    Also, What the **** were S2 thinking with these Eye nerfs?
    This change actually says that it does take lots of skill to play support and we don't want someone to be able to buy a bound eye and simply sweep all the wards that a support took time and effort to effectively place.

    The eye nerf is actually a nerf to countering skilled supports.

    Item Chests

    - Items you own on the ground in a Chest are now invisible to the enemy players
    - Chests now have a new larger glow effect to make them easier to spot
    - Chests with items owned by your team are now visible through fog at all times
    can someone explain better?Really i am confused

    They also have a new big glow/beam effect on them to make them easier to see. The old effects were very subtle and people could miss the items on the ground.

    The last change makes it so that you can always see items you own no matter where they are on the map. If you drop an item in the enemy jungle and leave it there, later in the game you can find it by looking in the enemy jungle and still see your item there through fog. It doesn't give any vision, just lets you see itself.

    I hope that helps.

    I ask because I can see someone buying, say, a tengu or mana pot, and setting it on a ward spot, and having an uncounterable rune ward the entire game, if they actually give any vision at all.

    Good question CrankyBuddha. The item doesn't give any vision at all. Only the item itself is visible through the fog of war and give no vision on anything else (such as the rune, even if its sitting right on top of it)

    EA Models

    Hey guys, actually the Debut Edition avatar for Sir Benzington is Sir Terrowin (Goblin avatar)! It is only available for a limited time and is very similar to the old EA model!

    Wards of Revelation

Revelation Wards are brought back with the new lane dynamic change since there is no longer a large enough reason to have them removed. Being worth some gold now helps with the ward battles.
    - Two can now be purchased at the start of the game
    - Now worth 25 gold when killed
    - You can now see the radius around Neutral camps that would block respawns when you're placing a ward (Both Wards of Revelation and Wards of Sight)

    Copy Pasting whatever S2 admin typed

    So my question will be , wouldnt it significantly affect the impact of junglers ?

    Ex : Support can just buy the 2 ward of reveal to block camps , oppo has to either re-route to the opposite jungle to start off with , or wait for their support to counter ward it . Ward of revelation spawn(rebuy spawn) is shorter than its duration , so supports can literally spam them to block the camp in early game/early laning phase ( whatever its called ) to screw up the junglers like warbeast etc and force them to go for hard camp at level 1.

    Edit : Getting a Ward of Revelation (100) to counter another Ward of Revelation(25 if you kill them) doesnt really sound appealing to supports/whoever bought the counter wards

    Answers / Explanations would be much appreciated . Trolls are advised to f off .

    Thank You

Keep in mind however, with the new radius shown around the Neutral Camps, it will also be easier for the Jungler's team to counter ward these blocked pulls. If the 25g incentive isn't enough for a Ward of Revelation, then go after a Ward of Sight, a much better investment and denial of vision.

However, only consumables and shareable items that are dropped can be seen by enemies. The rest are invisible to enemies." Does that mean if you have a Ward of revelation that you can see and destory the dropped items?

    No, you cannot see the items dropped by the enemy team even with a ward of rev.


    Pebbles Group Chuck and 50% bonus Silver Coins

    Frist of all, congratiulations on patch 3.1, i really like it. Alot of heroes and items are changed. That was a hard work huh?

    Now, lets get to the point. I played yesterday with a friend game with pebbles, he is awesome on 3.1, Staff of the Master is added that is great!
    Now he can chunk up to 3 targets BUT i need to use R for that. I used to blink,Q,W so somehow when i do it in hurry i do not use R when i got Staff of the Master.
    So can you replace Chunk with 3 people chunk when you get staff?
    Or maybe this is a bad idea, because sometimes i dont want to do 3 people chunk but still..

    ------------------------------------------------------
    So guys what do you think about it? Good or bad idea?
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Oh and by the way, i didnt recived like 50+ silver coins from yesterdays 3-4 games. Not much, but still i want to buy name color Will that be fixed soon?

    Kind regards!
    The idea is as you mentioned. We want to give people the opportunity to use the original combo, with its original feel(q+w), then give the option (really fun option at that) to use the 3 person chuck when you upgrade to the staff of the masters. Yes, this may be a tad different than most are used to but it was the best way that we found to both, keep the original feel of the combo and add in the new 3 man chuck!

    As for the 50% silver, the first few games yesterday were not giving them out so we found the issue and had the silver retroactively added to your accounts. If you believe that you still haven't received the silver than email support@s2games.com and they should be able to help you out.


    Pubtraining?

That is the one unique thing that I really liked about HoN is how important the creeps actually were unlike LoL or Dota2. I just felt i had to speak my mind I know a lot of people would agree with me.
    Quoting myself from a previous thread:

    If your team is losing due to snowball the most likely outcome is that you are worth 5*your level more gold. Hero kills were worth between 205-325 gold, after the patch you are worth between 210-450 +100 if you reach 50% extra gpm. Casual mode hero kills are worth between 410-650 +200 if you reach 50% extra gpm.

    Many ganking heroes were buffed in this patch, along with the rune of refreshment added, and experience for hero kills which will also increase ganking. This something definitely on our radar if the game has gone too far in favor of ganking. And if it's determined that the game has gone too far it will be toned back.


    MORE TO COME....
