Doesn't the same apply to you? Both of you just voiced your opinions...

Can we stop responding in this manner? This is just as bad as flaming.

It's probably limited in features or something. It doesn't make sense to have a time/games restriction since you can just sign up for another trial.

Also expect to be raged at hard. The HoN community is absolutely vicious, but if you can get past it and to the point of being at least competent, you'll end up playing it every day and even feeling a little bad if you can't.

It's by far the best $30 I've ever spent on a game.
Don't let this discourage you too much. Most of the people who rage hard are pretty bad - just ignore them. When you get a little accustomed to the game, you'll start seeing less of these. I've had my first rager in 2 weeks yesterday, and I'm currently 1600 rating (1500 is where you start). I fluctuated between 1450-1520 for a while before I got here though, and didn't see many ragers. I've even gotten friendly advice a few times.

God, people, no this game aint free like that League of Legends. It's way more advanced. League of Legends for example have no creep denying, which is important in HoN if you want to slow down enemies
Also, while playing LoL I couldn't see the difference between creeps and heroes.
There's a reason why one is "free" (free as in there are still things you can buy to boost your stats) and other costs money but is somewhat balanced.
Don't know about LoL, but HoN have a great modding community, there are high definition avatars and mods that completely change how heroes look, or just make them high resolution, or completely change the map you're playing on.
There is even an Enfo hero defense (beta) map you can play.

You cannot buy in game items that change the gameplay in HoN, LoL you can buy many over powered items that assure you a win every time you play.
Better to be silent then look like a fool. Your comments lack use of thought. Both games are fun, I prefer LoL

Something tells me that the people in this thread bashing LoL while humping HoN are the exact same people that make HoN's community "worse than WoW's."

I just started playing LoL about a week ago, and I have been having a blast. I'm still a super noob but at least I'm having fun. I've also noticed the community to be pretty helpful overall. I'll check out the HoN trial for myself though, as I have a few friends that play HoN.

I've been playing LoL for awhile now and from my knowledge I don't know of any OP items you can buy using money.

Other people have told me that HoN is a much different game than it was when it was in Beta, so I might try it out now since there's a trial.
post #27 of 96
You can't buy any items in LoL to gain an advantage, *** you talking about... You can buy skins, and heroes, and heroes can be earned with IP by playing anyway.

LoL vs Hon threads are always

Just because you have to pay for a game, doesn't make it better then the free alternative, thats some terrible logic. Feel free to always buy the most expensive item of anything, because it will always be better then the cheaper alternatives? OEM pcs are now better then custom built pc's because OEM's cost more...

On the other hand, the game itself is excellent. It has tons of strategy and is enjoyable to play when members on both teams work together. My advice, try it and ignore the many idiots you will meet online. Just do some reading/training before you jump in.

This applies to LoL too, both are full of raging ******s

Really? I've had a hard time figuring out LoL. I still don't understand everything. It has been a fun experience though. Maybe I'll just steer clear of HoN.
