A Mac gamer who used to love the DotA mod for Warcraft III takes a crack at the new tower defense games in town.
DOTA2, its not even a question...
It actually is a question. DOTA is nice, but it's not what people want; Easy to play, hard to master. League is casual-friendly, unlike the hardcore moba DOTA. League is more fun IMO.
In many ways your statement is true. Personally, I find Dota 2 to be easier to get into, but then again, that was when I never touched a MOBA in my whole life. Also, League being more fun is an opinion, nothing more. Both of them are fun in their own perspectives and both contain troll. In all honesty, it really depends on what characters you like. I personally am more of a fan of the Dota 2 characters than I am of the League characters.
I'm really liking LoL but I haven't had the chance to try DOTA2 yet. I'll check it out sooner or later.
Personally check out Dota 2, but do it with friends. The thing is, right now a lot of the higher leveled players will constantly get angry at you for not doing something, or entirely doing something in general and basically, it will become frustrating after a while. I can't say LoL is far more enjoyable or anything, but I placed in over 500 hours into Dota 2 since the launch of the beta, so I can guarantee that's a great game.
Play both because their both fun if you have the time.
Ok, let me add my opinion. Yes each has their own advantages and disadvantages. One for DOTA 2 is its steep learning curve but as an avid player I find that it brings certain aspects to the table LoL can't. Sure it will be tough to learn but you cannot beat those moments where you nail all your skills in a team fight while working together with your team's actions to end up with this overwhelming feeling of satisfaction/accomplishment. It's nearly like a high that you strive to get at the next fight. Well that's what I can say about DOTA 2, LoL has its own merits as well but DOTA 2 is definitely worth the initial effort.
