  1. The marketing donations page has been sitting stale on 16$ ever since it was added. I'm tired of this mentality that has been seeping into HoN ever since 2014 that HoN is dying. Things die in life if you let them, if you support them and nurture them they rise and thrive. I see so many players passionate about HoN, that want it to live. Why not show it? Marketing is an intangible goal that is difficult to connect to, it's not like server stability or MacOS port that are understandable and relatable. However, Marketing is crucial to any business success - a good business, a bad business, a thri

These heroes have been disabled until further notice: Adrenaline Amun-Ra Apex Bombardier Calamity Deadlift Draconis Gemini Goldenveil Grinex King Klout Kinesis Lord Salforis Master of Arms Midas Nitro Oogie Parallax Parasite Ravenor Riptide Salomon Silhouette Skrap Solstice Tarot Xemplar Th

  4. 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

  5. I remember my first game in Heroes of Newerth. My friend told me "Hey man listen there's this cool new game that came out and I have a beta key for you". I was like - ok let's give it a shot; so I chose Deadwood - and got completely owned. But you know what? I didn't really care. I didn't care because I could walk through the god damn trees. I was a giant undead tree, walking through trees - and that was my first experience in HoN, and the reason I kept coming back ever since. Most of the time we don't think about it, but we should stop from time to time to appreciate the beauty that is i

  9. Unofficial update: Garena has a national holiday on the week of October 5, so we are aiming to have the patch on the week of October 12 (though it could be later in the month depending on their team's scheduling). However, this has yet to be confirmed, but now there is an ETA. Once I get official confirmation from Garena, I will make an official announcement of the actual patch day. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

  10. For the next patch, one of the changes I made is to make the return damage partially ignore the damage reduction given by armor and magic armor. This should resolve your concerns while also not introducing the problems caused by past iterations of the item.

  12. Hello players from South America, Through negotiations and removal of some unused servers, I was able to convince Garena (our parent company) to get a permanent BR server that is physically in Sao Paulo (Brazil), on the International NAEU Client. Congratulations - for the players in South America, please let me know how the performance is on them. Starting from the time I made this message, all games on the BR servers are now on the permanent one. Thanks!

  16. Can you give me an estimated date for the linux client? I play HoN since many years and this is the first time you left me out. I have even donated for a 64bit client and winter map but right now i can't even play at all. Additionaly, there is no information about the dysfunctional client ingame. I had to look up the "no response" error in the forums where the cause is mentioned as a side note to current server problems. I can't estimate how big your Linux/Mac player base is, but that way you may lose some players. They might assume that the patch has added another problem to the

  23. Hello, Before making any complaints or suggestions you should review your behavior. Discussing suspensions on forums is against the rules. The current suspension is indeed 3 months but that is not due to just some words but much more than that. "(Valkyrie)> t***h nomad (Valkyrie)> he is r******d (Valkyrie)> our mid line is t***h too (Valkyrie)> m**********r (Valkyrie)> 0iq (Valkyrie)> a*e (Valkyrie)> i dont wanna talk with a*e (Valkyrie)> 0iq (Valkyrie)> t***h nomad" In any case your last suspension's length is not based only on that but yo

  24. We're actually working very hard on the servers as of late and it's being our top priority, the thing is we've had to focus on anti-ddosing cat and mouse games so we've been moving providers and developing protections which directly cause complications, but the silver lining is that things are getting better, tho it may not seem like it expect to see far better performance, lag, and stability in the coming months.

  25. After you experience games that you literally bleed from your fingers in order to win them, you time every last hit perfectly, gank, buy the correct items for the situation - and despite all that, you still lose, because offlane Devourer decided to go for Codex and go farm woods, your brain becomes pre-conditioned to detect signs of potential grief, even if such grief does not exist in reality. Many times people are playing 10 games in a row without a break, there is a lot of adrenaline involved in their bodies, their ability to perceive reality in a calm and logical manner is hindered -

  28. How to handle queue times on so many game modes?? easy! Guild Wars for example has automatic rotating events for it. Give us 4x or 5x silver rewards at certain times. Queue times for the modes with bonus will decrease this way.

  29. So many years have passed, for many players ACD has become a part of the game and now you have decided to start a holy-war of cheat-vs-anticheat? You ready for it?Only fans remained in the game. What is the purpose? Kill the game? Fair play? Let me remind you that there was still EasyDeny, but when you made this option in the game, it became unnecessary in ACD. So make the setting for everyone to zoom the camera up to 3500. Then the players won't need ACD either.

  30. Even a small zoom out will make a difference. You know better that many users got banned for this, many of them wont be able to play the game with the original zoom , myself too. Its a hit to the player base and we dont want that in our beloved game for so many years now. I dont think dota for example has the same affect on the zoom because it feels different, the camera is more angled etc. I love this game so many years now , since people are asking for this , please make it possible , lets meet in the middle of this , 8% to 10% sounds good. I dont even play FOC

  37. Just want to highlight how much I appreciate Mana Battery being returned to the game - felt like a fresh breath of nostalgia to even just see the icon and although the game impact isn't too big, it's a reminder to me of some great days of HoN in the past when you can start off with a mana battery and decide later to build it into a Power Supply (or not). But more importantly, I appreciate it as an example of FB staff willing to listen to players for input and very glad it was implemented so quickly when several players jumped on the issue in a recent thread.

  40. Hey @GiveUpBra TL;DR: Personally I think shieldbreaker is better than other damage items if the enemy has below 10 armor (or your team can put the enemy below 10 armor) Armor in hon follows the formula This can also be reexpressed according to the below function When we plot this, we see that damage reduction from armor follows a hyperbolic function. Let's zoom further in around origo to have an actual informative graph: Now this is much easier to interpret. On this graph, the amount of armour you have is on the x-axis and the y-axis your damage

  41. Hello, besides it's not allowed to discuss suspensions here, nor is it the correct section, I'll leave you a few comments here: - your appeal was not even handled yet, so I dunno how you want to show the "stupidity" of HoN support - you started insulting teammates 6minutes into the game. In your appeal you claimed that you did that cause "they tried to make you lose". 6 minutes into the game. The game lasted more than 70 minutes. Do you see the problem? - 100% of your judged reports were deemed innocent. Means every time a GM spent time on one of your reports, it was a time

  42. All great ideas. True, the blank spot at the bottom of the wheel is available. I think maybe the easiest addition for this feature code wise would be to assign a new hot key altogether (Perhaps Alt+W for ward, Alt+E for counterward by default? this way it's faster than typing if you are mid etc.) And maybe a macro saying requesting ward/counterward. This way no need to make a new image for the wheel, and still see if people like that feature in-game.

  43. Blitz mode was initially an extremely fun game mode where a non carry hero could kill everyone (monarch, martyr, etc) due to abilities reduced cool down , reduced stun time, and more much more. the gamemode is still as a feature in public games but almost no one plays it due to the lack of players in public mm . I think that gamemode could give players a fun time and remember old times. What do you guys think? Merry Christmas xoxo

  44. Mac: The unsupported Heroes of Newerth Mac client is currently 32-bit. This means if you're running a version after Mojave on your Mac system you won't be able to play, since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications. A 64-bit version of Heroes of Newerth Mac is currently in the works to support playing on Catalina and later, but it's not here yet.

  46. With @Whyzozerious's permission, I'm sharing this link of all the skin mods he's uploaded to the forums so far, renamed and ordered by hero name so they don't clash. The reasons for sharing this are: 1) it's nice to just be able to download all of them in one click, and 2) you can only load one skin per hero, since all of them use the default skin, so if you load more than one they will overlap, however, having the hero name in the name of the file will make it clear which mods are incompatible with each other. https://mega.nz/folder/wlgmED6A#U1U1bTnkoRTiZXvU2PbuIw Many thanks and big p
