The Heroes of Newerth team regrets to announce that Heroes of Newerth’s service will officially come to an end on June 20, 2022.

Most likely gone forever.

Unless that changed within the last two weeks, Garena doesn't want to sell it for some reason

Would probably be a bad bait - but it wouldn't be the first bad thing happening

No way. Why don't you ask for someone to buy/pay the servers so they can at least keep running. No more patches and events but just so the servers are still up. You can't just let this all die. All the avatars that people bought. The accounts are valuable to some. It's sad.

 

There must be a way to at least host private servers....

Any texas oil tycoons playing HoN? Any yacht owners? Any lawyers? Any tiger owners?

So sad that without a way to host private servers and not even local LAN support all these years of work by the devs will just disappear forever in the near future. It is like there won't be any legacy other than memories.

 

Sad times indeed.

Honestly, I don't feel like playing HoN anymore as of right now... cause I know that no matter what I do, or whatever I might buy... it will be gone forever. This has been probably the only game I've played in the last 10 years (like 98% of the time) and I really don't know where to go from here...

Can we not get any updates or any new skins or any events after 20 June? Just leave it in the final version that it will be. And also please set up a monthly cost for server maintenance that the players can fulfil (ofc some will donate more than others), but as a community I think we will always reach the necessary target. 

Please just talk to us and tell us what you need (don't feel shamed to be honest and open with us), but don't make he best game that has ever existed disappear from the face of the planet.

We will do anything in our power, just don't let masterpiece vanish 😢

So many stages of grief in this thread!

 

The game has been dying for a while now guys/girls. It's just a part of life, we grow older, things fade out.

We had a good run, but now it's finally coming to an end.

As a game, I'd wager and say that no other MOBA felt as fluid as this one. Which is why I stuck with it for all these years.

The community... That's a different subject all together!

I wish everyone a good journey looking for their next game, and hopefully you have some good memories when all is said and done!

I have played the game since beta and 95% of my MoBa games are HoN. Make the game so you need to buy it and we need to pay monthly to play it so we can save the best moba game. 

 

Please talk to us ♡

This hurts... I remember getting my beta Key with some friends, going through our first "follow" match, buying the game for my birthday, spending hours and entire weekends playing nothing but HoN, I even have family videos where my children are messing around and you can hear HoN music in the background... It´s a feeling in between frustration/sadness/angriness. Nothing but good memories.

@Manu311 do you have any idea how difficult it is to host a private server?

That depends on who you are and what you have.

HoN used to have a LAN-mode and you could host matches with that without problems. However that mode is long gone.
There are however people that still play that old version or at least try to - building something like match making servers shouldn't be too hard, the main problem is the main game server which I don't think is available anywhere.
If we get that server "somehow", I assume someone will make hosting games possible again 🙂.
