There’s only a few days left to enter the “Are You a Hero” contest and it’s easy to do it! Just make a short video of yourself talking about what makes you a hero and why you love HoN. Then follow the instruction in the post linked above (and here!) and you’re entered. Easy way to make some gold coins!
Our Alt Avatar Contest is in full swing! We’ve already had some awesome ideas from the initial entries but we want more! Follow the link above and contribute your crazy avatar ideas to have a chance to have it put into HoN.
Halloween is approaching and we want to see more pumpkins and costumes submitted in the Creative Continuum! Anyone who submits a winning entry to the Halloween portion of the contest, will win a special prize in addition to the usual Continuum prize! Get to it!
And don’t forget that the other two categories are still open for submissions!
In our last patch, we unleashed some new coin bundles geared towards offering the community more options when they’re buying Goblin Coins. Afterwards, you gave us tons of feedback on the new packs, specifically noting that the coins per dollar on the $50 and $100 bundles weren’t quite right. As a result, we’ve improved those bundles and credited the extra coins to anyone who purchased them previously. Thanks again for your feedback!
It’s time to add some new HoNored Posters! This time, we welcome Aizen` and Syth` to the group. Both are very well known on the forums and we’re happy to give them the recognition they deserve. Make sure you congratulate your fellow community members!
