  1. I started at Beta 2009/2010. Was my first MOBA. I was really kicked out of games for Half a Year (kicking was possible with vote at those times). I was flamed to death, but I kept on So what I have learned and it's all about: Keep on!!!
  2. Nice that u open a own thread for it. It's too late man. HoN is dead on 20th June.
  3. I am so sad, playing it from begin since 2009/10 S2 games did just one tactical mistake: Offering HoN not for free at begin. I bought it for the $ 39,99 2010, but a lot of kids out there didn't had or want to spend the money and gone to LoL, which was free from begin. I understand S2 Games bringing back the money for development and the F2P-Market was just at begin. But if HoN would be for free at this time, HoN would get a lot more user base, which would be bound to the game and keep it up.
  4. I guess you mean the status years ago, were Showdown was on 1000 range always and lvl-ups of it only increased the seconds of triggering. Of course this could lead to exploits. Bot now the range of 400 on lvl1 is nearly 1/3 of the screen. Each support-hero has more range with his stun (e.g. VJ with 600 range on his stun). It really happens that Glad can be stunned first, before he can land his Showdown cause of the low range on lvl1.
  5. Yes exactly, you bring it to the point!!! With the low range of Showdown, you must get it up asap on cost of Flagellation or Pitfall. This means: - On lvl 6: 1x Pitfall, 2x Showdown, 1x Ult, only 2x Flagellation - On lvl 8: 1x Pitfall, 4x Showdown, 1x Ult, only 2x Flagellation Against a Str-enemy-Hero you are doing very few dmg at this point. So here my suggestions again ... QoL-Changes: really necessary - Showdown Range from 400/600/800/1000 up to 550/700/850/1000 - Increase of stats per lvl to scale better in lat
  6. Don't forget that the speed of this initial stun-projectile is 0,5x higher as before. Show me how you will run away from this.
  7. Voodoo Jester Acid Cocktail - Initial projectile speed increased from 800 to 1200 units per second. - Bounce projectile speed increased from 600 to 700 units per second. Cursed Ground - Magic Damage per second at level 1 of the ability increased from 6 to 8. Spirit Ward - Cast Range increased from 400 to 600. - Projectile speed increased from 1000 to 1300 units per second. + Voodoo Jester is not a viable pick at higher levels of play. He has received some buffs that make him more reliable throughout the game. Why you buff Voodoo Jester, specially in early game?
  8. I have a nice Workaround for you. When you have all your units on a keybind, e.g. hero on Ctrl+1 and all others on Ctrl+2, you can cycle through them with Tab. To achieve your goal, cycle to your preferred unit by Tab and press Ctrl+2 again. Now it's saved. When you select your units again now with 2, your preferred unit will be selected per default. Hope this helps.
  9. Hi, many thanks. Checked it out on Dota-Website. Now I know, where HoN got the range values for Showdown. They are the same there. I don't know the distance comparison from Dota to HoN. Flagellation is there on 25/45/65/85 but therefore it's only physical. 25/45/65/85 for Glad would be an option too, but let it true dmg. The switch on/off for Flagellation with Staff sounds nice. But I would rather prefer Option 2 - mention in my first post of this thread - to face hard carries better in late, switching Flagellation from multi- to single-target-dmg with e.g. 1,5 x dmg-boos
  10. Never played DOTA 2. I don't know the equivalent of Glad there. How is the hero called there? Really, there you can switch on/off wishplash. How is this working? May be, I should try. Yes exactly, that's what I felt too. You can't face any auto-attack-carry in late with equal Lvl and item level.

    In my eyes BH is just such a overpowered noob hero. When playing against him, he comes around and presses R and Q and you can't do a shit. They even made him more noob-like putting away the boosted dmg of Q-effected targets ... Before 2016 you had at least think to put your Q on yourself or an enemy. His utilities are extreme. A global sight on health-low enemies with a boosted speed and revealing invis. Even more, the whole team see's it. The range of his R is a joke (1000 range !!!) and as it is Superior Magic Dmg you can't even counter it wit
  12. Exactly what I meant. Why the hell, enemy team see's when i showdown myself or a teammate. Nethertheless, your argumentation is well. As u may have recognized, I came apart from a lot of my initial ideas. Let's just discuss the 2 adustments mentioned above, the rest is fine: - a slightly increase of Stats per Lvl-Up (for meta-game) - an increase of the short Showdown range, especially of 400 at lvl 1 (nearly half the screen) These 2 points would only give a slight adjustment to Glad and would not have that impact on balancing.
  13. There are 3 problems with Showdown: - Enemy can cancel it during run-time. As mentioned above via Null (is valid), Storm Spirit during Run-Time (is valid), SH during run-time. According SH: It's ok that Glad can not put Showdown on an ememy with active SH, but not if it is cancelable during run time. - Enemies see, when you showdown yourself or team mate: They are just waiting next to it and kill you - You can not cancel Showdown (for example with Esc-Button). There would be no problem, if enemies see when you showdown yourself, if it would be cancelable
  14. Yes, that's because he is a funny hero to play with his utilities and whip, but he really needs a slight buff. As also already mentioned, he scales very bad from mid to late game. As carry and also in his utility. The reason of lacking utility is, that nearly each enemy carry has an SH in mid-to-late-game and can easily negate Showdown and all other utility spells of Glad. Showdown can even countered by 3 ways: SH, Null or Storm Spirit! Yeah ok, I hope i put some brainstormings in here and may be Glad will be considered in some future patches.
  15. He is not a hero very often picked. So i guess a slight buff would be considerable. Also think the community would welcome it and he would be still balanced. If he would just get an increase of stats per lvl-up and increase of showdown range to 550/700/850/1000, he would be fine! - The lvl-up stats would be good for the metagame, helping him at lack of mana and to get a little bit more tankier. - Showdown range increase would make him more useful in early ganks, cause as mentioned the current range of 400 at lvl 1 is so low ... You must nearly stand next to the enem
  16. Thanks for reply. Yes, that's what i figured out. You can't face any auto-attack-carry in late as mentioned above. That's why i mostly play him mid to place some ganks at side lanes. Nethertheless he is listed as carry in the hero list. But please consider him in some next patches: He got no buff since ages. - a slightly increase of Stats per Lvl-up - especially Str - to get more tanky and survivable - An increase of the Showdown range to 550/700/850/1000 would be a fair point. - Also a slightly increase of Flagellation bonus dmg by 10 poin
  17. Hi guys, played a lot of Gladiator now, mostly mid. Funny hero, but it's so hard to carry with him. Tried a lot of builds. Nethertheless which build, if u come into mid / late game, you make less dmg. Each auto-attack-carry rips you in mid or late game. Even with Showdown, Pitfall, Ult-Combo you are hardly able to chase down enemies in time. And what about the role of Gladiator? He is no full carry, maximum a semi carry. He is not a tank. The main purpose of him just seems to be to catch enemies with escape-options (valk, chronos, ...) that your team can put them do
  18. Kraken just got a buff in previous patches as mention above. He scales very well in each stage of game. Don't would say that he is too weak
  19. Ok, thx for the tipp with the ultimate. But I think, I will give up Gladi. There are simply to much other carries, Glad can not face off.
  20. Hi guys, played a lot of Gladiator now, mostly mid. Funny hero, but i am not able to carry with him. Tried a lot of builds: - Shaman's headress (if a lot of dmg) into Rift shards lvl 4 - Barbed Armor into Rift shards lvl 4 - Dmg Build: Shroud, Twin Blades, Rift shards lvl 4 Nethertheless which build, if u come into mid / late game, I make no dmg even with above items. Even with Showdown, Pitfall, Ult-Combo i am not able to chase down enemies in time. I also tried this PK + Doombringer - Build, but this is so dangerous if you die.
  21. Hi guys! When playing with heroes, which may have controllable units like Warbeast, Ophelia, ... I put the units into own group by for e.g. CTRL + 1 and repeatly selecting by 1, which also centers your screen. On new creeps, I must always do the same. Much effort ... I found out that there is a Hotkey F3, which does this for you and selects all units without hero. You don't have to build groups like mentioned above. Same for F1, which only selects your hero. Problem now: F1 centers screen on your hero, when activated a 2nd time. F3 does not center
  22. Hi, nice interpretation. Just some questions: - What about Pesti? With his Ultimate, Enemy has in most cases -1 Armor. I think, for -1 Armor the dmg is even increased. Is it valid to buy SB on him? - What about Panda? I think SB does not apply to flurry right? Cause it's not an AutoAttack. Is Riftshards better on him? - What about Nomad? In most cases when farmed, you only apply 1 or 2 hits as a Nomad and a weak enemy is dead. Is here SB a solid pick up?
  23. Hi all, I can remember at old forum - years ago - there were such good guides: One Dmg Guide, One Armor Guide, even one about this mysterious Pre- and Post-Attack-Animation In addition there was a own rubric "Guides" were guides of heroes were available. Where are these whole guides? Are those all lost?
  24. Hi, also wondered about the difference and googled this thread. I use Cancel and Hold, also because you can cancel your TP. But now i searched for a way to play like with the Marines in SC 2. There i steamed, pressed Stop and they autoattacked the nearest target. This seems to be possible with Stop in HoN. Then your hero stops moving and autoattacks nearest target. Don't must always right click the target. But only as editional button, e.g. creep farming. Hold or Cancel and Hold is irreplacable!
