Heroes of Newerth

Post  Warchamp7 on Fri Mar 25, 2011 10:46 pm

Just for your information, Heroes of Newerth is 10 dollars until Sunday night.

Sales over, games 30 bucks again. That gets you every hero in the game, no unlocking shit in HoN.

Give 'er a shot.

If you really don't wanna shell out for it, make a trial account

Sweet! Did not really want to spend 30 as I have to buy my brother and I both 3DS games so I did not exactly have the money. Though with this I am getting it now.

Thanks war. Smile

LoL is less complex which means a lot of people can jump in and play it and have fun while there still being that competitive side of it.

HoN is a more complex game but it seems like it would be more rewarding with getting a win then LoL due to the complexity of it and it taking time to learn all the things to it.

From what I played they are both very good games in their own way and each of them have their own flaws.Though I say I am probably going to be a bigger fan of HoN with all the added stuff that LoL does not have. (really like the idea of the different terrain and shops other then the one at the fountain.)

Man. I get HoN and I play one game to find out that my mouse is apparently fucked when and only when I play it. Out side of the game it works fine. But when I played it my mouse kept on disconnecting and would screw me over.

Also a good thing that I think would be good for HoN. Is the option to select AI players in custom games to allow people time to test out their abilities with a new hero without having to rush to much in a normal game. Which would give the player a example of how much a skill can do damage wise and at what level. That is what I did with LoL and I got a lot better with the champions that I did it with.

But regardless of my mouse screwing up I could really get into HoN. Will be picking up a mouse sometime later on today.

The way it looks and the heroes themselves. Some are just copypasted from DotA, and some just dont make any sense at all (im looking at you, bubbles!)
Also, i take great pleasure in (back)stories, context and such. And HoN is just DotA, two sides duking it out, while in LoL, you could have Garen and Katarina, two mortal enemies locked in a love/hate relationship, having to work together in a team, and totally rocking it (great combo)
Also, HoN just felt unnatural, it always took my hero half a second to do what i wanted him to do (walk/attack/ability).

LoL was HoN and DotA the way i wanted it, and after playing battleforge for a loong time and being dissapointed every step of the way, Riot Games sure as hell made a fan out of me.

What?

How doesn't Bubbles make sense. Shit, how the hell can you even play that card with some of the LoL heroes. Annie is a toddler that throws fire and has a living teddy bear.

HoN has backstories too. Bombadier and Dr Repulsor are brothers, Deadwood is Keeper's former shell, Pestilence is one of Moon Queen's royal guard that defected, etc.

Jeraziah and Ophelia are actually siblings and leaders of two mortal enemy alliances that teamed up to fight the Hellbourne.
Hence why Legion is made up of man and beast; Jeraziah led the Legion of Man and Ophelia led the Beast Horde.

That's your connection.

League of Legends is free. There is no rational counter to this statement of fact. Smile

And the level of quality reflects the price :3

But really, I talk to people that play both games and they feel Riot pays much less attention to balance.

Still, I'd like the resident LoL players to give HoN a shot and I'll show em the ropes.

Despite being more of a LoL fan, there is a great counter to this. Requiring a monetary barrier to entry actually prevents a lot of problems, and LoL can probably owe having as bad of a community as it does to the fact that LoL is free to play and you can make as many accounts as you like. This makes people not really fear banning, and less incentivised to follow rules or be pleasant community members. I'm not even really saying HoN has a good community (it may or may not, I don't know), but if LoL wasn't free to play, there would be a lot less poor sportsmanship.

Despite the bad community, I still enjoy it enough that I would recommend the game to friends, but I never play with randoms, only with friends.

I see people say that the other game is unbalanced on both sides. (People who play HoN say LoL is unbalanced and people who play LoL say HoN is unbalanced.) I have to say that seeing and playing with most of the champions. I have to say that there are a lot of things Riot can do to make it more balanced. Such as Rammus, Janna, Noctum, Shen. Just to name a few.

Though I would love to take you up on you showing me the ropes sometime.

Just to make it clear on my opinion, I'm open to playing HoN, but I'm not open to buying it when LoL is essentially the same thing (as a general DotAlike) and free. Seems to me from your description of it, the only thing major HoN has going is all champs avaliable from teh start, but I never minded LoL's champion unlocking tomfoolery cuz I only play maybe 5 champs anyway.

I find it plays a lot smoother, LoL feels jerky and clunky to me.
