LoL is improved from DotA.  DotA2 is the same as DotA.  By far, LoL is more fun than DotA2.

dota and sc2 are better in literally no way. maybe those games WERE the biggest but they aren't anymore. LoL has bigger tournaments, more prize money, more players, and more viewers @2bitSmOkEy

 @StarkJJ I know rite? Almost as much of a waste as the billions of dollars that get poured into the NFL every year.

 @StarkJJ Or maybe spend it on the WASP Alliance for the De-Africanization of America?

 

Like seriously, there are many more worse ways to spend that money. Making gamers test their skill to get it is pretty harmless.
