Just so its clear, s2 will not read this, nor would they give a **** if they did. They knew this patch would piss everyone off, so they will steer clear from the forums for a while.
Never have I been more outraged than when I looked at the patch notes this morning. A few months back when the shop was added, Maliken made several posts talking about how the store was not for the company to make but, but for the company to allow its playerbase wanted customization. Ive been playing this game since July 2009, and it was truly an amazing game, and the game itself is great, but the business route they are taking with this, is ****ing irritating.
Now first of all, S2 knows that every ****ing person thats been playing this game(exception is ignorant ****s and little kids) would be pissed off about this patch. Its not about the fact that I've spent well over a hundred dollars on this game, in fact, I did that because i wanted to. I wanted the gold coins for cool new avatars, I wanted smurf accounts to play with friends, and I wanted to see ***** slapped written across my screen in a fags voice when i smackdowned some scrub. But its the fact that you mother****ers should have a business ethic, and stick with it. Its so obvious what your intentions are.
TO ALL PEOPLE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE F2P SWITCH:
S2 is done with you Legacy people. They truly DO NOT care if you continue to play. Sure a few of you will buy gold coins every now and then, but their real money, is coming from the F2P who are buying heroes, buying tokens and early access. They do not, and have no reason to, give a **** about you/me any longer. Our opinions mean nothing, and they are such ****ing liars? How many times did they say HON was a one time fee of 30$? THEN OH, 10$ accounts. How pissed off are you, when you pay 30$ for an account, and the next day, they are 10$? What can you do with 20 dollars? This company tries to squeeze every ****ing penny out of its playerbase that it can, and its gotten to the point that i cant even bring myself to open up matchmaking anymore without being sickened but the fact that I, a person who has put AMPLE, and by ample i mean 10000+ games, time into this game, because i truly loved it. It has been going south as of recently, and its getting worse and worse.
There is a reason i dont play LOL, and its not because the game is ****ing amazing, let me tell you. The game ****ing blows dick in comparison to hon, in almost every single way. BUT, LOL is f2p, so instead of having some pride in the fact that your game is much better, and that you have created something that your customers are happy with, you **** all over them. Early access is beyond despicable, and i cant even understand how you ****dicks sleep at night knowing that you are ****ing over every loyal customer youve ever had, and i mean, thats all we are is customers right? Someone that puts food on your table. Anyways, **** you maliken, take a big dick in your gaping *******.

Same way bro, read it all through. Live through the good times and the bad times together.
Why the **** are you whining over price? You still have access and will continue to have access to all the heroes/items/update that they will be working on and releasing. I seriously urge you to ****ing think twice before uttering some baseless stupid ****.
cant agree more with this guy.... truely true, im so out when dota2 comes out , i was gonna stay with hon, but nop, never support u again. waste of money on this company, the game will fall soon.
You realize this is a great move for everyone right? HoN is a better game than League, anyone who says otherwise is full of crap. the only thing keeping league players from playing hon is the price tag. once they try it and enjoy it, they will spend money on it.
more money = more features and continued support.
For the continued health and growth on hon, this is the best move for them.
I guess i'm happy HoN went F2P it means more players however the early access part twisted my brain.
However when TF2 went F2P the game lost its touch somehow, for some reason it wasn't fun anymore.
Same thing is happening to me in HoN i'm not finding it quite as enjoyable anymore. I guess that's because i paid for the game and now everyone else can play it for free.
I don't care if i get all heroes, F2P players can get all heroes as well.
OP is pissed he can't ninja pick Monkey King.

F#ck you, get out of my store.
My goal is for at least one of my heroes to be ported into HoN! Help my cause and get S2 to see these!

OP, a company can change its business model any time. That is what S2 has done now. All that you can ask is for some incentive/compensation due to the change in the business model.
But I am disappointed at the early access, cuz it is ONE month wait time to play a hero. Basically.
Maliken you can suck my dick too. DRY.

released for free to the rest of the legacy players”
This has nothing to do with the fact that im mad about costs, Im mad that instead of sticking to their integrity, they go with where the moneys at. as if 16 million dollars in account income isnt enough? How much money do people need these days? Is their no honor, or integrity left? Money isnt everything, Pride is worth more.
Lots of republifags in here saying that it's good S2 is grubbing more money. I am disappoint.
