If DoTA2 is better than LoL in every way, why is LoL more popular?

I like Dota fanboys here on the ****ing general discussion forums of League of Legends, I'm not going on Dota forums because I hate it, you should maybe do the same if you are smart

Because it isn't. The two appeal to different crowds, and thus far the crowd LoL appeals to appears to be larger.

Hitting the market first only means you'll get short-term benefits no? If DoTA was the superior game people should have shifted to it over the years.

Over the years?

It will be one year a week from today

Because Riot listens to everyone's QQ instead of Valve listening to only competitive players QQ. Look at the 60% win rate at some of the Dota heroes.

dota is more focused around hardcore gamers, something forums like these are often littered wit, which is why it gets so much praise on these forums.

and league's probably bigger for clarity reasons. its significantly less punishing for beginners too.

LoL has been made to appeal to many audience types, and reflects this in their changes. (such as making SR easier to read in the update because casuals were having difficulties with it)
Dota 2 appeals to veteran players that have played for a long time.
