Topic: lol or Dota2?

So after watching the new Pure Pwnage movie (my favourite film of the year so far)
I'm a little tempted to get into one of these MOBA's

Still a little apprehensive though as i'd be playing with strangers (none of my friends play them)
Does that matter?

Edit:- I've read in a few places that the MOBA community is full of whining knobhead kids..
How true is this?

Re: lol or Dota2?

HotS is the easiest one, try that. If after getting to know it you feel like you want more, you can try LOL or Dota 2. Just remember that Dota 2 is full f2p and nothing (gameplay wise) is behind a paywall. Now LOL on the other hand...

Re: lol or Dota2?

Having played both, prepare for a retardedly steep learning curve. DOTA is the more complex one but also more rewarding. You'll spend something like 100 hours playing before you start understanding wth is going on.

Not sure where you get that LoL is pay to win? you cant even buy the ingame currency needed to get the items that do give you an advantage, that is purely made with in game earnings. you can purchase boosts for both XP and their ingame currency, but you can not buy anything with money that gives you any game play advantage whatsoever over anyone else, only your time playing the game does that.

to the original point i believe League of Legends is easier to learn than DoTa 2, both communities are full of toxic people, pretty much any competitive scene that you rely on other players for a victory will pull out people that think their crap dont stink.

as for playing on your own, thats fairly ok, it does make the game harder as you will lack communication or even a little synergy with the person/people you play with, as with most games that you can play with friends, its always more fun doing so.
