    I just got a beta key for HoN. Actually looks a bit decent, so I may check it out.

    Anyone else in the beta let me know.

    I was in the beta but never bothered to play it... never caught my interest for some reason. I hear its a more like dota than LoL though.

    HoN is DotA with a new skin. The Heros are the same, the items are the exact same. They all just got new names, new skins, new animations. The skills they felt were not good enough, recieved a heavy buff, so the characters who were imbalanced in DoTA are even more so in HoN.

    If you like that type of game CoX we have a division starting up if you havent noticed of league of legends. Same style of game, but totally revamped graphics, and style of play. Totally new EVERYTHING....

    Give me a holler if you are insterested.

    LoL is so much better...HoN is just a copy/past of dota with better graph

    I've played HoN and LoL, never played Dota, but yeah from my understanding HoN basically is an exact duplicate of Dota (with many additional features) and has transplanted probably the entire playerbase from dota (ie a lot of asshats). HoN doesn't like new players, so if you've never played Dota, you'll be shredded verbally and ingame, since there is no tutorial or practice bots or practice games (at least, yet).

    LoL is much easier, slower paced, has practice games, and seems to have a better balance of heroes (except for a few). The only problem with LoL is the retarded graphics. It looks like a child's game. But you get used to that very quickly, it doesn't detract very much from the game in the long run, imo.
