    Another option is League of Legends. Both games offer slightly different experiences on the DOTA hero defense game. From what ive heard HoN is more like DOTA than LoL.

    I've got 3 keys myself. People who have played both have seen to like LOL more because its an evolution of DOTA compared to HON which is basically Dota with a new skin.

    I played both and can say that it's a very good description. LoL is also easier for new players with enough high end game play elements to make it very competitive as well.

    LoL is coming out in the first week of October last I heard, very solid game and it's free.

    HoN is a direct rip off of dota. So players who have been playing dota for some time, are either going to LOVE HoN because it IS a direct rip off, or HATE it because it brings no new elements to the game besides the purdy graphics.

    LoL or League of Legends on the other hand is a totally different style map. LoL is very similar in that heros compete for dominance in killing the opposing enemies base. But that is where the similarities end. LoL uses a summoner system, which the player controlling the champion is considered the summoner . Using runes upon leveling, which can help boost a champions stats, as well as giving the summoner mastery points, and summoner special abilities. All are gained upon reaching certain levels. HoN does not have anything of the sort.

    LoL is just as competitive as HoN is, the game is more user friendly. The only flaw that some may see are the graphics. Both are beautiful games, but HoN features that grunge, realistic type style to it. While LoL features cell shading which some people may not like. But are going to be free games upon release. But here is the kicker.

    LoL for XoO already has around 30+ people playing, and have around 15+ actives who are on every day. As HoN has 2... maybe....

    I've been playing HoN for a few months and it's great. I have invites available if anyone wants to try the game, just PM me. Basically now, Demigod, LoL and HoN are all three DotA style games in one way or another. Personally I prefer HoN to LoL and I kinda hate Demigod.

    I wouldn't normally call games with micro transactions free. Since they usually have something you have to buy to even play competitively.

    I'm just wondering if you have played HoN/looked at the features of the game before you started bashing it.

    HoN is also not exact copy of DotA, theres a number of new heroes, two new maps. Dedicated servers to host games on. Eventually ability to make new maps. Match-making... Who knows what else once they are done solidifying the game.

    It also doesn't look like ass which is a big plus.
