Do dots forums look like this too?? Why can't we just praise and enjoy our game in peace
I'd guess most of the people here who talk about Dota2 are old diehard HoN fans who eventually got disappointed how the game was/is handled (Spot on quote from Warchamp7: "It has been a horrible experience watching such a fantastic product fade into what it has become; a shadow of it's former self and a mere glimmer of what it had the potential to be."). Don't get me wrong, I'd be happy to see HoN proscene getting revitalized, it doesn't - however - mean that I'm delusional enough to think HoN is a) bigger game b) has more players or c) has better proscene.
It annoys me that there are ignorant people here who claim theres nothing wrong in HoN scene and everything is going well. To me, you are the people who's fault it is that this scene never gets any better. Unless s2 is being told continously that they need to shape up, I don't see how that would ever happen. Why would anyone better their product if they don't understand there's something wrong in the first place?
While Dota 2 undoubtedly and unquestionably has the bigger and more active competitive scene, Hon's player base (including average and peak activity) is still larger. Whether or not that might be because D2 still is in beta or not is a different question: but Hon still almost always has more people online.
the infantile discussion style here is pretty annoying tbh.
Ok. So if you leave a game, you are sent an AIDS needle. Additionally, you get +1 disconnect AND are forced to play as Kongor next game. You can't leave his lair, except when a rune spawns. You must run directly to the rune (still as Kongor) and guard it. If you do not do this, then HoN immediately shuts down and formats your hard drive and injects you with the AIDS needle.
i hope a mod comes and deletes all these hon vs dota2 posts. the argument is old, i dont care about YOUR opinion on either one as i have my own and its cluttering any info on novas return to hon. im trying hard to touch my pee pee thinking about nova but you guys are a big boner killer.
"X game is better than Hon for Y reasons!!" Yeah whatever dude.
Why do you bother with all the ****in Hon vs Dota 2 / LoL / whatever discussions? It's just mindless circlejerking that never reaches any conclusion.
Keep the fanboyism in their respective forums and stop clogging up the forums with this bullshit.
One of the main reasons I enjoy Dota 2 more at the moment is because there are competitive matches covered every day. And after watching an awesome Dota 2 game I just don't feel like playing HoN although I used to like this game more.
Playing mostly Dota 2 becouse it's competitive scene is bigger and coming on Hon forums just to tell Hon players that their competitive scene is smaller will not improve anything! Just talking about it and then going off to another game without actually doing anything about it besides writing a post will not help anyone at all!
You really want to help improving the competitive scene? Stop whining about it, stop comparing it to other games and start getting a team together! ZoNeX, if you feel like it, write a post to NoVa here - he's also from Germany and currently testing out new potential members for a highly competitive team. As for all others - go to the team recruitment forums and start getting your damn competitive **** together instead of whining about how HoNtour is a joke, how few pro teams exist in HoN and how S2 killed the comp scene. Do you expect S2 to come knocking on your door and kindly ask you if you could please put a team together? Do you need accurate HoNtour dates to start putting a team together and practice?
I mean common - it's not like football clubs are made just 2 months before the next international football league is announced; they are made years ahead and then they train and practice even though there is absolutely no matches in the next months, just so that they can be prepared for when the real matches start up. Same goes for e-sports.
But these variables dont matter. He said HoN has more players on at a time, its irrelevant to state that SEA is carrying it and servers this and that. Thats all wish-wash compared to what he said. It doesnt help that you said he was incorrect.
Person A: HoN has more players on at any given time
Person B: No you're wrong Southeast Asia carries it
That doesnt make sense and doesn't help at all!!
You can actually count that. Can I play with Garena players if i wanted to? No. So they are basicly not even playing my game, right? Its like they are in a different universe.
I'd love to play with a comp team so i could find out just how bad i am Nova, cutting out that idiocy, respect for your decision that takes balls and maturity two things usually lacking.
For dota2 vs HoN i'd easily call dota 2 the winner if they change the way the game plays from the 50% turtle matches, watching people get perfect CK's in an empty lane isn't interesting nor is it challenging, especially compared to some of the more complex skills required to be genuinely talented at a moba. For now however HoN bar the occasional match is vastly more interesting to watch than dota.
Are you stuck in the past? The meta has been heavy push/gank oriented for the last....8 months?
