League of Legends

League of Legends is a creation of Riot Games inspired by the classic Warcraft III mod Dota (Defense of the Ancients). This free MMO game mixes strategy and RPG elements in a perfect way to offer exciting and always different matches.


SMITE is a third person MOBA published by Hi-Rez Studios. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE places the camera in a third person perspective behind the god. This allows for a unique playing experience since a player can only view what is in front of them, allowing an enemy to sneak up from behind for a gank. Players must also use the mouse to manually aim all their abilities and auto attacks.

  1. so i hope you know after the fall of the first dota game the makers left and started riot and made league so realisticly dota 2 copied league of legends because they obtained the rights to the graphics engin

    • this is 100% wrong. Dota in wc3 had 3 devs, first dev went and made HoN, he then gave the mod to the guy that wnet on and made LoL, at this point in time the game was not as popular as it would end up beeing when the third guy came to power, namly ice frog. He is the one that made dota to the game it is today and later went on and made dota 2 with valve. if you dont know your facts dont talk.

    • What, are you daft?

      – You can change controls
      – Use mousewheel or numpad to change view
      – You don’t need space for the camera to move with you, you move camera via arrow keys. You can also lock the camera without holding down a key.

      Seriously, have you even gone into the settings?

  2. As my name states: Rest in Peace every MOBA game! It was nice playing with you all, these games were great, but it is time for them to die. The good old balance is no longer here… The good ideas were turned into s**t and parodies of themselves. The three of the greatest MOBAS: DotA2, League of Legends, and SMITE are soon to die, and don’t say that the games are alive, they are dead. Only noobs or people who wasted so much money onto these games. It all started with one idea: “Aeon of Strife, a Starcraft 2 mod. After it came Defence of the Ancients, or DotA1 if you may call it, a Warcraft 3 mod. Then these three games began to develop.” After a few years of running, it is time to put these games to rest. They were the three kings of the MOBA market, but now the market is about to die. It will remain for some time, because the developers still want their games to live, but they no longer succeed in doing so. DotA2 Reborn is horrible now, it is unbalanced, and it no longer have that perfect meta of 2013 before the TI3. League of Legends’ developers are just trying to survive, because the game is no longer appealing. and SMITE, were always horrible, good idea, but it followed the Pay To Truly Play of the League, so not a lot of people wanted to get into the game. I have played all 3 games, for a good amount of time, but it is sad to realize that these games which started the new generation of MOBA games, the three kings, are soon will be dead. I am off to the DotA1 and Aeon of Strife! Just let these games to die, they are no longer worth your time!

  3. whoever says this game sucks are real life noobs. Had to admit, learning curve in this game is unfortunately very steep but once u get a grasp of the basics, well, you will be stuck on your monitor and wont play any other MOBA games ever!
    Graphics are wow, and most of all strategy is the key and community is somewhat amusing except russians (kappa)…

  4. I honestly think dota 2 is better, and if you just did the tutorial of course you don’t know how the real dota 2 is like. And if you’re calling it for creepy people then you’re probably just bad at it.

  5. I have to say that after playing LoL, Smite, and various other MOBAs out there that Dota 2 is easily the best I have played. I mean sure when I first tried it I didn’t like it because of the difficulty of the whole thing in general, but after I learned the ropes it became a much better experience overall.

  6. Dota is one of the worst MOBA’s ever made. Stop saying LoL copied them, LoL is more active and more popular then this trash game.

  7. Dota2 will and always will be better than League of Legends.

    Well, for all those idiots out there who think LoL copied Dota2, if anything it’s the opposite.
    Dota was the ORIGINAL MOBA. And I should know because my brother was a BETA tester for Dota2.

    Now, what’s also good about Dota2? All heroes are free. Sure, you can buy skins but that isn’t necessary for gameplay and won’t give you any advantage over any players. Oh, did I mention it’s also free to play?

    Some people don’t play Dota2 because, honestly, it is more difficult that LoL. You can deny towers and creeps which adds a whole new level of gameplay to the genre of gaming we call a MOBA. So, all you noobs who think it’s too hard, every game is hard at the beginning.

    Tell me one reason League of Legends is better and please don’t make it a crappy one.

  8. Dota 2 is the best moba in my opinion , if you compare this to another moba out there ,because dota has diverse meta to play.

  9. DOTA2 must fit on any list of top 5 F2p MMO…After you learning the basics you will never play another MOBA…
    haterz gonna hate

  10. This game takes much skills and graphics are amazing,unlike some other MOBA’s like LoL which has kid’s graphics and takes no skills.

  11. Having played Warcraft 3 dots from the start I transitioned into hon beta and then to dota 2 which I am still playing. I’ve also played a handful of hours of infinite crysis and LoL. For my money dota2 is the go with a huge community, constant tournaments and updates and a reasonably good ui to boot. They all have flaws but I believe dota 2 will have the longest reign in the Mona world.

  12. Hey, if anyone is interested in a Dota 2 key for the beta I got 15 when I activated mine (cause Valve is like that), if anyone wants one I will email them my steam account.

  13. dota 2 is the best in the world moba game is the best game in the world like that lol looollll not very pleasant game the graphics and gameplay STYLE is VERY

  14. I personally hate this game and I believe that idiots play this creepy game lol, I just played tutorial that’s all, I’ll recommend to play ‘smite’ or wait and try upcoming ‘Total War: Arena’.

  15. I praised Dota 2 for the beautiful graphics with the Source engine. Although it can be confusing when it comes to managing your account, it remains its Zero-sum genre and offers wide range of customization (Store) . Well too bad, it is not recommended for low-end PCs as it requires heavy resources. I played it 3 times daily.

    Verdict: 8.5/10

  16. Hi everyone I downlowd the game but it ask me for KEY .. can if you pls guys if any have key for that game send it to me and will be so happy ………..

  17. I´ve love this game now is Dota 2 free to play so try it !. but for old players is this so bad beacuse this game play so many Russians players what means Russian language so you can hear sh**. I leave this game R.I.P this good game.

      • so i hope you know after the fall of the first dota game the makers left and started riot and made league so realisticly dota 2 copied league of legends because they obtained the rights to the graphics engine

        • Dota 2 is a carbon copy of Dota 1 with updated graphics. League is copy of Dota 1 as well, although the names of the heroes creeps and map is all different likely to avoid a lawsuit from Blizzard. All of these games are actually a copy of an even older mod for starcraft 2, which I forget the name of.

          Neither game uses the same graphics engine, Dota 2 did not obtain rights to the League graphics engine, Dota 2 runs on Valve’s proprietary “Source” engine which was around long before Leauge of Legends existed.

        • Wrong. one of the makers went of and made LoL, then Ice Frog took over and made dota to the game it is today and moved on and made dota 2 with valve. If you dont know your facts dont talk.

    • in a nutshell: dota requires mastery(micros and familiarity with heroes) , LOL requires money(for better champions)

    • On the DotA2 site u can register for a free invite. I have played DotA2 and I have about 15 invites but it laggs a lot and cash shop is quite op because it gives u bonuses in game. League of Legends is a lot of better. You really should try LoL.

          • Honestly, having played over 3000 hours on dota 2, i can say that most people here have hit the steep learners curve, hidden within the game. the tutorial is a piece of shit, that doesnt explain the idea behind the game at all. league of legends is a buy to win game, therefore if you dont want to spend money, dota 2 is better by default. also anything that you dont put time and effort in will not be fun for you. also on a side note dota 2 is much harder to play than lol, and getting killed will punish you more. its more for hardcore gamers so to speak, but im sure theres even more tricky games out there. GL HF all

  18. I know im super lat ebut if there are any leftover keys out there and you want to be a good person please send JUST 1 key and I would be forever grateful my steam is zuees101 and thank you
