As DOTA 2 nears release, Riot Games seems to have taken full notice. League of Legends lead champion designer Ryann Scott had some choice words about the Action RTS competitor and why their offering is better.
“This is a cool game but we think there are certain improvements that make the gameplay not only more interesting to read on the screen, but also make it actually more interesting when you fight other people. More action, more back and forth moments instead of the fight being determined by the first person out of position and everything being very deterministic. We feel our approach is a way to take what was cool and take it to the next stage of it and I think there are far more evolutions out there that hopefully we’ll get to explore a lot of with League of Legends, but I think there’s a lot of room for growth in this genre.” - League of Legends developer, Ryann Scott.
