Heroes of Newerth

released on May 12, 2010

Heroes of Newerth builds upon the DotA formula and takes it to the next level by delivering cutting edge graphics, fast-paced gameplay, meticulous statistical tracking, and server-client networking that feeds gamers' competitive appetites around the world.

Heroes of Newerth puts two teams of players against each other: the Legion and the Hellbourne. Both teams are based at opposite sides of a map. The standard map is split into three continuous 'lanes' (Two in one of the lesser-played maps), running from one base to the other. Defensive towers are positioned evenly through each lane, until the lanes terminate at a team's base.

After 12 years of competitive release, Heroes of Newerth finally went offline on June 20th 2022.

HoN era antes de DOTA2 o sucessor espiritual mais fiel às mecânicas de Dota.
Enquanto LoL seguiu por um caminho diferente, implementando mudanças significativas de gameplay e uma direção de arte mais colorida e carismática, HoN se manteve mais dark e sóbrio, com gameplay mais fiel às origens, mantendo convenções e sendo de forma geral mais conservador.
Apesar de um gameplay sólido e funcional, a experiência me pareceu similar demais e ligeiramente inferior a Dota, e preferi investir meu tempo no concorrente.
