Before getting a beta key I had never used steam; in fact i'd never realyl heard of it. Now I have steam and have purchased around $80 worth of games including on Other valve titles (Portal1/2). Thats the real business beauty of the steam/F2P model that people forget about. Valve basically made money directly because of Dota 2 even though I didnt pay for Dota 2 itself.
As you do in HoN as well...but the fact remains you can buy ALL the heroes at once much quicker and 'quantitatively' cheaper with real, ie the advantage he spoke ofYou are still restricted to whatever that weeks heroes are unless you play enough to buy all the heroes.if you're not a complete no-lifer its going to take you several months to get them all playing only a game or two a day.So yeah, mumble is still correct
"Doesn't LoL have a limited hero pool for free accounts or something (like the new HoN)?" It was a question, not a statement, so I don't see how he could be correct. Sure, you only have access to the weekly rotation if you don't spend time playing but that just means spending time playing is rewarding, unlike HoN where you have to pay to unlock every hero. Sure, you can pay in LoL to fast-track it but every account is essentially a 'free' account and if you want to buy every hero in LoL then you would realise it takes a lot. Most casual players find a few heroes they like and purchase only them.
To be able to download a F2P game on steam, you have to have bought or own a game on steam, menaing you have to have spent money that benefits valve to be able to download a f2p title.
False. I'm sure I had at least 3 f2p games on steam before I bought anything (TMNF, Spiral Knightst and RoI).
That is not true. A lot of people getting on Dota 2 are first time Steam users with no actualy money spent on Steam.
