You can't learn how to play by trying it in a couple of hours. To be good you have to learn the majority of the items and which hero is good for what. But thats the beauty about this game. When you get the hang of it, it really rocks.
I am not playing it much due to limited time, but I keep getting back to it with a couple of friends.
Well, I never really paid attention to the games other than HoN on that chart. The line is just funny as it is
Either way, now gamers can tryout HoN for free and stay if you like it. I'm with HoN ever since I've received a beta key.
