Given that we were talking about accessibility, I had a couple more important questions: How much will DOTA 2 cost? And will it utilize a free-to-play model like chief competitors League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth? "We haven't actually decided on a payment model yet," Newell explained. "The Team Fortress 2 [free-to-play] experiment worked out better than we expected. We're way more worried about making the original community happy. It's hard enough to make a good one; we'll worry about how it gets monetized later."
Source

I think it's fairly obvious that they are going to do a free 2 play model, at the same time i think they will most likely offer a full retail type purchase where it's a one time fee of maybe 80$ and you get the rest of the content free for life. If not, im certian valve will have great bundles and things.

I play LoL and if you look on their front page they're actually lowering prices of their content. With the competetion of dota2 these Free2play games might start becoming more accessible with out spending a ton of money on them. I think everyones heard about how profitable the Free 2 play model is and there's obviously room to lower prices.

They also announced 5million dollars in tounament prises for season 2. You can tell they are really feeling the heat from valve. When dota 2 launches, blizzard will release blizzard dota, and Riot will respond with dominion and lowered prices.

I also think it's possible that blizzard dota will be monetized. Blizzard talked for a long time about monetizing starcraft 2 and the mods.

On a side note, This article says they have a 105 champions for dota 2 which is insane. How come there seemed to be less in the tournament?

heh LoL is kind of clever.. Yea you can't buy runes that give you ingame advantages, but if you buy champions. You'll have more IP to spend on runes. So in a way you can buy power by spending your real money on champions, and saving all your in-game currency for an in-game advantage. People who spend real money spend less time farming for runes because they don't have too buy champions. I'd call that an advantage.

I must second that this is wrong, you must not have played LoL yet. I recommend you give it a shot, you'll learn pretty quick that you're wrong in the best kind of way <3 LoL for it's freeness

LoL is the exception in a sea of F2P games I will admit that. Remember that the exception proves the rule. HoN just went F2P... just you wait.

Also I PAID for HoN... how nice people get to play it for free now.

now that I agree with, that LoL is the exception to the f2p norm. AOEO is the latest f2p fail that I've encountered, and honestly, LoL is the only f2p that I can stomach. That being said, it's my full time game

No one is forcing you to buy champions.. that is entirely up to you

There were only 47 playable for the tournament. The game still isn't done. I don't think all 47 were played either. With games like this, there will always be heroes that are picked a lot, and then a ton which are very rarely picked at all.
