  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 There were plenty of reasons, some of which are: The old forums were very outdated, and did not offer features a modern platform should be able to The old forums became hard to maintain Key staff members involved in building the forums are no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

  7. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  12. 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

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. A very exciting top 5 video with a few special guests Lots of forum activities to do over the coming weeks Lots of nostalgia. There is also a major tournament happening run b

  16. 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

  18. 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 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

  25. 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,

  26. 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.

  33. 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

  38. 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

  39. FAQ Q) What is HoN (64-Bit)? A) HoN (64-Bit) is built with technology 15 years senior to the current version of the game, as well as vastly upgrading multiple extension libraries with some up to a decade senior, the most notable change being compiled as 64-Bit opposed to 32-Bit. This results in a much more stable experience for those on the Latest Windows (10) most notably Faster FPS, and Reduced Loading Times. Q) Why is this a Separate Client instead of updating the current game? A) HoN has gone without major upgrades such as a new rendering engine, upgr

  42. Hello Newerth! Some may know me, some might not, I go by Hubaris on the forums and ingame and I have been playing HoN for a long time; and I recently reinstalled and have become truly active again ingame and on the forums. It's amazing to see 10 years of this game, a game that I still hold in my heart as being one of the best in its genre, a masterclass in game flow, design and aesthetic. I was thinking about HoN's 10th anniversary but I am not one to make videos, I'm a man of the written word and I just wanted to share some memories of a game that I still love. I was debating doing this in Of

  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
