Honportal

We've merged with http://honportal.org/

We are now officially writing for honportal.org! Don't jump out of your chair. We know you love this blog :D and while Schlesinator and Clutchtastic are going to fully dedicate themselves to Honportal, I am also going to dedicate myself to honportal but I will still write some articles for this blog. I will be doing more "fun" posts on honportal while clutchtastic will be doing a variety of covering professional games etc. Schlesinator will also be doing things like me and pro game coverage too. I know I'm going to dedicate myself to Honportal 100% but that doesn't mean I can't leave the other 50% to this blog. I will be doing about 3-5 posts per week on honportal, and I hope to do about 2-3 posts a week to this blog. So check out http://honportal.org/ it's awesome and they have an amazing professional team, which includes players such as - Freshpro, Chessie, noobG, Limmp, and Moonmeander. So check it out!

Our First Video - Soulstealer Fails

Check it out! We just started a youtube channel and here is Schlesinator's first edited video.  Not too bad if I say so myself.  Leave some comments and tell us what you think!

Underpowered Heroes: 2/15 - Sand Wraith: A Useless Mirage

This article is the part of an ongoing series presented by Level 5 Codex Blog. In it, we detail the current overpowered and underpowered heroes in Heroes of Newerth. The series will adapt and evolve just as Heroes of Newerth adapts and evolves.

In Heroes of Newerth, Sand Wraith used to be a god.  In a game dominated for a while by hard meele carries - Chronos, Magebane, Dark Lady, etc. - Sand Wraith was the hardest of the hard (que the jokes).  His dissipate was even more ridiculous pre-nerf; instead of 4/8/12/16 it was 5/10/15/20.  That just made Sand Wraith even more tanky.  Core on Sand Wraith was a quick helm of the black legion that made him nearly impossible to kill early game, boots (red or steam depending) and then a mock of brilliance as quick as possible.  The mock had two amazing benefits.  First, it increased Sand Wraith's farming ability, allowing him to get items to make him even more tanky, such as a Frostwolf Skull. Second, because Sand Wraith illusions received the mock aura, his ultimate became massively useful in team fights.

Aaaaand We're Back

As anyone who actually looked at this blog every once in a while (which was probably no one, not even my mom), could tell, Schlesinator and I took a 'break.'  Now that doesn't make much sense; we had just started.  We can assure you, it was unplanned, but now we're back. Schlesinator got a sick-nasty new desktop and I got my laptop back from Dell after a two week hiatus - part of the reason behind our absence.  Now, we plan on making this blog bigtime.

The two of us got serious today and sat down and skyped for a few hours and bounced ideas off each other.  We now have lots of new content to add.  But first, I want to introduce DrSpecific as a new contributor.  He brings plenty of skill, knowledge, and humor to the blog.  Back to the content.  The following are ideas on types of posts we are gonna add.
