    Default [HoN] What is S2 working on for next patch.

    Quote Originally Posted by S2Maliken

    ? Match Making with Teams: This system will replace the current match making. It will allow players to enter solo or as team sizes of 2-5 and match players of similar skill (and similar team size) together. The key to this system is the increased use MM should see due to the fact that friends can now use the automated system to play together. We have already done internal testing and continue to tweak and bug fix before we get a beta version out there.

    ? Map Editor / SDK: We are putting an entire new UI on the Map Editor as well as cleaning up a few bugs and adding a couple features. This has been underway a while. We have no dates available, but it is being worked on and is definitely a higher priority for us.

    ? Alternate Hero Avatars: Have you wondered what some of our concept art was for? It is for a feature we will be releasing soon that allows you to play your favorite heroes using a slightly altered hero model & texture. More details regarding this will be released once we have some other things taken care of.

    ? Pathfinding: We have 2 issues that we are currently attempting to resolve - (1) Getting stuck on buildings as you path around them and (2) multi controlling units and allowing the faster unit to properly path to the front and not constantly bump the slower units.

    ? New Heroes: We always have new heroes underway. We plan to constantly add new heroes to the game
    Seems like every major patch is getting more awesome.
    Pathfinding fix, altered hero models(although you can already download shitloads of skins at forums), Team MM and the long awaited Map Editor which people have been whining for since retail.

    I see S2 is looking into "altered hero models" (read skins) as well for some extra cash.
    The other changes look pretty great, HoN is realling going towards being a good game.

    lol...look, the whole LoL vs. HoN thing is over buddy. No need to start that flame war again.

    Besides, if Xfire #'s and this forum are any indication, LoL is winning.

    a person like you who goes to these threads just to post something like that is just a troll.

    ps i can make fun of LoL as much as i want in a HoN thread. only ragers like you will come in here and start bashing.

    and i do play LoL to boot and probably am better than you in both games. so QQ

    It's not like they will charge you money for a slightly-altered (color-change) skin.

    Actually, you trolled first by blatantly attacking LoL...idiot

    @topic I wasn't aware that the matchmaking system was broken lol. Wish LoL has a map editor though.

    Then why are you in this thread? Seems to me you're the one causing this "shitstorm."

    Anyway, the skins will be free, we already paid for the game.

    First Idejder said about this, then Maliken confirmed it and the last is S2Nome said about this in Friday inHouse Game, see the replay on Honcast.com.

    Never cared about ports though. All the recent ports are so rarely played it's not even funny. Gladiator is good though, but requires skill to play him good. Same for Bubbles which sadly most of the HoN people don't have.

    I'm not causing anything son, people before me said that "one game" was better than the "other game" and vice versa. And that's how it starts. I can be in every thread I like until a mod decides otherwise.

    And I would like a source from where you know the skins will be free, the first post said nothing about how much they will cost or not, and considering that apart from the game itself, other features must be paid (stat reset, nick change), it kinda makes sense they might charge a bit of cash for them.

    Ehh...I doubt it. HoN community has already made dozens of skins for each hero so I see no reason to charge for 1 alternate skin. Plus we already paid for the game and a skin can't be compared to something major like stat resetting. Don't mix up 2 different things.

    Well this remains to be seen, but if I was S2 I'd be charging a minor sum for the alternative appearance pack, like 5$ for a bunch of heroes. It's cheap, it covers a lot but not all heroes which leaves room for several more packs. But that's just my 2 cents on the deal.

    Don't think they need such small shit in my view. Just looking up at how many people make sub-accounts, alternative accounts and buy stat resets makes me think they are on the wave already. I've seen numerous people throughout my playtime who have resetted their stats several times, have bought sub-accounts and etc.
    One guy few days ago even said it's his 6th or 7th or...well a lot of resets. But I thought he was jk. Or was he? lol

    Pulling that move off like that would be totally retarded from S2 and would just show how greedy they are.
    Knowing S2 the patch will go live at 30th July or 7th August.
