I wouldn't go back to HoN if I was paid to.

HoN is the superior game, that's for sure (with the graphics and what not).

LoL has the superior community though. The entire time I've played LoL I've never once encountered a greifer/afker or someone who whines/complains the whole game, which in HoN you're guaranteed to have at least one of per match. Most of that is probably attributed to the lack of stat tracking which I'll gladly do without (although I still track my own stats to see how I'm doing, as seen in my sig).

However if people wanna join the TW guild and all the officers I appointed are gone I'll gladly log back on and make some more ppl officer. Don't want TW to lose the ability to represent.

Maybe you're just in ELO hell with Odio or something. If you constantly Q dodge (Q for a game, then leave when you see them picking a retarded champion combination or whatever) or lose a lot then you're gonna get stuck with horrible players.

http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Elo_rating_system
Quote:
Elo hell is a supposed area of the ranked solo queue below around 1200 rating. It is said to be populated with leavers, feeders and just generally poor players. This makes the life of any players queuing up a living hell. There is much debate about the existence and nature of Elo hell in the forums. Some people say it just an excuse used by players as to why they are not ranked higher. Others claim that because they are constantly being placed with bad teammates they can't win enough games in a row to get to where they should be.

Also a double coin weekend which starts tonight I believe

if any of you are good at lol and want a challenge, you might want to check it out

if you're average in lol, you'd probably get destroyed in hon, so don't waste the $10

LoL is for people who are bad at Dota in general. People who play LoL are also people who can't afford to spend 10$ on a game.

Cheap ******s.

I have 3 total leaves, a midrange normal ELO, and a >50% ratio (I can't check how many losses I have).

It's not getting stuck with "horrible" players; it's the fact that there are plenty of whiny little *****es playing the game.

And I'm aware of what ELO hell and Queue dodging are. I don't think my posts in the LoL thread are THAT noob .

People spend way more $$$ on LoL than HoN, which is the reason HoN finally went the coin route (equivalent to RP in LoL).

The only mechanic that I miss is denying creeps. I never cared much for runes so I don't miss that mechanic much (although LoL basically has them with the jungle buffs) and I especially don't miss having to depend on someone buying a courier/wards every match (since 90% of the time no one does, and if you do on an item dependent hero you're screwed).

I will agree that HoN has a much higher skill cap though. You don't need wards as much in LoL, you can't deny creeps, you don't have to worry about rune control, you can't "creep pull" with jungle creeps, no courier, etc. However that lets you focus a lot more on harassing and ganking which almost makes up for it (rather than the slight harassment in HoN, followed by farming creeps @ your tower because you know how to creep pull and whatever).

what didn't you like about hon Rakk?


as far as what Mac said

I think the differences in community are just the way **** is in gaming

casual gamers are nicer, that's the deal

with higher level game play you get expectations and with a game as dependent on teammates as any game out there.. you get people raging at each other when **** goes wrong or people play poorly


EDIT: Happy made the same point mac about lack of denying and all that stuff actually being better, but I call bull**** on that.. just removing options and saying the remaining options are improved because of that is a copout

This is pretty true, however, when you get some games going with non-greifers/whiners it is pretty awesome. Their report a player system seems to have helped a bit. Conversely I can't get into LoL because I find it too simple.

Then again the company that does HoN are pretty horrible. Its been proven that they have been using smurfs to basically greif their customers for fun. The S2 Games CEO is a blatant racist? | A Division by Zer0
Combine this with their previous manipulation of the ranking system to give themselves victories when they lost, banning players.customers when they were winning in a match against them so they couldn't play etc. If the company is like this, how serious can they be about promoting a proper community?

If I'd known the company was like that, even if the game was good I wouldn't have bought it.

I don't know anything about that crap.. but I do think the devs come off as gamers themselves

they have a sense of humor and I think they know their audience/customer base well

that may very well make them dickheads, but I don't see it as a problem
