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.
