  2. 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

  5. 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

Thank you for your patience!

  7. 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

  9. 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

  13. 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!

  17. 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

  19. 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

  24. Hello, Before making any complaints or suggestions you should review your behavior. Discussing suspensions on forums is against the rules. The current suspension is indeed 3 months but that is not due to just some words but much more than that.

  25. We're actually working very hard on the servers as of late and it's being our top priority, the thing is we've had to focus on anti-ddosing cat and mouse games so we've been moving providers and developing protections which directly cause complications, but the silver lining is that things are getting better, tho it may not seem like it expect to see far better performance, lag, and stability in the coming months.

  26. After you experience games that you literally bleed from your fingers in order to win them, you time every last hit perfectly, gank, buy the correct items for the situation - and despite all that, you still lose, because offlane Devourer decided to go for Codex and go farm woods, your brain becomes pre-conditioned to detect signs of potential grief, even if such grief does not exist in reality. Many times people are playing 10 games in a row without a break, there is a lot of adrenaline involved in their bodies, their ability to perceive reality in a calm and logical manner is hindered -

  29. Hi everyone, Most of the server migration process has finished. Matchmaking should be working properly now. You should be able to log in just fine & see others in the chat server as well. The in-game MotD is currently not operational, but we will fix that tomorrow. 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! We were able to update the 10-year old server code

  30. 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

  31. That statement is SO stupid that it (almost) doesn't deserve an answer. For the convenience of course. Many will 'swipe' their credit card on a donation site - none will open their net-bank and make an international wire-transer, which in some cases can be expensive for the player.

  32. What about after a certain hero gets X amount of total AFK per game, then they can be kicked. This would prevent being kicked from a quick afk but if they repeat this, the team can vote kick.

  36. 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.

  39. All great ideas. True, the blank spot at the bottom of the wheel is available. I think maybe the easiest addition for this feature code wise would be to assign a new hot key altogether (Perhaps Alt+W for ward, Alt+E for counterward by default? this way it's faster than typing if you are mid etc.) And maybe a macro saying requesting ward/counterward. This way no need to make a new image for the wheel, and still see if people like that feature in-game.

  40. Blitz mode was initially an extremely fun game mode where a non carry hero could kill everyone (monarch, martyr, etc) due to abilities reduced cool down , reduced stun time, and more much more. the gamemode is still as a feature in public games but almost no one plays it due to the lack of players in public mm . I think that gamemode could give players a fun time and remember old times. What do you guys think? Merry Christmas xoxo

  41. Mac: The unsupported Heroes of Newerth Mac client is currently 32-bit. This means if you're running a version after Mojave on your Mac system you won't be able to play, since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications. A 64-bit version of Heroes of Newerth Mac is currently in the works to support playing on Catalina and later, but it's not here yet.

  43. With @Whyzozerious's permission, I'm sharing this link of all the skin mods he's uploaded to the forums so far, renamed and ordered by hero name so they don't clash. The reasons for sharing this are: 1) it's nice to just be able to download all of them in one click, and 2) you can only load one skin per hero, since all of them use the default skin, so if you load more than one they will overlap, however, having the hero name in the name of the file will make it clear which mods are incompatible with each other. https://mega.nz/folder/wlgmED6A#U1U1bTnkoRTiZXvU2PbuIw Many thanks and big p

If you crash, although the default incentive is to not upload the crash dump when the dialog box appears, I cannot stress enough, we *DO* check these, alot, all the time, please press yes on the crash dump upload! as this helps us greatly to fix these issues. We have fixed several crashes already, some in the current hot fix, others coming next, and we apologize for the issues players are having, keep in mind this is a first release and it's go

I've been playing HoN for over 11 years now and unfortunately I was, like many others, a witness of the downfall of it due to stupid decision making. This is your baby now, and I'm sure with a little support from the community it will grow back. Just look at the Honcast, 1.000 players were watching the finals, and we even had BreakyCPK casting it. For me personally the game doesn't require much more polish in terms or hero balance/map or new content that much. The real problem for anyone
