Dota 2 is a bit more balanced than LoL
I don't play either as I suck and have little interest in dedicating the hundreds of hours to become just mediocre :) But as a spectator I find the production values of Riot / LoL far better than DoTA2 - so although I probably prefer DoTA2 in terms of map / mechanics / game play - LoL is much better and easier to watch and much closer to a proper 'sports' broadcast.
