Heroes of Newerth - The Warchief Arrives!


Last Tuesday, the latest patch in Heroes of Newerth showed up, and with it, a new hero, alongside a bunch of balance changes and the usual awful avatars for your delightfulness.

Take a few minutes of your life to check out these nice features…



I can't even imagine how annoying it must be

to make that massive braid every day.


WARCHIEF

ORIGINAL CHARACTER, DO NOT STEAL


Imagine for a moment that old Tauren Chieftain from the original Defense of the Ancients map. Now, transmute him into a human, and add a bunch of abilities taken right from the Shaman from World of Warcraft. Presto, you have a new character for HoN! Phew, they're going to need a break after that much effort.

Creativity aside, the hero is certainly a fresh new addition, because he's Intelligence and can work as a carry, ganker, suic

Heroes of Newerth - Patch 4.1.0 is Here!


The day has finally come! 4.1.0 arrived in Heroes of Newerth, and with it, the beginning of a new Season. There has been a lot of interesting changes, so let's discuss them here, shall we?




OH FROSTBURN, YOU DID IT AGAIN!


At this point I'm just going to believe that they do these kind of things on purpose, like if they're trying to invent a new meme or something. With the latest patch, Gemini was broken… again.

This time he became some kind of immortal dog who can just push everything and be untouchable - even the towers were unable to attack him. Fortunately, I can say that the guys at Frostburn did learned this time, because a few hours after the patch launched, they already hotfixed the situation by putting Gemini in the banned list. The following day, the problem was solved altogether,

Heroes of Newerth - The End of a Season


A few days ago the 2nd season of HoN came to an end, and a bunch of rewards have been delivered to those who achieved the most. Also, the latest patch brought a couple of much needed balance changes, like small nerfs to Nitro, Soulstealer, and the commonly banned Sir Benzington, who became quite popular after HoN 4.0.



Congratulations, enjoy your Nymphora avatar!

But I don't like that hero...

ENJOY IT, DAMN IT!!!!


In a previous article I talked about the overhaul that Frostburn brought to the game. But, alas, they also made a lot of mistakes over their time in charge, mainly in the balance department.


So let's recapitulate them, and also discuss the Season… uuhh… thing.


Talking about balance in Heroes of Newerth

can be summed up in one animated image.


LET'S BREAK STUFF FOR NO REASON!

Cloud Pirates - Jack Sparrow Meets Spock

Scoreboard

Recently, a newly released game caught my attention. It's called Cloud Pirates, and went out of beta last week. Since it's free to play I gave it a shot, as usual, completely oblivious about what would I find there. To my surprise, I… sorry, this isn't easy for me… I actually enjoyed playing it!

So come with me in this journey of grog, flying ships, and space scurvy...


THE GAMEPLAY

A FAMILIAR SETTING


After checking the main menu and playing the tutorial, I discovered, to my enjoyment, that Cloud Pirates is an action MOBA, and extremely similar to one I've played before called Panzar: Forged in Chaos. And when I say similar it is because they're pretty much the same exact game, but with different aesthetics, that's all. I'll get to that later…

The game consist of quick matches in which yo

Hearthstone - The Secret of Playing a Secret Mage


You start a game and you'll probably face extremely, mindless aggressive Warriors or Shamans, boring Jade Druids, or the yawn fest that are Dragon and Miracle Priests. Even worse, with the new Journey to Un'Goro expansion, Crystal Rogues and Taunt Warriors are the norm, and most of the times the frustration of playing against them really sets in. Yeah, it gets old pretty fast, but a lot of times building a deck can be problematic, and trying it against the same decks over and over again becomes a chore.

Here, I bring you an uncommon deck, the Secret Mage. While it's not totally rare, you won't see it that much, and this is supported by the fact that almost nobody runs Eater of Secrets. Journey to Un'Goro changed this a little with the addition of new and interesting cards to help the d

Hearthstone - The Journey to Un'Goro Begins!

Adapt

The new Hearthstone expansion has been launched today, and if you're like me, then you'll probably be totally oblivious to anything related to it. I have no clue which cards are introduced, nor the mechanics involved. So, here I bring to you the opening of 84 packs for your enjoyment, which will also let us learn all about the Journey to Un'Goro.

So, wanna join me or not??



The quality is terribad, I know.

I forgot to change it and then I was all like "OMG LET ME DO IT AGAIN!!1"


HALL OF FAME


As soon as the game starts, you'll be informed that some cards are being moved away from the Standard play in order to be forgotten in Wild. They're the following:

* Ice Lance: remember Ice Mage? Yeah, never mind...

* Conceal: what, no more impossible to stop 8/8 Edwin at turn 2? That's... awesome!

* Po

Diablo III - Patch 2.5.0 is Here!

Armory

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

Heroes of Newerth - A New Beginning

JungleLegion

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

Heroes of Newerth: Chillin in the Back (Part II)


  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

Heroes of Newerth: Chillin in the Back (Part I)


    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
