The third battle is a new type of battle; it’s a “debate.” Share with us your thoughts on which game title you feel is the true champion of MOBA games. The obvious choices are LoL (League of Legends) and DOTA 2, but is there something else that belongs in this discussion?

Funny you mentioned DotA 1, in our country a lot of people still plays it. In fact, there still are tournaments being held for DotA 1 :eek::D


Is DOTA still supported, I have seen that the game is still widely played in Asian countries and parts elsewhere, but does the community input still result in patches or is the game EoL?

As far as I know Icefrog always patched Dota 1 because a lot of people are still playing it, he always works on Dota 2 first though. I think this last major patch might have been the last update to Dota 1 because there is a lot to add and I don't know if it'll be even possible to get the talent trees working in Dota 1 (would be hard for some heroes).

In Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and the other SEA countries people still play Dota 1 in net cafes even though Dota 2 is available. Although some PCs might not run it well there. Whatever makes them happy I guess, just shows how much people love Dota, or they aren't willing to let go haha.

Yep, I can attest to that. I am from the Philippines and a lot of people are still playing DotA 1. Most of them are saying that DotA 2 just feels very different, that's why they didn't shift to DotA 2.

in my opinion its League of Legends. the largest factor is because it's very fun to play and just meets my thoughts and on top of this it's free to play. yes, there are shops but you dont need to buy anything to stay competitive

also it's a very deep game, not just hack and slay style, it's very strategic

and last but not least the developers are very user friendly and caring. they really care for the game and update it very often

It had been mentioned, but lacking elaboration. DOTA 2 players went deep into discussion their game.
