    Not sure where to put this. Was going to put it in USN, but a lot of people stopped caring about HoN so I assumed this wasn't really newsworthy.

    Well, a week ago S2 Games made all characters free for everyone in an attempt to bring in more players, moving away from the free-to-play model that League of Legends is still successfully using. This is similar to how Dota 2's free-to-play model will be, with buyable in-game announcers, skins, etc. Didn't see this posted anywhere, so...yeah. This actually might get me to play more HoN.
