If you can't beat 'em, follow 'em.
Starting July 20, 2012, Heroes of Newerth will be following Dota 2's business model of having all heroes for FREE.
As a proper Dota genre game, HoN is best played with a full hero pool available to all players.
From the Director of HoN:
"As part of our continuous efforts to make the HoN gaming experience better, we set out to improve our Free-to-Play rotation and Hero unlocking model. After careful deliberation and tremendous feedback and suggestions from our community, we have come to what we all truly believe to be the best solution for enhancing the HoN experience for every one of our players. We are extremely grateful to all of our dedicated players for helping us take this massive step forward, and look forward to all of you joining us in the celebration of HoN’s natural evolution from Free-to-Play to Free-to-Own. It is an amazing privilege for us to entertain all of you, and with decisions like this we hope to entertain millions more moving forward. Thanks again for all of your support, feedback, and passion."
