Zlapped: Hey guys, welcome to episode number 3 and today’s question is from Jayya017.
Jayya017: Hi Zlapped, When was the last time you played CM (Casual Mode) and why? Do you think it’s fun?
Zlapped: The last time I played casual mode, was actually 2 days ago. There were some unfortunate events in Thailand. So everything was delayed here regarding tournaments. So what Garena decided to do was to give us a casual tournament. Called Ease Tournament. That we could play while we waited for the next HoN Tour season. Thus I had to play casual mode.
Before that I hadn’t played casual in more than 5 years. I’m not even kidding. I hate casual. I don’t think it’s fun, it’s very skill-less. Denies don’t work, you don’t lose experience, there’s no uphill miss.
There’s just so many kill aspects and mechanics that are removed from the game that I just don’t like.
Also of course with the fact if you just get a couple of kills the game is pretty much over. Because you’ll just snowball out of control with your 1000 GPM and the game will simply be over.
A tournament game that I played a couple of weeks back we had a Sandwraith/Thunderbringer lineup. If that game was a normal mode game, that game would have ended. We just got a couple of kills, had tonnes of items and turned the game around.
It just felt very dirty.
So no, I’m not a fan of casual mode, I do not think it’s fun. I do not think it should be in the game at all. But it’s there and it is actually the most popular game mode in HoN. Which I’m not very happy about. But it is what it is.
