Marc = Maliken?
Given enough time, you can get used to anything. But it won't be fun. I guess I kind of forgot people moving to Dota and LoL to play with friends. If your friends play HoN, no way you ever going to deal with the delay and clunkiness of the other mobas.
In the end it hurt the pleasurability more than bad community or bad balance or whatever.
In the end a true gamer wants his games crisp, eventhough mobas are by nature casual games.
