its wasnt developed to be famous for public games lol.
thats mid wards just like they said.
thats specifically for the comp scene bros.
This might turn into something great. I'm just worried that this will lead to some certain heroes getting picked alot, because of the locking phase being before the banning phase.
Cool, how long you think til we get to watch the first tournament in this mode
S2 should do an exhibition match as well like the last time they upgraded the Spec UI
I can't wait
for all of the salty rage.
edit: for when this mode cuts some teams up. "Hey guys lock magmus he's the best" --> then other team picks it. ALL THE RAGE
Lots of you seem to be missing an important thing: You can only queue lockpick as a group of five!
Presuming the animation from the video is correct...
The thing to take away from it at the moment is first pick gets first pick in all phases and gets last pick, but the last pick is bound by the last 3 remaining from the lock pool. The team without first pick always gets the first two pairs.
Legion Hellbourne Blind Ban Phase 1,2 1,2 Lock phase 1 _ _ 1,2 2,3 _ _ 3 Ban Phase 1 _ _ 1 2 _ _ 2 3 _ _ 3 Pick Phase 1 _ _ 1,2 2,3 _ _ 3 Lock Picking Phase 4 _ _ 4,5 5 _
I think you might be able to screw Legion over as Hellbourne if you lock 3 really bad heroes, then pick 2 of their heroes they locked, which forces them to pick the last hero from your sabotaged locked hero pool. If that makes any sense... now I just need to find 3 useless heroes.
Looks like I'm getting my guys back into HoN. Best mode I've seen yet.
Looks epic S2, good way to revamp the comp. scene in HoN. I can see myself playing this with the Immortals.
the most interesting thing of lock pick mode is that
ALL LOW TIER HERO will suddenly appear in the competitive scene
because I can lock 3 rare/shitty hero and pick your locked good hero
finally forcing you to pick a unknown random hero
or both team doing the same trolling/interesting thing
then both team got at least 2 rare hero
although the usual case should be that 2/6 hero inside are good and 4/6 of them are rare
I can see so much rage are upcoming
S2 is really such a strong trolling company
and this highly increase the hero shown up in competitive matches

but if you see the lock phase sequence
LHHLLH <- you should understand it
it is not the case
If i am Legion and seeing you lock 2 "bad" hero
i will lock 2 more "bad" hero for you too
and see who have even worse hero
at least i have a good one
finally the usual case should be what i said previously
Seems very, very good and interesting idea on paper. We'll see if it works out well, gj s2
at least we have now 10 bans. sounds like a good plan
