I don't like F2P games, they're never really free unless you don't mind being stuck with crappy weapons etc.

First of all, let's get this straight - you are in no way obligated to play the game. If you don't like the concept of a free game with additional paid content, simply don't download it. Easy as that. So, no difference in that regard to a game you pay upfront to play in its entirety. Second, if you do decide to download and try the game, you can uninstall it at any time with the only thing of value you've lost being your time. Doesn't seem too terrible to me. Would you rather be able to try out a game for free or pay fifty bucks upfront only to find out it wasn't worth it? So score 1 for the F2P game there. Third, if you actually enjoy the game enough to continue playing, I think paying for extra content is reasonable. Again, you pay 50 bucks up front or 50 bucks over time for only the content that you truly want. Score another one for the F2P game.

As far as I can see, the only disadvantage is to the hardcore player who probably doesn't want to deal with the people just trying out the game. Developer support (updates, patches etc) might be lacking due to less revenue from a free game, but if it's good enough to get people to buy extra content this wouldn't be a problem. So if it's good, you'll get support - if it's bad, why would you care about updates anyways?

Overall, looks like a win-win situation. Possible great game from one of the best PC developers? Check. Little to no initial investment for me, the player? Check. Honestly I have no idea how you could get angry over this.
i don't see how anyone could be upset over video games at all. i mean, did you know that there are starving children out there who would think about how they are going to get food before if DX11 is coming to crysis 2?

I've actually played quite a few f2p games that don't give significant, if any advantage to paying customers...

League of Legends, BLC, Travian, Tribal Wars, Urban Rivals are few i can name off the top of my head.

i dont know whats more ignorant. Thinking that Icefrog created Dota, or the fact that you think its ok for someone to simply take the work they have done, even though it isnt their project, merely something they were given permission to work on, and steal it.

guinsoo and pendragon both have more claim to the game than icefrog. Yet they both left the game to the community and created their own game instead of stealing it. Guinsoo and pendragon didnt even create DOTA either. Icefrog started working long after guinsoo turned his version into the most popular version.

If I recall correctly the CURRENT creator of DoTA works at Valve now.
