    I love the game, but there are a lot of mean people that play it. It seems like if you don't do well, then your own teammates will make fun of you endlessly instead of providing helpful suggestions.

    Decent game, but you need to play with the people you know and people you can talk to, playing with random people is such a pain most of the time.

    There are quite a few noobs, but not as many as LoL. Although it's definitely easier to play with other people than it is to pub, the built-in voip is fairly useful when you can get people to follow directions.
    There are clans that will let any non-idiot join, and there's even a clan to teach newer players (LN).
    Plus, once you get to higher PSR it's much more competitive and interesting.
    By the way, my name in game is Bli

    Disagree. I played both (stopped after HoN CB) and found the LoL community to be better. Marginally.

    I still prefer DotA to HoN but right now LoL has my interests (playing in the Alienware tourney atm)

    Meh. The fact that you can't deny creeps in LoL makes the laning phase far less interactive as you can try to harass, but really you're just trading free farm.
    I recently got to the semi-finals of the alienware tourny for HoN. Honestly, I prefer the competitive HoN environment much to that of LoL.

    Psr ~1760 (just for reference)

    Totally agree with this. I like the mechanics and gameplay feel in HoN over LoL

    LoL is still a great game though. Ijust prefer HoN

    HoN is a great game, and worthy of being DotA's successor.

    LoL is a wow-port into the genre, retardifying© the game for the majority of players who are trash. The community isn't any better in LoL, its just that the lack of in-game VoiP prevents you from hearing most of the verbal complaining that actually occurs.

    I'm in game when I'm not on BC2, add me if you wanna...
