Gamescom Recap: Prophets shines in a packed Koelnmesse Convention Center

That’s a wrap! With more than 335,000 event attendees and over 700 exhibitors, Heroes of Newerth (HoN) swam around in a crowded Gamescom 2014 pool.

How did HoN make a splash? With our newest game mode, Prophets, of course! 

With the help of our fantastic partners at Cooler Master, the HoN Team reeled in European gamers with give-a-ways, sexy Prophets splash art, a €1000 tournament, and the notoriously charming AceJR.

Here’s a play-by-play:

  • Over the course of five days, thousands competed for the title of Gamescom 2014 Prophets Champion. Shout out to our winner, Ertug Eren, tournament champion and proud new owner of €1000!
  • The Prophets finals were featured on the front page of Twitch and casted by the soothing baritones of Beefpotpie and the one-and-only Milkfat.
  • Headsets, mice, and keyboards, oh my! Lots of swag was given away. Lots. We also gave away Ultimate Prophets avatar codes and “EAT. SLEEP. HON.” T-shirts. Very nice!
  • We estimate that nearly 60 friendships were decimated as the result of Prophets’ FFA, skill shot action. … yikes. It’s just a game, bros.*

There you have it! It was an absolute pleasure meeting so many passionate HoN fans face-to-face – thanks for droppin’ by.

See you at the next convention!

*DRAMATIZATION – that never, ever happened. None of it. Competitors were very friendly and respectful. We are not proponents of foul play; nor do we antagonize conflict. Such fun! Happy times!

Welcome to the Creative Continuum #16: ComicHoN. 

Do you like creating art and make people laugh ? Then you came to the right place. This contest is all about having a good time by sharing your own ComicHoN story with the community.

What does comic art mean you ask ? Well the simplest description I can give you is - "a sequence of drawings in boxes that tell an amusing story".

Your art must be submitted in comic format. Read from left to right (Western Style);
You may use any artistic outlet to create your work be it digital or drawn sketches or any other method you usually use to create your artwork;
Submissions must contain at least 1 comic page (minimum of 4 panels per page) , must be your own original work , must be HoN related , must be content appropriate and last but not least no cut and paste or screenshots. Memes and stick figures with hero captions for heads may be funny, but they wont be valid for judging in the contest;
There is no limit to the number of comic art submissions you can do so go nuts and create as many as you wish;
Good luck to all of you;
