So you agree that art direction is similar, main difference is that Dota2 is of much higher quality?Yeah indeed, in these 2 pics they do look alike. Because the quality of that dota2 screenshot is so ****ing terrible it actually comes close to the terrishit gfx of LoL.

And remember how HoN looked at it's beta phase and then QQ more about dota...
Dota haters all u do is self-ownage....
If all you guys going to judge games based on graphics MOBA style games aren't for you.
Me? I'm going to try playing dota2 before I judge it. Did the same with HoN haven't regret it. S2 might make me regret it soon coz of the direction they're taking the game into. We'll see.
Explain this, please.and still manage to beat HoN
Chinese teams don't gank as heavily and choose to focus on farming because ganking is easily turned into a waste of time and potential feed for the enemy team due to counterganks and general awareness, while farming in a perfect environment has far more successful outcomes than it has failed ones.
So basically, Chinese DotA isn't action packed because the players are too aware and skillful to allow it to be action packed. The few times they've been caught off guard (Like DTS in WCG last year did to EHome), the game was intense and the Chinese adapted (however not successfully) to the European gank/push heavy style.
Which one has better gameplay HoN or LoL? HoN
Which one is more successful? LoL
How is LoL more successful? Because they got bigger player base and avarage game hours are 10 times higer than in HoN and also higher than World of Warcraft.
So if anything, it only makes sense that Valve wanted graphics looking closer to LoL, to steal their players, since Valve cares more about profit(which is obvious) and cares less for gameplay and response from community.
huh.. they shoudln't say "live game in progress" and then not stream the actual game. either they want to hide how embarassing it looks, or there isn't a game in progress. either way.
I really don't understand why they would pull so much publicity for the game when it is "pre-beta." Why have a 1 million dollar prize for the number one team if you're showing off something that is so unpolished and incomplete? It is like they're attempting to kill the fans hopes.
chinese dota is plenty action packed. since smoke was added early ganking/pushing has become the norm
Tiny offically no.1 hero of DotA2
if you think they look similar you are a. euro b. downs c. both
