  1. It weighs heavy on my heart to login and play HoN today for the very last time. It has been the game that brought me & my friends together for years and years and im glad to have been able to play HoN more or less continuously since 4th June 2010. Thought today would be the perfect day to share a picture including two of my most precious HoN artifacts and the last time me being online on HoN. My HoN account purchase recite from 4th June 2010. My HoN mouse pad from Dreamhack (I think winter 2012) with autographs from a few legendary HoN people, including BreakyCPK, Tralfamadore,

  2. Sorry for my English. I translate through google translator. It is very sad to realize that the game that I spent half of my life with (I am now 26) is gone. I still remember the moment when I saw a strange icon in the garena, clicked on it, and HON began to download from me. How surprised I was when I found out that there is a reconnect in this game. My first game was as an engineer, and since that game, I got hooked on hon, and have been playing for 13 years now with breaks. In this game, I met a bunch of interesting people from different countries, with whom I still keep in touch.

  8. Dear everybody, as it appears to be coming to an end now, I sadly realized that HoN was with me for (and probably even helped define) a significant part of my life. My buddies and I started MOBAs with Dota (the Warcraft 3 mod), then played HoN beta, and then HoN ever since. My current account was created 2009. HoN is indeed the best MOBA out there. LoL and Dota2 are just so slow in comparison, taking themselves so serious, just not the kind of action and fun you can have with your family and friends when playing HoN. The fun, action, and particularly human interaction that

  9. Hello everyone, as I write this with tears in my eyes, I just wanted to say it's been a pleasure playing with every single one of you! No matter what has happened and what kind of a game it was when we played, good or bad... I'm just thankful it happened. I just played my last HoN game with my all time favorite hero Shadowblade (the first hero that I got Immortal and Annihilation in the same game with... I remember it like it was yesterday) and I played it with my oldest HoN buddy (who has been a real life friend of mine for many years thanks to this game). I've meet many interesting peop

  10. I'm a hardcore Midwars player, and, I'm sorry, but what Dota 2 could give me? One map? Slowpoke animations? 13-14 years old teammates? Worst commutiny ever? Time-wasting 50-80 minutes games without concede? Stupid meta, when 15-20 heroes is "ok" and other 150+ completly garbage? No, thanks mate.

  11. Thank you all at FB and the volunteers for working on the game for as long as you did even after the Garena sellout; it just goes to show how good and full of passionate people HoN was. I've written my goodbye and last impressions here on reddit, if anyone wants to read them, don't feel like copy-pasting the whole thing here. As i've written however, it's been a blast and made for some of the best years and memories in my life; i'll keep HoN in a warm place in my heart for the rest of my life. HoN best moba 4 life!

  13. I tried to play a last game now, sad to say I couldn't Player since 2011, good years where I could just log in and play a quick match to freshen up. Now what? LOL is to slow on moves. They could at least left us the server code so we could make it live longer Farewell! GG!!

That was the best game i played in my life i dont know why they close it when many people still playing. i tryed to play dota but it unbalanced/inaccurate/slow s**t. Thx to all of you for all these memories maybe one day we can get private server of this perfect moba.

  18. 1) No I don't think so. I once checked my PayPal Account and I was about 500 - 600 Dollars in the whole HoN-Lifetime. So it's like buying HoN to initial price each year. May be too less. I must say, HoN really had a fair Free2Play-concept. 2) As u said, they disabled the counter. I just remember in 2011 about (so about once year after release), it were 80000 - 100000 players same time online.

  19. Been playing HON since beta, and now that i'm older and with a kid, I find MW to be easier to play and enjoy. Often times shorter, but more often than not, get to see a character's OPness once all items are acquired. If anything, it's to pass the time, and demands less thinking. After a long hard days work and taking care of baby, a 30 minute get away in MW is all I need. My wife is a good sport, she doesn't bother me when I'm playing.

  21. Still waiting for HoN big comeback.. Only HoN is the best adaptation of the original DOTA.. Most of us who loved and played HoN till the last day is surely played the original DOTA and that's one of the reason why we loved HoN even a lot of the players is toxic.. HoN is like hardcore moba while DOTA2 is like a gaycore:D (CandyCrush like moba) peace Dota2 fans:D

  22. I remember the time when I was 15 years old and I started playing, you know what hasn't changed? This is, of course, love for this game, which you have been playing with friends and yourself for more than 11 years, an amazing world, yes, it might have been necessary to change the engine, more patches, etc., but everything is possible to raise from your knees! I really want that the game has not died, you will not find such a community anymore, there is nothing to compare such a game with. Is it possible to make a paid subscription for a couple of bucks a month? Those were the best times in my

  27. Absolutely heart breaking. One of my Absolute favorite games of all time. Been playing since beta. There hasn't many days in the past few years where I didn't play at least one game of standard or midwars. I really hope someone can somehow revive it on a private server. HON forever

  30. HoN is and was the best game I EVER have played. Coming from Quake 3 and Starcraft Broodwar, it was the only MOBA that was fast enough not to bore one. And it's been so varied that I've easily played a total of 10,000 matches together with my family and friends since 2009. WHAT A GAME ! gg wp and thanks for everything @ S2 + Frostburn + @ElementUser and Team P.S. Is it possible to have a private LAN server?

  31. I wish I could accumulate that number for myself . But there are beta-games, sub-accounts, sbt and rct games for me . Just way too much to sum that together (and I don't think I could still access the SBT client ). But overall I'm certainly over 10 000 games myself, basically never concede games early (I think I have an average game time over 30 minutes everywhere (my main has 35 minutes)), adding lobby and queue times, I've certainly played HoN for more than a full year.

  32. Bit sad to see this great game go. This was first Moba game i started to play and it just felt right game to be. Off topic: It has been quite a time ago, but i would say around year of 2012, there was circulating in web a localhost hon client, which you could play in Lan and with others over Hamachi (was fun, although every client could edit item and buyback costs live). Haven´t really searched is it still out there somewhere. As Hon servers are now going down. Could it be possible to remove in-game login page somehow (or assign custom login details in localhost) and still play this ga

  33. This is not my account (I can't logged in to my account due to inactivity and I can't reach the customer supports for weeks now), this account is gracefully lent to me by a very nice person... anyway.... This is my final tribute to HON, the game that taught me MOBA in general. Such a wonderful game, my voyage of 4 years with this game will never be forgotten. I never expected and never thought that I would write my final tribute this soon but I have to pay respect to the game which I grew up with during my high school days. Don't blame the developers for the 30$, thank them for creat

  34. HoN was P2W for a while with 'early access' to new characters that were ridiculously overpowered. That greed alone along with other questionable decisions may have had a deterreing effect. Plus HoN had zero marketing. It was purely friend of friend type of networking. League of Lesbians is like a game for children/dysfunctional brain capacity. Dota 2's delay gives me anxiety. Not sure what's next.

  35. Here's some old stuff I made many many years ago ( some of it awesome, some of it cringe ) if anyone's interested, just gonna dump it here, a few of these are on youtube but not all of it. 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.

  36. Steam wont buy this steaming pile, they wouldn't in 2008 and they wont now. Everyone wants to complain about the dwindling player base but no one accepts why. This is the absolute single worst community I've ever played in during my 23 years of playing online games. This is the first time I've checked the forums in a little over a year and maybe play 2-3 games a year and am instantly reminded of why I quit. Everyone I knew quit long ago and the only time this game was worth playing was when it was region locked. Unless you were a 2k player you needed comms and when your mid died at

  37. 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

  39. Mate, i'm 35 years old and started playing dota mod in warcraft. The difference is not in strategy, the difference is that you miss out on two 'boring' periodes in most FOC games: the start when its mostly about last hitting and the mid game where there is ofton not much action. In midwars the strategy is more teamfocused then in FOC, I like teamplay.

  47. Dear Community and dear team, While it has been a long time since I last played actively I feel very deeply for this game. I played it while still in beta (transitioning from Ice frogs dota) and for the better part of my time in school and later university, HoN was my go to game. It was by far superior to all the other Mobas. I recently tried LoL and almost had to through up because I felt like I touched something disgusting :D no other game gave me so many good memories (and admittedly a few rage quits) than this one did. I was so sad to see it slowly dying and now that it's ti

  48. I have played the game since beta and 95% of my MoBa games are HoN. Make the game so you need to buy it and we need to pay monthly to play it so we can save the best moba game. Please talk to us ♡
