Default DotA 2

Defense of the Ancients 2!

The top playing game on steam and no thread?

I got 429 hours on it.

Probably over 9000 in DotA 1.

Yeah, been playing League of legends a lot. Never really played Dota 1, might give it a go eventually, heard some good things about it.

If LoL is your cup of tea then Dota 2 probably isn't.

I've already logged 850+ hours of Dota 2, my favorite game by far.

I'm too invested in LoL, to make the switch!

I think I like the champion designs in LoL better than DOTA tbh.

LOL is better but I still like DOTA 1. Dota 1 has more heroes to choose from and I know how to use most of them. I just keep dying in LOL.

I play a ton of HON! Like easily have over 1000 games on it.

I find LOL was very kiddy looking to me (looked like a comic book type thing or something I dunno how to explain it).

Tried Dota 2 once (had beta key forever), and just never got into it. Loved the original DOTA from WC3 though :)

the problem I have with allot of these games is that I get really bored with the grinding and usually end up quiting the game and moving on to a different one. I haven't found a online game yet that I replay except for D2 LOD which I think is funny because the gmae is so old and the graphics are not good at all but I do keep going back to the game after each ladder reset

I played enough Dota... Dota 2 doesn't really interest me, I wanted something similar but different. LoL filled that gap and now I find myself playing GW2 sPvP which is similar but still very different. Dota 2 is Dota with some fancy new features but the same old gameplay.
