What if we combined LoL's designers and HoN's engineers.

That's why LoL had replays, observer mode, map making, etc, long before HoN.

The player base crapping all over each other works both ways. In fact I'd say the LoL community is worse in this respect. Simply because of the ignorance factor.

E.g. Saying HoN is a copy paste dota or dota with shiny graphics, claiming it has monthly fees, etc.

Have you been to the HoN forums recently? The prevailing attitude when it comes to LoL is "That noob game? meh." It's just not discussed like HoN is here. Here it's almost like posters have a personal vendetta against S2.

LoL is more casual, and will apparently get these features soon (tm) which is understandable, I suppose? IMO we should have had those features since Season One, but whatever.

Personally I haven't played HoN, but I don't approve of the mindless bashing each community gives the other.
A big problem is that most people that play HoN can try LoL for free, and make judgment. The other way around is a lot harder (also since HoN is harder to get into in general). I know there's trial accounts for HoN, but that requires HoN players to send you invites, which is usually limited to friends. So you have people who hate HoN without ever playing it more often than the other way around.

I also actually don't play HoN, I just watch HoN cast because some of the stuff is really cool. I've also been lately watching DotA replays in anticipation for DOTA 2.

Shadow Demon and Ancient Apparition seem cool. :>

What is different about HoN?
Newer graphics. Different champion names, thats right, not different champions, but different champion names. (Yes I do realise they don't call them champions in HoN).

Go back to HoN, you HoNtard.
You too.
