  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

  2. Well damn... this just completely ruined my day. Honestly, I don't feel like playing HoN anymore as of right now... cause I know that no matter what I do, or whatever I might buy... it will be gone forever. This has been probably the only game I've played in the last 10 years (like 98% of the time) and I really don't know where to go from here... Can we not get any updates or any new skins or any events after 20 June? Just leave it in the final version that it will be. And also please set up a monthly cost for server maintenance that the players can fulfil (ofc some will donate more than

  3. 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

  5. Treat this as an addendum to previous posts by other people. Since "the news" I have played a little extra on several accounts and I have to be honest here and this one goes out to some people that know who they are 100%: How dare you disrespect the game so much? How dare you, when the game is closing in 6 months, treat it and it's playerbase like complete garbage? Throwing games, griefing, calling the russians zoo animals and being so crass that I wouldn't even screenshot it or record it to prove a point? Like honestly, how the fuck dare you? You don't enjoy the game? Ok, piss off.

  7. Hello, I would like to place my bid of 54 million american dollars to buy HoN. As I can't step into the contact with garena, I would like if somebody from FB or S2 team could send my message to the boardroom of Garena. My aim is to make HoN the most popular game here in Saudi Arabia and first thing that I would do after buying it, would be. I would change the name into أبطال بريدة ... aka Heroes of Buraydah. Best regards. Aman Jewani

  8. Greetings handsome people, as we all know HoN population is not what it used to be, sometimes queue time is up to 20 - 30 minutes (high rank) and sometimes just the second you load gets into a match, good ol' days when blitz mode was on, war effort, and many other collaborations that gave us rewards for using it (ex: overwolf) manage to afford this awesome game, imagine what could happen if we reach to those veterans who used to play HoN or to new people who are sick of wasting tons of money for a single item when you can get a full avatar changing every skill, or an ultimate avatar which chan

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

It's a mixed bag, some are personal projects I made for fun and practice, some where tech demo's or examples to show the higher ups to officially put into the game.

  17. Taken directly from here: ============ Permanent Events (starting from December 20, 2021 up until the end of service): - Silver Coin multiplier for Matchmaking games increased to 10x. Plinko Drop Rates - Drop rates for the Diamond Chest will be permanently increased to 4x. Regarding Gold-Coin exclusive products - Certain products will be made available with Silver Coins. This process will be done gradually over time, at the sole discretion of Frostburn Studios (given the current circumstances).

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!

I want to strike while the irons still hot and move quickly with the community to help preserve this game you all love. Now that this game has been announced as approaching an "end of life" as many GAAS sadly do, there are things we can do, but i need your help! What i want to propose is very simple, the community needs to rally together and petition the current rights holders (Garena) to

  22. Ladies and Gentleman , i too love this game as you do. Lets see in this thread if we can somehow make a deal to pay monthly donations for the servers to be up. I can personally pay around 600$ per month , if we can get atleast 100+ players who can donate atleast 100$ a month , we should have enough for servers to keep running. However , we should not fund greedy requests , i spoke to my programmer friend and he replied to me that depending on the servers numbers , it shouldn't be more than 10 to 20 $ thousand a month to run it ( anything more than that is probably a lie to get more money

  23. 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

  24. That depends on who you are and what you have. HoN used to have a LAN-mode and you could host matches with that without problems. However that mode is long gone. There are however people that still play that old version or at least try to - building something like match making servers shouldn't be too hard, the main problem is the main game server which I don't think is available anywhere. If we get that server "somehow", I assume someone will make hosting games possible again .

  25. 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.

  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

  33. 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,

  34. This. Iam playing this game for 12 years too. But it got constantly worser with the time. The Server were laggy, the community toxicer, smaller. Hell even the search to a new game takes 30minutes. I was about to leave HoN (it was around 2016-2018) i think. But then new Servers, no Lag any more. I feel so happy. Sometimes after that, the x64 Client was realeased. My FPS went from around 40 to over 150. This Game is so much better and joyable now. If they had closed it around that bad time, i would have been sad, but not mad. Now, iam. Playing this game daily, having much fun (nearly a

  37. Hi, I'm posting here because I don't have a way to get more direct contact. I want to revise the tooltips for the game. Maybe it's because it's a sign of the game showing its age, but the amount of inconsistent terms and grammar style and the lack of concise syntax is surprisingly big. I'm willing to help make the wording clearer with relevant information and more consistent across everything. What I would do is change the grammar to remove third-person references, not have information split across the skill description and info, and fix up wording and spelling for terms, plus g

  38. No way. Why don't you ask for someone to buy/pay the servers so they can at least keep running. No more patches and events but just so the servers are still up. You can't just let this all die. All the avatars that people bought. The accounts are valuable to some. It's sad. There must be a way to at least host private servers.... Any texas oil tycoons playing HoN? Any yacht owners? Any lawyers? Any tiger owners?

  39. Hello all. I will make this pretty short as I am quite mortified and trying to forget the past months of my life. I was browsing the forums today and in my forum-profile, I am able to see my post history. During which I became aware that I have been on the forums for the last six months or so. I see that it is not pretty. From about July until 23 days ago I have had a massive drinking problem. I started drinking when I woke up and all throughout the day. It cost me my job and my sanity. Luckily my family was able to help me seek the help I needed and I have now been sober for 23 days.

A long time ago, I used to update the HoN competitive part of the gamepedia - mostly this: https://hon.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Categories (I even had a sweet courier icon next to my name on the old forums). I stopped after HoN Tour season 3 as I was losing interest in the HoN pro scene at that point. However, today I stumbled upon this page after a while and wondered how many HoN Tour seasons and world

  44. 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
