If the dota song video doesn't work

post #2 of 22
'On the other hand, the free-to-play League of Legends, developed by Riot Games, was very much the spiritual successor to DOTA in both content and execution'

This is wrong. League of Legends is nothing like DotA and contains pretty much nothing from it. It's not even close to having the same heroes or items and anyone who has played both games will agree with me. LoL having the same map and being a MOBA game does not alone make it very similar to DotA. If anything, Heroes of Newerth comes much, much closer to DotA, but it is still lacking.

Not trying to argue which game is better, btw.

Sad thing is that people will take that video as fact.

What is sad, is yesterday a guy came in our mumble, he asked if there was anyone who played LoL. We told him nope, and coincidentally we were already talking about games were waiting to come out. We got on the topic of DoTA2 and the guy who asked if any of us played Lol, I **** you not, asked "What is Dota?" My face hit my desk... Just goes to show you how many people don't know where the origins of games can come from and think that LoL or HoN are just genres of their own.

Honestly that isn't that surprising considering how old war 3 is these days and who LoL is marketed too. Hope Dota 2 improves on Dota instead of a just being copy/paste of Dota with better a better engine. I know a lot of people hate on how much LoL changed over Dota but they did do some things right that wish Dota had done.
