Heroes of Newerth

Recommended Posts

So-called blink + ult heroes are amazing at turtling which just helps promote the whole "turtle up and let your carry get farmed"-meta, which is boring to me (and actually benefits heroes like Chronos and Zephyr). S2 already said they'd be focusing on bringing in strong gankers (as opposed to carries and initiators) with the new heroes, so NA is a pretty distinct possibility.

The test patch is up, actual patch..sometime next week I'm guessing. New UI is badass, Valkyrie is amazing, Chronos/Zephyr still pretty OP, Pollywog is alright, Glacius is great.

Heroes of Newerth won an award at GDC these last few days, and it just so happened S2Hunter was demoing the game in a booth. I hung around for a bit to see him instapick Scout in a Single Draft game and harass the hell out of a Pesti/Soul Reaper lane (with DSham on his side.) Fun times.

Apparently it also won the audience award at IGF. Didn't realize S2 was considered an indie studio.

Haha, that's awesome. IIRC Hunter is the owner of the x6 (formerly known as We Heart Pigs) clan, which is the first and only sponsored HoN clan at the moment. That's my useless trivia for the day. :<
