Copied League of Legends Champions (left), and the original Heroes from Dota 2 (right) (1/3)
This post when people don’t even realize that Dota 2 came out after League of Legends did.
Hell Ashe has been around since the day League of Legends Started.
League of Legends Released in 2009
Dota 2 Released in 2011
its all a matter of perspective, i play both games, because Ashe is downright a copy of Drow ranger from DotA1, but the only similarity on playstyle are frozen arrows and aesthetic, black clothes?, white hair?, archer?, pretty much the same as Traxex from DotA1 on that aspect.
-rageborn mundo was launched in 2012, so the inspiration is clearly Axe from DotA2/Dota1, nothing to say here.
-gyrocopter is a different case, since Corki it’s almost from the beggining of the league on 2009 if i correctly recall, Gyrocopter was launched on patch 6.68, around july/2010, so technically DotA copied LoL
- broodmother since DotA1 is a big freaking spiders who hatches spiderlings and spiders (specially the black widow) are a recurrent theme in fantasy and games, also Elise has a totally different skillset and mechanics, and here OP forgot to include that Elise has a human form, so nope, not valid comparison.
- Doom and Aatrox… well, similar color schemes, big freaking swords, and then i stop counting, damn, almost every game fantasy themed have at least one of these fuckers around (demon with devilish sword), because they are badass, also skillset totally different.
Also, lets remember that DotA2 is a revamped version of DotA, so they will OBVIOUSLY tend to create similar models to what they created on DotA1, and a lot of people that worked on DotA are currently working on Riot games, among them Guinsoo, who designed a lot of the champions and heroes of both games, so there is no surprise that they sometimes will overlap in the aesthetic or the mechanic aspect.
I love both games, and each one has its own flavor and mechanics, haters and lovers, but pleaaaaaaaaaaaase don’t fucking mix the two of them and start a war which one copied the other, because both of these games keep growing and are unique in his own way, and are aimed for different public inside the mobas, thank you
