Accessibility, League is more easily accessed than Dota2.
Plus word of mouth. LoL has been out longer, has been played by more people, etc.....

This is just my own theory but I don't think being on Steam helps Dota2. Don't get me wrong Steam's great for making games popular that otherwise wouldn't have been. But I think if you can make your game popular without Steam, that's a bonus.
LoL could do this, "Hey DotA fans, I'm the new game made specifically to do MOBAs!" This was bound to get them noticed.
Dota2 had to get noticed since there not the first DotA clone to come around.

Just my opinion. Don't expect many to agree though :P

I still find it saw how there are about 11 pages in the DoTa2 board that have to do with LoL possibly with the intent to bash DoTa2, yet there are around 22 pages in the LoL board that have to do with DoTa possibly with the intent to bash LoL.

The quantity of DoTa players looking to diminish LoL is impressive...and not on the good side.
You are trying to understand madness with logic. This is not unlike searching for darkness with a torch.

And now, I'm thinking again, isn't there
something we can do about something we can't do anything about?

People still don't understand that LoL and Dota are vastly different games, with only the same basis.

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.

Its not harder or better, all of those statements are false.

Lol is better advertised.
