LoL is easier than DoTA2 from most people's experiences.

Crappy community does not make a genre inherently crappy.

If you're totally new to the genre, I disagree; LoL is filled with smurfs at lower levels of play, and those players all have terrible personalities.

just compare these two and pick which looks more fun.


lol is just much more... simple with lesser involved mechanics and straightforward gameplay while dota allows for much more flexibility and imaginative gameplay.

oh and as far as f2p models go, dota 2 >>>>>>> lol
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Dota 2 has a better business model, engine and game client.

Communities are both crap

Gameplay is subjective.

IMO Dota: wider variety in heroes and spells, deeper game, and the above better business model.

EDIT: oh and the devs aren't complete idiots

It makes no sense to say that LoL is easier than Dota 2. Both are PvP games.

However LoL is pay2win so it's not really free. In fact it costs a lot. Much more than you'd expect a game like that to cost, even if you only unlock the content that tangibly affects your chances of winning (no skins, summoner icons etc).

I too would avoid the genre unless you think you have more free time than other people. These games can be extremely time consuming - in order to beat the people who basically play all the time (some for a living) you likely need to play a lot as well unless you are exceptionally talented.
