  1. Afaik there is no "real" fix for this. I think EU (or someone else) suggested having one player use a VPN to avoid this. That should certainly work, but it will involve small costs for that VPN.
  2. Disclaimer: I'm not a GM, I have no insights outside of what has been posted on this forum. If you report a player for verbal abuse, the gameplay is actually not looked at - because it doesn't have any influence on that players guilt. If he violated rules and you responded by violating rules, you're both guilty and will be treated the same way! That way however also includes the requirement to be reported by enough players. So if two players reported you and only you reported him (and your rap-score is not "Top Priority"), his chat will not be looked at, while yours will. Afaik GMs ca
  3. But you can still get two feeders in 3v3 that don't want to concede, can't you? If there is not a chance for winning the game anymore, it shouldn't take too long for the enemies to push your base. So you'll probably not have to wait for too long. Also I've won a lot of games with multiple people with 0/8 stats (or similar) in my team. Deaths don't matter much, it matters how they play. I'm perfectly fine with an initiator that initiates, then dies and gets zero kills, but his team can get the kills now. It's much worse to have initiators which don't initiate but rather use their stun
  4. If you "win mid" and the other lanes lost, you didn't win mid. Especially mid is not about out-farming the enemy or killing only the mid-hero. It's also about good ganks. Even if you ganked your side lanes and killed their enemies - if you then decided to push that lane as well, so you get some additional farm, that lane is probably in a worse state than before your kill. Deciding "I won mid" because you subjectively did better than that single enemy in mid-lane, is . If you need a criteria for "winning mid", then choose something like: being immortal by the 15 minute mark, having pick
  5. Please only post in English. Other languages are not allowed.
  6. Actually you should only do the first. The rap-portal is for anything rap-related, customer support will just redirect you there. Oh and you're also not allowed to discuss bans on forums, so I'll close this thread as well
  7. Please only post in English.
  8. Someone could upload the installed client to somewhere and you could manually copy the files to where they should be. However you need to be careful who you trust and whether you want to trust your computer to that guy or not. I would help you, however I'm not running Windows at all so I don't have the Windows client, and I assume you run Windows. Alternatively you can just try again until your power stays up for long enough to actually download the game.
  9. Sounds like you are able to play most of not all roles. Why not ask your team first what they want to play and pick what's left? I mean you might end up playing suicide all the time if you do that. But you can just do this every other game and only have half your games ruined .
  10. Of course it's an option. Supports however have been shifting to early game, so if you take hits from them, you have a worse time than you used to.
  11. I used to think this too. But actually in every game I have played with someone jungling who is not Diamond, they don't know how to jungle either. They never gank, always take pull spots and ignore that they see someone roaming into the jungle and just stay there at 10% hp and die. It actually frustrates me so much, that everytime someone calls jungle, I just ban the most cancerous jungle heroes and half of the time they decide "hey I can't play afk jungle, I guess I can dual long as well" after.
  12. For the last one and a half years I have been playing almost exclusively with a Trackball instead of a mouse. It was obvious to me, that I wouldn't be as good as with a mouse, so I'm using a sub-account for it and I'm actually not too much worse. Still keeping myself in Gold 2. I'm mentioning this because I don't think I have reached 70 APM in any of those games. I'm not trolling, just clicking way less than with a mouse. Oh and of course you could avoid this trolling-ban by some program which just clicks around a bunch to increase your APM.
  13. Hey - I had to remove your "proof" from your post since calling out playernames is not allowed. You can directly contact SGMs via the rap-portal or alternatively censor your video and screenshots so one doesn't see who you are suspecting. Oh and I don't think this one action proofs that he has a map-hack, it can just be luck on his side. I mean at that situation there wasn't really a reason to not use stone hide. He wanted the rax and made sure he can continue to attack it.
  14. If you want to know what is bannable and what is not, there's a sub-forum for questions about that: https://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/index.php?/forum/33-report-a-player-feedback/ The behavior you're describing of the Night Hound is probably reportable - but only if he's actually not doing anything else at all. If he's farming all game and nuking everything nearby with his codex, that's completely fine (by the rules). If he's sitting near a team fight while his entire team is dying and he's just waiting to pounce and codex a low target, it's probably not fine. It depends very much on t
  15. Sorry apparently I was not precise : You don't get any gold during the game. You still get silver coins every 10 succesful smackdowns after the game.
  16. I doubt that wouldn't want to play with out Russians. It's not like they are actually worse or anything, the "problem" is usually just the communication with people that can't speak English. That's also not limited to Russians. However I think the reason they are giving you is the actual reason: You can simply choose both regions, which they are probably doing. Now if 8 Russians do that and queue and two other non-Russians just queue in Europe, of course the game will be created in Europe. And if there was a nineth Russian who just queued for Russia, he didn't get into the game. And if th
  17. You have to differentiate between not corroborated and innocent reports. Not corroborated are not innocent, it just means that no one looked at it because you were the only one reporting and don't have top priority either(which takes ages to reach). Blocking your own camps can be reportable, but it depends on the game and judgement of the GM. Anyways, you can complain about innocent reports via the rap portal and should get an explanation. You won't get one for every report you did, but chances are you get one for an individual request. If you're lucky, the GM vote might even get overruled
  18. You can buy taunt from the shop (I think you still need to buy it, right?) If you did, you can now use the Taunt-action ingame - it's default hotkey is N and you can either click it on yourself, which will make you sleep, or click it on an enemy. If you click it on an enemy, your hero will do a little "dance" and your enemy will have a status-effect on it. If you now kill that enemy within 60 seconds, you will get a Smackdown on him - that triggers a special kill sound (of your announcer) and some event to happen where he died. You can buy multiple different events and choose one of them. E.
  19. At first: Discussing bans is not allowed, so I'll close this thread. If you have questions or want to complain about this thing in general - not just complain about your case - there's a forum section for that: https://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/index.php?/forum/33-report-a-player-feedback/ Instead of insulting that guy, next time you should start/install a recording software which can record gameplay and voice chat, upload that unlisted somewhere (e.g. youtube) and include that link in your rap-report. Insulting in voice chat is actually banable, but since it's not recorded, GMs can'
  20. Exactly this ^ - which is why I will close this thread.
  21. Please choose better titles or no one will click your thread Don't write in black on a black background .... If you're banned, then the community can not do anything for you (so this is the wrong section) You can appeal bans via the rap-portal which should also tell you why you are banned. Idk if there are ip bans or what other types of bans. But there probably are some kind of bans which are not limited to accounts (since accounts are free to create)
  22. The problem here is, that not every HoN game needs every role. Sometimes you just need to adept to enemies and not get a carry at all. Easiest example is jungle picks. You definitely don't need a jungler. And if you get one, you might choose to abandon the suicide lane and get someone roaming or a tri-lane. How do you want to reflect that? The system would have to force the strategy on you if it chooses which players it puts together based on their roles. Basically HoN chooses to give you freedom and adds adoption of roles to the relevant skills you need to play MM while other games sim
  23. This topic has nothing to do with HoN. So it should be placed in the Offtopic-area - where I have moved it to.
