why DOTA is so dead?

the new League season has started like two weeks ago and just the number of ranked (90% are still unranked) people on the West Europe server alone is 3x Dota's TOTAL playercount
lmao

    Dota has almost lasted for 20 years. Name another game that has been in the steam top 10 for almost 20 years.

    dota has never been as popular since it isnt as braindead as league. i havent played in over 5 years so i dont know what state the game is in today but they have a big player base of people who are too mindbroken to play anything else at this point

      They made the game more complicated and longer

      It's trying to appeal to the league demographic by changing what made the game different in the first place, therefore alienating their original audience. Me included, I played from 2013 to 2020 and switched to tekken because I don't have 4 morons chained to my feet every game.

      I keep hearing that but League is now faster and easier

      >change their roshan to demolish towers and now games are shorter
      >change map to create more battles, now is easier to plant observers
      >easier to understand the "objectives" (dragon and roshan)
      >If you kill dragon or roshan the game will end faster and if you avoid conflict you will lose
      Dota is still better but LoL has made the game less stressful

        Reminder that the "Chief Design Officer & Executive Vice President of Research and Development" at Riot thought Bloodseeker's ult was too difficult to recognize. Their assumption is that you and the fanbase at large is moronic and design their games around it.

          Even I an ex-Dotard if I were to play now and a new hero, throws a spell that is in no way relatable to others, I'd probably would not understand

        You can have an appreciation for a games depth even while not necessarily being mechanically capable.
        I know a guy who understands the game in and out but is kinda shit at playing it, this knowledge actually gives him the edge over a game like league where it's easier to understand so you can't really get an advantage over players just by learning how everything works.

          Dota is so interesting and a lot of fun when you start getting good at the game and also have a solid group of people to q together with. LoL is just so boring in comparison (played it from s1 to 2018).

              The game isn't a chore to play, it only sucks when you're micromanaging morons and carrying them. LoL is shorter, but so much less rewarding, interesting and stale in comparison. Almost all the games play the same, in Dota that's not the case at all. I also hate LoL catering to mid DK syndrome morons, not to mention all the ff at 15 calls, makes me sick.

    5 reasons
    >TI4 Happened and introduced the Chinese Social score that drove people away thanks to troll reports and lowered their score below 2000
    >Valve's own incompetence in hiring Campo Santo trannies and sociopaths drunk with power to abuse and ban people who they don't like
    >Sean Vanaman
    >Valve confirming on forums and patch notes that Forced 50 IS real and they do that "to not make matchmaking easy and drive players away" which caused the inverse
    >The fricking Battle Pass System and exclusivities that killed the dota 2 store and made people insanely mad, Alongside the Skeleton king BP shit that even pros raged over it because they would had to pay a ton of money just to reach lvl500 to get the skeleton king arcana, also many other shit that happened too.
    All of this happened during Campo Santo's reign of dilatation, same period where even fricking HOTS and LoL had a good rise on the playerbase and had their best years until Blizzard killed HOTS and LoL went into a decline.

      Also, I will Never forgive blizzard with the E-Sport shit that killed HOTS

      Because it’s made by known scammers who commit false advertising and fraud.

      Valve screwed over the Artifact fanbase by cancelling the Artifact 2.0 beta without even allowing users to invite friends like they said they would in January 2021 and does not deserve your financial support for these gross consumer-unfriendly practices.

        That clip is out of context. Prior to the reveal, Day9 said the following:

        #t=8h33m

        >"This is not an extra game mode. This is not even a game like CSGO, that's based on Counter-Strike, or Dota 2, that's based on Dota 1, this is a game that's an entirely new beast unto its own."

        To be fair, these remarks, while misleading, aren't really wrong. Despite its shared setting, Artifact's core gameplay is nothing at all like Dota 2's, and deserves to be seen as its own IP.

        But still, what Day9 said set the expectation of a completely new game with no ties to any previous Valve titles. The reaction isn't because of the reveal itself, but the false expectations set by Day9's remarks.

        Additionally, at the next TI the crowd CHEERED at being told they were in the Artifact beta.

        #t=1m8s

        Even if it was true, you know what else was poorly-received when first announced?
