Its only fun if you have a team with all friends. Other than that, it gets really boring.

That's what I've heard from my buddies who play HoN regularly, although I haven't noticed that problem quite as much in LoL.

I have been playing lol since the beta and this game is really going down the drain. Might consider giving HoN a try since I did play dota for a couple years.

Just a tip.. Especially if you are new..

type /ic and you can ignore chat. Type it 4 times and you ignore all team and enemy chat..

Useful when you get a bunch of trolls and immature players.. May take away from the game due to loss of communication..

or if you don't care just laugh at ragers

I've been playing HoN since closed beta. I don't have any experience with LoL but for $10 for a new account, it's pretty much a steal.

If you have no experience with RTS games or haven't played DOTA. The learning curve is really huge.

HoN is really really competitive and it is really based off good teamwork and good hero synergy. You could be the best player in the world teamed up with 4 noobs (for lack of a better word) and lose badly.

The game is really balanced with updates always. Dedicated servers are awesome because if you DC you are able to reconnect within 5 minutes.

The community is really bad though and if you're new to it, put on your flame suits because a lot of players can be really hostile (including myself sometimes). For me it's one of those games I hate it but I love it. It's really awesome when you're winning, but really demoralizing when you're losing. There's no middle ground or playing the game just for the sake of playing a game (my opinion).

Really team-based though communication is a must to come out on top. Also each player is required to know there character's role and carry there own weight.

If you really liked DOTA I think you'll love this game. But with DOTA2 around the corner who knows, I'll probably switch back. Overall really competitive game. One time fee normally $30 but for $10 what have you got to lose.

P.S. they also recently implemented a coin system which you get coins for winning/assists/placing wards what not. You can also purchase coins with real world currency. And they are used to purchase custom skins/account icons/and sounds.

There are those rare games that are really competitive and even which can be really fun for both side.. rare though.. I've been playing dota for years before HoN too.. Several heros i really miss from DotA but HoN has many more advantaged explained above..

Also for some reason, even when heros are the same in both games, I rape so much more with the dota versions.. It must be a mental thing.

Looks like dota added some extra heros I never heard of before too..

Dota heros > Hon Heroes.. Hon has better interface, graphics, severs, and everything else

So true but the reverse is true as well. There were heroes in DOTA that I never touched, Tiny and Nevermore come to mind. But in HoN I absolutely love them (Pebbles and SoulStealer) and really melt some faces
