Why is the attack speed capped at 2.5?

Because it's the average maturity (in years of age) level of 75% of the community

getting to 2.5 attack speed is already hard without a steroid


Attack speed in DotA is counted differently, the max attack speed is 500

So pantheon doesn't man drop a tower and 100 percent it by tanking it with his passive.

He can already do this.

It's not only about balance. Certain attack animations become really messed up past 2.5 AS.

But that would be truly outrageous and LoL needs more truly outrageous things.

Ever see a Nautilus with 2.5 (or hell, anything beyond 1.5) attack speed?

Swings that massive 10 ton anchor like it's a twig.

In DotA the max Attack Speed is 2.63 to 5.0, depending the hero...that said, the vast vast majority are capped at 2.94 AS...only one hero can hit 5.0 AS (Alchemist).

In DotA, additional AS is capped, not the total AS (ie: as an example, you could stack as many phantom dancers as you want, but you could only have 300% AS).

Random fact: LoL took the armor and attack-speed formula's from DotA----they just flipped things around to make it seem different, on the surface.
