It shares a lot with Smite in terms of differences from dota/lol I think. It has replaced smite as my go to MOBA now though. I was playing lol last night and it all just seemed a bit...overwrought after the nicer simplicity of hots and smite.
Deffo has it's faults, but I'm more than willing to stick around while they sort them out! And holy crap brightwing is fun!
