  1. Since HoN is closing down, I guess it's an appropriate time to reveal something I formulated in 2014, but to my knowledge has never been used since the two testing games we did with it. BUX Secret strat The idea is to ban hooks, and then pick Tempest, Parasite, Plague Rider, Cthulhuphant (pre-rework), and one of any hero (we used Rally in both our testing games). You level up your creep deny skills and just hug the tower. You have four heroes that can deny creeps, so every wave you'll only have one creep, so the lane will push into your tower. Since the tower kills everything at low
  2. Lol OK. Someone make a MW thread (or temporarily lift new topic restrictions), I promise I'll post something meaningful.
  3. Did the forums die before 20 June? I'm unable to start a new topic.
  4. Per title. He's already capable of initiating (with a considerable amount of damage too) from stealth; if he's able to jump after taking damage then it doubles as a powerful escape mechanism when he's spotted jumping. Goldenveil is still countered by Arcane Bomb, but it is a fairly pricey item to farm when its only application is to counter one enemy hero. Notably Tempest/Pestilence are already unable to jump when they take hero damage. Pearl can, but the range is pretty short so it's not really an escape.
  5. Only works on uncoordinated teams and/or Artillery players who itemize poorly. Good players defend their carry, and Pharaoh is pretty squishy (outside of his primary attribute he has no innate tankiness). Artilleries that get Geo, or even worse Tablet (costs less than 2k gold) are very hard to solo kill with Pharaoh, maybe even impossible.
  6. Here's a more detailed response to your post: - Flux does not have "insane semi-carry potential". Lots of heroes outscale him. Think about it - what does he actually have that lets him carry, his W? That's not even comparable to the likes of Aluna's Q and E. He does need massive AoE teammates to excel because if your entire team is single-target heroes like Arachna and Predator, you can't capitalize on opponents being all clumped up. Finally his nuke is not especially strong, especially without his ultimate. (Please don't tell me you would really rather have his nuke than, e.g., Torturer
  7. Since we don't have glaring imbalances right now (lots of underpowered heroes/items, but nothing really overpowered), improve matchmaking and/or the gameplay experience: - Don't let matchmaking put you in the same team as someone you ignored or banlisted - Make smurfs play against other smurfs - Shorten queue times for players at the top of the MMR range - Make it so that people who don't concede actually play and are not, e.g., AFKing in some corner of the map or hiding in the base and never getting off high ground| - Find some creative way to make people not pick all-carry lineu
  8. Aluna in MW is not a support: - She can't heal - She doesn't have any skills that actually support teammates, unless you call a 0-damage stun "support". - But she does have skills that boost her autoattack damage - Her damage output outside of her autoattacks is fairly weak That doesn't mean you can't play her as a support. She is largely flexible when it comes to items, there is nothing she especially needs (unlike, say, PK on Moraxus or Resto on Thunderbringer). If you're in a team with Rhapsody/Nymphora etc and they aren't getting Astrolabe, you absolutely can and possibly s
  9. That might be why, since I'm currently in the 1900-2000 bracket.
  10. See video. No idea what happened. Garena match ID: 648181370
  11. Make it so it can only target heroes (because who uses it on creeps anyway ...). The key difference in practice would be so you can reliably Sand Scepter Deadlift when he charges at you with his summons out.
  12. How about making it so that stats reset can set your MMR to any number from 1500 to the current MMR? This makes it so that you can drop rating (to find games faster), but not go all the way to 1500 where the games might not be enjoyable. Of course, implementing a cap on MMR would be even better.
  13. As I wrote in the second paragraph: "Only ranking the above average heroes because for some reason the Tier List Maker website does not allow me to add more tiers." Apex/Adrenaline/Goldenveil/Xemplar etc are all below average. Tarot icon is the one that's available on Tier List Maker. If you want the newer icon feel free to update the tier list maker icons. @Mr`Cactus thanks, will correct.
  14. Caveat, this is a one-person effort by me, so the list is very vulnerable to my biases. I only see what happens in my own games, and it's also been a really long time since I played a MW tournament game. Only ranking the above average heroes because for some reason the Tier List Maker website does not allow me to add more tiers. I'm sure it used to allow me to do this, so it must be a recent bug. Heroes are not sorted within tiers, although I've made an effort to put similar heroes together. Thoughts: 1. As long as Flux is supported with AoE ultimates, I think the hero is
  15. Heh, one wonders how Garena's stock price keeps going up when they treat their players so badly.
