i heard hon has a "dickish" community. I've never played it. I did play a hell of dota and im currently playing leagues of legends. Playing a lot of leagues actually. Probably a good 3-4 hrs a day.
Yeah I'm playing a ton of LoL almost daily too. I'm not an extreme loyalist (HoN vs LoL, Sony vs Xbox, etc etc) so I'm willing to try this game out too. I would have bought it back at $10 but it was right after a major flux of bills. I'll probably at least try this for the free 11 days. I actually found a good youtube video where the person compared HoN vs LoL (even though he was slightly HoN biased). Even he admits though that the community is brutal at all levels of play and you'd better have iron skin.
DOTA also had a pretty jerk community, but surprisingly most(ish) of LoL has been overall pretty good. At least once I got past level 10
Good post, OP, and total value for the coins+account, but I'm not big into micro-transactions and so I'll probably just hold for another $10 sale.
