    It's pretty obvious from the decision to allow same hero multiple times in a team they plan to handle "balance" like fighting games do.
    Probably with the bonus that most chars will be top tier when launched so people throw $$$ while it's hot.

    The leak said 21 heroes for the 40 box, not sure if confirmed.

    Confirmed not f2p, so there's that. Also from the wording, additional heroes aren't included in box price.

    $40 initial fee... then you have to buy all the heroes they add after that?

    Heroes, skins, portraits, colour variant and so on. You name it! I would love to be wrong but so far I lack hope for that.

    RIP Overwatch. I rather buy CS:GO 4 times or play Quake Arena for free.

    They can always go f2p later when the sales dry up, and give previous buyers a special tag or a skin to shut them up.

    Microtransactions in full-priced games is nothing new (see shit like Ass Creed Unity), Blizzard isn't capable of coming up with something original even when it comes to this, they're just following a trend set by other shit giant AAA developers (Ubishit, EA). Same shit happens in console AAA - see the latest Halo.

    Their batshit retarded audience is going to lap it up, just like horse armour and DLC, and pretty soon it's going to be the norm. News at 11.

    WoW is a full-priced game with subscriptions and also has had micro-transactions for years. They aren't really stepping into risky new territory here.

    That said, this game has such F2P look about it that I don't know how accepting of that people will be.

    The way they enumerate the number of heroes on the overwatch page (a big, bolded all caps "21 HEROES" as the first information they give you on the page about the game) makes me feel that they'll probably add more heroes later on that will require money just like any other MOBA. So basically, it's B2P with the addition of full on F2P-style monetization for future game updates, probably. Going to be fun when they do things like nerfing the B2P heroes or introducing an overpowered, new hero to the meta. A constant, guaranteed money stream, just like the one they get from hearthstone whenever they disrupt the meta and add new cards while never fixing/changing the old ones.
