Just for curiosity, some numbers.
All heroes in HoN costs 29 100 in silver coins (you can get them during game) or 13 550 gold coins (only purchase or some promotion like alienware/IGN).
All "champions" in LoL costs 286 050 in "influence points" (you can get them during game) or 62 985 "Riot points" (only purchase).
Let's see closer.
Price in gold coins are ~two times cheaper.
Price in "Riot Points" are ~three times cheaper.
What about cheap heroes?
HoN have minimum price 65 silver coins only for two — Moon Quenn (carry) and Plague Rider (support).
LoL have minimum price 450 influence points for 7 — 3 carry, 2 support, tank-jungler and mage.
Earning coins and points
HoN have dozens of bonus coins — social bonus, bloodlust, immortal, etc.
LoL pays only for win/lose and first win at day. Amount of points depends of how much time single match was.
So average match in HoN with win gives you 6-14 coins (win+ small bonuses like bloodlust/consecutive). So it's like 6 wins for cheap hero, 10 for next price-level-hero, 25, 40, 65 wins for most expensive.
Average winning match in LoL gives you 80 IP. So it's like 6 wins for cheap hero, 17 for next price-level-hero, 40, 60, 79 wins for most expensive.
Price in gold coins are higher that in LoL, but earning heroes by playing game are cheaper in HoN.
Don't know why i'm wrote this
it's nice to know this (for sure), but what exactly is your point?
If you want to criticize S2's prices or coin handling you should point out more differences - as i can see, prices/gains dont differ much.
i heard getting all the heros is about 120$ in hon. if you want to buy them all. i think its not bad compared to LOL. Still i liked when everybody get all the heros but i understand this from a buisness point of view.
This thread doesn't take into account that you need to buy runes to be in anyway competitive in ranked games in LoL.
Yeah, in LoL you have to buy skins with money.also in LoL you ahve to pay for cosmetic / skins right? in hon you can earn them

Don't you get riot points for inviting friends?
The price for all heroes in HoN is atm exactly 276,19 $ if you purchase 420 GC for 10$.
I give a **** about LoL.
This, my fellow "Legacy" brothers, is a historic rip-off, regarding what you can buy for this amount of money in the real world out there.
why don't you count the bundles they have? it's def. cheaper in HoN to buy all champs than in LoL.
You can get 40 champions with gold coins at a discount in HoN.
How much per hero in each (in $ or whatever) based on average cost for hero (either mean or median)?
I've quit until MidWars gets fixed
you forgot about casualmode and the fact that in HoN u can concede earlier.
like some one said about LoL 'the most expensive "free" game you`ll ever play'
I just feel bad that we got all the heroes for 30 where they have to pay 300...
I'd prefer it if they could just buy the heroes for 30 ya know? but not get the legacy account
Seems cheap and very casual, like none of these people will get competitive with HoN and only play at the 1000-1250 level with people just like them.
Even if you could "save" 25% it would still be 200 $ to get all of em.
This is just sick.
And because LoL does such crap, it doesnt make it legit in HoN.
They lapidate people in Saudi Arabia, that doesnt make it "ok" in the western world.
