Just making the post to see how many people here play mobas such as: League of Legends, Dota and Smite. I personally love Smite and it's probably my favorite game. I know that the fan base for LoL is a LOT bigger that Smite but from what I've seen Smite has a better fan base and user friendlier community.

Moba: also known as action real-time strategy (ARTS), originated as a sub-genre of the real-time strategy (RTS) genre of video games, in which a player controls a single character in one of two teams.

I personally play League of Legends. The community is quite possibly the worst one I've seen yet for a video game. It's even worse than Garry's Mod.

The game itself is quite fun, though.

I used to play LoL and dota 2 and even a bit of HON, now days I just play an occasional heroes of the storm game.

Played League for a little bit. I'm not really too big on PvP stuff. I wanted to try out Smite since someone told me it's a bit similar to WoW BGs and Arena. Maybe I'll check it out one of these days. I only do well healing though.

I love League of Legends. People say the community is bad, but I'm not easily offended, and it's easy to mute or report retards so it's not that big of a deal. Plus I usually just play with friends, or play alone in game modes where I know I can carry.

I've heard about Smite from a few people and am considering playing it. Not too familiar with it though.

I don't think I'd consider playing DOTA. A friend of mine has begged me on multiple occasions but I think I'd rage too hard for it to be worth it.

I play LoL, used to play Smite a bit too. Tried Dota and didn't really like it. Also played a bit of Tome: Immortal Arena on Steam. LoL does have a bad community but on one of my first Dota matches I got raged at much worse than in any LoL match I've ever played.

I played both Dota and LoL for over 400 hours+ i would say.

In my opinion. Dota is the better game and have ( just a little bit ) better community.
I think LoL lost out in both gaming and community aspect because i think LoL is just plain bad when it comes balancing team. To make money, they have to regularly chuck out a lot of new champions and try to balance them with each other a lot. Some champion got left in the gutter for so long that no one bother using them ( not even the pros ). I actually someone use Poppy / Skarner / Urgot HALF A YEAR after i started playing LoL. Yes that is how bad some champions are compared to other hero.

Sure in Dota, some are also in pretty bad situation and in need of fixes. But you just don't see a hero being ignored for a long time. Take Chen for example, he is one of the hero in Dota then players don't use, why ? Because his design makes him requires a player to be extremely good at macroing, something most normal dota players don't attempt to learn. Does pro use him ? Yes ! Infact one of the most rarely played hero in current patch of Dota is the signature hero of many support pros. So in this case, heros are all fairly balanced when compared to LoL, most hard to play heros in Dota are just unpopular because of their steep learning curves, once you pass that. You can see that they are viable.

That is just not the case for LoL. I think it is because in LoL they regularly patch the game every few month, while in Dota, it's creator IceFrog only patch the game like once or twice a year, so IceFrog have way more time to get data from games and patch it to fix the balance properly.

The community is that bad? I've just started to really get into it, and most of the people i've seen are actually pretty nice. Or maybe its just that after getting ddosed multiple times by people on Garry's Mod no community can really be worse...
