  2. The new Heroes of Newerth forums The Heroes of Newerth forums have finally received a long overdue makeover. Why a makeover? There were plenty of reasons, some of which are: The old forums were very outdated, and did not offer features a modern platform should be able to The old forums became hard to maintain Key staff members involved in building the forums are no longer working with us The old forums were slow and inefficient The old forums have had some bugs here & there The old forums had tightly coupled integration with t

  5. @Lifewaster Hey there. I understand where you're coming from, I'd like to clarify this so others can read it too on why we are moving towards 64-Bit and the benefits it can bring to the game. HoN is currently built on technology that is literally 15 years old ( Visual Studio 2005 ) and most of the libraries for the game are a decade old at this point, if you look at the post above, that guy can't even play the game because its SO OLD that apple has removed support for the ability to play on HoN's tech. Although maybe you get great performance I've heard nothing but the oppo

  9. Hi there, Since you went public with your case I will take the liberty to tell the story from our point of view: 1) You contacted us complaining you didn't receive the full amount of gold coins purchased, that you didn't get to "claim" the extra gold coins. I carefully explained that you had already received them. The "extras" are already a part of the full amount as explained in the picture below: This text will be even more highlighted in the next patch. 2) You then ask us for a refund, claiming it wasn't you who made the purchase. I then explained, since Garena ow

Our June 2nd patch will celebrate everything from HoN in the past 10 years, there will be some cool things and forum activities to get amongst. The shortlist includes: A claim page for a few avatars.

  13. HoN is still super duper cool and the playerbase shows this game has potential lots of it, the game needs better management some new skins so they can rake in some money, Element User confirmed something is on the radar but no ETA on it, this means there is HOPE!!! We need to purchase more gold coins and show the people higher up that money can still be made. Back in S2 days Maliken who created HoN was a known racist even on the streams, arrogant buffoon who thought he knew it all, he scammed a lot of people then went on to make strife then didn't pay the developers it had a huge upv

  16. 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

  24. Hi all, Many of you are probably wondering on our progress & what happened with the donations, so I will elaborate on that here: Stripe actually has a processing fee of 2.9% + $0.30 of the donated amount (https://stripe.com/en-ca/pricing), so we never actually get 100% of the donations (unfortunately). $1 donations usually result in a net of $0.66 - so donating one time with something like $5 would actually be more helpful than donating $1 five times. Just wanted to state that somewhere so you guys know! Most of the currently unused funds are kept on hold until our sm

  28. 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

  30. 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!

  32. Greeting fellow Linux-users, since I've seen a couple of Linux people having problems with HoN, I've decided to try to package it. I haven't done that before, so it'll probably have issues which I might or might not be able to fix. Anyways, let me summarize what an AppImage is: Basically it combines all the libraries together with an application so you don't have to manually install the required libraries on your system. It's a distribution-independent Tool that should run almost everywhere - you could even run it on Windows via WSL! Since the image would be really big if

  35. I am going to say this once & only once: We release x64 when we're ready. We release it on our terms, not some vigilante/group of vigilantes that think they are all-knowing & self-righteous. You have 0 idea about the logistics behind it. Sure, you can spread it to other people if you want, but know that you're harming them because they're going to get a huge patch when we set up our new release & for future patches, as opposed to getting it done right when we release it. You think your "fairness" argument is correct, and maybe it is for tournamen

  37. Hi all, I can give a small update - we've been working on the HoN 64-bit client for a while (long before the donations page was created). One of the main barriers is the proper implementation of the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) to replace Awesomium for 32 & 64 bit clients, since Awesomium has no 64-bit equivalent (the library was abandoned by its developers). Chromium is necessary to integrate to the HoN Client before we can make the client available publically, since a web browser library is required for the in-game Message-of-the-Day (MotD) panels to be displ

  38. Background: For any given avatar, there is a unique demand curve. The more that avatar costs, the fewer will be sold. As avatars are "digital" goods, the supply line is perfectly flat; FB can meet any arbitrary demand with no additional investment. To maximize income, avatars should be priced at wherever COST x UNITS SOLD is maximized. This is a challenging calculation that relies on market predictions, which is why there are constantly sales and adjustments for all digital content across all digital games. What if game companies didn't have to predict pricing demand? What i

  44. Since everyone shares something about what HoN meant for them in the past, I'll share something too: So like 13 years back, I started to develop a DotA-clone. My plan was just a basic replication of basically everything, but without wc3 behind. However I was active on DotA-forums and I saw the only advertisement of HoN I've ever seen: Someone announced that they are working on it and they will reach closed beta soon. So naturally I applied for close beta, was frustrated because it took ages for me to get accepted - and once I joined I instantly stopped my own game because there was al
