The reason LoL is the most popular MOBA is because of its Champions.

Sure I said some mean stuff, but it's kind of the internet so it really doesn't matter.

I get what you're saying and I completely agree with your frustration babe, but I never meant to insult as much as I did. I just argue like a douche.

I kind of agree, nothing worse than games where the characters are boring, have boring designs and backstories.

"I AM A WANDERING NINJA WHO DECIDED TO JOIN THIS TOURNAMENT"

Meh

Although this game isn't quite Guilty Gear level IMO

LoL has nothing on Meepo, Rubick, Invoker, Broodmother, Morphling, and so many other heroes from DotA.

Except real names.


lol

The fact that you care about names over actual gameplay makes me sad for the future of video games.


except that could very well be an important part of the immersion for someone playing a game


Keeper of the Light isn't a name that connects nearly as much with someone as Ezreal or Diana does


the fact that you care abouthaving more archaic and unimportant mechanics over actual accessible and gameplay that is able to reach a wide audience while still having a niche for skilled play makes me sad for the futu-

oh wait it doesn't make me sad for the future of video games because LoL is significantly more succesful than Dota 2. Never mind guys, future is in good hands.


you want every game to baby you?

whatever happened to a real challenge, striving to beat that last level on extreme difficulty or master this character? everyone wants simple games these days, nobody wants a challenge and everyone wants to feel special. HAY GUYS I GAWT ACHIEVEMENT IM BEST PLAYER!!!1

Man up and try to play a game that actually challenges your intellect, you know, a game with those silly "unimportant" and "archaic" mechanics that actually allow the game to flourish in a technical level that league cannot match. A level that allows for legitimate counterplay in a wartime scenario, with juking, lane control, and legitimate map control.

League has no counterplay, there is nothing that you can do to efficiently outplay the enemy. It's all "stack health/arpen and u win l0L0lawlawll" because of the simplicity of the game. You can't outsmart the opponent at the level that DotA allows you to and denying that shows your incredible ignorance.


wow dude. You must stomp all the pros in LoL then XD. I can agree to an extent that its harder to get decent at DoTA 2, but both games have incredibly high skill ceiling both in terms of mechanics and strategy. It is just much easier to be decent at LoL. But unless you are a pro in either scene, this post is just pathetic....

There's just tons of stupid weird stuff in Dota. One is spell immunity where you just have to memorize how it works because it seems like many abilities just go through it. Other strange things like how to get rid of tower aggro (attack your own creep, huh?), turn speed (game might be balanced around it but I don't get the point, if WC3 didn't have it Dota wouldn't have it), strange delay,

Ultimately if a game isn't pleasant to play people won't play it. If Dota had been introduced just now it would have failed for sure. I'd play Dota 2 enough to get high mmr but then I'd probably head back to League because of bad memories from WC3 days and it's just a pain in the ass to play.

I am... as unbiased as you can possibly get.

false, and you were wrong earlier


Oh it is quite true... and I am completely unbiased and completely right. You are completely wrong. Which is obviously true and it is obviously true you probably have never played any other game in your life....

HoN followed Dota more closely (you know where most moba players started from mostly)... with actual real features like observer modes and other stuff... with real tournaments... while LoL was a running joke for the first few years.

If LoL wasn't free and COMPLETELY casual..... HoN would have DESTROYED LoL and you guys would be like 'League of Legends... wtf is that game'.

Let's just say if you took League of Legends characters and put them in HoN's model (buy to play).... no one would be playing LoL right now.

And this is from a COMPLETELY unbiased player that doesn't play those other ones...

Having never played HoN and only playing Dota2 once, how do you supposedly know all this?

You're either:

A. Completely talking out of your ass.
B. Read what some guy posted once and took it at face value.
C. Lying to try and claim to be unbiased.
D. All of the above.

Why don't people keep their mads and jellies on their own boards?

You choose to like a less popular game, but at the end of the day you like it more, so why does it matter that LoL is kicking its ass? It doesn't, get over it, go back to your board and weep with your own kind.
