    Massive Online Battle Arena or some shit like that.

    I hated my life while playing that game. There was so much fuss going on about that game. 'It's so much better than LoL", "It's way more fun than Lol", "There's so many different features compared to LoL", etc. Yeah, I hated it. Stupid friends trying to get me to play games I don't like. -.-

    The OP question is subjective, so I'll leave here my personal opinion:
    I use to avoid this kind of game. Even when they're good, they take away much more time than they should.

    If you're willing to invest a lot of time and yourself. Going through studying some mechanics like magic damage, physical damage, pure damage, mixed damage, hp reduction, projectile speed, attack animations, turnrates, disables(stuns) and many more. Including 100+heroes and another hundred more items, and their interactions with other each other. And if you have friends or don't rage at other people easily.
    Then you can go dota 2.

    DOTA 2 gives you all the characters to start.
    DOTA 2 > LoL just for that.
    Wish I could play it. Even if both are archaic I do appreciate the classics sometimes when i'm burned out of real MOBAing.
