Bump, just noticed that everyone that got an account got 2 invites. Feel free to inv me, would be really appreciated. :thup:
That is not true, I and my three friends did not get any invites at all:(
We had to wait a whole week to get the last one of us in there:(

Same about invites.

What's your name revolver, add meh.
I just played again after like a 3 week break, and we won a 4v5 game.

I find HoN to be very enjoyable. $30 for HoN is not much... considering they are putting all their time and effort in, they are much more financially prepared for the game than LoL. WC3 battlechests in Aus cost anywhere from $50-100, so imo HoN is worth it.

- I find the PSR matchmaking system very shit atm, but it will get better.
- You can play with people from the other side of the world with no lag.
- HoN is still in BETA and has about 20k people on at any one time...
- There is more than 1 map... Plus you can create your own maps in final version.
- LoL looks very cartoony and gay.

But there's so many noobs... that's what I hate. In DotA, it's so much easier for one person to kill five, :) Here... always some feeder.

But the PSR is dumb and I always lose because of noobs. I can't get past like 1575, lol.
I think every 2/5 games for me, it's a 4v5.

I don't experience that at all, though I do find a huge gap between 1500 and 1600.

You should get a group of friends and play together. That brought my PSR from 1200 to 1700. HoN, like DotA is very much based on how well your team works together. Once you break 1600 and start playing 1600+ games you'll find your teamates are much more reliable.

(Evol)ution is nothing without love.
It's the same with LoL, with 1500 and down you get brain-dead puppies, but at 1600+ you get the occasional Stephen Hawking.

I found a group of friends today in a pub stomp against us. We completely destroyed the team of 5 friends on the other side, so we decided to friend each other.

I'll add you tomorrow revolver. :)

LoL is too easy. I played a game yesterday after like a few weeks, and I was 14-0, as a tank non-killer hero... yeap, MVP.

There shouldn't be a leave option, like in GoW2.

True, awesome and cool.

False, one of them will have massive lag, or both will have mediocre lag.


- LoL looks very cartoony and gay.
Not to mention that it has a very weird gameplay.


However, my nick is "Murr395" and "Murre95" (using the first tho).
And I've got... I think, two accs that could be used. Just PM me and I'll give you the account info :p

    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon

    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,

  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    That's about right. I'm just emulating that old-school RPG feel on the Game Boy system. If I had more free time, I would definitely want to add more things.
  • jonas jonas:
    I guess you folks were too old, but those games were our childhoods:p
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Well, I'm about to hit 30 this year, so I'm now officially old.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hey wait a minute!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You guys are youngsters. I am square in the middle of my midlife crisis at 52.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    How are the kids?
