http://www.facebook.com/tdMeSportsLook at their page says this: Trademark eSportsHace 2 horasTrademark eSports has decided to part ways with our Dota2 team. We wish them the very best in their future tournaments!I did no know that TDM had a dota 2 team, so the hon team is now dota 2 team??omfg.
That doesn't mean that the hon team is going to DotA 2.
But TDM has not a Dota 2 team, can anyone explain me pls, I am confussed now, if I am in a mistake I am gonna delete this thread.
What's confusing, you even answer yourself, tdm had a dota 2 team that has nothing to do with hon team.
why would they switch to dota 2 when they qualified for dreamhon
Show me a link where is the dota2 team of tdm, I am searching but I can not find anything related to.
As predicted, HoN is slowly dying due to the incompetence of S2.
- No reason to get onto the forums and voice your opinion, if your opinion is based on absolutely nothing but mindless thoughts of a troll.
DreamHon came up and was a great success, Hontour will more than likely be an equal amazing success- from everything i've seen and heard, it looks to be amazing.
Trademark eSports dropped their Dota2 team; does this mean anything to the competitive scene in hon? - Yep, it means that a top organisation dropped a dota2 team, and not a hon one.
That makes you wonder, whether a top organisation is more interested in hon -> Dota 2.
I for one, is completly amazed about the work of the S2 employees, and the involvement all of the competitive players are showing in order to make the game grow in terms of both balancing, rulesets and tournaments.
To stay on topic - i think the "Keep teams untill payday, then ditch them right before they need us"-trick is getting really old.
We've seen it oh so many times that organisations promise their teams so much, yet they back out right before they're needed.
Is HoN dying? No. I'm currently enjoying HoN as much as I did in beta. S2 is turning the ship in the right direction, and for a small indie company they're doing just fine.
If you think my choice of typeface is awkward then yes, I agree. The reason for this is fundamentally thay S2 never intended HoN or it's forums to be for Mac users, and hence I have to first login to the forums, write my text that I intend to post, copy + paste it, and then login a second time before actually being able to post it. This process changes the default typeface. Cheers
1 year ago Rea placed second in dreamhack. Fierce competition indeed.

Razer signs everyone. They really do. They give you hardware at best, nothing else.
Big organization think before sending their team to a LAN.
Let's say you got a LAN with 10k pricepool for 1st place.
Sending 5 people across the world is probably like.. 6-7k.
Now how high are their chances of winning the tournament?
Sometimes it's just not worth it for bigger organizations.
One big tournament = teams practice 2 weeks before it, play in it and then go play something else because there's no more tournaments. Multiple smaller tournaments happening frequently = generating a competitive scene, also nice for viewers.
I would agree tho that if Hontour comes out one day it would have the power to revitalize the competitive scene because it is made of smaller tournaments but there is more of them.
The HoN scene is not as active as the Dota 2 or the LoL scene, but it's far from dead. You can't say it's not alive when we have DreamHoN coming up, or the TIG tournaments, if nothing else.
It's not even a 10th as active as it was during the beta days even
And of course it shouldn't be as big as the LoL scene... but considering HoN still has many more players than Dota 2, it should at least compare to its competitive scene. But it doesn't even come close. Wanna know why? Because all the sponsors have been driven away, and there are no team sponsors left, no teams left and no tournaments left.
