Version 2.6.4 Preview:
This week's batch of Heroes of Newerth changes and improvements includes a very special Community Collaboration Balance Patch, bringing another level of community-inspired content to the battlefields of Newerth. With the help of an extremely passionate group of HoN community members, S2's balance design team asked for changes that the HoN community felt needed the most attention and opened the floor to balance discussion. There are 30 heroes and 3 items going under the knife in patch 2.6.4 as we aim to realign the Heroes of Newerth experience with the core aspirations of the HoN community in mind.
Without further adieu, check out the list of Heroes and Items included in tomorrow's balance patch, along with a sneak peek interview with lead balance designer DOGKaiser about what it took to make this "Dream Patch" a reality.
Full patch notes featuring the myriad of changes will be available at patch time when Patch 2.6.4 goes live this Friday, June 1st.
DOGKaiser would also like to invite everyone to an "Ask Me Anything" session Friday, June 1st (tomorrow) from 13:00-15:00 EDT. You can submit your questions until 12:00 EDT (noon) tomorrow and follow along at http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...MA-w-DOGKaiser.

I hope there will be major changes to some of the heroes listed (Scout, MQ, Defiler comes to mind) instead of the patch being full of smaller changes. I do like the change on the javelin though. Most of all I just want a rework for

Custom Map Suggestion:
I don't like the fact that they will rebalance so many heroes at the same time. It feels like it would have been better to change a few at a time to see if it works or not. Good initiative non the less.
soo umm...Pickled brain? is it being added back to the side shop?
