All MOBAs are exactly the same. -_- I've never seen the appeal of a game where your account can be banned if your connection drops out too many times.

I dabble in LoL.

It's actually heaps different than DOTA. Other players are heaps less cunty. It's the casual DOTA, but obviously far from a casual game.

I haven't played since the oceania server first came up. It was super unstable then, but apparently it's better now.

What ever happened to Blizzard DOTA? I played it at BlizzCon but haven't heard anything about it since then lol.

Will probably be playable at Gamescom, if that's their big announcement.

They look similar but LOL and dota play very differently, completely different feel, they just aren't exactly the same really. I suppose the goal is, but you can that the goal of any sport is to win so, it's similar to any sport in that case.

Think of like, mario compared to sonic, they're both similar, but at the same time very different.

& you cant play the game if you leave, it simply ruins the game for everyone. Think of playing a game of football, and two of your players just leave. Totally imbalances the game. I see your point though.

well anyway, if anyone here plays lol and fels like playing you can add me, my user is 'pignoah'. I play any lane, i can do wharrever. but if you give me zac jungle, we're fucking winning. I promise you that(kinda).

It's just a problem with the genre. One person, even if they lose their connection unintentionally, can ruin a round for everyone and that's annoying. An inexperienced player will just feed the other team points as well so if one person on your team sucks, it's almost impossible for the rest of the team to pick up the slack. It's only fun when everyone is evenly matched otherwise you can predict the outcome of the round within minutes.

My friends played LoL like crazy for a while. Hell I even know a guy who worked for Riot. But what's hilarious is almost every time they'd play, they'd just be pissed off the entire time. Yet they just keep playing it lol. It seems like one of those games that gets you hooked by the competitive nature and the desire to unlock shit rather than actually being fun to play. I'd rather play something where I'm rewarded for my own skill rather than the skill of the team that I'm randomly grouped with.


I haven't played DOTA II yet (just seen videos) so you're right it probably plays differently even though it looked the same lol. Blizzard DOTA on the other hand I couldn't tell the difference at all between it and LoL.

I see what you are saying, but I'd argue that every sport is like that. It's better to play with five friends and try and get everyone to a similar skill level. But yeah bad players can hurt a game. They have addressed this in lol to a certain extent with how much gold you get from good players, people who aren't doing too well don't give out as much gold.

I just love the teamwork aspect, when it goes well it feels great.
