Heroes of Newerth – Why isn't this game getting more press?

because its in closed beta?

Technically it's not strictly 'closed beta', because if you have a key you can invite your friends. Also during the Christmas period they had a free sign up time where anyone could join the beta. Secondly, why should the game not get more press just because it's in beta? I was just commenting on the fact that not many people are talking about it on a site like N4G that's all.

@ trix0r:
That doesn't mean it's not in closed beta....

Just because they have periods of "FFA" invites to increase the testing numbers does not mean it's open beta.

Either way, the argument is moot. It's a lovely game.

For everyone else:

Also try out LoL (League of Legends)! It's less hardcore and less full of people who think they are hardcore, the game is released and it's free to play.

My friends are addicted to this game.....I really don't see the draw that this game has on people, Sure I'll play it with them sometimes but It gets stale after awhile.

Isn't this that standalone DOTA clone?
Not sure what the connection to Counter-Strike and Dark Age of Camelot is has.

Can someone enlighten me?

is amazing and addicting. DotA is THE ONLY game I've played everyday for over 4 years... and since I started playing HoN - I haven't played DotA once! This game blows DotA away - it's like DotA on steroids. HoN is definitely going to be played by me daily for the next few years.

I love this game greatly. I pre-bought it actually. Only $30.

Me to. Well worth it.
