What i really appreciatte is that it seems that HonTour will also work as a scrim finder for many new teams.
I hope lots of players get encouraged by this and keep getting better and having fun :I
@MB: Glad to know you are im, Wish you and BX3 luck
im kinda sad that many of the community players that claims for tourneys dont man up enough to sign in this kind of open tournaments
Am I the only person that read this as a $ 10 000 and the rest of HoNtour is TBA?
It's actually 250,000$ in cash AND prizes, not just money.
It's good to have some real informations, but it'll probably not come this month then. In my opinion, it's better to say things (even if it means you were wrong in the past because, well... it's gonna be obvious anyway) than being just silent.
Thank you for the update. I think the entire competitive community would love any ounce of info you can give us, whether it be positive or negative. Negative news is better than no news at all quite frankly.
Lets just hope that this is not the only announcement that they will do in the next few days
I like this info, even though it's somewhat vague. It's info at least.
In general I like the more active approach towards the community that we've seen the last few days. I hope this is something permanent, it makes me more interested :-)
its 5 or 4 divisions. i dont remember it right...
might be 120kUSD for the pro division and the rest will see...
It's a great structure for a tournament for sure. Only real concern I have is simply that this game just doesn't seem competitively viable anymore. I wish they had some stable tournament version without the 10,000,000 new unbalanced heroes running around in it. All they need to do is host HoNtour on a client that removes every hero created since Myrmidon, which was (in my opinion) the last well rounded and well-thought out hero they made. Obviously not gonna happen, but one can dream. But nevertheless, it's nice to see something.
Of course there are balance issues, but this "omg S2 heroes" thing is so overplayed.
Be glad they're even communicating with the community. Now instead of trying to start a stir, sit back and wait for the HoNtour announcement. Whether or not it comes out this month or next month, you arent a competitive player, therefore it wouldnt concern you anyways. I've always wondered why everyone cares SO MUCH about the HoN competitive scene. If you don't play this game as a job, then don't worry about its competitive scene.
For the same reason non athletes don't want an NFL lockout; because we are FANS and want to WATCH competitive players PLAY. I know it might be hard to understand but people outside of the pro players watch the matches. Concerning with the ontopic, I just took away from it a fancy 'Soon' nothing more nothing less
I just wish they'd really think about the subtleties of their hero creation, S2 have made some very clever, well-rounded and skill-intensive heroes, to name a few of my favourites; Myrmidon, Puppet Master, Nymphora, The Dark Lady, Chipper. I just wish they would take the time to think hard about the concepts of their heroes, and what they're really trying to do with them. The bottom line at the moment is just fueled by wanting to get the next early-access hero out into the game. Anyways, this is mostly off topic, I just really really miss competitive HoN from back in the day, would love more than anything to see a tournament without all the bizaare heroes S2 has diluted the hero pool with.
