  1. Hello, you can always file an inquiry in case you are suspended. However, I don't see any suspensions on that date. Could be just a ban from matchmaking (chatserver issue which occurred some days ago.
  2. Being afk is not bannable. Leaving has nothing to do with RAP. Report people avoiding afk and check the leaver whether he manipulates stats. Those cases can be reported. I also dunno why you state this as it would be happening often. In thousands of game for me similar things barely happened. Sure you have a DC/leaver once in a while but the majority of my game are just fine.
  3. While the suggestion itself isn't bad it won't happen as it doesn't work for HoN due to many factors such as: a) GMs being volunteers. If you want to make sure to have GMs available 24/7 they need to be paid and this would be sort of a full time job. b) The changes on the game would be massive. It would require rewriting larger parts of the codebase and due to a) there is no point of blocking resources for that purpose. c) Also the benefits are rather small cause even if you kick the player on time it will be still hard (unlikely) that you win the game at that point. That b
  4. I edited your post as it is not allowed to call out people on the forums. As EU already said, simply contact us using an inquiry via the portal if you stumble over cases of stat manipulation. As a sidenote, the player you mentioned has been handled.
  5. In general that is working fine. There is a long term bug which barely appears on reports not being shown. Besides that, in most of the cases the player already got suspended for a different game thus your report will be automatically closed.
  6. Hello, I personally don't see a reason why the reporter should be hidden. There is no need as people barely check or need that info anyway. There wouldn't be much of a difference. Hiding the offender name will not happen simply due to the resources it would need as not only GMs would be affected by that. Also, reports for bad nickname would not work. Over all the years of being a GM there barely have been any cases which where judged in a biased way. The amount of those decisions are negligible. In case you stumble over such a case, feel free to leave me a message on the forums/
  7. Both answers are correct. Avoiding afk/refusal to participate is the category to report people following others around. Besides bad nickname/verbal abuse/staff impersonation, replays are always checked for all griefing actions. However, the more accurate you are in describing the offense/providing timestamps the less are the chances for mistakes being made.
  8. Obviously Succu/Ello and even Bomb are top tier. Artesia and Revenant are also extremely good but underestimated in most brackets. The only melee heroes that can contest ranged heroes are those that have lifesteal. The best one would be salforis. BH works in lower brackets but suffers vs good players. My current favorite is Xemplar. He struggles a bit early vs ranged but if you manage not to lose too hard and get at least your bottle and preferable red boots he is a threat to almost every hero as soon as he got his ult and even you might have lost the first minutes you easily recover
  9. Don't judge others by your own standards. Not everybody rages and retributive justices leads to what you described above - getting suspended yourself. Insulting other players just makes you part of the problem. It literally has no positive effect on the game. It just further lowers the mood of your team and makes things worse. Besides that, the "troll" or "griefer" won't magically stop griefing if you insult him. Ignoring those players on the other hand will lead to them losing interest in griefing in most cases. I enjoy the majority of the games I play and I don't care too much about ot
  10. The reasons why reviewing all reports would have a negative impact on the game are easy to explain: If 2+ people report someone or a reliable reporter (someone where most of his reports turned out to be guilty) reports someone the chances of an actual guilty decision are rather high. There are 700+ reports each day and loads of them are rage reports or reports by people who have no idea what griefing actually means. The GM team can not handle every incoming daily report due to the lack of manpower. If we would consider every report as valid and if we would have to review every repo
  11. With "watching someone nearby die" I meant your dual mid situation for instance. Still laning phase, your 2nd mid is about to die and you just watch where you could have easily helped him. Obviously you don't have to put yourself in dying as well. A classic example is a NH picking up codex sitting nearby teamfights just to codex KS or pounce to lasthit low enemies without actually attacking them or using smoke to help his team. There are rules of conduct/terms of service which people can/should read upon account creation. Obviously, every sort of action that is done with malicious inten
  12. Not conceding is not bannable - under no circumstances. Following someone around over a longer period of times falls under avoiding afk/refusal to participate. Going dual mid is fine. However, watching someone die nearby also falls under refusal to participate.
  13. Where did I say that? "Endlessly farming with showing no intention to win the game is considered and griefing and is bannable. " That falls under refusal to participate. It does not mean a jungler farms 15mins for his PK or a carry farms jungle midgame for 10 minutes. It's the overall picture that counts. If the intentions are clearly malicious and the negative impact on the game is given (negative impact can also be given if the game is won in the end..) then it will be punished. Not defending barracks/joining nearby fights are also indicators for refusal.
  14. For the not Corroborated status. For the what is bannable: To your questions: 1) Endlessly farming with showing no intention to win the game is considered and griefing and is bannable. However, if it's a carry he is not supposed to be joining every fight. He should be farming to secure late game. The other 4 people are supposed to create sufficient space for him thus should not fight/get picked off in bad positions as usually it's not beneficial for the carry to join those fights. Also, some carry players have no knowledge on when to join a fight and when to farm. In ge
  15. I kinda like the variety it brings. A jungler can win you 2 lanes (likely mid and short) if played actively. If the suicide doesn't feed too badly it's quite viable. Legio/Parasite hit level 6 at 4 min mark which is a huge threat. Leg can have a 9min PK if uncontested. Winning 2 out of 3 lanes wins at least the early game. I do agree that heroes like salo, draco, ra should not be able to jungle. But core junglers like legi, para, sols, oph, temp and kotf can do really well jungling while being a threat early on.
  16. They do have a separate list, however, there is an overall karma among your accounts which determines your priority. So basically you need to add up the numbers of all of them if you want to get to know your karma.
  17. You should be able to single report people with your rap score. I'm not going into detail on how the system works but warnings were not counted towards your guilty rate for most of the time which was a major flaw. I was changed to work properly a few weeks ago. Also, don't forget that sub accounts also count towards your karma.
  18. chronos only benefits from it due to his ult. if you don't counter the ult properly (storm, tablet etc.) you will lose regardless of his item pickups. also arcane bomb hard counters geobane and is rather cheap - I would not nerf gerobane or it will lose its purpose
  19. Not sure what this thread is about. In game time is correct. If you want to discuss a topic create a proper thread rather than taking quotes out of context. The not corroborated status has been discussed multiple times and were answered. With the current man power the system works and there is no point changing that unless we have enough resources to handle every report coming in which we currently don't.
  20. Hello, you can see your suspension on http://rap.heroesofnewerth.com/ and appeal it in case you don't think it was correctly applied. You won't gain any info on your suspension on the forums as it's against the forum rules.
  21. I personally would like to see buffs to these items. Especially lightbrand is barely picked up so having some base magic lifesteal makes sense. Also I almost never finish the dawnbringer when going for frostburn. Similar changes were done before and it turned out to be too overpowered on heroes like ravenor. So we need to be careful on not giving hit too much magic lifesteal..

    New Heroes

    Heroes can't really be removed due to SEA. Other than that I'd also much rather see changes to the current heroes than new ones.
  23. Closing as it was answered and is nowhere rap related ?
  24. Hello, I'm not sure why do you think you will be forgotten. LAT servers were just reintroduced. If you feel forgotten please collaborate.
