I've played both of them quite a bit, but have a ton more time in LoL. Communities are equally bad. LoL is better balanced by far, but less all-out crazy because of it. I like runes and masteries, makes things more interesting. I think LoL currently has more heroes/champions. I personally much prefer LoL. Both very good games overall though.

Are they both equally as intense when you get almost every hero in the same spot and its all out total war and you dont know where your character is because of all of the spells and attacks flying every where?

Ohhhh yeah. I think league if a bit more intense just for the fact that it is much harder for one single hero to carry. You learn to keep track of your hero in both of them though after enough time.

 

Oh dota 2 has a better spectate mode iirc.

I prefer LoL, but just a preference, it does take up more storage space than Dota 2 though. Fairly sure LoL is about 30GB, Dota 2 is about 9GB.
Imo they are basically the same game, just different textures, sounds and attacks. 

 

Edit: Oh I just remembered that Dota 2 has like a 3rd person view thing which I do like.

So the last thing i want to do is start a heated argument about LoL vs dota, because we all know how thats going to end, but I have to disagree with you. I definitely have quite a bit of experience with both games, ~1000 games in league and just over 700 games in dota, and to me dota is much more balanced, every hero has a counter and one of the things that annoyed me most about LoL was the fact that once they brought a new champ out they are OP as balls until the following patch, which often breaks the game in other ways, though I havent played in a while so things may have changed. Though I am hesitant to claim that the dota community is 'good' i would argue that it is better in some aspects to the league community, such as leavers and feeding.

This might be making me sound like a fan boy but i think dota is more intense, you are actually punished for dieing and getting fed actually means something in dota where as in lol no team is ever really out of the game. But thats just my opinion.

If you want to know what it's like compared to League, go play League.

Another problem I have with dota is that it comes down to the players skill way less than league. It comes down to hero counters (not always true)

this is more what I meant about balanced. dota has a few really broken/stupid things. I see your point though.

Thats actually brilliant, more than likely fixed though, I know in league at one stage you could do the same thing with Heimerdinger.

I don't think it actually is fixed, I think valve just banned the use of it in tournaments. I'm not 100% sure though. And yeah that was hilarious with donger :P nothing like that ever came up again though.

Its fixed, according to patch note's i read. Creeps now sit in middle of lane and wait and don't route around into the forest to get "closer" to their destination. Also dota > lol. Lol baby's the player imo, dota punishes for mistake's. Make's the game more rewarding for good play's and punishing for careless mistakes etc and intense.

lol what? Less skill that League? Just...wow.

I only mean that matchups have less to do with skill and have more to do with blatant hero counter.

Alright fanboy. Like I said I've played them both a LOT and enjoy them both. I'm done responding to you. Not interested into getting into an argument with a little fanboy.

:P

 

Anyway, I think this video explained things quickly and to the point.

 

 

I'll have to add that the e-sports scene of Dota grew immensely after The International 3. It's not LoL scale yet, but it's getting close.

I don't think you have played/watched long enough to understand how the game is played, yes there are heroes that directly counter specific heroes but the game is a lot more than heroes themselves. Running certain strats can make hero counters irrelevant. Also even if you are against a strong lane that theoretically counters you, you and your team mates are still able to outplay them by ganking or simply having better individual skill.

Yes because i'm a "fanboy" lol, christ are you reading what you type? You ARE wrong stating that Dota is a game of counter picking hero's and Lol is for those with "skillz". There's a helluva lot more skill involved in dota's denying, ward placement, smoke ganks, skill combos and player placement and baiting that ive ever seen in a game of LoL. But no worries, you carry on your angly little way and leave the thread, i was under the impression i was discussing. Not arguing.

Coming from a huge LoL player (gold, all champs, S1, etc.), I recently switched to Dota 2 and i'm having so much more fun. Theres just a bigger range of heros/champs/whatever both skill wise and type. I like the pacing better, the more previalant use of teamwork, and the bigger skill gap. IMHO I like Dota 2 alot better then LoL and will be playing it more.

One cannot really tell which is better.

Please, don't even bother getting into an arguement.

 

Both are great games with equally bad communities.

Why ?

Super-uber-extra bright colours , free to play, easy to alt-tab, all these have a great effect appealing the really young age crowd.

 

My opinion is to play both of them, for 2 or 3 weeks, and the decision will come by itself.

If you got friends on a side, you will propably end up to that one.

 

Anyway, I've tried both, League caught my attention a lot more, but both are hard to MASTER.

 

Choose your weapon, mute/ignore those who irritate you, and enjoy your game.

 

PEACE


With RAGE n FLAME we proceed to the battle, MOBA fellas

I am a very experienced dota 2 player and from what I have seen and what I have heard, dota has a lot more variables which can influence play.

 

One of these factors, which was pointed out in a post earlier, is the ability to deny your own creeps in dota 2. People often look over this and say no big deal, and maybe so in lower skill brackets. I am 4200+ mmr on dota and controlling your lane is one of the most important things to do in the early game. If you keep the creep wave closer to your tower, it's harder for the opponent to gank you, and easier for your teammates to gank the opposing player. Also, for mid lane, the 25% chance to miss your attacks uphill also helps you last hit better than your oppoenent and you can also use fog of war to out harass or initiate on the opposing hero. On the contrary, pushing the lane lets you go take runes every two minutes without missing much xp (or lets you stack jungle creeps).

 

One simple mechanic that changes the game so much.
