    I just wanted to add in my perspective of a similar game related to it prior, is it that big of a deal? I compared LoL and Dota 2 for having similar playstyles and requiring a lot of focus, so it's not like I was off-topic, I just wanted to add in to what I was thinking at the time, sorry if it bothered you.

    League is the Anime version of dota.

    I don't really like the anime aspect of league and the culture surrounding it, also my friends play dota.

    There's a few reasons I personally prefer Dota 2 over League...

    -A much more loose "tribunal" system on Dota 2 compared to League
    -Higher skill cap game
    -Voice interaction between teammates instead of typing constantly
    -Much more variety in builds, and styles (although League has more champions, for the majority of them you have a straight path in what to build in a small item pool, as for Dota 2 there's great option)
    -eSports is more exciting because of the massive cash pools
    -Less team orientated than League of Legends (if you're fed on League of Legends you have a much lower chance of winning a game than if you're fed on Dota 2)
    -Heroes/Items in Dota 2 are much more amplified in power than League of Legends creating a more exciting and fun game.

    I think it mainly boils down to what your friends play.
    Many more of my friends play league, hence i've always been stuck with league. The gaming experience is just so much more valuable when you can play with friends.
