Yup this still looks like DotA.

The characters never seem to shut up. I'm guessing you can turn that off, but who thought the constant repeat of vo was a good idea.

It seems they grabbed some ques from LoL and the good thing is they took it farther than LoL did. Now sadly LoL seems to be behind. I'm never going to play HoN, but I don't want all the competition to convert to another game!

While SC2 has been draining 100% of ReTarDedFisHy's gaming time, the introduction of a possibly shorter game of HoN is very attractive. Want.

Used to just share one with his brother.

Yes! LoL is fun but the art-style, graphics and their lame internet meme-jokes just get on my nerves, it just seems to be for kids (one of the characters is a giant ball of spaghetti for christ sakes). Now Hon seems to be moving in that direction too.

I'm pretty sure the only way to get good teammates in any game is Arranged Team.  This is kind of a universal constant, from MMOs to FPSs to DotAs.

Holy fuck the character he chose is super annoying. Towards the end it was bordering on "Rider, meet horse" levels of annoyance.

Video didn't seem very informative to me, although I will admit I'm not 100% with it at the moment. I didn't get what casual mode was as it didn't seem to be explained very well. I love the store though, hopefully coins aren't too hard to earn through playing the game as I don't think I'd want to spend money on it (and by the looks of it it's bloody expensive!).

HoN is a game that only works if you've played ridiculous amounts of DotA, cause it's got just as horrible an interface and stuff, so you pretty much need to know exactly what to do before coming in. Cause 95% of the playerbase are pro DotA players, and they will fucking MURDER your ass. 
LoL is way more forgiving in that respect.

Casual mode is a good idea, it seemed like most of the assholes from the DotA community went to the HoN community. 
 
Though, League of Legends is more noob friendly and free, so maybe people don't feel as entitled as with HoN. If I was paying for the game I would probably be more pissed off if a noob ruined a 40 minute game for me.
 
Its cool that LoL and HoN have differentiated themselves from eachother. I'm definitely a fan of LoL though.

Oh god, the flamboyant pack thing really is embarrassing. It's just childish and homophobic, however casual mode and the other stuff they are putting in could be cool eventually.

Watching this while in queue for a game of ranked LoL.  Looks pretty decent, competition can be a good thing after all.

I hope this gets more people interested in HoN. The Giantbomb chatroom has two people in it right now :(. If you're from Giant Bomb you should drop by! We won't bite!

@LiquidPrince:  No of course it doesn't run on the same engine as Starcraft silly :)
 
It uses S2's own engine (the K2 engine) that they used for Savage 2. Same engine, just used differently for HoN here.
 
I'm actually happy they are introducing Casual mode. I never played Dota, and the last thing I need is to be chewed out and called uh, interesting names in HoN because I'm a newb and didn't lane properly or what have you. I hope they alsoimprove their tutorial a bit as well.

Casual mode sounds great. I don't have the attention span for normal games anymore and EM is just.... bad.

Which is just trying to be DotA. And actually both projects originated pretty close to each other.

Good for them for making the skins and stuff essentially free, unlike Riot Games who charge through the nose.

I play both LoL and HoN and I have to say.... they are very, very different games.

Not many people realize this but HoN since the beginning was supposed to be a DOTA clone with the engine designed from the ground up for it and they totally did achieve that. This whole LoL vs. HoN thing is kinda pointless they both are going to die anyway when Valve comes out with DotA 2. "
I realize that, I dont think DOTA 2 will be the end of anything but maybe HoN though. LoL is as different from DOTA as Demigod was, the concept is very different. No denies, mastery/skilltrees, summoner skill, boostable skills from items and so on. 
  
Anyway, both are great games. More MOBAs for all of us :)

Last hitting / denying always seemed weird to me.  Looks like they're somewhat trying to deal with that, but I imagine they can't do too much without pissing off the rabid DotA'ers.
 
Also, that "Flamboyant Pack".  Um.  Yeah.  What are they, 12?
