I'm working on the outline for the following video; Myths.

The idea of this is to bring up the popular myths that plague each game and discuss reality to see if the myth can be substantiated or not.

I have the following so far;
Dota 2;
- It's just DotA Allstars with better graphics
- It will never be good because of Icefrog's ego (Everyone hates icefrog)
- It has the least snowballing (THANKS CAMPIR LOL)

LoL;
- It's a kiddie game compared to the others
- It requires no skill
- Is pay to win

HoN;
- It's dead (The population has increased every year since its release)
- It's just DotA Allstars with better graphics


etc.

More?

As far as I know, LoL players who are unfamiliar with it tend to think that DotA (and HoN?) have ridiculous item systems, with the whole strength, agility, intelligence thing. I'm sure it makes sense to someone who plays DotA, but to me it seems super counterintuitive.

Dota has complexity for the sake of complexity (doesn't add to game depth)

-if you could prove that the nuances of Dota actually add to the game's depth in a meaningful way, that couldn't be achieved in a less complicated manner you'll surely rustle some jimmies of LoL fanboys.

Bad point is bad. Of course the population has increased, I'm sure you remember back in beta when literally every Brazilian with a computer was playing the game, and then when it launched and actually cost money, all of the freeloaders went back to dota?

Yeah, going F2P may have increased the population, but they had no other choice. They were losing players much, much faster than they were gaining them without the freeloaders.

You can't deny creeps in Lol.
HoN is rocket surgery.
X character in Y game is a blatant rip off from Z character in P game.
Any choice a game makes that is anyway different from DOTA is automatically wrong.

Is there some color under bronze that we don't know about that's specifically for Brazilians?
