MOBA's and which one to start with?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I'm an old FPS and RTS gamer. Played loads of hours in Starcraft and Total Annihilation. Myth and Myth II were probably my favorite takes on a tweaked style of RTS. MOBA's look like I might enjoy them. Now just to choose one to start with. Should I go with DOTA 2 or League? Maybe something else? Reasons?

Thanks

You have got to be trolling.

This.

If not, do yourself a big favor and avoid this genre entirely.

I'm not sure why you think I'm trolling. Two of the games I mentioned are obviously very popular and the genre appears to be growing as well. Looks like a mix of RTS and RPG from what I've seen. What is your issue with the genre?

I play both and imo i find LoL to be more fun than Dota 2. But i also like Dota 2 because of the graphics.

Dota 2

-better graphics
-gameplay is slow

LoL

-easier to find a match because there are plenty of players
-fast movements/better combo

LoL is more accessable, but dota2 is the deeper game. LoL doesn't have mics(unless it got updated?), on dota2 there are mics and people will rage. There is little strategy in league it's mostly a mechanical game, dota2 has strategy.
