The playerbase, which greatly affects the way the game is played since you need to team up with several other people of that playerbase.

>>280761818
The games themselves are alright, with balancing issues though.
It's the retarded foreigners or just generally stupid teammates. Just play with at least 2 friends at all times.
>>
last hitting, farming for 30 minutes for a match that ends 10 minutes later, matches that generally end much later than when the outcome becomes apparent
>>
RTS where you control one unit. Does that sound fun?
>>
On paper, the game is one of the better multiplayer designs. It does not, however, account for the players, which have to consistently work together as a team. Everyone who has played these games has had "that match" where everything worked out on both sides and had a great time. They then delve into a pattern of shitty games looking for that high again, eventually learning to like whatever experience they drive from it.
>>
"Fun with friends" requirement

>>280764832
That high is very good though it happens one every 20 games

>tfw no Meta Knight porn

Life is misery.

>>280766017
Oh absolutely. And it's not like every single match you play is going to suck, but once you've had a taste of the real deal you crave more. Making a few friends along the way makes it all the better.
>>
league stole all my friends from me.

all they do is sit in skype and talk and play league for hours nad hours

we all used to hang out and do things

when i ask them to go outside they say they have no money yet they keep buying league skins
>>
Okay so it's not really MOBAs that are shit but Dota clones
Games like Bloodline Champions and Magicka Wizard Wars are pretty good
>>
>>280761818
>>280761818
is it even possible to jump into dotas? everyone plays the game religiously to the point where no one new can join in without getting utterly destroyed over and over again without any progress
>>
>>280766517
i don't know about dota but ive been playing league and everyone is complete dogshit around my level so it's pretty easy
>>
>>280766517
It's really not that hard if you take a little time to familiarize yourself with it, since depending on the game, it's not always apparent what's going on while you're playing it (lol was terrible about this for me). Again, having a friend there makes it so much better, at least until you're familiar with it.
>>
>>280766218
Oh I play with my girlfriend its not so bad then but we still wish we had better teammates duoing gets you so far
>>
>>280766517
You underestimate how unskilled the vast majority of the community is for any MOBA. You will get smashed quite a bit when first jumping in, but that's just because MOBAs play very differently and there's a lot of stuff you have to pick up on. Eventually you get the hang of it and at that point you're on equal footing.

good times

Some people can't stand the losses until you play that game that makes you feel on top of the world

This, MOBAS are a genre that's very PvP focused, but until the truly good parts (teamfights and skirmishes, conboing your skills with your team), there's needless filler in the form of farming and trading in-lanes.

Compare to RTS where I can attack at any time, only limited by my resources, an FPS where it's all about finding and engaging my enemy or a fighting game where turtling is almost impossible%and always frowed upon)

MOBAS are the american football/soccer of games, everyone does that shit and makes a big fuss out of it, and it has the worse community out there, but there'll always be infinetly better, but less appreciated, stuff out there.

Some of these points are good and true. Turn radius is shit, passives in Dota are shit (in LoL it's almost always a passive + active), RNG is shit ("oh hey the stun lasted a full 4 seconds, I shouldn't have gotten a kill but I did and now I'll snowball"), and there are a lot of fire 'n forget abilities (whereas LoL has been going back and remaking characters so those skills are skillshots). Oh and the community actually plays on their region specific servers so you rarely get BRs, Russians, etc.

But all of that doesn't matter, LoL's eternal grind for new champs is shit, the price of skins is shit, limited runepages and having to grind for runes is shit,
