because ive overcome prejudice like a zen monk and my mind is wide open

i mean i'm not trying to figure out which one is better

infractions have been bugged for years (they simply don't expire)

i'll fix yours and if anyone else wants their expired infractions removed, make a thread on 'site feedback' forum (its the bottom most section)
Thanks Thaya. Now you can gimme one more.

i actually agree about the 'clone' part because imho they copypasted many game elements that don't really fit their model too well

item recipes and the shop in general has ALWAYS felt off for me in league, since builds are so streamlined (by design) and there's just a few pathing and/or utility choices here and there. it just feels like bloat/tedium, it could've been designed entirely differently and better

its not nearly as "beautiful" as the dota shop/recipes/builds/itemization. it feels like 'the game' in dota, the whole point of it.

you can't deny that league is faster paced than dota though. no turn rates, faster movement (generally), a lot more mobility skills, most heroes qwe are low cds, cdr is a thing, etc. dota hero designs are a lot more varied, there are lots of high impact high cd qwe's which reward decision making rather than raw practice/"feel". of course there are exceptions as well, with quite a few heroes that do focus on mechanics, but league is literally following a template in its champ designs so its more or less true for all of them

you know i've played both games A LOT right, and to me league was always about like... picking up and learning champs, their "flow" so to say, which they ALL have. the way their combos and cds feel like and shit. it's the "ah-ha, i get this now" moment that most of the satisfaction came from. however your role in the game overall was strictly defined pre-match (and most champs fill in only 1 role anyway). you do the exact same shit, its the specifics/details that are different.

now when i picked up new heroes in dota it was more about, like, figuring out that "what am i trying to achieve/what is my role in the game overall/how do we win?" thing. its like, strategy is the first thing you think about in dota, whereas in lol the strategy itself is set in stone by the game (and most of the fun comes from the combat / smaller scale tactics/plays). there are heroes without ANY gameplay depth as well, like, there's not much of a 'flow' in ogre magi you know. some heroes are just about being in the right places in the right time, that's the challenge.

also people STILL comes up with new metas in dota (like entirely different ways to win, e.g. split pushing with illusions to victory from a year or two ago for example), that alone says so much lol

do u c wat i mean?
Valid points, but overall dota is still better because dota. Also how can you be Russian and play LoL.

Also why do I have infractions when I havent posted in 1.5 year lol

"wow this game has no last hits, no items and no viewers

fucking terrible"

like

every metric you use is stupid and beyond the context of the game itself

it doesn't have dota elements because (believe it or not) its not dota

if you play overwatch like its cs you're probably not going to have a great time either

shit, even if you play dota like its lol you're not going to have a great time. dota is decision making/overall strategy focused, lol is much more about combat mechanics/performance. there's a reason both of the games are popular: they are different. if they were the same then one would end up being flat better than the other and monopolize. but instead they each have their own audience and fan base, and so does hots (it's just much smaller)

maybe if your view on it wasn't "yeah so this is dota without items and lasthits" your experience would've been different. most of my response was to "yeah so i tried to play hots like its dota and my decisions felt meaningless" i mean fucking obviously that's exactly whats gonna happen? i wasn't even trying to say that hots is good or whatever, bringing up twitch viewership as a response to what i said is pure idiotism im sorry.

like, even if you proved that the game is indeed bad, that doesn't make the "it has no depth" statement true (which is what im arguing against). path of exile has barely any viewers either and a tiny playerbase, but that game has 10x the depth of everything else mentioned in this thread. i'm not trying to prove the game is good, it just triggers me when someone says "this has no depth" when you're fucking clueless, don't play it and just simply can't know.

there's a big difference between saying "hots is bad / i dont like hots" and saying "it has no depth / its simple/casual / decisions are meaningless / etc". if you don't know shit, just shut the fuck up. you didn't even play the game enough to 'get' what it's about and it's blatantly obvious based on what you're saying. having an opinion is fine, talking about the depth and mechanics of a game you don't play is not

also hots has a stable 1mil audience just on the reddit and it's stable at these values. a niche game isn't a bad thing. eve online has had ~300k players for like 10 years and what? it's still a great game (with insane depth as well btw). i play quake which has like 10 viewers on a normal day and it's my favorite game of all games. how the fuck does viewer count make your personal experience in a game better or worse? (given there's enough people to actually play with/against, which there absolutely, definitely is)
You made me to log in after a year and a half just because I saw this.

No. LoL is a game made by angry neckbeards for angry neckbeards. Dota is superior in mechanics and everything. LoL is a cheap clone for people that can't play DotA (most of the world). You can't deny this (see what I did there). Gaben/Icefrog are the real ubermensch.

Also every blizzard game sucks dick and they are the devil and they should burn

Blizzard is an excellent company - their stock keep rising. Buy stocks instead of gamecards, trust.
