Today, a new patch for Diablo III has arrived, and with it, an amount of QoL changes. Yep, the game play is pretty much the same, you're going to do the same exact stuff that you always did, over and over again. But this time, we have a couple of things to make it less annoying! Hooray!
THE ARMORY - BRINGING WOW TO DIABLO
Well, since they're bringing Diablo to WoW, I don't see why they can't do the opposite. Don't get me wrong, I actually love this system, and it encourages the player to try different builds without having to break their heads against a wall every time they want to do it.
The armory works like this: you have a wardrobe right next to your stash which lets you save up to five builds, which includes gear, skills, runes, and Kanai powers. You save your current status in one
Been a while since you haven't played Heroes of Newerth? Then perhaps this is the best time to come back, because there've been a lot of new and exciting changes around those lands. And I mean a lot.
In this article I'll do a quick review of the changes in the game, so you, the player, can decide if returning (or discovering!) the lands of Newerth is worth the trouble. But fear not: while this looks all like sparks and rainbows, it's just the first part of two.
I'm just saving my angry ravings for later.
HoN 4.0 - NEWER AND SHINIER
That's right, in December of 2016 the latest big upgrade for HoN launched, and it really gave a breath of fresh air to the game. To summarize the changes in a short list:
* A revamped MMR system that works with leagues instead of numbers.
* A new RAP system that...
A while ago (yeah, like six freaking months!) i wrote an article expressing my humble opinion about the overlooked MOBA Heroes of Newerth. My conclusion was that the real problem wasn’t the game itself,but rather the company behind it, S2.
Even when they did made some serious mistakes which eventually left the population divided, they still managed to keep the game in a stable and balanced state. Yet, in time they just abandoned the lands of Newerth and gave it to another team, the newly formed Frostburn, acquired by Garena Online.
So, let’s now talk about these fellas who, for the record, they already worked on HoN before, so they knew what to do with the game… right?
Too bad, it's me... Frostburn!
Their first decision was to make a gigantic patch to “balance” the...
When you speak of MOBAs, you instantly think of DOTA2, League of Legends and the more recent Heroes of the Storm. There are probably others, but those are the ones who pretty much dominate the current scene.
But before any of those (except LoL which came a little earlier) there was another game, one that was considered at the time as the “improved” version of the original DotA – Heroes of Newerth. These days you could say that is more like an underground game, with very little participation in the overall changes of the industry. Anyone who plays it knows that this shouldn’t be happening, as the product is a fine example of how a MOBA should be.
Nevertheless, HoN chills in the back, mostly visited by a loyal community and wit...
