I like the simplicity of LoL. Maybe I'm too used to it, but I feel like since I've been playing LoL for so long, I don't care to play Dota. I tried it a few times, and It's felt like a chore each time. Plus, I have way more fun playing LoL.
I'd arrest you if I had handcuffs.

I think it's a refreshing experience.
It's like when I want to play LoL with more customization and details. Also the heroes are really fun.

I has free TP scroll in League whereas I have to get a TP to go back to base.

There's no teemo in DotA, and Meepo>Teemo


Everyone has mana in DotA. Great.

I don't like how DOTA 2 looks. The UI looks ugly and there is a lack of textures. The gameplay is honestly similar no matter what people say, so graphics will the main topic.

it sounds like a lot of you guys think the issue with dota is overpowered heroes/items, or that the game is generally too complicated. don't you think both of these problems would get remedied by learning the game more? or is it just not good enough to warrant that effort?

and my actual question was your impression of players like us :P

It is fun, but it is also archaic and has plenty of issues from balance to a horrible UI and shop.

And the "complicated" argument isn't really about skill. LoL became popular because it streamlined the genre and made the game more equal and competitive. There are less things to worry about, so the game is about faster action in general. Dota has more mechanics that only serve to slow down the game and keep you feeling like you are playing a decade old game rather than something new and exciting.

I always use the comparison between Starcraft and Rise of Nations. Starcraft is popular precisely because it is less complicated, more balanced, and has faster action in general. The same goes for LoL and Dota 2. And even though it came out more recently, Dota 2 is a facelift on an old game, and it really shows that the design is something from years ago.

There are some interesting champs and the play can be rewarding in its own way, so it is worth playing if you enjoy the genre, but LoL is much more fitting for competitive play.
