Heroes of Newerth has a new motherflipping announcer. It’s motherflipping Samuel L motherflipping Jackson, motherflipper

S2 are putting money in all the right parts of development when it comes to Heroes of Newerth. They’re releasing new champions, working on optimisation and balance patches to keep the game fresh for players, and they’ve hired Samuel L Jackson.

Yes, motherflipping Samuel L Jackson.

(I want this motherflipping post to contain the most near-profanity of any sitting post on bucking PCGamesN, bawlsack.)

S2 eSports head on WCS and International clash: "We need to all work together"

Sam Braithwaite is three things: head of eSports at S2 Games, Heroes of Newerth pro, and non-stop consumer of all things electronic and competitive.

“When I first heard about the conflict between the International and the WCS, I was a little bit disappointed," he told PCGN. “Could they have done something about it? Probably. But at the end of the day, there is so much going on."

In fact, as the eSports goings on continue going on, Braithwaite predicts that developers will have to begin collaborating to produce a mutually-beneficial, clash-free global event calendar.

Introducing Strife: How S2's Heroes of Newerth follow-up intends to save the MOBA from itself

If League of Legends is Blu-Ray, then Heroes of Newerth is HD-DVD. Once, one couldn’t be mentioned without reference to the other. But today, in the comment threads where the relative merits of LoL and Valve’s Dota 2 are picked over at length, HoN is rarely mentioned at all.

S2 Games ultimately lost the race for Dota’s audience. But by any other yardstick, Heroes of Newerth is a success that needs no qualification.

Heroes of Newerth accounts hacked, passwords breached; “I guess I’ll do LoL next”, boasts hackerS2 Games revealed that runner-up MOBA Heroes of Newerth was hacked early yesterday morning. The developers have reset all passwords, and strongly recommend players do the same for any and all accounts that might share details with HoN. What's more, if you changed your password on Monday before 3pm EST / 8pm GMT, you’ll need to change it again as a precaution.

“Disregard any out-of-game sources of information at this time," said S2 when the news broke. There’s one source we’re going to make an exception for, though. The hacker has conducted a Reddit AMA, and plans to hack HoN’s servers again on Christmas Day.
