Heroes of Newerth F2P, Some Players Protest

As noted on Kotaku, DOTA-inspired strategy game Heroes of Newerth is now officially free-to-play. Here's a little on how this works: "The new basic account is a free account new players receive when they sign up. Once a player has surpassed a certain threshold of play time, or purchase Goblin Coins, their account is upgraded to a Verified account. Players who were already paid users will have Legacy accounts. Legacy accounts receive a lifetime of free access to all HoN heroes and are able to play in Verified Only games, to ensure that experts and beginners are separated. Legacy accounts can no longer be purchased." despite the efforts to strike this balance between free and premium play, the - Heroes of Newerth "Non-constructive Complaints" Forum shows a good deal of player unhappiness at this development. Thanks Yair.

Yep, there's no doubt they have the absolutely worst community I've ever run across for any online (or offline) game. I'm pretty sure you'd find a more enjoyable crowd to hang with in Leavenworth.

I'll even go you one better, Teddy. I wouldn't play it if they were offering to pay me, precisely because of the assholes that make up the majority of the player base.
