The problem is most players are going to be playing in the west.. Theyre going to have to give west far bigger servers to cope with the huge number of players and we're back to square one.

HoN is shit if your shit at HoN. LoL can appeal to a casual solo player, HoN won't.

I defend the superior product, I still consider Dota the superior game in in the genre but can't get over the datedness of the engine and the restrictions of the engine. If Dota was in HoN's engine I would stop playing HoN. Maybe when Dota 2 comes out I will move on.

I am equally if not more critical of HoN than I am of LoL maybe because I care about it more because I think it is better.

From beta days, i consider HoN superior grafical wise, better consistency between champions and theyr art.

Gameplay wise, HoN isnt so forgiving, when you dye you loose money e.t.c.., the champions roles are a lot more defined when playing, you cant diverge from a core build, if you try a diferent build it may cost you a match. Some say it is more chalenging than LOL, i say its a superior game but not as fun as LOL.
HoN only recently had a good matchmaking system from what im aware off, while LoL had a good matchmaking system for some time, although its harder to review strategys and review games in LoL.

LoL can be competitive in ranked and fun in casual games, thats its core advantage over HoN.

Comunity wise HoN tends to be more intensive, people pay to play.:wink:

You have hard carries in HON.
Some champs are complete shit late game while others are amazing.
I dont like such gameplay.

I have not heard a single objective argument about why HoN is better than LoL gameplay wise...

Hons art:
unit textures are low res speed textured tripe.
The mobs are generic and uninspired
The ui is unattractive and cumbersome
The fx hurt visual recOgnition of characters (ESP that ugly glow)
The level objects look like juniors first models

The only good part is the level texture is nice.


Maybe in beta it was better but the visuals of that game greatly turned me off.

Whats true is true, the textures are not of a high quality.

HoN's champions and art design just look more "serious" and homogenous compared to LoL's art.

God that is terrible and honestly there are many that are even worse.

Part of what turned me off to the design also is the homogenous appearance. Don't get me wrong both games have consistent style but hon has less detail and is very samey. At least for most of the characters.

Also it is hard to take the art seriously when most of the women have tits that would make yula nova or hanai Miri lol. Don't get me started on the waterbaloon boob anims etc.

Just seems like they were speed texturing and then made it grey for seriousness... While having shit like that retarded turtle... But they are serious and hardcore, like hot topic

in terms of comparison i still prefer HoN style to LOL, its a mater of taste, LoL Its to cartoonish for my taste.

I prefer the darker style of HoN.

Ofc games like battleforge have a bit better grafics, but still...........

Hon's textures are only less saturated and a few contain more noise. Take a closer look and you'll find the hon skins to be horribly cartoony

Is battleforge viable to be played free to play or can you only get good if you spend money?

You have to be good at working the ingame market for a profit if you don't spend money. It IS viable if you have patience
