    Great job! I really enjoyed it. Your discussion at the end reminded me of Leafue of Legends, which is a huge success and has a ridiculously large player base. If it wasn’t a free to play game I doubt it would be anywhere near as successful. Also valve made TF2 free to play and I believe is releasing Dota2 as a free to play game, which is already a huge hit even though it’s still in beta.

    Leaf of Legends? Is that like the leaf power from Super Mario bros 3? I have heard tails of that legend… (see what I did there?) 🙂 But yeah, free to play games have really been taking off recently, it’s quite remarkable. I never thought that microtransaction games would become has huge as they are now. But it is an amazing way for a company to cultivate a fanbase rapidly due to the no cost entry, getting them hooked, and still making money off it.
