1. Engine is better than the rest.
2. Fast gameplay which results in shorter games
3. You don't have to buy the game nor the heroes
4. Supports Mac/Linux
5. Better graphics (spell animations, overlay, textures, hero models). No cartoony stuff.
6. More heroes
7. Requires more skill (denies, skill combos, juking)
8. Comebacks are completely feasibly while in LoL they hardly ever happen.
9. Taunts
10. Announcer packs
11. More alt-avatars

Okay, even if we assume for a moment that it is better than LoL...

What makes it better than DotA 2?

Different characters and balance, it's really just a matter of preference.

1. needs explained. Lol will run pretty on a nice rig, and it will run well enough on a graphing calculator. Its ability to run on nearly any PC makes its engine good in my opinion.
2. Fair enough, but how short? I was under the impression that 20-30 minute average lol games was the gold standard for mobas.

3. Fair, I like the sense of progression, but fair point.

4. Fair

5. Subjective. I like cartoony stuff. And I like Lols art style. Barring models in need of rework, it maintains a strong sense of unity while having tons of disparate characters. And cartoony stuff isn't bad. Oh, and League will run on nearly any computer. Much like World of Warcraft, it has lead to lol being one of the most played computer games period.

6. More is not better.

7. Denying sucks. Just because it needs more skill doesn't mean its more fun. Doing advanced calculus takes math skill. Doesn't make it more fun than say....playing lol, or hon, or dota2.

8.You are gonna need to explain this one. Comebacks are possible if you suck. Just like in lol. At low levels of play comebacks are always possible. Its just that at high level small mistakes snowball easier since pros don't make mistakes (as often).

9. Explain. League has taunts.

10/11. Fair but not gameplay relevant.

HoN has consistently had the best mechanics of any MOBA I've played.

However, the company(S2 Games) has completely sold out and turned the game into a shadow of what it used to be.

BUT, objectively speaking, I.e. if you're not a retarded fanboy, yes, HoN has the best mechanics...
Probably the worst community, worst company, worst almost everything, but still best mechanics...

I don't even why know do people say that Lol has no denying.
Lol has plenty of denying.
You can deny creeps by harassing them. You can deny them by zoning them out. You can deny by letting their waves.You can deny by freezing the lane. You can deny pushing to turret. You can deny by ganking. You can deny through straight up killing.
There are plenty of ways to deny in Lol, they're just not the boring Dota ways.
