All free heroes -> New players; Range indicators -> New players; Core Pool -> New players; Bots -> New players; Mentoring -> New players; Death tips -> New players.
Aside from those you have lock pick for competitive players and mid wars just for the lolz. What about the rest of the community?
From what it looked like, it was basically normal AP with less heroes? That's not enough, the pool itself should be strictly limited to prevent 5-carry teams, and by doing so show new players how much more effective a balanced team with all roles are.
Decent try, but you could have done so much more.
the is by far, the worst idea conceived by S2 so far. You've outdone yourselves this time, congratz -.-
MOBA is silly, and I love how I got on this thread by trying to link to the death thing....good stuff
I love this idea but I think it could've been better implemented. I think we should be able to play other game modes besides a "All Pick" in regular Match Making and a "Blind Ban" in Mid Wars with the 40 heroes pool. That's why I tried to suggest something to make it more versatile but I'm sure it could be improved.

√(rope) = string
What i see is that LoL has millions of players and Hon has less then 100.000 ... to be honest, hon is way better then LoL, but, with this idea, you won't get more players!
I don't play core pool because i'm a veteran and i want to have the full hero list.
Make an impossible bosses mode please!
Use the models and change the heroes abilities for this mode!
2 tanks - Moraxus + Legio
3 healers - Demented + Rhapsody + Nymphora
5 dps - Artesia + Forsaken Archer + Glacius + Hammerstorm + Master of Arms
Or 5 players
Kongor as final boss
3 levels of difficulty
I don't like the new game mode... seems unoriginal... and uninspired. Put your back into something different. S2 built a great platform but still has to release game modes that really change the way we play the game. Instead of making another valk avatar, figure out different ways for us to play this game. There are so many unexplored possibilities that I've read in the forums, ranging from arenas to survivals, that I can't understand why you would come up with Core Pool...
the only thing I don't like about it is that it divides the player base even more.
I think this is good. HoN's hero pool is one of the reasons I stopped playing. Having old picks makes for a more interesting style imo.
can't we get a random pool for every match ?
repeating the same one is kinda boring
Or at least, that's how I understand it due to my upbringing. Certainly, a "few" doesn't cover the massive range of heroes added to the game since closed (or even open) beta. I'm sure people can agree on that.
Furthermore, the game has modes that weren't available back then (Mid Wars for starters, games of which have been going on in Public Games since before the game went F2P, nevermind F2O), maps that weren't available back then (I remember Grimm's Crossing being implemented, heh) and items that weren't available back then.
I don't understand how the game can be at all the same, even disregarding the multiple client enhancements, GUI redesigns and ingame overhaul(s) to graphical fidelity and ease of use.

This mod works really great with casual but doesnt seem to be needed in normal mode.
