Monkey King

So, here's proof that HoN designed their Monkey King in 2009, albeit under a different name. Riot have stolen yet another character design?

Heroes of Newerth has always been similar in some champion abilities and such, but never to this extent. Not that I'm complaining, mind. It's pretty win they steal ideas, it's what the best companies do.

HoN devs have explained they did concept designs for Monkey King before LoL was even in open beta.

Proof of Monkey King concept art for HoN in 2010.

Thank you to the anonymous who provided a link with evidence that shows HoN had the idea first (after ancient mythology that is).
