      Owh sry, wrong side XD as i was saying, HoN is a 100% copied from Dota ==' like literally copied.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      LoL is better period.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I prefer a game where the developers are concern to the "gamer". They make new setting for color blind people, they create forum, they create banning option to ban annoying and bad attitude players and more.

      That is why I choose LOL :

      I play HON, and sadly I can make a thesis that proves HON is a copy cat of DOTA. bad game, that's piracy. :(

      Aside from that, tha ladder system do not really work accurately, the HON's developers do not listen to gamers forum, and more complains to follow.

      Moreover, if we scrap out the complains, good evidence of playing HON is not significantly avialable.

      do you guys know lol was realesed before hon

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      do you guys know lol was realesed before hon

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Better play red alert 1 from playing HoN

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      neither different strokes for different folks. i know you hon players are angry because league has a bigger fan base and we can sometimes be dicks but that does not mean its better or worse we should all just love are games not hate others.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      lol is better because its easier to play and hon has the worst game community in lol u can there is a lot of leavers and in hon there is a lot of thraSHTALKERS SO I PREFER LOL BECAUSE LOL PLAYERS ARE always acceptable if they win or lose

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      HoN is harder? i dont think so LoL HAS ALOT MORE SKILLSHOTS THEY ARE -SKILL-BASED SHOTS!!! meaning you need better aim in LoL

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      LoL is alot better since there is too much gore in HoN you pretty much cant see shit + everybody says HoN graphics is better than LoL, it is but HoN's Graphics are really really dark makking you see pretty much nothing in LoL the graphics are smooth allowing u to see exactly whats going on, i dont see much HoN reviews on Pro Plays, Do you know why? Beacuse there is no fu**ing commentator that can see anything whats going on ecspiecally in teamfights i see alot of of LoL reviews of Pro plays beacuse its easy to tell who is doing what

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      League of Legends is just more fun! Anyone who says it's not competitive obviously hasn't played at a high level. People who join are set (at first) with low level players. If you've played other MOBA style games, you obviously are going to have an advantage. However, if you keep playing, it will even out and become very, very intense.

        HoN is more better on the fact that it has no p2w feature, only avatars(much better than shitty lol RE-SKINS). Aswell as better graphics, faster paced gameplay, more competitive, All heroes are free to choose, all 120. And to the LoL kids that think it copied Dota off Piracy, a valve member branched off and helped create HoN.

        P.S we can destroy trees.

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Screw that DOTA 2 FTW

      • TheFranco 3 years ago

        HoN is definitely better. I do believe that some of those in LoL are players from HoN who've become irritated in their first play of HoN. I promise you, it does get better once you adjust with the community and the style of the game.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        HON is better, everyone who suck in HoN or saying that is is imbalanced those guys who tried HoN got owned by others a couple of times, that's my observation on my cafe,( i have internet/gaming cafe).. and most kids like LOL lol

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        LoL is more like old school yui-gi-oh champs, and easier to jam to, more role based ( Jungler, adc.ap, etc)

        LoL has a bigger population so the more likely you are going to trolls and afkers or what not.

        Matchmaking system is a bet of Joke in Rank ( hate SoloQ, never again).

        HoN is more serious and realistic with gameplay, and for the real gamers.

        MMR is shown is a plus here and more systemitc, not shown in LoL so it is a mixed bag who you get in Lol.

        HoN is better to learn first despite LoL easiness.

        Finally depending what you want in MOBA you will get:

        LoL for the people who dont give a fcuk , eg a casual Gamer

        HoN for people who love the competitive gameplay

        HoN for me

        LoL I play every now and again, but really hate the noob calling.

        pop

        LoL is Bigger, does not mean better, it is the quality that counts.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Well I'm actually a good moba player. So hon is better IMO. I've noticed a lot of bads play lol. Ill try it out eventually

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        HoN is a 100% copied from Dota ==' like literally copied.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Sayin LoL is better than Hon is like saying Xbox 360 has better graphics and more features. They are both great, but no comparison.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        HoN is better because it has in game chat, Moves are alot more detailed, Banning system is better, Heroes look way better than LoL, Game play over-all looks amazing, You can use players guides in the game instead of trying to remember other players guides online, Each hero is different in every way, and HoN doesn't copy any designs from LoL. If you notice that all the new champions in LoL that is coming out HoN have they way before LoL did. I don't know why players from LoL would say that HoN is stealing their champions. If you haven't played HoN in the Beta and LoL at the same time, you wouldn't know.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        For me HON . HON is FOR PROFESSIONAL GAMER ONLY . HON HAVE MANY DETAILED THAT ONLY PRO CAN UNDERSTAND . LOL IS SO EASY TO PLAY FREE TP Wtf. Fuck You . LOL players .

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        neither different strokes for different folks. i know you hon players are angry because league has a bigger fan base and we can sometimes be dicks but that does not mean its better or worse we should all just love are games not hate others.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        HON basically is more awesome i should say because it has the most awesome graphics and some awesome redesigns and u easily know when ur in fucking trouble not like lol u have to put your face on the goddamn screen plus lol animation for kids and like the same characters over and over THE REASON WHY LOL IS FAMOUS BECAUSE THEY CAME FROM DOTA CREATORS HON CAME FROM ITSELF BUT I HAVE TO SAY BOTH GAMES ORIGINATED FROM DOTA MOTHERFUCKERSSS!!!!!!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        LOL?? BETTER THAN HON??? AHAHAHHA PLEASE DONT MAKE ME LAUGH HON IS BETTER IT HAS BETTER GRAPHICS (MOR MATURED THAN LOL) EASILY BROWSING ITEMS AND FOR JESUS CHRIST THERE ARE A LOT OF CHARACTERS FOR FREE! NO SHIT SHERLOCK BUT HON BETTER LOL IS FOR LIL BITCHES!!!!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        The only reason LoL was ever justifiably better was because it was free to play, so there was no harm in playing it even if it sucks. now, hon is free to play, so there is no reason to play lol. lol's graphics are cartoony and silly, hon's graphics are alot closer to the original dota(wc3) and that's the first moba i played.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        In HON you need more skill, it's harder and more serious gameplay for many reasons like:

        1)You have to deny creeps and towers for less gold and exp on enemy team

        2)The trees where u can hide-escape-juke are much more skilled u gotta know the paths or cut a tree to pass over etc

        3)there is a courier and u can upgrade it for getting ur items in time(having control of multible units)

        4)Items in HON have abilities u can activate so u have the 4 abilites of your character and u can have 1-6 other abilities of ur items(like ghost marchers--->boots which if u active em u get unitwalking and more movement speed for like 6 seconds).

        Those are some of the facts i prefer HON over LOL, btw i have played them both..

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        stupid sure is HoN lar!LoL is only for kid!They said HoN like dota?Nope dota moore worse!!!!!LoL graphic like cartoon Hon graphic more nice man~~~~

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        lol is full of little racist annoying ragging kids

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        You cant beat hon?

        Hon is like the best game out there. No noobs, and you cant pick the same hero ! you dont need to buy champions/heroes to play them. in lol you get like 7 champions/heroes and you can only choose from that. HON FTW

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        GUYS GUYS GUYS, LOL? BETTER? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ZZ, HON HAS THE GRAPHICS, AND DON'T REASON CRAP "cause its hard" WHAT THE HELL?

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        hon!!!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        LoL is 2Ez Hon is wayyyy better

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        HON

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        in LoL if u have rune it's OP meaning EVERYONE can be CARRY

        how pathetic what's the use of support being a carry

        EVERYONE is carry it's pathetic in HoN it's well balance

        and i admit it the community is sucks that's the only bad thing :)

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        LoL is cute and cartoonish, and appeal to people that likes the disney-experience of the game-genre. Slow moving, cool features and sweet moving. Good meta-game, and loads of roads to custom your game.

        HoN is much more fast-paced, and quite more agressive in its bare attitude. The community is broken and bad-mouthed, but the game demands more attention and speedy play than LoL, and the cuteness if off, it appeal more raw and direct, and HoN is a "no-nonsense" game than LoL. Which heroes you like is a matter of taste, but as competitive player i clearly prefer HoN on all levels

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        LoL is a: casual, unskilled, noobfriendly, shit-game. By retards.for retards.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Well, lol is just failed cartoon, easy to play and retarded. HoN is for pros!

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        LoL is for faggot 12 year olds who have no positioning skill what so ever, Its a simplified version of Dota for retards basicly.

          I've played both and I really found HoN more enjoyable, especially once you've got a hang with the community, which can be very harsh in the early stages. Haha! But people do have their opinions.
