The new Heroes of Newerth forums

The Heroes of Newerth forums have finally received a long overdue makeover.


Why a makeover?

There were plenty of reasons, some of which are:

  • The old forums were very outdated, and did not offer features a modern platform should be able to
  • The old forums became hard to maintain
    • Key staff members involved in building the forums are no longer working with us
  • The old forums were slow and inefficient
  • The old forums have had some bugs here & there
  • The old forums had tightly coupled integration with the game
    • This means the game and forums were dependent on each other; this dependency has now been removed.


New Features

With new forums comes new features, such as:

  • A new, improved & modernized look and feel
  • A mobile-friendly interface and user experience
  • Response times for web browser actions feel smooth and snappy (nearly instantaneous)
  • Notifications & email notifications
  • New forum banner to broadcast important news
  • See Unread Content (via the Activity tab)
  • View Original & Latest post in a forum thread simply by hovering over it with your mouse cursor
  • Other new features like the Activity Feed, a Leaderboard, and a Staff directory


Current Limitations & Going Forward

That being said, the new forums are not a silver bullet. They are the foundation of doing something better in the future.

As such, the following limitations currently apply:

  • No longer has Custom Account Icon (CAI) integration with your in-game account.
    • However, you can upload your own avatar picture on the forums!
  • Nearly all of the past content from the old forums have not been carried over to the new forums. We are starting off with a clean slate!
  • No more HoN-based emojis and topic icons.
  • Not possible to apply for community/volunteer positions at this time.
    • We will make this available to the public when we are ready!


We are still in the process of configuring the forums to suit our needs, so everything will not be perfect right away. We kindly ask you to have a little patience while this work is being carried out. While doing this, we will strive to remove some of the limitations described above to make the forum useful and user-friendly to everybody! ?


Thank you for your patience!
