I personally think [S2]Maliken’s DNA origins are from India or S2’s directors are Indian looking how they’re copying
basically everything from their competitors, well anyways, S2 recently hosted a public poll on the forums asking for opinions on resetting the MMR & keeping it hidden in game lobbies but visible otherwise (somewhat similar to the DotA2 ranking system) with “league rankings” (Bronze, silver, gold etc) in order to lower flaming/griefing which is rampant in the poverty brackets of HoN. If this change happens then this pic here sums up what the community will think of S2.
Heres some fat for you slobbering virgins to chew over. The recent 6.77c changelog gives us an insight to the nerd king himself, our lord and saviour Icefrog, to the recent metagame.
* Tranquil Boots disabled speed reduced from 50 to 25
* Tranquil Boots heal increased from 170 to 250
* Tranquil Boots cooldown increased from 40 to 60
* Tranquil Boots heal duration increased from 10 to 20
This is a long time coming after IG and the other Chinese teams started putting tranq boots onto their carrys. To put it simply, if you have a carry with some kind of creep clearing ability (e.g. luna’s glaives, gyro’s flak cannon, PL’s illusions), you don’t need to invest over 5000g into a battlefury anymore – you just send that small son into the jungle after 10 mins of lane farm and off they go. Tranqs were originally for poor supports or people who needed cheap MS, but became the de-facto ‘carry boot’ and made a lot of agi carries broken.
Now you can still build them on your carries, but with a bigger opportunity cost – if your carry gets ganked, they ain’t running away any time soon and the longer heal duration means that there is a higher risk of jungling with them.
* Illuminate manacost increased from 150 to 150/160/170/180
* Illuminate AOE reduced from 400 to 350
KOTL should be taken behind the barn and given one to the head and another to that fucking fat horse he rides. He’s the very definition of ‘cancer’ – when this small son appears in your lane, you might as well fire up the league of legends client because youre in for a bad time. This nerf probably isn’t enough, but is a step in the right direction. Disgusting pubs should be able to dodge the fat wall of horses and professional KOTLs hiding in the trees aren’t as scary as they used to be. Further, the increase in mana cost makes this something you can’t just waltz around and spam – each one has a higher opportunity cost so you better line up your shots properly you blind virgins.
Being that Nomѐ and I run in the same So-Cal social circles, I see him a lot and he recently agreed to a short interview.
1) So why did you leave S2 Games?
I couldn’t stand Maliken.
2) You have give me more than that, what didn’t you like about him?
He was too nice. Not only did he treat his employees well but he also treated his volunteers even better. When ElementUser quit, Maliken hand wrote him a thank you card and sent him a flesh light for all his hard work. That was such a thoughtful gift. I knew EU wasn’t getting laid since he working all day and night correcting Idejder’s shitty coding. He only gave me some Ben Wa balls when I left.
He stayed overnight in the hospital when KingKtulu was diagnosed with AIDS. He picked me up in his Ferrari when my Civic wouldn’t start in the cold winter. He has a swear jar and a racial slur jar. Every month he donates the money in the jars to the Catholic Church and NAACP. He constantly complimented our designs and never pressured us to put his ideas into the game. He even has a nursing home for old folks. He is a gamer first and a business man second. I just couldn’t take it. The guy was too perfect he made me feel bad about my life.
3) What were Puddiñg’s thoughts on this situation?
She was more obsessed with food and the weather than the work conditions. Though I think she hated her job, she answered phones and read off a piece of paper to do those hero spotlights. I don’t know how I was able to get her on the payroll, but I’m thankful Maliken gave her some sort of job that didn’t involve a mop and a bucket since she only has a GED.
