    HoN vs LoL, a marketing standpoint

    HoN Solicitor
    "Hi there, are you a gamer who's tired of strategy games that start you on uneven footing? Are you looking for a competitive yet casual RTS experience where you can play with up to 9 other people at once? Do you like building your own personal skill rather than rely on items gained over the course of a lifetime of repetitive farming? Well, look no further because our game offers all of that, and is completely FREE! You may preorder the game to get some cosmetic bonuses to your name, but all players start off equal in every game!"

    "Hi there little boy, do you know where your mom's purse is? Just wait till she falls asleep and dig around in there till you find a card with little numbers on it. The one that says Mastercard or Visa works best, but we'll even take American Express! Don't worry, we'll only take a little money at a time so mommy will never find out! Even if she does, she'll probably just think your sister did it. Isn't that funny? We can get your sister in trouble together! Now give me those numbers you little bastard!!! Oops, I mean lets get you started in one of the most complex, awesome, UNIQUE games you will ever play! Fun fun fun! There's no one else with a game like ours, yup! We're the first anf only one to have a game like this. Uh oh I think I hear your mommy waking up, wait till she's gone again and we can finish getting your account set up! If you do it I'll be your best friend!

    You assume HoN isn't a farming game.

    I see "hurr my gaem iz butter than urz durr" with some crappy analogy thrown in. Also trolling on home ground isn't a great feat.

    HoN isn't free. This is beta.

    The HoN one is subtly over the top, and the LoL one is in your face over the top. Both are terrible.

    Eh it was arite, you forgot the quotation marks at the very end though.

    But consider these points. Would you like the LoLerskaters making those sorta biased bashing threads about HoN? Theres a good chance you dont care, but lets hope you do.

    Why not let our community being the ones taking the high ground first? Its pretty nice up there. Imagine if your joke was so funny that both sides of the fence could enjoy it? Rather than just being the random quasi-funny bashing it is.

    We are all gamers man, we are even enjoying the same genre. They want to take their game in a different direction, why not let them? Must everything be tailored to your specific taste and needs? You arent the centre of the universe, no matter what mommy told you.



    Empathy mother****er, do you have it?

    tldr: When will the gamer on gamer violence end :/

    EDIT: Just for clarification purposes, im not saying that there doesnt exist gamers that dont deserve that title, but you should leave the persecution of those individuals to the pros.
