Why is League of Legends so popular when the pros say Dota 2 is better?

apparently DOTA2 is more unbalanced as well. I seem to recall an event in a tournament where one team flawlessly executed all their ults, which i THINK were AOE, but ended up getting completely ***** with not even one kill.

I could be wrong, but i haven't seen all that much about DOTA, so the few tidbits i see usually stick somewhat.

No no no nooooooo. Just because a team of five executed their ults which resulted in no kill, does not mean a game is unbalanced. It just means the players are idiots.


Well when the ults are perfectly executed and completely synced with eachother, and not even getting a single kill at the end?
It just...doesn't seem right.


Ok pretty much 90% of my MOBA playing friends play LoL so I hate to mindlessly bash on it but you're really giving the LoL community a bad image by saying that outplaying the enemy team during a teamfight is "unbalanced".

1) Cost: LoL is free, DotA 2 is not. That means DotA 2 has to be whatever the price is better than LoL in order to attract customers away from LoL and to DotA 2.


dota 2 is free, for the record.

Diablo 3. 6 million players at launch. Pretty decent game, got a few 100 hours out of most people.

Path of Exile. Arguably more hardcore. Less than 1.5% of the number of players D3 had at launch play it. And it's free.


It has nothing to do with "being more hardcore"

Path of Exile is not finished yet and it is relatively unknown where Diablo is a term known to any gamer. I havent heard of PoE till like week ago and that was on LoL stream. PoE doesnt have almost any commercial background to expand it's success. They might push it in marketing way when it's finished, who knows.

All i'm saying is that a perfectly timed ambush that utilizes an entire teams ults that result in absolutely nothing in a pro tournament just seems stupid. I've never seen anything like it anywhere else. I don't care about anyone's "image", much less a community filled with people who hate me for playing anyways.

do you mean the one that was countered because of spell immunity because the stealthed team forgot about the 5 second spell immunity and got punished for it?

Lol, it's like no one reads anything at all anymore.
Quoted directly from the link you just provided.

Dota 2 is a Free to Play game, that is not yet fully released. The game is constantly being updated with new heroes and new features.

The Early Access Holiday Pack is your opportunity to get in the game now. Your purchase includes an Early Access Pass to Dota 2 in addition to the following in-game items!

That green $29.99 you see is for in-game items and early access. Simply put, it's optional and is still free.

look at all those invites, it's so hard to get into dota2 when this bot has over 20k to give out to anyone who even has the slightest clue how to use steam?
