Talk to Smack, he plays it all the time.
Zaphod: "LongShotzZ is slightly better than mediocre."
Sir Rex: "You know you're in deep shit when you have to ask LongShotzZ to bail you out!"
Mwcerberus: "If I had to pick between fighting 50 duck-sized LongShotzZ's or 1 horse-sized LongShotzZ I think I'd have to get my gun and kill all 51."

It's miles better than LoL. Not only does it look better, but the skill ceiling is so much higher compared to LoL. There is so much more you have to take into account in Dota, and is a lot harder for people to get into than LoL. There are also a hell of a lot more strategies than you have in LoL, which is literally 2 bot, 1 jungle, 1 mid, 1 top every single time. Dota can have aggressive trilanes, dual lanes, dual mid, junglers, aggressive junglers etc.

Valve are also constantly improving Dota 2. In November we had Diretide, a fun 5v5 game mode different to the normal game. We also had the Three Spirits update in the same month, which gave us 2 new heroes, plus a new Storm Spirit model (which is miles better than the shitty old one he had.) In December we had Wraith Night which was a hell of a lot of fun, as well as a new hero in Legion Commander. In February we had the New Bloom update, which gave us a really nice map to play on in place of the usual map, which had some awesome looking towers. It also gave us 2 new heroes in Terrorblade and Phoenix. It also gave us Ability Draft, which is one of the most retarded and fun game modes I've ever seen. We also got another new 5 man game mode in the Best, which I personally didn't enjoy, but it's still another incredible new game mode they released for a set period.

@ SHA Add me on Steam if you want and we can play some Dotes.

I play Dota, mainly with high school friends. Started playing back in March and only just - today - had my first non-limited public game out of 40-50 games in total.

Don't talk to smack about dota 2, he is scrub at it.

In essence lol and dota are the same game type.

But that's like saying counterstrike and CoD are the same game.
