The thing is League is like Pop music, easy to eat. But when it comes to srs stuff Dota is where it shines. Thats why Dota even gets more prize pools in tournaments, its a bit more serious game.

Dota prize pools are bigger because riot refuses to make league pools bigger - it has nothing to do with how "serious" of a game it is.

It does, Valve takes Dota more serious than Riot takes league, so Valve actually gives money for tournaments where league prize pool comes from sponsors.

Uhhhhh...heari, before you start spouting stuff about a game you don't follow you should do some research.

Riot funds their pro scene directly as well as the prize pools.  Also using sponsors is a normal practice in sports; the presence of sponsors indicates that companies see advertising value in reaching the audience.  Basically, the more sponsorship money you have, the bigger the event.

idk why you're so salty - if dota2 is the better game then the player numbers should reflect that

Yes riot does indeed put their own money ofc, but majority comes from sponsors , but does that mean dota doesnt get sponsors? They do but valve also unloads the cash them selves thats why prize pools are usually 2 times larger than LoL.

"idk why you're so salty - if dota2 is the better game then the player numbers should reflect that "
Well as i said League is a bit more relaxing and easy to play game and it is more appealing to the casual player as where dota is much more harder on starting players, but it gives more of a reward if you learn how to play it as it has more depth.
Here you answer me this, Bieber and Gangnam style videos get billions of views on Youtube while some really really great music like AC/DC and others for example get something like 100mil 50mil etc?
Same goes with LoL, numbers dont mean much at all.

Valve contributed about 1.6m to the prize pool for TI 2015

Meanwhile the prize pool for worlds 2015 was over 2m, which all came out of riot's pocket

Riot also puts a lot of "hidden" money into competitive league - unlike valve they run their top tier competitions in-house as much as possible.  Valve instead relies on outside organizations to run the tournaments.

Granted I'm not familiar with dota2, but from what people say about it, the game is far more individual-focused than team focused when compared to league.  League's de-emphasis of individual mechanics doesn't make it a more "casual" game - it means that it promotes a more macro level of play (which is in fact much harder to grasp).

And i guess thats where our opinions differ, I was talking about it because i have experienced both of these games for extended period of time and put plenty of hours in both of them. But that is fine, everyone gets to have their own opinion anyways.

Wait....did....Heari just equate AC/DC as the serious, not casual, not user friendly of the music world?

Rly? Lmaolmaolmao


There is a reason AC/DC is a go to for cover bands in the bar/pub scene....because its an easy 4/4 beat that any drunk idiot can dance to

Nothing serious musicality wise there
