    Bad news: you will have to buy the game.
    Good news: you will probably get a free beta hat.

    Judging by the ingame shop and level indicator, expect to see a sim. system to league of legends and Heroes of Newerth, F2P with cosmetic purchases (TF2 Hats). I don't expect heroes will be sold (hopefully not) as dota depends heavily on counter picks.

    Dota 2 is more of a team game than TF2 and other shooters.

    The RTS genre is a lot more sensitive in terms of player numbers and player skills.

    in counter-strike, 1 person can take 3-4 players and even an entire team if he's that good.
    impossible in a balanced Dota game.

    F2P would kill this game as it killed LoL and HoN. Healthy community is essential to moba game, and healthy community is never achievable if game is free to play. Weve already seen it multiple times, how much more do you need?

    Do all these people seriously think that a game that has been free for fucking ages will die if it's going to be free?

    Original DOTA is pretty damn close to free and the community is crap (in terms of lack of friendliness). I find it hard to find any good gaming community. I do agree that if it's not F2P you'd get less children, but the real jerks are the adults anyway. :-) Plus, the better players seem to be half my age and maturity isn't tied to age necessarily.

    As long as it has a good reporting/punishment system then hopefully at least in game you can play with some people who are there without attitude.

    You get to be one of the lucky ones selected for beta. That's good enough for me...
