Thread: HoN first impressions

  1. #1

    HoN first impressions

    so what does everyone think of the game.

    pros:
    very pretty
    fast paced
    good options
    the ability to reconnect to a game literally made me jizz in my pants.

    cons:
    seems every douche from the dota community has hopped onto the HoN community now, poisoning it.
    stat tracking
    stat padding
    fountain camping
    STATS IN GENERAL.


    as it stands right now stat tracking is simply ruining HoN. imo it does nothing but discourage new players, and discourage people to actually try to make a comeback. esp with the prevalence of pubstomping that ive seen around. Keep the W/L ratio, but ditch the K/D one. DotA/HoN IS NOT about hero kills. dragging out games is bad enough in DotA where ur stats arent tracked. Its amplified 10 fold with the implementation of stats.

    thoughts, ideas, criticisms? lets talk HoN.


    I just punched a hurricane! WOOOOO!!!!

    I love Hon. I didn't play dota very much because I got into it so late, but HoN is way easier to learn then dota. The recipe options in the shops is bad ass and seeing what hero you have and what all his stats and abbilities are before the game even starts is sick.

  4. Isn't this still in beta, and still have an nda up?

    nda was lifted

    agree ninja. They need to find some way to reward absolute wins more over stat tracking.

    I completely agree. Whenever I join a game, I check the stats of the other team and bail if anyone has over a 1.0. You'll see motherfuckers with like.. 3.6:1 and you know that's gonna be a terrible waste of your time.

    Things seem to move a bit faster than DoTA. For instance, you walk up against another hero and *POOF* you're dead. No real chance to react or disable them. Maybe it's because I'm so rusty, but everything seems to be moving faster.

    I am still trying to find some time to play... but honestly is disappointing to hear about the stat tracking, I could see how it would fuck everything.
    Good lord are there no good games to play?

    i love the stats for all the wrong reasons. i would never concede a game, and have voted it down when ive been on that end of the spectrum, and i would never turtle in an attempt to save myself from dieing....but man do i giggle when i raise my k/d ratio and xp/min. for me its a motivator...but i agree it needs to be re-worked.

    Any chance getting a HoN specific forum? I'm going to be posting different things often regarding the game, hoping to improve gameplay of the many x'ers that are playing--and it will quite likely overwhelm this forum section as a whole :P

    yeah can we get a hon specific place? id love to be able to pour over raiders vast knowledge. i only played with him a few times, but those few games opened my eyes to holes in my own game.
