HoN 2 DotA is a mod for the awarded Moba game Heroes of Newerth.

It started small, fueled by the growing desire of several Dota a Hon players who wanted the game (Heroes of Newerth) to remain true to its beta roots just like when all its heroes were a direct port of Dota Heroes and featured a slower and perhaps more balanced gameplay.

With the decision from S2 Games of stopping the port of Dota heroes and to focus on making their own hero designs many of the greatest and most unique Dota heroes were left in the dark and would never see the day on HoN's Amazing, Fluid and Modern Engine.

That is where this mod comes in... Trying to bring back that old feeling of balance and legacy from the old beta days that many so dearly miss. We decided, in a bold move, to port the missing Dota heroes to HoN just as if S2 Games never stopped porting them.

The result of that choice, besides the many hours of hard work and months of balancing is perhaps a rewarding stand-alone client with over 25 new Dota Heroes never ported to HoN before adding up to the already 60+ already masterfully ported Dota Heroes by S2 games back in the old days.

Sadly bringing those 25+ newly ported Dota heroes proved to be a challenge to balance when facing the newly designed unique HoN heroes that already featured some of their abilities but all mixed up so... in a very difficult decision we had no other choice but to remove the new HoN heroes from this mod. :(  The Good news is: The Dota Heroes Designs are a proven design tested for many many years and with releases every 3 o 4 months we have a lot of time to balance them even more so the end result is very very balanced gameplay that will feel comfortable for both Dota and HoN players alike.

Main Features as of version 2.7:

- 30+ New Heroes. (Most of them exact Dota heroes ports or at least inspired by them)
- CPU Controlled Ai Bots. (Excellent for new players to learn the game and/or test the new heroes)
- Day one access to whole hero pool. (In HoN2DotA there is no need to unlock/buy heroes or pick them from a limited hero pool, all 90+ heroes are available to the players right from the start).
Day one access to all alt avatars. (In HoN2DotA there is no need to unlock/buy Alt Avatars, all Alt Avatars are available to the players right from the start).
- No internet connection, accounts or registration required. (Just pick a Nick Name and start playing. This is especially convenient for LAN parties since all games created will be visible over TCP/IP connections, over Hamachi, Tunngle or similar ONLINE LAN tools).
- Multiplayer Playable Custom Maps. (Many of the most amazing custom made maps for HoN are playable with this mod not only in Practice mode but in fully featured multiplayer matches)
- Beta Flavour. (This mod uses HoN's old Beta Engine meaning that there are some differences with the most current version so a few features and UI tweaks are missing from the mod but the feeling is closer to the Beta Times which is one of the main purposes of this mod.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy our humble mod and pay homage to the amazing game that powers it! HEROES OF NEWERTH. (Did we mention that it is free? What are you waiting for go and get it!)

What is new in version 2.7:

- Added a new method of changing/switching alt avatars in-game. During the first 60 seconds of the match press the "N" key to change avatars or switch back to the original avatar.
- CPU Controlled Ai Bots have been significantly overhauled, resulting in a much more balanced, smoother and human like experience when facing the bots.
- Added a new way to permanetly show the health bar by pressing the "1" Key. (Apostrophe ' also still works)
Tweaked health bars so it is easier for new players to distinguish friends from foes.

- Added many new Models Addons such as new weapons and Amazing high res textures for many heroes.
- More than 28 new Models and Alt Avatars.

Just wanted to say I am done incorporating all the HD stuff found in HoN 3.0.
This last week has been particularly rewarding since an awesome coder, Xewl, contacted me and offered to aid me with his outstanding modding skills to help speed up the release of the new and probably last version of the HoN2DotA mod... Last with the old engine that is... since he achieved a mayor breakthrough that can only be described as "A dream come true for any HoN modder". That is his project thou… but I will be supporting his endeavor with all the resources I have and everything the HoN2DotA mod has to offer to the gaming community is at his disposal.
This news has motivated me to increase the amount of work hours dedicated to the mod again… so you guys can expect a mayor release within a 2 week period starting today.
