    Question Hon Madness

    It's now demented vs. Witch and Ophelia vs. Balphagore.
    http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/fo...51-HoN-Madness

    And everyone says "this poll is not needed, Ophelia and balph is the real vote" etc. etc. blah blah. All this ****. And I don't get it. I mean, I know, An alt avatar for Ophelia is wanted for a long time, same goes for balph. And Demented and witch already have one. But now seriously, who actually can play a pretty decent ophelia. I mean cmon...Ophelia is really only good if you can play her really really really well. Later you all will get this alt avatar and then realize "OH **** I suck at ophelia actually there are way better picks than this hero" or "is not picked up often." And then...yeah what then Is everyone really for Ophelia Alt because you can play her very well or just because it has no alt for a long time? (Why did puppet lose then?)

    It's cool if balph or Ophelia would get an alt, but...don't say that the other poll is not needed. I mean cmon...witch and demented!!! WTF!!! Other sad thing is that only like 2% of all the HoN Members use the forum. And the forum users probably all know about the facts with Ophelia not having an alt for this long time. If the vote could be done via HoN client without entering the forum, I think Ophelia would not even be in the half-final vote because 90% of HoN community thinks Ophelia sucks. Same goes for balph
    Edit: I lol so hard if witch or demented will win

    S2 could put a voting ability in game... Who knows, maybe they only really care about what people who care enough about the game to go on the forums think about it.

    I wouldn't worry too much about Ophelia and Balphagore! We're still working towards having an alt avatar for these heroes, regardless of the results of the contest.

    Well I'm saying that we were going to work on alt avatars for those heroes anyway. The contest is just a fun way for the community to pick one!

    and how is the winning avatar supposed to be different than the regular ones? I assume you have the database of people that voted for the hero, how about giving it for free for anyone who voted at all / voted X times / voted for the winning hero in the final round? I assume this would make the avatar somehow special for the community.

Now, after thousands of votes, we're down to the final two heroes! The hero that comes out on top will receive a new alt avatar.... that will be determined by the community via an Alt Avatar Contest!

    Ophelia and Balph would never made it this far if you mentioned this beforehand.

    Was this not known? We've always had that approach. I would hope that people voted for those heroes because they enjoy playing them and want a new avatar.

    I thought it was common knowledge how this poll worked, but the way heroes who got recent alts just dropped off tells otherwise.

    no ofcourse it was known, that is why the least played hero in the game and considered boring by most is winning the competition.

    I think the real question here is : would balph have made it that far without Ismael's pro-balph propaganda?
