Fayde was OP cause originally when you ulted she left an illusion in lane THAT STILL GAINED XP
So you hit 6, ult walked to bot or top while your illusion stayed mid meaning no missing calls AND NO LOST XP FROM LEAVING. And BAM fayde ganks side lane without losing a point of xp from mid and no missing calls.
I was never a Dev guy myself, but anyone remember backhooking?
(maybe it's time to bring that back..."omg this IS more fun than pudge!")

Look for my highlighted text (important information) and grey text (interesting but not required information).
Everyone forgetting the ORIGINAL broken hero; Magmus in verrrrrrry early closed beta
His stun lasted 2.15 seconds, allowing him to stun then ult an entire team without being stunned. The ult and stun also did alot more damage than it does now
Engi turret is still my favourite broken instance though, only time ive solo annhilated in the enemy well xD
speaking of which
the actual hero page is yet to be updated, but that's the list of changes got since its introduction.
the funniest one is still the ult bug.

Oh yeah, Fayde's invulnerability was spasticated. I dont think any hero has undergone as many changes as her.
Magmus and Kraken were the most fun back then. Kraken could charge then blink and bring someone back from half way across the map and they wouldnt even realise what the fk happened til they were dead.
I'm really suprised only one person mentioned devo backhooking. I know the hero has never been in competitive games, but that **** wrecked every single pub game for months, and unlike some of the stuff mentioned here, it wasnt a bug. It was an intentional buff.
well my recent memory tells me about .. mk doing like 800 dmg, silhouette being a ranged ursa (still is lol), mmm gemini "D" build, chronos agi steal being so mfing op, mmm other than that, oh and ... 40% all sides reduction arma derpherpderpderpderp
The alchemist bone stacking was the best thing ever done to HoN.
Fayde with 3sec. Immunity on Everything and Illusion that gained exp + 2 free attacks out of Invis without breaking it.
And i'm suprised no one mentioned deadwood, his roots debuffed -armor and his ult did ae dmg, you could oneshot entire teams.
Old engi > all
and panda when they put it into the game.

Beta chronos. He ate everything everywhere. Believe me. And yes, second broken hero was gemini with stats items. So OP.
Predator's ulti used to reduce 12 armor. The amount of rape was unprecedented.
Not super op or anything, but there was the barrel roll stun.
I also remember beta scouts ult being really strong? Cant quiet remember what was so op about it, but it was certainly very strong. Combined with his disarm lasting 2 seconds scout was actually pretty strong.
Tort was op for a very very long time, ever since they removed the huge cast time on his stun and buffed his bonds.
And anybody remember when Maliken's heal and damage sword used to cost like 8 mana per hit or something absurd. Completely destroyed mali for a bit haha
