  1. I'd rather get Engi-Shellshock back, that was more fun ? . But I guess staff could make him playable again as well.
  2. The graphics have been updated. The models are more detailed, the map has been renewed multiple times and the interface has been replaced as well. However the Engine is the same, so every of those changes increased hardware requirements and we're now near the point where cpus can't keep up anymore. A huge effort would have to flow into an entire remake of the game and there's simply no way that this change could generate compensating income. WoW has more players and every single one of them pays over 100$ a year. If you could get 81 Million of players to put 100$ a year into HoN for the
  3. Well you got the Beta-Warrior icon just from playing before the initial release ? . Anyways, I'm still waiting for the Developer-Announcer I suggested in the old forums - would that be a great chance now? ?
  4. There is currently no way to play games via a LAN-connection. The linux-client is not supported, but there are links here: The linux-client works quite well, mac has some problems occasionally. However you could also run the Windows client via wine (or PlayOnLinux). However the windows installer is actually just a downloader which is way worse for your connection. For the linux download, you should be able to continue the download with the "-c"-Option of wget you're using. Sadly there's no torrent.
  5. You can complain all you want - in fact I complained about the time frame myself - but you have to use whatever system that is "forced" onto you or you don't have the right to complain that it doesn't work. If you simply refuse to report people, of course griefers won't get banned. If you get banned yourself, there clearly is a system working that makes GMs look at replays. If you refuse to use that, there's no one else to blame but yourself if people are not getting banned. Similar answer if you "report out of rage". How do you expect your reputation to increase if you simply repo
  6. Indeed getting to that level without others cooperating, is not that easy. Your conclusion is correct, not corroborated reports will not change your rap-reputation (that's how it is called). It took me years to get enough positive reports. However it's easier if you get at least one friend who's willing to also report your reports - he doesn't have to be part of that game!, but the report has to be done within 2 hours of your report. You can also do the other way around and report his reports. Of course Innocent reports will work in the opposite direction, so you should choose that
  7. My single report is enough to reach a GMs screen. That has nothing to do with my volunteer positions, but with how many positive reports I've made. Everyone can reach that state with good reports. Voice chat reports can be made with the in game report function if you put a link to a video with the audio into the comment part of the report. Since an unknown url will probably not cause the GMs to look at it, I recommend uploading it as unlisted youtube video.
  8. I've had numerous of Logitech mice and a couple of keyboards. While the keyboards were at some point worn out (years of 10+ h/day typing) I don't have a single mouse that stopped working or had any kind of defect since my first laser mouse (of course ball-mouses had contact problems all day ?). I'm not gonna recommend any mouse, since my current mouse (G9X) is too expensive for only gaming and I wouldn't buy it anymore. I'm only using the gaming-surface with always the same weight anyways. However not getting blinded by leds is pleasent.
  9. The following things were different, so I doubt I have ruined games ;-): 1. Warcraft 3 (on Bnet) had incooperated lag. Everyone had some lag (I think 500ms). 2. Around 1-2% of games were ended with more than 8 players. Usually 2+ people left within the first 5 minutes. Anyways: I probably ruined more games because I fed for the first couple hundred games because I simply was bad. Even thought I played most of them with a couple of friends which never complained about it. No one ever cared about my ping, even thought everyone had banlist and got pings and location of every player.
  10. That's a whole different "problem". But even in that case, rating also reflects not being able to communicate.
  11. Locking people with a high ping out is going to decrease the playerbase because some people don't get a good ping anywhere (I know since I had bad internet 13 years ago and played DotA with 4-digit pings). The balance should also not be affected if you play on the same ping all the time since it will also reflect your ping. In fact you can accustom pretty well to a big ping. You won't play as good as without one, but it can still be fun. The problem arises if your ping isn't the same all the time. Because in that case you won't accustom to the ping, so it's less fun for you. And your ra
  12. With that framerate and those specs, it would even be strange for the integrated iGPU but I still assume it's somehow used - or your graphics card continues to run in power-saving mode. There's probably a setting somewhere where you can toggle that for individual applications. By the way, you should asked technical questions in the Community Tech Support section to receive more help.
  13. Off Topic discussions are for topics not directly related to HoN ;-). You could have asked that in General Discussion. Anyways, I'll try to respond very briefly: Since 2009 a huge lot of things have changed: Of course a lot of new/changed heroes. But there are also a bunch of changed and new items (e.g. potions don't interupt from enemy creeps anymore), different courier mechanic (everyone has now one and it's free and flying), different map (two kongors now which provide team-based, permanent buffs). So basically there's so much that changed, you have to try it out yourself to fin
  14. Please make threads/posts only in English and choose better titles.
  15. First context: I'm usually playing short support, so I ward a lot. But I haven't played DotA 2 or Lol. Wards really only cost 50 gold unless you get countered. I rarely have problems with paying them. However I have other problems: 1. I can't place them on a different lane without leaving my carry alone 2. I can't buy them because they are out of stock - sometimes for good reasons, sometimes for bad places While the first point might be improved slightly, I have doubts about that. If the allies are bad, they will happily buy the wards and place them where they help them slighly
  16. I have no idea about Mac OSX, however it might be that HoN is using the wrong recording-device. You can probably choose that somewhere on your system. Since this topic doesn't belong in General Discussions but instead inside of Tech Support, I've moved it.
  17. Please only post in English since this is an English-only forum (at least at the moment).
  18. I gave up for now ?. It's pretty tedious to do this on a harddrive with so little space you have to delete the entire generated temporary file between every try. Then wait for 30 minutes until it fails again ?.
  19. Since I usually play short-support, the medium camp being pulled is usually a disadvantage for me. However I enjoy that it's possible. It generates a lot of additional challenge for me and my carry. Either to prevent the pull or even turn it into an early kill. Of course it doesn't always work, but in general the short lane still has the advantage. On one hand OP complains about over-simplifications, but on the other hand he complains about additional challenges as short-lane. Sure it changes the game a little bit, but keeping everything just for the sake of it is rarely the best ch
  20. I wanted to write that ? Quality of life improvements always make games easier but in a good way. Just because playing HoN with a 5" monitor is harder, doesn't make it more fun.
  21. There has been nothing that has been transferred automatically. Every post/thread you recall from the old forum has been transferred manually! You should still be able to find old threads via way-back-machine or similar tools. Feel free to re-create old threads with mods that are still working.
  22. Hi, your "problem" is called vsync. I have no idea how you disable that for AMD and I usually enable it rather than disable it. I don't believe that having below 50ms additional delay (if you just reach 20 fps) is really hurting your performance at all. Either way, you can probably try to run HoN with __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=0 or simply use google to figure out how to disable vsync. In case your mint is running wayland (I don't think that's default for anything other than fedora right now), you can't disable vsync - but HoN doesn't run natively on wayland, so I doubt it ?
  23. Exactly - however I only have a really slow laptop on me right now and Flatpak documentation is quite bad :-(, so I can't really promise anything. But in case it's working and running fine, that could replace the current installer and should work everywhere out of the box.
  24. This - and true strike prevents these misses.
