OP  7/01/11 9:01:26 PM#1

Been playing both for a few days now, and I can't decide which game I'd like to invest my cash/time into. To me both the games feel almost identical, so from a newbie perspective, it's hard to pick one over the other. I could play both, but my gaming time won't stretch that far. HoN obviously looks the prettiest but LoL has a graphics update soon, so this isn't an issue really.

 

So, could someone who is experienced in both games give a basic overview/rundown of the pros and cons of both the games please?

 

I like both LoL and HoN so this isn't a debate for which is better, and I'm hoping mmorpg.com include a HoN forum sometime soon. ;)

 

Cheers.

Its probably not wise to invest in HoN simply because when DotA 2 comes out HoN will be forgotten quickly.  DotA 2 may also steal a lot of players from LoL as well, but should survive simply because of the massive player base. 

If you can only spend money on 1 game I would recommend playing LoL for free, then spending money on DotA 2 when its released.

QFT. HON is a nice game, but it will be forgotten soon enough.

 

I play LoL quite a bit, so I can give you some Pros and Cons there.

 

Pros:

Free 2 Play (all content minus skins can be attained for free)

Constantly updated

LOADS of characters

Made by the creators of the massively popular DotA (the concept behind both LoL and HoN)

 

Cons:

Free 2 Play ( Farming money can be a pain and you will be compelled to use IRL money.)

Server goes down every once in a while

Generally negitive community

Where is the logic behind not buying a game now because another game will come out in 6-10 months?

From someone that has been playing both very much at a high level I can also confirm LOL is the ONLY MOBA genre game that is bound to survive some time.

Just an example the last MLG Colombus tourney had 80K Starcraft 2 stream viewers (and they had a mission of koreans over from Seoul...) and the LOL stream had 200K + so.... as you can see its a booming community.

 

Yes it is free so full of children, yes they will flame you so you need to have a thick skin and play for fun and not take them seriously.

 

Yes you have to farm but its fun to not max out level 30 the first week you play....

 

Now a question to all of you..... When is DOTA 2 ballparked out ?

LoL has a lot more people playing and Riot (maker of LoL) actually is putting money where their mouth is and sponsoring various tournements.

So I think LoL will be around longer than HoN.

I brought up DotA 2 mostly because its going to make HoN obsolete very quickly; however, that does leave LoL as the only current viable alternative which is free anyways.  

 

So, the reason you wouldn't buy HoN is not because you want to make another purchase at a later date.  The reason you don't want to buy HoN is because it has no future.

LOL is a much higher quality product. It is supported better, updated more, has a much better community (even despite having a pretty lousy one sometimes), and the dev team is much more creative. HON is essentially a clone of DOTA just with different names and while the graphics may be better than LOL's, the engine is a piece of crap and the animations are very choppy. Also, the community sucks in HON. Did I mention HON's community is terrible?

 Um, yea dont listen to this guy, last time i checked Lol doesnt even have a pause feature or a spectator mode. Hon is updated every 2 weeks, the devs are very active. Hon also went f2p like a day ago, so yea you have to grind heroes now.

serious riot sucks at developing.....this was at their E3

"Hey guys we got 3 new TANKS coming!, oh yeah we also got spectator mode coming soon too"

and that was it, very creative, and S2's engine is far better than riots, it even have built in voice chat, it is stupid for a competitive game to come out without voice chat, spectator mode, or pause feature.

HON has a couple of features LoL doesn't, the issue is that HON usually has around 60k people around playing while LoL easily has 500k at a peak hour.

Other part is that existing HoN players who spent their $40 are a bit upset with the 'spend money or you are 2 champion behind' issue they have.

 It doesnt matter how many people are playing at peak hour because at the end of the day only 10 people can play in a game. When you have to go through loopholes and 3rd party programs to do things a basic competitive game is supposed to do then the game has a problem. There was even an issue where a team lost a shot at $100,000 at a major tournament because one of their players disconected for  minutes, and people want to take this game seriously

Irony is that HoN developer S2 doesn't (or can't) host tournaments LoL developer Riot does.

The number of players playing a game is something someone might look for before deciding what to play.

Esp if the numbers are 8-10 times larger.

At the end of the day, I have respect for Riot for actually putting a sizable sum by hosting these tournements and trying to grow e-sports.

I have respect for them too for growing E-sports but i hate the way they treat their game like shit

and S2 have released information that they are going to do a tournament with a huge prize pool also

I admit that when it comes to marketing Riot shits all over S2, thats for sure.

I love customization and "looks" that don't matter but look different.

 

I don't think HoN has anything.  Hey, I'm terrible at these sorts of games, but I found LoL a hell of a lot better.

It's better to spend time in Hon because when Dota 2 comes you don't want bad habits created by league of legends. Hon is a game that is certainly easier to pick up than Dota, and will help you transition smoothly into that game.

League of legends would just teach you bad habits that will be hard to change and you'll probably suffer from that in Dota 2.

HON has a couple of features LoL doesn't, the issue is that HON usually has around 60k people around playing while LoL easily has 500k at a peak hour.

Other part is that existing HoN players who spent their $40 are a bit upset with the 'spend money or you are 2 champion behind' issue they have.

 It doesnt matter how many people are playing at peak hour because at the end of the day only 10 people can play in a game. When you have to go through loopholes and 3rd party programs to do things a basic competitive game is supposed to do then the game has a problem. There was even an issue where a team lost a shot at $100,000 at a major tournament because one of their players disconected for  minutes, and people want to take this game seriously

Irony is that HoN developer S2 doesn't (or can't) host tournaments LoL developer Riot does.

The number of players playing a game is something someone might look for before deciding what to play.

Esp if the numbers are 8-10 times larger.

At the end of the day, I have respect for Riot for actually putting a sizable sum by hosting these tournements and trying to grow e-sports.

No idea wtf you're talking about, but there are tons of Hon tournaments. Riot didn't even get official tournament status in dreamhack while Hon got it, and will get it again this winter with a bigger prizepool, and Hon will be present in next NASL and MLG, and probably some more to come.

The number of players in this game only affects you in the number of games you might get per day. Hon is quite healthy and it's growing. Anyway, Dota 2 will take over soon so as I said before, playing LoL now will just create bad habits.

Bad habits?  I'm sorry but, I don't think I'm learning any habits from a video game.

League of legends would just teach you bad habits that will be hard to change and you'll probably suffer from that in Dota 2.

If we go by this logic, if I want to play Starcraft 2: expansion Heart of the Swarm in 2012, I shouldn't play CoH, C&C or WarHammer40k?

Huh?
