People that say the dota community is worse than the lol community must not have played much of both games. I've played around 300 dota 2 games which I guess puts me at the same experience as a level 30 in lol and I must say I have probably gotten more rage in a bad week of solo queue than in my entire dota career.

Riot really has no excuse for their silence on the issue of Aus servers now. If Valve thinks Aus servers are justified for a beta with a peak of 200,000 online players worldwide, there is no reason there shouldn't be LoL servers for the self-proclaimed biggest game of 2012.

The Aussies I've played with so far have been a pretty chill bunch too.

And at least people in Dota 2 have at least one valid reason to be raging. Valve cocked up the matchmaking, so it puts you with random people. think of it like getting stuck in 1200 elo and never getting out, and ranked starts at level 1.....There isn't a person in the world that can't get pissed at this sometimes.

PAX is coming to Australia this new, that means that the gaming community is large here in Australia, and Riot Games should not neglect us.

You'll NEVER get away from trolls and ragemonsters in an online environment -- especially in a competitive gaming environment! But I think LoL has almost made it WORSE by catering to the people who want to "control" this kind of thing. A community of whiners and tattletales has been created in LoL.

Or is there some other issue with the DotA2 community?
I fully agree, the community here is going on a downward spiral to destruction with this tribunal thing, people get suspended and even banned for saying ''easy'', lol seriously?, lol wasn't like this, people didn't whine this much for the most ridiculous things, worse than that, the new players think they can school veterans and act even worse than the ''ragers''.

Bump, Riot needs to know that there are aussies that have serious lag problems, and makes playing more difficult, esp for skill shot champs

Wish LoL had Valve's money.
Riot does have alot of money just think how much they spent on the LoL championships
