Don't get too excited.


Dota 2 is less forgiving.

After a few weeks, they will default back to the easier more forgiving option of the two.

My first real MoBA game was HoN, which I managed to get a closed beta key very early. The game was really fun until the player base expanded due to more keys being distributed. To this day, the HoN community is still terrible. I am glad that DotA 2 beta came out after HoN became pay to play (free to play now). Out of all the games (DotA, HoN, and LoL), I find DotA players more tolerable. You get the occasional diva, but at least they were willing to cooperate unlike HoN or LoL players. The worst experiences always related to international players from either Russia or any of the South American countries. This is just my experience and I'm sure some prefer this game over DotA 2 and what not. I am neutral to LoL since the game is just whatever to me. I find no enjoyment from playing it even with friends. If you like LoL, then that is great. The whole MoBA war is as dumb as the console war. The fact that some judge others based on the game they play is laughable.

And they've done a lot to remedy that in Season 3. I need only point to the earlier mentioned GGU vs Curse game last week (or really, most GGU LCS games, they just need to learn how to close games out), LoL games aren't over until the nexus falls, there's already been a couple LCS games that had all nexus turrets down at the end of the game. LoL season 3 with denial being almost completely gone outside of killing your opponent, losing a lane, even badly, rarely dooms a team.

But your opinion on esports is a little depressing. It doesn't have to be a marketing joke if you don't want it to be.
As someone else pointed out, one of the reasons hockey is underappreciated is how few people actually play it and how difficult the basic rules are compared to most sports. People don't like watching "competitive" sports/esports once a game becomes lopsided enough where the rest of the game is just waiting for the victory animation. With the Season 3 changes, it's quite rare. With denial, it's even more obvious when it happens. I wouldn't watch a professional football team take on a high school team for longer than the first couple minutes to laugh, but with DOTA's mechanics, games can end up that way far easier than LoL games can.

DOTA 2 might be more competitive, it might even be the better game, but LoL is the better e-sport and e-sports get the money and fans.

Some cosmetic items go for 4000 usd. steam also has a marketplace where you can sell some of your items for steam wallet money. or if you know how to trade at forums you can trade them for cash via paypal or webmoney.

i find myself sadly spending half my time trading instead of playing but i find it quite fun.
One of my old guildmates made $500/person to carry players out of Bronze to Gold in LoL's ranked mode (carry, not play for them). It'd usually take him a weekend to do it. People were so adamant ELO hell existed that he made money off them. Always found that funny.

DOTA 2 sees 270K players online at the same time at peek.

Riot claims 3 million peak online players on at the same time, so that puts it still massively ahead.

3 Million for any game is huge. Maybe 3 million play during 24 hours but not at same time.

The entire infographic is visible below, but here are a few of its claims: League of Legends has a playerbase of some 32 million players active per month, with 12 million active per day, and an average of 3 million concurrent users at peak hours

Just saying what Riot released last October. So only a few months ago and this article claims there has been no dent in LoL playerbase.

The only reasons I believe it is because it's so excessive. If it was a shock and awe marketing, simply saying ~1.5M would have been enough, but they claimed double that. Then take that I've seen login queues past 50k (Season 3 patch) for the NA client alone. And finally, the LoL Season 2 championships, an online stream, had more viewers than the televised MLB World Finals... I believe it.
