I have beta keys to give out for Heroes of Newerth, a dota clone.

http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/

Please pm if you are interested and post your favorite hero from dota.


Edit: This game has 40 heroes so far. 32 of them are exact copies from dota. Axe, Rhasta, Slayer, Omniknight, Lycan, Tiny, Juggernaut, Pudge, etc. are all in this game.

Every single item found in dota is in this game. The game is for pc, mac, and linux.
If you love dota, you'll most likely love this game.

Meepo. He's kinda boring 'till you get his ult, but once you've got three or four guys runnin' around he's so much fun. One of the few melee heroes I enjoy playing.

EDIT: Oh snap, this is from the guys who did Savage? Sweet; I remember really enjoying that game back in the day. Never caught on like it should've, IMHO.

PM sent. My favorite hero is none other than Lanaya, especially if the other team does not have any DOT attacks (veno, qop, viper..kills her refraction). IMO, she is the fastest hero killer bar none.

There is a big NDA on this beta so I can't say much about it. The five people who posted above are now in the beta. I still have a couple more beta invites available.

On the main website http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/ is a link to the facebook fansite of the game. If you become a fan on facebook, you'll get into the beta very soon.

Also according to the facebook website, facebook fans of the game will be first to be in the open beta which will also be very soon.

My favorite dota hero is Demon Witch Lion.

I am interested. However, I'm a Demigod player, not a Dota player. If it's alright, I'll post my favorite Demigod: The Oak.

Wow looks like a lot of DOTA clones are popping up...

And I love the fact that everyone in this thread named a different DOTA character.
Shows a lot about the game; in a good way.

I believe the realm is that of Savage/Savage 2 (Newerth) the rest is all DOTA. You'll see things like the Legionaire which will remind you of Savage, but then he'll play exactly like Axe from DOTA ;)

Oh wow so it's actually made by the Savage 2 team. Amazing. I hope they incorporate their ridiculously awesome stat and replay persistence into HoN.

Savage 2 is a criminally overlooked title.

Well it's like years ago that I played dota, but I think my 'favorite' hero was Windrunner (??). Atleast everyone used her, because with the lightning orb and high attack speed, it was impossible to get away from her.

Nowadays I play Demigod (also a dota clone) and Unclean Beast rocks.

Heh, funny she was just added to Allstars. No lightning attack though.

I already am in the HoN beta, it's not just a DotA clone, it IS DotA with better graphics. Seriously, map design, hero abilities, items, EVERYTHING is ripped of from DotA, which might be a good thing considering the source stuff is awesome, but kind of disappointing for those wanting something slightly different.

Haha, I coulnd't remember her name, so I checked the dota Allstars site. She is also a ranger and has the same looks, so I guessed it was her. Apparently not (btw, she didn't have a lightning attack, but you could buy a lightning orb in the shop, doing more dmg and slowing your enemy).

The nda has been lifted. We can all talk about this game now.

I have been enjoying it greatly, mostly joining newbie games and play with other newbies.

There are tons of people in this beta and I can usually get a game 5v5 going in a minute.

Do the games ever run less than an hour? Because I've played three times, and while I've enjoyed it each time, I just can't invest a block of time in gaming anymore. Hopefully, I was just playing the wrong modes, because the gameplay feels ideal for some quick, say 20 min action. As a total noob, I also found the items and how they're setup too confusing.

I'd imagine it's easier to get one of the many people in the thread to just send out an invite than waiting for some administrator to read comments and send one out.

Maybe, maybe. :lol

Nope, most games are 40 minutes. If you only have 20 minutes, this is not the game for you.

Items are very confusing for newbies. I think it is already easier compared to dota because all the recipes are right there for you to click.

Yeah, I also like how when you click on a recipe, you can automatically buy all the items right inside the recipe. I dunno if that was in DOTA, but it's pretty convenient.
