I played Hon for a long while. I did not like the direction it was going. Although the graphics were good and they game linux friendly I did not like the fact that they sped up gameplay. In my opinion made it more of a twitch based game rather than a skill based.
Also although their graphics were good in team fights i found very little variety and since the effects were flashy, almost a collision of too many graphical effects resulting in just a blast of light.
I also found thier new hero to lack innovation. Now i have not played for about 6 months so my view may be outdated.
P.S. i just found out that they removed the items from the outside shops replacing them with just scrolls and health potions. This ofc changes the strategy greatly. In dota 2 in a high level game the secret shops of each team are warded late game to grab the heros who grab the heros going for their high level items. By taking those items out you lost that strategy.
