HoN Pride: A Global Avatar Contest
Watch Your Creation Come To Life
13 - 19 March 2013

From the Brazilians, Russians, and South East Asians to the Americans, Swedish and Europeans, we all know that Heroes of Newerth extends to almost every corner of the globe. The beauty in this is that we have a wide variety of personality and a plethora of unique cultures all coming together for a single cause; to play HoN!

With a player base as diverse as ours, we sometimes lose sight of the different backgrounds that we come from. This is your chance to represent your nation and, at the same time, add an Avatar into the game that you have grown to love.

In the HoN Pride Global Avatar Contest, we give you the chance to show your national pride and create an Avatar around a personality that represents your country. Read the description on how to enter and make sure to follow the rules of entry and soon you might see your Avatar waltzing through the Forests of Caldavar.
