Well, whatever drama you think you're going to cause: no one really cares. There's 3 people from my college who played the game before me, and I'm sure I would have gotten a beta key at some point, if not from you.

S2Games is a great company, they've been my favorite behind Blizzard since Savage 1, and that's doesn't look to be changing anytime soon. You want to be a hardass and impose strict moral standards in an online community for a game, and that will never work to grow it. I speak from experience, I've been in charge of an online site where I have twice as many posts as you do, Ex, for the past 3-4 years. You have to let the little shit go or you just look like a totalitarian asshole. Are you right? Sure, but you're sure as hell not going to teach people to be moral individuals on a gaming website. If you don't do anything actually social, you're probably not the best teacher of that anyway.


and i don't think it's ex's intention to change their moral values in the slightest, i think it's more his attempt to get rid of the assholes on the site and to make it a community where everyone can actually discuss the game. Right now, any time anyone asks for even the slightest balance change or help if they're a noob, all they get on the HoN forums is the classic "L2P, ur such a noob, game is fine as it is, DOTA is better" ect., which does not make me, personally, want to play the game. Sc may have succeeded well because it has a great community, where people actually are there to have fun.

it really depends on your place of perspective. S2Games thinks they are doing the sensible thing that should be done, and if you look at all the other gaming companies, they are pretty much doing the same thing as S2. Looking at it from Ex's perspective, it looks like they are all money-hungry bastards.

It's called capitalism. It's a bitch. Now let's talk about the game.

alright, played arma today for the first time and got a double kill in the first 2 minutes, but zephyr and thunderbringer on my team were noobs... all zephyr did was jungle, never used his shield, and basically flew into absolute death situations. Thunder only ever used chain lightning, bought a sacrificial stone when he had no kills, and once had a chance to genocide their whole team but said he couldn't because they were too far away... so we wound up losing.

also played a game as moon queen, and got first blood. wound up getting 6 kills, 8 deaths, and 20 assists... basically we had a pwnage tort who always wound up getting kills, even though we were all doing well, and we managed to easily push their mid and take their shrine... but tort, by the end of the game, had 10 charges on sac stone, holy shit.

Argh I hate blood. he pwns me always.
played a game as magebane and did pretty well.
went steam-helm of legion-geometers-brutalizer. and i pretty much pwned. i love blink so much
i played a game as predator. i was lvl 11 and i pwned a thunderbringer level 16 1v1 in a 5v5 game


Sep 17 2009, 11:43 pm ShredderIV Post #46

for mb, you might want to go on a build that plays to his attack speed more. I agree on hotbl, steam, and bane, but i'd rather replace brutalizer with a wingbow, and, if possible, get slash before the hotbl, just cause mb's crazy magic armor gives him a certain survivability, in addition to his blink, so you might want the 25% evasion wingbow gives over hotbl, in addition to faster attack speed to mana burn... just my opinion.

btw, hotbl= helm of the black legion.

any comments? i played mb for a while and do pretty well with him, and this is the general build i use.


Sep 17 2009, 11:45 pm Bar Refaeli Post #47

i was gonna go for a hack slash/wingbow combo but one of my teamates suggested this, and i had never played him before, so i went with that. we pwned either way :D
geometers bane is good with him. cept blinking kind of ruins the effect at times


Sep 17 2009, 11:50 pm ShredderIV Post #48

question... bane gives mana burn right? does it stack with mb's mana burn too? cuz if it doesnt, then it's kinda a lot less worth it for mb imo.


Sep 17 2009, 11:55 pm Bar Refaeli Post #49

I'm pretty sure it stacks


Sep 18 2009, 12:17 am Thuy Post #50

it doesn't stack. it takes the higher mana burn out of the 2, which is his passive.


Sep 18 2009, 12:49 am Neki Post #51

How do you stack magic armor again? Do you buy the item first?

Really a worthless item for magebane since the mana burn doesn't stack. Nullfire blade MIGHT be useful is you need the dispel.


Sep 18 2009, 2:20 am ShredderIV Post #53

but nullfire also doesnt get the mana drain that it has as a passive: verdict, don't get either and get lifesteal so you're both draining their life and mana.

i just love its activation power


Sep 18 2009, 8:53 pm ShredderIV Post #55

btw, does ex still control the clan? and if so or even if not, can we add more people to it or the staredit page on the forums? It kinda seems dumb to exclude everyone from them for not much of a reason.

also, in the forums, ex's name now has a golden shield... wtf?

Think the shield means you've pre-ordered.

Still not worth getting it as a purgestick, you pay a bunch for the manaburn and don't use it. Have another agility teammate get it, if you have one.

My Magebane build is just two 3/6/3's and Steamboots, then I go Slash->Manta Style (whatever it's called). Then I usually end up getting either a Shrunken Head or some sort of armor, depending on what the other team has for disables/damage. If you're fast you can dodge some of the projectile stuns with blink. If I'm farming really well I'll go for a heart to be pretty unkillable.

I'm going to try getting a portal key, though. Should be lots of fun. =D

I haven't been on in a while since I didn't have my desktop with me when I moved into college. I'll have it back this weekend and can start playing again. My name is Atlos if you wanna play.

I play as "N`Hydrolisk" (note the grave accent).
I am a beast when I am Demented Shaman. I'm pretty good with Torturer too. I want to play Glacius more.

Zoan -- Like it's immoral either way imo to manipulate people falsely; just it's gonna be a lot more common to do it with AI
[06:02 pm]
Zoan -- Like it's kinda just their art form. But with AI, any random dude who just wants to manipulate people for selfish reasons can use it instantly
[06:01 pm]
Zoan -- I think everyone believes that people who can actually copy someone else's voice to such a degree that it's indistinguishable have to train for years to do that, and so they wouldn't necessarily use it for evil purposes

Ultraviolet -- I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why

Oh_Man -- guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
