    Default HoN is now completely free to play

    No more hero unlocking - all heroes are available from the start. And btw, HoN > Dota 2.

    both games are horrible and boring, would much rather play COH, SC2, DOW,WC3 etc. than ever getting involved with those horrible communities.

    Dota 2 is the best moba game ever created.

    Fact.

    I hate agreeing with a guy that can be such an ass but Dota 2 is beastly. I have well over 500 hours into it without even noticing that much time having passed.

    It's hard to explain, but if you're a competitive gamer it's the shit. Much better setup for E-Sports too. HoN had it's chance and failed... LoL is cool but isn't as "Hardcore".

    You just need to try it for yourself really.

    smite is fucking shit and you should feel bad

    additionally, DotA2 is basically an improved DotA 1 with a freemium model that is vastly superior to League of Legends.

    HoN isn't even considered as competition at this point

    Been playing LoL for years, DOTA 2 and HoN cater to the WC3 DOTA players and I never played the original DOTA, so I have no need to play DOTA 2 or HoN. Plus I only play Proving Grounds and Dominion anyways.

    They are all fun for different reasons.

    I actually preferred HoN over Dota2, and put too many hours into each of them. They are very similar given they both had the same goal, make an improved DotA... both of these are far more intricate and competitive then LoL. LoL just has a low skill ceiling compared to the others. Found LoL fun in that I just didn't give a shit and it was easy to get other friends to try a MOBA when there wasn't as much to learn.

    Dota2 is just slightly slower then HoN, hero attack animations are longer and hero turn rates are slower. HoN has a slightly higher "twitch" input cap. I think HoN does a better job with items; they have a few more great additions that allow teams to actively change/counter the other team late game, and help certain hero's cope with scaling issues allowing a more varied hero pool for competitive matches.

    This would have been a reason for me to switch from Dota to HoN if they did this months ago. Now that Dota 2 is here... don't see what HoN has to offer other than worse balance.

    Pretty much.

    I'm fine with LoL and Smite but I can't see why anyone would choose HoN over Dota 2 other than familiarity. HoN is practically the most redundant of the MOBA games.

    Smite > Dota/LoL/HoN, imo.

    Unless you actually enjoy the "skill" involved with maintaining 100+ click-spam apm. But for me? I'll take manually dodging melee & ranged attacks over RTS controls any day.

    I just hope Hi-Rez doesn't fail to ratchet up the complexity ; more gods, more items, more game mechanics.

    I'm not a bad Dota 2 player by any means and I doubt my APM is anywhere near 100. I suck at RTS games, and I mean really suck.

    As a lover of both Dota 2 and Smite I have to say that Dota 2 has tons more strategy involved and it's way less forgiving.
