The Beginner Guide to Heroes of Newerth

Hi guys ill try to make a guide for Hon one of the bests MOBA it gives
Without further adieu or poor attempts at humor, I present to you the Noob's Guide to Newerth! Here we will cover all the basic things a greenhorn like yourself absolutely needs to know before you can hope to succeed in a game and hopefully show you how to learn your way to the top.
I'll start by touching on a few basic terms you'll run across in this guide, these forums and in player chat:
Hero: The main unit controlled by the player and the other players.
Creep: A creep is an AI controlled unit. "Lane" creeps are creeps that patrol down one of the three lanes while "Neutral" creeps are those you will find scattered in the forests.
Lane: There are 3 lanes in a map - the Top, Middle and Bottom. There should never really be more than two heroes in a single lane unless one team is 'ganking' or 'pushing'. There are three Towers per lane.
Ganking: The act of ambushing an opposing player.
Pushing: The act of attempting to destroy enemy towers.
Defensive Towers: Usually just called Towers. Killing the enemies' towers gives your team a large gold bonus and gets you closer to their throne.
Throne: If this building dies, you win!... or lose, depending on which one just bit the dirt. It's a large structure, flanked by two Towers and located right in front of the Healing Fountain.
Healing Fountain: This is the place where you start out at the beginning of the game. You will heal rapidly while standing in the waters.
Shop: It's where you buy items. There is one located right next to your healing fountain and another four 'hidden' shops around the map. You will see them as white squares on your minimap. Certain items can only be purchased from these shops.
Barracks: There are two types of Barracks - Ranged Barracks and Melee Barracks. You will see one set of them at the end of each lane. If you destroy your enemy's ranged barracks, more powerful ranged creeps will spawn. Likewise, if you destroy the melee barracks, more powerful melee creeps will spawn.

Lesson One: Last-Hitting and Denying.

This is quite possibly the most important aspect of gameplay. Last-Hitting and Denying are used to describe the act of using your hero to always achieve the last hit, or 'killing blow', on an enemy or allied lane creep. "Why would I want to kill my team's creeps?" you may ask. Well the answer is simple. Creeps give gold and experience. So when you kill or "deny" an allied creep, not only does your opponent get 0 gold - as he might have had he killed the creep - but he only recieves 1/3 of the experience for that creep. A skilled "laner" can easily out-level and out-farm his opponents.

Lesson Two: Playing intelligently.

At this point, you know what to do in a lane against the only constant factors in the game, the Creeps. But what about those pesky heroes? Well you don't really know what every enemy hero does do you? The best thing you can do until you get a basic understanding of every hero is to stand back and play defensively. Try not to make yourself look like a juicy steak for the hungry lions of the opposing team. Communicate with your allies. Ask them your questions: "What does this guy do? What does your hero do? What is the best skill build for my hero? What is the best item build for my hero?" and so on. If you don't know, it's better to ask and receive a helpful answer than give your teammates a nasty surprise when you turn up with the definitive word in fail, now in a handy hero form.

Lesson Three: Reading makes you smart.

There is a wealth of information to learn. While it may not seem like fun, I recommend you start a game with just you in it and take your time to read all of the hero descriptions, then choose the hero that most interests you. Once you get in the game, take a few minutes to read all of the item descriptions and learn where they actually are and what they do. You won't have time to read them during an actual game. You might also choose to take this time to practice your last-hitting and denying abilities.

Conclusion: Practice makes perfect!

If at first you don't succeed, try try again! Don't make me keep listing cliches please. You can't realistically expect to be a superawesomepro Heroes of Newerth player by your 10th game but keep chugging along. Shrug off those "NOOB!"s, "OMG U SUK"s and "LERN TOO PLAY"s and keep getting better!

(Oh, and once you do get really good - be sure to go back and beat the snot out of everyone who talked smack to you!)

Also i would only say that ive inspired me from the LoL guide because its a MOBA too and if u like this guide pls fan this
