LoL hit the market first and thus got a lot of "My friends are playing it" momentum, plus it has the whole sunk cost thing going for it due to its ****ty business model. LoL is also marketed much more aggressively and sells itself on T&A way harder.

LoL certainly isn't more popular due to any actual merits the game itself has, because it doesn't have any.

It's different, in that League has been designed to be forgiving, while DotA is usually not. But that's just how their game is over there.

Because the game is almost braindead. Dota2 has a lot more depth in it.
