I haven't played dota 2 but I found League of Legends very boring especially the first 10 minutes. It just feels like a really dumb-downed RTS with a few RPG elements. I assume all these MOBA games follow the same formula though

It's very popular though so I must be in the minority.

Dota's hard to watch, key moments of the battle happen within about .2 seconds in the middle of a billion other animations. Unless you've played 100's of games you're going to miss 80% of it, I reckon.

Also, why is LoL more popular at events (and in general) than Dota?

Probably because dota is still in beta so it's a bit harder to get access to.

LoL is a bit more noob friendly as well. You don't lose gold when you die and there is no denying making the first 10 minutes of the game shit.

I watch dota more than regular TV shows tbh, used to be SC2 and since i stopped playing that just have people queueing MM queues / online tourneys on my TV in the background.

You are right about it being hard to watch if you are new, but its like any game really.

I don't think LoL is that bad actually, It's just completely different. Its not as passive as Dota its more based around team fights and synergy where as dota is more about map control / lane comps and having a certain role
