  1. Hi, Ingame it says there will be an upcoming maintenance on the 18th of January due to the upcoming patch of 4.10.0.2. However, the patch notes are not available despite the news saying that they are!

  2. It's really simple. You see, there is a direct correlation between easiness of something and number of people using/consuming it. This is the way this world works. For instance, while you might be trash while playing HoN, I'm sure that you will feel like above the average player in LOL. FB tried to use this in their favor. When they introduced patch 4.0 in HoN, regular and top HoN players died or almost died from cancer. Our beloved game tried to be as stupid as LOL. I myself saw a 1600 player in these brand new "Legendary" bracket. FB just created the same illusion as LOL did. I do

  6. I don't think Garena cares and I don't know if the official devs are allowed to do that on their own. But I assume some people will try to reverse engineer enough to bring lan support back eventually. But sadly I'm not one of those that can/will put a lot of effort into trying that (I tried if it's possible the easy way, just via some commands, but that's about all I'm gonna do - I don't have any experience with reverse engineering anyways ).

  7. I wanted to make a post like this a while ago, but I think given the circumstances, now would be the best time. I'm not someone particularly notable. I've started playing the game back in closed beta and managed the Fandom wiki. I spent many hours to get it up to standard and kept it updated for a long time, even after I stopped playing the game. So I'd like to think I at least have some stake in the game. I haven't touched HoN in maybe like 3-4 years, and I stopped playing regularly years before that. The reason is not just because of the typical toxicity of players and how there are oth

  8. Recently I made a post, where I told you all to be ashamed. I had hoped that some people would take that as a sign, look inwards and maybe change their ways or personality in-game. How is it getting worse? Five games in a row now I have had zero chance to impact my game what so ever. They might not have been winnable regardless, but I had no impact. How is this going on so strong? The odds of me being unlucky here should be astronomically small. Right? The recent news should make us closer, make us appreciate the remaining time. Right? Why aren't we? Just imagine someone in my family gets

  10. Even though it hurts to say it, my interest in HoN has been dwindling over the past years, it sucks to see what you like slowly fade away and out of relevance. Although this monday was a sad day for me, and probably to all of you, there was some part of me that felt a relief. For the first time in a long time, im able to see HoN as all those good things it truly is. I've loved HoN Since the first day i played it, some 10 years ago now. But as time passed, HoN got increasingly difficult to love. I will not cite all the all the problems i've had with this game and all of you, but there are many,

  11. Definitely sucks that there's been so much negativity in and around HoN. For the majority of my stay I've just played casually with friends and those times have been an absolute blast. For a brief period when most of my friends had left and I started solo queueing, it really hit me how most players seemed to just not have fun. There's so much hate and negativity which I find hard to ignore unless I'm playing with friends. I found myself becoming increasingly negative as well, so I took longer and more frequent breaks. Today I pretty much only fuck around with like minded people and do whatever

Thanks to everyone who contributed, either with money or with their time, I have no regrets, if it were to volunteer myself for a similar or another HON project, I would gladly do it all over again! Congrats and good job to every single employee and volunteer that kept the game up and running, I will still be here till the end!

  16. This hurts... I remember getting my beta Key with some friends, going through our first "follow" match, buying the game for my birthday, spending hours and entire weekends playing nothing but HoN, I even have family videos where my children are messing around and you can hear HoN music in the background... It´s a feeling in between frustration/sadness/angriness. Nothing but good memories.

  19. Good thread! I wish for Santa to put ElementUser under the tree and give him the strength to keep working so hard on this game. I think Santa knows how thankful we all are for his hard work. And I am sure that if we all took the time to thank him once in a while, he would know how much we appreciate him and, if luck in on our side (looking at you, Blacksmith!) he will continue to stay with the game and then I am sure he will carry the game to where it belongs; in the heart of millions of people. It's already lodged itself deeply entagled in my veins that's for sure. So to ElementUser: Than

  20. I really dont like the notion of "nudging" players into what developers consider "intended" behaviour in game instead of having them explore the game on their own, creating their own meta. Yeah, his winrate will now be above 50% instead of around 50% but his actual ability to do different things will be diminished But its fine, I dont care too much xD and as you know we have so different views on this so just ignore me lol. I know its industry standard nowdays.

  21. You can file a ticket through the RAP portal if you don't see an option to appeal. Also, creating a topic with 20+ posts from all of your other accounts to make it seem like you have support from many other people (when nothing is further from the truth) does not make you look good. I'm expecting a deny on your appeal on that basis alone.

  22. The moment something better than dota 2 comes up, dota 2 will start its maintenance mode. It happened with all games, StarCraft 1, Warcraft 1 > 2 > 3, Diablo 1 > 2 then 3 was a trainwreck so 3 never replaced 2, only temporarily ( Path of Exile did replace it in the end ) - now there's Diablo 4 vs PoE 2 that will prob split the userbase. What I'm trying to say is - it's just the nature of the world, old gets either revamped or replaced with the new. In HoN's case, it was revamped for quite a long while until now unfortunately it's getting replaced. Idk if you can c

  23. Writing your name on an online petition with a relatively splintered and small community like this to a multi million dollar company is at best an ego trip and at worst a waste of time. Start an Open Source Project like people did with Savage 2 and start lobbying the executives/leaders in private while showing a positive front outwards if you actually care so much. Otherwise let the game die a dignified death or something.

  24. Dota slowness comes from animation style. Dota2 animation is more floaty and subtle. Hon animation is generally more pronounced and choppy.

  25. I fixed the first. I can't do anything about the second - it's just an intended interaction & you have to be aware of it if you go up against a Bubbles. I do not wish to make an exception just because the state happens to be beneficial for the opponent.

  26. In case steam would acquire HoN, they would like use hero assets for dota (as they already wanted in the past) rather than hosting the game on steam.. that would be just my guess. Data miners already found plenty of HoN's heroes on dota2 source code like zeph and puppet.. At least that's what I would do if I was working for steam.

  27. No. It's not as simple as pressing a button to do it. There's a reason why it wasn't brought back, as much as we wanted to : we lack the access to actually make the changes in the backend to bring this back. It will not be done because it can't be physically done.

  29. Can we bring the 3vs3 map to ranked, since HoN is shutting down anyways? I have some good memories on that map and want to play it if possible. And one more thing, is stat reset going to stay only to be bought with gold, or maybe it can be changed to silver, since no new accounts can be created? #HoNthebestMOBA

  30. Thank you for griefing less. Look forward to seeing you all in-game in the new year and if anyone wants to join at midnight I will be praying for covid-19 to disappear and also for the love of my life to stay safe during said times. Thanks in advance. Happy new year.

  32. No. The purposes & modals of each of those abilities are very different. There's no point in me debating with you about this, so I will close the thread.

  33. While I'm a very open-source person (and would like if HoN would be officially open sourced after the servers shut down), I disagree with this point: If HoN was open-source, we would have probably 20 forks already, which would divide the playerbase and we would have endless queue-times. Mod-ability is not an argument here either, because HoN for the most part is open-source and allows (client) mods for all (but tournament) games. Of course HoN could never die if it was open-source, because you could always just host your own 5v5 games whenever you like, but I think match making wou

  34. I think HON is the best moba too but they did too many dumb things. They allow too many trolls, if someone spams the chat and flames their own team the entire game, purposely blocks his own ancients with wards, and then rage quits half way through, that's perfectly o.k. I reported a guy for this and they responded back saying he didn't do anything wrong. If they want people to troll the game this way then how would they expect people to want to play? And why the heck would anyone want to pay for a game with this kind of garbage? So I'm not surprised at all this game is coming to an end.

  37. When HON and LOL were in beta, HON was more popular. Once they got released, HON had did on a 30$ tag and LOL on a "F2P" model. Most of the players switched to LOL then. Should HON have been released with the current F2P model, noone would remember LOL by now.

  38. How long have you been in HoN game community? HoN is the worst game community Ive ever seen, full of racism, cursing words and insulting language. What do you expect? This is human, HoN is the place for those society losers to release their darkest shadeness. Br, Rus, Aussie, black ..... they are all the insulted ones in HoN. Again, they really dont care whether HoN is going to shut down or not. They can find another game.

  39. It highly depends on who is the one who remembers. If you read through all the posts since the announcement of HoNs end (I actually read them all), you will realize that a lot of people will definitely remember good things about HoN. Sure not everything has been perfect and in retrospect a lot of things could have gone better and could have made HoN the top played Moba today. But it's always easy to point at what was wrong later. Similarly people will always point out what is bad and only rarely what has been good. Because they try to achieve an improvement by complaining. Usually people d

  40. Thanks to @ElementUser especially who never abandoned the sinking ship and he did all the amazing work, with balance changes and similar stuff. I wish you all the best in whichever direction you are about to go. Thanks to @HyperXewland Umbreon for keeping the HoN servers safe together with the DDoS protection that you guys made and made our gaming experience very good. Thanks to @hegelsohn@`Shattered@Narandea@Tommy@dav787@spylex and few others for keeping the peace via the RAP portal and banning a higher number of players than HoN's playerbase at it's peak. Thanks to @Lightwalk

  41. Yep, here i am, making my first forum post in almost 12 years... I am 35 years old now. When i started to play this game I was a university student with way too much time. Today I'm a husband & dad and still love to play almost every evening. I spent so much time with my friends in this amazing game and for me it was the best MOBA out there, with all its flaws. That beeing said, I also would love to say THANK YOU to the people who are responsible for keeping this game alive and in such a good shape until this day. I have no idea who you are, but im TRULY THANKFUL. This game alway

  43. if server costs, is really the problem, they would just allow people to run "private community servers" The problem with server costs, support tickets,toxicity, smurfing and grefing would end, very quickly. Because the community servers could make up their own rules. And you can enforce things like "application uptake" - meaning you have to apply in order to join a server Some of us own original copies of the game. Do we lop it into the trashcan ? we own copies a the game but not the "right" to play it ? typical 2022 I have hope though. There is a long time to June, a lot of t

  48. Hello guys I was gonna create a new topic but since this one is pretty close to the issue I will try here So I noticed that there are a lot of players who cannot be reported , when you try to press on their icon usually 2 options appear 1. Report Player 2. Ignore but there are players who when you try to report the "report player" option does not appear and can only be ignored I am assuming that is probably some kind of addon or what ever but it creates the feeling that these players can do what ever they want without consequences
