    Some people like me just enjoy the complexity and competitive nature of Dota so my vote goes for Dota. It's so much satisfying winning in a game like this (imagine winning a game of chess vs a game of checkers, winning chess is more fulfilling). It's also enjoying to punish enemies' mistakes (which is more evident in Dota).
    Also bush + special plant is nothing compared to dynamic trees (which has interactions with some abilities like Tree Dance, Nature's Guise, Timber Chain, Shackeshot, etc.)
    The Dota 2 tutorial sucks though and the matchmaking system is not friendly to new players but once you've pass that stage it is all good.

    the 2 games are honestly too different from 1 another to compare

    LoL players dislike dota because they dont understand the mechanics so they believe these things are OP

    dota players dislike LoL because they find it too simplified compared to dota mechanics

    the games are played very different from 1 another even tho the goals and concept is the same.

    The comparison started when Riot started claiming that "LoL is the new generation of Dota".

    I will have to put my vote on LoL
    Although I prefer HotS above both.

    Too lazy to leave a full review on anything, but this sums it up very well: Absolutely never enjoyed playing DotA. It just wasn't fun. (similar applies to LoL, although a little bit less) It is a game(mod) it is supposed to be fun & enjoyable and I've never felt that with either much. LoL has some fun-modes which are quite good and I like doing them but dota... nothing of the sort.

    I hope you understand, that this is per-person and you are ASKING FOR A PERSONAL OPINION AND EXPERIENCE in this topic. This is mine. Deal with it.

    Regards
    -Ned, out! (Don't tag me, please, don't want to come back here)

    PS: I love it how every reply is in this format:
    Game X fan wrote
    Game X worship
    Game Y sham
    Game Y worship which is actually a sham
    Game X sham, which is actually a worship

    PS2: Above applicable for any Game X vs. game Y topic ANYWHERE


    Disclaimer: I have played both DotA 2 & LoL, some other random MOBA & AoS mods & games both in standalone and mods in War3 & StarCraft & StarCraft II (Original DotA mod, HotS, etc.). I believe this is true for pretty much anybody around, no? I have not played any of those in the past 1-2 years, except HotS and trying random mods every now and then but ~meh.

    Dota 1. LoL you just button mash a hero to death, rotate your spells and boom something is dead.
    Dota 2 I just don't like the camera system and the screen layout.
    So Dota 1 ftw

    As an old Dota 1 and Dota 2 (pre-reborn) player, I voted Dota. Not sure how crappy the game is nowadays, though.

    I know both communities suck, but I'm pretty sure any community isn't worse than LoL's. Have refused to play LoL many years, I can't stand a single match, it's just not for me. Many friends play it though, they've always wanted to hire me.

    I am with you. The LoL community in my country is reeking of 10 ~-year-old kids.

    Dota 2 is hilarious to me, it kept a ton of wc3 limitations and made them gameplay features. They had the option to remove the wc3 wonkyness, but they made it a part of the game instead.

    When that is said. Who cares. Play what you like and stop being a tribalist hipster that has to makes a conflict out of everything. It is perfectly possible to love something, without having to differentiate yourself and make an identity out of disliking their "competitors".

    The main reason to that would be it would raise many complaints on how different it is on its predecessor (mainly, the professional games and experienced ones) and IceFrog chose not to break the concept of the game itself.

    6.83 started splitting. IceFrog left wc3 to focus more on the concepts that were not possible on Warcraft 3 e.g. Cooldown Reductions, Spell Source, On-Hit effects, to name a few.

    Meh, I have 1500+ (estimate) hours on DotA 1, 1000+ hours on DotA 2, 700+ hours on LoL, I still play both occasionally.

    Both are fun in their own ways, I can't really describe it clearly.
    DotA is more about the absurdity of everything and prioritizing the ones that work best. I'm only Archon after playing so long, though, so who am I to say?
    League for me is mastering one focus point of the game (I'm an Azir OTP) and using it effectively. I hover around Platinum II-I.

    The new player experience of League is absolute garbage, though. I hear DotA has enforced the easy heroes only for new players too, which is also bullshit.

    That was pre-December. It was 12+ heroes only playable for new players. Now they changed it to disabling Level 3 difficulty heroes (Invoker, Meepo, etc.)

    I don't know how active this thread is, but the whole Dota Vs. Lol discussion isn't as passionate as it used to be.
