Dota 2 or League of Legends

Hey guys, i've been having this issue with these games as i am not sure which is more fun, flexible, and the difference between them.

i don't know if i will ever play these games because my interest in them is not that much but i would like to try them and i'm just curious.

please can anyone tell me what you see is best and suggest what i should go for?

 

thanks in advance.

Dota 2 and LoL are basicly

Dota 2 and LoL are basicly the same games. It is the one playing it which makes a world of difference. Me for example am relatively good at LoL and enjoy the way that game is played. On the other hand whilst Dota 2 is actually the same, i dont enjoy it at all. The game feel in dota is for me too strange. 

 

I can advise you to start one of the two and see if it fits. Then go to the other and see what that does. Then if that also doesnot fit you, go back to the first, and that might then see less bad then originally thought.

 

LoL is seen by the general public as #420MLGsmokeitblazeit360noscopeheadshotswagiliciousyolo. Although i agree that 65 % of the playerbase is that way, those are all in the lower ranks. Once you get to about lvl 20 (out of 30) those issues will be minimal as by then everyone knows how to play the game.

 

Dota2: i thought Murhakulli played this so he can explain more there.

LoL: Tokyo, Aqualad, Reaper, 1/2 Schwarzflug and myself play this alot. Tokyo Aqua Reaper and me play with a non-TTT group aswell including my lil bro which we have been accustomed to. We'd be happy to take you in.

Hi,

Hi,

ive been playing League of Legends for almost 3 years now. The reason why i like it so much is the varity. No game is like the other, it's a new adventure everytime you click that play button Smile .

Also in LoL you dont have ANY advantage over someone who used thousands of dollars on the game compared to someone who used none, which is also great. Spending really money on the game only unlocks skins for champions which makes your champion look different ingame.

Also LoL is 99% of the time the most game watch on twitch, averaging around 100k at a time. Hell, even up to 300k sometimes when the LCS is on. http://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/League%20of%20Legends

Also the the main LoL map (Summoners Rift) is recieving a complete overhaul soon which will make the game look alot better. 

 

 

As of Dota2, i havent really played it much but i dont like it at all because the gameplay seems so sloppy, but i think its just because im not used to it. 

 

In the end i suggest you to play LoL, its the most played online game in the world, its still growing, easy to learn, regulary balance changes and you can learn from the people in the clan who play it Tongue


Oh boy... i forgpt to mentioj

Oh boy... i forgpt to mentioj artefakt!!!!! IM SORRRYYYY! Its just thar i dont play wih you that often...

i have been playing Dota 2

i have been playing Dota 2 today and it's good so far. i'll have to get used to the controls a little, i liked the game and the genre since i haven't playd something like this before i think.

sometime soon i'll try League of Legends and compare the two.

 

my goal in this was to get to know the MOBA genre more since i couldn't understand the concept of this Genre like any other genres out there. i mean i can understand the idea and how it's played but i never experienced it. so by experiencing i believe i can later on discuss things with people interested in this Genre and give my point of view on them.

Bottom line is, i want MOBA in my Video Game Dictionary.

 

DOTA 2 is a good game so far. even though there was a guy in game which criticised the game by saying "this game is sh*t going back to LOL" ROFL but it didn't stop me from enjoying the game. i get the feeling of Dota 2 a little, as previously stated, i'll try LOL soon to know how to compare things.

oh and thanks for the advice and information guys, very much appreciated.

Kiwi and dynamic, if you sont have something usefull to post.... just dont post. He already stated that he wants to try out both so saying he should do neither means that you have conpetely neglected this discussions goal and only did this to troll....

BB, to me, Dota 2 is a little more tryhardy, a little more complicated and a bit of a 'oh, you've made a game so we'll make one to contest yours'.

Go with LoL.

Ok time for the results.....

Ok time for the results.....

I have played both League of Legends and Dota 2 to see which is more entertaining and preferrable to play. This is very difficult for me after playing both games. So i noted down the goods and the bads of both games.

Dota 2:

Good:

  • couriour can be purchased to bring you items purchased from the shop..
  • you can automatically follow your minions or other Heroes/Champions without the need to right click everytime to give commands to your champion to move. You can also kill your own minion so your opponent won't get any exp or money.
  • The game gets more interesting once you reach a certain level in game like lvl 8+.
  •  
  • Awesome set of Items.
  • My Favourite Hero/Champion is Vingeful Spirit (used all the time if not chosen by others)

Bad:  

  • Hud is too huge! i don't think i can decrease the size of the hud. (not enough space to view what's happening under the hud since it's huge)
  • map is a little bigger or say wider than LOL which makes it feel as if your speed movement is a little slow than LOL by 0.1 second.

 

League of Legends:

Good:

  • you can teleport back to base anytime with no cooldown.
  • map is a bit small compared to Dota 2 map which makes it feel as if your speed movement is a little faster by 0.1 second.
  • there are spells/side skills.
  • Hud is great, you can see well whats going on in the hud are and it's not that huge compare to Dota 2.
  • Awesome set of Items.
  • Bushes are very useful.
  • my favourite Champions/Heroes so far are Veigar and Lux.

Bad:

  • The game is so intense that my brain starts boiling at a certain point.
  • you can't follow a champion/hero or minion automatically by clicking on them.

 

Neutral:

  • i don't mind both games loading screen time. even though LOL takes a little too long to load.
  • Frikin Bushes in LOL =.= i hate it when your oppenent always camps there but it really is useful for tactical skills so i don't mind that either.

 

I enjoy both games, i find it hard to focus on one game. LOL is intense from my experience and needs teamwork when it gets tough. Dota 2 as well but i don't feel tense as much as LOL. oh and last thing in Dota 2 all Heroes are free to choose. but LOL you have to buy them. LOL has its advantage to let you try other champions.

 

Results!........................................................................................

Both Games are great!! i can't pick one DX QQ but now that i have experience in the game i can play both games so if anyone want me to play with them LOL or Dota 2 i'm available Big GrinROFL

 

Edit: i might have things to learn like what is ks? or why is there rules for top, mid, and bot for certain champions/heros since we are going to make teamwork? and many more. Smile

well simply put KS is slang

well simply put KS is slang for Kill Steal and used by the very lowest of noobs in the world of MOBAs. It is being thrown at people by little kids who prefer to kill someone than win the game. Once you go up in rank and play with friends you will see this a lot less as they want to win rather than kill.

For top mid bot: this all has to do with the team setup people have created over time. Generaly the 'big 5' consist out of:"
Top: Bruiser (a tough melee champion which has a high durability and massive damage/survivability)
Mid: a AP focused champion like lux or veigar, the focus on the high damage from their skills and thus have a big range of various items to choose from to define their playstyle.
Bot: Bot has two players. The ADC Attack Damage Carry, and the Support. The ADC is the champ focussed on basic attack damage. They will build their champ to be super quick with shooting and very high crit rate/chance and damage with basic attacks. The reason for this is to have a vulnerable champ which gets protected by the team, but which deal massive. MASSIVE, damage to the other team. First thing to take out on a enemy team is this player as he will deal the most damage in team fights.
The support is the helping hand of the ADC and is in early game (5 - 20 mins) designated as the protector of the ADC and has to help the adc survive. As the ADC is so vulnerable the Support usually has skill to help others with shields, speed buffs, heals etc. They often are crucial to the team.
Last but not least and only for the higher ranked as no one understands in the lower levels: the jungler. the jungler gets his XP from the jungle monsters and thus doesnot have to share his xp with other people in the lanes.when he has time or a lane is getting pushed the jungler comes in to bash the enemy laners in the back and thus 'double teams' the enemy. He basicly decides the flow of the game. If a lane is going bad he could (camp) come back to this lane again and again to help out his teammates on that lane. However, he does not take the kills, he lowers the enemies champs health for the laner to kill him, The killer gets a lot of xp and cash and the assist gets less. If you want your laner to survive on his own you will have to let him get the kill. Only if the enemy is on the brink of getting away you kill him.

I suggest you just get on TS with Arte/Waterdude/Reaper/Me and well have a game with bots to help you out on all the terms and playstyles to then find your own Wink
