  4. I'll spare you the paragraph about my HoN history and go straight to the point. Create a subscription of 5 bucks a month where the subscriber has: - Monthly access to all skins and game stuffs purchasable with silver. - Monthly access to unlock all past game feature events, all the limited time skins and whatnot. - A higher silver reward per match so we can spend them in non-skin stuff - 5-10 plinko ticket per day - RAP ticket priority You may create an in-game poll and a forum poll (I've used the forums some 20 times in the past 10 years, so not a lot) and see if people would

  7. This game is basically all about 2 things: 1. Obtaining resources (gold for items, EXP for level-up/abilities/stat boosts) - You can accomplish #1 by killing things (heroes, towers, creeps). - If you die, you will very negatively impact this goal! Do not ever die! 2. Controlling the map/field. - You can accomplish #2 directly by using Ward of Sight/Ward of Revelation. These directly help give you vision of areas of the map you can't see. The more you can see the more you can know. - You can also destroy enemy structures/towers to reduce their vision and base size. If a tower is destro

  8. What I mean is when can we expect a FULL Staff back at HoN? Is Garena still running this game? When so can we expect awesome cool avatar sets like the return PARAGON and these sick ass events. I mean what we currently get "HD avatars" of the same thing is better than nothing but when can we expect those cool events with 8 bit sets, Flex and a new ALUNA SKIN Can you imagine how good these new skins would look with the new technology available today? Also what about a Mid Wars map make over something about the artstyle of this game is really boring compared to DOTA 2 or LoL

  9. It's 100% a situational pickup and can theoretically work for any hero, but the downsides are the gold spent & the item slot consumed for pure defensive purposes. It is aimed towards heroes with important teamfight spells (e.g. Behemoth, Riftwalker, Engineer, etc.) that find themselves initiated on often throughout the game. Or...maybe, you're a key target for the opposing team because of your player name & renowned skill level on a particular hero & they make it a point to gank you the whole game and you just need to live long enough for backup to arrive/get away. It is

  10. I think that the pinging system helps just about anybody convey very quickly to the team what they are thinking, or if they need help (especially if they are unable to speak English). I think a ping requesting to ward/counterward would be a great addition to the HoN ping system. It would also be great potentially for mentors training someone new with ward pings to help teach spots and the like. Maybe this could be added to the ping wheel? Regards, Etans

  11. You can think of it that way, but that's because you saw HoN as perfect back then and you didn't want change. If HoN literally did not have any changes since about 2 years ago, I don't think the player base would really be around anymore. It's 2 sides of a coin - change will keep things fresh enough without fundamentally changing the game and will keep players interested. No change may mean the game is more stable to those few people, but the game dies way faster if left stale for a long time. You may not understand the side of change and leads you to how you see things. I ma

  12. Avatar set effects must be optional. It may be a button where we can activate or deactivate for each effect in vault game vanity/upgrades section or a new section. For example i want all black legion avatars but i don't like the effect which appears under the hero when i got all of them. So i don't buy the last one.

  13. It's really sad when talented players leave or crap on their teammates because they feel entitled to the highest quality standard in a matchmaking queue. I can tell you your lack of humility and respect (which is earned but it doesn't excuse you being a garbage person) is going to bite you in the arse at some point in your life, maybe then you'll have matured. Though I can understand that this community inspires the worst by enabling really shitty people, I genuinely hope you strive for something better than that at least on principle.

  18. If you really think that people in the internet actually care about your opinion, you are really wrong my man. The problem of the HoN community is other issue. We can see that you are part of that problem, cause you want the things be like you want, and let me tell you something, that is not how games works. You think a balanced item that boost mgc damage is just broken, cause your brain cant work properly. Is a expensive item, if a Pyromancer got Shard+PK+Grimm, it means that he got the lead, if he got lead, that mean that he plays better than you or he's lane opponent. I mean he spend lot

  23. Twilac did a update to make the script work with newest version of Blender ( 2.92 ), you guys can download it here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/fsirnd9czk7tvkh/K2-Blender-master_%282%29.zip/file But some problems must be fixed The model is twisted into the thigh bone when imported animation ( just some, not all ) UV Map is messed up: Hope someone have time to fix these issues, I contacted Twilac and he said it's time wasting cause he also had his personal problem and other projects

  24. No one knows what will happen. Right now things look pretty stable. Even thought it was announced that there wouldn't be content or balance changes a while back, they are still happening. Patch schedule got slowed down though, so new patches are released only every other month. Additionally there were no new heroes in quite some time, only small reworks of existing heroes. So it's probably a good guess to assume that it will stay that way for the foreseeable future. About who "owns" the game: That would be Garena. People that are running the show for NA/EU are however all (I guess?)

  25. Likely outdated, however you are free to provide up-to-date screenshots/evidence if something changed. IIRC we change our Silver multiplier quite often. Regular multiplier is 2x (current is 5x because of the event). Those screenshots likely have a 1x multiplier.

  27. Sounds like you remember slighly wrong. The "premium accounts" were not purchasable after that system got introduced. Everyone that bought the game before they made it free to play, had such a premium account and no one could buy one after it. However back on topic: Buying individual items that stay forever increase the value and emotional binding to your account. Any kind of subscription model doesn't. Their goal is to generate some revenue and never get people back again. Think about this: If you bought into the subscription model now, played hard for next few month and maybe got a

  29. Add +100 ping to russians in EU servers like for real, nobody needs to see empty text spam or hear moronic laugh + non-undestandable jiberish and insults on voice chat. Actual team-play doesn't even exist anymore because of this... i for example am forced to mute/ignore my entire team not too long after creeps spawn or even in lobby. Really every game 6/10 people are russian. Why are there Ru servers if they are playing in ours, it's not even Europe, that's Asia over there.

  30. I like Alaska’s Q and E. His E is basically the same as Gillegard’s E. The W doesn’t seems to be much different from Guantlet’s hooking ability(correct me if I’m wrong). Finally the R seems generally misplaced to me and isn’t much different from Flux’s ultimate to be honest. Trojan seems fun(all-round) and intricate to play. He also gives me Oogie vibes.

  31. So some slight clarification I have to make: Since our last event (HoNmas 2020), the Silver Multiplier was permanently set to 2x the original value. In this event, it is actually set to 5x the original value. Not 5x relative to what we normally set it at. So technically it's still correct, it's just that our measure is always relative to the base/original value, not the value players are used to getting outside of the events (these 2 values are difference). For the sake of consistent maintenance by our very small team, we will continue referencing the base/original value and wri

  32. This is likely due to the ahead-of-time change for Single Draft -> Balanced Random for Mid Wars. I'll revert the change & it'll be Single Draft for this patch. There should be no further issues now. If there are, please re-login.

  33. Editing hero.entity file looks correct. At least for now. However, I still don't understand why you are copying the following 2 files: <copyfile name="heroes\hammerstorm\model.mdf" overwrite="yes" /> <copyfile name="heroes\hammerstorm\preview.mdf" overwrite="yes" /> These files are not used because you changed the paths to them in the hero.entity file: <find><![CDATA[model="model.mdf"]]></find> <replace><![CDATA[model="alt3/model.mdf"]]></replace> <find><![CDATA[previewmodel="pre

  34. What I mean is some heroes will obviously be used more than before at the expense of other heroes falling off the meta. Some heroes that are already strong will become stronger and some heroes that are niche will become weaker within that niche. So some tradeoffs are actually biasing instead of counterbalancing.

  36. Hi everyone! I want to gather some feedback about the program. Recently I got myself familiar with .honmod and a new updated HoN Mod Manager, so I have an idea of maybe making a prebuild version of all avatars compatible with the Mod Manager (e.g. .honmod files instead of resources.s2z). This way each avatar could be downloaded separately and set using the manager. I just want to know which way is more convenient for most of the users, current (using the PowerShell module or a separate UI that will be added later) or Mod Manager (existing UI, but each avatar needs to be downloaded separately).

  37. Hello! This would be the place of dreams! IF the alt you request is chosen to be on sale in the store and said alt has a silver price to begin with, the alt will be available with a reduction on the gold price, but also available for full silver price. In your case I do believe that Daemon Dragoon EW goes for 4500 silver. however if it's added to the plinko redemption cycle, then it's tickets only. Regards

  38. This. Not 0mmr but 1250 like it used to be. One of the biggest problems this "season" is that even with 6 losses you get silver rank. with 2 lucky wins you get gold rank. So all the bronze players are suddenly 300mmr above their skill level, which is not fun for them or their teammates. Just make it as it used to be: Start at 1250 in placements with a max of 1750 (or keep it 1700 thats fine).

  41. 1st of all i played hon since 2011 but not permanently, i had like a few months breaks each year and playing for a few weeks/ months and then having a break again. Last time i played in 2020 autum and i recently play hon again 3 days ago bcuz of the youtube scumbagnetwork 5 top videos, i thought like "yee why not"? And the reason why not is here: i played like 34 games at gold 2-diamond 3 rank and the result/ expierence were terrible hon was NEVER in such a bad state of my 10 years of hon gaming. 1. Ya the old "racist" russian issue each months/ year i encounter more and more russians in

  42. I recently started to play again and agree with most of the things you said. It is super rare that I see a Russian player who calls a lane and picks a hero that goes with the team. %90 of the games I played in the last two weeks, they just go random, write something which we can't see as cyrillic alphabet appears blank, they troll or even if you called a lane, they just pick a hero for wherever they wanna go, ignore your call and invade your space, ruin your game experience. Unfortunately RAP system doesn't cover this, but this is completely feeking up all the joy I can get from the

  45. I think the biggest issue with restrain is the counter play offered. For example, a prisoner's ball can be killed in 1 second that you're not running with AA+hatchet, a puppet master's strings still gives you some room to play in and if you were next to trees to begin with you can juke a second or two out of it. A predator's 2 seconds is nice for the pred, but it's not catastrophic unless you were in a bad shape already. But I find when I'm facing a berzerker he gets with a level 1 spell a 6 second restraint while he sees me and I can't juke, which is horrible early game as a suicide

  47. In the future yes, technically speaking, linux already has a 64-Bit client, but it is pretty outdated at this point and uses very old tech, it makes it a bit tricky to make a "super client" (??) when technically the architecture already exists, if we can find a way for it to make sense, we'll do it. Updating Linux to new standards is also very easy, which isn't hard to imagine
