Which MOBA should I start with?
There a lot of MOBAs on the market now and I'm curious about the genre but I don't know where to start.
You have 3 main options- Heroes of Newerth, Dota 2 or League of Legends. I suggest you t start with League of Legends, since Dota 2 is more hardcore and has more factors in it. I haven't played HoE, but you can try it out too.
League of Legends is definitely the easiest MOBA. Dota 2 is a LOT harder mainly because it has a lot more intricacies that take a lot of time to learn. I assume HoN is somewhere around near Dota 2 in terms of difficulty.
A search on this very site will show various guides for League of Legends.
(And for Dota 2 I believe as well)
League of Legends for sure. If you haven't played MOBAs before, League will be the easiest to learn. That being said, League is still pretty hard to get your head around without any prior MOBA experience.
HoN and Dota 2 are pretty much the same (since HoN was initially a carbon copy of DotA). You will notice that HoN has a faster pace (since it lacks turn rates and cast animations). But since I like the way Valve handles Dota 2, I personally prefer it over HoN. So if you want a challenge, Dota 2 or HoN would be the way to go. I have a beginners guide to Dota 2 if you are interested.
LoL - easy to learn, hard to master.
Dota 2/HoN - hard to learn, hard to master.
I would've suggested Bioware's Wrath of Heroes (set in the Warhammer universe), but that's been long dead so my only suggestions now are DOTA and LoL. I've heard many bad things about the latter's community but those things were from WoW's community, so I'm not sure I'll believe them.
I'd also like to know what other MOBAs are out there, because I'm not too fond of just having two choices, and neither of them are deathmatch MOBAs but rather top-down strategy games.

Defense of The Ancients (DOTA)is one of my favorite games of all time. But recently a revamped version of it has come out. You need to pay in order to play Heroes of Newereth (HON), but it supposedly has better graphics, gameplay, etc.I have played both games, but I'm still undecided as to pay for...

Is League of Legends the best MOBA?

What is the difference between DOTA and MOBA?I'm pretty sure both of these game types fall under the real time strategy genre, but I find that I'm confused every time a gaming article mentions one. I know that DOTA started as a warcraft 3 mod and ballooned into its own thing, but what is MOBA? Are...
