    Both games are not bad, but I still like Dota more, since I started playing it when it was a map for Warcraft 3

    Lol is too simple and transient for me, in Dota you need to make an effort and constantly improve your skill and learn something new, which causes a lot of enthusiasm to win

    HoN had a massive curve and was super tough, even for a Dota1 guy(quick paced, competitive and definitely not casual. Just a handful of creeps would make you win/lose the lane). But games like this pushes your limits.

    LoL just came out back then. I only played 1 game - this is how it ended:
    I wanted to deny my creep - just to realize it's not possible(it was super wierd for me). Because in Dota series and in HoN - that's a major gameplay thing - PLUS the moba gameplay in common.

    My instant impression was this game is build for casuals. I ended up completely annihilating people and solving the mechanics in just one game due to my background. I also thought that the gameplay is slower, so the macro control was no big deal. It was like watching a game in 0.5X speed.

    I decided to delete LoL after that. It was clear for me, that they were stealing casuals both from Dota and HoN. I kinda hated them for it(yes - I know there are professionals aswell playing LoL - but I tend to have hard time getting impressed, as the game is easier per default).

    Dota2 came out and people from HoN got spread out to LoL/Dota2. I myself found Dota2 to be a balance of HoN/LoL(you get the full spectrum here).

    My own conclussion:
    Dota2 WILL make you a better player, even if you would play LoL at some point. It's highly addictive and you will never feel, that you are good enough, no matter the level you play.

    Dota2 is also more balanced, due to high level tournaments and much less heroes to pick from(can't personally compare to LoL - but that's what the community is vocal about).

    The Dota2 community is nice and toxic in the same time. It all varies from game to game - ironically, you will most likely end up toxic as well, when you reach a specific level due to the competitive culture and the performance requirements. I don't see this as a negativ thing - just equally - the game is very rewarding.

    I'd say go for Dota2 and play it the original way.

    Dota 2 over LoL.

    Mostly because LoL was meant to be a simplified version of Dota 2 but as it gets up there in age, they want to make it more complex, which sort of defeats the point of the purpose of the game in the first place and why it was so easy to get into. As it was basically the equivalent of WoW and older mmos in that it streamlined the genre. As I personally just wanted to enjoy a more simplified version of Dota from time to time to unwind.

    Also league while popular now especially in places like China, Tencent and Riot now have to deal with the fact that youths under the age of 18 have even less free time to play their game (were talking about 3-6 games on Friday/Saturday/Sunday from 8pm to 9pm).

    Also just in general the coding and engine are showing their age. Like Vandiril comes out with a youtube video practically everyday showcasing a different bug or glitch every day on their channel. Or the reason Riot can't sell map packs or hud skins or announcers is because their file encryption system is so outdated.

    I thought game vs game threads were not allowed.

    Bumping threads just to bump them and not adding anything of value is also not allowed.

    It was the top thread in the subforum, I didn't bump it up. Not everyone obsessively refreshes the front page of MMO-C like you.
