I found HoN's interface really clunky as well back when I played on a free trial. It helped lead to my decision of uninstalling the game, as well as how insipid the game is.

yea it doesn't say that and the interface is easy maybe it was you that SUCKED.

btw you can use the old interface, you dont have to use the new one. the new one is easy as hell to navigate but i prefer the old since it is smaller

Woah lol, I dont think s2 is an immature company because I suck ***, Its because of their professionalism. There have been countless instances in which S2 employees have been caught trolling banning and abusing people in game, that ****s intense.

I will say I do suck *** at HoN, but I could care less about my skill, I love HoN, it is in my opinion 20x better than LoL, and a good representation of the original dota, but i'm not arguing any point that has anything to do with my skill, its with how the company is being run.

DotA players hate LoL for it's cartoony style.
Develop DotA 2 with Valve.
Valve's biggest game uses a cartoony style.
DotA is cartoony just like LoL.
Bandwagoners(read:LoL haters) dont know if they should love it or hate it.
Hats.

those ss's are probably 2+ months old so i am willing to bet the UI is a lot different if not the models/textures.

Sorry you are right it indeed does not say that... it says "pwned" instead of "owned". I won that game btw so I must have done something right.

if it's "cartoony" like LoL i probably won't play it. I have no doubt that (contentwise) it's a great game, but after trying LoL on and off I decided I'd rather just play SotIS (which i admit is pretty retarded as far as content/balance goes) than listen to that annoying voice go "an enemy has been slain" and watch the little purple guys throw fairy dust all over the place.

i highly doubt it is going to look like some 16 yr old girl designed it in flash like LoL

All that matters to me regarding this game is the FEEL. The juking, unit pathing and FoW mechanics in HoN just never compared to orig. DOTA, and that was my biggest issue.

The art style looks pretty sweet IMO.

I also really liked all the Warcraft lore intertwined in DOTA. It's going to be missed in DOTA2, but at the end of the day, it's the gaming experience which matters.

unit pathing is significantly better in HoN then dota, imo (not saying much since pathing has always been an issue in both). DotA 2 could be the best ****ing game ever but if it comes out looking like LoL i will not play it. the animation in that game completely 100% ruined any redeeming factor for me

Well it's clearly not going to be a overly cartoonish like LoL. That screenshot almost looks like a D3 art style. When it comes to art, I just hope they don't over do it with spell animations like they did with LoL; your screen being a big cluster **** of cartoon explosions and sparkles and ****.

I like it. It reminds me of TF2.

Also, one million dollar first place prize? That's absurd.

Grim and dark atmosphere?

Dota never really struck me as either of those....

How much do you think this games gonna cost? I think I may buy it on release, I like LoL and HoN so I don't think theres any way I wouldn't like this. I actually prefer a brighter more cartoonish style because I feel like it makes things way easier to see, but I agree that the LoL style is definitely overkill.

I would say 20-30.

Valve isnt known for really charging 50$. Portal 2 might have been but its already down to 30.

i have a feeling it is going to cost 40-50. if it does it is total bull**** since it is a strait port of an old game taking all the improvements HoN made to the interface/platform (friends list, MM, replays, etc) and HOPEFULLY implementing them well.

realistically they would be complete dicks to charge more then 30 bucks for this game. now, if it was actually something NEW that took tons of effort to develop that is a different story. i mean they are having a ****ing tourny with millions of dollars on the line and they have not even put the thing through beta...something tells me that it was a pretty easy game to put together.
