Hmmm, I have been interested in HoN for a bit but didn't want to invest a lot of money for a curiosity, at 10$ i just might have to give it a shot

You guys need this game, I have spent countless hours on it and for only $10? Must have.

Isn't the community terrible? I've heard really bad things about it..

@SLUSHiNaToR: 
The community can be dickish a lot of the time, but mostly if you don't know what you're doing. Well, some people are dicks all the time for no reason, but that's not exclusive to HoN.
 
You can hang with people from Giant Bomb, though, who are really nice and can show you the ropes. The best way to get into this game is to play with people you know!

its actually $30.
 
I don't have the money even for this, but I'd consider it. I really like LoL though, so I'd probably stick with that.

I'm tempted to buy it, but I am not sure I want to pay 10 bucks to get yelled at.

I would recommend it if you like dota and if you can just dust off that verbal beating that you will get. Ever since I bought it a month ago I have spent 100 hours with 200-250 matches. I haven't even played all the hereos yet.  
 
Now I do must admit that it can be intimidating but if you have a friend who might start playing with you, do it! It's an amazing feeling when you do extremely well in a match and it's pretty obvious if you succeed. My best tip for the people who yell at you? Ignore them completely. I have noticed how well this works when comparing to my partner in crime yelling back at dudes. They just stop caring after a while and continue playing/concede/afk. I have also noticed that just mentioning in the beginning something in the lines of "im new, which hero should i pick?" has worked extremely well with several people helping out and offering help in the same lane etc. 

There are several guides, both on youtube and on HON website for basic tips/information on how to play, but you'll pick it up! 
 
Here's a couple if anyone cares;

OP you should post your referral link dude. You can get it by going onto the main HoN website, logging in, and there is a button near the top that says "Refer a Friend" if people buy the game using your link, you get 500 gold coins. I am gonna just post my referral link in case anyone is interested in both buying this (pretty awesome) game AND helping out a fellow GB member :)
