    I had some thoughts on getting a crew together to make a tournament specifically for teams we could invite from the DotA realm, to steal more teams for HoN, but that's a thought for later XD

    I wanted to thank S2 games for their support, as well as SteelSeries. We will also be holding a tournament for the launch. Our launch tournament will be open to 64 teams that sign uo. News will follow in March.

    I want to wish the 16 Invited teams the best of luck, and I personally look forward to seeing some of these great matches.

    When you are seeking to win and on the attack, a failure is nothing but one less victory, but when you are playing defense, a failure is defeat

    I'd like to confirm People Of Luzon's participation in this tournament.

  11. #11
    since kaution disbanded the clan I dont think they will play.

  12. #12
    How come dop aint in? they are better than alot of teams i bealive.

  13. #13
    Yeah I just heard got a second letter from Kaution that said they wouldn't be playing and I wasn't sure why.
    TeL just disbanded as well, so potentially two alternates will be moving in.

    I will start forming a ranking of alternates based on PSR and move them into spots accordingly.

    Also, dates have been updated to reflect the news from S2 that they will not go OB this week as originally planned.

    Umm, maybe a stupid question but. Are we (vVv) putting in our own team into this tournament?

    Very promising tournament. Team WHP and the hon community would like to thank vvv gaming for hosting this tournament to promote such an awsome game (go hon).

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to confirm my team, but I would like to confirm Team We Heart Pigs' participation in this tournament.

    No, it was a choice by the vVv staff that we concentrate first on the successful execution of the event before having to worry about a teams performance in it, or having to worry about accusations of favoritism or anything shady. And of course since part of the criteria for invitation was tournament participation, and our showing in the majority of the events was slim, I wouldn't feel right having us as an invite.

    We will however have members involved in spec positions to keep an eye on matches in case we need to be alerted of any on the spot judgement calls or rule enforcement.
