i hope they don't shut the company down. I currently play mobile legends and i love it. Gives me a taste of lol on mobile

Try Vainglory.

I have no doubt this game will shut down. It's a straight copy of LoL right down to the champions.

Here you can see a copy of Ashe, Annie, Garen, Nero (DMC), Tyrande (WoW), and Roadhog (Overwatch). It's hilarious they think they have a chance at fighting this.

If thats true the DOTA can SUE riot for Similar map dis,chars and so on lol RIOT JUST BEING A BULLY

Uh the map, characters, abilities are all different between LoL and DOTA.

These knockoffs have copy characters right down to the looks and abilities. Even similar names.

@neocores8055, how can DOTA sue Riot when DOTA had no copyright? DOTA was a mod made in a Blizzard game, the creators have no legal ground to sue anyone even if there is a direct rip off. Whereas the creators of Mobile Legends is not even trying to hide the fact they are ripping everything off and the map even looks to be copy and paste from LoL.
