Yes is more difficult, yes is a good game.
But....


i prefer league is more enjoyable and i find the champions with more charisma here.

20 mins of dota hero dialogue per person not enough?

Not harder just clunkier. They carbon copyd Dota but improved the graphics, so you still have annoying animations to deal with. In Dota you play against the game, in LoL you play against players.

define "hard"

well yes the game is harder to pick up with so many things to learn

but it's more forgiving than league because you don't instantly blow up once you're farmed since most abilities' damage do not scale into the game.

you also need to live with the fact that dota has more ccs but more escape, bkb/magic immunity and lifesteal is much more noticeable because most mages' auto attacks tickles approaching mid-late game.

also, in dota, you actually defend the damn turrets
in league, turrets are defending you.

Not for me , I like more the designs here.


Still those dialogues between anti mage and zeus are hilarious.

10 lines of dialogue is seriously more charisma than over 100 lines of dialogue for you?

in dota you are given whatever tools you want and allowed to do anything you want to kill the enemy ancient

in league, Riot holds your hand and tells you how to play the game because they believe their community too stupid to make their own desicions
