Help HoN reach more people like it did to you years before <3


Recommended Posts

Greetings handsome people, as we all know HoN population is not what it used to be, sometimes queue time is up to 20 - 30 minutes (high rank) and sometimes just the second you load gets into a match, good ol' days when blitz mode was on, war effort, and many other collaborations that gave us rewards for using it (ex: overwolf) manage to afford this awesome game, imagine what could happen if we reach to those veterans who used to play HoN or to new people who are sick of wasting tons of money for a single item when you can get a full avatar changing every skill, or an ultimate avatar which changes with items, all of this without changing the game or becoming pay to win

HoN formula is unique, as well as their heroes 

But HOW DO WE HELP HON REACH MORE PEOPLE? SHOULD I BUY A BILLBOARD IN LAS VEGAS?

No my friend, as we did with the server upgrade there is now a SUPPORT FOR AD tab in the DONATION page, Imagine how many people are sick of same 50 minute game without the option of concede (when the game is obviously lost) so many things HoN is prepared for, SINCE THE BEGGINING 

 

So HoN players, it's time to help HoN reach to more people, if we do this many things could be added and so with the old ones.

The decision is yours, remember when you didn't know how to deny or even play with bubbles, remember when you first downloaded the game without knowing you will be playing it for 10 years.

With nothing more to say, thanks for reading it, I hope you help HoN, stay safe.

I believe that HoN has no right to die, of course new people are needed, but this is marketing and a large amount of investments that developers do not have, I myself am engaged in marketing and I know how big these costs are, we at least have free advertising wherever possible. donations, reduce the price of goods in the store, because for the CIS regions the prices are really cosmic, since there is no currency conversion and orientation to the country's market. I will be glad to donate at least $ 5 a month without compensation, since I am not very rich, but I I don't want to close HoN.

Yup marketing costs are really expensive, doing this in Facebook is a smart move because their advertising is cheaper, I believe we can achieve this meta

Honestly, in terms of work, Facebook is the most terrible advertising representative, regardless of where to send ads on instagram, or Facebook itself, and the minimum spending in my region is $ 100 per month to promote an online game is ridiculous money, for HoH at least $ 1000 per month , provided that advertising will work for at least six months, since advertising for a month is a waste of money, and this is not counting the services of a targetologist for customization and banners.

and it is better to publish ads on YouTube, or twitch, since Instagram is not particularly for games, so considering everything about everything, you need at least $ 10,000 for six months, and no one will give guarantees that they will pay for themselves

I saw donations for advertising, I certainly cannot decide, but in my opinion, it is better to save up money, make a cool video and put it on YouTube, rather than spend money on Facebook, this will be a more practical way out, but no matter how it is I will donate when I receive my salary and I hope everything will be fine

Sadly it's true, but hey! At least they are trying since big population is basically Thai, I will however donate to see how the first month goes, the only way for me to knowing is by asking the staff if HoN population has increased, discord is the best way to know this

This game is over. And as soon as possible people get it, it be better for them. DOnt get me wrong. I am here from beta and enjoyed great time playing this game, but after 2014 or something like that game is going down as years go by. Player count is low in every next year, no updates nothing. Now we got when you need 30min to get que and ONE SINGLE thing what is not changed is attitude of players. In lower bracked players rage on eachother etc all day long. You must play 5 games to get one normal game. Why will some1 waste owne time to get yeld on him when you got great games to play beside hon.

Because you already got used to the yelling and don't care to spend another 10k  hours learning something new.

There is a donation goal for that purpose. Marketing costs money and if you want to support you should donate towards the goal. Facebook is just one platform but people have to spend time (=cash) on keeping it updated. I'm sure that in case sufficient funds are raised, other options can be considered.

I deff enjoy seeing the random posts that are on this subject matter.  I can appreciate the passion of wanting to bring HoN back from the grave.  However there is one singular issue that all of these types of posts share.  So far all of these similar posts are all somehow centered around "Throwing Money At The Game".  It's not a joke.... go to all of these posts and somewhere in that post there is a similar sentiment that revolves around donating more money to the game in hopes that a little "Advertising" might make the game do a 180 on population.  Since when in the "HISTORY" of humanity has "Throwing Money" at a problem "EVER" solved the "PROBLEM"?  Your logic is no different than taking a Boat with a giant hole in the bottom of it and expecting a new paintjob or decals to keep it afloat.  UNLESS! the game addresses the "CORE" issues with the game no amount of shiny new advertisements are going to bring back players.

HoN is not some "Hidden Gem".  Nearly every player who is big into the MOBA Scene (you know the hole demographic) has heard of HoN.  They just choose to not play it given all the bad PR HoN has garnered for itself since it's inception to right now.  It's not a secret that in todays gaming world "Influencers" jeers or cheers play a major impact on how well a game is perceived and received.  For the most part the "Influencers" that we would need to give HoN the cosign are players who already played and left HoN with the rest of the competitive players.

It's also no secret that I am developing a post history of "shi*ting" on the game, but make no mistake that's not what I am doing or intending to do.  I want the current holders of the HoN license to do what their forebearer never did..... Which is actually give a dam* about the competitive players of HoN who all left because what the obviously more modest "Majority" politely asked for was passed over for what the obviously "LOUDER" minority screamed and cried for.

Anyone who is above the age of 30 will know that Advertisements don't sway us.  It's word of mouth from family and friends that compels us to open our wallets.  So feel free to waste money on Ads when the core problems are still very much alive and present.

I mean... HoN 5.0 has to be in the making. That's a reason to marketing.

HoN 5.0 - To a new beginning. 

Then we amp up the effects on some of the heroes, make it look splashy, make a short trailer video and we get it out there. Some who has heard bad things about the game can check it out, see if it has changed with 5.0 and we just have to make sure it has. Switch it up, attract old players. "The Dark Lady is now a support" "Flux the mega-bad ass carry hero who pull enemies to their death" give him bonus attack damage for each unit an enemy has traveled via his spells. 

Make it different, make is exciting. I agree with the guy above me. A lot of my friends who used to play Dota knows about HoN... they just don't like anything about it and that's the general consensus. 😞

Just started playing again, haven't played in 3 years. I really wish HoN got more attention like it deserves. I am nervous going into matches with how intimidatingly competitive the remaining community is. I love it all though and really wish it got more players. I mainly play dota 2, and the one thing that keeps me coming back is the amazing sound design and the spell effects. Everytime I play Dota 2 I always find my self pointing out when a new thing they add reminds me of HoN.

It only makes sense to try to buy out HoN, Garena is not interested in promoting it.

They don't want to sell it either (as you already know). Guess they either have something planned for the IP (not necessarily for the game as we know it) or it's still worth to keep HoN running for some reason.

GM's stop banning everybody for free speech

In whatever country you live or believe that it allows "free speech", try to go to a police officer and throw some insults at him or threaten his family. And see what he thinks about "free speech".
Idk about other countries, but I'd get to pay a nice little "free speech tax" for that in Germany 😓.
I would assume it can get "slightly" worse if you're part of certain minorities and insult the wrong (armed) policemen in America.

You have every right to say what ever swear word you want to a police officer in America. because thankfully the americans uphold the right to free speech to a high standard + its in their constitution. Threatening with violence is another matter.

Sucks to be you. i wouldnt want to live in country where the government controls what language i use. 

Infact i would say its dangerous for you Germans. That your public servants are able to instigate violence upon you if they dont like a certain word you may or may not have said. And you being proud of this is nauseating.

Once you make just a single word illegal you open up the flood gates for every word to be made illegal. 

You won't get banned for simply using swear words in HoN either. You have to direct them at people. And tbh I don't think I ever seen someone just swear to themselves in HoN.

Also on one side I agree that it sucks that you can't say everything you want in Germany (like denying holocausts, suggesting that whatever people should be killed in your opinion or similar things). But on the other side police isn't allowed to use any "violence" against you just for that. They'll just note down your personal information, tell you to stop and you'll get sued for it eventually. (By the way, not only are "words" not allowed, you're also not allowed to openly show swastikas among other things)

Anyways, we're derailing this topic and should stop that (feel free to continue the discussion with me via PM or open an off-topic thread about it) 🙂.
