DoTA uses practical titles.

LoL operates on ROOL OF COOL and hammy sandwiches.

They're too long to even think about, let alone refer them as champions. I'd rather refer them as Lux, Ezreal, and Draven.

They'd probably be called by their abbreviations in-game, I mean no one ever says Anti-Mage anymore and just call him "am" or "AM".

That's dumb. Their names give them more personality. Besides, Lux will become LoL. lol.

Because LoL champs have personalities and thus can easily be identified by their names. Everyone in DotA is like Karma.

Well, it fits in with the eighteen other fanboy posts he's made.

It's a sad day when Darkest has deteriorated to the point where he's become a fast amphibian.
