Heroes of Newerth (also known as HoN) is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game developed by S2 Games. The game is a spiritual successor to the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne custom map Defense of the Ancients.

Classic MOBA gameplay

Heroes of Newerth gameplay pits two teams of players against each other: the Legion and the Hellbourne. Both teams are based at opposite sides of the map in their bases. Each base consists of its own towers, buildings, a hero spawning location, and a central structure. The goal of the match is to either destroy the central structure, the World Tree (for Legion) or Sacrificial Shrine (for Hellbourne), of the opposite team or force them to forfeit. In each match players select heroes with unique skills to combat the other team.

Pro circuit

HoN Tour is the official Heroes of Newerth competitive circuit and is a great opportunity for an esports bet. It runs since 2012. The fourth HoN Tour season began on August 1st 2016 with a Qualification tournament where teams faced off to earn a spot in the upper divisions. Qualifiers ran from August 1st until August 16th and were followed shortly by the start of the regular season.
