    Artillery Changes!

    As many of you know, Artillery will be coming to Newerth on Friday! We're all very excited about his introduction and have been reading what you've had to say as well. As a result of your feedback, we've decided to make a small change.




    When Artillery is released, the "manly" avatar will be his primary look. This change was made as a direct result of your feedback. The mechanical avatar for Artillery is extremely cool but we understand that, for the aesthetic of the game, the human avatar should be the more prevalent of the two. Thus, the mech will be available as the Early Access Alt Avatar for Artillery starting on Friday.


    To help cement this change in the story of Newerth, here's some new lore for the introduction of the hero. Keep in mind that HoN takes place in the distant future of an Earth-like planet and thus, technology can be rediscovered from the past, which is the case here.



    He looked down at the gear that the Engineer had salvaged from the dig. It was amazing how much destructive power the Ancients could pack into something so small. He oiled the barrels of the gun, loaded the rockets in their launchers and strapped them down to his back. He lit his cigar and strode towards the battlefield. Let those demons have their electricians - they don't stand a chance against this new breed of soldiers raining death from above - Artillery!



    Thank you for being so passionate about HoN and we hope that you're as excited for Artillery as we are!

    Two things here.

    First, I realy really LOVED seing S2 is now trusting their community, listening to us, to our ideas, our complaints about what you bring us in updates.

    Thumbs up for that. Good Job xanderk.

    Second, I just don`t like this idea of gundam robots fighting kung fu pandas, pollywogs, and leggionaires... sounds so... disconnected.
    But, the changes at least made it acceptable. Not that I like it. Just accepted it.

    Thumbs down for that kinda lack of environment attachment.

    Anyways, positive update after all.

    Bad idea. If the sole reason was for the lore, then need we remind you that there are a ridiculous amount of heroes as Artillery is...

    I kinda like the mech version idea but if they made it more like the HoN style like chipper or what ever.
