i assume something like lol
so you have a pool of a few heroes each day/week/month which chances and you can only take the others through paying
maybe some additional stuff like certain perks which can be bought
and maybe also the hon/dota model with skins to buy

as it is gameloft i assume they took the concept from on of those

Now for the real challenge: whether additional champions can be unlocked with some currency we earn from matches (in the manner of LoL, BLC, Smite, etc), or if they are real money only.

If this is a competent MOBA, I don't mind spending a few dollars on permanent access to my favourite champions. But it would be nice to also work towards future purchases with each game I play.

The norm for the LoL/BLC/HoN/Smite model (which Gameloft supposedly is inspired by) is that real money buys permanent access to new champions, xp/currency boosters (faster in-between match progression), and additional slots for talent/rune/etc setups, but nothing that actually offers direct aid in game. This freemium model is kinda the holy grail of desktop MOBAs, since they aim to establish a competitie climate and themselves as e-sports (something that requires balanced and even grounds for all players).

It works like LoL, there's a rotation between free and paid heroes, you can obtain all heroes through gameplay or with gems. There's also an extensive skill tree.

All heroes through gameplay? That's the bestest of bestest news!

Are all shop items purchaseable through the in-game currency/ies, or is there anything beyond visual customization which requires real-world money?

Solo Mode

Game looks amazing. Can anyone tell me about solo mode and bots? Can you set up your own teams in solo mode? For example can we make our own 3 v 3 team? Thanks.
