  1. The Linux client has worked great for the last 10 years (or 9?), the bash script still installs it fine on a sane distro, I see no need for the AppImage (but that's me anyhow). I'm glad it still recieves updates, my game-loading times has been without doubt the fastest in 99 out of 100 matches for years, running on a 2014 CPU with a not so fast SSD until quite recently with the new ryzen chips and amazingly fast m.2 drives. As for cheaters, there are ways to fake your HWID without virtualization, sure it takes some talent and dedication, but some seems to be willing to go that route, this
  2. If possible, please consider implementing a instant message relay system so that you can send messages to offline players. While this could be used to spam or harass, limiting this to the ones on your friend-list would hopefully neglect any abuse.
  3. Allowing for self-voting simply boosts the egoism of the average player. Let's face it, we've all done it, because we can. A small silver reward for the MVP together with 9 player voting, excluding self of course, could potentially make it less greed-focused. Or opposite team MVP voting, creating a more friendly post-game chat and perhaps better community. Effectively removing the ability for a 3-5 man queue to vote for thoir team leader (or pre-decided MVP). This might cause the same result as hidden/non-self votes did.
  4. If a GM would enter a match to moderate, direct measurements would have to be taken, such as in-game mute of chat and voicecom (that would of course extend for a given period depending on severity). Or if a player is for example handing out eyes/doombringers etc, eject the player and take whatever action you normally would on item abuse. This would tinker with balance in a way that allows the outnumbered team to stand a more fair chance of winning the game, rather than having their griefing teammate working for the enemy, 4v5 is considerably easier than "4v6". Also since suspensions can t
  5. Wouldn't it be nice if GM's could jump into your game upon request, as a form of spectator - to do moderation work? This could easily be abused of course, and waste precious GM-time. So to deal with that, make sure that at least three (or four) people issue the "call A GM" request, as a form of live RAP. I understand this would require some pretty radical redesign of the game, but it could deal with issues where a sole player decides to be arrogant and throw the game over some minor controversy, or simply go bananas with bad language, -phobia, racism or any other disrespectful manner
  6. The text announcing the action could be moved into the centre of the pentagon, freeing up space for a 5th menu. Or the whole pentagon could be redesigned to a hexagon or bigger, this would of course take more effort than just branching out on the 5th side. I like the ward-ping idea a lot, we need more ways to increase support efficiency and encourage players to buy and place wards. Edit: [slightly off-topic] The cancel button could also be redesigned to the centre, releasing your ping-key (ALT by default) while hovering the cursor in the centre, allowing the dialogue/menu to close, causin
  7. It runs perfectly fine under Gentoo Linux (gentoo.org), I've had very few issues with it over the 8 years I've played HoN on Linux. Your X issues can probably be solved if you ask around in the Ubuntu forums or on their IRC chat on #freenode. I think it's either distro-specific or some permission issue. I install HoN in /home/<user>/HoN though, and that's also where the .Heroes\ of \ Newerth/ directory goes (for settings and other game-specific things such as screenshots). Please tell us the permissions on HoN/game/hon-x86_64 and also the ldd output of it.
