Hello guys! Long time no see. Ill be posting here some information about Heroes of Newerth.



Heroes of Newerth (ill be refering to this by HoN) is a complete game based ONLY on DotA, the popular Warcraft 3 map. It has some new functions that warcraft 3 doesnt have and obviously the super good graphics that you just cant compare since Warcraft 3 is an old game.

Some of the functions that are really good:

You are able to reconnect if you happen to disconnect from the game by any reason. You have 300 seconds to do it.
Each account works on stats, every match you play is recorded and the Kill/Death ratio is recorded as well. Lets suppose you kill 10 people and die 2 times, thus you will have a 5.0/1 Kill/Death ratio (which makes you a really good player)
Theres something called PSR (Public skill rating) which determines the level the player has. You start with 1500 and the amount of PSR you win or lose per match is determined by the % of winning you have in the waiting room. If 5 players with 1500 psr fight 5 payers with 1700 PSR they will most likely have less chances of winning, therefore they lose less PSR if they lose and they earn more if they win.
Under 1500 PSR means new to the game, noob or just that you are in a bad strike and you've been getting noobs/leavers in your team.
Above 1600 PSR means you are becoming a better player and above 1700 means you're really good. 1800-2000 means you are godly.

The matches are not hosted on the one who creates the room computer, HoN has servers all over the world. For example, if you are in japan and you wanna play with japanese people and have the less lag possible, you will choose a JPN server from the list of servers. If you live in the US you might aswell pick a US server from the list.

You can now follow your friends into matches way easier than warcraft (where you had to find the matchs name in the list) here you just right click your buddy in the friend list then "join match".

Saying no more! Here's the download link for the client, it's still in BETA so post here if you want a beta key or send me a PM with your email so that I can invite you guys and you can add me ^^

http://beta.heroesofnewerth.com/dl_beta.php

The official website is this one:

http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/

Related to the heroes, there are some non-DotA heroes like Puppet master, Maliken, Forsaken archer, and more. But the majority of heroes are from DotA, like Razor (Corrupted Disciple), Lion (Witch Slayer), Lina (Pyromancer), Venomancer (Slither), Etc.

If you wanna know more about the heroes:

Some pretty cool videos for you to watch:





Thats it! I hope you liked it, and the download file is right here, posting it again just in case:

They are different, HoN has better graphics and lots of good features that warcraft doesnt, such as reconnecting from a game when you disconnect or joining the games your friends join by one single click, it also has its downs, heroes are re-worked, not all DotA heroes are in here, but theres also new heroes that you dont see in DotA. Its up to you to decide, if you want to try it you better hurry up, HoN is becoming P2P Sad

This looked like a promising game graphic wise. I would definitely try it out if you didn't have to pay.

Well, I've heard about it, but I recall my brother saying I needed to get a beta key in order to play?

If those were free, I guess I was just too lazy to research about it.

Tanker? well, Accursed is the same as Abbadon, Magmus is Sandking, Pebbles is Tiny and there are few more, its all about going into practice mode first and try all the characthers or play small games like 2v2 with a friend to try all the heroes and scenarios Happy

I've just tried it yesterday. But you see... My connection is so bad that i got kicked even before entering the game... My ID is st4rscr3am, i'm playing on IDGS HON. But it's still unstable, right? I want to try it, but it seems my connection is not strong enough.

@lale haha, that's okay if we're always playing together, bcoz i'm still newb and i need your guide... But lale, in order to register freely here, you got to send a short message service. And i think it's a local server. But i'll give you the link and see if you can login, i'll just have to search for the link again. Nerd

Anyway, i saw for the first time ppl playing HoN yesterday. And my first impression is WOW. The attack animation is very DotA-ish, but the spell and projectile animation is awesome. Must try for DotA lovers!

I have found a Private HoN server for free.

Download link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TKBQQ9K4

PM me your IGN and Password if you want an account because the website is all in spanish. If you wanna try and do it yourself:

http://gaminga.com/juegos_hon.php

Create a Gaminga account first, activate it in your email and then go to here:

http://gaminga.com/juegos_hon_registro.php

And make HoN account.

I'll wait for the PM's LOL. i'm gonna test it as soon as I can and I already made Starfall's account. so... I really hope this works and since its for free ^^

EDIT: the server is kinda fail, you can barely play any game and theres like 800 people playing for only 4-5 matches created. Dont even bother...

Nice to know that there is a thread for HoN!
I started playing when I was in 4th yr college so around 2011-12

I used to play every night, honing my skills but eventually stopped for a year due to business and sucky internet connection.

I'm starting to play again, since monday--sacrificing my sleep just to play. (10pm-1am then 5.30am to prepare for work wth)

My faves are:
Gladiator, Pandamonium, Scout and Maliken Happy
