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

Have you entered the latest Creative Continuum: Minion Madness? If not check out the description below and enter to compete with some of the already awesome submissions from the community! Description
Behind every dastardly devil, evil-doer and conniving villain, there are those that do his dirty work. His loyal and trusted servants. His tried and true friends. His minions!
Only the baddest of the bad have minions surrounding them, doing their dirty work and keeping the gears of their very own Doomsday Machine running. Here in the Newerth Community, we're going mad for minions in celebration of our new hero Klanx, who is delighted to have his very own minions attend to his every whim on the battlefield.
In this creative continuum, we want to see you create your own minions. What kind of minions would you want to have? The fluffy, cute type that distract your enemies into a false sense of security right before you attack. Or the intimidating bruisers that strike fear into the very core of your enemies.
Tap into your creative talent and create your ideal minions! Rules
The rules are really simple, create your own minions. Design, draw, sculpt, etc. You may use any artistic outlet you want to create your loyal servants.
The submissions will be judged on quality, creativity, and originality.

It must be appropriate
It must be your own work
