing.

then have a big problem, and who spent money on HoN, will have lost all the money invested in you guys is that right?
much injustice because of half dozen players will be delayed without playing? That and really right? What is it?
ashamed of you
I'm not criticizing you, you are right to do so but not fair and I have no other hon and because of these idiots
ADM thinks some more and revise these details
thanks for attention
S2 is going back in time. Instead of uniting everyone, they are separating, it's exactly the opposite thing they should do.
So, as you said, I'm going to another restaurant. I feel lucky I have a Dota2 beta key. If you don't have one, go to Facebook and keep participating in their contests. Oh, when you are there, don't forget to go to the HoN group and undo the like. Reducing their promo is the best thing you can do right now.
