I started a thread on it, but no one seemed to care.
And yeah I play it pretty regularly, I have almost 1000 matches played. Been playing since last November. I play some of everything but I prefer tanking (with Gentleman Cho'gath ). I also like ranged carries occasionally (I love ezreal and kog'maw, I'm experimenting with tristana).
I play a bit. It's too much easier than DotA though. They made it WAYYYY newb-friendly.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
I also prefer HoN. Personally, I find HoN to look better, have better gameplay, and have a more competative nature alltogether.
Still, in terms of games, I did quite like League of Legends too (for the 15 or so games I played on it). The game genre of team vs team strategy/hack'n'slash just appeals to me a lot. It's just that HoN is for me a bit better than LoL.
I think I play HoN fairly regularly, having played about 300 games now. Still, if you look at how many games some people have played in the 3/4 months since its release.
Funny fact of a gamer who has no life to speak off. HoN is out for 4 months. The player with the most played games has 3343 games played. A game averages at about 30-45 minutes per game (With early wins as early as 15 minutes to games lasting up to 1 hour, sometimes even longer). Let's say his average is ~30. Means he played roughly 1600 hours, it means that he has played on average 14 hours a day, every day, since retail. .... What the...?
edit: Just checked, his avergae game length is 36 minutes. So it's more like 15 hours a day. :P
The playerbase is also among the most elitist and intolerant of any i have ever seen.
I totally agree there. If you can't stand raging people hating you on the most outragious grounds, then HoN really isn't the type of game to play.
I make a habit out of saying nothing more than info my team can use to win a game, and otherwise not interact with other players other than planning ganks and such. I ignore everything people say that doesn't help me with my game. :p
Still, I love the game for its competative nature and gameplay, not for its playerbase...
