GREW but what about the total numbers there already? Percents don't mean shit. 258% out of 100 is still bigger growth than 508% out of 10.

"The most popular game broadcast on Twitch is League of Legends, easily the most popular esport in the world." Citation from that very article. You're just taking the numbers convenient for you, completely leaving out the fact that LoL has the bigger crowd and is the most viewed.

LoL has custom games too, plus another variety of game modes, with new coming out. DotA 2 has nothing similar to domination either. You're comparing apples and oranges there.

And what do they do outside of this massive one time tournament? LoL has a running paid professional league through the whole year, their players get actual wages outside of prize money. They have hundreds of thousands of viewers just for the weekly league matches, it goes to millions for any bigger tournaments, the list just goes on... LoL is easily on top in eSports right now. Simple as that.

Reread my first post friend. When did I claim Dota was bigger? Bigger != better too remember.

Try telling that growth rates and percentages don't mean anything to sponsors and investors.

You don't technically have custom games. Sure, you have private games where you make up your own games and the rules are player-enforced, like HideNSeek. But you have no dev-supported tools for working with the game engine to create entirely new experiences.

And we have loads of well-paid leagues and smaller tourneys, which is why, even excluding TI4, the average payout for a tourney is over 2.5x greater in Dota than League. Btw, all professional esports teams pay their players a wage, in every esport.

Absolutely, League has the highest viewer count, I never said otherwise. But is it the best community to be apart of? Not a chance.

Hands down, LoL simply has the better competitive scene. It's being done on a bigger scale and more professionaly. Which game you like more is up to everyone's own preference, but you gotta give it to Riot in terms of eSports.

Dota 2 grew 508% and LoL 258%.

You're making comments about the esports scene and need a source to prove The International has the biggest prize pools? What gives?

Fair enough, LoL releases new heroes about the same rate as Dota. But LoL will not have anything to compare to custom games, which should be implemented in a few months.

And a $10m prize pool, television broadcasting of the games, and having the front page of the NY Times dedicated to TI doesn't make it the biggest, most professional esports tourney ever?
