How about mentioning it's not quite open to everyone yet?

@Lenn

Just go to the site, click 'Login' at the top, then 'New User - Sign up' and bingo. Make sure you choose the 'Download all the files' option before you play though, it's a hassle waiting for everything to dl when you click it in-game.

@pcgneurotic I did register last week when the game was still in beta. I actually played for a few days, but then access to the website was blocked again; I kept getting the "coming soon" page, no matter what I tried. Even taking a shortcut to the heroup.com/playnow page didn't help. Clicking on the big play now button just sent me right back to the "coming soon" message. I sent them an e-mail asking about it, and they replied it's working as intended.

Ouch, that doesn't sound good. Good luck with that. :)

@Lenn Sounds like an IP block. Use an IP Tunneler.

I'm trying it out, but it looks like the Silver Coin content is going to run out pretty fast, there's so little of it. Successful F2P games give free players a reason to stick around, because the longer you play, the greater the chances you'll pay.

Do you get to fight the Muppet Babies at some point?

LOL; just kidding. Not a big fan of the art style myself is all.

There's not much free to play content at all. I thought it was cute for a mission or two.
