Welcome to Avatar Shuffle #2
This contest gives the community a sneak peek at some of the awesome content that we're developing AND gives you a chance to influence when these new alt avatars come to the Goblin Shop!
Below, you will find four pieces of concept art for upcoming alt avatars! It is your job to vote for which one you want to see in the game. At the end of the contest, we'll tally up the votes and announce the winning concept art, which will then begin it's journey to become a part of HoN.
Once the winner is chosen, it is removed from the pool of concepts and a brand new one replaces it the next vote. This means that there's always a new piece of art to check out and vote for. Plus, if you're a huge fan of something that doesn't win, it still has a good chance of being voted in next time! This way, all of the pieces of concept art you see here will eventually be added into the game for everyone to enjoy.
Speaking of which, we'd also like to take this opportunity to give you all a little update on the winner of Avatar Shuffle #1-- Scorcher
, who was voted to become an alt avatar for Pyromancer. He's been in production for some time now and is getting near completion! In order to make sure he's recognizable as a Pyromancer alt avatar, there has been some changes to his look. Nothing major though! He has a staff now and has a little bit of red inside his blue flames. Please look forward to seeing him in action soon!
With all that said, here are your choices for Avatar Shuffle #2!
The first choice you have is one of the original pieces of artwork for Tempest. He's a lot more humanoid than the regular hero and has some really interesting touches that we feel would look great in game! If he is voted as the winner of this contest, this would become a new Tempest alt avatar.
Then we have a piece of art that harkens to times long past in Newerth. Before the current war began, our beloved Maliken looked a bit different and this concept illustrates that he wasn't always AS bad as he is now. If this is voted as the winner, it would become a new Maliken alt avatar!
The new piece to this edition of the Shuffle is this prickly looking fellow who reminds us of Parasite. We really liked his dark look and think that he would look fantastic in-game. Do you agree? If he's voted to be the winner, it will become a new Parasite alt avatar
And finally we have the Archmage. This is another piece of art that has been around for some time but we don't have a specific hero in mind for it! If this is voted to be the winner, we will determine what hero it is used for in a special way.
Which will you choose? Voting ends at 16:00 EDT on Monday, August 13th
so get in your choice and support your favorites! Hopefully, you'll get to see them in game soon.
