Summary right now  

Well damn... this just completely ruined my day. 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 fo

It weighs heavy on my heart to login and play HoN today for the very last time. It has been the game that brought me & my friends together for years and years and im glad to have been able to pl

People are still playing BF2 on private servers. Is it possible to run community hosted servers for HoN?

No way they'll allow this, Garena is too greedy. I've been asking them to allow custom maps hosting for years and got rejected every time.

if server costs, is really the problem, they would just allow people to run "private community servers"

The problem with server costs, support tickets,toxicity, smurfing and grefing would end, very quickly. Because the community servers could make up their own rules. And you can enforce things like "application uptake" - meaning you have to apply in order to join a server

Some of us own original copies of the game. Do we lop it into the trashcan ?  we own copies a the game but not the "right" to play it ?  typical 2022

I have hope though. There is a long time to June, a lot of things will happen before June 2022.

Yes, read the rules. You don't own your account and all donations are "donations".

I am sorry to tell you that this isnt the first case of game owners shutting down servers and literally killing any possibility to play it.

20$ game, I can live with that. I feel sorry for the community members who spend hundreds or thousands of $ on this game. Maybe not only to get skins, but to support HoN in general. Those are the people to really feel sorry about imho. But hey, as someone said "Buy this nice avatar, only 20$ .... o btw, you don't own any rights to what you just bought"

I myself spend a few hundreds of $ on this game and I dont regret spending even one $, because I had more then 10 years of constant fun and I met a lot of great people here, even thou I am not that great player and I havent been playing for last few years. But this is what happens with every single game and we all knew this would come some day.

I think it's beyond this. Garena is a very large company that distributes one of the largest eSport game out there in the market (League of Legends) and many other large titles.

I think they have deeper reasoning as to why they are doing what they do, and I personally don't think a few millions or tens of millions of dollars would convince such a large company to change their decision.

Why do you have 400 sub accounts?  I mean basically if you're smurfing or stat resetting why not just do it on a few accounts many times?

There has not been given a real reason as to why the game is suddenly scheduled to be shut down.

And private servers / LAN functionality should be possible right? We have a different client than in SEA-region / Garena, I dont fully understand. Has Garena made the call to Frostburn to tell them that they are shutting the servers down, due to the costs? I just don't get it. 

The game can't just disappear into darkness just, like that. That would not make sense. 

There are some conspiracy theories going around right now as to why it is the case but I won't say it here as I don't want to get suspended on the forums.

Hopefully someone here can make a decent clone and put it on Steam,  I'm sure there will be some backers and people to spend money,  I'd buy it myself to continue playing.

Hopefully it would be using the K2 engine, which was why I loved HoN. Maybe there will be a K3 engine in the future?

COD2 is the best WWII themed FPS and I think it is not supported by Activision anymore. It has an awesome community named "Outlaw" with its own server and discord. I think HoN can follow this path, if there won't be an official support from Garena or any other company.

Similiar with CoD4x even though there might not be as many players as it used to be.

HoN belongs to Garena. If Garena decides HoN dies, than FB can complain but aside of that there is probably nothing they can do about it.
I haven't heard an official reason for why they are shutting it down, but it's probably mostly just a burden for them which generates no income.
