Heroes of Newerth - DBG Genre's Future

If there's RPG which means Role Playing Games, there's also DBG which means Dota Based Games.

The DBG genre is relatively young but 2 games have already created hype.
These are League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth.
Between the two, I'm leaning towards Heroes of Newerth (HON) because of the following reasons:

a) Heroes of Newerth runs on Linux
b) Superior graphics

But because these games are still both currently in beta, any of the 2 can still dominate the DBG genre. It will all depend on the finish product and how the games are offered.

Will it be free to play? Monthly subscription?

My ideal DBG will be:

*Linux supported
*one time payment and with a dedicated online server(like Warcraft)
*LAN capabilities (Starcraft2 would suck if they will push through without LAN)

Anyways, enough of that rant. If you're an avid gamer and want to try out this DBG called Heroes of Newerth, I have beta keys to give out.
Just post something constructive at:

Don't forget to subscribe! ;)
*I'll be giving more freebies for my readers coz I love y'all.

Starcraft2 No LAN Support - Blizzard Greed?

No LAN support for Starcraft 2? Is it me just me or are the Blizzard guys going greedy in the guise of preventing piracy. Think of the gamers. Without LAN, Starcraft would be nothing.
