Bloodline champions was mentioned earlier. They've now put up a better gameplay video going into the game mechanics in more detail

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zim3Qum9lPA&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bloodlinechampions.com%2Ftrailers.html&feature=player_embedded

Looks like it will play more like a FPS style with active targetting etc. I'm interested

where do you get all those Demigod-like games from smile? Graphically BC looks nice.
Harkonis: He meant aiming like FPS not view from FPP smile

Do you know what the F and P stand for in FPS? slywink  This one isn't.

FPS style  Roll Eyes So we are clear in a RTS game traditionally you click and your unit then does the action - with various casts if appropriate. In the FPS style (in my way of thinking) if we ignore the First person aspect, you point/aim and then shoot. Seemed the easiest way to describe it tbh without having to break it down slywink

ah, I didn't see anything different in BL than HoN. Looks good though.  There are abilities in HoN that fire off where you're aiming just like that video.

The new patch adds a hero, fixes some bugs but most importantly for us I think is that it adds a 3v3 map smile

I love the patcher in this game - download a patch but don't stop the player checking options etc out. Awesome. Anyway onto the patch. Great patch!!

Lobby now shows the players level and what he gains from the game. The shop is hugely improved - now recipes are obvious recipes, not sure about other elements but clicking on a purchased recipe now opens the shop at that item. 3v3 map is still big but not too big.

Soooo i'm up for a game tonight - anyone else game?

the shop also remembers the last item you were looking at when you come back which helps if you were building towards something.

Interestingly the shop changes have received a mixed response - 50:50 on those that love the changes and those that hate them.

I suspect the hard core players don't like them and everyone else does smile

I understand that the new version now supports clans. We just need 5 of us on to create. Do we want to create a gt one tonight or go with qt3. My pref would be a gt one and we could then challenge qt3

I'd like to nominate hark for president

hehe yeah I just don't get the denies. So as you get close to battle you hold your hero and then hit either creeps or your own to get the gold or the deny?

yes, and if there is an enemy in your lane (which there usually is) denying your own creeps is actually more important than getting the last hit because denying them xp is better than getting the gold.

Also since you usually want to be fighting at or near your own towers except when the team begins the push, killing all your own creeps as soon as they hit 50% keeps the enemy creeps pushing closer to your towers.

If you want to add in game chat via xfire

Code:
Code:

LongName=Heroes of Newerth
ShortName=hon
LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\hon\DefaultIcon\
LauncherDirTruncAt=hon.exe

Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% %UA_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS% %UA_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
InGameRenderer=D3D9
InGameFlags=ENABLE_MOUSE|USE_DINPUT_MOUSE

Quote
Add that to the end of xfire_games.ini and enjoy XIG 2.0 in Heroes of Newerth.

http://www.xfire.com/xf/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=1908661#1908661

And on a wow moment

Quote
I need footage. Good footage. We keep replays of all games. Next time you play keep very close track of whats going on. If you experience something that just looks awesome write down the time and a note of what it was. Then at the end of the game take note of the match ID in the upper left of the final scores screen. Make a post in this thread detailing the cool event with the match id and time and what i should look for.

I'm looking for very clear, awesome looking, action. In addition good gameplay / teamwork and heroes working together are key. I want to others to see whats possible with hero ability interaction etc.

FYI This is NOT a showoff your personal skill thread.

How incredible is that - they keep ALL game replays smile

Hi everyone.

If any of you wants to thrash a n00b, I'm in the HoN beta. I have never played DoTA, so by n00b I mean "doesn't know what half the buttons do yet".

As for what kind of a random-seeming first post this is; blame Tals. I've played some DG with Tals, Kossak and Harkonis (sorry if I missed anyone), so Tals invited me to HoN and to sign up here.

You can find me on XFire as disconnnectedsimsum
Or on Impulse as Simsum (Impulse should get friend/chat functionality some time this month, according to Wardell).
I also lurk around Quarter to 3 as Disconnected.

Feel free to get in touch for a game of Heroes of Nowerth, Demigod or Blood Bowl.

It's a good video for just giving an idea of the really basic premise of the game and also give an idea what the game is about. Recommended watching

Nice! You guys fancy a game tonight? I played a bit against the AI - frankly this alone is enough for me to play this over HoN, but it is just so much friendlier than Hon and I like what I see smile

Tals

i played once with AI too, the game is very nice and indeed very friendly. I don't know which one (HoN or LoL) is better at the moment, but when i play LoL more i will know.
I tried Annie for the first time - nice little "harmless" girl with a pet smile. I will play (or better say: learn to play) today so we can hook up on xfire.

For me Demigod is no doubt the best MOBA game on the market. And i know why i'm playing LoL and HoN - because i play quite a lot of Demigod with my friends from Poland and after some time of playing i need a break from it. So when i get tired of Demigod i go for LoL or HoN or anything else and then go back to Demi again smile.

I like HoN and LoL very much, though LoL a bit more. My feeling is thath HoN is focused on competitive play and LoL on playing for fun. When They will get out of beta and be realeased i'd like to buy them all (well LoL is free2play so don't need to buy)
