Or, why human beings are stupid.
All right, the news headline contains the words “Heroes of Newerth”. I hope that has caught everyone’s attention, especially all you Dotards.
Five days after all of GameSync’s 200 HoN beta keys were given out, people are still posting on the forums requesting for a key, even though we have already posted an announcement in the forums declaring that we have none left to give.
People are also posting in the wrong comments thread of news articles that have absolutely nothing to do with Heroes of Newerth.
Now, I’m not sure if this is just a fanatical, die-hard obsession from DotA lovers desperately looking to try out the next evolutionary incarnation of their favourite past-time, or whether the fact that the majority of Dotards out there are just plain infantile idiots who can’t even read simple English. I’m more inclined to lean towards the latter, after viewing this message posted by darksol12:
can you give me a beta key for HoN.. im a female.. who is really in love in playing dota.. and after hearing about HoN, im really excted to play.. plz.. can you give me one??? T_T
my email is
Matafleur, our resident admin here at GameSync, decided to conduct a quick investigation into darksol12’s email address by searching for it on Facebook. Lo and behold, darksol12 is actually a guy.
I have no beef with Defense of the Ancients. I used to be an active DotA player on Battle.net from 2003-2006. I can understand the appeal of DotA and why it’s so popular with the masses.
What I cannot understand, is why the majority of you DotA players continue to act like dumbasses online. You are not doing your community any good with this sort of imbecilic behaviour, especially towards the eyes of non-DotA playing outsiders.
Once again, for posterity and great justice:
1. We have no more HoN keys to give out.
2. No amount of whining, begging, and gender-bending impersonation will change this fact.
3. Your best bet to acquire a HoN beta key, is to join S2 Games’ Facebook page here and hope for another round of beta keys to be given away.
4. We have no more HoN keys to give out.
5. We have no more HoN keys to give out.
I challenge you Dotards to prove me wrong. I would like to see all this hopeless spamming (and spamming in the wrong places, of all things) to STOP. I would also like you all to practice the basic, fundamental life skill of opening your eyes to read instructions before you do anything else.
One thing that the Internet has thought me, is that Human Beings Are Stupid. I expect to be sorely disappointed again, as usual.
If you’ve managed to read the entire article until this far, congratulations. Did you know that the human body can survive for days without the stomach or spleen?
The author’s favourite DotA hero (back in the Eul versions that he played) was the Aquasoul. Robe of the Magi +6 spam ftw.
