“That’s a pretty weird looking DotA your playing!” This is what usually DotA 2 players would say to a LoL player. DotA 2 and LoL do similarly look the same as they are both MOBA games. Multiplayer Online Battle Arena games or MOBA for short was started by the first DotA and was a modification for the original game Warcraft.

The main reason why DotA 2 and LoL looks the same is that they are both from the same genre and both came (inspired) by the original DotA. It would be like comparing Call of Duty and Battlefield and saying that they are the exact game. Yes, both games have certain similarities but if you look into them closely, they have differences. But before we go into detail, let us first know when LoL started.
League of Legends was released in 2009 by Riot Games and claims to be the “most-played video game” in the world today with over 70 million registered accounts and 32 million active monthly players. In the world of online games, it would be really hard to keep that number over the years, most of the games that last this long are doing something that players of the genre love what they are doing.
Compared to its counterpart, DotA; League of Legends is still a MOBA or “Multiplayer Online Battle Arena” game wherein two teams of five players battle for their corner of the map. What Riot did is that they came in with the “Free-to-Play” platform where you can download the game and enjoy everything without having to spend something in return. League of Legends does have in-game items that can bring the game experience to next levels, but it isn’t required to enjoy the game itself.
Comparison between League of Legends and its counterpart
It would be best to know more about the game and at the same time know the difference between one game from another. The main reason for this is to make sure that you understand what you are looking at. The last thing you want to do is bet on a game that you do not have any idea of playing or how the game mechanics works! Today, we will try and separate DotA 2 from League of Legends so that you wouldn’t confuse yourself and bet on the right team to win you those Bitcoin!
Deny – League of Legends and Defense of the Ancients has differences when you look into them closely. The later (DotA) has a system called “denying” wherein you can kill your own “creeps” or minions so that the other team cannot get the bonus gold from killing it. This usually happens when your own creep is low on HP; you kill it so that they would not get the finishing blow. League of Legends, however, do not have this feature. You are unable to attack your own minions.
Reaction – When it comes to movement, DotA 2 has a very different movement system as when you need to change directions, the different characters in the game would move differently. Thus you need to wait for the animation before you can change direction. In League of Legends, changing of directions can happen instantly and you wouldn’t wait for your character to turn its back or whatnot. This difference means that it would be challenging to play with DotA since you can easily “kite” with melee characters due to the movement animation. In LoL, you are unable to do this.
Destruction – In League of Legends, you are unable to neither destroy the map nor target the environment. In DotA 2, you are able to click on the trees and chop them down for HP regen or they can be damaged by hero skills.
Generally, they do still have the same heroes like, carry, tank, support, heroes than can pull other heroes, heroes that can do huge AOE damages, heroes that can hide etc. They just do not look the same and League of Legends heroes does look cuter than DotA 2’s.
The popularity of League of Legends comes from the game mechanics itself. It is easier than the complex controls of DotA 2. The entry level skill needed for League is far lower than DotA, which makes it easier for new-comers to try the game out and experience it.
