How many TI winners are ex-HoN players? Stats dedicated to the game death

Frostburn Studios closed Heroes of Newerth (HoN) servers on June 20, 2022, after more than a decade. The game had a big impact on Dota 2 and developed a lot of players who achieved the top of the professional scene. Escorenews has collected data about their success in both disciplines.

The richest HoN player is iNSaNiA. HoN has become a brotherly game

Team Liquid captain Aydin "iNSaNiA" Sarkohi was the most successful player in HoN in terms of prize money. During his career, he has won over $50,000 playing for Fnatic and Trademark eSports. He is followed by KheZu, who had the best results in StayGreen along with Freedman brothers Kyle (mostly known as swindlemelonzz in HoN) and ZfreeK. The Swedish brothers Chessie and Limmp were also keen on the game. Brother bands competed in HoN together and then joined compLexity in Dota 2.

13% of TI winners are ex-HoN pros

We counted the number of HoN competitive players who have ever won The International as well. There are 6 of them, 4 of which have become Dota 2 champions as supports. Moreover, 3 of the 9 teams that won TI had at least one ex-HoN player.

Heroes of Newerth has given us 12 years of exciting battles. It's not just a game that silently ceased to exist. It left a huge legacy of six TI champions and many talented players who are the reason we love Dota.
