  4. @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

  8. 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

  11. Good pickup on the Facebook post! Sorry we have been a little quiet, we coincidentally are about a tenth of the size of the team at it's peak, so please forgive us, we are working hard. 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

  12. 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

Timezone disambiguation: https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=February+5%2C+2021+at+1am+EST+to+local+time As far as compensation goes, we will announce that when the time is right.

  14. 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

  20. 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

  23. 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!

  26. 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

  28. 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

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

  33. 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

  34. 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

  41. 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

The in-game payment option for Gold Coins is currently not operational, but you can purchase Gold Coins through our website in the meantime if you need to: https://www.heroesofnewerth.com/store/gold/ Also, our website officially has a proper security certificate!

  45. G'day ! We are aware of the issues for MacOSX Catalina no longer supporting x86 and I wanted to share some information regarding this. For those who don't know, we are testing 64-bit versions of the HoN Client with a small group of testers for Windows, which have enormous performance boosts and various other upgrades, and much more compatible with the latest OS, this is currently invite only and has been going on for a while but - and I need to make this clear, I make no promises, but MAY be able to in the near future release this publicly as an alternative way to play the game!
