      Gameplay was fun but the community and devs were so toxic it was impossible to play. Its one thing to shitpost in chat and another to make every single match impossible without someone trying to kill their own team.

              Flux and Scout were honestly my favorite heroes in any game like this. It’s a shame once they started cranking out heroes every two weeks or some shit they just started putting out increasingly gimmicky and complicated concepts instead of sticking to the simple but fun designs that all their best original heroes had. This game was glorious in its glory days.

      Great game for awhile, but funny enough, I think adding too many heroes to the game made it less enjoyable to play. Also Sandwraith, represent.

      MOBAs are a shit genre that eventually get ruined balance-wise. If league was still the same game from 2012 i’d probably still play it

        I’d argue it’s a fine genre that’s over shadowed with years of horrible business models, balancing skewed by skin sales and decade old bugs not being addressed only to be pushed with monthly champ releases adding more to the spaghetti code. If League’s bullshit peaked at Camille, season 9 it would be fine.
        But as of now, champs revive other champs, here’s a Drake that gives you a Sion passive and increased stats, bloated weapons, bloated kits, skins that make tons of spells hard to read or notice.

        I miss old Smite, League, Dota, Dota 2, HoN,Gigantic was shitty but fun, HoTs is okay as a casual niche game (sometimes).

        The genre can work if there was a fully realized game with a set amount of characters that isn’t overwhelming or sparse (whether it be actual space or faggy METAS).

        And lastly, fuck metas.

      I loved the game but this was just so retarded, it just made it so everyone played extremely selfish just to boost their own KD/A. And you were forced to just pick the most dumb KD/A boosting heroes if you wanted to pick carries.

                deadwood was a like a melee lion, his point was to shut down or slow down enemy cores while not needing a lot of farm himself
                tiny needs a blink, or needs to be so far ahead in farm you might as well push mid and end early

      My first experience with HoN was a free weekend. I realised I couldn’t hack it in actual matches and didn’t wanna bring my teams down, so I joined a "noobs only" custom game. It turned out the enemy team was a bunch of high level veterans who mercilessly stomped us and told us to kill ourselves. I wasn’t super discouraged so I tried again, joined another "noobs only" lobby… and the same thing happened.

      This was so long ago and I still remember it.

      The designs on HoN heroes were so much superior compared to Dota 2.
      Dota 2 just did bad copies of the DotA 1 wc3 models while HoN actually did their own take on the heroes, and 99% of the times it was vastly superior.
      Both gameplay and design wise, like the feedback from Flint Beastwood’s ulti vs sniper.

        HoN beta was a carbon copy of Dota 1 and they had icefrog’s blessing. But iirc they had to slightly change everything when he went to work for valve.

          You do not recall correctly. HoN had almost carbon copied the character’s fuctions, but changed pretty much every character to be something unique in appearance, all of this way way before valve doing dota 2 was even a thought.

        HoN was fun but let’s be real; it was basically a 1:1 copy of dota1, almost all the original heroes were unbalanced garbage.

        But I still want to go back and play Nomad, fuck me I’ll never have as much fun with a MOBA ever again.

          Yeah but they still did such a better job at making small changes than Dota 2 did. Like removing RNG bullshit with bashes and such, giving unique cool flavor to abilities like allowing Glacius(Crystal maiden) to freeze her own ability, making snipers shrapnel more bursty and useful, Lina/pyromancer attacks and spells doing a small dots on enemies.

          Lots of cool stuff like that.

          Not only that, take something as simple as Flint doing his ulti, the way he pulls the guns together is such perfect feedback and satisfying.
          Compare that to dota 2 where sniper just stands still and does nothing noticable.
