From my experience, Dota 2's Linux client is superior to HoN's (at least while using an AMD GPU). The developers of HoN also have a new MOBA in beta called Strife, and it also has a Linux client, though I haven't tried it out yet. I like HoN's hero movement more than Dota 2, and I still miss some heroes like Electrician, but overall I prefer Dota 2. It simply has a better matchmaking system, but I wish it would implement something like HoN's public game system. Plus none of my friends play HoN anymore, so Dota is where I have to go if I don't want to solo-queue.

How many times IRL have you heard a female friend say "Looks don't really matter to me. I'm just looking for a nice guy,"

Zero. I have never heard a woman say that. I think the idea of the woman who says this is made up by men who have no other quality other than being "nice" and want someone to blame for their lack of romantic success.

as much as javascript is as shit as python, it's like that annoying relative that you just can't get rid of so you may as well get used to

I'll agree with you for the most part about Javascript, but I don't understand your disdain for Python, and also not sure why you think it's so hard to get rid of. From my experience, it's not all that widely used (and it's also very easy to use and not nearly as cludgy as Javascript).

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
