Before Dota 2 was released, MOBA fans interested in a more "hardcore" take on the genre flocked to Heroes of Newerth, a more serious kind of MOBA for a more serious gamer. Over the years the game's population has dropped due to an increasingly competitive market, but S2 isn't ready to give up yet. On the contrary--it has big plans for the future of its MOBA.
Last week, the developer launched a massive update to its game. Heroes of Newerth 3.0, as it's called, brings with it a suite of changes. We recently had a chance to chat with Nate Garcia, Director of Operations for HoN, to find out how 3.0 reshapes the MOBA.
