This or StarCraft 2?

#1Redskins4Life21Posted 4/3/2013 7:33:43 AM
Hey guys, just downloaded LoL and played through the tutorial. I played the original Starcraft games for about a solid year back in the day, and I've been playing SC2 now since Heart of the Swarm came out. I love Starcraft and I'm curious as to why LoL has become more popular.

To me, building a base in SC2 is the most enjoyable aspect of the game, so obviously LoL seems like a watered down experience at first glance. What is it that makes LoL better than SC2? Or, do you like SC2 better?

Um, StarCraft 2 is an RTS, and this is a MOBA . . . ?

You might as well be comparing a Third Person Shooter and a Zelda game. MOBA's and RTS's have very little in common.

There's also the fact that LoL is well, free. And Starcraft 2 is not.

Mobas are more fun because

-They provide intensely chaotic scenes that you couldn't predict, and with micro skill can feel extremely heroic from

-This is more a team game than star craft 2, though I'm sure high end players tech cooperatively, your miniscule timing and micro is based off your other 4 allies during heated combat

Dota was originally created using WarCraft 3's map editor , was it not? One has to admit that to an outside observer or someone who is not deeply familiar with both games, they are comparable.
