To thank our fans for bearing with us over the last few weeks, S2 Games has added 2,000 silver coins to all HoN accounts. This is enough coins to buy any non-premium item in the store and our way of saying thank you for your patience, loyalty, and understanding.

Additionally, leaves from Tuesday, May 17 through Thursday, June 9 will be removed from all players. This is in response to server issues and reconnection issues during that timeframe.

Please know that we've been working around-the-clock throughout the past few weeks to resolve the problems and have, as a result, implemented new technologies that will help us combat issues like these in the future.

For more information, please see this thread.


 HoN Hits 500,000 Accounts
We are pleased to announce that Heroes of Newerth has hit yet another major benchmark! On Tuesday, June 19, HoN hit 500,000 paid accounts! There has never been a better time to get your Game HoN and welcome any fresh blood!

 Emerald Warden Joins Newerth

The Emerald Warden is a elusive hero wielding a longbow, high-range spells, and the ability to summon the uncontrollable hawk Gawain. He brings with him two unique aspects to Heroes of Newerth--a basic attack that goes beyond 600 range and a flexible passive summon that is just as potent as the Emerald Warden himself; both of which allow him to make short work of enemies both seen and unseen. With a skillset that caters to striking from afar and seeking out hidden opponents, the Emerald Warden will bring his unique blend of hybrid summoning and casting to Newerth this Friday. We hope you will enjoy him, and be sure to check out the spotlight for more detailed ability information!
