  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

  3. 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

  5. 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,

  6. 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.

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.

  9. 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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

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.

  17. 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

  23. 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

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

  25. 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).

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

Thanks to everyone who contributed, either with money or with their time, I have no regrets, if it were to volunteer myself for a similar or another HON project, I would gladly do it all over again! Congrats and good job to every single employee and volunteer that kept the game up and running, I will still be here till the end!

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

  31. 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

  32. 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

  33. That depends on who you are and what you have. HoN used to have a LAN-mode and you could host matches with that without problems. However that mode is long gone. There are however people that still play that old version or at least try to - building something like match making servers shouldn't be too hard, the main problem is the main game server which I don't think is available anywhere. If we get that server "somehow", I assume someone will make hosting games possible again .

  34. This hurts... I remember getting my beta Key with some friends, going through our first "follow" match, buying the game for my birthday, spending hours and entire weekends playing nothing but HoN, I even have family videos where my children are messing around and you can hear HoN music in the background... It´s a feeling in between frustration/sadness/angriness. Nothing but good memories.

Can another company buy hon client? "Is it a bait for sponsors? " Please dont end the game! The best MoBa game! Wife

  38. 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.

  39. 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

Thanks to @hegelsohn@`Shattered@Narandea@Tommy@dav787@spylex and few others for keeping the peace via the RAP portal and banning a higher number of players than HoN's playerbase at it's peak.

  47. Hello, since the last announcement about the Camera Distance hack bans, i think its time you consider patching the camera distance to zoom out more , making it even for everyone , with no advantages/disadvantages for anyone. I call it more like a playstyle , because i play most of my games zoomed out, rpgs , mmorpgs even rally games. Even if you patched it a little its still not enough!!!!! I think it will be fair for everyone plus noone will get banned for 3rd party programs . Please consider this!
