  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

  5. 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

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  18. 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!

Meet the love of my life and my current wife on a custom match in 2009 when we were playing against each other and she rekt me mid then i asked for 1x1 and we've been playing ever since. Such a fun time watching angrytestie,tralf,moonmeander streaming hon back then. Watching from breaky to emperor on honcast was also a blast.

  27. 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).

  28. It's really simple. You see, there is a direct correlation between easiness of something and number of people using/consuming it. This is the way this world works. For instance, while you might be trash while playing HoN, I'm sure that you will feel like above the average player in LOL. FB tried to use this in their favor. When they introduced patch 4.0 in HoN, regular and top HoN players died or almost died from cancer. Our beloved game tried to be as stupid as LOL. I myself saw a 1600 player in these brand new "Legendary" bracket. FB just created the same illusion as LOL did. I do

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

  32. 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

  33. It was a wonderful 10 years of my life. I think I spent about 8000 hours considering all my accounts. When I started playing, I was in the 9th grade, I played hon on my old Pentium. Now I have a job, a family, RTX 3090, but I'm still returning to my favorite game. During this time, I made new friends in the game, participated in tournaments, smurf a lot, was banned several times, and enjoyed every second spent on this game. It was an incredible time... And instead of saying goodbye, I would like to say to all the developers, players and all other people who were somehow involved in this g

  34. 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

  36. How to handle queue times on so many game modes?? easy! Guild Wars for example has automatic rotating events for it. Give us 4x or 5x silver rewards at certain times. Queue times for the modes with bonus will decrease this way.

  37. 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.

  38. 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

  40. 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

  43. Just want to highlight how much I appreciate Mana Battery being returned to the game - felt like a fresh breath of nostalgia to even just see the icon and although the game impact isn't too big, it's a reminder to me of some great days of HoN in the past when you can start off with a mana battery and decide later to build it into a Power Supply (or not). But more importantly, I appreciate it as an example of FB staff willing to listen to players for input and very glad it was implemented so quickly when several players jumped on the issue in a recent thread.
