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

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"


Aren't a bunch of Champs lore basically that?

DotA actually takes skill and timing to play. You can't deny that playing a mastered Meepo/Invoker is one of the most challenging and rewarding things to do.

Sure, you want a real challenge go play Ninja Gaiden, Battletoads or Dark Souls.


I am happy that you mentioned Ninja Gaiden and Battletoads. I need to play them again!

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.


I see 2 guys that have obviously never played any other video game in their lives and can't make very rational comparison's based on livestreams, game footage, and most importantly personal experience from many OTHER games.

It's great League of Legend's popped your video game virginity... it is really sweet... but yea.

At first I thought the bow on the front of his outfit was made of hair.


I wouldn't look too carefully at that character if I were you. Take it at face value and walk away.

I've been on Gamefaqs for a while. I just harbor a tiny hope that eventually People will learn to have a civil discussion, sadly it does not seem like this will happen any time in the near future.

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.


War3 had the ability to attack your own units/denying and turn speeds on most units. Its a product of the game the mod was built on. Had Dota not had either of those things, it'd STILL be just as popular and people would still rave about how much better Dota is than LoL. It's just preference.
