Well they actually said at first that overwatch will be for free.
So i was kinda disappointed when they suddenly announced this price and 60 bucks seems a bit too much for me when i just planned on playing this game only a few hours per week on a casual level.

Yeah same here. I would prefer if this game was F2P tbh.
I really love what they did with Heroes of the Storm. A bit sad they don't do the same for OW.

What's better, an expensive game where you get everything or a "free" game you need to buy half the store in in order to have a part of the fun it was supposed to deliver? tongue.gif

*cough* League of Legends *cough*

I love that game, but I'll be damned if they didn't get about $1k out of me by now. The leveling process from 1-30 is excruciatingly long.

Actually many of those popular f2p games, such as hots, lol, dota2 and heartstone, dont require u to investigate any money.
You can spend momey on skins and stuff but they dont give u an advantage.

Ive been playing lol for a very long time now and i never had any disadvantage by not bying stuff.

Well i cant really say too much about that since i started playing lol when it came out, so i had lots of time to get all the stuff for free, but if u think it takes long in lol you should never play hots^^

I've played a couple quick games of HotS, but wasn't impressed with it. Felt like a dumb-ed down version of League/Dota (yes, I understand theres depth, I'm just saying).

I didn't play one second of LoL (or any MOBA apart from CGF/Predatore's Renegade Wars map), but I find the fact you mentioned getting suckered convinced to pay that much money and a long leveling process interesting. Do they give you instant levelups for cash? If so, that's pay-to-win as hell.

That is what i like about heroes of the storm. You have tons of heroes that are not available right away, but the rotation of free heroes + quick early grinding makes the game still very large. There are tons of heroes you can choose from without spending a dime. The fact that it is quite easy to learn (no items!) but hard to master, makes it a great game at casual and pro level.

Why would that be pay-to-win?
You just level up faster and u can buy new champs faster. Thats all. You dont gain any advantage since all champions are equally balanced.
I dont even get why some1 would pay money since its kinda boring to get all champs so fast, then there is nothing left to gain for you.
And i dont think that lol has a long leveling process since the max level is only 30 and compared to games like hots u level really fast.

Exactly. Hots is the best MOBA for beginners imo and also its from blizzard, so you can expect good patching/balancing and good service.

F2P only works if there's a good ranked matchmaking system otherwise it turns into garbage like TF2.
