Doesn't league have a tournament going on right now? numbers always jump at times like this

>>324296929
But I mean how did we let these normie games take over?
>>
>>324296897
I'm probably preaching to the wrong crowd, considering most people who go on /v/ are under 18.
>>
>>324297010
It can be run on toasters
It's not complicated
Lots of people play it

So it got popular. Then people wanted to watch it
>>
>>324297010
Is a game that takes thousands of hours to get good at a normie game? I mean, of course CS LOL and Hearthstone are, but DOTA is just popular.
>>
>>324297010
...?

Oh, you actually watch games more than you play? Or do you want people to watch people playing games you like instead?

Sorry normie, I'm not from normieville so I don't understand your normie customs, but here on /v/, we'd rather play the game rather than watch other people play.

Please refrain from making a thread tomorrow asking why your favorite Let's Player is playing normie games or whatnot.
>>
>>324297291
You definitely need a lot of hours to be good at CS. Sure, you can fuck around with 0 hours, but that applies to almost any game.

Why do Dota 2 players think their game is capable of competing with League of Legends? As far as numbers go, LoL is in an entirely different universe.

it's the same kind of publisher/developer fanboyism as with players who think modern sega games are good because their games were good in the 90s, people think valve games should be good just because it's by valve even if it's trash inferior to its competitors in every way like dota2

Money.

It is simple. Those are the four highest paying multiplayer games on a professional level. Interest in "e-sports" has risen since the salad days of Korean Star Craft tournaments and Ramada ballroom Street Fighter tournaments. Hence these games have the highest "passive" viewership--I personally know people who only casual play LoL in comp stomp games or unranked normals, but watch LCS for hours on the weekend and keeps up with all the professional drama.
>>
>>324299329
Been around for over twice as long
Better living for people who are actually good at it
Competitive scene not kept alive by Riot injecting money into it

It'll die eventually but it will die after LoL does, and it doesn't have to compete because league is to Dota what WoW is to, say, FFXI.

I see this like the "x-treme" sports of the 90s. People will whine and moan about it not being sports and that the players in it will be too old and unfit for society eventually. All while not realizing the power of branding and commercial licensing.

Most people feel the need to get some sense of long term progression from games they put time in regularly. Otherwise it feels like a waste of time. So people rather put a couple hundred hours into CS GO rather than into a few different single player RPGs.

The need for these kinds of games was recognized, and thus they were made, obviously as accessible as possible...
>>
>>324295802
It's a shame that the pinnacle of competitive gaming is now the FGC. At least they haven't sold out.
